All of this was taken during my visit back to Johor Bahru Malaysia, my home town. 

I have been looking through this amazing flea market called the Junkies Junk Sale, organized by Halin Ghooi and 3 other partners (the Junkies) together. These young arty people have been doing this for the past 2 years.. and finally i got the chance to visit them.

What impressed me was the entire street is filled with creative fashionable people. Also, this street has it's own historical value, in terms of settings, lighting, shop houses. You will see styles and images reflecting from the 70's. It really changed my perception of the JB'rians fashion sense, as i use to think that they are all "obit" and Tecky! Well, in Junkies Junk Sale, people there prove me wrong!

Nevertheless, This place contained the foot prints and memories from my ancestors... and the last person in the Tan family who lived here was my wonderful father. he spend most of his childhood here. The only thing that i could remember vividly from this place was my grand father once owned a fabric shop, and gain quite a huge reputation in the textile market as a successful business men. 

Am really happy to see Creative people like us today were still able to cultivate the culture from the 70's and transform it into a whole new statement. 

The trip back to visit Junkies Junk sales gave me the inspiration to collaborate something special, which relates to Fashion with them. So do stay tune for more upcoming events soon!
