mekici party for hisahito

In Macedonia, when someone delivered a baby, the mekici party is thrown by her family. Well, it is said "party", but it is more like just a gathering occasion to eat "mekici" (and drink yogurt, of course) and to wish the baby's healthy and happy life. Mekici is like a flat fried dough. Tastes like fried dough; in Japanese, more like "agepan" without sugar. Today, there was a mekici party at the japonska consulate office in Skopje for the baby born in the emperor's family lately. The cut-out from the newspaper on the box says "Skopje mekici for the Japanese prince." Fala.
