Indonesia’s float entry for the 124th Pasadena Rose Parade this year has won the President’s Trophy for The Most Effective and Innovative Use of Flowers. Congratulations, Indonesia!
Watching the Rose Parade, either on TV or in the streets of Pasadena itself, has become an annual New Year’s Day ritual for most Americans – the perfect thing to do as they quietly recover from New Year’s Eve parties.Carving tagged Coconut, Indonesian carved spoons, Kalimantan, Palembang, Rice spoon, Wayang Puppets by desley
Do you take a spoon for granted? It’s shape, design and the materials it’s made from? Not here in Indonesia.
In the West, we eat using a knife and a fork; but, when you dine the Indonesian way, don’t be surprised to be presented with a fork and a spoon with which to eat your food. Since rice is the usual accompaniment to a meal here, it makes sense that you can scoop rather than cut.
