And as I recall the initial stumbles:
like having the supermarket staff laugh at me when I ask them what lengkuas is;
or adding cup after cup of asam jawa into a dish, only to realise that asam gelugur is something entirely different;
I realise that some of the ingredients that I use here
may sound rather exotic to a few of you.

Likewise, do contact me if I’ve left something out,
or if you know a better trick.
