Two weeks ago, I saw this interesting bread (that smelled so good) displayed in one grocery store. I discovered later that they are not to be eaten. It's for the big celebration that was coming.
Last Sunday, Thailand celebrated an important festivity called Loi Kratung. Loi Kratung is a Buddhist festival float a small raft called "kratung" decorated with flowers, incense and candles on the river.
Last year I saw kratungs made of plastic and banana trunk. But this time I saw ones made of bread. I think this is a better idea because it not only save the river from clogging but it also makes fish enjoy the festivity.
It's interesting to see how parents encourage their children to follow this religious practice. I just had a talk with one parent who now became a christian. He said that this year he forbid his daughter to go with her friends to the river to celebrate Loi Kratung. "My daughter thought it was just for fun but she has to understand that it's a form of worshiping the river."
This was taken from the balcony in my bedroom. My camera didn't do justice to that spectacular sighting that night.
