Painting Jalan Sultan Mural to save heritage


Over 50 local artists joined forces to create awareness on the importance of preserving heritage by painting on a once neglected and dilapidated wall of a pre-war shophouse next to the
carpark on Lot 49, Jalan Sultan last Saturday 15th October 2011.

The group’s sincere efforts to support the local community in preserving the century-old buildings along a stretch of Jalan Sultan for its heritage deserved to be appreciated and praised.

The buildings are to be acquired by the authorities to build an underground rail station for the Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) project.

The Jalan Sultan Mural painting event which started at 9.00 am and completed by 1.00 pm.was organised by a local daily The Star.

ICI Paints sponsored the cleaning and painting of the wall and the paints for the artists.

Nine Emperor Gods celebration in Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya


The 40-year old
Leng Eng Tian Temple located in Jalan SS9A/4, Sungei Way, Petaling Jaya celebrated the Nine Emperor Gods Festival for the last time this year.

Next year the celebration will be held at the new and bigger temple located at nearby Jalan SS9A/5. It is now under construction and nearing completion.

The land on which the temple sits will be taken over by the developer who has provided an alternative land for the new temple.

The nine-day celebration started from the first day to the ninth day of the ninth moon (Sept 27 – Oct 5, 2011) according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

Thousands of devotees thronged the temple to offer prayers to the Gods.

The grand finale to the festival was the fire-walking ceremony where devotees walk over burning charcoal.
