..meanwhile, on the way back from work..

..a stop at Bazaar Ramadan, Beris Kubur Besar, Bachok..

..for ordinary folks and old coots like me, they are a Godsend....to Chuan, the goldsmith and his family, too...they loved Ramadan, not because they fast, but because they had a gala time choosing and buying all those lauk pauk and kuih muih..

..it is feasting time, but in a limited way..we can change our menu every day and we do no have to spend RM100 per head..generally for a family of 5, it is RM15 to RM20 per day..cheap and delicious... 




..but you must be able to resist the smells, the aroma, the fumes..and the tantalising smiles that came along with .."colik, be, se ria jah...ko nok sup perut..?.."

..even old geezers are called 'abang' during Ramadan...

Abe Mat,
Yoohoo! We call you 'abang' all the time. Not just in Ramadan. Does Ayam fast? roar! roar! roar!

Bazaar Ramadan is a good thing. No, it's the best thing.

Salam Pak Mat,
Yes ..the price of food in KB is a lot cheaper than any other places..I miss that and the cholek too after terawikh...

Ahhh Abang Mat, this is the best time, 100% agree.In my younger days - I don't care ppl call me greedy/glutton or what, i would love to have a feeding frenzy, worry later.My rationale is simple, they take the trouble to start their businesses, it's only fair we patronize & support them, macam doing community service kan; win-win situation for all. They get extra cash to spend for Raya, we get to eat our heart content on various food fares :))

Cheers,
Tommy

P/S - The hawkers always gave me extra coz of my good nature & puppy dog good looks...hahaha..thick elephant skin :)

Hehehe i can just imagine the manja voices of all the cek mek's calling out to u at the bazaar ;p

Me, i'm wary of the hawkers that seem to mushroom all over the place in ramadhan. bukan apa, kekadang nampak je molek tp tak sedap pun, and i've had more than my fair share of tummy aches, so i only frequent the ones i'm used to.

Hari ni pakmat berbuka apa?

pakmat said...

..makè ati berule jatun, Mekyam..:) take care in NY..

..seriau, curly-haired?..how about this repartee..
..colik, be, colik..colik lidoh ado..
..lidoh?..lepah poso lah..
..bereh..
..followed by a to die for smile..

..beyond imaginations, justi..but I got used to it..they r just testing an old man's patience..:)
