Little India

Silent reader? Hmmm..someone told me that some people have been reading my blog secretly. They did not leave any comments in my blog and I wonder why was that. I hope it's not because my blog is boring. Hahaha! But, I really appreciate those who had left their comments in my blog. Without a doubt, the comments had made my blog lively and important.

Now... do you know that there's a little town in Kuching that isn't "silent" at all? It's the India street! (I don't have to tell you what India Street is since I'm no Wikipedia). I usually avoid going there because the place is quite congested especially weekends. But still, despite the jam and crowd, spenders and window shoppers love to go there for shopping and sight seeing. This year, I went there twice and the last visit there was because of the Sarawak Regatta.

(One of the paths leading to India Street)

Although I can get good bargain at India Street, the crowd really pisses me off. I just wish that, less people would go there during weekends and for me, it resembles Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur.
The competition among the sellers is high during weekends. Business owners will sell their stuff outside their shops and shout "mari mari, murah murah!" which means "come! it's cheap!". No doubt, this aggressive marketing strategy is successful in attracting the crowd.
The selection of t-shirts is wide in India Street, so if you are planning to save petrol on going to Serikin, you should try India Street . You can always bargain the price with the business owners. Trust me, sometimes the goods sold on weekends are really cheap.

I am a silent reader sometimes, but most of the time, I love to leave a comment or two : )

I hate crowds and will avoid places with too many people!

Sometimes I am a silent reader esp if I can't think of a decent comment to put up.

Some blogs you can comment "nonsense" on it so it's easier to comment. :D

Silent readers are a common thing on the internet. Sometimes people just read but don't comment. Not necessarily blogs or websites are boring. They are just not into leaving comments.

Our local Chinatown here is a disappointment.
