For those of you who aren't familiar with this part of the world, Malaysia is a country that includes a peninsula connected to South-East Asia (south of Thailand), as well as part of the island of Borneo. Langkawi is a small island just south of Phuket. Predominantly a muslim nation, Malaysia has three main cultural / ethnic groups, mainly Malay, Chinese and Indian, making for an diverse tapestry of local life! Here close to the Thai border there is a lot of Thai influence as well.
Anyway, the other day Mom and I went up to the Friday market (because it happens once every Friday!) and I used my Leme Cam app (it's free!) to take some snapshots.
|The Friday market is the place to be after evening prayer on Fridays!|
|Fresh, local (mostly) fruits and veg - yum!|
|Malaysian tofu delicacies|
|Girls being girls...|
|The beautiful new mosque around the corner|
