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 ...

I think you confused liao. Rex was at Petaling st arealah..The capitol was located at Raja Laut/Chow Kit area..I think you mean Federal cinema kot?

Rex is still there but turned into badly maintained guesthouse but dunno that guesthouse still there? Federal Cinema converted to Cineplex during late 90's mah still a cineplex till Today.
QUOTE(kuaLe_AGX @ Jan 17 2011, 10:45 AM)
got. Last time my place got Rex & Capitol(2" wud nvr know this cinemas exist) Cinemas...

but Rex got demolished some 15+years ago and capitol now got turned into snooker centre sad.gif

You mean the LDP? Yeah prior to the opening of LDP ~1999, Damansaras Kepong link is just narrow & jammed up road. haha..

Prior to 1999 The LDP also causes havoc in Bdr Sunway, once a quiet neighbourhood suddenly cut-off both side due to the highway & there is no road linking Sunway to Puchong..the existing LDP that cut the township is just a Dead end road residential road..Boy...LDP really changed the whole area.

Regret din take any of the dead end road prior to the construction of LDP. sad.gif

Wondering anyone can share the United Seafield plantation before 90's..Prior to that, Only Subang Jaya exist and USJ was a rubber/oil palm platation..Seafield, United Planntation estate...It will be interesting to have the 1st view of Seafield.

QUOTE(alanyuppie @ Jan 17 2011, 10:59 AM)
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.
