The leadup to the coming festive season saw the mall rather packed today during lunch time. People were buying all sorts of things including packaged cookies! I was quite surprised to see them buying that as I thought some of the Malays were still quite traditional and would either make their own cookies for Raya or get them from private bakers who usually sold their wares through word of mouth. I've tasted those prepacked cookies before and some of them are quite bad. However, some can be actually quite nice and I guess if you aren't fussy, they save lots of time, especially if you're working.
