Indigenous Breakfast

image

Ready to eat indigenous breakfast fare in various colors are plentiful inside Siti Khadijah Market. It’s wonderful to see places like this where there is obviously good demand by locals for local fare.

Folks having superiority complex over their local food and their culture in totality have not lost their identity in this era of globalization.

Pasar Snapshots: Kuih-Muih

image

If Philippines has all sorts of kakanin, then Malaysia has all sorts of kuih-muih. Whereas the kakanin is something that you have to deliberately find because native food has taken a back seat over Western bites, kuih-muih contrastingly can be found in cafes, airports, streets, markets, everywhere – even in Kuala Lumpur. How nice it is to have something uniquely Southeast Asian that remains to be part of everyday breakfast, snack, tea or coffee accompaniment, or dessert.

Most Picturesque Tropical Market

image

The produce section of local traditional markets have something in common – full of colors. But there is one market in Southeast Asia that stood out when viewed in its entirety. Literally, in a bigger picture, the top view sight of Siti Khadijah Market is truly beautiful.

image

The multitude of colors coming from the produce, bottle covers, traditional garbs of the sellers and customers, and the walls of the building make the entire scene picturesque. It’s full of life and its crudeness is its charm. Hoping the look will stay the same for long time.
