From whichever direction u come find your way to Jalan Ampang and if u r coming from KL i.e Ampang Park,Crown Princess Hotel pass d famous Risda building. Pls do not try to look for any Hevea Brasiliensis trees understanding the inadequacies of comprehending and digesting words infrequently used by some of my fidus achates,in Malayasia we call this plant rubber tree.
Pass the Plaza Ampang City up on to the flyover, set your trip meter to 0 (if make sure your meter is working),pass Ampang Point and De Palma hotel on your left,pass the first set of many Traffic lights you will be going through.
