St. James Power Station, Singapore - 15.12.07

I could have shot more people at the FashBash event, but it was too dark, and the heavy rain dampened my mood.

James was doing some work on his 17-inch PowerBook [I think]. He confesses that he has been a Mac user all his life. He's here in KL to "sort of" get his laptop fixed, and will return to his fruit farm in Lombok, Indonesia soon. He likes to eat "ikan" [fish] and wants to travel all over the world.

If you have watched movies like Mukhsin and Puaka Tebing Biru, you must have noticed Mislina. She likes to eat Nasi Lemak from a stall in Desa Pandan. One day, she wants to end up in Jamaica.

I Got Shot In The City will be taking a break until mid December, 2007. I am working on an exciting assignment which I will tell the whole world once it is completed. An advice to all KL dwellers - wear your best clothes!

Borders, The Curve - 24.11.07

Layering in tropical weather? You can count on the Quah brothers. What Will thinks about the illegal rally that is a hot topic in this country: "I am up for it; the government should listen to the people". When asked about his favourite Malaysian food, he digs the Nasi Kandar served at Lotus, near Hotel Nikko. Patrick agrees to his brother, saying that the people should have more freedom. He also likes to eat Curry Laksa.

TESCO, Mutiara Damansara - 19.11.07

Apologies to Amirul Helmy, your picture didn't turn out well.

Bukit Bintang - 04.11.07

These boys were spotted shopping at an independent boutique called dolls store. You might not know this, but Harry LOVES to eat Ayam Masak Manis and Tom Yam at Santai, TTDI. Try it!

Madam Maggie Tan, however, has a more affluent taste. She frequents Shangri-La Hotel to dine at Zipangu and Shang Palace. By the way, her cobalt-blue trousers were tailored. She was grateful to have her picture taken because "it makes me feel like I am beautiful, even though I am old".

Borders, The Curve - 01.11.07

Zara was the only person at Starbucks who's using a Mac (naturally they are more interesting to photograph than PC users). She digs Japanese artists like Chio Aoshima and Aya Kato. She was also wishing for some cheesy nachos.

Adrien would love to get a top hat to complete his outfit, while Alvin wants a leather jacket.

Pavilion, Bukit Bintang - 22.09.07

Pavilion is a new development in Bukit Bintang, which comprises service apartments, 6-star condominiums, shopping centre and all sorts of others. The mall had its soft opening on the 20th, and the shops you can expect to find here are Club Monaco, Hermes, Jean Paul Gaultier, Versace, Marc By Marc Jacobs, along with other brands we are already familiar with. Fortunately, this attracted the better-dressed folks in KL.

Their favourite Malaysian food is Nasi Lemak.

These guys are hairstylists at SALONESPRIT, and come from Singapore. They love to eat Hokkien Mee.

Epicentre is a store selling Apple products and accessories. This guy has a FREITAG in his right hand, while his left hand is holding a Mandarina Duck shopping bag.

Zulkifli is a graffiti artist, belonging to a group called The Super Sunday. His favourite Malay dish is Asam Pedas and thinks that ikan merah is the best fish to use for the dish.

Section 14, PJ - 12.09.07

The Section 14 commercial centre is getting busier and more congested by the year, with the popular digital mall and classy Jaya 33 complex sprouting within a year. I do most of my grocery-shopping at Cold Storage, a supermarket that has been at Jaya since the first day of its existence, before I was born. Here are some intriguing shots.

I am not too keen on long-sleeved shirts and blazers and ties worn in tropical climate, but fashion and uniforms worn here are rarely about function.

Check out that lady's self-made batik dress. She claims to own several of them, and expressed her regret wearing the least-appealing dress today.

Bangsar Baru - 04.09.07

This area in Bangsar was well-known for its nightlife, perhaps 5 years ago, but now it is turning into a shopping hub where you can find affordable fashion in shophouses on Jalan Telawi, or upscale brands at Bangsar Village II.
