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.

A little known recreational facility

Most people would associate KLCC with the Petronas Twin Towers and the Suria Shopping Centre.

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.

Check out the prices as well!
