Southeast Asian Night Market (16th August 2008)

The Southeast Asian Night Market was a free event this week held at the TSB Bank Arena. It was a cultural and food event where many food and souvenir stalls were set up in the venue, representing the 9 different Southeast Asian countries. Ken and I decided to check it out this afternoon before our coffee session and the place was packed with lots of people, sound and smell! We did a loop around to see what was available - there were food like laksa, satay, Vietnamese rice rolls, Thai red curry, sweet desserts and drinks, and items for purchase such as batik, Thai silk and ornaments for the home. There were even performances from the various countries on stage at different times. One of our friends, Naz, was performing in the evening but we had other plans for the night so couldn't watch her performance.

Ken and I didn't end up buying anything at the market but instead went back to Latitude 41 Cafe and Bar for coffee and watch the hoards of people queuing up outside the event centre. The line was ridiculously long and it stopped moving at some point - obviously the event centre was too pack to fit more people! Photos taken at the market:
