The weather is unpredictable lately. The sun is shining in the morning but the rain comes hardly in the noon. Bandung is located near equator so it has a tropical climate. It should be the dry season we have here now. But as I said earlier, we still have rain.

In the dry season, the air become so hot and dry. We should eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. We have tropical fruits here such as star fruit, papaya, pineapple, mango, and kedondong.

We here have a special salad made from the fruits I've mention above plus  bengkoang and  raw sweet potato. We choose the unripe ones, peel them, and slice them thinly. For dressing, we make it from palm sugar, fried peanuts, chili, and other small ingredients. We call the salad : rujak. It looks like the photo at the right. Hmmm ... you must try!
