Minions Rush or craze … that’s what I call it. Malaysian folks; young ones and the yuppies were going for the minions craze after the show ‘Despicable Me’.
McDonald in Malaysia and Singapore were giving out free Minions (while stocks last .. which only lasted like 2 hours or less) for each purchase of Happy Meal. They had a set 9 characters which was released over a period of few weeks and each time it was release it was sold out without hours.
So.. I took the jump in (what was i thinking off!!) and volunteered to queue up for my friend and see how crazy the Malaysian folks were on this Minions.
This was the numbered I got and this was even an hour before McDonald was opened. 300++!! (They just handed the number randomly to the people in the queue.. in actual I was like to 50th+ ppl in the line. =P )
The queue was getting longer as it gets closer to the opening time.
A month before the this celebration, our Muslim friends will fast for a month and during this month, the food traders will take this opportunity to sell their food before the breaking of fast. Today, I will share with you of my visit to one of the Ramadan Bazaar.
The Ramadan Bazaar offer an array of delicious fare of Malay food. These bazaars are closed throughout the day, but come to life in the late afternoon as bazaar food shops prepare food for Muslims breaking their fast at sundown.
The shoppers in the bazaars aren’t all Muslim, though; Malaysian Chinese, Indians and foreign tourists also benefit from the bazaars’ great eats and bargains.
Roasted chicken on the grill. That a pick. 😊
Many choices of drink… all packed for those breaking fast.
Lots of people walking around and looking for the many options and varieties to choose from.
