Night market

Pasar malam (aka night market) is one of my favourite place to go. so far, I think my favourite is the one at SS2 PJ, on Mondays. but seldom have the chance to go already as I hardly go KL ever since I started working =_=

anyway, there're not many pasar malam here in Taiping. Aulong, Kampung Boyan, Changkat Jering and Simpang are those I know. and I find Simpang's one is the nicest to go! it actually has stalls (both malay and chinese) surrounded the shop houses near Taman Kota Jaya, and they're available every Tuesday from 7pm onwards.

portable van selling pearl tea (珍珠奶茶)

deep fried snacks like nuggets, french fries, sauseges, fish balls etc. this stall usually has the most queue!



portable van selling bak kua (dried pork meat), chicken floss with breads (they're from Ipoh)

dim sum (sorry shaky hands)

lok lok (dip with special chili/tomato sauce, yummy~)

all sorts of tit bits

sugar cane drinks, perfect for a hot weather like now

there're still many other food stalls which I dint manage to snap photos. apart from food, there're also stalls selling daily goods and groceries.

chinese burning incense and praying material



cloth, even stalls selling clothes for men, women and children (some of them are quite fashionable though)

and this Indian lady selling various types of bracelet and anklets!

I know this night market might be nothing compare to other bigger cities. but to me, I personally think it's the nicest at a small town like Taiping. wait til I have chance I shall snap more photos to show you! :D


  1. oh, look at the Indian jewelery! I didn't know she sells at Simpang pasar malam, or else I wouldn't be scouting at Aulong pasar malam. Haiyah, should have check it out earlier.

    I lived near that place when I was young and never once missed out this happening Tuesday night. It's truely very fun walking the "superb long" night market, lol!

  2. Mei, i always go there and buy milky favourite..heheh

  3. Yvonne, ya, I think she is the same lady we met at casher market the other day.. those jewelleries are really nice!
    and now, I'd wait for Tuesday to come so that I can go there again! ;))

    Linda, pearl tea is my favourite too, especially Yam flavor ^_^

  4. I like pasar malam too...see see look look, walk walk and eat eat... so good neh!!!=) At jb, there is 1 near my apartment on every monday but i seldom got chance to there since my bf always ot! Another one is on saturday is located far abit from my area, i think 25mins to there!Last time every week we will be there to eat assam laksa, cendol, bbq chicken (those malay 1), and only will go 1 or 2 times a month when bf is not tired after work! I think we will cut down to go there too as last week someone is lost their car there... so dangerous!! Oooppsss, i going to miss it all again~*sad*

  5. hi Hayley..coming by to read yr pasar malam post.. long time i didnt walk night market around my area.. each time i go, sure ends up spending a lot on food! :)

  6. Evelyn, yay! it's nice to walk (burn fats :P) and see things (though we dont have anything particular to buy). well may be you can invite your friends to go with you! but still, be careful also, and dont go too late oh.

    Reanclaire, yay me too! cant resist temptations, there're so many food to eat! chinese, malay, indian etc etc... *drooling*
    you have a nice day!

  7. Hmm I went there with hubby last week - Tuesday. U know what, i was try to snap some photos n blog about it too..But sked my hubby nag at least u blog about it. I like it and appreciate it! thnx

  8. Long long time I didn't see this indian lady in Aulong pasar malam. Now only I know she already migrated to Simpang pasar malam.

  9. Angeline, lol, just snapping photos, he shoud not nag you! there're so much to see, I like going there too!

    Yan, ya, perhaps you can make a trip there next week! ;)

  10. I am different from you, i dont like jalan jalan in pasar malam, thank god my whole family also dont like...

  11. Eugene, I do know some friends like you, they dont like the heat and the odour from the night market... well, I guess it's pretty much depends on individual!

  12. Hi Hayley, nice pics. I too used to love pasar malams. Been to most of them in all the States, as well Singapore and Sarawak too.
    And 3 of my neckties were bought from pasar malams, ha ha.

    Reason being I dislike wearing ties, and when hearing a VIP will be present at those project sites, had to grab one from these night markets.
    And? I still have them...only Rgt 3.00 too. And my friends thought they were or are designer brands, ha ha.
    Its a pity we don't have pasar malams the ones in Thailand too....and Sarawak....
    Have a nice day, Lee.

  13. Hello Lee, I've never been to Sarawak's nor Singapore's. And speaking of Thailand, you remind me of the night market in Hatyai! The one situated near Lee Garden Hotel is awesome! Many nice food to eat and cheap and nice clothing also.
    haha and yes, you'd agree that some of the things sell at the night market are of good quality! ;)

  14. Hey,I didnt know you came SS2,forgive me for not reading your blog for ages...and welcomed to SS2 as I'm one of the resident here:)

  15. June, I went SS2 night market a couples of times, during my study at UM. I love it! lots of things to buy/eat! and it's quite convenient to go there too!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
