Every student that have the intention to pursue education outside of Malaysia must take a special English language exam. There are two types of exam. TOEFL or IELTS. I took my IELTS exam last week at British Council, KL. The Britich Council office is located at Wisma Selangor Dredging- a beautiful 4 block building with a courtyard. The ambience of the place is very cooling and relaxing. Wisma Selangor Dredging is a commercial office building, nestled along Jalan Ampang.
I managed to take just a few photos of the courtyard area because I was busy enjoying myself there :)
View from the British Council towards the courtyard. The water feature gives a very welcoming (sense of welcoming) and cooling effect.
Palms, Palas, Spider Lily and spiderwort. Even though a courtyard receives sunlight, we have to remember- tall buildings allows a brief dash of sunlight. It means, no flowering plants is suggested to be planted in the site. As can be seen here, the plants chosen are green and plants that need shade.
Surprisingly, I spotted a tropical swallowtail moth. I wonder how it got here.
A dash of sunlight at around 11a.m.
The water feature ensures high humidity level around this area. The aerial roots of this Ficus helps collect water and nutrients.
Refreshingly cool. At the British Council, apart from english exams, they also held English classes for kids and even for adults. So if you feel the need to improve your English, this is a very nice place to study.
Tradescantia zebrina or spiderwort. It took me quite a while to recall its name.
This plant gives an interesting dash of purple amidst the green in the courtyard.
Cobble stone paving completes the look of this courtyard.
