Thats the Federal hotel, so on the bottom right should be the original site for Sg Wang ... look there were like coconut trees around there and also kampung houses ...

back in 1996. I find it interesting to be driven to 1u and think... wow... a mall in the middle of housing area. And its facing a huge empty land opposite the road somemore. Then, the MRR was not fully connected yet. The damansara toll was not erected and the road are narrow and dirty.

thats not mrr lah, its ldp is it ... mrr2 is at the end of ldp

last time from 1u onwards its nothing much, only sungai buloh ... now doting all over ldp are houses and condos ...

bukit kiara and all still jungle last time ...
