Bakpia


Bakpia adalah makanan yang terbuat dari campuran kacang hijau dengan gula yang dibungkus dengan tepung lalu dipanggang. Di beberapa daerah di Indonesia, makanan yang terasa legit jika dimakan ini dikenal dengan nama pia atau kue pia. Isi bakpia bisa menyesuaikan dengan keinginan konsumen di antaranya cokelat, keju, kumbu hijau, dan kumbu hitam. Bakpia yang cukup dikenal salah satunya berasal dari daerah Pathok (Pathuk), Yogyakarta.

Istilah bakpia sendiri adalah berasal dari dialek Hokkian (Hanzi: 肉餅), yang secara harfiah berarti roti berisikan daging, yaitu kata “Bak” yang berarti daging (umumnya daging babi) dan “Pia” yang berarti kue. Karena masyarakat Jogja mayoritas beragama Islam, maka barulah isi bakpia yang semula daging babi diubah menjadi kacang hijau. Kemudian rasa-rasa dari bakpia dikembangkan menjadi cokelat, keju, kumbu hijau, dan kumbu hitam.

Di desa Pathok, dulunya penduduk tidak mengenal istilah “merek”, sehingga bakpia yang dijual hingga saat ini berlabel “nomor rumah produsen”. Kemudian barulah muncul beberapa merek-merek pathok seperti Djava dan lain-lain.

10 New Planets in Bima Sakti Galaxy


Liputan6.com, Wellington: Ten new planets “floating” through the galaxies found in an international team of astronomers led by New Zealand scientists. Tenth Jupiter-sized planet that is a new discovery in the history of the Bima Sakti Galaxy. The invention uses software developed by computer scientists Massey University, Wellington, Australia. “They are giant planets in our galaxy, about the size of Jupiter. It turned out that this submarine is the tenth planet somewhere in between us and the stars,” said Ian Bond, an Astro Physics, recently. The planets were believed to be located about two-thirds of the center of the galaxy, located about 25,000 light-years. If they are visible to the naked eye, the planets would be pitch black, because they do not emit light. This new planet could be removed from the solar system since the meeting of gravity close to other planets or stars. Most likely the new planets grow from collapsing ball of gas and dust, but do not have the mass to ignite the fuel and produce starlight alone. These findings led the researchers hope that the free floating planetary sized Earth could support life. Although until now the possibility was small, such planet yet detected.
