This week, we visited a popular hotspot for our Muslim friends in Singapore, where the festivity carries on into the late hours of the night: the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar!
The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar is opened for the whole period of Ramadan (26th May to 24th June this year); it comes alive especially at night, when the Muslims break fast and have their iftar (evening meal). The pasar malam (meaning night market) is packed to the brim with food and drink stalls and other shops selling Hari Raya- related items (over a thousand stalls!), and this gave us a chance to immerse in this festive celebration. Around the pasar malam, there were beautiful light decorations and banners, and so this gave us the chance to revisit our light photography skills and explore Geylang Serai! To this end, we brought along the SLR 680SE and the Petzval Lens to use with our Fujifilm XT-10!
Having had our fill of food and drink, we used our Petzval Lens to great effect:
Here are the some of the scanned photos we have taken with the Polaroid SLR 680SE, which you can check out right below:
As with any event, we love to capture the happenings and activities that is going on. While it was (unsurprisingly) warm for a night in Singapore, the food and beverages available will be sure to keep visitors well-fed and satisfied. Let us know how you commemorated Ramadan!
Till next time,
