A day at Precint 8 market, Putrajaya.

Precint 8, Putrajaya.

This is the place we normally stop by and buy groceries. A short drive away from home. There are things which we dont grow in the garden. We dont rear chicken, cattles or keep a fish pond. Therefore market is the place to go for barter trade. They give what we want, we give them back equivalent value in paper notes...



Kakdah's favorite stall.





very scary
when people handle knife with their left hand

kerang or cockles


he is very skillful


mountain of coconuts.

They clean up veggies,
take off old leaves before it gets to the stall

    Our market is always colorful.. not only on the items at the stall, but the colorful dress people are wearing, and the most important thing is our multicultural society.

    Three main ethnic live and mingle together; Malays, Chinese, Indians, and many more in Sabah and Sarawak. English and Malay language connect us and make each one us less distinct. Prime Minister, Dato Seri Najib wants ONE MALAYSIA.

    That's market, it will even be more colorful if we go down to eating place.. open air eating place!!

    Pick Malaysia as your next vacation.. hmmm, why not.

    cheers,

  5. Hello Bangchik, tq for introducing this market. I notice the place is well kept and clean too. If I stay around your area, I would definitely do my marketing there ;-) Oh, I hope my sweet potato plant will do well... this way I would buy less vege from the pasar ;-)

    Yes, I do agree with you about the market very clean and well looked after. You may want to give a try once a while, just for a change... Carrefour and Parkson sell about the same thing in their veggie and meat section, but nothing beats the open market we are so familiar with... haha...

    Good luck to your sweet potatoes... will it have purple flowers?.

    They really have to make the place clean and tidy, because of ongoing grading system. Anyone falls below a certain grade will be given warning letter, failing which termination of license will be taken.

    After a while, cleanliness becomes a habit....

    Yes, you can find lots of goodies!!...

    This is the permanent kind of market. There is another version, called pasar tani, a weekly open market. It was intended for farmers to sell their produce, but after a while, farmers cant cope with both i.e. gardening and selling. So pasar tani becomes just like another market, only it is weekly. To sell is a specialized job, therefore best left to sellers, gardeners toil the soil. That's how it goes anywhere in the world....

    Yes, the left handed guy is terribly skillful, and every movement is very quick.., chop.., chop... chop!!.

    Cheers,

  12. What a great looking place to shop. Reminds me of some of the markets in France. Very open, not like our "supermarkets" here. Do you also have the outdoor, more casual markets?

    We do have the outdoor markets... called Pasar Tani, open only daytime. The other one is the evening Pasar Malam.

  15. So much more to enjoy when the market is kept clean. How I wish some other markets will follow suit.
    Do not worry about left -handed people! I 'm one of them! and the knife is safe in our hands!!

    Don't forget to take photos when your plant blooms later, we really want to see them.. purple flowers... Ok Steph.

    Playing badminton against left handed player is always a tough one.... Badminton racket is awfully safe in left handed players..., agreeably knife is also safe in left handed persons. Keats,..

    have fun,

    Thanks for the drops and comments. This is a good, clean, tidy and well managed market. There are other different markets around.

    I have not visited for quite sometime the more open and casual kind of market. That will be more interesting. Sellers will bring their own big and colorful umbrella, bench and produce. The crowd can be very large, we practically squeeze our way through....

    With some kind of regulatory and punitive action, cleanliness can be a goal to go for... welcome back FJL, long time no see!!
