Ramadan 1433: Indonesia
For Ramadan this year, we brainstormed, discussed, and agreed (before Ramadan of course) that they would pick 7 Muslim countries/countries that have Muslims and research them. They have 4 days per country and H is in charge of the architecture section, N and S are in charge of the food, clothing and they all have to come up with one Powerpoint presentation.
Indonesia PPT presentation
For Indonesia, these are what they came up with.
H made a model of one type of architectural form of the masjids in Indonesia. It reminds me of the lone masjid standing tall after that Tsunami hit Acheh in 2004, subhanallah.
H’s the cardboard expert
I’m actually impressed by this. I love it.
S made the Indonesian Flag
S and N made Bahulu, though my Bahulu mold is lost amidst the many hands of Malaysian students in Colz, so they had to make do with madeline molds. It turned out okay but some are not fully cooked or maybe because the batter involved folding, S suspected that maybe she didn’t fold it properly. The taste of bahulu is there, but I think using a bahulu mold would have produced better bahulus. Bahulu is also a Malaysian dessert, but as I told the kids, Malaysia and Indonesia are very similar. To me, it’s dumb that we even have the separation, all the negative outcomes of colonization.
S found the recipe for the bahulu from My Simple Food.
