Hello, happy Friday to everybody!

How had you been today? Hope you stay safe and healthy always.

This morning I and my family went to another wet market near my
living place. The wet market is called ‘Chong Boon Wet Market’ which’s one of
popular wet market in our neighbourhood area.

Today let me introduce you about this wet market!

Same as other wet market, the government has been limit the
access of the entry to be easy control the numbers of people who entering the
wet market. The entry of wet market have some safety officer to manage and
guide us from entering.

Compared to the previous wet market that I had
introduced to you all, the size of Chong Boon Wet Market is bigger, and the
space is widen.

As usual, we have to queue before enter the wet market.
There were few officers to monitor the numbers of people who entering the
market.

The
floor is marked with red line with 1 metre distancing. All the people have to
follow the red line marking distance to queue and buying the things.

But
in fact, it is hard to keep 1 metre social distancing with others in the wet
market, as everybody is moving around.

The
wet market have many stalls selling variety stuffs and products. For examples, fishes,
prawns, vegetables, fruits, meats, tofu, mushrooms, eggs, breads, cakes,
condiments, processing foods, preserved foods, drinks, flowers, potted plants, clothes,
shoes, kitchen stuffs, cleaning detergents, etc. Singapore government has variety supplier sources from
different countries to make sure the food and product supply is always sufficient
to the local demands.

We can found
variety vegetables and fruits in this Wet Market. Overall the prices of
vegetables and fruits here are cheaper if compared to supermarkets. Every
morning, the local residents especially elderly like to visit this wet market.
The wet market operation is mostly in morning only. It will be cleared and
closed in the afternoon.

Every weekend,
local residents especially housewife’s and family will come along to the wet
market to have breakfast and shop for groceries before went back home.

Our
‘new normal life’ is always wearing marks wherever we go, there are maximum 5
people can be sit together for dine in at food court and hawker center. Some of
seating in red-marking showing that ‘do not sit’.

This
morning, we enjoyed our favourite vegetarian meehun at hawker center next to
the wet market. We love this vegetarian meehun because it is super yummy and
selling at a reasonable price.

Before
home, we bought many vegetables and fruits to top up the stocks in our fridge.

This
is a busy morning view of the market place next to the wet market, the clothes
and shoes are selling at a cheaper and affordable price.

Hope you have a nice weekend. Enjoy your day!😊🙏🏻

Nice to see markets from different parts of the world thanks for sharing and you have a great weekend also @cherryng 🙂

This certainly a nice wet market! The aisle seemed generous enough to let several people by, except, of course, when people are trying to get by and others are in the way. It is such a tough situation.

That que line gets longer, every time I look at it. I have to say that it is worth the wait as the vegetable and fruits looked really nice. Everything looks fresh and nothing looks picked over. They look like they really take care of their store. I am guessing their turnover rate is high if they close after the morning. With cheaper prices and good service, who wouldn't want to go??

Honestly, I haven't gone out to eat since before COVID started. I prefer to eat at home and so I do. So many rules. Wear your mask, sanitize, foot bath in the Philippines, so many rules! You can even sit near others.

I like all the different little shops there, clothing to flowers! Gorgeous flowers! I want to thank you, cherryng for bringing to us such a wonderful post!! I loved it! Thank you so much for taking part in #MarketFriday! I am so pleased to see you here and I will admit that it is fun to go through these posts and have so many different cultural experiences. The amount of time and effort put into posting in this challenge is not a secret. One of the reasons I have so much appreciation to those that do.

There have been some really interesting ways that #MarketFrday has been presented, all of which adds all the more charm to the mixing bowl. The challenge points out our differences, but, then, it also shows many things our cultures share. When the day is done, it shows off how human we all are and how we basically all care about our families and others. I love the experience of it all. I appreciate the love and support given to #MarketFriday! Thank you! Truly! Your participation adds a piece of your world, and I have to say, people are interested in is seeing it. This entire challenge has opened up the world to me and so many others. Thank you again for being a part of all this! I hope you have a fabulous day! Hive on!!
