Jogyakarta is the batik capital of Indonesia and there is enough of it here to probably clothe everyone in the world. Batik, for those who are unfamiliar is a traditional Indonesian textile that is made either by stamp press or hand painted with hot wax. The hot wax is used to draw a design on material then dyed, it's sort of like tye-dye.
|Rows and rows of batik clothes|
|Traditional Indonesian kebayas. These ones a little fancier than the average however, especially the tacky green one on the right.|
|Hair buns, fake detachable ones that is.|
|What market is complete without food? Here is some noodles with fried birds..yes I said bird, not chicken.|
|Pecel: steamed veggies with spicy peanut sauce|
|Kolak: a dessert made with a mix of coconut cream (top left), tapioca (bottom left), palm sugar syrup (bottom right), and candied sweet potato/pumpkin. Yummy.|
