It is Chinese New Year eve today! As usual, I went to Sibu central market with mum early in the morning to buy foods for reunion dinner tonight.
When we reached town at about 6am, the market area already crowded with cars and people! You hardly see traffic jam as early as 6am, but this happened on Chinese New Year eve. Illegal parking made the jam even worse!
In my observation, there were few stalls which have the best business. On top of the list, is barbecued and roasted meat stalls! You could see people surrounded the stall to fight for their portion. Short people like me hardly see what is going on inside the stall as people won't give any space for you to take a look! Can you remember the picture of some poor Africans starving and when UN sent them foods, everyone surrounded the lorry and fight for the foods? Yeah! That exactly pictured what happened at barbecued meat stalls!
Then no.3 is the oily fresh mee stall. I guess "cha mee" (stir-fry mee) or cha kueh tiaw plays quite important role in reunion dinner? Too bad I forgot to snap some photo about the fresh mee stall. Maybe I was looking at pretty girl at that time until I forget to take photo!
The night market or pasar malam became pasar siang (morning market) as most stalls opened for 24 hours!
