Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur

The Sultan Street is located near the famous Petaling Street (China Town) of the capital city of Malaysia. Many peoples walked on this street everyday or occationally whilst on their way to the LRT station (Light Rail Transit) or on their way to the China Town, but had ignored the beauty of this street.

Bird’s-eye view of Sultan Street:



The Sultan Street is located near the famous Petaling Street (China Town) of the capital city of Malaysia. The street surrounded the south and east sides of the China Town. Many people walked on this street everyday or occasionally whilst on their way to the LRT station (Light Rail Transit) or on their way to the China Town, but had ignored the beauty of this street. At least I’m one of them until I had decided to slow down my pace and to trigger my shutters.

Rolleiflex Automat’s album:

I believed that this street though not being concerned and valued by most of the tourists as the China Town, but the street did had its historical value as it co-existed with the China Town since the early development stage of Kuala Lumpur in middle 19th century. In addition, the street is always being misperceived as part of the China Town. At such, the buildings are quite old as well especially the shop houses. In my opinion, the billboards hanged on the shop houses are resembled to the street of Hong Kong, and those billboards did decorated the street beautifully. That day I walked on the street in the morning whilst there were less crowd and vehicles, but with the advantage of morning’s sunlight and the faces of old folks lived near the street.

    Pre-war shoplots on Jalan Petaling & Jalan Sultan, some of which are more than a century old, will be torn down to make way for an underground MRT line. Acquisition notices have been served and a famous Malaysian tourist landmark known all over the world will have its landscape changed. Most of us here have been here for decades, some close to a century even. Generation after generation, we have toiled, worked and preserved this place and made it into what it is today. Soon, Yook Woo Hin where KL residents will fondly remember stopping by for a 'pau' or Chinese steamed bun on the way to school, Yan Keng the tailor who made our country's first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman his coat and the quaint and rustic Lok Ann Hotel which has been in business since 1957 will be no more. We are not against development, in fact the MRT line will make it even easier for tourists and Malaysians alike to visit Jalan Petaling & Jalan Sultan. We are however, and this is important, against the arbitrary acquisition of the property where we've been operating our businesses on for years. The line runs underground anyway so we do not see why the acquisition is even required in the first place. We just want to make a living here in this place we quite literally call home. Please help support our cause to raise awareness about our plight! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Jalan-Petaling-Jalan-Sultan/200501466674322?sk=wall
