Independence Day Weekend

We have had a great weekend, mostly at home. It has been rainy so staying at home has been very cool. Not like the recent dry, hazy and oppressively hot days we had recently.

Last night, we went out for dinner with some friends at Horizon Hotel. The kitchen at this hotel is my favorite in Palembang and so far, it hasn't failed me. So, needless to say, we had an enjoyable dinner last night. We also saw this funny sign at the entrance to the hotel....

I had this image of the bride and groom in their formal Indonesian wedding costumes but with a joint hanging out of their mouths.

Today, our neighborhood had the annual Independence Day activities. Just like last year, Aaron participated in the Kerupuk eating competition (they have to eat it without using their hands). Some one took pity on him this year and gave him a bit of help - boosting him to 2nd place!!

It was a simple weekend but lots of fun.

Did you crash the weeding party?

And for those that also want to know - kerupuk is shrimp crackers.
