Quite an amazing chance encounter to see this. Part of the procession entered the famous ‘snake alley’ section of the night market, (shown at the end). Fireworks in the street always attracts me – especially as these are no longer in most Australian states.
The restaurant that specializes in ‘just desserts’ was mentioned in an earlier blog entry.
I hope you will enjoy this HD video, my first posted. Images were with a Sony TX-9 camera.

This is the night market featured at the top (masthead) of this blog – that original picture was in 2003 with a 5 MP Sony digital, a just released camera.
Clicking the picture should enlarge it – also view the HD video of my Facebook friend selling his Turkish ice cream. The expression on his customers faces is priceless. Good entertainment value with an equally good product.
About 20% (or more) of the fish fillet did not appear in the soup – even although the whole fish was paid for. The dose of MSG an extra penalty not encountered during recent years. I won’t fall for this trick so easily again.
The fish is a Lunar-tail trout, an exotic species of Coral Trout rarely seen by divers on the Great Barrier Reef these days. Perhaps it was karma for ordering a rare fish?
In all night markets are these stands that sell oyster ‘pancake’ – except the flour mixture turns into a clear glue instead of a flour pancake. Popular with locals but not for me. Bus loads of overseas Chinese tourists packed the street.
