My City Kuala Lumpur - Part 3

(All photos in this entry are captured using Lumix GF3)


We crossed the road towards a well-landscaped area just next to Merdeka Square, at Jalan Parlimen. Located just nearby Gombak  River and facing the building of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), the area is famous for its Pitcher plant (Nepenthes spp.) fountain, but trust me when I say feeling the splashes of the fountain right onto the skin is far more refreshing than just enjoying the sculpture from afar while driving. :)

To our surprise, Rotary Club has built a mini garden with a time capsule within the area.

There are benches for people to rest. But some use it to sleep.

Rotary Time Capsule. Seriously I have no idea what this club is all about since I am not a fan of history.

The well paved walkway for pedestrians. And can be seen from here is Kuala Lumpur City Hall Building.

The famous Pitcher Plant fountain. It still looks interesting without water.

Wooden benches with Hibiscus motif. Which is relevant since Hibiscus is Malaysia's national flower.

The island is planted with well grown Bucida molineti variegated.

The bank of Gombak River is planted with shrubs to cover the soil and to improve the look of the area

I am not sure what is that 'box' being built with Lady's finger palm (Rhapis excelsa)  surrounding it.

On the other side of the river, we found these. And an eating place. And a route that brought us one level down the road. The day was getting hotter and hotter.

And here we were. We are supposed to cross the busy road to go to the other side, but it was dangerous to just cross.
Underneath is a tunnel for pedestrians, but the look of the small dark tunnel is umm...not very pleasant.
Are we going to go through the tunnel or just go back to the road and cross?
At Jalan Parlimen be continued...
