Travel: Gaya Street Sunday Market

Gaya Street… What a glorious address to be perched at on a Sunday mornings. Packed with people of sorts, it’s definitely one of those places to go on a weekly basis just to get de-social anxietilized (is there such a word?).

A weekend market opens here from wee hours of the dawn, up until 2pm in the afternoon on a Sunday only. Don’t ask me what time it opens, because it was already bustling when I got there at 8am.

With stalls sprawled all over the vicinity of Gaya Street, overflowing into the side streets, you could pretty much get EVERYTHING: From local produce, clothing, tools and potted plants, down to these friggin weird looking vegetables.

Just a piece of advice: If you intend to visit after 8am, don’t drive if you can afford a taxi. Otherwise, just walk. Parking and traffic is horrendous, especially later in the day.

I won't tell you about the girls that hang out there, and the fact that KK's hooker district is in the vicinity.

Paid the market a visit a few weekends ago, and I must say that my life was finally completed then ~ I got my grounded Tenom coffee powder.

I think I'll be there again tomorrow...

Ah...Gaya Street. They sell rabbits there too.

Oh, and people start setting up their stall as early as five in the morning. Yep.

And the Temon Coffee Powders ( according to my dad ) is priceless...

hey vincent, remember long time ago, you asked me how to get rid of the border for the picture? there's a function somewhere in your blog options that will get rid of the frame for you.

I posted it up using blogspot server for the first time and i discovered that. so just play around with it. If you have time that is...hehe....
