I went back to Petaling Street Market in Chinatown with Ryan. I caved and bought the knock-off Coach purse. And a pair of knock-off Gucci sunglasses. How could I say no when a man was running after me with the purse yelling "110, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40!" At 40 ringgit I turned around a bought the purse. Not a bad deal if I do say so myself.
The sunglass sale was almost as comical. There were signs all over for 15 ringgit sunglasses - but I didn't like any of them. I pointed to a pair I thought I would like sitting on a table and inquired as to the price. The lady said "Oh, too much" in a very serious voice, "35 ringgit." I almost burst out laughing. Thirty-five ringgit is about $12. So I bargained a little and walked home with a pair of slightly over-the-top blingy (is that a word?) sunglasses. But I was in Chinatown, what can I say?
