Calling all Indonesian Cooks: Recipes in English Please

On my article about good Indonesian food in Singapore, I was mentioning about some weblogs containing Indonesian food recipes, such as Inong's Dapur Bunda and Nisi's Food Corner. One of the visitors from Germany, Angelica, added comments saying that it was too bad that those recipes are written in Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language), instead of English. She and her husband really love Indonesian food, however it's quite difficult for them to find cookbooks or recipes of Indonesian food in English.

I also noticed that most (if not all) of other blogs containing Indonesian food recipes, which I subscribe through Bloglines, are in Bahasa Indonesia. Those include Dhonatneth's Kitchen (which now has been renamed to Dhonatneth's Apa Kabar) and Dapur Wati, on top of the two I have mentioned earlier (Dapur Bunda and Nisi's Food Corner).

So, Inong, Nisi, Dhona, Wati and many other Indonesian bloggers who are also great cooks, are you ready to take up this challenge? :) When will you write good Indonesian food recipes in English? :) :)

WHUAHEHEHEHE... Blogspot is the place for me to talk non-sense. That is the reason why I changed the title to Dhonatneth apa kabar.
My actual Kitchen recipe is in Tripod, which you can find the link from my blogspot.
Long time back, I had wrote my recipes both in English and Indonesia, but in fact all my visitors was seldom goes to my English recipes, that is the reason I stopped wrote in English. And my other excuses it because I am too lazy maintain few blog in the same time… Hehehehhe…
Anyway, by looking at the picture of mine, and the visitor who not understand Indonesia language, they can leave the message or email to me. I will be happy to translate the recipes for them… hehehehhehe…(good idea hor??) (^_^)
