night market in Malay. The Pasar Malam in Singapore however is quite different from those in Hong Kong and Taiwan. I would say it's not as robust, probably due to the reason that it's a lot smaller and also it is a makeshift market. They will relocate to a new venue in about a month's time. A variety of items will be sold. Very commonly are cooked food, fruits, home accessories, cooking wares, handphone gadgets, vases, toys and clothings and accessories.
I had always like to frequent Pasar Malam for food. I used to love the food such as candy floss, popcorn, steamed corn and boiled peanuts when I was a kid. When I was a teenager, the must buy list is Taiwan sausage, Chinese Tea Leaf Egg, Fried Chicken Wings (assorted flavours), Ramli burger and boiled peanuts still. Now, I am even older, these food no longer attracts me as I find them too oily and unhealthy. I'll go for Kueh Tutu if I find one. Occasionally, Ramli burger. Recently, the Pasar Malam I saw even sold kebab and fried quail! I went for the kebab wrap as I have never eaten one. It's quite nice with mayonnaise. I didn't have the chance to try the fried quail because we were quite full after eating 3 wraps.
Still, I like to frequent Pasar Malam as there are some cheap and interesting finds there. My shopping spree this time.
