In Kuala Besut there is a weekly market every Friday from about 8.00am to 12.oo noon. It is where kampung folks as well as small-time traders ply their trade at the provided space. The goods range from agricultural produce, food as well as clothes and household items. But what is more interesting about this market is the majority of the traders is ladies. Despite their conservative lifestyle and well-entrenched tradition associated with ladies on the east-coast of Malaysia, they are well emancipated, very enterprising and financially independant.
Who says muslim ladies are inhibited?
