Sweet Memories of Seremban

I went with Joe to visit his grandpa in Seremban today. Joe’s my pal whom I hang out with in Malaysia a lot.

Apparently in Seremban, there’s lots to see, eat and experience – even in a sleepy town like Seremban. We went to the Seremban Central Market and had some beef noodles. It was the dry, sauce kind and was quite good even though Joe complained that the fellas had reduced the quantum of the materials but maintain same price.

Yeah, the market’s interesting, much like the markets anywhere in Asia, for instance, Bangkok or Vietnam. Packed with people and goods. Cheap and nice, if you know what I mean.

After that we had a look at the wet market, watching people buying vegetables and stuff. Most Malaysians won’t bother about these places but I enjoy taking photos of these places because you really get to feel the pulse of the place if you know what I mean.

I took some photos of this cool looking Indian temple and this picturesque mosque, which is located near the Parkson Grand mall in Seremban. It was very nice.

Later we visited his grandpa (aged 98) who is pretty fit for his age. Though partially blind and totally deaf, we communicated via sign language and written pieces of paper. It was touching and very nice to see Joe reminisce his life with his aunt and grandpa and watch his relatives all interact. Pretty much like a madhouse if you ask me.

Yeah, nice place – Seremban!
