Festivals (Or: Tong Tong Fair 2013)
A few weeks ago I went to the Tong Tong Fair in The Hague. It’s an Indonesian fair which takes place in the Malieveld area of The Hague (the same place as another festival we went to in May).
It was pretty good – I ended up buying a few things, including a stone box to use for my jewelry, along with some food items like dried fruit, kropoek, and a few Sambal chili-based sauces – triple hot, but we’ll see if it lives up to that name!

clever rice display (“rijst” in Dutch)
receipe for Soto ayam (printed Dutch is hard enough to read… this is pushing it!)
Soto ayam is a spicy chicken soup.
