These decorations are used to signalise a celebration and carry offerings – rice, fruits etc

I had to share this burst of color with you. And yes, no we haven’t left the path of the great traveller, Ibn Battuta: he was in Indonesia as well

Are you the color type?

Have you been to South East Asia? Do you like it? What for?
