By The Book: Riwayat, The Newest Bookstore On The Block

Located in the heart of Chinatown, Riwayat is the latest independent bookstore to open its doors in Kuala Lumpur. We catch up with one of its founders, Engku Roestam Alias, on what we can expect from the store, and what they hope to contribute to the Malaysian culture scene. We close off the conversation with a discussion on the different experiences offered by independent bookshops versus big chains.
