From the garish banner outside his store to the assortment of oddly-stacked curio inside, Perniagaan Kong Hui Sui Ye in Ipoh, Perak, is clearly a reflection of its owner.

Lean Hung Meng is as colourful as his wares. His inventory mainly includes vinyl records and its related ancillaries, such as turntables (record players), speakers and spares, including thermionic valves, stylus cartridges and more. The shop also sells statues of Chinese deities, ceramic dining sets and vintage clocks.
