Ramadan Bazaar 2012 @ Bandar Tun Hussein Onn, Selangor

The holy month of Ramadan is upon us again and during this time, Ramadan Bazaars are set up in various locations offering buka puasa (breaking of fast) fare. Since moving to KL, we have without fail visited the Ramadan Bazaar at Bandar Tun Hussein Onn in Selangor (next to Carrefour).

The Ramadan Bazaars officially started their business today, and we were more impressed than ever at the quality and vast variety of food on offer there. It is indeed lovely walking around, soaking up the smells and sight of local, traditional Malaysian food.

Deep fried quail... finger licking good!


There are more stalls set up this year, and the crowd on the first day was crazy! Since we were slightly early, we managed to snap photos easily but come 6pm, it was hard to move around the place. The vendors this year are super friendly, all posing for photos for me. My favorite stalls were those with on-site cooking such as ayam percik, ayam golek (those chicken on rotisseries), satay, kuay teow goreng, ikan bakar, murtabak, roti john and chicken wings!

We were also happy to see lemang on sale (just one stall) here this year, finally! I see that most stalls still don't put up a sign with prices, but good job to those who do. Just a rough guide, ayam percik/golek usually costs RM18 each, satay RM0.60 per stick, chicken wings RM1.80 each and kuih-muih is 40sen each.

Anyway, here are the photos I snapped at the Ramadan Bazaar, do visit it if you get a chance - it's a great way of sampling lots of different Malaysian food under one carpark. ;)

  10. I always wonder ... these stall owners, don't they feel like they're torturing themselves? I mean, already puasa 12+ hours no food no drink still need to cook and some more be around heavenly food aroma's but cannot eat until sundown ...

  11. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
