Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) & Jalan Masjid India, K. L.

Previous post - click here

Reached Jalan TAR & Jalan Masjid India that show us another face of West Malaysia.

There are a lot of Indians that operates businesses and most of them are selling textiles as one of the main source of income at that area. Maybe that's how it was called "Small Indian Town" too.

Besides, the uncle who offered himself and brought us around, lead us to the largest Indian's supermarket (with Indians workers, Indians customers etc) and we found imported Arabian snacks and other similar imported goods too.

The tactics of attracting customers to buy clothes and textiles.

It was a guy with fake hair and girly dress!

Randomly walked in to a textile shop that are selling Indian/ Punjabi suit with discounted price, but not that cheap either (Anyway, it's reasonable and worth to be invested in one or two traditional dresses).

The ladies chosen few clothes while I chosen one Punjabi suit for special occasion. FYI, the seller told me that it was their last price for all the suits that they hanged, it's because they wanted to clear all the stocks that cost more than RM200.00 each after the festive season on the other day.

While waiting for my elder sister and my mom to choose for themselve, I looked around and went to my dad who was standing beside the counter, wondering what was he looking at.

Saw the man that is doing the embroidering? He is really talented with a pair of eyes and hand that could memorised and hand made stitching all the embroideries on to a cloth that his customers requested. I'm amazed!

Designing? He does have the talent to do so.

Some information that I wanted to share...

They told me that the man doing the embroidering is famous for his talent and many high level people such as Tan Sri's wife, Datins, famous Bollywood stars and many other famous people requested him to tailor made their embroideries on to their clothes.

Guess... It will be extremely expensive for him to tailor-made a dress for us. However, I love embroidered dresses that could make myself looks great during the night! I love shiny shiny.

That was my Traditional Punjabi Suit with combination of Red and Green colour that I bought from the shop at Jalan TAR, and you can't imaging how cute was it when I'm wearing. :D

All of them pursued me to buy it!

Besides, my mom bought me a textile from one of the textile shop for CNY and our usual tailor just completed the suit. The good thing is I can wear separately as a dress or a Modern Punjabi Suit at different occasions!

Nice! I love to wear dresses, and my wardrobe is going to explode anytime..... ANYTIME!
