"pasar minggu" in kuale...

this entry is specially dedicated for lina. she posted about her 'pasar malam' (night market) trip nearby her place somewhere in klang valley about 1+ weeks ago. i told her that 'pasar minggu' (sunday market) in kuale is the best mainly because its located by the 'tepi sungei' (river side)... ahhh!... so blissful... besides that i guess its the huge one i have ever know. it has lotsa stalls selling many things like fabs, ready-made clothes, food stuff, ready-made food and many more.

pasar minggu won't be an excuse for me at all to skip my weekend mornings routine— 6 rounds walk up and down the hill of 'bukit residen' (resident's hill) for about an hour non-stop. the only thing is we will normally go for it a bit late on sunday if we wanna go to the pasar minggu because if we were there too early then we won't join the crowd to feel the environment hehee... owh... you know what i mean? so since we wanted to go to the pasar minggu right after our walks, we just parked the car there, by the tepi sungei. its easier then. if not by the time we finished our walks it would not be easy to get one.

caution: this post is with lots of pictures. its somehow or rather just like a show and tell kind of thingy, so enjoy!...

'pasar minggu' in the making...

this is one of the old shop houses lot in town, still stands as its original. if i am not mistaken an artist painted this one for a postcard. nonetheless some of them have been renovated to modern types of shop houses.

so since we have already parked the car at the pasar minggu area, we walked thru this bridge to get to the other side.

and walked on to the other side of the road for us to start our usual walk at the 'bukit residen' (resident's hill).

this pic has been taken on my 6th rounds, at around 8.15 am. owh... how can i resist of not taking at least one or two pics of my beloved school.

well if you could see clearly from the above pic, there are 4 dates written on some of the steps. its to show the dates of the most critical flood levels that happened to kuale then. i am afraid that i am not sure of the levels. maybe i can find out for you, and for my general knowledge too :~)

fyi these were the dates, from number 1 being the highest—
1) 30 december 1926
2) 28 december 1897
3) 7 december 1931
4) 15 december 1947

so after we completed the walk, this time we walked thru 'laman budaya' to go back to the pasar minggu area.

we used the other bridge instead...

see people... i told you... if we don't park here in the first place, i am sure it was hard to find a parking space then.

i think 'pasar minggu' in kuale is the best than any other place *winks*
actually people its not really a matter for us whether we go there to buy something or not. its a pleasure for us to just stroll and have a wonderful time there... i like!

sometimes we dropped by this shop for a good breakfast yummyyy!!!... i wallop everything in my curry mee bowl lol... :) its located at the tepi sungei along the pasar minggu road.

like i said earlier since the pasar minggu is huge, we make it a practice that only three or four stalls are a must for us. if we are to cover all of them, i guess it will take hours i tell you...



"pasar minggu" in kuale...

one of the stalls that we must drop-by is this indian lady' who sells antique stuff, old coins and anything old. we didn't buy anything here though, just browsing the stuff that she has and chit-chatting with her ;)



"pasar minggu" in kuale...

we also buy sunday papers (lots of them, except chinese and indian papers of course). take note that we don't buy any on other days.



"pasar minggu" in kuale...

this apam balik stall is a must too. we won't buy apam balik at any other place, except for this one as its THE best i tell you...



"pasar minggu" in kuale...

take note that i snapped the above pic when we were already at the 'jam besor' (big clock tower) on our way back home.


"ma... you are driving but still can take pictures!", megat was mumbling at me hehee...


so i told him, "ya... this last bit is to complete my pasar minggu picture album, specially for my online friends hehee... to show them of how really big kuale's pasar minggu is *winks*"
