Kuala Lumpur, 11 April 2018 – As Malaysia gears up for the upcoming polls, some entrepreneurial and enthusiastic Malaysians have taken to selling politically-inspired items on Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing mobile classified marketplaces.
Here are five quirky items we found on the marketplace to help stoke that election fever ahead of the upcoming 14th General Election:
1) Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad’s Horse Riding Silver Statue
Weighing around 3kg, a rare riding statue of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad is a masterpiece created and produced Wizart Studio Sdn Bhd out of respect for the former Prime Minister of Malaysia. One was later presented to Tun Dr Mahatir as a memento.
“This is a one-of-a-kind statue that my studio produced to present to Tun Dr Mahathir himself. There are only 2 copies in the world! One is with Tun Dr. Mahathir, and the other is on sale on Carousell,” said Dina Yahya (Carousell Store: _min_onepitstop).
2) Vintage Merdeka Memorabilia
48-year-old political memorabilia collector Adrian Ung started collecting since 1997 and now counts over 200 items in his collection ranging from books, statements, mugs, plaques, newspapers, flyers and posters. Fascinated by its nostalgic value, he continues to scout across the world for priceless Malaysian political memorabilia.
“I have always been fascinated by vintage items. I zoomed in on Merdeka and Malaya-era items as they are scarce, especially to Malaysians. I normally find the older pieces more interesting, which is why I normally collect items from the 50s to 80s era or earlier. I hunt for them online and in flea markets all over Malaysia & Singapore,” said Adrian (Carousell Store: nicimeow)
