PANDAN TRAFFIC PANDEMONIUM
Pandan Jaya is a township in Kuala Lumpur that used to be a little difficult to access. One needed to travel to the Kampung Pandan roundabout, go along Jalan Kampung Pandan and make a right turn to Jalan Perkasa which joins Jalan Pandan 1.

THE SQUATTER EFFECT
The third and fourth miles of Jalan Cheras used to be populated by squatters. As with many parts of Kuala Lumpur that we toured so far in our series, squatter areas and slums are usually found near riverbanks.

PEEL ROAD
In the early days of Kuala Lumpur, Pudu was considered to be one of its boundaries. Jalan Cheras begins at this border and was part of the trunk road to Kajang and further south.

INTO JALAN CHERAS
Our feng shui tour has so far taken us around the inner city of Kuala Lumpur. We saw how the city prospered due to its unique location within the embracing arms of mountains off the Titiwangsa Range, at Bukit Tinggi to be precise.

CHOW KIT ROAD, CHOW KIT ROAD
When we started our tour of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Raja Laut some weeks ago, we covered a brief history of Batu Road. To recap, this road was named after Batu Village up north near Batu Caves.

CAUGHT BETWEEN TWO RIVERS
Last week, we looked at several properties along Jalan Raja Laut right up to the intersection with Jalan Sultan Ismail. We discussed how this area is actually sitting between two rivers – Gombak and Klang – as they flowed into a confluence.

JALAN RAJA LAUT
Back when Kuala Lumpur was a small mining town, one of the tin mining areas was in Kampung Batu, located near Batu Caves. This was such a prominent area that a river was named after it, and the road that links this village to town was called Batu Road.

MERDEKA SQUARE
Dataran Merdeka has been a focal point for many events in Malaysia. This was the historic site where the Union Jack flag was lowered and the Malayan flag first hoisted at midnight on August 31, 1957, our Independence Day.
For many years since then, it was the venue for our National Day Parade on Merdeka Day, until Putrajaya was built and the annual celebrations were moved there.

IPOH ROAD Part 2
In our previous instalment, we began our tour of Jalan Ipoh and got as far as Kampung Kasipillay. As you drive towards the city centre, you will notice that buildings on the left tend to do better than the right.

more

A feng shui tour of the Klang Valley #25
IPOH ROAD
The North-South Expressway dramatically shortens the travelling time between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh. The old trunk roads would stretch the journey to five hours or longer, depending on the time and traffic. The roads passed through small towns such as Kampar, Tapah, Slim River and Tanjung Malim, which thrived from the business brought by the travellers.

RIVERBANK PARKS
At every opportunity I get, I urge town planners to consider how nature works and adapt to it to create a harmonious living environment. After all, nature’s model has worked successfully for several millennia.

BUFFALOES TO BRICKS
Back when Kuala Lumpur was still a small town, goods were transported to and from Port Klang via the Klang River by boat or on land. Travellers walked on foot or used bullock carts through jungles, staying close to the river.

OLD CHINATOWN
Over the past few issues, we took a stroll down memory lane and explored the older part of Kuala Lumpur. Our tour stopped somewhere in the middle of Jalan Tun H.S. Lee at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple.

HEYDAYS OF CHINATOWN
In our last article, we covered a little of Kuala Lumpur’s history and how the early town centre originated from trading outposts which now form Chinatown. The personification of Chinatown, as promulgated by the Tourism Ministry, is Jalan Petaling.

THE LEGACY OF CHINATOWN
Kuala Lumpur started as a mining town, set up to provide supplies to miners in the area and to facilitate trading. It was blessed with having a wide and deep river that stretched from Port Klang up to present-day Jalan Ampang, where the AIA Building is located.

MERDEKA MEMORIES
Stadium Merdeka was a purpose-built facility and holds great significance to Malaysians. When Tunku Abdul Rahman got the agreement of the British government to grant Malaya independence, he had the stadium constructed so that it can be used as the venue for the historic Declaration of Independence.

REMEMBERING LOKE YEW
Our feng shui tour of Kuala Lumpur last week left us at the end of Jalan Pudu. This week, we make our way back to the city centre via one of the outer roads, namely Jalan Loke Yew and Jalan Maharajalela.

more

A feng shui tour of the Klang Valley #16
MARKET ROAD
As we move further along Jalan Pudu, we come to an intersection with Jalan Sungai Besi and Jalan Pasar. Jalan Pasar is connected to Pudu Plaza via Jalan Landak, and sits on higher ground. The sloping terrain here and on Jalan Seladang is very obvious.

PUDU PUZZLE Part 2
The Pudu area of Kuala Lumpur has a very interesting landform. It is a basin-shaped valley which collects pools of energy – and water when it rained. We humans tend to congregate in areas that contain such slow-moving, gentle and homogenous energy.

PUDU PUZZLE
Previously, we discussed a small section of Jalan Pudu as our feng shui tour took us from the heart of Kuala Lumpur out towards the Pudu district. A significant landmark of this road is the Tung Shin Hospital.

PUDU ALLURE
Kuala Lumpur comprises several areas that were formerly small towns in their own right. One of the more vibrant towns was Pudu. It was connected to Kuala Lumpur town centre in the old days via Pudoh Street which was subsequently renamed Pudu Road in 1960. Today, we know it as Jalan Pudu.

THE EMBRACING JALAN TUN RAZAK
Jalan Tun Razak is an important part of Kuala Lumpur’s road system. As the middle ring road surrounding the city, it is responsible for drawing huge volumes of traffic from the city centre, or help travellers bypass the centre if they wish to drive from one end to the other.

JALAN IMBI: ECLIPSED BY ITS STARRY NEIGHBOUR
No tour of the Golden Triangle can be complete without a look at Jalan Imbi, an area often eclipsed by the more vibrant Jalan Bukit Bintang that parallels it. The road begins at the intersection of Jalan Hang Tuah and Jalan Pudu from Plaza Berjaya, and stretches up to Jalan Bukit Bintang near the Dorsett Regency hotel.

JALAN SULTAN ISMAIL: THE HOTEL ROW
Jalan Sultan Ismail, between the Klang River and Jalan Imbi, is well known and recognised for its row of five-star hotels. By day, it is a busy thoroughfare with several prominent office towers located here. By night, it is a popular area for entertainment outlets.

DERAILED BY TRAINS?
As a city grows, traffic woes become a norm. Every major city in the world grapples with traffic jams and attempts to implement ways to reduce congestion. These could be through legislation, such as prohibiting single-occupant vehicles from entering the city at certain times, imposing extra charges for entering the central business districts.

Mixed Fortunes of Bukit Bintang
Properties from a Feng Shui Perspective: Part 8
IN our last article, we showed that Jalan Bukit Bintang is actually a ridge with low ground on either side: one towards Jalan Raja Chulan and the other to Jalan Imbi. Despite the constant streams of people walking up and down this street, we figured that businesses may not be as rosy as they appear.

Ups and Downs of Bukit Bintang
Properties from a Feng Shui Perspective: Part 7
IN our previous article, we took a tour of Jalan Raja Chulan, which ended at the intersection with Jalan Bukit Bintang. Jalan Bukit Bintang has an illustrious past and our tour today will examine the unique landform that impacted this “Golden Mile” of Kuala Lumpur.  

more
Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 6:ROYAL ROAD
Our feng shui tour of properties today will track along Jalan Raja Chulan in Kuala Lumpur. We covered a portion of it in a previous article where the road bordered Bukit Nanas.
Raja Chulan was a member of the Perak royal family who played a part in the formation of the Federated Malay States (Persekutuan Tanah Melayu) in 1896 which led to the eventual creation of Malaysia. YAM Raja Sir Chulan ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdullah Muhammad Shah Habibullah was also a member of the Federal Law Committee in 1924, way before Independence.

Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 5:KUALA LUMPUR’S GOLDEN TRIANGLE
The Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur is one of the busiest and most highly valued prime properties in the Klang Valley. Despite the perception that anything constructed in this area will automatically flourish, we beg to differ. You can still find failed projects. Some failed to live to their promises and have become eyesores. It is possible that the sky-high rentals could be a factor that led to many a business closing shop and relocating. It is also possible that traffic congestion prompted businesses to move to the outskirts or nearby Petaling Jaya. Maybe it is the poor infrastructure – erratic public transport, limited (and expensive!) parking, a lack of sheltered walkways – that contributed to some properties being poorly patronised..
more
Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 4:KLANG RIVER AND THE K.L.C.C
In a previous article, we discussed the four parameters that come into play in feng shui. We first look for the dragon or mountain, then the river followed by meridian points and screens or shields. Peninsular Malaysia has eight mountain ranges descending from the mighty Himalayas. The largest of these is the Titiwangsa range. At Bukit Tinggi, the dragon branches out into two directions: northwards to Rawang and curving back to Meru in Klang; and southwards into Cheras, IOI Mall in Puchong and finally Pulau Indah in Klang.

Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 3: Evaluation of Landforms
An evaluation of landforms, from a feng shui perspective, concerns four parameters: the mountains from which energy originates; the presence of rivers; the location of meridian points; and the presence of protective barriers across the rivers.

Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 2: Living Star ( Chinese )
早在数千年以前,从事风水的先辈和学者即已认识到,人们的周遭有能量存在,他们尝试把这些能量区分和归类。可笑的是,他们的努力被视为迷信的行为。 这也难怪,试想想,要怎么样向活在150年之前的人解释�电流� 是怎么回事呢?在使用煤油灯的年代,谁听过�电� ?

Klang Valley Feng Shui Series: Article 2: Living Star ( English )
Thousands of years ago, sages and scholars already recognised the presence of energy surrounding us and attempted to categorise it. It is ironic that their work has been relegated to "superstitious" beliefs. Try describing electricity to someone who lived 150 years ago. Back in the days of gas lamps, it was unheard of...
