Somewhere in the Kuala

Somewhere In The Kuala is an illustrated children's book that follows two kids, Han and Mina, on their whimsical, curious, sometimes even treacherous, adventure as they run around KL. The book, written and illustrated by Lisa Goh and William Chew, features no words or dialogue, but paints a wondrous picture of our city, its iconic buildings and areas, and the people that make up the city's unique vibrancy - all seen through the eyes of kids.

Lisa and William join us in the studio to talk about how exploring cities themselves inspired the book, why they chose not to shy away from portraying the harsher realities of the city, their hopes for the book to advocate for a KL that is better connected and easier to navigate, and the endless eye-opening interpretations the book can inspire across ages and language barriers.
