Pasar Malam food

Night market is a trend here in Asia; most of the countries have proudly carried this unique culture for street markets at night for cheap bargains and down-to-earth prices of lower-end products ranging from food to clothes for the society.
Sadly,I should say, nowadays, even night markets no longer boast of really discounted or cheap bargains.

Anyway, just a peek into some local night market food
Muar Chee

This is a delicacy made of glutinous rice; which were cubed and then sprinkled with peanuts.

This is a type of pick and carry food; where you snack upon.
My mummy loves this.
In Penang, they even sprinkled with fried garlic

Lok Lok; or skewer food can also be found in night markets; yeah, they are going mobile on franchise now:)

You can either choose to eat at the stall; or you can dip/cook and then take away with the sauce in a stereofoam box.

This is not the famous smelly beancurd(I CAN'T stand that!!)

This is just a normal fried beancurd aka Tau Kua stuffed with sliced cucumber

You dip into the chilli sauce or sweet sauce for condiment

I don't frequent night markets; but it's definitely a Malaysian or Asian culture to have all these brightly-lit stalls at nights near residential areas on a weekly basis:)
