Kualar Lumpur, Malaysia
We were on an Urban Adventure foodie tour through Kualar Lumpur when I spotted this old beauty. She looked stubborn, refusing to move despite or in spite of the development crowding in around her. A traditional Malay house that had been spared. Surrounded by skyscrapers.
Looking into the photo just to the left of the house was an unfinished stretch of motorway soaring well above her roof top. High above you can see the ongoing construction works where you’d expect to see the sky.
They say of so many cities now “oh, it’s a mix of modernity and tradition” but when you see it so starkly, don’t you wonder at what cost?
