Technology is advancing & as it is, so are things in the car insurance world 🚗🚙📑

What’s new 🆕 with car insurance 🚗🚙📑❓⁉️

Guess what❓⁉️

All Malaysians 🇲🇾👫👭👬 can now renew your car insurance 🚗🚙📑 over the internet 🌐‼️ How convenient is that❓⁉️ Considering how amazing this new 🆕 feature is, it’s a bit surprising that most people don’t know very much about it.

Renewing your car coverage policy online is less stressful

Yet, you have to sort car insurance 🚗🚙📑 coverage issues, read more via 🌐 https://blog.fincrew.my/2020/07/30/different-kinds-of-car-insurance-coverage/

1️⃣ of the hill ~ Bukit Batu Pahat ⛰ is now famous for extreme sport ~ paragliding, aka KKB Paragliging Park currently. Not to miss the beautiful 😍🤩 scenery & view from this hill top ya 🏞

Why❓⁉️

KKB was designed by Malaya’s 1️⃣st town planner Charles Reade based on the influential ‘garden city movement’ of urban planning which 1️⃣st initiated by Sir Ebenezer Howard back in 1898

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 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

3️⃣. Hulu Selangor Traffic🚦Police HQ 🚨👮🏻‍♂️👮🏻‍♀️

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

It had been adaptive reused when C.C Reade (1880 – 1933) proposal of the new 🆕 township that involving this hilly site ⛰ as an administration centre in year 1926 🏢

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has actually missed 🤦🏻‍♀️ this spot from her trail exploring. A special thanks to her travelmate, IG @livelifelah 🙋🏻‍♀️ she has got the pictures 📸📸 of Spot 3️⃣ to share here

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.

It aims to keep for consumption of almost a year (ie. Tahun means year in Malaysia 🇲🇾s national language)

Keep in cooking wok & heat up daily for consumption as chilies 🌶🌶 are natural food perservative. Not to mix with coconut milk when 1st cooking it for keep purposes
