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.

Many Malaysians are ignorant of the beauty of batik. A lot of people think of clothes when batik is mentioned. Actually, batik’s beauty has been seen in paintings and in other forms of artwork.

Here we have batik used as pictures to decorate the interior of a house or a hall. The beauty of batik is accentuated when it is hung against a background where sunlight is allowed full play.

Sometimes, you need a helping hand from nature to see the beauty of a batik print.

Asian beauties

Some of the most beautiful women are in Asia. Of course, there are beautiful women all over the world but truth be told, the best reside in some of the most unheralded nations in the Asian region.

Feast your eyes on these three beauties. They are but just a mere sample of what has been bragged about by foreigners for ages untold.

Masjid Jamek mosque

Within the mosque perimeters

Masjid Jamek is located in the confluence of two rivers in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

On its muddy banks began the commercial centre of what KL is today. It holds many stories within its grounds.

The British and the Moghul influences are inherent in its design and layout. That’s what made this house of worship so special and the heritage of Malaysia so rich.
