Received some message from Dwiana of The Adventure of My Cooking Diary, my Foodie fellow. Together with Fitri and Dhi, she has coordinated Foodie Photography Event “Red & White”. Red and White is the colors of Republic of Indonesia flag. The Red and White or known as Sang Saka Merah Putih is the national flag of Indonesia. Red represents bravery, while white represents the spiritual element.

The flag itself is based on the flag of the 13th century of Majapahit empire. This empire was an Indianized kingdom based in eastern Java from 1293 to around 1500, which was the last major Hindu realm in the Malay archipelago. It is considered as one of the greatest states in Indonesian history. The successful era of this empire was from 1350 to 1389 when it dominated other kingdoms in the southern Malay Archipelago, Borneo, Sumatra, Bali, and the Philippines.

The month of August is getting closed now. People who live in the North part, are familiar with the warm feelings of this month bring. This also means mid summer for some…….. vacations to others…. or sitting on a beach watching sunset with a glass of margarita in hand for a few.

However, do you know that in August, some years ago, a couple had their parachute wedding for the first time in the world, a man name Priestly discovered oxygen and Galileo demonstrated his first telescope to the Venetian lawmakers. Therefore, it was also the day when Indonesia declared independence from the Dutch Colonial, August 17, 1945.

In the spirit of celebrating the Independence Day, the freedom in every aspect of life hopefully, we would like to see the creative spirit within YOU. If you have a talent in cooking or baking, food styling or food photography, show it to us, flaunt it.

Even if you don’t think you have a talent, just send it anyway. We would like to see it! The theme is “Red and White” but it may be stretched as far as you can think of. Anything red and white, visual or concept wise, taste wise… anything. You don’t have to be an Indonesian to participate this event.

Be creative as much as you can. There are some cool door prizes waiting for you. Remember, winning isn’t everything, but having fun is. So let’s have fun and let that creativity spilling over. One participant can only send one entry.

  1. Hi Pepy, this sounds fun, and I'll have to try to become imaginative (!) and come up with something to do with the red and white theme to help you celebrate. My photograph would not be stellar by any means, but the food might be OK! Cheers.
