Huadu Night Market

A couple of nights ago we went to check the Night Market, somewhere in Huadu district, not far from where we live.

Night Market

The first part that we passed were the clothing market, rows after rows of clothing at super cheap price. Lil A managed to walk (read: pull on Daddy’s hand like he’s a sleigh dog!) for a little bit until we decided its getting way too crowded from him to be walking.

We crossed the street to find more street stalls that sells clothes, mostly underwear, shoes, bags even down to knockoffs suitcases. We then turned right to see a more traditional part of the market.

Fruit stalls offer many of delicious looking mandarin oranges to big fresh looking apples.



Then there were the Muslim Chinese seller (you can tell from their Muslim hats and clothes) what’s interesting is they doesn’t really look very Chinese to my opinion, their complexion are slightly darker than most Chinese  and they mostly sells peanuts, walnuts, all kinds of nuts really. But there was a tiny stall that sells some kind of ‘satay’ (BBQ beef cut very thinly on a skewer) with traditional bread. JR bought some and they were delicious.

It’s really interesting to see so many different colors of the market. They have just about everything you want. From knockoffs wrist watches, all kinds of pickles you could possibly imagine, snacks, foods, down to fresh vegetables to a hair salon. What amused me was when I saw two tables selling cigarettes. No not the package kind but more like a ‘refill’ kinds. That’s interesting!

Lil’ A who didn’t take his nap started throwing a fit because he wanted to ride the bus and was screaming his head off “Naik bus! Naik bus” (naik= Indonesian for ride). Enough said he drew some crowds of people around him. They are all started talking in Chinese and smiling at him. From what JR could understand he said those people say “He’s so mad!” LOL!

We didn’t really stay too long at the market but it was a fun experience. Oh and I just realized that in this part of town, McDonald’s is not spell with the original English name but it’s all in Chinese and so does Pizza Hut but the signs are the same.
