This is my second Ramadhan bazaar this year because once a year is never enough. Actually, I am not sure if twice or how many times is enough for me. I never tire of Ramadhan bazaars because the sights, sounds, smells and atmosphere are always such wonderful treats for all our senses.
I doubled my walking pace towards the bazaar when I saw bellowing smoke and smelled the aroma of roasting chicken over charcoal.
The popiah stall where I could hear the crackers breaking when the lady wraps the spring rolls.
Foot long roti John by the cheerful crew.
