My customer not only personal but also restaurant. I supply them desserts such as Apple Pie, Spotted Dick, Rollie Pollie Jam, etc. My Apple pie even got good review in Jakarta Restaurant Review
I wish that after I renovate my home I could have production room and storage room.
Below some of my kitchen product. I use brand Mymessy Kitchen and I have advertise it on my Facebook.
Sometimes I visit a group and teach the house wife or any one who wants to learn to cook or bake. For free. Seeing them could make money and help their husband to support the family makes me happy. Mostly I teach them how to make something from left over raw material such as egg white that mostly not use by the Martabak maker ( martabak is one kind of food like pancake). I use it as raw material for cookies, cakes or poodings. And it works. And now the waste have the financial value.
I hope I could do more then this. And have a bigger chance to take them to have more valuable life. And I hope Zidisha could walk along with me.

Warm regards from Pamulang

Hi we are reminded its best not to lend too much to one person but I have decided to make an exception and lend you the whole amount so you can get the money faster. I had exactly the same problem when I was your age, nearly 2 hours commute to college, driving through traffic, it was so tiring it was hard to concentrate on my mornings first lectures. All the best for your study I hope this gets disbursed fastest. I'd be really interested to know what computer programming languages you chose and may be able to help you with some links

To Expand Cherry-Tomato Garden

Today I completed preparing the disused space between my house and my neighbour's wall. I call it the Cherry Tomato Corridor. It is 10 inches deep and almost 4ft wide. The bed is lined with compost and topped with humus-rich soil. It took all morning to lay the rock path. The Cherry tomatoes have successfully germinated in my shed and will be ready for transplanting in slightly over two weeks from today.
