One of the things I missed about Kuala Lumpur is the night bazaars. The ones I know of are in Kota Damansara, Cheras and Danau Kota.
Rows after rows of neatly lined tents where you could find traders selling t-shirts, jeans, shoes, handbags, table runners and carpets, just to name a few. Business starts from 8pm untill 5am.
Yupp. KL'lites don't sleep that much. I think many are insomniac. That's why there are many restaurants which are open 24hrs.
Together with a friend, I went to the bazaar in Danau Kota on the night of 27th Ramadhan. Or shall I say the morning of 28th Ramadhan because I was there at 2 am.
The reason we went there in the wee hours was to avoid the crowd. Apparently thousands others did the same thing too. And the result... a truly congested night bazaar. Moving around was almost impossible.
This soaking-your-feet-in-the fish-pond thing is a craze in KL. However, there's a spa in Jakarta where you can dip your whole body in. "Why settle with only feet when you can offer other parts of the body to the fish" was what they said.
Nevertheless, we braved ourselves through the crowd. Looking for nothing in particular. It was fun though. Observing people going about doing their Lebaran shopping spree.
In the end, none of us bought anything. But the experience was enough to entertain us.
