Every year in the month of Ramadhan muslims from within and outside Kuala Lumpur will throng Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman area to shop for clothes and food in preparation for their Eid festival or Hari Raya as they call it in Malay. They could get almost anything there at a bargain. It is such a happening and colourful place even the grand and glittering shopping malls around KL find it hard to match.
I took the opportunity to shoot around the bazaar last weekend. Enjoy the pictures!
