Gaslight Night Market

Today is the last day of the weekly summer night market (which starts late November and ends late February) at Queen Victoria Market. The Gaslight Night Market features crafts, food, entertainment and even on-site massages.

We had fun quickly browsing the products in each stall but went home empty-handed. It’s hard to enjoy shopping in 33 degrees heat rubbing elbows with other sweaty shoppers. Next year we’d go when the weather’s cooler.

In the Philippines, we display star-shaped lanterns like these (called parols) everywhere during Christmas. It’s nice to see them being sold here too (even though it’s a bit late or a little too early for Christmas). Click photo for more.
