19 september 2010 hunting trip

Monday, September 27, 2010


I am going back to Kota Kinabalu for the last Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Its been a busy two weeks holiday for me, I need to squeeze my coin hunting trip when I get a spare time. I want to say sorry to all of my coin collector friends in Kota Kinabalu because cannot meet all of you. Will try to make it next time. The only two place I get a chance to visit for coin hunting are Wisma Merdeka and Gaya Street Tamu. Gaya Street Tamu or Sunday Market is a must visit place if you ever go to Kota Kinabalu. Its open every Sunday starting from 6am until around 1 pm.

I am visiting Gaya Street Tamu on 19 September 2010. Its a short coin hunting trip since my flight back to Kuala Lumpur is on the same day. Gaya Street pack with people that day, mostly foreign tourist. I get a chance to visit Cikgu Chong but nothing that interest me on display that day. I try to find Michele. On my way to Michele stall, I found this new guy (Correct me if I am wrong). I don't get a chance talking with him since he got customer that time. I waited for 5 minutes but he still busy entertaining his customer. Or maybe I am invisible that day? I just take my pictures and go to Michele stall.

I think everyone of you still remember Michele, right? When I go there, no banknotes or coins that interesting for me to buy and keep. But her pressing irons on sell a little bit interesting for me. Normally she only display the normal charcoal irons. On that day, she got the flat sad iron, fuel liquid iron and another collectibles iron that I don't know what they called it. There is a metal iron in that pressing iron. All of that irons are heavy, at least weight 3 Kg a piece. I am not an antique pressing iron collector but its not easy to spot this kind of iron in Malaysia. I had seen the flat sad iron before but not the fuel liquid Iron and that other one. She is selling those irons for RM800 a piece. I don't know the market price of this collectibles but you can always bargain if you interested.

I don't buy anything that day. Just another unlucky hunting trip for me.
