Breaking fast @ The Shah Alam Ramadhan Market

A couple of things been happening.

Just got back from Krabi.

Found out my Grandpa had left us on the same day.

Well life will go on i suppose and may he find peace whereever he is now.

The month of fasting is about to end and before it ends, i thought i do my part and give you all some pictures.

I never thought i will cover a market of this magnitude and occasion. The idea of squeezing in with everyone (very hungry ones too) who are out there buying a meal to break fast while you casually walk and see what you would like to eat and snapping pictures didn't sound workable.

Well apparently its not too bad if you end up at one of the largest ramadhan market outside the Shah Alam Stadium.

Freshly made onde-onde. There had a piece of gula melaka in the core opposed to liquid gula melaka.

Satay on the grill.


Ikan bakar; different varieties and sizes.

A ghastly coloured honey dew drinks that looked like chewing gum.

Ayam rempah.

The KING of murtabak apparently.

Ayam percik.

CKT too!


Roti John, this was scrumptious.


All unpacked and ready to eat!

Well the market had probably more than a hundred stalls and there were plenty of misses (says much about our choices really). The downside of buying the food home is that it goes cold inevitably and things like murtabak, roti john, fried chicken and etc just has to be served hot.

However a good experience in soaking up the local culture and being part of the (over used phrase of the year) "1 Malaysia".

my deepest sympathies for your loss, joe. btw, i know that neither of us is muslim, but was just reminded that some muslims believe that people who pass away during ramadan will attain a higher place in paradise.
