To The Pasar Tani We Will Go

Another road trip to Ipoh is coming up. I am looking forward to this for several reasons – the second being able to go to the pasar tani that opens on Saturdays only. We were there in May but as we woke up late, we reached the pasar tani when it was about to close. Nevertheless, we managed to buy some heh bee (dried prawns) and ikan bilis halus (baby anchovies).

I prefer buying them at such places instead of from supermarkets as I can smell and see if they are of good quality or not. Groceries such as these are also available from the markets and sundry shops but the pasar tani is more accessible. Besides, our planned trip to Ipoh conincides with the day when the pasar tani is opened. So why not?
