Pasar Laut Dalam

There’s a popular night market called Pasar Laut Dalam (if im not mistaken) held in Uptown DJ every Saturday night.

Majority of the crowd consist of Malays. It was a culture shock for me as I seldom go to Malay night markets. The place has loads of counterfeit goods such as from bags, clothes and even football boots.
There’s a shop selling 2nd hand shoes every few metres. You’ll know it before you see one as the smell of the shoes are overwhelming. The accumulated smell of sweat from hundreds of feet makes the smell pungent.

The origins of the shoes are debatable. Some say that most of the shoes are stolen shoes.

I heard about this saying that if you find your shoes missing in the morning, just head down to DJ Uptown market on Saturday night to buy your shoes back.

I was a little bit scared after taking this photo. The owner of the shop looked like he’s going to bash me up.
Oh, guess what else I saw?

  1. selling 2nd hand shoes whereby you have no idea who the owner is and you might not know whether that person have hong kong foot or not, dun think will buy those 2nd shoes haha

  3. I remember my super comfortable, super nice suede tan Airwalk skate shoes. Some $#(%&# stole it right from inside my front door grill.
    Man, those Airwalk’s were great. They were better than sports shoes because if you compare, running/basketball/cross trainers are too cushiony (for high impact activities) and even too tight fitted (for support, and so your shoes don’t fly from your foot when you run/kick..).
    Prob some illegal immigrant bought them from this market and is wearing them right now, to the envy of his friends.

    funny. this one woman who worked at my place here before, family not well off ya. she was explaining to me that she sometimes helps out her sister to “clean shoes” for extra income. they will be given a big bag of shoes and were supposed to wash it clean. apparently for “shoe shop” who sells 2nd hand shoes. funny thing is she didn’t say how the “employer” got the shoes. wonder if it’s the same case?
