D19ital Mall aka Digital Mall @ USJ 19

I was happy when I was told by a peer who lives in USJ area that the new Digital Mall at USJ 19 is now open. Wow! Another options for tech geeks like me beside the IT section in the malls like Sunway Pyramid and Mid Valley, the blacklisted Digital Mall at section 14 and Low Yat.

On one of the unusual days that the roads around KL were cleared with no congestion, I detoured to the mall to find out more since I have some spare time to lepak for a while...


I gotta make a U turn...


I parked my car and walked into the mall...


Very disappointing. You can see there are not many shops open and many shop lots are vacant. Even if the shops are in business, no stock on the shelf, so likely you can't get what you want off the shelf. There was only one store looked promising...


Again, it's like a stationery store, the shelves were full with different CDR, CDRW, DVDR, mices and keyboards etc. Very disappointing. Who would buy from here if Carrefour at the same building offers lower price for such stationary?

There were many stripes like this...


So perhaps give other stores and the mall another 2 3 months to be fully operational. We shall see its survival or RIP in 2009, in this tough time.

Oh ya. I advise not to park your car in the basement, especially the ladies. It's too scary to park there and I wonder if the basement would flood during rainy day. There are open parking lots outside, that's safer for you and your vehicle...


Just don't turn into the basement car park. You can enter the open car park from the path beside basement entrance. Oh, parking still free as of now.

Here's the location, available in MFM latest map. Typo on Nineteen. GPS Coordinates N3 01.966 E101 35.329...
