I realized that lately I have been slacking off in this project.
With everything which are going on in my life at the moment : the relocation, settling down, getting the paperwork done, registering kids to new school, arranging their after school activities, meeting people, looking for new job and projects, etc, it seems that picking up a camera and looking for ideas on what and how to shoot becomes lower and lower in my priority list.
I am now kicking myself and my brain to stay focus on this self-created project of mine.

Introducing a very popular street food, ‘arum manis’, the Indonesian version of cotton candy, which is always served sandwiched in between 2 slices of crackers. Some people also call it ‘grandma’s hair’, due to its similarity to white hair. Unlike cotton candy which has very smooth texture, the Indonesian counterpart is rougher.
