The carnival started at 11.00 am and ended at 4.00 pm. Needless to say the crowd came in much earlier as everyone wanted their favorite dish. There are all kinds of food served here ranging from Sarawak Mee to Portugese Food (Malacca). Almost any kind of local food you can think of is here. And there is one particular item that caught my attention is the Vietnamese Popiah.
The weather was very unforgiving but everyone spirits were high expecting good sales as every sale is 100% contribution to PKIK fund raising.
Later it rain heavily and luckily it was towards 4.00pm and most of the stores had sold out and started packing. If you would like to donate to a good cause contact the above PKIK and be bless with bountiful happiness.
