KKB remains as the main administrative town of Hulu Selangor district. Yes ✅, 1️⃣ of its heritage still operating as the current Hulu Selangor District Land Office 🏢

This administrative complex 🏢 rehoused the District House & the Magistrate Court. The British took a lesson from the floods tragedy by building administrative complex 🏢 on top of hill ⛰ for safety purposes. The construction of the complex 🏢 was completed in 3 Nov 1930 with a cost of $172, 675.70

2️⃣. King George VI Commemorate Clock 🕰 Tower

This clock 🕰 tower is a major landmark of KKB town. It’s located at the top of Bukit Kerajaan ⛰ & opposite the Hulu Selangor District/ Land Office 🏢

It was built in 1937 to commemorate King George VI & Queen Elizabeth crowned King & Queen of England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

It’s located at the top of Bukit Kerajaan ⛰ & was 1️⃣st built in the 1914 as a church ⛪ named The Church of Ascension to serve the Angelic devotees. It has the physical aspects of a typical Victorian building eg. the cupola at the top of roof

4️⃣. KKB Post Office 🏤

It was built around the 1930s along with the development of KKB. It was designed with the Neo-Classical Architecture style, mainly characterised by round gable windows & round tribe casement windows 

5️⃣. No.1 & 2 Jalan Dato Tabal Shophouses

Shophouse No.1️⃣ (PWD 211) & No. 2️⃣ (PWD 212) are shophouses in the historic building category. These shophouses were dispossessed by security forces during Malayan Emergency. However, there are 2️⃣ versions of the story,

Version 1️⃣ ~ This building is used by Communists to attack the Police 🚨👮🏻‍♀️👮🏻‍♂️Station @ Bukit Kerajaan

Version 2️⃣ ~ This building has been used by the Communists forces for their meetings

In the past, this Dato Tabal street was called as Bowen street. Bowen actually meant for a long serving District Officer of Hulu Selangor in the past as mentioned in a letter written by the District Officer of Hulu Selangor to its residents about the naming of streets in KKB. All being recorded in the book 📖 named “Tarikh Kuala Kubu 1780 – 1931” published by the Kuala Kubu History Society.

This actually relating to SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2020/05/19/things-cant-wait-to-do-after-the-end-of-covid19-lockdown/

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

She 👩🏻 has 1️⃣st visited it from her earlier participation ✅ as media team for Kuala Lumpur 🌆🏙 What’s Fun trip❓⁉️😃😉

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 7️⃣mins 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

She 👩🏻would like to reminding public, both Malaysians & foreign visitors 👫👭👬 to maintaining the cleanliness 🚮of this bridge, perhaps by not ❌ having any snacks/ beverages 🍟🌯🍿🥤 while visiting this link bridge

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 5️⃣ 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‼️

So happy 😃 she 👩🏻 has joined this Jejak Warisan Pintasan Saloma as both media & participant 🚶🏻‍♀️

It was a great 👍🏻 event organised with not just the fun walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️, also a Malay traditional costume & kids colouring competition
