I just woke up from a long nap. Was up at 8 today. Somehow i was pumped and ready to go for yoga. Been training myself to wake up early past few weeks and today for the first time i was able to catch the 9am Bikram class with Aliaa. Aliaa who just came back from a 2 day trip from KL was SUPER surprised by this was all like ‘Omg, this girl i leave you two days now you can wake up in the morning already!’. What a jerk. hahahaha.
Anyway, Bikram was okay. I’m still having trouble doing some of the postures and because of this i tend to get over-emotional during classes. The instructor told me that this was normal as our bodies tend to store up emotions over a period of time, that only gets released during exercise. Interesting. If this is the case..i must have been walking time bomb in the last couple of months. But all in all it was good, i even went for a 20 minute jog on the treadmill when i got back. Eh batah jua kan kurus ani. Kalau ku chatning mcm si Tina Turner during yoga.. kurus kali capat ah? yang anu Nam Yoho Renge Kya ah.. huhu. Kan. Cari pasal. hahahaha.
I have photos. Went to Night Market at Vic Mark the other night. The main attraction of the market are the over-30 stalls selling a variety of international cuisine. There were also a couple of other stalls around the market selling things like arts & crafts and over-priced reworked vintage dresses..but people came mainly for the food. Which i thought weren’t all that.
There were CORN..dipped in a choice of butter+chicken salt , butter+pepper or just “butter+can i have $4 please?” seriously. They charged that much for a cob, and the corn weren’t even as sweet as i hoped (to have paid) them to be. I felt cheated.
Went with the Hassan girls.
tables were set up around the market for the convenience of those who came.
Each stall was decorated festively according to the theme of food they were selling. I found this man at the Spanish Churros stall. ani baru BASA tangannya pablo!
I think this stall had the longest line of people.
Rahim & Nad joined the fun… sanggup durang bebaris. heh. walaupun gambar ani bukan mcm bebaris.. tetapi mcm pre-wedding shot. hahahaha. Nad’s 20+++++++!!!! Rahim’s only 14!!!! so no. definitely NOT A PRE WEDDING SHOT.
Next door to Churros were the Africans. In which Nawa dared me to go up to one of their men and tell them that “i really really really like your costume, would u care for a dance?”. hahahahah. The stupid games we play.There was this one time i dared Nawa to go to the 7eleven near our house and tell the man behind the counter “Thank you, i LOOOOVE you” . The only words that managed to come out of her mouth were “..Tha….Where is San-Deep?” wahahahah buleh kah ya cari si San deep. btw kel, si Sandeep ani yang bekaca mata ah. huhuhu. yang KAU ckp hemsem. *cough*.
just look at how african she looks. huhuhu.
Next door to the africans were the Gozleme turks.
the owner was Nawa’s sugar daddy.
Girl making Gozleme. A gozleme at this stall cost about $9 bucks to buy each. The taste factor if i was to rate it out of $10 bucks.. $1.08. The one at the market in Sydney road is better. Kel, remember the old scary lady who makes it at Sydney road?
Me: can i grab one goz-lee-mee please?
Old lady: NOH! GOOZ-LE-MAY!!
ah. Her Gozleme is better walaupun ya ganas sikit. Besar macam gajah. Kecil macam semut. Ganas macam manusia yang tidak makan seminggu.
Abang manith jual Gozleme. Look at how festive he looks!
We skipped ‘Mauritius’ and went straight to Kebabs.
Koftas. Which were just as mediocre as the Gozlemes.
By the time we got our dinner, i was too lazy and too hungry to explore the market further. so i returned to our table where Nad had bought $7 bucks worth of soggy chinese noodles. And an ive-had-better-plate of Butter chicken from the Indian stall.
but lapar punya pasal, they all ate in silence. huhuhu.
The same pretzel lady i met at the Chocolate festival a few months back was there!
For 5 bucks a pop, i was expecting more than bread disguised as a pretzel in cinnamon powder.
Rahim queued for Dutch pancakes drenched in icing sugar and maple syrup. This almost made the highlight of my evening..until..
Nawa brought back a plate of honey dumplings + ice cream!! This was really2 good. The dumplings were still hot when it got to the table. the choc & icecream made it..oh so dreaaamy.
Nad’s fork of dumpling, before popping it in to her mouth.
Tharwana and I suddenly had a craving for chocolate mouse and rich iced chocolate.
Another highlight of the evening were also the churros.
By the end of the it all, i came up with this theory that the food festival were set up for the org puteh living in the kampongs who have never heard of food like.. nasi goreng.. mee goreng.. samosa.. doner kebab.. SAMBAL BELACAN ..in which the night market would be sure to please them to no end. The food might not be all that, but the ambience was great. I couldn’t decide whether it was the stall owners dressing up in their national costumes or the music coming from all sides of the market but there was just something about Victoria Market dressed as a Night Market that i find very charming. I wouldnt go back for the food but ill definitely go back for more ice chocolate and picture taking. My battery died half way through my churro. hahahahaha. The market will be running up till January..those of you who will be in Melbourne i recommend you to go to the night market..i found that most of the stalls are halal.
will be taking tharwana and rahim to crown tonight. Arcade time!!!!!!!!!
