Labour Day, 1st of May… Wesak Day felt on the same day this year and that means a replacement holiday on 2nd of May. Great news for government servants, banks and some private companies but not for me as I’m working on both days.
1st of May was Tuesday and Ipoh Garden East will have pasar malam (night market) on Tuesday nights. A bunch of friends dragged me out to chill out since it’s holiday on the next day and it’s been some time since I went to pasar malam, so why not?
Far left: Cucur udang (prawn crackers, the thick version), fried fishballs etc.
The crowds. A stall selling Taiwanese pearl milk tea on the right.
Aiskrim potong! Sixty cents per piece. Must have this whenever I spotted them.
They picked a stall and sit down for a bowl of laksa. Laksa stalls are scattered all over the night market and a popular food here. This one tastes spicier and the broth is not so thick.
Side order of fried wan tan. RM2 for ten pieces. Nice finger food but for me, I like to dunk them into the laksa broth. 😛
Fresh fruit juice, anyone?
Another favourite snack of mine. Apom balik which is the thin and crispy version. Choose from groundnuts, kaya, sweet corn and margarine.
Salted baked chicken! I wonder if it tastes as good as Aun Kheng Lim…
Finished our walk, we decided to go for couple of drinks. But why choose Old Town Kopitiam lehh….
They arranged this for me to snap the photo. Hahaha…

My mouth feeling ‘itchy’, so I ordered the Strawberry Toast. One piece of toast, topped with strawberry puree. The toast is a bit hard but the puree have chunks of strawberries and not overly sweet. Tastes just fine for me. Maybe next time I should try the Blueberry Toast.
