Little India

When was the last time I shopped at little India? Guess it must be more than a decade. I remembered my husband took me there to shop for Punjabi suit. Once he wanted to buy a saree for me but I refused it. After all, I wouldn't know how to tie a saree! 

So last Sunday, I visited it before I went to fetch my boy. I entered a boutique and I observed the bangles and the purses. They are really beautiful. I planned to buy one of those for my Deepavali Challenge's winner.
 
 Little India in Old Town Ipoh

I went into a normal shop and I saw some ready henna. So I bought some. My people and I might use them on Deepavali Day.



I even bought some Deepavali cards to be given to some of my customers..


The Deepavali Challenge is still on at Chang Jiang. Do have a look at the postings..

  7. Good afternoon Wenn,

    Those henna packets look really nice. And the cards you bought are nice too. I am sure your customers who receive the cards from you will be very pleased. Have a good public holiday today!

    Is your shop open for business today?
