Tempe (soybean cake) from Indonesia. Believed to have existed since 2,000 years ago, tempe once was a fermented food from soybean originally made in China and brought to the island of Java in the form of what we know as today’s soy sauce (kecap). Ancient Javanese then modified the process of making it, later used almost similar name to tumpi (white colored traditional food from sago) to name this soon-becoming-popular dish from Indonesia.

Javanese and Balinese are modern variants of the old Kawi script, a Brahmic script introduced to Java along with Hinduism and Buddhism. Kawi is first attested in a legal document from 804 CE. It was widely used in literature and translations from Sanskrit from the tenth century; by the seventeenth, the script is identified as carakan. A Latin orthography based on Dutch was introduced in 1926, and has largely supplanted the carakan.
