  China town in Surabaya
by Hui-Hui

Surabaya gathers a lot of Chinese. The city government arranges this area specially for Chinese. In the evening it becomes a night market where vendors sell satay, fried rice, fried noodles and little fancy stuffs from China. Compared to night market in Taiwan, it's really a small one but it recalled me the memory when I went to some nightmarkets at countryside in childhood... By the way, kya kya means "wandering around " in the dialect from the southern part of Fukien Province (Taiwanese as well).
