I’m currently in the party planning mode. So here I am sharing with you where I get most of my party supplies.
1. Joe Meng Trading
This shop is in Taman Melawati just next to Kohilal. I love this shop because it has variety of stuff to choose from. Also sebab this shop is in Melawati – a place I’m familiar with. From party hats to balloons to sweets to cookies to colouring books to paperbags. Semua ada. At wholesale price. Food brands pun banyak choice from the reputable ones to made-in-I-don’t-know-where ones. Please choose wisely when buying party packs for kids. The unknown brands might be cheaper tapi please consider the kids health and well being ya. As for me, I always always screen dulu any party packs IY dapat and only let him have the okay ones only.
However, kedai ni too packed. Sempit sangat dalam dia. Kalau tengah ramai orang, memang berlaga bahu la jawabnye. But I guess that’s expected for a wholesale shop. Kalau nak berlenggang kangkung ber aircond bagai, sila ke Tesco ye puan2.
2. Plaza GM in Jalan Haji Taib
This is my newly found place to shop for my party supplies. Oh my God! Sungguh teruja dengan choices of stuff with the oh so cheap prices. Thanks to a dear friend who runs Razzle Dazzle Party Box yang recommend this place to me. The place reminds me of Pasar Baru in Bandung. A 7 storey building jam packed with people and everything to be bought in bulk. Bukan party supplies je ada. Brooches, tudung, watches, wallets, toys, baju *oh nak list pun dah penat*.
What’s not to like here? Ada. The lifts are slow and usually penuh je. Even the sellers use the customer lifts to load their stocks. Penuh lift dengan berguni2 barang dia je. Don’t even think of taking your strollers here. Babywear please. Even better, don’t bring babies. And to save your wallet, don’t bring kids! IY wanted every little toys he saw. Bank Negara pun boleh bankrap kalau layan IY punya nak nak nak.
We went there searching for stuff to buy for IY’s Birthday Walk. Sadly, I didn’t bring my phone so no pictures lah. Sorry korang. But I have the map though. If I go again, I’ll take pictures ok?
Here I bought the paper bags. Cheapo cheapo I tell you! I can’t review much sebab I didn’t go sendiri. Hubby darling yang tolong pergi belikan. He managed to snap pictures from the outside. And they don’t only sell paper bags. Macam2 lagi ada. Mostly food containers. Check it out ya!
Hope the above helps! Do share if you want to recommend other wholesellers too.
