I need to check my recipes as i remember learning how to make this cake from that Indonesian lady. I have not seen that cake while I was in Medan.Medan is quite near to Malaysia. But from my place in sabah I have to fly to kuala lumpier to take a connecting flight to Medan. It took less Than an hour from Kala to Medan.

I used to have two classmates from Medan. They always told me about Medan - what does the city look like, how they live their lives, and I always remember Lake Toba as they said it is a beautiful lake. But I have never visited Medan. I also had a closed friend from Surabaya so I thought that I would visit there one day. How time flies!
