Murals in KL

A fellow R@SKL turned me on to the fact that there are a lot of murals in KL. I knew of some along the bank of the Klang River because they are visible from the rapid-transit trains.

Zaryl led eighteen of us on a mural tour.

I had no idea that there were so many more within 8km / 6mi of where I live. Mostly in the old heart of the city, in areas which were run down and frankly dodgy until urban renewal efforts worked their magic. Jalan Alor. Changkat Bukit Bintang. Lorong Panggung. Now those areas are home to trendy cafés, restaurants and speakeasies. And are very Instagrammable!

And two murals which reflect the current zeitgeist.

We stopped for breakfast at Feeka, which is next door to this mural.

After all the treats for the eyes it was time for some treats for my tummy!

Our last stop was not at a mural but at a work of art nonetheless. The recently-opened Saloma Link Bridge.

I left Malaysia in 2008 as a non-cyclist. I am back home now with three road bikes and all the paraphernalia that goes with being addicted to cycling.
