So confusing wan. =_=
What I found out: Jonker street is not really Jonker Street - its name (now) is Jalan Hang Jebat.
(Sheesh - how different is that??)
Anyway, we ended our day trip by checking out the famous Jonker Street night market:
(The Market's Opening Hours: Fri to Sun and Public Holidays, 6pm to 12midnight)
Whilst some of shophouses in that area close early (boooo...), there are still quite a few left for you to browse through, as well as an array of market stalls in the street - selling anything from souveniers to bags to clothes (we even spotted a lingerie stall!):
There was also a stage at one end of the road where they regularly have performances (I think it was supposed to be some sort of singing and lion dance performance the night we were there, but we didn't stick around long enough to find out):
Of course, as with any other night market in Malaysia, there was a wide array of shops and stalls serving food.
(Anything from noodles to satay to biscuits, etc)
Unfortunately, we were all still kinda full from all the eating throughout the day.... but with the warm and humid weather, we couldn't resist trying out the ice cool sherbert from this stall, modestly named Perfect Ice:
There was quite a variety of fresh fruit flavours (priced around RM3? per cup, sorry no receipt!) and the friendly sherbert stall uncle explained that he makes them freshly everyday. He even told us we could mix and match flavours if we wanted:
(Since we were having trouble deciding which to choose)
Here's my lovely (crazy eyed) model Jo-lyn presenting our sherberts - Berry (the purpleish sherbet) and Lychee mixed with Passion Fruit (the orange sherbert):
Yummy. :) :)
Truthfully, the Berry sherbert was a little too sweet (I almost bounced off the walls later from a sugar high)... but the Lychee-Passionfruit was perfect (sweet against slightly sour) and they were both incredibly refreshing.
Obviously with such an array of different flavors (there's even a DURIAN sherbert - ewwww.....), there will be some that you like and some that you won't... Still, if I'm ever in the area again, this is definintely on my "To Eat" list - want to try out the other sherberts. :)
(Hmmm... if only he would come up with an alcoholic margarita sherbert... )
So, it's: Market stall selling a yummy array of fruity sherberts at affordable price BUT beware! some flavours may be too sweet.....
