Pasar Minggu Satok Kuching
Just mention Pasar Minggu (Sunday Market) at Satok Kuching, and almost everybody would know the place, including foreigners. This is the place where the famous ikan terubok masin is available and this is the place where i would frequent during the weekends if i m not busy and so are other hundreds of other people. This spot is also a tourist attraction. But what irks me about the place is the way the majority of the vendors who sell their kuih- muih (local cakes and other delicacies) that are not covered at all times. Apparently, the word 'hygiene' is far from their minds as i have noticed that years after years, the situation is still the same. It seems that the public who purchased them also do not mind at all, whether the food are covered or not, as by the end of the day, the vendors are laughing all the way to the banks! Just imagine the large crowd out there, some who might be coughing, sneezing, and the dust, the smoke and other unseen pollutant including the flies that settled on the kuih- muih that are waiting to be consumed by the buyers. Hopefully the authority will check on this problem including other places too, which i noticed are also practising the same style of selling their kuih muih.
