Chinatown? or Indiatown?

Long time i have not been to Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur (KL),… used to walk at this place everyday.

My mum used to go to Chinatown once a year, the few days before the Chinese New Year.

Kuala Lumpur Chinatown sell the pirated items. Such as bags, shoes, tshirts, shorts, watches, glasses and etc.

For so long I have not been to Chinatown in KL, there are huge changes of this town.  Doesn’t look like Chinatown to me anymore but Indiatown or maybe another Little India in KL?  I think people do upgrade, the chinese bosses used to be the stall sellers, have hired Indians or other nationalities to work for them now.

If you walk along the Chinatown, seriously, majority of the sellers are Indians.  Do they have work permit?….I doubt they have work permit….

When the DBKL (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur) also known as Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) you will not able to see the pirated DVD/VCD sellers.  They have gone hiding!….At times the DBKL officers will come to check  the area and also stalls license.  Piracy restrictions only seen in this area or some Pasar Malam places in Petaling Jaya.    Not so Pasar Malam in KL…

Strange houses

When people is strange, their houses can be strange too.

While i was driving, i slowed down my car abruptly…. and took a close look at the double storey house located near the Jalan Klang Lama (Old Klang Road) – Kuala Lumpur.  Something extraordinary I have never seen.  SOOOOOO many lanterns!!!!

I pondered, maybe this owner supplies lanterns?  Or gotten these lanterns on very cheap sale!  Or promotion buy 1 get 100!???

Never seen such a thing... More lanterns than chinese temples.

Another strange thing seen today……

A KTV bar/pub called Cleopatra KTV (Bencoolen Street, Singapore)… has put lots of ‘heart’ to decorate their  premises ‘nicely and uniquely’ for 2009 Chinese New Year.

I’ve never seen so big red firecracker in my entire life….

Do you think its nice?  Hmm… people can be very creative and this owner is very creative that I don’t think its nice to see though.  Kinda scary to me…and it also tells that this owner plays loads of badminton games.. hahaha….

Bangsar Village

Been talking about Bangsar Village in the past blog issues… but never really have the chance to visit until this long holiday of Chinese New Year.

Previously was occupied by Hankyu Jaya.  Was closed down…. and the building was abandon for many years until the mall revamped and Bangsar Village came to existence in year 2004.  Click here for more info.  Then in year 2007, came Bangsar Village 2.  The two malls are interconnected with Skywalk bridge.  Bangsar Village website.
