If you’re wondering what the PJ Fair is all about, it’s an annual festival held to celebrate PJ, it’s residents, and to foster a tight-knit bond between Malaysians of all cultures and races. Lots of things to look forward to at the fair, from food trucks, fashion shows, and live music to flea markets, kids games, and a cultural parade. They’ll even be attempting to break the record for ‘most number of people in a Wefie’ by the Malaysian Book Of Records! Check out their website here for more info!

If you’re planning to travel within Petaling Jaya this weekend, save yourself from the inevitable jams and take note of the roads and timings above!
