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…
