Dengilo : What makes you think this yellow tomb is Yap Ah Loy's ?

I couldn't read Chinese so I wouldn't know.......Plus if I am not mistaken, I've seen this as this is along the main road into Chin Foot Tze Tmeple right? This could be a family plot as not many individual plots are this big.

These two pictures of deserted Kuala Lumpur streets in May 1969 after the outbreak of internecine racial strife brings back searing memories of the blackest mark in Malaysian history, yet they are timely reminders not to raise the May 13 spectre again.

The photographs were taken at two spots, namely, 1) Jalan Bukit Bintang with the Cathay Cinema (showing a Mandarin film, Young Love), the Malayan Hotel and the Seagull Chinese medicine shop opposite; and 2) the Jalan Tun Perak (previously Jalan Mountbatten) intersection

The photographs were taken by Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah, who was the 4th Yang diPertuan Agong (Sept 21, 1965-Sept 21, 1970). He was installed the 14th Sultan of Terengganu on Dec 16, 1945. Sultan Ismail, who was an avid photographer since the 1930s, died on Sept 20, 1979.

Skyline of downtown KL in the 1970s. MUI Plaza on the left, Wisma Lim Foo Yoong on the right, Equatorial Hotel, Hilton Hotel & Holiday Inn On-The-Park Hotel all in the middle and the former Jalan Ampang Race Course at the background middle. From ANG CHEE, Architect's post at Rakan KL's FB page.

Kampung Kerinchi, year 1979.

This part of KL has never been featured here before.



This area is now called Bangsar South.
