Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, I have seen and experienced the transformation of Kuala Lumpur over the past four decades. I have seen historical landmarks getting demolished to make way for iconic skyscrapers in its present avatar. I have been a licensed tourist guide for over 20 years and have guided guests from almost every corner of the world. I am a storyteller and love to answer questions about Kuala Lumpur and for that matter, the whole of Malaysia.
