Bukit Bintang meets Imbi...

 As Jalan Bukit Bintang joins Jalan Imbi, this building has been converted to a North Indian fine dining restaurant.



Across Jalan Bukit Bintang is the Culan Towers which joins the Royal Culan, a new hotel in the area.

There are many International restaurants here.



Western and Asian food is available.


Further along the road is the LTAT building.  LTAT (Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera) or the Armed Forces Fund Board manages the provident fund for members of the Malaysian Armed Forces.

A newly renovated temple is our first building along Jalan Imbi.
 The colors are bright and lively.



Next we have the Dorsett Regency, one of the International hotel chains.



Next door is the Ritz Carlton.

I'm not sure of the nature of business here, but it has managed to preserve this old building.
 
This traditional house has managed to survive in this fast developing neighborhood.  The Baba-Nonya influence can be noted in this building.


Jalan Imbi is also home to this Chapel.
 

The Chapel.

The beauty of this lovely tree is marred by the indiscriminate dumping of rubbish here. 



Shop-houses still stand along this stretch of Jalan Imbi.
 

A shop selling Chinese snacks.
 


This restaurant has not heard of the 'When the buying stops, the killing can' slogan that is making the international scene.
 


The famous grilled meat and meat floss supplier in Jalan Imbi.
 
Karma free food is also available here.



Imbi Plaza, the poor cousin of Sungai Wang and BB Plazas.  This used to be the place to shop for PCs and computer accessories, that is before Low Yat came into the picture.
 

The pride of Imbi, the Berjaya Times Square.
 

If only all buildings were well maintained....?
