Souvenir from Lombok

We didn't buy much souvenirs from Lombok except for these which I willingly cart back by hand. They are known as brem or rice wine made by the local sasak people. In the first week of brewing, they taste sweet, like drinking mild alcoholic soft drink. After that, they get progressively sour and more alcoholic but just as lip smackingly good.

@koe: You should if you ever have the chance. Its good.

@cath: Yep the bottles are fantastic photography subjects. It was an added bonus because we were expecting it to be in plastic bottles at first.

@bcb: Help yourself hehehe. I love the bottles too :D

@dex: Yep the colours are fabulous eh :D

@integrity_of_light: Thanks. The subject made photographing them pretty easy :D

Hehehehe yesss. You will have to go cart your own bottle from Lombok I'm afraid.

Yep I totally agree. The sweet version is pretty spectacular too. We didn't get stopped on the sg side while the Indo side took one look and nod with approval hahahaha.
