Day 2 of Peranakan Festival, Kuala Trengganu.

Warning! Long posts ahead...last count 28 photos.

After a heavy lunch, it was time to become "ular"(snake) ..Zzzz till evening where weather not that hot and off we went to explore Chinatown where the main event for Peranakan Festival was being held.

Games booth, art booths and event booth selling fishes were put up at an empty car park area.  I wanted to play but Mamarazzi too cheapskate. RM1 to throw a ball? Hmm....Maybe Mamarazzi saw wrongly leh...maybe it's RM1 for 3 balls leh...but still she didn't let me play *sulk at a corner*

Then I spotted someone parked the "Wedding Chariot" at the sidewalk....Saw they used this for the Parade.

Maybe I can bring it home? Finder keepers right? Again thwarted by Mamarazzi. She said snap photos will do lah.

There was a Chinese Chess table set up. I wanted to play but Mamarazzi asked if I know all the words and rules.

Told her I know this is 馬 and this is 車. the horse fight with the chariot see who wins? vroom vroom bang bang!

Sulks! Kena scolding say too rough. 

Asked me to smile, I don't wanna smile liao...kena "forced" smile pulak. 

Went to early. Not many stalls opened yet. 

Saw one stall selling this "LALAT GAO" . It's some kind of sweet cakes. What a funny name. The first thing Mamarazzi thought of when she saw the word "Lalat" is "flies" in Malay language.

Next saw this Cendol Stall. So many people buying from her. Must be very nice leh. Mamarazzi gave me RM1.50 to buy this. Hmm.....she must be trying to "pujuk"(coax) me la coz I was sulking.

Wokay easily bribed. By the I look like the painting behind there...?

Huh? Wassup....why keep going into this and that alley? 

Mak Oi!!! Uncle Twilight Man says Mount Hua in Xian, Shaanxi have those Love Padlock thingy ...but here in K.T lagi terrer leh.... Got Love Padlock and Motorcycle/Bicycle Love leh... see! so big! even my whole head can go in leh!

Guess here is the place where I can "conteng" (Scribble) on the wall without being scolded leh. 

#13 this is where they sell the Love Padlock. RM10 each. Eh not that expensive leh. Usually one normal padlock already cost Rm5 to RM8 lo. This one they have to paint and decorate it leh.

Lelong lelong...who wants Silk Batik. RM50 a piece only. But not hand draw punya ya...Those hand draw punya is pricier. 

Eh more beca wor....can bring home or not? people waiting to "ride' this. Abandon project la

One more Alley....errr....can skip this one la...tired leh. 

Hungry...Can buy me this Nasi Dagang...don't want CILI ah.

Hmmm walk faster la.....hungry leh...and show gonna start soon.

#19 filming video. Not the first couple that we saw here. There were few  couples who took the opportunity to have their pre-wedding photo taken during the festival. 

Very very hot leh....nice to have a cooling cup of Soya Bean. 

Burp! what you mean "smile"? This is my "smiling" face. 

Can see my "ekor" (tail) going up? Phewitt! Got some Lenglui(pretty girls) standing in front of the temple selling flowers. Mamarazzi asked me to go and pose with them but me shy shy wor..... *blush*

Yay! The many empty seats ...can sit anywhere la. 

Aisay....Papa and Mamarazzi said still too early. Go have dinner first la

Went to restaurant nearby. Mamarazzi had Chicken Rice. Too bad the Chicken was undercooked. But the rice and soup taste good. 

Papa had fried bihun while me had Cantonese Fried Keoy Teow. Food taste okay la. 

At least Papa managed to have his Nasi Dagang. Said preferred the gravy to be thicker.

Finally.....wah....managed to get several seats at the back. 

Papa! Grandaunt!  Faster! The show is starting .....I reserved seats for you.

Some late comer came and stood in front of us. Blocking my view. First 2-3...the..4-5...the 9-10.....GRRR!!!....Papa told me to be brave and go tell them to find a seat.

Some listened to me and they promptly move away or squat down . 

But Mamarazzi really salute the old lady who sat behind of her. You know what happen? The old lady used her umbrella and POKED those who stood in front of her. Wakakakaka!   Great work granny!

The shows were impressive. There were traditional dances, kids performance, rappers, magic show and YoYo Champion from Taiwan even came to grace the show. 

We didn't wait for the show to finish. Too tired and hot already. Went back around 10pm plus I think. Next day is another fun filled day.


  1. You really know how to do a proper sulk! And don't tell mama, but you look very cute doing it! You must sulk all you can now, because when you grow up, cannot sulk anymore!! The Wedding Chariot is gorgeous!!! Do only the rich use it at weddings? Phil plays and teaches chess at school, he would love to play with you and teach. Drop by any time!

  24. Wow!! So many colourful and interesting photos by Nenek Kebayan. Anay pening to comments 28 comments as he always lost to Mamarazzi in spamming contests.

  25. #2 The Wedding Chariot is the best! Small Kucing will cycle next time and fetch his bride by himself. So you have started the training already.

  26. #3 Anay is expert in playing Chinese chess although I am a banana from English school. Let me teach you how to play. I even beat some old men playing under the trees in Taipei. Ahem! ~ show off~

  28. #11 - What Xian and KT? Got people hang locks in Malaysia?? I don't know why hundreds of thousands of padlocks are everywhere in the Mountains of China and Korea.

    1. New fad a relationship what lock also no use la....

  29. #14 The silk batik fabric is cheap at RM50. I wonder whether it's just the fabric or ready-to-wear dress? Kaldip got buy for Mamarazzi ka?

    1. Just fabric only. nah Mamarazzi lazy to go find tailor to make la...unless letchumi wanna make

  30. #15 - So many empty trishaws! You should fetch Papa Kaldip around and tour the city to see Ah Mois.

  31. #23 - I got goose bumps looking at the lighted stage and empty chairs like the recent HKG movie - Hungry Ghost Ritual.

    1. Choi! Choi! Choi! knock your head la.....seram la u ahhhhhhh

  32. #28 - Wow! So many traditional dances and variety shows to watch. This is my favourite past times to sit, relax and munch kuaci to watch! Ask Papa Kaldip buy a long zoom lense camera for Mamarazzi since her occupation is full time blogging!

  33. Even though you didn't get to play all the games you wanted, it still looks like you had a long, fun day.
