Usually found only during Raya Period, Lemang is traditionally cook / prepared in open air stalls, It is difficult to prepare well as the heat of the fire, frequent turning of the bamboo to prevent the rice from being burnt, and other factors come into play during the cooking, as such it is usually prepared by a master lemang specialist as a communal project in kampongs (village)or sold on the road side in towns and city.

- Eating moon cakes outside under the moon
- Putting pomelo rinds on one's head
- Carrying brightly lit lanterns
- Burning incense in reverence to deities including Chang’e
- Planting Mid-Autumn trees
- Lighting lanterns on towers
- Fire Dragon Dances
Well to me a Malaysian Urban boy , my memories of the Mid Autumn festivals is eating the Mooncake at home, and running around the house compound with lanterns. Mooncake in those days come in a few verities, Lotus Seed, Red Bean etc, now a days a staggering verities are available such as tiramisu, cheese cake, and even BBQ Chicken with yam.
This year staying in a country side housing estate, the local resident association organize a big dinner as well as a procession of lanterns, I found this out by accident due to the Music blaring out at high volume. The Residents started to gather at the central padang (field) at around 6.30, the children were given paper lanterns with candles, at around 7pm they lighted the candles and escorted by a few 4 wheel drives, they walk around the Housing area, returning to the padang at around 7.30pm, where by they have their dinner and were entertain by music performance, and lucky draw were held till around 10pm.
After staying here for close to a year nor my immediate neighbor (3 years) , I nor my neighbor still have no contact with the local resident association, nor are we in any way inform of the goings on, the functions etc. It is because we are the “New” guys in town? We am not interested in the resident association going on?
Yes, I admit that I do not make the effort to look for this ppls, and that I am rarely at home as I work during week ends and in the evenings but my wife is at home, my daughter attend the neighborhood vernacular school.
Information on the going on can be given out via a banner or buy flyers distrituted. Or is the resident association just for a group of 4 wheel owners?

Now adays, the non muslim will also descend on to the Pasar Ramadhan to purchase the traditional malay dishes to have with their dinner.
Stall selling Nasi Ayam
In general the price are very reasonable, in fact much cheaper then the usual stalls or restaurants, this lead to more customers dropping by..
More Ikan Bakar
The Pasar Ramadhan where I stay at the country side feature traditional Malay delicacy only. This year the mood seem to be dampen. This may be due to the recent sprat of price increase to the basic food stuffs. In particular, there was only one stall selling ayam percik, and one stall selling fried chicken.
At a Pasar Ramadhan, you will usually find stalls selling Malaysian Style Burgers, Murtabak, Ayam Percik, Fried Chicken along with Fish Balls etc, Rice Stalls selling currys, Chicken Rice or rather Nasi Ayam, Malay Kuih, Noodles in a Spice Herbal Soup (Soto) Ikan Bakar, etc
If you are a tourist do try out the food and wounder around the Street Pasar to get a feel of the Fasting Month. For us malaysians, this is a month of Happy Eating.
