• From the Neighbourhood Grocery Store to the Giant Shopping Mall

    Abstraction of the Shopping Experience in and Evolving Malaysia

  • The shopping experience is evolving

  • Yesterday at the neighbourhood grocery shop

  • Today at the shopping mall

  • A struggle to co-exist

  • Against a background of a developing Malaysia

  • It was a different community back then

    From Kampung Tepus to Kajang to Kuala Lumpur

  • “Where everybody knows your name”

    Anatomy of the concrete shopping experience

  • Flexible pricing: the process of khaw tiim / tawar menawar

  • Evolution of the measuring tool

    Ref: http://www.hmetro.com.my/node/118283

  • An Issue of packaging

  • Bringing the groceries home

  • Is there really safety in numbers?

    Anatomy of abstract shopping

  • Spending the money you don’t have

  • Just another face in the crowd

  • Gastronomic cosmopolitanism or culinary hegemony?

  • Caveat emptor is a burden on the individual

  • The shop and the mall across the street from each other

    The Continuum of Shopping

  • The need for a definite direction

  • Trade in Malaysia

    Legacy of the divide and conquer policy
    The Chinese who trade
    The Indians who worked in the estates
    The Malays who farmed
    Alattas and the Myth of the Lazy NAtive

  • Knowing the Tauke personally

    Seng the Cabang Empat shopkeeper
    Uncle Liew my tailor
    Haji Amin’s tailoring shop
    The man who made Kajang the Satay Town

  • The Biodegradability Alternation

    From paper to plastic and back to paper

  • From the 555 booklet to the credit card

  • Flown in from the Center

    Red Lobster

  • Homegrown or subaltern food

    Manhattan Fish Market

  • From local to glocal

    Secret Recipe

  • The upraded versus the authentic

    The failure of the Nasi Lemak INternational at Ampang Park
