If you say you’ve never been to a pasar malam for the sole intention of getting just fried oreos, you’re lying. These artery-choking treats, which usually come in a pack of 6, are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. You can choose to put additional chocolate and caramel toppings too — but we bet you already know.

Once upon a time, we had to travel all the way to Thailand or go to Golden Mile for authentic Thai milk tea. But not anymore, as you can find this refreshing sweet drink at almost any night market now. If you’re lucky, you might even some versions with tapioca pearls!

No night market is complete without Taiwanese street food, and the pasar malams here are no exception. Common favourites are the Crispy Fried Chicken and Oyster Meesua, but they also have other variations of the loved poultry like Honey Chicken Chop and Salted Crispy Chicken. For vegetarians, you can find deep fried mushrooms as well as sweet potatoes.

I like to lift heavy things, eat to my heart's content and lie under the sun.
