Kuala Lumpur - ToyBoy Heaven!#

Last night we went out into the streets of Kuala Lumpur and found the ultimate toyboy mall - six floors of toys!

Going up the escalator, you're looking into the center of the mall, its a big cylinder, six floors high, geek stores all the way around.

Looking back down, its all cell phone shops, PC hardware, gadgets, toys, you name it...

How many malls do you know have huge billboard signs for hard drives?

Singapore has something similar... 5-6 stories high with an 'all mezzanine' layout, very cool! I'll try to remember the name of it for you...

I can also vouch for the one in Singapore (Called Funan Plaza), though between the IT floors in Sungi Wang and Lou Yatt Plaza and all of Imbi Plaza (all very near each other), I think Malaysia trumps the Singapore version, but I'm biased, I spent more time in KL than Singapore. Also very noteworthy is Pantib Plaza in Bangkok. Similar in size to Funan, (I think larger), but with a similar flavor to the ones in Malaysia. Man do I miss those malls. There's nothing like that here.

Can't argue with that - Frys Electronics is a pale echo of these malls.
