Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!

We started from the beginning of the street... 
A few policemen were on the patrolling around the area.. 
We felt safer...
More like food paradise... so much of this and that... 
Food I have not seen or taken before... 
Two interesting ladies selling something good here... 
Know what these are?
Otak Otak... We bought a packet to try....
Oh my goodness.... so heavily spiced and spicy!
Ingredients filled to the brim... 
Saw a crowd here... went nearer to look..
Selling slabs of cooked pork ribs... 
Must be good otherwise no buyers...
Er... this, I am not sure.... how I wish I could try every stall..... hahahahaa...
Hey, are those pomeloes?  Ipoh mali?

Cute ladies selling these.... 
I think they are sticky rice with red beans and stuffed into the bamboo...
See, how I wish I could try a piece here and there.... 
Bought three packets of these for 100 bahts... 
Tasted like love letters with a bit of black sesame...
Beautiful sweet smiles from the Thais... 
And not only that, they can be very sporting too!!
Yes, I tried their Papapa Tea .... 
And this auntie can speak Cantonese...
We tried a bit of the above... 
Oh dear, a bit of this and that... our tummies were almost full...
So we opted for a very light dinner... 
Well, we are small eaters ma... 
hahahahaa...

  3. If the otak otak is very spicy, then I would not dare to try. So much food and for some, don't even know what food those are. Good that both of you managed to eat some until full.

  5. Such a whole lot and it all looks good! No one would be able to taste everything, you would have to return each night! I see a Starbucks, do you ever go? We have one very close and go there all the time.
