This is my second installment of a mini photo tour around Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown after my first post on it here. Although it was not a recipe as it usually is on Smoky Wok, I was glad that a lot of you found it interesting so here's more for you. Traipsing around Petaling Street in the afternoon was quite tiring with the sweltering dry heat we have been experiencing lately but I was still glad I went as I thought there are still a lot of interesting things and people to photograph - a departure from the usual clean and well-lit shopping malls that I uh frequent (not that I don't love shopping malls!) but photographically speaking, definitely not as 'interesting'.
The obligatory food shot, a 'typical' dim sum spread at the many cheaper Chinese stalls you can find in Kuala Lumpur, the dim sum shot here did not really taste good so I will not mention where this is from although seasoned Petaling Street diners may be able to tell?
A bustling food market
Inner entrance of the 'Kwan Tai' temple in Petaling Street
A carving on the walls of the temple depicting a Dragon
One of the two stone lions guarding the temple, many devotees believe stroking the lion's head will give you auspicious luck!
