Kuala Lumpur, a culture rich city with a host of exciting happenings that would leave you wanting more. From dining, arts, culture, recreation, shopping and entertainment- you’ll never be bored in this exciting city! The diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures are united by the national language of Malaysia, Bahasa Malaysia.

Jalan Kampung Attap, 80 - 84, Jalan Rotan
A refurbished dilapidated row of shop lots turned vibrant arts, design, music and fashion hub. The Zhongshan Building plays home to a mini gallery, studios, research centers, cafes, a library, a record store and many more. This is one of my favorite spots to chill at and immerse in.
