Centre for Asian Photographers is no longer – it has moved to its new home within PJ Live Arts, and it also has a new name, The Corner Shop, which is a scrapbooker’s seventh heaven, stacked with stamps, stickers and other supplies.

Petaling Jaya

A relatively new commercial development in the heart of ‘Old PJ’, Jaya One has an impressive collection of retail outlets including the vibrant PJ Live Arts group, a non-profit organisation that uses art as a platform to raise funds for local charities and community outreach projects. For those looking for the new ‘it’ café, there is The Bee, where hipsters eat Guiness-flavoured ice cream and local indie acts perform at its open mic nights.
