Here I come…

I am Talha from Islamabad Metblogs. I am in KL for a while and shall be posting my experiences in this city for the next some days.

Till now – I am loving the city.

Steve McCurry in KL

Steve McCurry gave a talk at the Central Market Annexe earlier today. Who?

He’s the guy by the road in KL that sells a lot of tasty chicken curry. Okay, that was absolutely lame.

He is the photographer that produced that famous National Geographic’s “Afghan Girl” photo back in the 1980s.

I found out about the talk quite late; less than 12 hours only. But I did get there in time at 20:00 hours. Unfortunately, being on time was not enough. According to a friend, the small hall was full by 19:30 hours!

I couldn’t get in. And a lot of people were standing outside, clearly disappointed because they couldn’t get in too.

I went straight home after that, heartbroken. Oh well.
