Kuala Lumpur's first ShootUrTweeple

In in local social media scene, social media addicts or some call them enthusiast have been organising random gathering called tweetups which is basically a real live meet up organised by twitterer(people who tweets) via twitter. ShootUrTweeple is a combination of tweetups and photography with a slight twist to make it more interesting. In general, shooturtweeple is a gathering for twitterer at point A before walking along a designated route to point B while equipped with a photography gadget, be it a DSLR, SLR, Digital Cam, Lomo, 35mm film camera or any camera phone. You may be a amateur or professional, it doesn't matter

Several weeks back, April Yim initiated KL's first ShootUrTweeple and invited me to participate which i eventually did out of curiosity. The meeting point was @ Starbuck, Menara Maybank, KL before proceeding to walked across to Mydin.

Took this at the Jalan Pudu intersection with the Pudu Raya Station in the background

Ancasa Hotel along the ever busy Jalan Pudu.

DBKL's Automated Portable Public Toilet which apparently cost RM400,000.

According to recent news report, there are more than 10 of such toilets strategically placed around the KL City Centre costing more than RM4,000,000 but all of them are reported to be malfunction. There goes the public hard earn money. Malaysia Boleh!!!

Ever wonder why Malaysian always get lost while travelling and why are there so many accidents on Malaysia's road? Apart from the badly design road and rude drivers here's another reason why?

Yes, its the road sign, and best of all, they only have it in Malay Language.

Now how on earth can we expect that tourist can have wonderful experience visiting KL when we don't even have proper signage to help them get around for a start.

We spend about 3 hours plus exploring parts of KL but unfortunately we didn't manage to finish the planned route. But we certainly enjoy all the food while exploring KL together. #ShootUrTweepleKL gives us the chance to see, hear, listen and experience KL in a different dimension which we would never had chance to do so if we were to drive. Be on the lookout for the next ShootUrTweeple somewhere near your area and be sure to join in, you wont regret doing so.

Hi! I was surfing when I stumbled upon your photos: nice set ;-) Just to mention that tourists like me don't really mind signs in Malay as it's an important part of "feeling" that you're in a foreign land. Besides, it's written in Roman alphabet so one can READ :-) AND it helps interact with locals where you can ask someone. Malaysians are shy, BUT friendly! Bye.
