While we were whizzing about in Kuala Kangsar in Malaysia, we found a spot of London. The famous London telephone booth.

Actually we do see a few of these red telephone booths in Malaysia of late. I wonder who has been bringing these telephone booths in and confusing a lot of tourists... hehehhehee

One minute you think that you are in London and the next.. urmm... you are in Kuala Kangsar :) Pretty cool ya! Its like a teleporting machine.. hehhehehe.. What's more confusing is.. there's Kuala Kangsar and London written on the box.

You can read more about the history of the red booths from wikipedia link below :)

The red telephone box, a public telephone kiosk designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, is a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar, and despite a reduction in their numbers in recent years, red boxes can still be seen in many places and current or ex-British Colonies around the world. The colour red was chosen to make them easy to spot. (info from Wikipedia)

Wah, not bad la that Kuala Kangsar place, got a little London thrown in ... :D Wait, don't let the people in our government know, they might tear it down cos it belongs to the Colonial era and anything that's Colonial is bad for us ... LOL!

Nessa is right, there is one outside Victoria Station in Taipan, USJ over here ... I wonder if I can try making a call from it ... hahaha!
