There is a place in Kuala Lumpur Chinatown where we can buy cheap and affordable flowers of many varieties for any occasion. Well, I mean, most of the time ...
For Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year season, the prices are expected to follow market supply and demand.
|2. Flower street in KL Chinatown|
Flower Street of Kuala Lumpur Chinatown is located along Jalan Hang Lekir, starting from the junction in front of Hong Leong Bank, along Hotel Malaya and ends at wholesaler Weng Hoa Floral Boutique. The many individual stalls and florists here sell freshly cut flowers in loose stalks, bouquets, stands and all kinds of floral arrangements.
Further up is the glutton street with all the delicious food.
KL Chinatown is listed in every tourist guide to Malaysia. This is a place where east meets west, a melting pot of cultures. Centuries old prewar shophouses and ancient temples stand side-by-side with modern highrises. There are as many tourists as there are locals. There is also an increasing number of foreigners from Indonesia, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Cambodia working at the stalls here.

|3. Gerbera daisies|
If we wish to buy fresh flowers in bulk at cheap prices we buy them from the wholesaler, but if we need to get flowers in small quantities like 1 or 2 stalks, a bunch or individualised bouquet, we select from the mini stalls here.
For Valentine's Day, chrysanthemums are not as popular as roses, gerbera daisies and lilies.
While white and yellow chrysanthemums are more suited for funerals and prayers, the spider/coral chrysanthemums are really beautiful and special.

Flowers that will melt a girl's heart!
Hence, why buy fake ones when real flowers are so fresh and fabulously lovely?
Anyone can catch your eye,
but it takes someone special to catch your heart.

According our newspaper reports, Malaysians prefer roses but sunflowers and lilies are most popular in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.
