History of Chinatown

Posted by on 18 March 2011 | 0 Comments

This introduction is taken from an article written by June Chua - a Malaysian born Chinese currently living in Canada. I chanced upon her writings and following her accomplishments I have come to admire her work, most of which is nothing short of being remarkable. Although I would not know whether she would still consider herself a Malaysian, I nevertheless feel a pinch of pride in knowing that she is a fellow countryman (person) amidst the social and political humiliation Malaysians have been subjected to in recent years.

KLCC Park and Playground

A little known recreational facility

Most people would associate KLCC with the Petronas Twin Towers and the Suria Shopping Centre. When they converted the old race course into a modern complex for shopping, conventions, hotels and office buildings the architects have retained a green belt which is now a playground and park for people to go and relax or exercise.

Take a stroll along Jalan Bukit Bintang and you find a host of massage and foot reflexology centres. It is quite the thing to do after a hard day of walking and sightseeing. You will be accosted along the Bukit Bintang stretch by dozens of ladies marketing their massage services but you will do well to just stroll the length of the street before deciding on the centre of your choice. Check out the prices as well!
