Join us as we bring you on a tour around the Geylang Serai night bazaar, one of Singapore’s most popular Ramadan bazaars.First up: Picking up some festive ornaments for the homeCelebrating Ramadan means new outfits! We love the intricate details on the sleeves of these Baju Kurungs (dresses)After the sun sets, the fast is usually broken with sweet drinks that provide a quick energy boost like the KatiraWhen we see the crowd, we get excited ‘cause that’s where the food’s atWe asked Mak Cik if her Nasi Lemak was good—her smile says it allWe dug into these succulent Ayam Bakar skewers-and the Singaporean Pasar Malam (night market) staple, a good ‘ol Ramly burger!We even caught a live performance of this man belting out a tune at the pop-up Karaoke stationBesides traditional Muslim dishes and snacks, international dishes are also available at the bazaar. This includes the Swiss Raclette (roasted vegetables and meat topped with bubbly molten cheese)-Mouth-watering Turkish Doner Kebab Wraps-and even Thai Iced Milk Tea!'Cause of fun rides like these-kids are nuts about night bazaars too!We had a go at the “Fishing” game booth (we didn’t win anything, sadly) and we got pretty excited when we saw these tubs of cotton candy—we could munch on these fluffy clouds of sugar all day longLet’s not forget about the addictive Keropok (deep-fried crackers)—Keropok Udang (Prawn Crackers), get in our bellies!!Towards the end of the bazaar, we stumbled upon the plant stall-and brought a prickly little friend home with usWe couldn't help but snap a shot of the dazzling light up display - End -
