Come to Klang, located in Selangor! The thriving urban town is full of modern facilities but has refined attractive pockets of traditional and environmental charm. Klang is the place where I was born. I should call this place as my hometown or my sweet home.

Come to Klang, located in Selangor! The thriving urban town is full of modern facilities but has refined attractive pockets of traditional and environmental charm. Klang is the place where I was born. I should call this place as my hometown or my sweet home.

What is so special about it? What is the best food to eat? How do I come here? I can tell you everything all about Klang if you want to ask me personally. From Kuala Lumpur (capital of Malaysia), you can take a public bus or a train (Keretapi Tanah Melayu – KTM) just only for 32km distance. That means you will just only spend about 20 minutes journey. If you are a food connoisseur, then you are in the right place now! One of the most famous Chinese-Hokkien’s food is “Bah Kut Teh” (Pork Rib Tea).

The citizens from other places around are coming to Klang just only for having this meal. It’s cooked in a strong, dark herbal stock and served together with a clay pot. Many locals and especially my grandpa will stick at Bah Kut Teh’s restaurant for having a breakfast every morning. My family and I also sometime will get-together on Sundays just only for Bah Kut Teh. Next, you know what? I have never been lomoing in Klang until the day when my fellow Lomographers came here. I took my opportunity to bring them to the best street in town.

The Little India, located in Jalan Tengku Kelana where it is just after crossing the Klang river bridge if you are walking from the town. We, the local people used to call this street the Hindu’s street. Furthermore, it is the biggest Indian street in Malaysia. Many Hindus are spending their time here for shopping during the Deepavali festival. The street is heavily crowded that time. You can buy Indian costumes (saris), stainless steel pots, colourful necklaces, Indian delicacies, gold and flowers.

That day I just only did a few shots because of the weather wasn’t so good. After that, of course I took my fellows to Bah Kut Teh’s restaurant and let them taste how delicious is the local speciality. Our LomoOuting was ended when the rain started falling. Besides the food and shopping, what else could you see in Klang nowadays? Let me tell you. During the 8th day of Chinese New Year festival, all Hokkien people are praying “Tian Kong” (Jade-Emperor, Supreme God of Chinese Folk Religion) for commemorating the birth of the Lord. The night and dark sky are turning into the colourful sky just after 12am. Remember! You will have a chance to enjoy watching the most beautiful firecrackers just only in Klang. The crackers will be everywhere and will not stop until 3 to 4 am.
