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.

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)

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. 🙂 .

thirsty travellers.

Travellers passing through Kota Kinabalu. It is hot and humid here. The cafes and pubs are popular places to chill out after a day in the sun. Cheers, Pavel and Karl.

Compared to Malaysians, it seems that people from western nations travel a lot more on vacations. It is nice to see many people from distant countries. Thanks to budget airlines, many Malaysians are now travelling overseas on their vacations. However, most will work a lifetime before they get to see other parts of the world.
