Food// Food-photolog: A Familiar Taste of Home

I’m finally back in Jakarta after a whirlwind three days trip to my dad’s hometown. Central Java where my dad’s from, is a serious foodie place. My dad is a serious foodie, apples don’t fall far from the tree. Anyway, we went to his hometown, Semarang and did a quick road trip to Yogyakarta and Solo. Here are a quick photo-log, food summaries let say of everything we ate…
