you know hor, all my friends who have been to KL ah, have nothing but starry eyed amazement at the city. machiam they go to space and then come back lidat. the train passage from SG to KL a transit to heaven or sth. Especially Alfian Sa'at, who is SO besotted with KL he vows to leave Singapore for KL in 3 years. So this led me to begin wondering why, after all, haven't we all been indoctrinated with the notion that Malaysia all big bully, and Singapore hub this hub that? Let me examine my feelings on the Vision City, KL.

1) KL is very much like Singapore. The street names sound alike. They could even merge and i couldn't tell the difference from one corner to the next. We, despite diversionary politics since separation, still possess roughly the same cultural stock as we did pre merger. melting pot. straits chinese. clan associations. indeed we are only 1-2 generations from that era of Malaya. therefore, an overwhelming familiarity with the streets of KL. also insidiously, a speculation of a Singapore that could have been, if not for the strait laced cultural masterminding of the PAP. those of us who despair at the doctrinous PAP in Singapore thus find visionary the kind of society KL has.

2) KL got civil society. got clan associations. got artistic initiative from the roots up. no have any committee on cultural mastermind. committee on terrorism sensitivity. committee on learn chinese learn mother tongue artistic society open and inclusive society and this and that. Therefore, KL arts scene does not have the spectre of insidious government interference. Art for arts sake in KL, art only if it makes economic sense (and entrenches political doctrine) in Singapore.

3) KL got nice building. Petronas i like. but name petronas i don't. reeks of political collusion, hyperinflation and monopoly. anyway same like our own temasek holdings. i don't like also. but KL got nice building.

4) ok the one sight i had of KL: on the train enroute to Penang when i was Primary Six. Pulling into KL by dawn for a morning stop over. i looked out the cabin window from my upper tier bed, and saw the gleaming silhouette of the Petronas and KL skyline in morning glory. The city from afar, sitting resplendent in a golden valley. My eyes popped out of the socket. breath taking.

Maybe i come KL soon. Before i go Taipei. In May. Ok. go Bangsar nightclub. Go eat roti kanai (is it?). Go and spit into Citijaya lake (oops). Still a lot of unaddressed grievances with Mahathir politics lah...

The Lot C development seems to take away the grandeur of the Petronas Towers. Part of the stunning view from Menara KL is the relative loneliness on which the twin towers stand with the huge park behind it.

Wah........nice diction!

Anyway KLites aren't that artistic lah....we're sometimes still submit to the whims and fancy of the government........some peformances need police and city hall permit for instance.....lotsa red tapes.....

Do you know Alfian Sa'at personally? I've seen his reviews bout a movie ....hmmmm

Well.....do buzz me when you're in KL (or you could contact me prior coming to KL so I could be prepared) . I could bring you around and eat Roti Canai
