I hosted an Indonesia Eats Cook-Up from September 1 to 30. In this event, participants had to use recipes that I posted between January 2009 to August 2010 in this blog. Thank you to all participants for trying my recipes. I’m happy to see your feedback about those recipes.

Thanks to Alexandra for this giving away certificate. To be drawn for a $70 CSN gift certificate, participants must be resided in Canada and US. However, one participant is from Brunei. Maya just wanted to try my recipe and be included in the round-up. Here, they are the participants. FYI, all pictures are linked to each participant’s post, except 2 pics of Tricia.
