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.

MERDEKA BEB! MERDEKA!!! at Central Market Annexe - 31.08.07 / Part Two

So, have you figure out the hottest indie kid accessory yet? It's not the Yasser Arafat scarf, nor Forever 21 sunglasses, but a digital single lens reflex camera, better known as a DSLR. Paired with a Windows-operated computer and a pirated copy of Photoshop, one can come up with masterpieces suitable for their Myspace or deviantart galleries. These pictures were all taken in a row, within four minutes, and I am sure there were more that I have miss.









You might recognise the person in the green t-shirt; he's Paan from KLCC - 14.07.07.


For some reason I didn't see any girls with their DSLRs. Maybe DSLRs are more of an accessory for men. Do you know what's popular among the indie girls?

MERDEKA BEB! MERDEKA!!! at Central Market Annexe - 31.08.07

Central Market Annexe celebrated Independence Day by throwing a "gig + street fashion show + bazaar". The free gig started at three p.m. and was supposed to go on until eleven at night, but was cut short at around 6.30 p.m. due to people who were complaining that it was "too noisy". Here are some looks of the attendees...

This man had nice glasses; if only he wore an outfit to go with it.

Happy Merdeka, Malaysians!

The second portion of this post will be published soon, featuring the hottest indie kid accessory of the moment [try to guess what it is].
