Okay, for this first 100 Thing entry, I will begin with the topic everyone loves, food.
This food can't exactly be described to be my favorite food, more like the food I (and many people from my country) can't live without; rice.
Since I was a wee little kid, I eat rice every day. Rice is there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Yeah, rice is the main food of the Indonesians. Often, I need to eat rice to justify that I have had lunch or dinner. Like, I eat a burger at 1 pm, but it doesn't count as lunch to me. It's... a snack, haha. I still have to eat rice. For example, a menu for one day will look like this:
Breakfast: rice with omelet
Lunch: rice with carrot soup and fried fish
Dinner: rice with fried chicken
Because rice is important here, Indonesians have many words for different stages of rice, like the Eskimos have many words for ice. Padi (paddy) when it's still in its plant form, beras (rice) for the hawthorns when it's ready to be cooked, and nasi (rice) when it's cooked and ready to be eaten.
Now, these are various forms of cooked rice.
You can guess which one is which. :D (Well, not you, saya22. You know this already.)
White Rice (Nasi Putih, this is the one I eat every day)
Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng) (President Obama said he likes this)
Coconut Rice (Nasi Uduk, or Nasi Lemak in Malay)
Saffron Rice, or Yellow Rice if you want the literal translation (Nasi Kuning)
