Kuching Market

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


  1. Too bad my dad couldn't stay longer to look for my sago worms... hmm.. maybe Lauren should have stayed with me at home... LOL

  2. Very nice all. Fabulous series, I like the street markets and this has much charm.

  3. Whenever I travel, I love to visit the local markets! Your presentation is very nice. Wouldn't be nice if you will present us the exotic fruits we do not know in Europe?

  4. Fie, Lauren should have stayed at home, that's what I advised all along! It was just too much for her..

    Leovi, thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Traveling Hawk, yes I would love to present more to you all. On that occasion I was carrying Lauren in one arm, camera in the other hand, and it was terribly hot and sweaty, so we were rushing to get out of there!

  5. I had problem loading the pictures the other day, so I gave up. Beautiful series of pictures of the market. Very colourful and a good depiction of the market.

  6. ordinary malaysian, thanks a lot, it was fun photographing such an interesting scene!

  7. Hi Duncan I am catching up with my blogging friends and you welcomed me home by making me feel homesick for Asia already with your posts! I love visiting markets and will be sharing some of my photos soon.

  8. Thanks for your visit Linda! So glad you enjoyed your visit here and I look forward to seeing some of your photos :)
