Inside Imbi Plaza Today

There are many laptop repair shops, all manned by courteous Pakistani people.

It may look or feel no different from certain corridors in nearby Low Yat Plaza where many foreigners, who are sales personnel, try to lure you into repair shops when you window shop.

The Pakistanis are less aggressive here and less scary than the Ah Beng vendors at the mobile phone kiosks in Low Yat Plaza. Those greet you with an automated "Yes?" when you walk near or sneak a glance at their wares. I call them the 'yes men' of LYP :-)

A follower on Instagram Aina Liyana (@pfrsch) commented about remembering one of my blog posts mentioning how the escalators at Imbi Plaza always break down.

I replied saying I am happy she remembered as it was probably written in the 80s and 90s. Also I was dismayed they are working today. That shattered memories that were so characteristic of the now forsaken mall.

I once described it as the world's only static escalators. They are always in a state of disrepair and the area was dark. Still is.

We Became IT Savvy Through Imbi Plaza.

Went to Imbi Plaza today. It brought back so many memories. The once bustling place faded when Low Yat Plaza replaced it as the IT hub. Imbi Plaza had so many shops selling cloned stuff then. It was also the place to go to get a replacement Thundercom 56k dial up modem when it was fried by lightning. Yes, kids. Those days were rough.
