About the Show
*Trigger warning: self-harm, bullying, female harassment
*We highly recommend utilizing an e-hailing service for your convenience, as it will transport you directly to the entrance of kongsiKL.
In the event that you decide to drive, we suggest parking at the K88 food court. From there, proceed by walking to your left on Jalan Klang Lama towards the BHP petrol station. Shortly after passing the BHP station, you will notice a green sign ‘Getha’. Between the BHP and Getha is the path you should take. Once you reach the end of that road, make a left turn, and you will find kongsiKL situated on your left-hand side.
Hope you enjoy the show.
And here is the video.
