Product Description:

GROWING UP IN KL is a selection of stories from “The Bangsar Boy” column in The Star, which began in 2006. Featured alongside these stories are musings, observations and responses to the original articles by a host of Malaysian personalities including Yasmin Yusuff, Elaine Daly, Low Ngai Yuen, Carmen Soo, Ivy Josiah, Zahim Albakri, Jo Kukathas, Kuah Jenhan, Sasha Saidin, Rina Omar, Hansen Lee, Wong Chun Wai, YAM Tengku Zatashah binti Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Sean Ghazi, Daphne Iking, Aishah Sinclair, Adam Carruthers, Davina Goh, Chelsia Ng and many more.

For over a decade, Niki Cheong's “The Bangsar Boy” has been capturing the pulse of Malaysian life through the lens of a young urbanite growing up in Kuala Lumpur. Through anecdotes from his childhood, stories told by his parents or simply his experiences over the years, Niki has invited readers to reflect on what it's like to be Malaysian in the 21st century. Sometimes funny, often nostalgic, his unique way of sharing stories from his life also paints a portrait of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia from the 1980s until today.
