Slow start to Ramadan bazaar

THE yearly Geylang Serai night market, held during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, is off to a slow start with fewer stalls than planned, fewer shoppers and a drop in spending, according to news reports.
Crowds are far less at the Geylang Serai night market this year, averaging 13,000 shoppers each night, compared to last year's 20,000. Visiting the Bazaar last Saturday I couldn't tell if there were really less visitors slowly crawling along the packed isles. And at least the food stalls were doing good business after sunset when people brake fast.

Shooting stalls had queues for folks to show of their ability to hit the "bulls eye".

Want to win a lava lamp or Winnie the Poo then better hit the target! The guy below trying to get as close as possible to increase the chance of winning in shooting one handed. BTW, he missed it!
New clothing, carpets, curtains, shoes and much more for Hari Raya Adilfitri, the end of Ramadan.
Flowers, glass pearls and other decorative items for the house

As usual in Singapore, regardless of religion or culture, the food stalls attract the most crowds

Turkish Kebab
all time favorite: chicken wings

Ikan Tanckap Sendiri a Indonesian and Malaysian fish cake is also known as otah-otah, otah or
...otak in Singapore.
There are different forms of otak-otak originating from different regions. However, otak-otak from the south of Malaysia and from Singapore is wrapped up as a thin slice using banana or coconut leaf and grilled over a charcoal fire. As a result, it ends up reddish-orange, drier and with a more distinct smoky fish aroma.
Where world gourmet meets! In a restaurant in Geylang Serai!
The Night Market is open from August 15 to September 26
