Ayam Goreng Berempah is Deep Fried Chicken (merinated with spices).
Yes,it is that good if only they use fragrant rice (beras wangi),Fragrant steamed rice is not too hard and not too soft ,just nice & walla !!! quite different from the usual rice that cook in rice cooker.The well marinated deep fried chicken with spices was a great combination to nasi kukus and adding cucumber with tasty sambal cili.

I have been to Serikin a couple of time but never bother to buy things.This time I went with purpose to take pictures .
I also want to see for myself about the gossip I heard from mouth to mouth about preserved seafood such as dried shrimps,dried squids and dried salted fish is believed that this product were preserved using EMBALMING chemical to keep it long lasting.My curiosity about this gossip so I stood in front of the stall selling this product for about half half an hour.To my astonishment not a single fly or insect did infest these sea foods.
There are also merchandise for sale in Serikin that many young girls love to buy such as the item in the above photo.
The cinnamon stick and other spices & herbs that we can buy at a very low price in Serikin .
All the above picture was edited with LR3 presets that I download for free from the web.Credit to the author or creator ,Thanks.

The food sale at Ramadan Bazaar..
Few hours before breaking fast..a lot of people stampede the bazaar......
The magical moment of Ramadan in Malaysia are those market stalls selling a variety of foods and some are only available during Ramadan. Seeing people of all races and religions shopping and buying these foods are images that will forever be etched in one's mind. Ramadan is also that time of the year where family members make an effort to be home for the breaking of fast and be together as a family to enjoy and share those wonderful spread. Ramadan brings the family closer. Of course eating in moderation and eating healthy foods are key to a longer, happier and prosperous family lives.However, in Malaysia, the month itself has been tainted with the extreme gluttony during the entire month of fasting. Not sure what I’m talking about? Well, I don’t mean I am good Muslim then any other Muslim brother but the gluttony among most Muslims in Malaysia can be seen in the Ramadan Bazaar. A few hours before breaking fast, a lot of people will stampede the bazaar in order to buy loads of food for the breaking fast.

Malaysian Muslim celebrate Ramadan, towns and cities throughout Malaysia hold a Ramadan Bazaar. Each bazaar has its own distinctive flavour that comes to life after dusk with a series of stalls and vendors pedaling their wares. They are a great place for visitors to sample traditional Malay cuisine which is freshly prepared and cooked on open coals while you wait.
Stutong Ramadan Bazaar....Kuching
Kota Samarahan Remadan Bazaar-Desa Ilmu Commercial centre
Comes Ramadan Malaysians are spoilt for choice when it comes to food no matter they are Muslim or non-Muslim. In Ramadan there are plenty of temporary stalls selling food at the place gazetted by the local council for the whole month of Ramadan. Malaysians will flock the market normally after coming back from work and it spares them the hassle of cooking their meal for breaking of fast especially for both working parents
Just see for yourself how colourful and busy the market is.

If we talk about hunting for carpet,textile,fabrics and hijab(tundung in Malay),I always talk about this street of Jalan TAR(Tuanku Abdul Rahman).In fact ,Tuanku Abdul Rahman is the name of the first Yang di-Pertua Agong(His Highness or King) of Malaysia.However there is another area near little India(or Jalan Masjid India) that you can find many textile store and fabric outlets.
Normally this place will be crowded when festive season are around "Hari Raya".We can see many new street vendors.For women Jalan TAR & Jalan Masjid India is a place to seek matching hijab(Tudung in Malay) and spending the whole day checking & hunting every store for the perfect colours.
On saturday and as expected the crowd begin for a night market(Pasar Malam) hunting and bargaining for their goods from the street vendors.
Beside many textile,clothing,carpet and fabric store I also notice there are many budget hotel around Jalan TAR and Jalan Masjid India.Most budget hotel around this district offer very competitive discount & more discount if we book online.

Hey everyone,I'm back !!.You probably noticed that I haven't posted anything since last Wednesday.So what,the picture to-day.You want to know about the picture? Oh...it's just a seafood of clam family.This is some sort of clam or snail that requires a toothpick to dig out the meat or flesh.The flesh taste good dipped in chilli sauces.
Another local delicacy and this one they chop one end of for sucking ,then counter suck from the other end to get the flesh out.
All this perhaps belong to clams family,It's just like eating clams,mussels or stuff like that.Same texture but different size and same taste .

My friend told me if you go to Seremban in West Malaysia do drop by Haji Shariff's Cendol,the famous from a push cart street vendor now operate to a big and more space shop.They say Hj Shariff serves several cendol recipes such as cendol kacang,jagung,bandung and very popular cendol pulut.Back to my place Kota Samarahan (picture above),I saw this small street vendor selling cendol pulut.Cendol pulut is just a glutinous rice(pulut) with cendol and thick creamy santan,gula malaka & small ice cube.If you are in Kota Samarahan drop me a note,I'll give you a cendol pulut treat.
