Flea Market @ The Curve

Last saturday, I went to the flea market at The Curve to get myself some accesories to match with my cheong sam before going to Kang's birthday. That will be my first time to actually walk around the flea market stall by stall. To my surprise, there's alot of accesories selling at very reasonable price. For eg. 3 pairs of earrings can be get with just RM1o! Those are the fixed price items but you can have a good bargain in getting other stuffs where price tag was not shown. I just can't escape but to spend money when cheap deals are all over the flea market. Sigh, my plan to not spend so much is always a failure one.

I met my secondary classmate there who was helping out his sis. Have not met him since we've graduated from secondary school. Took some snapshots with him and was able to take snapshot of the stalls with his help as the management there does not allow photo shooting unless you're a reporter.

Flea Market are mushrooming and has become part of the city culture in Klang Valley. Almost every shopping complex and residential area in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya and Shah Alam has one.

The first flea market was hosted by Amcorp Mall and it is still the best place to get yourself some vintage clothes, antiques, records, collectibles, home-made food, old and new toys as well as some interesting items.
