Eating amongst flowers, Beringharjo Market
If you noticed carefully, a true Javanese will never fuss about the absence of cutlery at meal times. They will wash their hands with the water provided at the local eateries and eat with their right hand ( the left hand is considered 'unclean' ) to eat. Even if there is no washing water, eating still isn't a problem. I saw a flower vendor using a disposable plastic glove to eat her lunch.
Where:Pasar Beringharjo, Yogya, Central Java
