Due to the chinese new year public holiday, I decided to look around KL wheter there will be a parade of chinese culture as I see on the net they have it last year, too bad I didn't find one that day, so I keep on walking down the road and found The Sultan Abdul Samad Building which is located in front of the Dataran Merdeka - literally the Independence Square - in Kuala Lumpur.
The structure takes its name from Sultan Abdul Samad, the reigning sultan of Selangor at the time when construction began. Topped by a shiny copper dome and a 40m high clock tower, it is a major landmark in the city. It serves as the backdrop for important events such as the National Day Parade and the ushering in of the New Year. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building now houses the Commercial Division of the High Court of Malaya.(wikipedia)
