Rope Walk


Whenever I'm in Penang I feel like it's not complete without visiting this place. Located at Lorong Kulit, somewhere near the Penang Hospital, the Jail and of course next to the City Stadium. It's a no fancy place. It's only a flea market where antiques, used household goods are sold. You can also find new electrical goods, clothes, textiles, 'amazing' traditional medicines, cosmetics, fruits, shoes, secondhand cellphones, used porcelain plates and even Buddha Statue! 'Weird' place huh? And you can find weird people too. There are a lot of stalls, the last time I went there was last Thursday, it wasn't too packed compared to Sundays where you can find more stalls and more people. The stuffs sold are cheap, just do a good bargain.

I don't know why I like to go there. I think my cousins got better reasons, cause they mostly do too. I remember my late Grand pa used to to buy the antique goods. He got the used fan, the old charcoal iron, an old radio. My funny grand pa. I'm not sure why, but I guess he just liked to collect those stuffs and let my late Grand ma find place to keep them. If they're broken he simply fixed them. Sometimes those stuffs just didn't look presentable, like they're supposed to be trashed instead of  purchased or reused. But if you're an antique goods collector, you may appreciate these more.
