Sir Edward Gent Statue

by suebradshaw

I am planning to travel to KL and am keen to see the statue of my grand-father, Sir Edward Gent, the British Governor in Malaya up to his death in 1948. Are you able to give me the location? Many thanks, sue Bradshaw

Hello Sue,

It is a honour that you're here in VT and wanting to trace your grandfather's legacy. I do not know if there is a statue of him. We have extremely very few statues in Malaysia unlike some other countries. You might have to contact the Malaysian Tourism Office or better still, the British High Commission in KL to find out. Do hope someone else knows. I do recall his name in the history books and you might find mention of him in the museum. The country has moved forward for so many years from colonialism that you can hardly see traces of it in the bigger cities esp KL but you might find more in more remote places. We hardly have old buildings which is a shame. Just a handful sparsely reflecting British architecture. Hope you do get more useful information soon.All the best :)

never heard of it.

i agree with the above answer. we don't have many (almost equivalent to nil) statue here. since many muslim here, except from religious purpose, statue is indirectly prohibited (i guess).

i wish we have one, for your sake :)

Unlike Sir Henry Gurney, it is hard to see the legacy of Sir Gent now. Current ruling party is the same party that against Sir Gent's Malayan Union.

We named many roads, a famous school and various other beautiful location after Sir Gurney, but it's hard to find anything on Sir Gent.

The School opened by Sir Gent are now become a University, without his name on it (Universiti Putra Malaysia). This is to give one of the example to show how hard it is to see the legacy of Sir Gent.

But to see some pictures and videos, you can go to Arkib Negara. One of the famous picture is of Lady Gent during Malaysia's declaration of independent.

I'm afraid it is not a Malaysian custom to have statues of historical figures :(

Travel Tips for Kuala Lumpur

land of great VTers

by ellielou

Meet VTers and eat! My first full day, I went out to the suburbs and met Wild_Orchid (aka Aunt Agony) who picked me up from the train station. The good Aunty had promised me delicious satay, but the place was closed, so we ended up with good Chinese food instead. We ordered, and Airasia/Lee came to join us....

Lovely... I met the best VTers and ate really terrific food with them.....here are some of them, and what we ate.

China town is amazing. You...

by Vilhelm

China town is amazing. You must go there just to experience the atmosphere.
Go see the Twin Towers. The view from the top in unbelievable (make sure that there is no fog when you go up there, that sort of ruins it for you) The people are really nice. Food is great.

Monorail train

by momossa

If you want to take a free quick tour in KL you can take the monorail train.
Since the railways are high you can see KL from top and without getting in the traffic jams. But select a time beyond rush hours to avoid crowd and to allow nice view.
The fare is very cheap and you can cover the whole line which spread across most of KL for less than 5 Ringitts.

Street vendors

by l_joo

Street vendors are belong to General Tip because we have so many in the city centre and also out of city centres. They sell anything from street to street. The one in the photo is selling perfumes, branded perfumes. I'm not sure whether this is legal or not legal, but as long as the street is there, Street vendors are there. A true general tip.

Dresscode

by diggingdeep

You can wear whatever you want in KL but do be aware of certain places. The weather is roasting hot here and most people go around with khaki shorts(my fav!) and T-shirts but if you plan to visit the mosque or holy places, it would be more appropriate to wear something that err...cover up. No, you dont have to buy a burqa. Wear jeans or long pants instead of shorts.
