Every year Kuala Lumpur City Hall issues temporary permits to the traders to open their stalls along Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman in Kuala Lumpur city centre. Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman is located off Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman regarded to be the busiest road in Kuala Lumpur. The bazaar attracts people from all walks of life who go there to buy things in preparation for Eid Festival. People who go there are not only from Kuala Lumpur but they are from various parts of the country as you can find pratically everything here ranging from all sorts of traditional clothes to the wide range of food as well as household items. In short it is a mecca for shoppers. What is more attractive here is almost all the merchandise offered here are at bargain prices.
For photographers the site is also a haven for street photography. The subject is everywhere. It is full of human activies, facial expression and being Asian it presents a wide spectrum of hues.and shades.
Do enjoy the highly colourful scenes that I managed to capture recently.
I also would like to wish all muslim readers ‘Selamat Hari Raya Eidulfitri’ or Eid Mubarak.
I hope you enjoy the upcoming Eid or Hari Raya with your loved ones around.
Have a safe journey on your ‘balik kampung’ trip and do drive carefully.
