Bazaars and buffets in Ramadan.

Into 7th day of Ramadan today, and I've been quite busy/tired to update (or read other blogs - sorry!)..

We have yet to go to any bazaar Ramadan...I'm sure there are lots of food being sold and the "excitement" of buyers and sellers are different during this month,


(Photos taken from google search)


..but I actually prefer to cook the dishes for berbuka and sahur, just simple recipes which I can make within one hour or so..hehe..

(Fried mee/noodle)

(assam pedas fish)

Apart from the bazaar, the hotels have been busy promoting their Ramadan buffets...but they are now getting very expensive, with their claims of so many spreads at the buffets,

..but how much can you eat within certain hours?...mmm..

Am not saying that we shouldn't, had been to few last few years. It's up to each individual, as some had said, "if they can afford it, why not?"...

Anyway, talking about buffet...here's our very own buffet spread ~ home-cooked ~ yesterday...

(Spring roll @ Popia - made for a second time after the day before..hehe..)

(Chicken rendang - I'd been anticipating of making this since noon..haha..)

(Lamb chop - had to put this in d oven before its "expiry date")

[Mixed salad ~ to compliment the lamb dish..but the avocado was a bit hard..not good for someone just getting over the toothache.. :-) ]

(Zam-Zam water and coffee)

a lot eh? hehehe..

Have had sardine rolls, curry puffs and spring rolls etc for the past few days...thinking of making "kuih ketayap" (thin layer of pancake filled with sweetened coconut) later this evening..hehe..

Selamat berpuasa and berbuka!

[Note : my "takziah"/condolences to the families of traders at bazaar Ramadan who lost their lives or injured during the strong winds that blew off their tents on Friday]

From theStar online:

JASIN: Two traders at the Jasin Ramadan bazaar were killed and two others seriously injured by flying debris during a freak storm that hit the area.

The dead were identified as Abdul Omar, 71, and Mahadi Mohamad, in his 40s.

One trader is in a coma and was admitted to the Malacca Hospital while another seriously hurt had been sent to Putra Hospital.

The incident happened at 5pm when some 30 traders were about to set up their stalls at the bazaar for the buka puasa crowd next to the Jasin Sports complex.

You made me starve with your post Cheqna. I like the simple yet nutricious recipes. :)

Chybee said...

waliz said...

Cheqna said...


meja masih muat lagi if u nak hantar food over..hehe..


Cheqna said...

W'salam Meen,

.itulah fikir panjang bila nak arrange office's buka puasa, with issue halal tak halal, n d cost yg tinggi..baik belanja kat lain after Ramadan...

pan Pac KLIA too far, d other side of our place..hehe..


Cheqna said...

Cats dear,

in a way puasa blogging, didnt have time during d day, at home dgn masak n everything else after berbuka, dah ngantuk..hehe..

now dah slow down a bit, sesekali can go visit u lah..ok?


Cheqna said...


hehe..hope by now you are full and can start blogging again.


Cheqna said...

W'salam PakWi,

sy kerja dekat je dgn rumah, bulan puasa ni balik 4.30pm, 15 mins after keluar office kadang dah mula masuk dapur kat rumah, normally by 6pm dah siap masak...tp masak cincai2 ajelah tu, tak de resepi yg complicated..hehe..


Cheqna said...


hope u don't stop blogging to go search for food like Julio..hehehe..

I try to prepare as much nutricious food as possible, but sometimes i really have cravings for the greasy or fast food (like 2day..thinking of ordering later this burger that I saw in d adverts last week...ha ha ha..)


Cheqna said...


banyak food, banyak lah lemaknya..hehe..


Cheqna said...


tq n no, tak off topic..true, sometimes we spend less time thinking of the unfortunate ones when it comes to spending, just b'cos we can afford it.

yes, its sadder to lose your loved ones during this period..

Nitin said...

what i love about ramadhan is the culinary delights that are out there. and i almost wait the whole year just to be able to savour the aroma and tastes it has to offer. I am gonna be impatiently waiting for eid to come. :).

Its tragic for something like this to happen. i just read the article in your post. and i find it tragic. quite sad something like that had to happen in this month especially.

I wish you prayers and goodness.
Ramadhan Mubarak.
