Just a old photo taken out of storage. The Batu Pahat market.
Whenever we come here with mum, a few vendors will shout, “lao shi, yao mai chai ma?” (Teacher, any vegetables for you today?). Mum taught in Chinese High School long long ago, and some of the veg vendors were her former students.
This is a picture of the market with the iconic Clock Tower. Sadly it’s not working anymore. Even the clock hands have been taken down. This place really needs a super overhaul. But it has its charms I guess, to many who have been there since they were young.
Maybe Kevv would like to restore the clock tower too :-p
Anyone knows when this Pasar Besar was built?
