A black and white concept of this designer bag stall. Something unique in this stall is that the designer will personally draw a bag cover on the spot for you. Not a random drawing but a figurine of yourself! It’s definitely unique as there is only one piece in the whole world.

In a nutshell, I find that the foods tasted pretty normal and over-priced. However the arts corner is great and not to be missed. P.S. I have spent more time browsing the arts corner than foods.
