Leisurely Sundays in Bangsar

The joke around Kuala Lumpur is that the expatriates have displaced the local Indians from Bangsar Telawi into Brickfields, the other Little India in KL, and that recently the Malaysian Indians have made a strong comeback to reclaim what was lost.

They have succeded in actually regaining half a road (Jalan Telawi 2) so far.

If you were one of the expatriates who ‘took over’ Bangsar Telawi in the 90s and have not been back ever since, the new Bangsar will seen like another city from the Twilight Zone.

Many of the old restaurants and pubs have been converted into the retail latest free market commodity in Malaysia: women’s apparel especially clothes, handbags and shoes, shoes, shoes!

And let’s not forget about the 2 spanking new high street malls.

Bangsar Telawi has in fact become a miniature Oxford Street of London of sorts!
