Here, they have all the rice from almost every district in Kelantan. All packed in little packets & grouped according to district of origin.

Pretty cool presentation, but be fast. The packets practically fly out the window basket.

Grabbed the last packet there was before taking this photo. Empty basket must mean this rice is popular, therefore it must be good.

Next, off to do some sightseeing at the following temples:
