The Kuching market was hot and smelly, but at the same time colourful and intriguing. My dad-in-law took me and my friend Kong for a walk around the market one hot morning . . .
We passed the wet market first and it was way too smelly for Lauren!
By this time I was carrying Lauren around as it was too smelly and she had "no energy" as she lamented!
"Ikan bilis" - tiny fish which you fry until they are crispy and delicious!
A selection of newspapers at Kuching market
These strange things are coconut stalks; quite tasteless to me
A fine selection of chilis
Handing over the change . . .
A red juicy fruit named "jambu air"
More bags of my favourite "ikan bilis" or, anchovies
