Gaya Street Sunday Market

Day 4 (Sunday, 5 March 2017) – The street in front of the Jesselton Hotel and a couple of the streets next to it, are transformed into a street market every Sunday morning so, after breakfast, we went shopping!

I bought a fabulous pearl necklace that looked like one that the woman in front of me on the Silk Air flight from Singapore to Kota Kinabalu was wearing.  It consists of big, baroque, pearls in slightly different colours – some are a bit greyish,  some quite pink, and some are white to cream.  One has a big flaw.  They were quite cheap (250 MYR) but I think they are genuine freshwater pearls.

I also bought some fridge magnets and bookmarks from a Bornean artist who describes his style as “naive”.
