The Central Market....

Just take a pause and think!, when was the last time you visits those places of interest in and around your city. Well I believe like me it must have been quite a while. Like me you most probably just kept postponing the visit from day to day. Eventually months passes and than the years. So on one fine day in May I decided that I had to make the visit. On that beautiful morning I drove to the KLCC and parked my car there, took the LRT and got myself to the Central Market. A great place for tourists where you could find many things of interest. Get to meet interesting people and the goods they trade.

Well, As I walk in the huge space that made the market, I just take its easy and wonder and enjoy the beauty of the place, so colorful in its deco and the display of goods that looking at its alone would make your visit an enjoyable and a wonderful one. There are so much goods, the works of arts on display for sale everywhere you look. There are eateries of many kind to feast your eyes and get you hungry and what else Malaysian do. Makanlah!!!!.[enjoy eating]. Indeed a kaleidoscopes of the wonder of the arts works of those great artist that would always add color to our already colorful world. As I browse along, I took as many shots of those shops with their colorful display of goods, and am sharing those images with all to enjoy. Feel free to use it in your blogs if you like those images. As much as I had enjoyed taking those images, sharing it with all is a kind of happiness as well. Friends not everyone could made the visit there and I hope these images would give some ideas of what one could expect at the place we call the Central Market.

This Central Market has a history of its own, for it was once a wet market where they sell fish, meat and the vegetables and it was really a place that smell fishy. Now it is no more after an entrepreneur decided to turn his idea into reality and saved this historical building from been demolished. Well thanks to the farsightedness of that entrepreneur, we now have a great place we call the Pasar Seni or the Central Market, right in the heart of our city. I had a great time there and if you had not been there do try to make a visit. I am sure you would enjoy your visit to this arts centre of a sort. Have a nice day.

Before my office moved to Putrajaya at the end of 2004, I was working in Bangunan Bank Pertanian = Menara Patriot, which is very near to Central Market. I am not the kind who likes to leave the office during lunch hour, but once in a while if I ever go to CM, I can get carried away browsing at the art dispaly, decor, etc that can be found at CM.

damelehrer, thanks for the visit and the comments. Well the CM is a gem in our city, a place where you could browse all day long and enjoy, care less about the world. I believe tourist love this place. When I play tourist from time to time in foreign land, it is a place like this that I love to go and buy souvenir to take home. Well for now, for me it is a great place to take friends who come to visit KL. Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus
It used to be a wet market. I used to be my landmark when I first started working in KL. How time flies and what development can do to places like the former pasar.
These days whenever I have invites to weddings or birthdays, I head to CM to look for the presents.
There's this Malay shop that sells items made of cast iron. I love the candle holders. I bought a few as gifts for friends.
Also, the Kopitiam. After a few hours of browsing (and shopping), I lepak there for the iced coffee and toast.
Have a good weekend.

Fauziah, thanks for the visit and those informative comments. It shall always be a place I take visitors to when they play tourists while in KL. We should thanks Tunku Abdullah for his farsighted. Had it not been for him the place would have gone forever. Have a nice day.
