My trip to Malaysia would not be complete without a visit to an evening market. Considering the sweltering heat during the day, it’s no wonder the evening markets are so popular in Asia; it is a much better alternative to walking on melting asphalt and sweating like there is no tomorrow during the day.
Evening markets are a melting pot of cultures, where you can find food and drink from Malay, Chinese, Indian, and other ethnic groups that populate Malaysia. You get to interact with friendly vendors and taste a great variety of new foods (my favorites were satay and smoked duck).
Here I would like to share with you some of the pictures I took that evening.
Jackfruit is the largest tree fruit in the world. It can weigh up to 100 lbs. It is believed to originate from India but is quite popular in Asia. Its flesh is white or yellowish, full of large seeds. The flavor is comparable to a combination of tropical fruit like pineapple, mango and persimmon.
