Pasar Ramadan (Ramadan market or bazaar)

Ramadan (the Muslim fasting month) is fast coming to a close. So, we decided to check out the Ampang new town pasar Ramadan in Selangor and the one at the nearby Bukit Indah to get something for our dinner.

The pasar Ramadan at Bukit Indah is a less raucous affair, but still colourful as the following pictures show.

As Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month, draws to an end and the HariRaya Aidilfitri celebrations dawn either this August 30th or 31st, depending on the sighting of the moon on the 29th, I wish all my Muslims friends and all Malaysians and others of Muslim faith SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI.

Ma'af Zahir dan Batin.

  1. Looking at this post, reminds me of how soon it will be Ramadan again! Just getting over the indulgence of CNY, planning summer trips and then the fasting/ feasting month will be upon us again. :-)

    1. It seems that in Malaysia, there is a constant round of celebrations coming thick and fast on the heels of each other.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
