Our neighbour is having a pre-wedding dinner party outdoor, and I guess it's part of the chinese celebration to party all night long with karaoke session and mahjong and such, so we decided to make way and try to seek some 'peace' (not that we are against it but karaoke in the middle of the night out in the open..err?? gimme me a break!) Anyway, we headed for city centre just to catch the glimpse of sparkle, the night ambience and such and we end up at Kampung Bharu, a village right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur city centre. It is no longer a pure traditional village like it used to, since it has overly develop in such a rugged manner where certain quarters simply have ignored the originality and go for commercialism. However, if you care to take a walk around you could still find at nooks of it, there are some old cottage which has been beautifully furbish to maintain its originality to withstand the modernisation, mind you KLCC Twin Towers is just a glance away and it seems like the pair are looking down at this village!
Eventhough Kuala Lumpur at night was so bright with colorful neons and LED lights and and street lights and the dancing light that shine on the buildings or on the walkways, but I DO miss the twinkling light of the stars which has been overcome by the artificial bright light of the city! Either I'm getting old or am seriously romantic..haha!!
