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...

  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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
