BTW, I found the name for that church in East Village and it's called the Church of the Holy Redeemer.

Hong Kong
This used to mark the terminus of the KCR Railway. It has since moved to the east and the tower has become a historic symbol.

Kuala Lumpur

A stately, historic building rich in character, it was built in 1897 to house several important government departments during the British administration. This Moorish-inspired building, topped by a shiny copper dome and a 40m high clock tower, is a major landmark in the city. It serves as the backdrop for important events such as the National Day Parade on August 31 and the ushering in of the New Year. This heritage building is now occupied by the Supreme Court and the Textile Museum.
