Unfortunately i found Laksa Sarawak, dabai, Terung Sarawak, and a local cake, Celurut... More

As it has moved to another place nearby, we wasted some time looking for it and ended up late. We went there on Sunday afternoon. Stores are open from Saturday 9am to Sunday 3pm. The stores were closing one by one. We managed to get things that we want to bring back as souvenir. Ikan Terubuk Masin, Telur Ikan Terubuk,... More

first i have to admit that we live in Asia. The market moved to a new place, which you can reach with the local bus for RM 1.50. There is nothing special about it, except if you never have seen local markets in Asia or Africa.

We visited the market late on a Saturday afternoon - it is clean and has an interesting array of fresh fruit and fish but lacks atmosphere. I have been to many Asian markets and this is the least interesting and vibrant I have been to.
