Going To Pasar Ramadan

We brought Angel to the Pasar Ramadan near our place. In order to avoid the crowd, we went there very early, around 4PM and not much patrons can be seen at that time but most of the stall have set up their food with a few stalls which was not ready yet. The market were filled with all kinds of Malay savories such as Satay, Barbecue Wings (I love this), Redang, Nasi Lemak, Kuih Makmur, Abc (love love love this one) …… and a lot more of the Malay food delicacies which I absolutely love but can’t simply remembered the correct name of the dish and kueh :P


We really love Malay food especially Angel's grandma as we used to go to our relatives Hari Raya Open House here every year. But too bad that they have all moved to another place already. Missed the time spend with them and the their lovely open house food a lot!!


Angel was not interested with the food at all, instead, she found those huge umbrella very interesting and would hang on to each and every one of it while we are busy shopping for food. She hold onto them as in the picture below, sometimes would shake them furiously if she saw us not watching her calling out “ UM-BEAR-NA~~~”! Sometimes if she saw kids playing and running around, she would follow them around too so really have to keep an eyes on her all the time before she is missing in action again. Luckily it was not crowded at such early time hence Angel’s grandma still able to buy a lot of food while I keep an eye on this active little girl wondering around happily ^_^


After a quick round, we only found out that we have bought too many of the food that enough even for the next day! We didn’t headed home right away but instead, we went and have a in-car picnic at the beach while Angel’s grandma can’t wait to munched on her stick of Beef Satay while me sipping on my BBQ Wings once jumping inside the car LOL. Angel gets to share some of the Sugar Cane drink too but since her tummy is not feeling well, we didn’t let her try any of the food that we bought. It’s such a nice day to be able to get out of the house once in awhile despite the H1N1 when the crowd has not started.


Unfortunately, 1 of the burger that we bought from the market was not hygienic enough that has caused Angel's grandpa having terrible food poisoning for days after taken it :( :( Poor grandpa :( :(

Anyway, Happy Bulan Ramadan! ^_^

Health Freak Mommy said...

The food sold at Ramadhan bazaars always look so tempting but they are not really clean and fresh. Last Saturday we bought some food from the bazaar and most of them were not tasty, burnt and the fried chicken was not fresh and tasted foul!
Your Angel is really chubby. Must be all of mummy's yummy cooking that plumped her up eh?

Just realised I haven't gone to any Ramadan stalls this year. This weekend is the last chance!

So cute the way she says "um bear na" !!

UmmiRosma said...

Pasar ramadhan in Bangkok or you went to Malaysia recently dear?

It's true..we have to carefully choose the right and hygenic foods sold. So better buy those food that are still hot/warm and the most important thing is that they are COVERED well.

MommyAngel said...

Dear All, thanks for al the comments. Grandpa is in pink of health now :) thanks :) I guess next time really have to be very careful when choosing to dine in an open market but sometimes really can’t resist the temptation :P

Ummi and KC,
the pasar Ramadan is the one back in my hometown Sabah :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Caroline, you have came back here at Sabah? So nice to have jalan2 at the ramadan bazaar.

I love to so do but I have the food poisoning once after I ate the food, so I am a bit hesitated to go there.

Angel was carrying something on her hand? Her favourite food ya?

Ann said...

oh...poor grandma!!! But it must have tasted good while she ate it!!!

Would have gone too if not for my aversion to heavy smelling stuff now! :)
