Central Market and 11street Take 19th Century Malaysian Handicrafts Online

·         Online marketplace 11street takes a historic 19thcentury business into the 21st century
·         Central Market tenants welcome the move and look forward to tapping on the enormous market opportunities online
·         Brand new landing page is now live and packed with a series of promotional offers and discounts close to 40%

Online marketplace 11street (www.11street.my) and Central Market, one of Kuala Lumpur’s oldest and most famous centres for Malaysian culture and handicrafts products, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to make the historic venue’s offerings available to customers online.

Customers throughout the country can now browse and buy a huge variety of products from Central Market’s diverse mix of retailers, ranging from home & living, fashion, sports & leisure, electronics and even groceries.

“This strategic collaboration will enable a business, which began life in the 19th century to make its products available to consumers across the country through a state-of-the-art 21st century medium,” said Hoseok Kim, Chief Executive Officer of 11street during the signing ceremony.

Central Market has a rich history that dates back nearly 130 years to 1888. It currently hosts a total of 300 tenants and has become a landmark for souvenir shopping as well as an iconic opportunity to sample some of the finest aspects of Malaysian culture.

“Collaborating with 11street has been a fantastic development for us. One of the secrets of Central Market’s unbroken track record of success has been its location within the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Being close to a public transportation hub has also played a role in making it a major attraction for both tourists and Malaysians alike,” Cheong Wai Mun, Complex Manager of Central Market.

“Now, with the brand new presence on 11street, Central Market has broken its reliance on geography. Retailers can focus on doing what they do best – offering an incredible range of artistic and exciting products as well as services at attractive prices – to a wider group of audience,” Cheong said.

The move has been warmly welcomed by Central Market’s tenants. One of them is Gadis Manis Malaysia, a brand that promotes Malaysian’s cultural diversity, with products such as bags, t-shirts, tableware, stationary and aromatic oils inspired by Malaysia’s nature, architecture and cultures.

“I founded Gadis Manis in 2008 after moving to Malaysia and falling in love with the cultures diversity. I’m confident that partnering with 11street will add a new dimension to the business. I look forward to introducing my unique creations to a hugely expanded online customer base,” said founder, Florence Lambert Lee.

 Staying under the same roof, Wau Tradisi, a traditional handicraft shop that sells homemade Wau, congkak, gasing, wayang kulit and many more takes part on welcoming the collaboration. Wau, a uniquely designed Malaysian kite is a tradition inherent to the culture of 

Eastern States of Malayan Peninsula residents, such as Kelantan and Terengganu. Whereas congkak, gasing and wayang kulit are the traditional Malay games that have a century of history.

Expressing the happiness, Sarimah, founder of Wau Tradisi said, “E-commerce is universal nowadays, I’m glad that both Central Market and 11street make the effort to promote Malaysia culture by having our traditional items sold at 11street. With the combination between traditional products and modern online marketplace, I believe we can continue to carry on and bring our culture to more people, and even the future generation.”

Other than Gadis Manis and Wau Tradisi, the list of enthusiastic tenants also includes Borneo Pearl, which sells hand assembled jewellery pieces using pearls cultured in Sabah, and the Coconut Shop, which offers a wide range of products crafted from coconuts.

“All of Central Market’s tenants will benefit from the solid marketing support that 11street offers to its customers in order to make their online businesses a success. That includes education and training programs which covering effective product listing, digital content strategy, integrated online marketing, and photography,” Kim added.

In conjunction with the new launch, a series of Central Market’s promotional offers and discounts that are close to 40% will be available on 11street until 24 February 2017.

The Ultimate Laser Tag Game @ Laser Battle Berjaya Time Square Kuala Lumpur

Friday, March 25, 2016 3 Comments A+ a-

We get to experience the first Laser Battle game in Berjaya Time Square and it was fun and safe compare to Paintball. I never try Paintball but I have seen in my previous company team building session that some get hurt and worried on the leeches as well. Laser Battle sounds interesting and indoor air conditioning place to play a game just like Paintball.

Laser Battle will be your preferred choice because you will be playing with the MOST ADVANCE LASER TAG EQUIPMENT in the world. The equipment features multiple LED colours, bright green laser light, vibration sensors and sound effects that will add vibrance to the game play. Laser Battle also offers WORLD CLASS ARENA DESIGN, built by their in-house design and production team. Their finest in-house engineering team synchronizes the sound and light effects into the game play to deliver a real laser tag experience with heart pumping music that will really immerse the players into the battle. With 40 over remarkable game modes,  players are a leg up every single game experience.

Bright green lasers which you can see, and 7 vibration points to make sure you feel EVERY SINGLE SHOT! HELIOS PRO Laser Tag System provides a whole new level of experience compared with the competitors using LASERTR** and DELTASTRI. Moreover, the laser gun is very new; used just for a year.

Locker are available to keep your belongings. Locker rental is RM 2.


Laser Battle is a great place to organize events ,carnivals, fund raisers, family days, and team-building. The game can be played in group or individually. In each session, only 20 people can go inside. So the rest of the group can just sit there relax and they can play jenga, board games and X-Box.

The Marshall will brief us about the laser tag game, rules and regulations and the right method to use the laser equipment. We have to buckle up the Battle vest that has blinking lights on it and hold on the laser gun with two hands together. Name are printed on the screen on the laser gun and the Marshall explained we have six spots to target to get points. 4 spots are at the front vest, one at the back of the vest and another spot are the laser gun. We have to aims this few places to collect points.





Nice outfit and comfortable wearing it. Let's pose!!

Standard Solo -The Standard Solo game is a staple game of most laser tag facilities around the world. The objective of this game is to tag as many target zones as possible to accrue the most points of anyone playing in the game. Players get unlimited health and power and game ends after the specified time expires. Players can tag anyone and can be tagged by anyone. The game objective is to score as many points as possible and blast the competition away! 

The 10 minutes game starts when they open the door and when the lights and music is on and we are ready to find our target and shoot them. Build in a maze structure, I am running around to find my target and being chase too. Hold on tight to the gun and target your shooting point to the opponents lights. I also target those round objects with lights placed on top to collect more points and power up.

I have been scared few times and scream out loud, while running to find my target. Heart pumping session and I am impressed that the laser can actually shoot very far distance and clear laser tag can be seen. I have to wait 6 seconds to wait for the lights on again on my vest and reload the gun once I being shot by opponents. It is also challenging where you have to run and shoot at the right spot. 

We are playing with 3 younger kids age from 7-14 years old and they really can run fast huh..I am getting tired and hide one place to wait for them to turn up.

Amazing experience that makes me sweat alot within 10 minutes session. We have fun together, Playing hide and seek and thinking a strategies to aims targets. I am sure this is going to be more fun and excitement for team building session among colleagues or a group of friends and family members to come here to enjoy the laser tag session. 

Check out the following Youtube link to view on how they play the games inside.

*If you have young children, As long as the vest fits them, they are good to go. Great for all ages!
