THE CREATORS of Sunny Side Up Market are bringing you the upscaled In the Mood for Love 2018 market at The KL Journal Hotel in Bukit Bintang this weekend.

The market is channeling all things Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day over the weekend, so head down to the brand spanking new and very chic venue to pick up a beautiful, locally made gift for that some special someone. Or find the perfect prosperity gift to share at your Chinese New Year gatherings.

The event will be filled with beautifully adorned stalls full of homemade goodies from homegrown Malaysian small-medium businesses.

“Expect a carefully curated community market with a festive feel that showcases a range of stylish and unique products. From ready-to-wear fashion and accessories to travel and gift ideas, this market will offer a different excitement for guests and families alike,” Aida Salleh told Travel Wire Asia.

A focus on sustaining local crafts and trades will be key at the event. Shoppers and browsers can admire and purchase the incredible work of Beatrice Lau, who designs and makes traditional and contemporary batik.

Market-goers can discover the ancient art of stunning copper bottle making as well, used by ancient Egyptians and the Ayurvedic for its anti-bacterial and sterilization properties. The ladies behind @kritajna_my have turned a simple craft into something beautifully elegant, sure to get you a few compliments around the office.

Get inspired to write and travel as you flick through (and hopefully purchase) a copy of the independent, bi-annual magazine, Musotrees. With its enchanting stories, endless traveling ideas and white-space design, you’ll have plenty of room to feel inspired.
