Pasar Bintaro

This morning on the way to school, we asked the family chauffeur (driver) to find bubur. We stopped on a street

20130618-081137.jpg we strolled up to the nearby market. It was barely 5:30am and the market was so quiet! Apparently by 7am, it is very crowded and busy. It was lovely being so quiet because I could take photos easily without being jostled by customers nor having to time my photos between people walking past.
We went into the market to look for food to take to school for the teachers who are probably hungry after their early start for school. We headed straight to the cake stall which sold the most amazing variety of both traditional and modern cakes. Some were familiar, dadar gulung (green pancakes), kue lapis (layer cake), but most were unfamiliar.

20130618-081933.jpgI have since had the chance to try the ones we bought and they are all delicious. The chocolate and white roll is filled with chocolate and actually for someone like me who rarely eats chocolate, it was really yummy. The green and white square cake has the same filling as the dadar gulung which was a pleasant surprise.
While Bu Sovia was paying for the cakes, I wandered around and took some photos for you:

20130618-082605.jpgOutside the market we found a banana stall selling so many varieties of bananas!

We then headed back to school where we sat in the principals office while outside there is much activity as a group of 40 students are today flying to Europe to participate in a multicultural event held in various towns in Northern Italy.
