I was invited to go to Geylang Bazaar with a friend who lives in Singapore. It was amazing, block after block of busy food stations, shopping and beautiful street lights. So much food to choose from it was hard to decide. Must try the spicy yogurt.

Geylang is a red light district in SG but you can just visit the place for sightseeing as it boasts colonial architecture. If you love history and architecture, you would love Geylang. You can google Geylang Adventures so that you can book a day trip around the area. You will learn a lot and you'll be much safer!

Ramadan observances by Muslims in Singapore covers the period from 6/June/2016 to 5/July/2016 Hari Raya Puasa falls on 6/July/2016, which is a national Public Holiday in Singapore.

The Bazaars that dots the Geylang Serai area boasts food, drinks, fashion apparels, fashion accessories, festive decorations, colorful blinking light sets, carpets, arts and crafts, toys, baking ingredients, cooking needs and much much more.

The Bazaars consist of individual stalls offering their wares, and indeed, services. House renovation consultant businesses are also present this year! Operated and manned by people of various creed, race, culture, age-group, gender for a multi-racial, mixed creed crowd of window shoppers and customers alike - the experience is loud, colourful, sometimes bewildering, oftentimes distracting, mostly crowded ... but always 'shiok',

This Bazaar Jam or Singapore's is truly its Ramadan Gem.

To top it up, there are the regular eateries and shops, including those at Joo Chiat Complex, Tanjong Katong Complex, City Plaza Shopping Mall, which addresses the Malay, Muslim market - that add to the vibrant and celebratory vibes.

Do join in the fun. Pick up some Hari Raya goodies - cookies, crackers, snacks.

This do happens only once a year. But it is truly a happening....one not to be missed.

Muslim fasting month, June 2016 is when Muslims (mainly the native Malays) abstain from food and drinks from dawn to dusk.

At the area (alight at Paya Lebar MRT station), walk towards Geylang Serai you will see HUGE bazaar selling many types of things such as carpets and food.

In the evening around 4pm onwards, many locals will look for food for their breaking of fast at sunset. Head there ard 6.30pm onwards atleast it is not hot. and more lively.
