                  Growing up in Indonesia, I used to eat spicy food since I was a child as we have varies spices such as chili, cayenne, pepper, nutmeg, clove, galangal, shallot, etc. Unfortunately, thats also the main reason why Netherland occupied us long time ago😕.
                  Anyway, maybe thats why my spiciness tolerance level is above the average, especially when ordering food with frens from other country, they usually think its too hot n spicy while I am enjoying the food n being okay with it :)

First of all, my tongue is like on fire, but gradually I can eat a total hot chili. That is not a big deal for me at this time, I just think that my stamina became bigger and I can suffer the higher level of spicy. The tongue seems to have some layers so it's like much thicker to prevent the burning feeling on the tongue. I realize that I just getting used to eating them for a while until I watched this video. The dish maybe tends to be more attractive, doesn't it? Overcoming this feeling is like you complete a challenge, it's extremely addicted.
