It was my second time stepping foot into Federal Kuala Lumpur after more than 4 decades.  I was feeling nostalgic when stepping foot back to this memorable place after so many decades. Below is is an old photo taken at The Federal Kuala Lumpur at the Revolving Bintang Restaurant more than 45 years ago. I went looking for this old pic when I was about to write a blog post for the recent food tasting session
