Hari Raya Bazaar

It's going to be the end of the Ramada in a week time. A month long of fasting for the
Muslims will be over to celebrate Hari Raya Puasa next Sunday. Sims Avenve and the
road along Geylang Serai are decorated with lights. Every year a bazaar will be here
in preparation for this festival. Stalls selling household wares, clothes and food for
 those who wants a snack or refreshment. This bazaar is huge. Here are some highlights
 of the bazaar that shine. It is one-stop shopping haven from dressing up the home to
dressing up for this special occasion.

 Food Galore : Famous Ramly Burgers are sold at this bazaar along with other foods.
Otah : Spicy Fish Paste wrap in banana leaves grilled over a charcoal fire.

Indian Snacks :  Deep Fried ( Savoury Donuts )

Cookies For Sale

Coconut leaves sold to make 'ketupat'. Weave into casing to make rice cakes.

I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I suss out the right stalls for a snapshot.
Like to thank stall holders for so graciously acceding to my request. I would have given this bazaar a miss if not for this blog. As the years roll by, it has gotten bigger and better. Still got a week left to make a trip down here. 

* Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri *
