A Sad Farewell to All!

Dear Readers, Friends, Couples and Photographers,

It's a sad day for all of us @ The Heritage Station Hotel Kuala Lumpur. We regret to inform you that The Heritage Station Hotel, Kuala Lumpur has, after a 15 year court battle between the operator and landlord,  ceased operations with effect from 31st May 2010.

We thank you all for your patronage and support of our old hotel and of course our National Heritage here in Malaysia. We hope that the new operator, if any, will undertake to continue our crusade of promoting this building of National Heritage, and we hope, that they will continue to make it accessible to all.

We had put a lot of our heart and soul into this grand old Hotel, and it was fun while it lasted.

Once again, we thank you all for the wonderful memories and in supporting our buildings of National Heritage.

Lloyd Gan
on behalf of The Staff & Management
The Heritage Station Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

N.B. We will still maintain this site as a tribute to all the couples and photographers who came and made us on of the best places to have your prewedding photograph taken. Without your support, we would not have so much fun and making things happen!

HotelClub Awards 2009



All of us at The Heritage Station Hotel, Kuala Lumpur were very surprised to have received an email from HotelClub stating that we were one of the finalist for The Best Hotel in Malaysia. WHAT? You don't believe it? Well, neither do we .... Yes, it has been an extremely interesting year here for us in the Hotel, but to be nominated for an award? Hurm ... very interesting .... Deep down inside, we know that we won't stand a chance as we were up against 3-5 Star Hotels and Resorts, so we were extremely elated to be a Finalist in HotelClub Awards 2009!

We would like to thank all of you who had supported and voted for us! Our Boss went down to Singapore on 25 November 2009 to receive our certificate as one of the most popular hotels in Asia! Even he was pleasantly surprised (pleasantly shocked is more likely)! On behalf of the owner, management and staff of The Heritage Station Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, we cannot thank you enough and yes, we know we have a lot more work cut out for us in the near future!

The Indonesian Connection ......


It is very surprising that we got a lot of emails coming from all over the world, in fact our prewedding photography efforts seemed to be gaining a life of its own as we are trying so hard to promote Bangunan Stesen Keretapi (K.L. Train Station lar .....) right here in Kuala Lumpur within our meager means We have had applications from India, The Middle East right up to England and Norway! This is really very strange! Recently we got an application from Indonesia and the couple Wawan & Hanna wanted to bring the entire team up from Indonesia to have their shoot here! Oh dear ... we were contacted by their photographer Houward Pogijanto from The House of Viin, Palembang, Indonesia .... Wah ... the entire team came to the hotel just for their pre wedding photoshoot! Goodness!!

The Return of Amy Tan. So, JUST DANCE!

I am very surprised to be blogging about this Lovely Lady again ... they have been so active that I too am pleasantly taken a back! In fact, this is the third time I am writing about Amy Tan, who first contacted me, The Hotel Station Master (gosh, soon to be relinquished, but I like that title ... hee hee) on 07 May 2008 (our article here) and again on 14 September 2008 (our article here) when I wrote an ode to Amy and here Hubby, Tony, using My Fairlady's song lyrics .....

Anyone remember this sweet petite lady?

Modelle en Hôtel Heritage Station, Kuala Lumpur, Malaisie


"Bonjour monsieur , je voudrais parler au directeur Hôtel", said the caller on the line. What? What was that? Ok, ok, I did learn French years ago when I was still in college, but the guy really sounded fluent on the other end ..... imagery of Suave French-ness came to my mind ... and when he introduced himself, I was even more amazed! Modelle, the French Based Magazine has finally arrived in Malaysia and the caller was none other then Shaiful Nizam Mukhelas, the Managing Editor of this Magazine. They had wanted to do a launch of their Beauty 50 for their "Girls Next Door" Series for aspiring models in Malaysia and they were doing it for  free, something which we understand and support! They also wanted The Heritage Station Hotel as a Venue for one of their photo shoots and as it was a great effort, we agreed! After 3 grueling days of shooting, we leave you with the results of MODELLE MAGAZINE MALAYSIA, inaugural launch; October issue 2009.
