Aerogreens salad.

My ex-student who is majoring in agriculture at a university in Canada, has just started to have his own company named Aerogreens. He explained to me that Aerogreens is Indonesia's first Vertical Aeroponics farm, which means is they grow their plants in a controlled environment, to bring out the sweetness and buttery texture of their vegetables. At Aerogreens, aside from just producing our own vegetables, they make salads as well.

All their vegetables at Aerogreens are harvested fresh to order, so nothing is stored in the fridge before hand. It's pesticide free

So, here I had a try one of the salads from Aerogreens.

Pesto Chicken Salad - Rp. 50.000

The signature lettuce, grilled chicken pesto, homemade garlic croutons, topped off with garlic herb dressing.

Xi Bo Ba

About a week ago, I was so thirsty and really need a cold drink because it was a bright sunny day and the weather was very hot. I saw the Xi Bo Ba store and decided to buy it. The store was empty. No customer at all. Maybe because of the Covid19, so mostly people buy Xi Bo Ba through online service.

Brown Sugar Boba Fresh Milk - Rp. 19.000
The milk on the top is creamy and the flavor of brown sugar is nice but the boba (tapioca pearls) are too sweet and soft. This drink is quite cloying for me.

Current rate:
1 USD = Rp. 14.900

Pesto - Basil Leaves

One of my favorite pasta sauces is Pesto. I just love the aroma from the Basil leaves mixed with fresh garlic. It's so difficult for me to find fresh Basil leaves here in Jakarta and since the Covid-19 pandemic, I cannot visit any restaurants serving pasta with Pesto sauce. Thus, at the end, I decided to find Basil seeds, so I could plant it by myself. 

So, about a month ago, I bought Basil seeds at an online shop in East Java. I was so excited and directly plant the Basil seeds in a small pot on my roof garden.

The Basil plants.

Age: about 1.5 week.

Age: about 2.5 weeks

Age: about 3.5 weeks.

The color of the leaves is not as dark as the usual Basil leaves that I know. I have no idea why it is so light, but anyway, the aroma of the Basil leaves is like the normal Basil leaves. I'm just so happy that finally, I can have fresh Basil leaves from my garden and make my own Pesto sauce. Yay!

My Cooking and Baking during School Holidays 2020

It is School Holidays right now. It started two weeks ago and school will start again on the 13th of June 2020, but the students will still do the "Home Learning" because of the Covid-19 pandemic. I have no idea whether the teachers will "Work From Home" or teach online from the school because there's no announcement until now. I still cook and bake almost everyday. Here are some of the pictures of my cooking and baking.
