The Local Market on the Waterfront
Started the morning by heading to the local market near the Waterfront - the main aim was to get my rucksack transporter bag repaired (torn courtesy of the airline in transit - just glad it wasn't the ruck sack). Found a lovely little local man who said he could repair it for 5MYR - I think by his standards this was probably overcharging but to me it was a good price and he did a fantastic job. Domestic sewing skills is so not my forte even if I had a machine available! Plus I have enough insect bites without adding needle puncture wounds to them - that is my excuse anyway. So I took the opportunity to take some photographs in the market and of the people around the market whilst he was busy with a sewing machine. If you love jewellery or little knick knacks then this is the place to go though I didn't indulge in anything more than the photos.
