    Default Don't buy bag in KL

    Don't by imported bags in Malaysia. The import duty of leather is very high there.

    i went there last weekend too...

    i found a shop (din remember the shop name) in the new shopping center - "Times Square" stuffs ard S$100 cheaper than here, e.g. D70 (with lens) for RM4215 (offered price, free to bargain), but doesnt have much choice...

    yet, from wat my kl cousin told me, act like u'r local buyer - speak cantonese (if u know how), put ur luggage in hotel room (if u had check in to hotel) or car (if u driving to kl)...

    n of cos, most important try to bargain with the guys... enjoy ur trip there...
    btw, i'm not sure abt the camera bags...

    Going to KL to get photo gear? You must be joking! Even the m'sians are making their way down to S'pore to get them.

    I got ripped off for CR123 batts 2 years ago in KL... but I had no choice.

    Buy the back in S'pore and use your savings to get a few decent meals in KL.

    cheers!
