Heard that government going to build MRT along Jalan Sultan. Hence heritage building on this street as well as part of Chinatown Petaling Street will be teared down to make way for the MRT project. I believe it is a shocking news to Malaysians especially those land owners. Many events and activities have been organized to protest and to garner supports from the public in preserving these heritage buildings.One of the most impressed one was the Merdeka Festival programme "Goodbye KL" on 31st of August and 1st of September. I didn't know about all these happenings until I read a very informative blog of my friend. 

I love to visit historical and cultural places. Hence, my friend and I decided to take a walk around Jalan Sultan and Jalan Petaling, to explore and to take photos before all the heritage buildings gone.


I parked my car at Berjaya Times Square shopping mall. Then to go to Jalan Sultan and Jalan Petaling, we took monorail and LRT to avoid any possible congested traffic around KL area. The route we took: Berjaya Times Square Imbi monorail station  --> Hang Tuah monorail station --> change to Starline LRT and stop in Plaza Rakyat station. Then just a very short walking distance you will reach Jalan Sultan.


Very nice abandoned old building. It just gives me a very special kind of feeling. Not sure if this is one of the heritage building haha. How good if there is tour guide with me to show me all the heritage area as well as to explain and tell me the history :p What I can do is just simply walk and snap -.-



And this building has a very narrow corridor.


Besides the long and narrow corridor, we spotted some good vandalism art drawing on the wall. 


And according to my friend, this is one of the building that going to be teared down. It has been there for more than 100 years.

This is one of the must-stop-by venue to enjoy the creative mural paintings on the wall. 


This mural painting project was coordinated by artist Phillip Wong and it was the highlight of The Star's Preserve Our Heritage campaign.The painting on the wall was also supported by Dulux.


Through the creativity of a group of 60 artists and well-wishers, the dull wall was now full of paintings with message to show how importance it is to preserve heritage areas. Thumbs up!

Can u read the message above?


Last but not least, a photo of me with the mural paintings. I had left my footprints there, what about you?

Remember when I cried to you a thousand times
I told you everything
You know my feelings
It never crossed my mind
That there would be a time
For us to say goodbye
What a big surprise

But I'm not lost
I'm not gone
I haven't forgot

[Chorus:]
These feelings I can't shake no more
These feelings are running out the door
I can feel it falling down
And I'm not coming back around
These feelings I can't take no more
This emptiness in the bottom drawer
It's getting harder to pretend
And I'm not coming back around again

Remember when...
I remember when it was together till the end
Now I'm alone again
Where do I begin?
I cried a little bit
You died a little bit
Please say there's no regrets
And say you won't forget
But I'm not lost

I'm not gone
I haven't forgot

[Chorus:]
These feelings I can't shake no more
These feelings are running out the door
I can feel it falling down
And I'm not coming back around
These feelings I can't take no more
This emptiness in the bottom drawer
It's getting harder to pretend
And I'm not coming back around again
Remember when...

That was then
Now it's the end
I'm not coming back
I can't pretend
Remember When

[Chorus:]
These feelings I can't shake no more
These feelings are running out the door
I can feel it falling down
And I'm not coming back around
These feelings I can't take no more
This emptiness in the bottom drawer
It's getting harder to pretend
And I'm not coming back around again..

Paid a visit to Malaysia first and only McCafe which located at Kota Damansara few months back. I didn't know there is this McCafe thingy until a friend informed me. It attracts my attention hence I was there to try their coffee. 

A very big McCafe wallpaper welcoming you at the entrance McDonalds. 


And this is how McCafe looks like. See picture below for a closer shot.


Is the picture blur? Wanted to show you a closer shot but I think the picture turns out to be quite blur. I really should get myself a new and better camera, perhaps a DSLR. 


These are the teas which McCafe selling. I don't like these type of teas hence I didn't try.



These are some mugs and coffee beans display. Honestly speaking, I like the design of the McCafe mugs. Hope I can bring one home haha. 


Surprisingly, in addition to coffee and tea, they are selling some cakes, muffins and cookies too. Check out their website for more details.


And these are the three drinks that we ordered. From the left, iced hazelnut latte, iced mocha and mocha frappe. Mocha frappes tastes better than the other two. 


Last but not least, a photo before we left McCafe.


Have u experience their coffee yet? 

Till then. Stay tuned ♥
