  • The five petals of the Bunga Raya symbolise the Rukunegara (the Five Principles of Nationhood), while the colour red represents courage.
  • From early times, the hibiscus has been known to have many uses, mostly medicinal. Its petals were commonly used to darken and enhance women’s eyebrows; while some people still use the roots of the hibiscus plant as a cure for fever and other ailments. Skin eruptions and glandular troubles are said to be relieved by the application of the juice obtained from its leaves and roots while a poultice prepared from the leaves is often applied to cure headaches. It can also used as a shoe polish to shine your shoe.

China Town - Petaling Street

  • Petaling street is also known as "China Town"
  • Chinese Dominated Area
  • Open Air Day and Night Market (Best to go at Night)
  • Bargain Hunter
  • Shopping and Food Heaven.
The History
  • The original Chinatown centred on Market Square.
  • Back in the olden days when Malaysia was still known as ‘Tanah Melayu’ or Malaya, the Chinese had come to this country to work at the tin mines. However, during the Selangor Civil War, the tin mines were temporarily abandoned. The Chinese returned after the war, only to find the mines flooded. Yap Ah Loy, an influential Chinese figure back then, had opened a tapioca mill on Petaling Street in his bid to persuade the Chinese to stay on.
  • Petaling Street is called ‘Chee Cheong Kai’, meaning ‘Starch Factory Street’ in Cantonese, referring to its history as the centre for the production of tapioca flourback then.


  • Petaling Street is now sheltered- keep you dry and out of the heat.
  • 2003- Government spent RM11.3mil to face lift with two large Chinese arches placed at both ends of the street to welcome visitors, and a roof cover was made covering the street, dubbed as the "Green Dragon".

Operation Hour
  • 10am - mid night
  • 365 days a year
Getting There-Good Network of Public Transport
  • Major bus routes operate through this area – just take the ones heading for ‘Kotaraya’.
  • LRT - Pasar Seni or Masjid Jamek station
  • Monorail (Maharajalela station)
Check out More food at below link:

Look out for Yook Woo Hin restaurant on Petaling Street. It is one the longest surviving family-run food places in KL.

It is one of the oldest and most famous Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur. Established in 1926 by a Lee Hoi from Canton, China, it was located, as it is now, along Petaling Street.

Yook Woo Hin, meaning "jade pot", has been run by three generations of Lees. The current owner, Lee Keng Chee, the grandson of Lee Hoi, has maintained the place with memorabilia like the founder's portrait and old teapots. Even the old staff is retained as far as possible to retain the work culture and ambience.

It is no wonder that you still find huge crowds, especially older people with their families, at the restaurant.

Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Dance Festival.

OVER the past few weeks, we practiced the dance on Tuesday and Friday nights at the Malaysia Tourist Information Centre (Matic) to learnt the steps of the various dances for the Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Dance Festival.

Arrived at Dataran Merdeka at 7.30am.

Colourful Balloon in the air...

"Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia dance carnival was introduced by the Ministry of Tourism last year and many people from around the world witnessed it as our dancers performed this at the Malaysian Pavilion in the recent Shanghai World Expo 2010 where about seven million people visited our pavilion," said Dr Ng. Yen Yen

Opening Speech from Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the Prime Minister.

The Dance Started!

Satu Malaysia Dance incorporated seven dances representing the country's multi-culturalism: Zapin, Chinese dance, Indian dance, Sewang, Sabahan dance, Sarawakian dance and Malaysian Siamese dance.

It incorporates the dances of different ethnic groups throughout Malaysia and comprises the Malaysia Truly Asia dance, Zapin Bunga Hutan(Malay), Ma Ching Fei (Chinese), Jambatan Tamparuli (Sabah),Pattupadaya (Indian), Puteri Santubong (Sarawak), Tarian Orang Kita(Sewang) and Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia (a mix of the seven dances). All were put together to define the 1Malaysia concept.

Attired in colourful T-shirts, the crowd danced in unision, collectively forming a beautiful mass movement. The dance carnival, held for the second time after its successful staging last year, has been recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records as the largest dance troupe ever assembled in this country.
Dataran Merdeka here was turned into a huge dance floor yesterday morning more than 15,000 people from all walks of life, including foreigners, took part in the Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia dance carnival organised by the Tourism Ministry.
