Deepavali is just two days away and Hindus are preparing to celebrate this auspicious day getting all the delicacies food, new clothes, ready before the big day. As a 1Malaysian, i wouldn’t miss celebrating this year Deepavali, although i am a Chinese. In Malaysia, places we can buy all those murukku and laddu is at Jalan Masjid India and Little India Brickfields.
To go to Jalan Masjid India, all you need is hop into a LRT train and stop at Masjid Jamek, walk to Leboh Ampang and you will see several stalls selling murrukku and laddu. I just bought 1 pack of Murrukku.
And to go to Little India in Brickfieds, you can either take the monorail to kl sentral or LRT train, there you can walk to Little India Brickfields. You will notice lots of lamps, beautiful arches along the street.
You can even try Indian’s Banana Leaf rice at Restaurant Sri Kortumalai Pillayar at brickfieds, just along Little India. After you finish eating your banana leaf rice, remember to fold the leaf in half to show you have finish your meal and it’s consider polite this way. Oh, order a glass of teh tarik too, super delicious!
