I can't really remember what the uncle there told me, but I think it was built sometime in the mid-90s thereabouts, more or less. Plus or minus.
But I had never been to the Kenyalang Wet Market before. I know, it sounds pathetic.
So naturally, when I brought my students over for a sketching trip, I didn't really know whether it would meet our expectations.
I wasn't talking about the food of course. We were after something more visually simulating & aesthetically more interesting.
From the wet market, you can see the surrounding Kenyalang Park houses. If not for the recent ammendment in the land renewal rates, the owners would have lost their land titles.
And what you'd see here would have been something else instead. In place of these beautiful & colourful rooftops would be a white multi-million ringgit turn key project - Telekom University.
But for now, the battle has been won, & things will remain the same. For now.
This is one of the frequent fixtures at the market.
For some reason, the uncle repeatedly kept asking me to take a photo of the dog's teeth. I obliged of course.
Before I left, my wife managed to get me to buy a bunch of veges for dinner.
