A Tale of Two Visits, a Walk in KL’s Last Village

I took these pictures a few months ago. I just got these new lenses for my Nikon camera, and I wanted to try them out. My last visit to Kampung Baru was many years ago when I worked there in my twenties. In fact, that was my first time visiting Kampung Baru.

I traveled by bus and then by train from Bandar Sri Damansara to Menara TH Selborn. For two years, I walked from Kampung Baru LRT station to the office at Menara TH Selborn and vice versa, and I enjoyed it—the walking.

Coming back a decade later, I was surprised to see so many changes in Kampung Baru. It’s sad to see that so much development has taken place.

Mind you, I wasn’t born here, nor was I raised in Kampung Baru. Like many of you, I’m an outsider who came to Kuala Lumpur to earn a living. But those two years of walking around Kampung Baru made me realise how special this place is.

I’ve read a few news articles about Kampung Baru, but I’m not up to date on what’s happening there. This article from Culture Trip titled “Explore Kampung Baru, the Village of Kuala Lumpur,” basically has everything I need to know about Kampung Baru.

Below are pictures I took recently on my second visit. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of my first visit. I wish I had a camera then.

Before I forget, on my second visit, I came with my wife and my son. We went to Saloma Bridge. Luckily for us, when we arrived, there was not a single person on the bridge. It was only the three of us. So we took some pictures here and there.
