Mini Soho Bazaar

Located on the same premises as the Primadona Bazaar in TTDI, there was a bit foot traffic that trickled into the Soho Bazaar tent. Although, there were only around 25-30 vendors. Given the bazaar’s awkward mid month date, a smaller crowd showed up.

Local Art Festival (LAFT)

After ditching their original venue at MaTiC Lanai at the last minute, the Local Art Festival moved to Encorp Strand in Kota Damansara and still managed to pull in a decent crowd.


VERDICT: Good crowd, but with the Damansara Street Fest at the same venue a week before. The Encorp Strand is losing its allure. Perhaps time to look for new options…


Social Media Festival 2014

Festivals and flea markets are kicking off here in KL. Here is our review of LocalActMy’s Social Media Festival.

Last weekend, we made our way to Localactmy’s Social Media Festival 2014. Needless to say, the event was a resounding success. During the day, the festival drew a large group of vendors and shoppers. We were also surprised at the number of shops who actually made the commute from outstation to KL (more specifically Psychedelic Store & Fitting Room Concept from JB).

The festival is a collaboration of Malaysian online movements from local fashion to art. It’s a natural match with Localactmy as our objective is to market the young generation to a wider audience. We appreciate their talent in the local scene – Izrul Hanafiah, Founder of Localactmy.

As evening approached,  local musicians took the stage to wrap up a successful day out. Kudos to Localactmy, it was a neat and well organized event (also their first attempt!) Looking forward to the next festival in July.

Prachenta Damai Souq

The Prachenta Damai Souk attracted a host of celebrity vendors. Afdlin Shauki and Dira Abu Zahar promoted their respective brands E Have B.O.B and Allydeanra, while Catrionna Ross and Linda Hashim sold pre-loved clothes and beauty products.


Verdict: The Damai Souq organizes flea market quite often so they already have strong base following. The venue is spacious and can fit about 40 vendors. They usually charge RM100/2 days. The booth is usually 10×10.
