Take a photo of what you love most about Kuala Lumpur

KUALA Lumpur is a melting pot of cultures. An over spoken line perhaps, but no less true.

People from all walks of life have come to this city, lived here, created memories and made their mark throughout the Federal Territory’s 40-year history.

Everyone has a story to tell and we want to hear it because a city is nothing without its people. The word ‘city’ has its origins in the Latin word civis, which means citizen.

Snap a photograph of a thing or a scene and tell us why it reminds you of Kuala Lumpur and tag us on Twitter or Facebook using #mykl.

We will publish some of the best photos we receive every Friday this month.

To kickstart the campaign, check out some of the things we have captured which tells part of the story that makes up the bigger picture of our beloved capital city.

Despite the busy roads and aggressive driving in the city, pedestrians still jaywalk everywhere, often holding up their hand in what seems to be an effective method of halting cars.

Jams are the hallmark of Kuala Lumpur, albeit a negative one, which only seems to get worse by the day with thousands of new vehicles being registered in the capital every month.
