Did you ever remember about snacks in your childhood? This thing is called ‘Putu Bambu’, a traditional cylindrical-shaped steamed cake – That’s what wikipedia said.. hehe – It is made of rice, palm sugar and steamed on a bamboo tube. Then it is served with grated coconut on top of it. One thing I really remember about this snack is its sound. The seller go around the town with his bike while steaming the putu in his rear of the bike. And we used to scream “Attention the train’s coming!”. Its sounds just like the old train that I used to see in cowboys film. Putu Bambu is still common nowadays and you can still find it easily in every corner of the town.
