Embarrassing fact but…I’ve never noticed the sun rising nor setting in Malaysia until I took this photo… Maybe I never got up early enough, and I never left work until it got dark (I worked in Kuala Lumpur for 12 years). Or maybe, I just didn’t stop to smell the roses… This was taken slightly after 7 am a few days ago, when I went to the market with my Mom.
Visit Skywatch on Friday for more photos of the sky…
These chickens will end up in a dish on a dinner table… awful thought, now that I’ve come face to face with them.
Or they may end up like this… roast meat. I think this lady is selling roast duck.
A stall offering dried seafood.
The umbrellas close to one another formed a canopy… not good for photography especially for someone who doesn’t like to use the flash… Anyway, a lady waited for her purchase at a food stall, and fruit sellers got busy as more customers started to arrive.
This must be Mom’s favourite stall. When she arrived, she left her basket with them, and came back over and over again to drop off various purchases. When it was time to leave, I was surprised how much she had purchased and accumulated here. No problem though; one of the men collected and arranged them on a trolley. Then he took the trolley to the car and even unloaded the goodies into the car boot. Now that is good service!
I love the colours!
Meat hung like laundry! A smiley butcher…
Selling poultry. Another smiley butcher… I love the atmosphere here. Lots of greetings, well wishes and jokes everywhere we walked. Guess they all know my Mom, coz she’s been coming here for 30 years! They didn’t even mind that I poked around with my camera.
This post is getting too long, so I will continue in another post. Hope you are having a nice week.
Not the typical scene for a tourist, but I will add this to Scenic Sunday.
