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

Must preserve the old, while keeping progress.

I really believe we can progress while at the same time, retaining the past, old architecture.

good for that, tawau has changed too much for the last 10 years

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.

In those days, KL seems to feel more like "provincial" than a metropolis (Klang Valley as of today).

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.
