We went to Jalgalchi Market on the last day of the Jalgalchi Festival 2011, which falls on a Sunday 16th Oct.
my 1st time at the biggest wet market in korea, busan!
and boy, am I impressed:
eew slimy octopus!
loads of fish!
pretty sight! but stinky too!
they were sunning these fishes:
somehow there is a huge blown-up balloon turtle:
I knew about the event where they want to make the world's biggest bibimbap. everyone gets a bowl of it free. so we went to queue up for this free lunch too!
very spicy for me, but it was nice:
so we moved on to the stalls. and came across this auntie selling grilled/bbq eel.
he is a famous sashimi chef who appeared on TV numerous times:
we came across this event, whereby u signup with 5000won, and get a chance to get into this waters to catch fish:
rais went to try and he caught one of them! (after a very long struggle, hahaha, but the onlookers were very enthusiastic in cheering this foreigner on!)
this is his catch!:
the eel we ordered:
and along the way back, I saw these abalone! like what the channel8 show back in singapore was talking about. its 10 abalone for S$30!
way back to the station, there are a row of petshops as we stand there and are bewildered by the puppies' cuteness again. and this dog is sooo unglam:
ok thats all for the day!
