An afternoon at the Ramadan Bazaar






























This afternoon I spent almost 4 hours at 3 Ramadan stalls at the Town Square. The previous years I only walked through the stalls and snapped away randomly. This year I decide to stay put with a few stalls and wait for the right moments to shoot more interersting and dramatic photos.A total of 310 photos were taken and here are some to share with you all.I do not know the people at the stalls but all of them are very friendly and cooperative.They even offered me chair to sit and satay to eat.Thank you very much my Muslim brothers and sisters.

Pause in awe and wonder of the food.
Delight in the company of fellow brethren.
Squat and rest in such beauty!

No pun meant for squatting and rest :)

cc:I think few Malaysians at home would miss the chance to savour the food at the Muslim stalls during Ramandan. I suggest you participate in the Nikon Contest.

yan:It's a delightful experience visiting the food stalls. I came home last evening with the body amd the cloth smelling of the grilled chicken and satay! And of course touched by the hospitality and friendship offered by the brethren.

eiling: That black creature is the horseshoe crab which is also known as king crab.It has existed for 360 million years, hence also called the living fossil.Look like sting ray at first glance.

Eiling: Neither do I. I don't even eat the ordinary crabs because I am allergic to them.
