The Mall

On my way back to the hotel I stop by what I think is a small collection of shops - I may want a drink, plus I'll check on the band-aids here. In a micro-grocery store I also see a plug converter that I need to pick up.

Turning the corner I see a few more stores, and then a few more, and then I'm in the atrium of this shopping center megalopolis with at least six levels! All the stores are small and crammed to the gills with what they are peddling. I get the USB cable I need and I'll stop back by and get the converter on my way out.

Some interesting store names, though:

Honey and Bee (ladies fashion)
Shooting Star Station (jewelry)
It's Hairy! (haircuts)
The Knotty Shop (cross stitch gifts - seriously!)
Malaysia Reptile House (leather goods and purses)
Wait A Coffee (snack bar)
House de Boneless Chicken (restaurant?)

There is a little internet cafe that takes an unusually strict view on gaming. Check out the sign on the window:

In Singapore, electronics are pretty close to US prices - not cheap enough to warrant buying anything. I'm going to Malaysia this weekend...that's where the deals are!

gaming is illegal? what? did you ask about that?

Trey said...

I think that they just really wanted to keep people from monopolizing their systems. I haven't heard of gaming in general being illegal.
