The BurNIng flames of passion glows green behind rOtK!You got this, Vici! 

Sure, politicians here would like to describe the city of Kuala Lumpur as the perfect place to live, work and play in.
But obviously, these very same politicians may have just painted over feedback from some very important experts. These are key opinion leaders on the subject of Kuala Lumpur. They are the guardians of deep, dark secrets lurking in the darkest, deepest and least explored recesses of this 155 year-old city.
And before you think that these so called experts on Kuala Lumpur are so white people who were overpaid by someone to do a study about this city, well, stop… because nothing could be further from the truth! Here’s the thing about becoming an expert – you pretty much will have to live and breathe your chosen subject, pretty much on a daily basis.
So what better way to get a close to the chest insight on what’s really bothering KLites these days than asking a whole bunch of them face-to-face. Yes folks, we pretty much sacrifices most of our free time these past couple of weeks roaming around the streets of KL, and talking to its old and new residents, about what works and what doesn’t around here.
