Kuala Lumpur is blessed with abundance of shopping centres, but still, we are lacking of the world-class ones compared to our neighbors, Bangkok and Singapore. Besides the likes of Suria KLCC, Pavilion KL, Mid Valley Megamall, Sunway Pyramid and 1 Utama, the others are just a stop centre for teenagers and youths to chill and hang out. This upcoming Nu Sentral will surely be well-received and be at a class of its own. With state-of-art features and designs as well as great accessibility, it will be surely welcomed by everybody.
