The Weekend Flea Market is a weekend event at Permy Mall, a marketplace where a selection of used and new items can be found. The market starts at 10am in the weekend mornings and ends at 9.30pm. The Weekend Flea Market is held every Saturday and Sunday.
According to local legends, in the early 1900s, as Miri was seeing a boom in population as the result of the discovery of oil, a mysterious epidemic spread, wiping out a large number of the population in what was then a very small fishing village. The local chinese residing in Miri at the time believed the diseased was caused by "evil spirits", and turned to a wise man, known as "Chan Chak", who suggested that a monk be commissioned to appease these "spirits".
