Of course we can find jam and marmelade inside hotels, but do Sasak people eat jam?

I would like to bring french jam in "my village", but I don't remember if jam is usual in markets or shops in Lombok...

It is not easy to bring european food as gift for Lombok people, in France we have many food made with pig... chocolate and fruits are not possible due to hot weather... and there is no electricity in my place, so my friends don't have fridge...

If you have some original gifts ideas I am interested !

thank you !

PostSubject: Oleh oleh for Lombok   Sat Sep 26, 2009 4:22 am

Hi Lolo,

Once I asked my Lombok guests what dessert can I order after our dinner, the reply was "mmmmmm dessert is a western custom....we really don't have desserts after a meal...."

When I thought about "oleh oleh" for my Lombok friends, I used to take fruits, especially apples, for my hosts. On other occasions, I took pastries from one of the bakeries in Sengiggi. Pastries in sufficient quantities were not always available though. I also know donuts are popular among the young.

Hi Lolo

I dont know how much of it gets eaten in the villages but Jam is available in most shops aand quite cheap. I would have thought bringing Jam from home would have been quite heavy with the glass jars. I dont think I ever brought any food stuffs from UK as presents though I did bring a few things for myself. Very Happy
