break time

Before resuming my studies, let me share some stories that I have in these couple of days.

I haven't surfed on people's blogs for weeks, and it just happened that Friendster gave me a notice on updated blog. So I opened this blog, not realizing whose blog it was. It was my high school teacher's blog. As I read and read and kept reading, I realized that it's so beautiful, I mean her feeling and dedication as a mother and wife. And her husband, who was also my high school teacher, gave her a comment in one of her post which is so so sooooo romantic. So nice...

Anyway, onto the next topic. As a part of my continuing research, please answer this question: Do you think avocado juice is an Indonesian food? (or should I say drink.) By this I mean no other countries ever have avocado juice. It's just that everytime I talk about avocado juice to people from other countries, their reaction is like 'huh?! Avocado juice!???' So I had this little research and here is the result. My baby darling -and he's from Malaysia- said he never tasted avocado not until he came here and ate sushi. Ms. YL, also from Malaysia, didn't even know what avocado was. Ms. A, from Japan, said that avocado is only for California rolls (a sushi type). I also remembered my sis said Mrs. PP and Mr. SP, from USA, never tried avocado juice. So, my conclusion is avocado juice is an Indonesian drink. Is this right? Or do you know if avocado juice is from the Netherlands? (since Indonesia was colonialized by the Dutch so I thought maybe we got an influence from them.)


  1. menurut logika saya sih begini...

    Dalam bahasa inggris, Juice itu artinya sari buah (Bagian airnya deh intinya...). Nah sedangkan alpukat kan mau kamu peres kaya apa juga gak bakal keluar deh cairan jenis apapun dari situ. Makanya bule pada bingung kali kalo denger yang namanya avocado juice.

    Sedangkan buat orang indo, jus buah2an itu hasil buah diblender. Jadi dari arti kata jus aja dah beda kan?

    Eh, guru mane yang punya blog? Guruku juga bukan?

  2. Jadi kangen jus alpokat... *ngiler*

  3. Never heard of avogado juice in Macao/HK/ China neither! :D

  4. it exists here and quite popular (singapore) though some of them found it 'exotic'.

    yep, avocado in salad and sushi is just divine.

    But they don't know that sometimes we ate/drink it with coffee powder.. certainly divine!! *pengen*

  5. Avocado in some part of Malaysia is also popular. It is more common in Sabah rather than the Peninsular Malaysia. Don't judge as a WHOLE Malaysia. I eat avocado almost every single day of my life in Malaysia.
