I’ve been told by my friend, Eunice, that there’s a weekend pasar malam in Brinchang Town, Cameron Highlands. Which it is very popular that almost all the tourist will aim to pay a visit. The pasar malam only open for business during the weekend or school holidays. So if you come on weekdays, probably you don’t get to see all these interesting things.
In Miri, we do have Pasar Malam selling varieties of things, however, among 20 stalls, i bet 10 stalls are selling the same thing and they aren’t selling things that are extra ordinary than usual. But in Cameron, choices and prices are much more attractive.
This is one of the favourite stop. I bought Cactus for my 2 beloved friends in KL. At the same time, Alex bought me dozens of roses too! Haha, roses here are just too cheap! RM 10 I can get 2 dozens and they give you free some other flowers as well.
Not to forget, if you wanna eat cheap strawberry, then please get all in Pasar Malam. They said the strawberries here might be rejected or those overnight strawberries. So if you really want to buy, please check carefully and don’t bring it home. By the time you get home, its already rotten.
Vegetables are everywhere, they have sweet corns, cabbage, spinach and many many more. The sellers would claim that they plant at the backyard of their house in Cameron. That is just to assure you that the vege are fresh from Cameron. However, its not 100% true, the fact is lots of plants were import from Ipoh! Don’t believe? Then you go explore around Cameron, you hardly see other plantations other than TEA. Do correct me if I’m wrong.
I found my favorite here, Tomatoes!!!
I take it as tidbits. They are selling 4 boxes for RM10. These are cherry tomatoes, not so sour, just nice. In Miri I could hardly get such tomatoes, if yes, they are selling like RM10 per box!
The specialties from Cameron would be sweet potatoes, sweet corns and FRIED MUSHROOM! Most of the stalls are selling the tempura style mushrooms, vege and prawns. Price start from RM3. For the first few bites it could be very nice, but the more we eat, I think its a bit too oily.
Kenny Roger’s sister was here too. You check out the way they grilled the chicken. So professional la!
Surprisingly again, I saw lots of replica Crocs here. They are selling for RM20 per pair. During this trip to KL, I finally realize there’s so much crocs in the market that we could hardly differentiate the replica and the genuine. Food good sake, buy the replica one is enough! Its 5x cheaper than the original!
Of course quality does matter! Please be a smart consumer lo!
We enjoyed the shopping at the pasar malam. We’ve filled up the tummy with many many tempura mushrooms, strawberries and sweetcorns. Other than the flowers Alex bought for me, and I manage to grab some magnets as souvenirs.
Take a look at those fruits magnets, it looks so real especially the Langsat! These are what we call valued for money! Its only RM2.50 for one magnet! Hahaha… I believe after reading my post, you would love to visit the pasar malam too right?
Don’t worry, school holidays is coming, do plan your trip earlier!
