Easy Sweet Snack to Greet Spring Time


It has been a long time since I posted my last blog. I am most thrilled that this week is the first week of spring, here in Sweden. Although the first day of spring was quite disappointing since it was freezing cold with wind and snow, these past two days have been awesome. The sun was shining bright and I could see little baby flowers on the green patches. I was walking down the street just outside Ullevi with my boyfriend and we were so happy to see yellow flower buds on the pedestrian ways.

The lovely weather in Gothenburg got me feeling a little bit more excited to make sweet munchies than before. That is why today, I baked a simple and easy snack to greet spring time. I call it “Mini Napoleon Puffs”

Prepare the ingredients nicely :)

Ingredients (for 12 Puffs) :

3 sheets of Puff pastry
2 tablespoons of Almond
1 egg, whisked
Strawberry jam
Nutella / chocolate spread
1 banana

Method :

1. Preheat oven with 175C, using top and bottom heat.
2. Roll the puff pastry until 2mm thin, cut into 7.5cm x 7.5cm squares.
3. Brush puff pastries with egg, top with sliced almond.
4. Put puff pastries on a baking paper on a baking pan, put it in the oven, bake for 20 mins.

Looking at them puffing is always exciting!

5. Take out all of the baked pastries, wait 10 mins until it is not too hot.

Woohoo! They came out nice and golden.

6. For the first six puffs, separate the puff pastries, spread half with strawberry jam on one side, put the other half on top.

Yum! Strawberry Jam!

7. Separate the rest of the puffs, spread with Nutella / chocolate spreads and sliced banana on one side, put the other half of the puff on top.

Classic chocolate banana is always a great combo!

8. (Optional) Garnish with powdered sugar.
9. Enjoy!

There you go! Your sweet snack is ready for you to enjoy the blooming day! :D

*PS. For today, I also made special dinner for my boyfriend and me with Svensk Köttbullar, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Brunsås on the menu. Here is the sneak peek.

Should I share this recipe ?

Should I give up Instagram

It is day 64 of 2018. 
What it means to me that it has been almost three months since I woke up in my bed, thinking about what and where will I be this year. I was looking at my window with deep thoughts. Two lights across the street were faulty, while one was ready to follow. Today I was having such a good time with my boyfriend and my closest friends in Gothenburg. I tried to reflect what I have seen in the past 63 days and how just one thing changed my life.
The first day of 2018, I have made a promise to myself to at least try to start quitting lousy habit - in my case, it was Instagram. Many of you have asked me, why did I deactivate my account. Some of you even said you missed the whole Swedish Journey that I have shared. Some of you also wondered if something terrible happened to me, so I had to deactivate my account.
I was very active before. I shared everything, for the sake of starting a conversation with friends, or just for the convenience of "backup"-ing my picture…

Oseng Tempe Bali - Indonesian Delicacy Recipe Part 1!

Hello everyone!
One of my favourite thing about studying at Chalmers is the international environment where I get to meet lots of people from around the world and of course - to try new delicious food from lots of places! Since my friends and I have been having lots and lots of international dinners, I learned a lot about Indonesian dishes here. Before, I actually never knew how to make them (in Indonesia we have the tendency to buy food at restaurants or food stalls because it is so cheap and it saves lots of time). Now that I learned to cook some of the dishes, I actually feel like I respect more and I couldn't be more proud that we have lots of good food with such interesting way of cooking!

During the latest international dinner(s) I had with my close friends, I cooked Oseng Tempe Bali and Klepon. It was a surprise that everyone liked it! Therefore, I would like to share the recipe of Oseng Tempe Bali and Klepon that I made here. Of course, they did not taste 100% the same with …

Titis dan Tempe

Hai semuanya !

Today I will post about the latest activity that I am proud of (because normally I wouldn't even think of doing this). I am going to talk about my day with TEMPE !! (Btw maaf ya bahasanya agak campur-campur for this blog. I am too friggin' excited to share this, I ignore all of the language stuffs).

I am talking about tempe-food not Tempe, my friend.

This is my friend, his name is Tempe. Tempe is a guy. He has a band with Wednes called Rabu. Tempe wants to get his scholarship too, soon. Tempe is nice.  Be like Tempe.


Maaf untuk intermezzo barusan yang agak tidak penting.

YOW! Now I will start to write about tempe the food. So some of you may know that I will be going abroad very soon (still waiting for my visa to be granted - fingers crossed, toes crossed, everything crossed). The thing that my family and my friends are concerned of is that I will be missing a lot of things from Indonesia, especially the food (ayam geprek, rawon, sup ikan Manado, soto Betawi, pece…
