Photoessay: A Ramadhan food bazaar

I’m not a big fan of the food bazaars: expensive, crowded, too sweet/salty/bland food, unhygienic. But i do appreciate their sociocultural significance to the Malaysian people. It’s a gathering place, a melting pot over the basest of human needs — food. Every type of person is to be found, every creed, every take, every ambition. It’s something to look forward to, something to anticipate, an eager feast of not just the body, but of lust and the soul.
