Chinatown Tips (19)

Petaling Street Markets: Petaling Street Markets - China Town

This is a real experience.

The first night we were in KL we went straight to the markets.

It was a shoppers heaven with all the fake brands such as gucci, levi, versace...... not to mention the hundreds of hand bags, wallets, t-shirts and watches. The array of dvds for only 2 dollars aud.

I think i would have brought everything but a part of me had to come down to reality as it is so easy to go nuts.

You can bargain at the markets which made everything more fun and interesting although to the shop vendors this is their income and it was very hard to bargain too much, however it was still cheap.

There were even designer suitcase's for those who brought too much in KL.

Next time i come to KL i will definately return to China Town

Chinatown: Inside Chinatown...

While browsing through the stuffs in life that you fancy buying, make sure your wallets & handbags are intact to your body ! I personally never heard of bag snatchers in this area but people are walking close to one another & sometimes like trafiic jams in KL itself, it's quite annoying ! Though I like it this way...because I could yell at people to just walk on if they stop for a while (sometimes minutes...) if they bump into long lost friends & fancy some chatting instead...in the middle of 'human traffics'...

Chinatown: End Of Chinatown...

The photo was taken at the last end of Chinatown with Bargaining Stalls.
I owe some parts of my life to Chinatown ! I bought many things which normally are not easily available in Malaysia in Chinatown.
All those porn VCDs from France, Spain, Germany, where I learned so much of dirty words & everyday conversations in those countries, in Chinatown !
Even UNCENSORED movies like Beautiful Life, Cinema Paradiso, Malena, Caligula, Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Blue Lagoon, Blair Witch, ETC...I got from Chinatown ! I got Matrix Revolution on VCD, on the same day the movie was shown in the USA !
I bought all those T-Shirts that I gave to friends when I travel from Chinatown !
I brought friends to sample some local stall foods in Chinatown...lots of things in life for me, started in Chinatown.
Slowly, the 'pirated' stuffs are decreasing in Chinatown...but ask around, you might get what you look for in here...

Chinatown: Eating Out...

Now let's take a look of some eating restaurants around Chinatown. There are many to choose from. Mostly Chinese cuisines, from cheap to distortedly expensive plates could be found here. Choose wisely.
The layouts are simple; Set up tables & chairs in front on the restaurants, blocking traffics nevermind.
If you feel that you don't want to be disturbed (cars honing at you, motorcycles side mirrors bump into your head/back & such like...) while chewing those meatballs, get a seat inside the restaurants...
Just enjoy the foods & the sights around you.

Chinatown: Brightly Lit...

Chinatown is a brightly lit area with people hording this area to buy something & to eat something.
You could seep into the back alleys where rats, cockroaches, lizards, frogs ETC have their dwellings in here as well !
Sometimes, we could be mistaken a rat as a cat ! That's how BIG some rats here are ! They eat good (leftover) foods anyway...

Chinatown: The Chinatown in KL !...

Slowly, I walked to Chinatown. A busy area where people & vehicles 'jam' each other out.
On the photo, try to challenge yourself crossing the road with all those heavy vehicles or you could take the overhead bridge which is better, of course...

Chinatown: Let's Go In The Chinatown, Shall We ?...

Inside Chinatown, it's busy with people, that's for sure ! Sellers & buyers alike...If you are in Kuala Lumpur, which I would prefer to call KL; A VISIT to the Chinatown is A MUST !
You could see all the items that Malaysians, even tourists love to buy.
This area is full of stalls, most are 'pirated' stuffs (not originals) with good values (if not great...) & at very very affordable prices !
BARGAIN IS A MUST !

Chinatown: Can We Actually Bargain...

can we actually bargain on eating ?...We could, if don't have face ! The way the locals put it, meaning if you are not shy or you are beginning to be starving to death, then bargain for the foods !
Anyway, look at the menus if they are available or ask how much is one plate of that crab meat, with sauce.
You can ask if you could get beer as well; Normally at Chinese restaurants, you can easily get beers, of all kinds.
Western wines on the otherhand, are not really served here but you could try Chinese wines...

Chinatown: Inside Chinatown...

This is a Pagoda stalls that I managed to capture...
In the Chinatown or rather walking through the area, you could see stalls lined up on the left & right as you walking through.
Whereas behind these stalls, there are shops also, with more stuffs to browse through & BARGAIN for.
On that night, I wanted to but a tripod, thought I would have one for my night photos.
I asked for USD 7 for a long tripod, but was told that I couldn't get it less than USD 12 anywhere in Central Market ! I walked off...
The original price of the tripod is actually USD 24, if you buy at 'high-end' establishments...
You have a choice in bargaining of course, put your prices down if they want to accept, take it right away, if they don't you could either move to some other stalls.
Be reasonable of course when putting prices; There are certain things that you could never get for less than certain prices in this world !
I ended up NOT buying anything, I could wait I guess...
