年十四。灯佑苏丹街 Light A Lantern, Save Jalan Sultan

上一次的活动后,这次于年十四,茨厂街社区艺术计划办了‘灯佑苏丹街’,让大家有机会聚在这条街为它祈福,也有机会再看看它多两眼。


因为农历新年的前一周,苏丹街业主接获土地局发出的最后通知,公函中阐明,如果业主没有在1月30日(年初九)前签署共同协议书,当局将援引征地法令,强行征地建捷运,苏丹街随时消失在历史版图上。

­
当天出席的人真的很多,比上次还多。
是来捍卫文化的?是来凑热闹的?是来拍照的?还是路过的?
我不知道我们这群出席者可否带来什么改变,但至少大家努力的表达了意愿,就是让苏丹街得以完整保留。
People gathered at Jalan Sultan to support the people's choice of re-alignment of the proposed MRT line and also to object Land Acquisition. 
This is the subsequent of the news where the residents on the street have to vacate their properties during the six months or so of tunneling works for the KVMRT project, while the government will also be required to strengthen the heritage buildings should they be affected by the works underground. 

They will be compensated, however there was no guarantee that the acquired Jalan Sultan properties would eventually be returned to the owners although the authorities were working on a solution to allow traders to return to their Chinatown lots being acquired for the KVMRT.

 The authority placed a board for people to voice out the thoughts for the MRT project. But will they take it seriously?








See Yap Ah Loy s?






Got the chance to witness Thaipusam parade by 12am.
They were walking towards Batu Caves, which is far far away.
有幸可以‘顺便’目睹大宝森节的游行。


Pudu cultural map for RM10. Worthwhile! Loving it.


欢乐的庆典过后是什么呢?
我不懂。
就拭目以待吧,我等着好消息。
