The holiday was spent with me and Johan trying to find wedding items. It's four months left to the wedding and luckily, all the major things have been taken cared of.
We went to Petaling Street on one hot and sunny afternoon. Thinking that it's going to be a marathon from Petaling Street to Jln. TAR to PJ State. But we were so exhausted in the middle of Jln. TAR and decided to go to PJ next time. What's in PJ? Well, there's an art shop selling easels in various size and design at an affordable price range. I'll let you guys know the drill once I buy the easels from them yeah?
Okay, let's move on to the initial story. The reason we went to Petaling Street was to buy paper lanterns and decorations for my reception. I happen to know from an anonymous that there's a shop selling paper lanterns so cheap you feel like crying! Hahaha! So that afternoon, we just went there and were looking at the map by the roadside, felt like tourists, asked some directions from the locals and tried to find the shop. It is hidden, you must have missed it if you're not aware of the surroundings.
What did we bought?
- 13 (16-inch) plain paper lanterns in red, white and pink.
- 4 (14-inch) flower-cut paper lanterns in black.
- 2 kipas bulu (for bersanding).
- 70pcs white organza pouch.
Total damage? RM150!!!!
Omgggggggg!!!!! So cheap yes I feel like crying because money is so tight right now so anything cheap will make me drool. Haha!
They sell various types of lantern. The biggest paper lantern ever is cheap too, selling at RM19.90. Sooooo huge!!! They do have the famous kipas bulu but in limited colors tho, maybe kehabisan stok? When I was there, they only have it in red, white, orange and yellow. I thought of buying black and red fan but after some discussion with Johan, we settled for the white fan. Senang nak guna for other function later. Yes, you can unwrap it and check if there are any defects before you commit to buy the fans. They don't mind. I buat macam itu kedai I sendiri je, try itu ini without even asking them. Haha!
It's in Jalan Panggong. If you're coming from the market area in Petaling Street, walk just a bit further up to your right. Keep your eyes open and you'll see a McD signage across the road and there's a signage to Jalan Panggong. Enter the alley and walk straight up until you reach a row of shoplots. The shop is located next to a restaurant. From the outside you could see lanterns hanging inside the shop, you're at the right place then.
Or if you're still clueless, just ask any taxi drivers yang dok melepak tepi jalan tu. They'll help you. Owh I love Malaysians!
