    Try not to step on "Canangs" (Offerings to Gods)

    by myspices Written Feb 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Balinese are very religious and pious. "Canangs" (offerings to Gods) in the form of trays made of palm leaves, filled with fresh flowers and tidbits or boiled rice are not only placed in the pura (temples) but are placed at entrances of homes or shops, accompanied with burning joss sticks. Those that are placed at entrances are usually in the mornings and evenings. Avoid stepping on them when the joss sticks are still lighted, meaning that the prayers are still in progress. If you accidently stepped on those where the prayers are completed, it is ok, otherwise...... just ask for "forgiveness" silently.

    Carrying on top of the Head is easier...

    by myspices Written Feb 22, 2006

    Most women will carry their wares and goods on top of their heads. You will be amazed at how strong their heads and necks are as the basketful is indeed heavy and bulky. They will place a coiled-up towel or cloth on heads to support the heavy load.
