I love to go to this type of morning market, to look at the fresh produce..and eat yummy food, of course. The market is near to my alma mater, and I used to forego extra sleep in the morning just to wait for the bus and have a delightful morning there. What a blissful time it was. This market is really special because they sell smoked beef and smoked catfish. Those things are what mom was looking for. Oh, and duck too.

After looking around at the other things, we had breakfast at this small shop. I think it offers mainly fried kuey teow and fried noodles. They were quite good for something I think lacked color at first..as I prefer darker fried kuey teow.
Then it got hotter, so we decided to leave the market and continue the shopping trip at the mall. My dad bought me Adam Khoo's Winning the Game of Life, and I bought two other books..Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (Lisa See) and Daughters of Rome (Kate Quinn). It's been so long since I last bought books and I just grabbed those two. Hopefully I'll enjoy reading them.
We bought too much food today - lemang, a couple of pieces of ketupat palas, some sushi, pastries, fish fillets..and now I feel bloated. Too much glutinous rice.
