Turtle shaped souvenirs made from seashells spotted. Needless to say, they are too adorable and unique to resist and I ended up gaving them all a home.

Some stalls over here in Pasar Payang are tourist trap and they may sell some items more expensive than they should, so to be on the safe side, always bargain with the seller for the lowest price before you make a purchase.
