As usual, there are these stalls set up to cater to the influx of visitors. The usual, food stalls, flowers and this year, an influx of teddy bears, from small to huge... with prices that was quite high for me.Stories I heard was that the fee paid to have the stalls was perceived as high, not many visitors as last few years, the concert did not have that many people, and there was less promotion. I just went for a cursory walk, met with Prof Dimbab and Prof Abu, had a drink and chatted but it was just too hot. Thought of buying a rose for my wife, but it was RM8 for one stalk, so decided not to... ha ha ha. Stingy...
