Laman Seni “Street Art” Seksyen 2, Shah Alam

I have been staying in Shah Alam since the 80s and I must say I’ve seen so many changes in Selangor (Shah Alam especially) within the past 8 years, both in the system and outlook of Shah Alam (PKNS more corporate, landscaping more beautified).

Recently, if you notice the Seksyen 2 area, (nearby the 2 blocks of shophouses), students from the Faculty of Art and Design, UiTM Shah Alam are working hard together with MBSA to beautify the back lane of the shophouses.

Called Laman Seni Shah Alam, the walls of the back alley are transformed into creative designs and murals that mostly potray Seksyen 2 Shah Alam, such as Kedai Maria, 7-Eleven and Master Art.

Check out some of the pics that I managed to snap recently:

sponsor for laman seni seksyen 2 shah alam Of course, a tribute to the sponsor who funded the project – Bank Muamalat

The Mayor of Shah Alam said the project is aimed to change the public’s perception towards back lane alleys. He plans to have weekend bazaars for local brands to sell a variety of items such as accessories, pre-loved clothes and craft produce. I can’t wait for it. Some of my friends said that it’s a perfect place to do #ootd too. Hehehe…

Now dah cantik-cantik macam ni, its the public’s responsibility to maintain the cleanliness and the prettiness of the back lanes. How I wish they would do this in all sections in Shah Alam, barulah jadik Shah Alam Bandar Seni (fuhhh….)…oh yeah, after this I have to try the new Trek Basikal. I think that is a brilliant project as well. I love Shah Alam!

Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival 2013

Last two Sundays, my family and I went to the Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival which was held in Lanai Matic (just beside Saloma Bistro along Jalan Ampang)….(shows how long this blog is not updated)….

KL Vintage Festival

Anyway, my husband yang ajak coz he loves this vintage market thingy, especially when his favourite vendors are selling off their racks of bundle clothes and retro-feel items……I pun suka, so kitorang pun pegilah awal pagi Sabtu. The day before it rained so area Lanai Matic tu was wet all the way lah…plus ada smelly sikit but most probably from nearby longkang ke apa, but, it was tolerable……

First stall was a stall selling bundle clothes, wahhh bersinar2 mata husband ku….and Doc Marts and Raybans….

Dr Marts

Jalan-jalan (we turned right after this stall)…..we passed a few food stalls so bolayan dulu coz baru je breakfast nasi lemak at home….then we saw Wak Doyok…terus nak tangkap gambar with this celebrity (Wak Doyok is known for his mustache, his sense of fashion and people envy how slim he is – he’s even slimmer in real life!).

He’s promoting his range of clothes called The Garment, inspired by manly look and strong British influence. Check out his FB page/Thegarment to know more.

We passed through many stalls and each of them have their own character, were very interesting in their own way. Just see the pictures that I snapped. The one below here is from Therubahstore. It’s where I bought vintage ‘bekas kole’ (in my favourite colour – mint!). Check out their range of tins and trinklets too…you can also check out their instagram (with the same name).

Project Swissify. This was where I got my leather-looking studded bangle (the ones displayed in the suitcase). The owner said it was a hit during Urbanscapes so they were left with only a few bangles.

After dah jalan-jalan, we feel like having something to munch and saw these huge choc chip cookies! Yummers! They came in L size and XL. My kids love them so much!

Dah makan, mesti nak air kan, we bought Pop The Soda. This is the first non-alcoholic, local Malaysian made Indie Soda brand in the market (based in Putrajaya). They were tastyyyyy!!!!….Love them so much now we regretted that we only bought 5 bottles. They come in a few flavours (Lychee, Soursop, Banana, Pineapple and Mango). Sedapp…but at first, look at Amar’s reaction when he sipped the soda.

Hahahah…but after that he was ok….semua nak nak nak lagi….haihhh…kesian hubby I dapat minum sikit je…

I love the brown bottles! You can also book them for weddings or engagement or anything I guess….we’re planning to buy more (for our stock – hahaha)…

Entrance fee was RM1 per person and we got KL Vintage stickers each. My husband also bought me a KL Vintage Festival 2013 t-shirt as a remembrance. I love the tee! (it’s a baseball kinda t-shirt).

We hope join this kind of festival/event again in future. Thank you Pintu Merah and Lanai Matic for organising this social event.
