Kampung Hakka Mantin - Part 3

I am attracted to old architecture. Many Catholic churches from the turn of the century incorporate neo-Gothic design with tall spires and ample windows and vents for an airy interior.

Buka Puasa At KLCC Park with the Azri family

Since I was at the Petronas Twin Towers, I went for a walk at KLCC park after I finished my business. Wonderful to be able to enjoy the sunset and changing hues of the sky.

On the way back, I stumbled upon a Malay family breaking fast at one corner of the park.

Naturally, I asked permission to photograph them. I explained that it is a rare and blessed moment to have culture, architecture and a dusk sky so beautifully juxtaposed. The Azri Family graciously agreed.

The 5-Foot-Way or Kaki Lima

The five-foot-way or 'kaki lima' is a colonial legacy from the time when front of shops were required by law to have a 5-foot wide walkway. The practical and functional architectural design element lives on in the old shops of Tanjung Malim and many other places.

According to Wikipedia, the requirement was first specified in the Stamford Raffles Town Act of 1822 for Singapore. It applied also to Malaya and Brunei .

Teng Wun The Famous Cake Shop In KKB

During the few days I spent at Kuala Kubu Bharu, I asked the town folk as to which is the most famous institution. Famous, as in well-known to stopover visitors, tourists and outsiders.

The answer, invariably, is always Teng Wun the Hainanese cake shop. Cakes are not the main magnet of the shop, though. It is their kaya (coconut egg jam) puffs; allegedly the world's most awesome. The world here, means the handful of countries that sell this unique pastry.
