It's been a long time I didn't post a new journal. Nothing much actually, I just played with the larger Cul de sac mod and made a wealth undense residential out of it. Although I don't really understand what does it mean (is it french?), I found that Cul de sac is really interesting. If you are planning to make a wealth sub urbs, I think this is a very good tool. credit to marsh for this mod. :thumb:

Here are other part of the city that doesn't really have cul de sac. I mean, I don't think it is logic if all part of the city use cul de sac, don't you?

I think zoning is also an art. I realize that I don't have to zone everything very near or next to another. this will make your city looks calm some how. :idea:

The city of Kuala Lumpur was originally a district of the state of Selangor, but later after Independence, because KL city was the most developed in the country, it was chosen by the Federal Government to become the "Federal Territories", this works like District of Columbia in Washington D.C, USA where the district is actually own by the Federal Government.

The word Kuala Lumpur literally means the Delta of mud, or muddy delta. Historically, Kuala Lumpur was developed because of several tin mines around KL. The price of Tin is expensive and was exported to U.S during civil war and to the rest of Europe during WW1 and WW2. the scene of muddy environment is actually comes from the mining activities around KL. The last Tin mine in KL was in 1970's and there are no longer tin mining activities since then. Now, other economic activities such as commercial areas, offices, banks, services, shopping complex etc had become the main sector of economy in KL.

The essence of European architecture is still available in this ex-European colonial country. Malaysia was colonized by Portuguese, Netherlands and British empire and finally Japanese took over in WW2, all of these took over 400 years of colonization period. as ex-British colonial rule, Malaysia is known as the Commonwealth Country by the British. SO, IT DOES NOT LOOK SO STRANGE IF KUALA LUMPUR HAS SOME OLD ENGLISH ARCHITECTURES in it's buildings. Featured pictures are Royal Selangor Club in front of Dataran Merdeka, a historical buildings ages around 125 years old. :read:

*Featured are two main towers (or three?) the Twin Tower on the right is Petronas Twin Tower located in the KLCC, Kuala Lumpur. It holds THE TALLEST BUILDING IN THE WORLD for 8 years between 1997 to 2004 before the throne changed to Taiwan 101 Tower in Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) and now it is the time of Burj Al-Khalifa in Dubai (every bodies know that). But Petronas Twin Tower is still the Tallest Twin Building in the world (Yes, even if WTC in New York's still standing until today!).

On the middle side, stand tall and single is the "Menara Kuala Lumpur" - translated as "Kuala Lumpur Tower" (Malaysian Language grammar are always go backwards if it is translated to English lol). It look like as the same level with Petronas Twin Tower but it is actually built on a hill called Bukit Nenas (again it means Nenas Hill). So it is actually not as the same heights with Petronas Twin Tower.

Nowadays, there are lots of Holiday package called Homestays where people all around the world especially from Europe, US, and Australia have a chance to live the Kampung style (Malay countryside style).
