So many delectable choices from one little stall

There are at least eight different variations to the iced soya-based snack. You take your pick.

If you don’t like a light snack like this, then you are not from this planet. Taiwan has loads of this kind of very delicious stuff.

This bowl was mine. Even as I pen these lines, I am salivating. Must check the airport as to the next flight to Taipei.

Jinjang pasar malam stalls

This man is selling fried radish cakes or koay kak. It is loved by some sections of the Chinese community. Eat too much and it will give you a sore throat.
Too heaty, as our mothers would say.

In every pasar malam, there must be a few stalls that have all the little, cute wearables, especially for the younger set.
And if you ask these girls why they think this stall is popular, you will get a dozen reasons.


NIght time always seems to be a good time for a chow-down and a tuck-in session. Near the Jinjang Utara pasar malam site, there is a restaurant that enjoys a boost in customers on Saturdays.
That’s when the night market takes place.

Nature unveils one of its finest creations.

One of the more scenic spots in the man-made reservoir in Selangor. The trees and bushes act like a picture frame for the scenic landscape.

Local residents tend to flock to this dam during weekends.


Empangan Batu or Batu Dam which is located near Batu Caves on a road leading through the hills to Ulu Yam Lama is one of the most beautiful dams in the Klang Valley.

For city dwellers whose tired eyes need a balm, this dam is one of the elixirs that will soothe a tired body and blood-shot eyes.
