I found this lovely piece of red batik in one of the local open-air markets for RM19 (around £4).
Here are 2 beautiful pieces of silk - this was a little more expensive at RM168 (around £50) but I should have enough to make two silk tops so I am happy with that.
The street we were shopping in had lots and lots of shops all selling silk, and cotton etc. To see the bales of fabrics all sitting on the shop floor of this shop was very amusing.
KL is an amazing vibrant country - shopping is quite an experience. Of course I bought lots of other items such as reading glasses, some long distance glasses (now much needed) sunglasses and even had my eyes tested and ordered some tinted varifocal glasses too.
That is about all the time I have for shopping - I have to go back and collect my glasses but am really happy with all my purchases.
Best get on with some work now. More later.......................
