I was on my way to work this morning and as usual I'd tune on to Red FM.
The Red FM Breakfast announcers have always been Lil Kev and Sarimah, unfortunately this morning I guess Lil Kev wasn't around and Sarimah was alone.

However, she wasn't alone, literally. There were two invited guests who are volunteers from a Malaysian bazaar food portal website catered specially for the fasting month for residents in the Klang Valley.

It was quite interesting you know. (So obviously that explains why I'd prefer listening to Red FM).

And so, back to the interview session in the studio. These two volunteers (I can't recall their names, but one was a female and the other was a male). They are speaking on behalf of this local website which basically tells you what are the best "Pasar Ramadhan" spots for you to visit to get your favourite local Malaysian delicacies.

Its called ParamKL.

PARAM is the abbreviation for PAsar + RAMadhan.
*Pasar = market/bazaar

PARAM is an annual event which takes place through out Malaysia, during the fasting month of Ramadhan. Muslims and non-Muslims will tend to swarm or mob these PARAMs and they could actually get just about ANYTHING. Yes, I mean ANYTHING and EVERYTHING (food, especially) for breaking fast.
The main reason of them flocking these PARAMs is because the food sold are considerably cheap and the wide varieties they have will always tempt you to buy at least something.
(even if you do not have any intention or whatsoever to get anything, trust me, YOU WILL!)

Who do ParamKL cater? (got this from their website)

There are two situations:

  • Happening Hock Lei is going to a PARAM and doesn’t know which are the stalls that sells the good stuff,
  • Pretty Patimah is craving for ayam percik and wants to know which PARAM in town sells the best of that.

So, yeah. This website basically tells you what is the best food to get at a particular PARAM or which PARAM to get the food you are craving for.

On the other hand, I think, this website also helps foreigners to get to know more on the favourite local Malaysian delicacies.

So, why not give it a try?!
