    Weather & Planning

    by wondersF Written Nov 29, 2010

    Favorite thing: The raining in the afternoon [daily] is still acceptable as you have a chance to plan and schedule your activities. The last few days appeared OK, gloomy at times in the morning, then scattered rain, small ones.
    But today, it was bad gloomy the whole morning and afternoon light showers for long hours.
    So you out for walks or shooting! What I would do, make very early start. Then the good times for the rest of the day, if it comes are bonus.
    I can tell you this because I travel far each day to shoot pix of birds. I have to make that decision each morning. Shall I leave home?

    Fondest memory: Colourful people and their customs and of course being a local, I missed most - will the food from the street vendors.

    It is the same type of food, available almost in every corner of the west coast peninsula. But each vendor prepares them with variations. I love those in Kuala Lumpur, like wise I love those in Ipoh and Penang. Without any preference on any particular one.

    Favorite thing: Do visit Sultan abdul Samad building at night. The building is decorated with a lot of light bulbs.

    Fondest memory: during night, that's the only time you can walk in the middle of busy road. The road is blocked and you could take pictures sitting on the road.

    Favorite thing: Overlooking the Merdeka Square, Sultan Abdul Samad Building was built in 1897 to house the various administrative departments of the British Government at the time. Its Moorish features have attracted the interest of visiting historians and students of architecture. Today, the building houses the Supreme and High Courts and Infokraf, a centre for Malaysian handicrafts

    Favorite thing: photograph the beautiful Sultan Abdul Samad Building. This is definitely one of Kuala Lumpur's most famous landmark and it certainly bears great testimony to its intricate Moorish design and architecture.
