Oooohh!!! my favourite. I hope to make a trip to Taiping end of this month and will definitely drop by at Casual Market to get my hands on these goodies. I wonder if the char koay teow man still sits on a stool to fry. Instead of banana leaves for tar pau, he uses a different leaf (not sure what leaf it is).

Joe, the nyonya kueh here is top stuff. Don't miss it. There are two stalls on the ground floor, next to each other. If you find time, go upstairs (1st Floor) and visit Ah Loy's antique shop.

Hi Kayes,


I can't wait to head to Casual Market so sink my teeth into those morsels. They look so good. I remember having ice kacang from a mamak stall which was very good and instead of serving in a bowl. it is served in a mug (like a beer mug). Interesting way to eat it. Yes, I will definitely pay a visit to the antique shop and I'm sure there will be lots of interesting things there.

Hi Gadzy,
Bulan Ramadhan is approaching so you shouldn't be looking at this pic. during the daylight hours. hehe. One thing that you won't be able to get in Scotland is Tempoyak unless durians are available in Asian grocers. Our durian season is on full swing and I'm loving the aroma. hehe.

Now Durian really is the King of Fruit,once you have acquired the taste,there truly is no fruit like it,even the aroma,I find to be quite pleasant and fruity.I pity those people that can't get passed,what they find,the offensive smell they are missing out on something that is truly unique

Hi Jim
I see you have your head screwed on the right way Jim, i Love Taiping also thats why i keep in touch with this sight, I was stationed in Gosport with the REME for a few months and used to visit HMS DOLPHIN to take part in the Boxing
but i must say i never won a fight there. Submariners are a hard lot to beat.

I have always found Taiping to be a peaceful place,as the name implies,but also full of very friendly people.I have memories of a gentleman,whom I inquired of the whereabouts of a Mechanic from,I was having vehicle problems.He ran a Newsagents/Sundry shop,I think behind or close to,the Lakeview Hotel.H e went to the trouble of calling his son to take over the shop whilst he directed me all over town to find a Mechanic who would charge me a fair rate,he would accept nothing from me in return.So He and I went to lunch together the next day,and most enjoyable it was.gadzy Gosport may not be the end of the World but you can see it from there and Submariners really are a race of Lovers not Fighters,Cheers Mate

Aye jim, little did i know that a spell had been cast during my time in Taiping and even though ive travelled far, Taiping still holds its magical spell after all this time. the rolling rain clouds working there way over and down Maxwell hill bringing with it that freshness the rain leaves behind.

I had a taste of those lovely morsels today as I decided to take a drive to Taiping with my wife. It was raining very heavily when we went to the casual market but having satisfied my taste really made my day. Traffic in Taiping was excepionally heavy tho.
