Late Lunch, Again.

Photo of a Minangkabau house as wall display.

*The Minangkabau ethnic group, also known as Minang (Urang Minang in Minangkabau language), is indigenous to the Minangkabau Highlands of West Sumatra, in Indonesia. Their culture is matrilineal, with property and land passing down from mother to daughter, while religious and political affairs are the responsibility of men (although some women also play important roles in these areas). Rumah gadang (Minangkabau: 'big house') or rumah bagonjong (Minangkabau: 'spired roof house') are the traditional homes of the Minangkabau.

This restaurant serves Indonesian and Minang cuisine. Their signature dish is the Ayam Penyet.

**Ayam Penyet is a traditional Indonesian cuisine which originates from Surabaya. It is a popular chicken dish where the fresh chicken is specially marinated with various spices and herbs . The meat is then smashed with a wooden headed hammer and deep fried until golden light brown. One of the unique feature in preparing this funny name dish is the art of frying where it is crispy from outside and juicy inside.*

We had the Ayam Penyet set, Gulai Pucuk Ubi Lemak Cili Api, with white rice; and Hot Lemon Tea and Mango Lovers Fruit Ice Blended. The food was marvellous for us, and both drinks were fantastic. Their hot lemon tea is my personal favourite. The restaurant is presentable and service was fast and good.

A Good One!

From 9gag.com, the caption said "Paul Cezanne, the Instagram great-grandfather."

Now, aint that a good one! Wahaha. Yeah, people in those era used to paint still lifes to preserve moments in their lives. Now we just post it in FB and Blogs, or simply Twit or Instagram it.

A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on).*

Note :

1. Paul Cezanne was a French artist and painter.**

2. Instagram is a free photo-sharing program and social network launched in October 2010. Its original authors were Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 12, 2012.***
