Lindsay and Yoon in KL - Petaling St & Tugu Negara

Linds and Yoon were in town, took them to Petaling Street (Chinatown) for some shopping!


We then headed out to Tugu Negara, near the Parliament House.


Initially sunny, the rain promptly came down!


Yoon taking photos ... caught in action!


Tugu Negara, literally the "National Monument" in Malay, is a sculpture that commemorates those who died in Malaysia's struggle for freedom, principally against the Japanese occupation during World War II and the Malayan Emergency , which lasted from 1948 until 1960. It is located in the Federal capital, Kuala Lumpur. The Malaysian Houses of Parliament is situated near the monument.
The monument depicts a group of soldiers holding the Malaysian national flag, the Jalur Gemilang, aloft. Each of the bronze figures symbolizes leadership, suffering, unity, vigilance, strength, courage and sacrifice.

Time to head off...


We then went to pick up a friend for dinner, and met some duckies instead!
