Yup… The Pavilion at Jalan Tabuan also known as Sarakraf 😉

This place make and sell our local crafts, like beads, ceramic tiles (handmade), pua kumbu, songket, baskets, etc etc. For me to buy any souvenir is easy but to value a souvenir is to know how it is made. So I like to visit places like these to meet and talk to the artisans.

“Tree of Life” ceramic tiles. (I personally prefer the tattoos on his arms!)😉

Mary was weaving the songket Sarawak. It’ll take her two months to weave a 2-yard songket!! Patience is virtue!
