Hi Kayes, I've been trying to locate this shop. Exactly whereabouts is this shop on Treacher St? If I'm heading down Hugh Low St., is it on the left or right side of the road? This looks like a very interesting shop to visit.

Joe, I took the pic in 2005. If you come down from Hugh Low Street, it is on the right towards Panglima Lane. Look at pic below ..... from where I was standing when i took this pic, the shop is behind me on the right. During my past few trips, I have not seen it open and maybe they have moved but the Indian fellow did tell me that their opening times were uncertain.

Hi Kayes, I think I know where it is. You were standing at Yap's tyre shop and took this pic. Ok, I will try to locate this shop and find out its operating times. Thanks.

Yes indeed, I was standing right in front of that tyre shop when I took the second pic. Actually it was my niece who spotted the shop and I have never seen it before. That day we went to Kong Heng for an early lunch and I happened to park the car near there. I went in to check whether they had any of those car grille badges I collect but they had never heard of it. I saw some old watches and there was a Roskopf wristwatch that looked good but I no longer collect watches. Funny, Perak seems to be a good place to find these vintage Roskopf watches. During my watch collecting days, I was offered quite a number of these watches from Kuala Kangsar, Taiping and Padang Rengas.

I went to look for that shop and it was closed. I think they might have moved to another place. Will make some enquiries about it.

Joe, somehow I suspect they have moved to the market opposite Yik Foong. There used to be a good number of antique dealers there housed in small cubicles.

I was told that an hardware and software developed that with a laser beam the noisy tracs will be read p0rocessed electronicaly to reduce noise and enhancethe overall signal as if it is very recently recorded

This shop looks very interesting. Ample valuable things to see and buy.


Wish to talk about those Bundle shops that are mushrooming. I really wonder from where those shops get their supplies. I was told those jeans and shirts are of original brands.


Shoes esp. branded sport shoes are often got stolen. So much so the joke goes that if you lose any of your shoes, just go to those road side shoes stalls along Chow Kit; chances are you can find your shoes there. But you have go there immediately since those stolen shoes are hot items. These culprits know what shoes are in demand.


Same goes with those drain covers. Just drive along any roads even major roads in Klang valley; very often you can see all the drain covers are missing. I always ask: "Even people with good eyesights can fall into those drains; some of them are monsoon drains if we are not careful. What about those sight impaired friends of ours?"


The drain cover in front of our main garden gate has gone missing more than twice. If not of the auto gate; we would have fallen into the drain many a time. Now, the drain cover is welded into the drain and under locks and keys.

Talking about stolen shoes. Many shops and offices here require their customers to remove their shoes before entering their shops. Computer shops; Hair Saloon even furniture shops. I find this very irritating. Just imagine leaving your shoes outside the shops unattended. Not that my shoes are branded, but there are people's ones are. On top of that, when we are inside the shop, everyone is a stranger and you have to walk bare-footed. It is so awful!! Even in my house, I wear bed-room slippers. Bare footed only when sleeping.
