Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar 2009 - RT/WW


BBQ quails

Every year I eagerly await the Hari Raya Bazaar at Geylang Serai. What draws me to the annual bazaar is the food - all sorts of food and kuih (traditional Malay delicacies) are sold for buka puasa (breaking fast). Some of the Malay dishes or snacks are not available throughout the year, so I would stuff myself silly on my favourite Malay food. :P

food stall holders doing a brisk business

There are usually long queues at the food stalls. Be prepared to wait ... amidst the pushing crowds and in the stilfing heat.

Yummy food for the hungry....

children at a game stall

I tried my hand at the game stalls but ended up empty-handed. The kids did better.

artificial flowers and flower arrangements

I enjoy walking through the bazaar, looking for some unique items to decorate my home. I always manage to find lovely lacy curtains or a pretty table cloth. And I usually end up buying a basket of beautifully arranged artificial flowers for my entertainment room.... all at a great price. Bargain lah! :P

  5. Lina,
    These are must-buy for me - Ramlee burgers, ayam percik, putu piring, pineapple tarts, traditional Malay biscuits and kuihs. :P

    No game stalls in Malaysia bazaar? I guess the Hari Raya bazaar in Malaysia would be bigger and have a wider variety of goods.

  6. Wow! So many foods to eat huh? Haha :D Perhaps the game doesn't suit you. I'm sure you can do better in other games. ;)

  9. Hi ECL,

    My Dear and I visited the place last Saturday.

    Tonight is the 7th day of 7th month, I almost forgot but was reminded and I spent my time fruitfully with my Dear. One year ago, you exclaimed how come I forgot, wow so fast, one year liao!

  10. So interesting to see glimpses of other cultures. I've never heard the names of the foods you describe. Ironic how fasting ends with a food frenzy :)

  11. Hari Raya Bazaar at Geylang not only offers varities of malay food, but also new clothes for the Muslims for the coming celebrations of Ramadan. It is must to pay a visit since it is an annual affair.

  15. This is also an event that I very much look forward to when I was back home. Malay food and delicacies are really to die for. I especially like their Malay style fried noodles.

  17. The variety of food available at the ramadhan bazaar is hard to beat. Even those who aren't fasting are also making a beeline to these food bazaars.

  19. I've only visited the place one, and that's only because I need a new curtain. I don't usually buy outside food for our break-fast, I cook daily since I got a very fussy son who insist on home cooked meals!

  21. I would go for the lekors and ayam percik at these bazaars. Its been raining everyday over here and business would not be good.
