Treasure hunting at Markets 18....

For me, there is nothing more lovely then strolling through bazaars, flea markets, markets with bric n' bracs and so on in search of unique 'treasures' you normally cannot find elsewhere... and believe me each time I wander around in any of these bazaars or Sunday/ weekend 'markets', I will come across some pretty amazing items and so on....

I was at the Markets by Jaya One recently over the past weekend (on 14 and 15 May ), and all I can say is 'Wow'....... 
It was definitely heaven there for fashion devotees, food aficionados and lifestyle enthusiasts. It was my first time there after hearing a lot about it and so I was excited and could not wait to find out more... or see what was available.... and it definitely did not disappoint at all!!!!

There was a whopping 120 vendors, being the biggest Markets to date. 
imSold, a buying and selling app was the main sponsor, and it hosted a variety of games, one of which participants had an opportunity to sell items provided by imSold to random strangers through the app. 
Participants walked away with cash vouchers as well as the money made from the sale. How cool was that!!! I heard there was also a treasure hunt where one lucky contestant walked away with cash vouchers worth RM160 to shop at Markets.
An ice cream eating contest sponsored by Jersey Jack Gelato had participants fighting through a brain freeze by being the quickest to finish two scoops of ice cream! On top of that, participants who successfully reenacted certain movie scenes were given free tickets to Potted Potter by Milestone Productions.
As so you can see, there was just soooo much fun there...

I was there on the first day....and while we were strolling through the stalls, we got to enjoy music from up-and-coming musicians such as Hameer Zawawi, a singer-songwriter, Djezna's Stalker as well as Nan Blues amazed the crowd with their music performances. I heard that on the second day there were Three Octaves, a three piece acoustic rock band, and Ray Cheong, a singer-Songwriter cum guitarist who has performed in countless venues all over the states in Malaysia and continents of Southeast Asia, United Kingdom and Europe.
Let me take you on a little trip through the markets my way....

I happened across some very pretty cakes and cupcakes stall.....
