I had coconut lempeng with well cooked sauce today at the same place just outside Putrajaya gate..but ordered ice Milo (less ice)..unfortunately the Indon lady who served us gave me a good advice..do not drink too much ice water when we are pregnant coz it will make our baby grow big (macrosomia ...? )..and hard to deliver, and she told me that she didn't even sip any cold drink during her confinement period...and guess what ..she consumed 9kg of home made jamu in 44 days..her slim and well proportion body is a good testimonial...9kg..!! its not a joke..I think most Indonesian are very discipline when it comes to treatment and rules during confinement..I could not finish my Nona Roguy pill last year, even in small dose..
Most Indonesian are concern about their beauty and health especially after giving birth, that is why they could still fit into their pre pregnancy kebaya..unlike others who have to change their wardrobe..and size..hehehe..
I came across this Javanese idiom 'Ngadi Sarira' -to maintain the body to be always in perfect condition is of prime important.
Jamu is a traditional herbal medicine of various type of plants eg leaves, root, flowers or barks and it comes in different form : powder,pills, liquid etc..and it is believes could cleanse our body an bright out the inner shine..
