Just Back: Kuala Lumpur

Photo: Ou Shiyi, China Daily.

Me, dancing with Shahnaz, Features Writer of the Bangladeshi daily, The Daily Star, at the foot of the KL Tower. So mesmerized was the Dhaka native by the piped-in waltzy sounds of the viewing deck-restaurant that she wanted to dance. I slipped into my dancing shoes immediately.

Me, in the auditorium of the KLPAC.

Baklava, RM1, a sure sign that the Arabs have arrived.

The beautiful Zed Zaidi makes an appearance in local designers' garb at An Evening With the Stars at the Nikko Hotel during Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week.

KLites' new pride and glory--the KLPAC, Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre--resides in the core of an ex-warehouse, partially-funded and owned by Francis Yeoh.

Kuala Lumpur's unofficial third language is...

Putrajaya: The hint of Arabia makes my knees go weak.

Homegrown- Vansh goes global as it opens its first restaurant overseas at the Feast of newly-refurbished and suitably-glam Starhill Gallery.

The view from Twin Towers' skybridge.

The new face of Bumiputras.

KLCC/Twin Towers; for the nth time.

Wearable ethnic chic at the Kuala Lumpur Arts & Crafts complex.

Putrajaya: Pekingnese proportions.

Explosion of colours at a Malay dance.

Fireworks at The Curve.

A nice dose of royalty juxtaposed by a pink backdrop; the scene of a Malay wedding ceremony as exhibited at the Kuala Lumpur Arts and Crafts Complex.

Modernity takes root at the Royal Selangor Pewter Centre.

Never knew wedding ceremonies could look so richly chic.
