The moment I stepped down from the bridge over Klang River at the LRT station, there were stalls lining up the road side. Many of them selling clothes, belts, wallets and etc predominantly displaying goods to usher in Hari Raya Puasa. More of them in front of Wisma Yakin and Masjid India. I was enjoying the occassional blast of Hari Raya songs but as I walk along, the scenery kinda changed. Towards the part of Wisma Hanifa and Semua House, the stalls were displaying Indians wares and I have to endure the loud Bollywood songs from nearby music shop. Heh, the best of both world? At the backlane of Globe Silk Store (is it Jalan Bonus??) more stalls lined up both sides. Since it was hours before buka puasa (breaking fast), many stalls were preparing and cooking food. So I would not have much photos on buka puasa fare. I guess those you can visit Masak-masak to feast your eyes on all the local goodies found in the various Ramadhan bazaar that boo_licious visited.
