At times, the coordinates on the GPS did not lead us to our destination and we were on a wild goose chase, making multiple u-turns and detours. That did not dampen our determination. With an unfruitful drive to Nong Chik, we changed our route and tried our luck at Tmn Cempaka.
We knew we were on the right track when we spotted the road closure sign. Hubby managed to find a parking lot at Lorong Cempaka (Flat Unit 15).
As it was pouring, I wasn't able to take many photos. We walked along the street, holding on to our brollies. Probably due to the downpour, many stalls were not opened or ready.
The night market stretches along Lorong Cempaka from Flat Unit 15 to Unit 21. Despite the rainfall, residents came down or drove by to buy some food back.
The uniqueness of Tmn Cempaka Night Market is most of the stalls are operated by Malays.You can find many local delicacies and Malay kueh.
We also bought some Kueh Dadar and corn to eat along the way. Kudos to our kiddos for braving through the rain and taking the stroll with us. :)
