    Hi Sam,

    Welcome to CPF
    Nice lights you have there...

    I reside in KL and have a bunch of flashaholic friends. We don't get together much but I do occasionally meet some of them just to pass them some stuff Perhaps you can organise a meeting, I'm pretty sure many of us will turn up

    greetings, I am from PJ even though I don't live in Malaysia anymore. Just so happens to be here in Malaysia at the moment for vacation. Would be cool to catch up with some fellow flashaholics...

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the warm welcome.. I'm not really big on flashlights and was actually a member of this forum under a different username some years back.. I collect and use knives and I must say that I have more sharp things rather than the bright ones.. Speaking of a get-together, my schedule is purty free on next Saturday.. Maybe we can hook up for lunch.. That way, I can formally introduce myself..



    I use to toy around by switching body parts..



    I carry at least two flashlights daily - incandescant and non-incandescant



    When it comes to high-performance lights, I am a sucker for Surefires..



    Lately, I've developed a fetish for headlamps..

    Sam

    Hi there samosaurus,

    I'm from ampang and actually just joined this forum. Its good to hear that there are some enthusiast in and around KL. In fact, I do use alot of lites in my work and I owned a number of maglites (Solitaire, 2AA, 2AAA, 4D) until a few days ago when I stumbled across the Surefire models at Great Eastern Mall looking for some maglite bulbs. After deliberating for a few days,I bought the E1L as I wanted to test an LED lite. And I'm hooked on them.
    I'm just wondering where is the best shop in KL for accessories?

    Thanks.........

    Hi samo,

    Bladeforums not exciting enough for you ;-)

    Jumpstart, I'm based in Ampang as well. Don't bother buying anything from KL shops -- they are way overpriced. Look to eBay for bargains or check out the dealers who hang around here at CPF. I recommend Lighthound -- his prices are reasonable and he ships to Malaysia without charging an arm and a leg for shipping.

    Hi! every1. I'm new. Is good to find some flashlight collectors in Malaysia. Recently, i am doing research on the web for lights and bumped into this amazing flashlight - G&P Scorpion Series R500. On the reveiw on www.flashlightreviews.com it shows a great results from the experts. Even checked on this forum and found out many already purchase the flashlight. The users are happy with the outcome.

    For me, I'm going to get one soon online.

    Jumpstat:

    Thanks for the info. Other than Surefire u saw in Great Eastern Mall, is there any other brands there?

    Yeah, my dad calls me a freak, gf calls me gila babi! But guess what?

    Now she uses my HDS U60, specifies what brightness level she wants to operate the light at, tells me the next light I give to her in the future must be incan, specifies the beam pattern for it, and asks me to get one for her dad too. I guess staying at the villages in Kelantan helps. :P
