It's been a long time since I've done one of these Grocery Games posts, but somewhere along the way, maybe when we moved into our permanent apartment, I decided I felt a little bit weird about taking photos at the grocery store. At my grocery store, I should say. I guess it seemed like it would ruin my street cred as a resident to bust out my camera while doing the daily shopping. But let's be honest: I have no street cred. It's hard to fit in and dodge the whole bule thing when people call out "Hey, bule!" or "Hey, Mister!" as I walk by. Why bother trying... might as well have my camera at the ready to capture the good stuff!
Anywho... some amusing/interesting photos from my perjalanan (journey) to the toko makanan (grocery store) today:
Cocks in cages: it's not clear to me for what purpose these roosters are being sold (breeding? eating? fighting?), but I have noticed that sometimes they're in these bamboo cages and sometimes they're free to roam the jalan tikus (side road; literally translated as "rat road") between my house and the closest grocery store.
Lady Drivers Only: In grocery store parking lot there is a sign that says "Khusus Pengemudi Wanita/ Lady Drivers Only" (the Indonesian directly translates to "special lady drivers," I think). Special parking spot? Is this the equivalent of those mother-to-be parking spots that started popping up in U.S. strip mall parking lots recently?
Nothing deceptive about these spuds: Honesty potatoes... because all other potatoes are just flattering you.
