Market Here, Shop There
Closer and closer to CNY, the market was getting redder and redder. The pace was catching up. Definitely more people than usual judging from the crowds and the lack of parking. Mum stopped at a fishmonger's truck and I was shocked by a large grouper that was on the weighing scale. It was not the size of it that caught my eye, but the fact that it looked like it was dripping in cum! Guess bukkake is not uncommon among fish. Haha. On a serious note, the slime is a layer of mucus that helps fish with gas transport, provide protection, and reduce turbulence in the water.
Ventured to Taman Bukit Desa for Sarawak Laksa at Charlie's Cafe because we were bored of the food options at OUG. Taman Bukit Desa was very peaceful compared to the chaos at the market. Always quiet at that neck of the woods.
On the way home, we turned into Pearl Shopping Gallery, an interesting new addition to Pearl Point. Located across the road from Jalan Sepadu, it's connected to the old wing via a bridge. Yes, it's always about bridges with shopping malls these days. Inside, there's a small Village Grocer and multiple food establishments (for some reason they have three Korean restaurants). Notable outlets are Paradise Dynasty, Kyochon, Go Noodle House, Kin Kin Pan Mee, and Powerplant. There's also Cremeo that serves premium soft serve ice cream. Will give an update as I try the food outlets there!
