Dadiah - Traditional Yogurt from West Sumatra

When we went to Padang last month, we splurged on traditional Minang food that we missed so much, such as Sate Padang, Bebek Lado Ijo (with happy seasoning), many kinds of Sambal Lado and Gulai, and the special grilled fish from Lake Maninjau, grilled banana, and sanjai crackers.

Come Join Us: Pilgrimage to Cuba

In light of our preparation to visit Cuba in December 2006, Rani and I have been reading so many books about the place as well as watching films with the same subject.

If you have an interest in Cuba, Fidel Castro or Che Guevara, I'd like to recommend you to watch a documentary film on Fidel Castro that I borrowed from National Library in Singapore. The film title is "Fidel: The Untold Story", a film by Estella Bravo readily available at Amazon.com. Please, let me know what you think about the film, good or bad.

Have you been to Argentina or Cuba?

The great thing about having your own website (or blog) is that you could also post your question and, hopefully, get genuine responses.

So, please allow me to ask you some questions (you can respond in comment section):
