Jalan Raja Chulan

Jalan Sultan continues until Jalan Imbi and now joins with Jalan Tun Razak. However we'll just turn off to Jalan Raja Chulan and walk to Jalan Pudu.

Istana Hotel.

Istana is Malay for palace. We used to have fun with the confusion it caused when this hotel first opened.

Wisma Lim Foo Yong.

One of the earlier high-rise buildings along this road. The ground floor used to be occupied by the Fitzpatrick's Supermarket.

Menara Affin. This is where I work.

The Weld.

It is now owned by Great Eastern Insurance. Up to the early 1980's this used to be the location of Weld Supermarket, the premier Supermarket in KL operating from a 2-storey building. Cold Storage and Giant supermarkets have had an outlet here at different times but closed due to poor support.

The KL Tower, towering above the rain forest.

An old government building. I'm not sure what it's used for these days.

This row of run-down houses used to be known as the Eurasian Row during it's heydays.
