This miniature rooster was popular among the visitors at the Gaya Street Sunday market. I am not sure if he is a potential meal or a pet.

sarong dress.. what colour hair should she wear?
I have seen many travellers wearing these sarong dresses in the hot weather here. We are currently in a hot and rainy spell,  glaring sun, humid as well. (33C – 24C, feels like 43C). Are you ready for summer?

a 'rare' portrait of me.

A portrait of me by Ian Rummey (UK). We stopped at this stall for fresh young coconuts after a walkabout at the waterfront night market, Kota Kinabalu. {I am rarely in front of the lens.}

#201103-06 Lightbox. Other photos in my Bazaar -KK City set.

Fresh young coconuts were RM2.50 each, and coconut water in ice at RM1.00 a cup. Cheap and good. (US$1 = RM3.07)

The night market consists of a wet section for fish and other produce from the sea, and a dry section for vegetables and fruits. There is also a section for hawker food. The atmosphere is friendly and the people eager to interact. Although Malay is commonly spoken at this market, simple English is widely understood. They like you, Ian.

She was selling an assortment of seaweeds, including the popular caulerpa (commonly called sea grapes, green caviar, “ar-arosep” or “lato” in the Philippines). Read about this grapelike seaweed on Wikipedia here.The woman said the seagrapes are eaten fresh.

I found a recipe to make a salad from this seaweed here. I also found a blog with an entry about this salad “lato” here. The photos look delicious!

I spent an hour at the market, with a traveler and photographer from U.K. {I think you will remember this stall at the market, Ian.} We enjoyed ourselves, sampled some jack fruit and fresh coconut water, too. Oh, we normally drink our coffee in small glass mugs like the one in the photo. Coffee cups belong in the hotels, cafes and restaurants. 🙂 .
