FUUUUUU

Nowadays Flat Pekeliling still undemolished despite all the tenants moved out years ago.

BTW, LOL at "Satu lagi ranchangan rumah murah Kerajaan Perikatan".

Must be the previous headline before "Satu Lagi Projek Kerajaan Barisan Nasional".....

Yes, nowadays it's called Jalan tun razak.

Flat pekeliling technically set for demolition because they wanted to rebuild it using current specs.

Previously Flat pekeliling only had 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, which is inadequate especially since typical household have 5 people (2 adults and 3 children) on average.

That is why it's now unoccupied. because they relocated all the previous tenants.

But for some reason the project stalled for years already.

Those pics were taken by some serious quality lenses. I'm guessing Leica the least. Very contrasty and striking as if it made me feels like I'm back to the past as I'm looking at it. DSLR sucks. Old school film + High quality glass = The real deal!

tl;dr fcuk development.

Can't believe how much KL has lost due to modernisation.

Just take the example of the PUDU JAIL.. I totally one of the msia citizen who disagreed of the demolished of PUDU JAIL.. if not of the selfishness of developer this tempat bersejarah is still proudly located at the centre of kl city. If not maybe future I still can have the opportunity to show my kids / grandchildren the history of PUDU JAIL.

It's not about the PUDU JAIL itself but the painting at the outside walls who make it unique & special. Can you believe it that the painter was a banduan at the jail & he has the talent of drawing the picture by using just only his fingers.

Not that they have choice to begin with.

Sandakan town centre is narrow and small. Smaller than Tawau. Most Sandakanites live in suburb area.

Sandakan town centre is bordered by sea at the south, hill at the north.

According to this

The trend is not unknown of.

In India, same thing.

Bombay ---> Mumbai

Calcutta ---> Kolkata

Bangalore ---> Bengaluru

Note : The former names are still very popular and recognisable, even among youngsters.

{ Oleh Mohd Azis Ngah

MEI 1973, sebuah kompleks berharga RM10 juta dibuka dan secara tidak rasmi menjadi mercu tanda Kuala Lumpur pada masa itu kerana ia satu-satunya bangunan pencakar langit di pusat bandar raya yang menjadi kebanggaan warga kota.
Kompleks Campbell itu mengandungi podium setinggi empat tingkat menempatkan gedung pakaian, kedai kamera, kedai jahit, restoran, bar, sebuah kelab malam serta bangunan pejabat setinggi 20 tingkat.
Ketika usianya baru mencecah tiga tahun, bangunan itu hangus dijilat api pada 8 April 1976 yang disifatkan tragedi paling besar pada era 70-an kerana pasukan bomba dan penyelamat terpaksa mengambil masa hampir 30 jam untuk memadamkan kebakaran itu.
Kejadian dikatakan bermula pada jam 10.30 malam dan api marak sehingga jam 2 pagi di bangunan yang menempatkan 180 kedai serta 20 tingkat bangunan pejabat.
Bangunan itu menempatkan Ibu Pejabat Bank Kerjasama Rakyat, Lembaga Latihan Persijilan Perusahaan Ketukangan Kebangsaan, seksyen akaun Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosiol (Perkeso).
API merebak memusnahkan seluruh bangunan dan kompleks
Kejadian disifatkan media sama seperti filem ‘The Towering Inferno’ yang mendapat sambutan hangat di pawagam ketika itu.
Seorang peniaga, Yap Leong Hoem, 59, maut selepas terjun dari tingkat dua kompleks berkenaan manakala lebih 1,000 orang hilang pekerjaan - antaranya pekerja Emporium Campbell, pejabat, gerai kompleks, kedai pakaian, alat solek, kedai kasut, kedai rekod dan syarikat pelancongan.
Kebakaran itu mula disedari seorang pengawal keselamatan yang bertugas di tingkat dua kompleks selepas ternampak kepulan asap keluar daripada sebuah kedai batik kira-kira jam 10.45 malam dan asap mula menyelubungi seluruh tingkat berkenaan.
Ketika itu, kebanyakan kedai di situ sudah ditutup kerana hanya beroperasi sehingga jam 10 malam setiap hari.

Pengawal keselamatan bersama seorang lagi rakannya cuba memadam kebakaran awal menggunakan alat pemadam api tetapi gagal kerana api marak terlalu cepat.

Mangsa yang terkorban, Yap Leong Hoem, dikatakan berada di tingkat dua dan terlalu panik menyebabkannya membuat pilihan nekad dengan terjun bangunan dan disahkan meninggal dunia ketika dalam perjalanan ke Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL).

Enam lagi termasuk wanita yang berada di kelab malam di tingkat lima turut pengsan kerana terhidu asap tebal.

Pasukan bomba mula memasuki bangunan dengan memakai topeng gas serta membawa tangki oksigen untuk menyelamat dan memadam kebakaran tetapi usaha awal mereka selama dua jam tidak begitu berhasil.

Pasukan Simpanan Persekutuan (FRU) turut membantu mengawal keadaan dan Jalan Campbell mula ditutup kepada orang ramai bagi memudahkan usaha mengawal dan memadam kebakaran.

Wartawan Berita Harian yang membuat liputan kebakaran, Muhammad Sharom Suboh bersama dua rakan setugas, Halim Majid dan Ali Mansor menyifatkan kejadian itu amat menggerunkan tetapi memberi banyak pengalaman serta pengajaran.

“Kami dapat menyaksikan api merebak dari satu tingkat ke satu tingkat lain. Satu demi satu tingkat hangus, kaca pecah dan berterbangan. Orang ramai memenuhi segenap penjuru kawasan sekitar untuk melihat sendiri kebakaran.

“Ia menggerunkan kerana itulah pengalaman pertama menyaksikan kebakaran begitu besar. Walaupun hujan lebat pada tengah hari, ia tidak memadai untuk membantu pasukan bomba. Ketika itu pun, kelengkapan pasukan bomba tidak secanggih sekarang.

“Wartawan juga bertugas membuat liputan 24 jam sehari kerana kebakaran serta operasi memadam mengambil masa terlalu lama,” katanya.

Sharom yang berusia 19 tahun ketika itu dan kini memegang jawatan Ketua Perkhidmatan Sokongan Editorial NSTP menjelaskan, warga kota yang bangun pagi pada hari kejadian untuk keluar bekerja serta menjalankan urusan harian terkejut dengan kejadian yang meranapkan bangunan kebanggaan ibu kota.

Kebakaran itu dikatakan menyebabkan kerugian kira-kira RM50 juta dan difahamkan, bangunan itu diinsuranskan sebanyak RM30 juta. Setiap kedai di situ dilapor mengambil insurans sekurang-kurangnya RM100,000.

Kejadian itu turut menarik perhatian Menteri Kebajikan Am, Aishah Ghani; Ahli Parlimen Bukit Bintang, Lee Lam Thye serta Penolong Ketua Polis Negara, Datuk Mahmud Yunus.

one thing to remember, KL population in 1950's was approximately 208 000.
As of 2010, it was approximately 1 703 000.
that's almost 7.5 times more.
So cannot compare to last time where there aren't many buildings around.
