Food fest in town




It's been almost 2 weeks now since the wonderful parade and celebration for the king's birthday and the usually during this time of the year, the town will receive lot's of visitors, in fact many of them only bother to come to town during this period of time. Most of the time though, the town is just a small, peaceful and quite little town and of course beautiful....





During this time of the year, all the buildings around the town are decorated with big poster or banners with birthday wishes to His Majesty The King, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah as well as the nation's flag and all those beautiful lights all around the town....







And at the same time there will be many night stalls selling all kind of stuff, from foods (mostly foods though) to some sort of toys, apparels, cloths, fashion accessories, children's toy and what ever...







Balloons - parents with small kids usually try to avoid this ^_^





Cotton candy? Last time somebody told me this is actually from those used cotton buds (you use them to dig your ears), they recycle it, put some sugar and they become cotton candy... turn out that it's not true LOL ^__^



















Some cosplayers ? LOL ^__^






The "restaurant zone";






And this is where I don't like it do much... traffic jam... too many people, you have to walk slowly... imagine if you are rushing to toilet... would be dreadful right... but then again that's the way it goes, you need a better vowel control.... LOL







Some interesting stuff here.... this can be helpful if you want to do those Ultraman or Gundam diorama... unfortunately the seller doesn't want to sell it... damn!!!!

Just for display apparently >__<











The fruits sections.... this is the popular "Long Anne" fruit or locally known as "Longan" - original made in China LOL...






And this is the famous "Hairy Tan" fruit....




Because it has so many hairs... so we call em "Hairy Tan" and since the name is "Tan" I suspect they are "Hokkien" fruits LOL ^__^





And more of those foods and BBQ stuff;






My loot of the night... just this cheap SGD 1.00 burger (about USD 0.82), nothing great about it, basically just bread and meet....





And of coz this "fried tang hoon" - something like slim noodles LOL ^__^






And that's about it.... another year, another festival and celebration, people come, family outings, buy their foods, get tired and go home.... and next year, we wait for the same again...
