A Visit To Rattan Shop

My mom suddenly has the urge to repair the 2 rattan dining chairs that Chester destroyed eons ago. My first visit to this old rattan ‘shack’ were fulled of fu wahhh, ohhh and wahhh. During my next trip there I decided to snap some pictures of the shop. My answer to the owner when he asked me the impending question (what’cha doing with a camera in my shop?): “Because your shop is so unique. This is out of the norm. Something I don’t see everyday.” πŸ™‚

So here are just a couple of pictures which I think are good enough to show the world. Haha

Outside the old rattan shop…

This shop is situated beside a busy road. Business is not bad judging from the number of customers I saw. Notice the 2 chairs on the right of this picture? That’s ours. Haha

Rattans with roots still intact. Cool.

A cute rattan basket.

Birdcage and wind chime. Ohh they go together so well.

Another look at the rattans’ roots.

Love how the leaves look under this roof.
My mom had the exact same rattan basket (right) many years ago.

So do you own any rattan furniture?

Besides rattan chairs, we have a couple of rattan baskets, a rattan laundry basket and a rattan lounger chair.

Support rattan okay? πŸ™‚

    I’m always too afraid to take photos in public. Getting asked the question “what are you doing” is my big fear!

    Very interesting photos of the different patterns and textures in the rattan shop!

    Adino, me too afraid but sometimes I do put on my ‘muka tebal’ face. lol

    What intrigued me most is the rattans’ roots.

    Wow, these rattan furniture brings back memories of growing up in Ipoh, mom’s and relatives’ homes. My mom also had that rattan basket, and I think she still has it πŸ™‚ Oh, I too dare not whip out the camera in shops or grocery stores for pictures. People start looking at me one kind.

      Hi NH,
      This rattan shop is located in Klang. If I’m not mistaken it’s located at Jalan Pekan Baru, opposite Kwang Hua School.
