Geylang Food Map: Take a little ride down Geylang Serai~

Wowee! My first time going to Geylang Serai for their bazaar and I can say that the Kampong spirit has infected me. The stall tenants really know how to hype the bazaar-goers, by cheering every 10 to 15 minutes. Their cheers fill the entire tent, and can leave a newcomer looking around, wondering what has happened.

Every year, this large bazaar is held on the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims begin their fasting. Many Muslims head down to the bazaar to break their fast at dusk, and partake of the wide variety of halal snacks.

The food section was thriving with customers of all races, everyone was looking out for cheap and delicious pasar malam food.

Ramly burger! Our first buy of the night :)

The bread stacked up is called Roti John. It looks like a Subway sandwich, minus the veggies. Personally I think it’s too plain, if I’m not wrong, there’s only a piece of fried egg inside the bread.

Barbequed wings! Looks damn delicious.

Kebabs! The stick of beef meat is so thin, they must have had a good sales day!

Turkish Ice cream. Playful playful guy.

That’s my hand!

Hey I want my ice cream!!!

.

.

.

Am I finally getting it??

No! Damn, I got tricked again. -_-!!

He had so many tricks up his sleeves, there was once I thought I was going to hold the cone, but to my horror there was no cone, and I touched the sticky ice cream. Omg…

Finally, I earned my ice cream~ :)

Mini Vadai. They are super soft and chewy!

Then we crossed the road to the other side of the bazaar, where they are selling more clothes/ home decors/ accessories and snacks.

Traditional costumes in all sorts of colours and designs to prepare for Raya!

For the little ones…

.

.

.

Okay they look a little freaky.

.

Bustling with people, this must be a shopping haven for Malays. Also a good place if you want to get a traditional costume for that Racial Harmony day~

.

Lastly, you can’t leave the place without some nice cookies! I remember the times when Zah would bring her cookies to school and share with all of us =) Delicious~

Really glad to spend an evening there, felt really amazed by the colours and food the bazaar offered. I could also feel the festive mood as Muslims gear up for their New Year. So happy!!

The huge bazaar is at a walk-able distance from Paya Lebar Mrt station.

Fact you probably wouldn’t know about the bazaar: There is actually a first-aid post near the hawker centre, manned by Maris Stella High School’s St John’s Ambulance Brigade boys. So go look for them if anyone has fallen/ has an open wound/ fainted/ or any injuries that you want tended to.
