Hi all!! Thanks again for joining me here. Hope you enjoy my detour on the Malaysia – Penang’s Rifle Range Morning Market for Breakfast posting.
Let’s get back to my Taiwan Trip.
Checked in and all ready for my evening walk in Tainan city. If you have missed my early half, do drop in and have a look;
Ok. Let’s get ‘walking’. =)
On the main road a block away from my hostel, I saw this art creation in front of a restaurant. Can anyone guess what is it made of?
Walking on the street in Tainan at night, you get to see a lot of things (I opt not to take the taxi or the bus)
Where was I heading to? Well you guessed it. Taiwan night market. This is one the famous ones which is called the Tainan Flower night market. (P.S If you are planning to walk from Tainan train station to this night market, yes you can but be prepare to walk for about an hour to get there!!)
Just look at the crowd at the night market even before I arrived. There were just rows and rows of scooters parked.
People were practically walking back to back.
Stalls at both sides…..
Kids (and not to mention adults too!) love to come to night market as there are games and soft toys to win.
Are you still drooling from my previous post on the Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Kai-Xuan night market? Well.. do not let it stop. LOL!! More pictures of food coming but for now.. let’s take a ‘walk’ before hitting the food again. Give your stomach a break and enjoy some night shopping.
Cute soft toys…
cute phone casing for your smartphones. I believe you can find all sorts of casing for any phones.
Ok.. back to eating. HAHA!!! This stall sells big fried dumpling stuff with lots of stuff in it.
and there goes a bite into it. Damn tasty is all I can say. =) (oh yes.. it has oyster in it!! Can you see it?)
This stall sells the food which is very common in Taiwan…
Pork sausages… and other parts. Tasty? Of course. Could smell from a distance. haha.
This stall was selling all sorts of colourful jelly. Nice dessert but I did not buy any. Still keeping space in my stomach for other interesting food that catches my eyes.
Want more? Still hungry? Then follow and stay with me, and let’s keep on looking for more food!!!!
Hi.. !! you are still with me. Good! Let’s ‘walk’…..
Still walking in the Jiufen Old Street, there were a lot of things to see and try.
Lots of stalls selling cute little handmade stuff.
As it got close to noon, there were more people coming, mostly tourists and also locals looking and enjoying the weekends.
Along the street, I saw a break where to road lead either up or down. Guess I will have to make another round after coming to the end of this street and see what they have on the top and bottom of these stairs.
At the end of the Jiufen Old Street, another beautiful shot from the top overlooking the northeast of Taiwan; Keelung.
Houses built on the hill side.
Cute Doraemon water tumbler when you purchase the guava juice from this stall.
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.
Bee Hoon soup…..
More Malay food….
Malay style Yong tau foo and also they offer squid and Kangkung mixed w prawn paste.
Aside from inside the Spice Bazaar, we also took the chance to walk outside the bazaar along the back alley behind and beside the bazaar … and boy!! there were even more things to see and pictures to shoot.
See for yourself what I have captured…….
Haha..not sure this man approves of me taking the photo or he was posing for it.
more spices outside the bazaar
one of the back alley….
and there were a lot of people walking there especially the locals. Guess the tourist were all caught up inside the bazaar.
Locals eating outside a small stall and I believe they were having the famous apple tea.
Lots of weird and curious things that you can find here.
My trip back yesterday was a smooth one. I was expecting a long and slow drive back as everyone was taking leave and also rushing back to their hometown.
Got up 5am plus to start our journey as last year we left a bit later and the traffic was heavy and was a pace of average 70km per hour and it took us about 6 hrs where a good smooth trip will usually take about 5 hrs.
Our first stop for breakfast was on of the RnR (rest and recreation) area along the highway.
Food to buy and if you noticed, early in the morning people were already eating rice with dishes to select from.
I was kinda lucky as the traffic was smooth.
Reaching Ipoh for our next RnR stop
This is a new building built next to the highway where the highway user can stop and buy fresh groceries.
Agromall; it is still new and not many stalls slot utilized.
It also has toilet rest area and also a prayer place for the Muslim and a small playground for the children
