Micheal Jackson, Spiderman and Transformer At A Flea Market

I was looking at the things around the Amcorp Flea Market.

On Sunday October 30, 2011, I went to a very popular flea market in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

This is my first visit to a flea market ❗

The flea market is held in the Amcorp Mall building.

It is a very interesting and fun place to visit 🙂

The good thing about having the flea market in a building is, in Malaysia it is so hot and humid.

So it is nicer inside a building where there is air conditioner, unless when there is no electricity 🙂

There are lots of used, old LPs & EPs at the flea market.

We stopped at one stall that sells a lot of Micheal Jackson‘s LP & EP and over there we saw Micheal Jackson!

I saw Micheal Jackson at the Amcorp Flea Market!

There are lots of people especially at the ground floor which is the most interesting part of the flea market.

It is so nice to see so many interesting old things.

I even saw an old machine to mince meat that do not use electricity.

This stall sell old iron, photos, meat mincers, paintings and lots of other old things.
Old tricycle, stroller, bag and more at another stall.

People also sell all kinds of other old, used things like old iron, glasses, stroller, tricycle, telephones, clocks, books and lots of things that I have never seen before 😉

Old telephones, typewriter, sewing machine, clocks and others.

On the upper floor I saw a lazy Spiderman sitting on a chair and an immovable Transformer standing beside him.

Maybe Spiderman is very lazy and only during danger he’ll stand up  🙂

And the Transformer was talking to the Spiderman and telling Spiderman not to fall asleep because he(Transformer) cannot move, so he cannot do anything when danger comes  😉

The lazy SPIDERMAN and the immovable TRANSFORMER.

I hope that I can go there again because maybe there will be more interesting stuffs for me to see 🙂

China Flooding Kills 701 In Worst Toll In A Decade-Photos

There is a bad flood in China now.

It is a disaster.

701 people were killed by the flood and 347 are missing.

Three quarter of China’s provinces were hit by the flood.

25 rivers have reached record-high water level.

Heavy rain on the hillsides caused lots of landslides.

Lots and lots of houses and buildings were damaged.

The water level at the Three Gorges Dam is at record high.

It is now just 20m below the dam’s maximum capacity.

Three Gorges Dam is the biggest hydro power dam in the world.

The dam is on the Yangtze River.

Yangtze River is the longest river in China.

I think that the people in China must stop doing things that hurt the environment.

They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.

All these make a flood worse.

We have to take care of our Earth as in Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’.

China's Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River stood its biggest flood-control test at 8 a.m. Tuesday since completion, as the flow on the river's upper reaches topped 70,000 cubic meters a second. All ferry services were halted at the Three Gorges Dam on Monday, and would be resumed after the influx decreased to 45,000 cubic meters per second. (Xinhua/Cheng Min) (zgp)

A Day in Melaka (Malacca)

Yesterday I went to Melaka to visit Uncle Khairul Najmi’s mother.

Her name is Opah Asmah Idris.

Uncle Najmi is my father’s good friend.

She had a heart attack on Sunday.

She is now in the CCU ward of Hospital Melaka.

I met Atuk Idris and Aunty Aini at the hospital.

(but we forgot to take photo at the hospital)

After that we had lunch at ‘Lot 85’ with my father’s friends.

Their names are Aunty Jennifer Lim, Uncle Lee Chong Seong, Uncle Yong Chin Fook, Uncle David Wang and Uncle Ridwan Aziz.


They are Sulaimanians – they used to study at Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School (SSSS) in Kuala Terengganu. (The school blog – Click)

Now they live in Melaka.

I eat tasty nasi ayam (chicken rice) and drink a nice, cold lime juice.

We stop at Masjid Al-Azim for zohor.


On the way home, I saw a forest fire by the highway.

Forest fire is a disaster.

The forest fire reminds me of Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’.

I am sad because I was asleep in the car when Auntie Yaman called from Sudan.

I enjoyed the trip and hope to go to Melaka again.
