Malaysian me?

Days like this reminds me so much of why I left the corporate life.. I was stuck on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman for half an hour during rush hour. I really thank God I did not have to go thru this everyday... Its crazy. and  I am going to admit that Malaysian drivers are impatient, terrible drivers.. except me ....:)

Anyway, being stuck in the traffic gave me the opportunity to look around. You know, I was born here, lived here, raised here but have never been to alto of places. I have never walked down Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, or Jalan Raja Laut or Jalan Tun Ismail. I have never walked thru Chow Kit Road. I can't even remember if I have been to Pertama Complex or Sogo or even walk in Dataran Merdeka. Sigh... and I call myself a Malaysian.

I forgot how beautiful our country is. Rich in history and  culture. I manged to snap some shots. Sorry for its blur-ness as I was holding my phone with one hand and the other was on the steering wheel.

Malaysian flag flying proudly at Merdeka Square. 


Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad. See the pinkish colour lights against the window. I think they set up some colour lighting thingie there and it changes colours once in a while. I should go check it out at night. I'm sure it will be beautiful.. 


I think this is the National Mosque. or part of Kuala Lumpur Train Station. .. Don't really know. I'm such a failure as a Malaysian, aren't I? I wanted to take a nice picture but the stupid bus came and block my view :(


I think its time for me to start visiting Kuala Lumpur. Anyone wants to join me for some tourist-y thing?
