Geylang Serai - Hari Raya Puasa 2011 Part 1

We are a multi racial country and this month the muslim will be celebrating Hari Raya Puasa. Different ethnic group in our country have their own little town which sell mainly the familar stuff of each ethnic group.

For the Chinese, we have our Chinatown, the Indians have their Little India, the Eurasians have Orchard Road and the muslims have Geylang Serai but really we actually shop in each other town and all over Singapore.

On August 30th, the muslim will be celebrating Hari Raya Puasa so Geylang Serai is suddenly filled with huge crowds busy shopping for the festival. Even non muslim went to Geylang Serai to soak in the atmosphere and to shop too. I was there to eat my favourite nasi padang in the hawker centre. :)

Saw these jars of cookies at the stall reminded me of my shopping in chinatown during Chinese New Year.



Besides cookies, there were cooked and delicious food at the Bazaar.





Tomorrow I will share photos of non food stalls at Geylang Serai and Friday Skywatch I will share the light up of the streets along Geylang Serai.
