One Fine Day

Off we go, Miss B & I, to the Sanur Village Festival 2009. Mertasari Beach was hot and no self-respected local ladies went there. They paid too much for skincare products already. However, this two local ladies adore the sun, word 'festival' and things called 'food'. It was hot but windy enough to pass for 'breezy'.

There were kites. A surreal flying teddy bear and octopuses.

We arrived at the food depot. Pork ribs and curries wafting in the air. The area was dead quiet. Few people who were there, ready for the sun grill, were either in the committee or rehearsing. We picked a nice seat right beside a giant mist fan and started our culinary adventure. First, came the beef lasagna flushed down by melting gelato. After a initial pause, we continued to samosas ended with buttery coffee bread. Public toilet mysteriously hidden somewhere.

People started to come around 4, when the sun begun to weaken and moved to shine on another continent. There was emergency boutiques where local garments manufacturer sold their leftover products. I got my hand henna-ed for the first time. Miss B bought few pieces of tres chic kid clothes made for France. We went home happy. The end.
