Hari Kraf Kebangsaan 2024

National Craft Day!

We picked you up as we disembarked at the Conlay MRT Station and walked across the street to the Kuala Lumpur Craft Complex where the Hari Kraf Kebangsaan (National Craft Day) 2024 was being held. We were feeling a little hungry, so we walked over to Kampung Nelayan Kraf which hosted a collection of food stalls.

We browsed for a while before settling on Nasi Kak Wook for RM9.00 each, a Kelantanese dish of rice with chicken cutlets and gravy. We also had a cup of extremely sweet Iced Sugar Cane for RM3.00 each. Our early lunch came to RM24.00 (approximately USD/EUR5).

We then headed into the arts and craft exhibition hall where Cat browsed to her heart's content. A stall selling Sabahan ceramic beads caught Cat's eye, alas the proprietor was nowhere to be found.

We continued browsed the various stalls and met our friend Lipang Lawai of Raben Beads. Cat got a couple of earrings for RM28.00 (approximately USD6/EUR5). A brightly coloured woven bag then caught Cat's eye at Jenny Geoffrey's stall, so we got it for RM50.00 (approximately USD11/EUR10).

We then came upon Caroline Agan's stall, Cat's favourite beadstress and got from her:

  •  2 pairs of earrings 
  •  2 Kabo necklaces 

for RM260.00 (approximately USD55/EUR50). We then had a drink at the canteen before resuming our shopping spree in the next exhibition hall which housed the household items. Here we browsed for Labu Sayong (an elegant, gourd-shaped carafe that is used to keep water cool) and settled for a medium sized one for RM60.00 (approximately USD13/EUR12) from Qazana Gifts & Crafts stall.

We then doubled back to the arts and craft hall and were glad that Houston Rarandis was finally at his stall. We got two Sabahan ceramic necklaces from him for RM150.00 (approximately USD32/EUR29).

Two and a half hours later we left the Kuala Lumpur Craft Complex with a handsome bounty and made our way back to the Conlay MRT Station. Be sure to catch our previous video where I gave a rude GoKL bus driver a piece of my mind!
