No Crowd X Photo’s Allowed: Jonker’s Best, No Doubt!

if you are familiar with Jonker Street

or at least has been there

you should have remembered

the statute of this boy

seated in an antique shop

somewhere in the middle of the street

antique shop, Jonker Street, Malacca

 

the sale team is

surprisingly friendly and helpful

I always have the impression that

well established store like that

tend to ignore patrons like us

especially these who do not look

affluent enough to spend money

at such places

antique shop, Jonker Street, Malacca: Chanap box

 

the very eye-catching “chanap” box

an exclusive Strait Chinese ornament for

displaying the candies as offering

during the annual Lunar New Year prayer

3,900 MYR for this one, any one?

another eye-catching item

well in our definition

that kind of dimly-shiny gold paint

is indeed eye-catching

statute of Master Zhong Kui 鐘馗

who is in charge of

catching bad spirit / ghost

my dad is quite crazy over him, though

do I have to explain further?

hmmmm…

Master Zhong Kui 鐘馗

 

there are more upstairs

I like how the staircase was redesigned

as the other houses of the era

have a spiral narrow staircase

usually by the left side

this is way easier to walk

and it created extra space

like the intermediate level

where the chairs are

and for the area above the chairs

where the bedframe is

you actually enter via

another staircase from the back

this pair of pretty babes

my jaw almost dropped

29,000 MYR

life is suddenly slow..

more collections upstairs

the “high-end” items, of course

antique shop, Jonker Street, Malacca

 

I jokingly asked if

this is for sale

indeed it is

but quite pricey

I might as well go for my Fixie

oopps.. did I just mention

antique shop, Jonker Street, Malacca

 

we should have walked in like

ten years back?
