Last Sunday at Chowrasta Market

It’s the time for a yearly visit to Chowrasta Market in town. Every year, when close to Chinese New Year, mom sure bring me to Chowrasta Market for a walk. I also like going there because there’s many people, very happenings, I like!

Why before Chinese New Year? I also don’t know why, maybe there’s more Chinese New year-related stuff to see at there I think.

Woke up pretty early that morning, at around 8am, freshing up took me 1 hour then arrived there at around 93oam. There’s already many people there when I was there.

The most crowded stalls are the stalls that sell clothes, many ladies gathered and pick their favourite. Although there’s no fitting room, clothes bought can be exchange after you find it not suitable. Cool right?

Though, pasar malam (night market) have more fashion stuff then morning market, morning market is more about meat and vegetable.

Very old fashion type of buying fish. Dad told me last time when he was small, he buys fish in this way and till today, it’s the same.

One very stupid thing is, I don’t know why people want to drive into this crowded street. It’s market and full of people in the morning, they knew it and they still want to move it, mindless. The state authority should road block the place during the market hour.
