After that I went for a short stroll in the Ramadan Bazaar nearby.
Some weird looking jelly/porridge for RM2.50 each.
3 pieces of kuih (can mix and match) for RM1. Can't get this price anywhere else.
Got myself a packet of carrot milk from this store. It was such a huge packet, and only RM2!
Didn't take many pictures cos my phone went out of battery. But overall it's a nice experience. :)
