    Default Former SAL college, Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, January 2017


    1. The History
    This is the former complex of the SAL College on Jalan Tun Razak. It occupies a fair sized plot of land and now it is pretty overgrown. SAL is an abbreviation of Setia, Amanah and Luhur, meaning Loyalty, Trustworthiness and Nobility. Founded in 1982, since its inception, SAL maintained a strong commitment to the ideals of educational freedom exercised in an academic and intellectual environment. The double-storey bungalows with a courtyard pre-date the second world war. During the war itself they were apparently used as Japanese comfort women houses. After the war, they housed government officers and then, in turn, were occupied by Limkokwing College of Art and Sal College. The buildings have been abandoned for approximately 10 years.

    2. The Explore
    Right next to Jalan Tun Razak, this was a very easy access and explore. There was plenty to look at in terms of the buildings but like a lot of KL derps, there was not a great deal inside. All in all though it made for a relaxed explore.

    Very nice houses. looking at them I get the feeling of servants serving on the veranda, housekeepers keeping the house clean. A typical looking colonial house. Could be worth a renovation. I'm liking your posts from Malaya.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
