I was watching our Malaysian pair (women’s double) leading 10-6 against Denmark in the Sudirman Cup. Then, I went to bathe cuz girls play not exciting. And they lost the first match! I switched channels but took a peek half an hour later. In the second match, they were already trailing 13-20! Better to turn off tv and blog about Food And Fruit Fiesta held at Sg Nibong Pesta site.
Jian and I reached at about 7.20pm. Our target – free flow of jus pala (nutmeg juice). It was drizzling. Hence, no pala or any shadow of a kepala giving free juice. Duped.
There are many booths displaying their products.. fresh, cooked or packed. If you missed out Hari Raya, you can buy rendang Tok, lemang, ketupat and serunding.

Chilli sauce for dipping. Or buy 10 and use as bowling pins.
Ah, yes.. nested in the middle is this food court. We tried the satay tulang (RM1 per stick) which holds true to the name. The bone is barbequed together with the chicken meat, hence the aroma is captivating to the 2 unsuspecting victims. The vendor claimed that it is the only stall which sells satay tulang. But it is bad, really bad. So much bones in the meat that it impaired my eating ability.
Public response isn’t that good.
Three probable factors – poor publicity, rain, unattractive atmosphere.
As the rain become heavier, we ran into a hall where a cooking competition has just ended.
This looks scrumptious. In fact, the only plate which looks edible ;) Oh yeah, the chefs were made compulsory to use “Pacific West Fish Fillet” packs. No Ayamas please.
We stayed for Individual Vegetables Carving Competition. It’s fun for me, in a strange way, like watching paint dry on a wall.
1st prize winner – Paradise of Farmer
2nd prize winner
3rd prize winner – The Colour of Dreams
Losers whom I think should have won.
So cute and almost edible!
The work of this carving is very delicate. And this spot smells the nicest!
We love the air-conditioned hall so much, we stayed for the next event. Vietnamese springroll demonstration by a gorgeous master chef who teaches in KDU. And free sampling.
Assorted greens, tofu and shrimps wrapped in rice paper for dipping into sweet and sour condiment – for the health freak in you!
