It's almost the end of the Ramadan month which means that Muslims all over the world have been fasting from sunrise to sunset. In Malaysia, Ramadan bazaars have been mushrooming all over the towns and cities. Essentially, they're like our pasar malam (night markets), except that mostly food and beverages are sold. Muslims (and non-Muslims) get to pick from a smorgasbord of snacks on their way home from work for breaking their fast just before dusk.
Sharing these photos I've captured when I was at the bazaar to pick up some apam balik.
Otak-otak - a fish cake wrapped in banana leaves and grilled over a charcoal fire
Apam balik - Turnover pancake
Cucur Udang (Prawn fritters)
Barbequed chicken wings
Sugar Cane Juice. The contraption you see in the pic is used to extract the juice from the sugar canes
Roti Jala - a lacy and net-like bread/crepe/pancake
Satay - skewered meat grilled over a charcoal fire
A variety of desserts
Drinks. 'Air' pronounced as ai-yer is a Malay word for water
Cookies I made for Father's Day
