a bit of Hari Raya Puasa…

Hari Raya Puasa is known as Feast of breaking the fast marks the end of Ramadam – fasting month for the muslims. In Singapore, bazaars were set up in Geylang Serai right from the start of the fasting month because muslims often gather in this place during sundown.

Before the Hari Raya Puasa day itself, I roamed around the area to experience a bit of the celebration.

Baju Kurungs and Baju Kebayas

The streets in Geylang Serai were so lively and full of stalls selling foods like fried jackfruit and banana, glutinous rice cakes and other delicacies.Carpets were being  auctions and Christmas lights which I don’t think they call Christmas lights. There are also a lot of stalls selling Baju Kebayas and Baju Kurungs and gold jewelleries.

Experiencing this festivity won’t be complete if I don’t try some Malay food. I ate this pancake like food with curry and coconut milk sauce on the side, not sure if it is called Roti Canai. If you love spicy food and looking for something light, you might like it.
