VISITING THE FISH MARKET IN MAKASSAR


16th OCTOBER 2017 ~ The guide stopped the car at this place so I could see the real fish market in Makassar. Fresh fish and seafood were in abundance - I just wished I could buy some to be brought home.




























This was the river that connected the market to the sea. The fish and other sources of food came straight from the ocean, hence the freshness.






















If I were to migrate to Makassar, this fish market could be the main reason for doing so.

SHOPPING AT THE MORNING MARKET IN MAKASSAR


16th OCTOBER 2017 ~ I had to go the market as I wanted to buy certain local products to bring home. Among the food items bought were "tempe" [fermented soy cake] and raw "belinjau" crackers. There were not many people so shopping could be done easily.
































I just wished I could buy the fresh vegetables but they would all be rotten by the time I arrived home the next morning.

MY FIRST VISIT TO IKEA JOHOR BAHRU

the IKEA staff is an ex-student
I was finally here - the latest attraction in town: IKEA. I just wanted to have a look what this place had to offer and at the same time, to see if there was anything that might catch my attention. (I almost bought a carpet). It was a working day so I could walk around peacefully. I thought I would not rub shoulders with anyone I knew until I saw an ex-student of SMKTUN, Siti Farhana, who is on duty.







































The place is real huge. This should be a good place for walking, if I need to do some physical exercise.

The next time I come to this place, I must try its famous meat balls at the food court.
