Since I was shouting "Hat rack. Hat rack. Expensive!! Expensive!!" last Christmas...so my own Santa introduced me to a new place (well, to me anyway)...Nilai 3.
A wondrous place it was. Hahaha.
Well, due to the lack of energy at that time, we managed to buy only 1 hat rack...so I went back to Nilai 3 last weekend with my loved ones.
There are basically 4 main things that are available :
1) Furniture (inclusive of carpets).
2) Kain ela.
3) Barang-barang hantaran.
4) Car kits (stuffs like tints, accessories, etc)
You have to walk a bit to get different prices. Ask around and of course...don't be afraid of bargaining to get the lowest price. For eg, my tikar...it is a 5x7 feet tikar with threads and buluh. At a Sarawak shop it was RM75. We bought the same thing at another shop, RM65 without bargaining...RM60 final price. See?
For those that is going to be married, some of the bunga telur are quite beautiful and cheap. There are various items suitable for those that wanted to do the items themselves, even for those that wanted to buy finished products. A lot of designs for inspirations are on display and various gorgeous plastic flowers. So I really recommend it for going to be brides and grooms to go and check it out.
As for the kain ela and car kits, really...I have no idea. Too many shops and me not really a shopper.
For the furniture, it is cash and carry. So, if you want that big bedroom set, you have to bring your own lorry. However, the price is quite affordable. The same hat rack in KL was RM70++, I bought it for RM39 only.
Jap...jap... dr ari tu lg aku nk tanye tp lupe, nape "Hat Rack" yg menjadi agenda utama ko? Bape byk hat ko ade sampai need rack? Ke cap je? ;-)
Aku modify hat rack tuh jadik 'stuffs rack'. Umah baru aku tak leh nak drill or paku la.
Very creative ;-)

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
