Arrow What to shop for in Malaysia?

Hi ppl, my friend is going over to KL for a week. Wanted to know what i could buy cheap in malaysia. Like electronics goods or some car accessories etc.,

any pointers regarding the place to shop for? I heard Nike footwear and GAP apparel would be cheap there. maybe a couple of shades, mp3 players?

Well there are a kot of really good car accessories shops there but it all depends on what you want/require.Well if it were me id like to import the Proton Sastria really brilliant looking sports car but that would be asking for to much even though it costs abt RS4 lakhs there atleast it was the price the time i was down there fell totally in love with the car.
You could also ask him to get you something from the flea markets or night markets as you get really great imitation stuff there.

Well i have no clue really. think i might settle for some amplifier for my home theater system (still in the process of building one) or just a DVD player.

Ipod looks tempting but i wont have that much use for it anyway. Maybe a PS2 but then I dont think thatz as much important/

SIGH!

Well its electronics then. Maybe a couple of nice headlamps for my rides too. Have to check up on the net for that one though.

yeah try to find some neat fog lamps which he can get.incase you need a laptop he can get that if there isnt a very high importh duty on it or maybe a new phone or something.something for the car a good tachometer if you want one or.....dude i can go on.
you just need to do two things:

put aside the money you want to spend

list the things you really want and can get within that much money

Well money is not a majpr constraint. Maybe can go till 80k.
only constraint is the max weight allowed. just talked to him now.

I have asked for a nice pair of fog lamps for the OHC, a tacho, 3 pairs of head lamps. Not getting any audio stuff as he is not very good with it. Also i might get a creative jukebox 20GB

Or i might just settle for a home theater system.

will keep you updated.

For 80k you could get yourself a really good bargain for all of the above along with a good set of alloys and rubber which can be sent across as un accompanied baggege and also quiet a bit more like a head unit or an ipod or a laptop or a cellphone though cellphone prices are nearly the same.
Hey i meant really good and cheap IMITATION stuff like a rolex watch for under 500 bucks and a couple of mont blanc pens for 300 bucks you know stuff like that retail for anywhere between 5000 for a rolex watch to 3000 for a set of mont blanc pens here in mumbai.
