Ramadan Bazaar

It's the fasting month of Ramadan for Muslim. In Malaysia, this is the time where we have Ramadan Bazaars that sell all kind of local delicacies for our fellow Muslim friends to enjoy when they break fast in the evening. For those of us who do not fast, we also partake in the enjoyment of those delicious local food being on sale at the bazaar.

Here's a photo of a stall in SS18 Subang Jaya's Bazaar Ramadan that specializes in delicacies from the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, such as Nasi Dagang. My friend loves the condiment that is served with the rice sold here, i.e. fish sauce (called Budu). It is an acquired taste. She grows up in Kota Bahru and thus this is a good time for her to find Nasi Dagang, without travelling all the way to the East Coast.

What's your favourite local delicacy of your country?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
