The City: Always growing, ever-changing

The KL Twin Towers in the background.
The KL Twin Towers in the background.

A drive into the city.
As familiar, yet changed.
Something new springs up.
It wasn’t there last week.

Hands free, feeling bored.
I dig out my hand-phone.
What will catch my sight?
Almost everything I see.

I focus, I click the shots.
Anything and everything.
Snap here, snap there.
The city I know, yet new.

The camera brings focus.
A different angle of take.
New angles I see, snap.
Buildings captured, print.

The KL tower reflected on the glass panels a building.
The impressive Maju Junction, the Pedestrian Walk (left) and the Monorail (right).
A bit too slow: Can you see a little of the tail-end of the monorail train?
Hotel Buddy’s: This must be a new hotel as I would have noticed it before because my friend’s name is Buddy.
How rare to see coconut trees in the city.
On going constructions a common sight in Kuala Lumpur city.
The Klang River flows under two flyovers (right). The condominium in the foreground has to be extremely expensive being located in the city centre.
Flyovers crisscrossing at the Jalan Duta roundabout.
What are the odds I'd be lucky to spot a train heading north let alone take a decent photo shoot.

Highway to Nowhere: This highway was supposed to lead to Mont Kiara but it didn’t happen.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira

  1. Nice poem and photos. The new architecture is so space-age looking. I like the really old buildings and the really new ones. Somehow, something blocky happened in between – Imagination on vacation. Thanks for taking me on the ride.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the ride. I live 20 minutes from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. It’s a hub of activities, a city that almost never sleeps.
