I've been craving this veggie for a few month now, but never have a chance to look for them in Asian grocery.
Last Saturday, we went to Forest hill shopping mall, the have huge renovation.
I remember when i first went there with my baby, it wasn't attractive shopping mall, the only thing people would go there with they kids, probably for the inside playground. I tried to change my baby's nappy (diapers), and i saw a little cockroach on the change room, Huey... scary...!!.
But now, i would spend more time there and on the changing room, they renew the whole interior, feel so comfortable being there.
Anyway, apart from that they also replace some store, like that Asian grocery, next to the famous fruit shop (big competition), the veggies and the price is reasonable, that's why I'm happy to be back there again.
When i told my Mom that i cook this veggie, she said "you would still eat them? ,do you still like them?" i said "Of course Mom, I've been craving for this food for a long time" and she just laughing afterward , because this veggie is very cheap there and easy to find, but i missed them so much.
She think i now my taste bud is change because i live in Australia, No Mom i Love Indonesian food, will and always.
