Mount Merapi & Banana Cheese Roll

Welcome to My World!

Gambar ini kuambil pada tanggal 4 November 2010, jam 07.55, dari sekitar rumah Mama, ketika membawa Bebi Vendra berjalan-jalan pagi. Gunung Merapi memang sedang bergejolak dan terus mengeluarkan awan panas serta material vulkanik lainnya. Rumah Mamaku, yang terletak sekitar 21 kilometer dari lereng Merapi, tidak terlalu banyak kena hujan abu vulkanik. Mungkin karena arah angin.

Sepanjang hari itu, aku melewatkan waktu bersama Bebi Vendra dan Yosie, adikku. Aku pun membuat roti pisang keju.

This photo was taken on November 4th at 07.55, when I was stroller-ing with Bebi Vendra around my Mama’s home. Mount Merapi’s activity was very intense. My Mama’s home, located about 25 kilometers, was not having too much volcanic ash. Maybe because of the wind directions.

That day, I spent times with Bebi Vendra and Yosie, my beloved brother. I made my own version of banana cheese roll.

Bahan-bahannya:
500 gram tepung terigu
setengah sendok teh garam
4 sendok makan gula pasir
1 sendok teh ragi instan
1 sendok makan minyak goreng
30 mililiter air hangat
8 buah pisang kepok, kupas, masing-masing dibagi 2
2 lembar keju cheddar, masing-masing dibagi menjadi 8
1 sendok makan margarin

Cara membuatnya:
1. Campurkan tepung terigu dan garam.
2. Campurkan ragi instan, gula pasir dan air hangat.
3. Tambahkan ke campuran tepung terigu, sedikit demi sedikit sambil diuleni menggunakan tangan.
4. Tambahkan minyak goreng, uleni terus hingga kalis.
5. Tutup dengan serbet lembab selama 30 menit.
6. Kempeskan adonan dengan cara meninjunya.
7. Bagi adonan menjadi 16.
8. Tempelkan 1 potong keju ke 1 potong pisang. Bungkus dengan 1 bagian adonan. Ulangi hingga habis.
9. Olesi permukaan baking pan dengan margarin.
10. Tata roti di baking pan, lalu panggang dengan api kecil selama kurang lebih 1 jam. Angkat. Sajikan.

The ingredients:
500 grams wheat flour
a half tea spoon salt
4 table spoons sugar
1 tea spoon instant yeast
1 table spoon oil
30 milliliters lukewarm water
8 pieces banana, peeled, each divided into 2 parts
2 slices cheddar cheese, each divided into 8 parts
1 table spoon margarine

The directions:
1. Mix well wheat flour and salt.
2. Mix well instant yeast, sugar and lukewarm water.
3. Add it to flour mix, a little by a little, while mixing using your hand.
4. Add oil, mix thoroughly until the dough no longer sticky to your hands.
5. Cover using moisten fabric for about 30 minutes.
6. Punch the dough to release the air produced on fermentation process.
7. Divide dough into 16 portions.
8. Stick a portion of cheese on to a portion of banana. Wrap them with a portion of dough. Repeat until all banana and cheese wrapped with dough.
9. Spread the surface of baking pan with margarine.

Welcome to My World!

Sepanjang hari, kami mendengar suara gemuruh seperti petir di kejauhan. Itulah suara dari aktivitas gunung Merapi. Pada tengah malam, suaranya terdengar lebih keras. Kemudian, diikuti oleh hujan pasir dan kerikil. Inilah situasi di luar rumah, keesokan paginya. Abu vulkanik menyelimuti jalanan, tanaman, kendaraan, juga atap rumah. Demi kesehatan Bebi Vendra, aku terpaksa memperpendek liburanku dan pulang ke Tangerang.

The whole day, we heard rumbling voices like a thunder that lasts all day. That was the voice of Merapi. At midnight, we heard some louder voices. Then, followed by gravels and sands fall to earth. The morning after, I took another photo. Volcanic ash covered roads, plants, cars, also roofs. For the sake of Bebi Vendra’s health, I have to shorten my vacation in Yogyakarta.

Welcome to My World!

Antrian di Stasiun Tugu, Yogyakarta, yang tampak sesak karena banyak pelajar dan mahasiswa yang diminta pulang oleh orang tua mereka yang tinggal di kota lain. Karena Bandara Adisucipto ditutup, banyak penerbangan yang dibatalkan, sehingga terjadi penumpukan di stasiun kereta.

So many people queuing at the train station. Most of them are students from other cities. Their parents are worried, so they must go back home for a while. The airport was closed, due to volcanic ash.
