Yes ✅, she wishes to enjoy holidays within her own living city 🌆🏙/ home country 🚗🚌🇲🇟

Yeah‌ Have you heard about an instagrammable attraction 📍 in Kuala Lumpur (KL), the capital city 🌆🏙 of Malaysia 🇲🇟❓⁉

It was before Malaysia 🇲🇟 ‘s Movement Control Order (MCO) even started though…

She 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝aboutthis instagrammable bridge 🌉named Pintasan Saloma in Malaysia 🇲🇟 ‘s national language aka Saloma Link Bridge 🌉

Guess what❓⁉

It’s now the longest single span steel structure elevated walkway 🌉 in Malaysia 🇲🇟 The orientation of its floor finishes along the walkway is facing the Qibla (Read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qibla) to create continuity ↔ between the Pintasan Saloma & Jalan Ampang Muslim Cemetery Park

Surely all of you have viewed lots of beautiful 😍🀩captures 📞📹🎥 & news sharing about it whether from the main media 🗞📰 or online social platforms 📱🖥👩🏻‍💻👚🏻‍💻

Yes ✅, this Saloma Link with its main structure i.e. A covered elevated steel pedestrian bridge 🌉 already launched for public visit since 5 Feb 2020 in the city 🌆🏙 which commissioned by Kampong Bharu Development Corporation (PKB) 😀

It stretches 370m & span across the AKLEH Highway 🛣 & Klang River of 69m long. Its curved steel roof canopy houses the with 4.1K diamond facade panels & equipped with LED lights💡💡which brightly-lit up at night 🌃🌌 The state-of-the-art lighting actually changing the light colours from time to time to creating amazing images for public to enjoy their walking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂ & capturing unique moments with it 📞📹🎥

Yes ✅, another iconic landmark 📍 in of Malaysia 🇲🇟 This beautiful 😍🀩 pedestrian bridge 🌉 connects ↔ between Kampong Baru & Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) just 7⃣mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂distance as compared to 30mins in the past, from Jalan Sungai Baru to Jalan Saloma (reason of its name) & expanding over Klang River

A seamless pedestrian connectivity ↔ between both the old & new 🆕 worlds of KL 🌆🏙, a mere distance from the Kampung Baru LRT 🚉 The construction of this bridge took 1.5 years to complete with cost 💰 of RM31mil (approximately USD7.5mil), including its consultancy cost

The bridge’s architecture is inspired by the Sirih Junjung in Malaysia 🇲🇟‘s national language aka Betel Leaf concept, a must in traditional Malay wedding ceremonies 🎉🎊 as a symbol of unity among the Malay community. Also its design slightly similar to Bridge of Peace, a bow-shaped pedestrian bridge 🌉 with steel & glass construction over the Kura River at in downtown Tbilisi, capital of Georgia 🇬🇪, read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_of_Peace

Let’s all of us be a responsible traveller whenever & wherever we are 😊

Ohh ya…Not just that, this bridge also aims for healthy lifestyle in the city 🌆🏙, it’s promoting walkability within the city 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂

A 5⃣ km fun walk 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂ ~ Jejak Warisan @ Pintasan Saloma 2020 was organised on 29 Feb 2020 to celebrate 🎉🎊 the Happy Federal Territory Day in conjunction of the opening ceremony of this Saloma Link Bridge 🌉

Then she 👩🏻 got contacted with PKB FB page & received invitation as media 😃😁 So she wore a blue running 🏃🏻‍♀ shirt 🎜👕 & enjoyed a great sweat 😓💊💧as she always enjoy, yeah‌

Some of the old shops are really well maintained👍🏻, including still operating the businesses as inherited, while some actually have transformed to modern faces 🏢… Her personal thought 💭 , it would be good 👍🏻 if all old buildings are maintained as its origin as possible though☺

However, she also well received ☺ that town evolution is unavoidable too…Hmm…Happy 😃 that old town JB is still not too bad in its heritage maintenance thus far. Bravo‌👍🏻👏🏻

So, she was impressed 🀩 with 1⃣ of the old business which stay from the olden days till now😲

Hmm…Why Piai❓⁉

It’s named after a local fern 🌿 plant aka Paku Piai 🌿 in Malaysia’s 🇲🇟national language. This plant is capable of living in brackish water conditions i.e. scattered in this park🙂

Tanjung Piai 🌿 is the southern most point of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇟 & the southern most tip of Mainland Asia 🌎too with the borders of shorelines of Malaysia 🇲🇟 , Indonesia 🇮🇩 & Singapore 🇞🇬

Lots of tourists 👫👭👬 travelling to here, just to capture a photo 📞 with this globe 🌐 shaped monument & plaque which marked the southernmost point😍

Guess what❓⁉

Tanjung Piai 🌿 as a coastal mangrove also being granted in Jan 2003 with the status🎖of an internationally important Ramsar Convention site👏🏻

It has high socio-economic value for fisheries 🐟🐟 especially mudskippers aka ikan belacak in Malaysia’s 🇲🇟national language😀

The national park officers 👩🏻‍💌👚🏻‍💌shared about the breeding story of mudskippers🐟. Apparently the male 🚹🐟 mudskippers need to build a mud house 🏠 (refer photo 📞 below) to attract the female 🚺🐟mudskippers. Ha…Ha…Interesting facts learnt😅😂🀣
