CORRECTION 15/12, 12.15pm
Kristal and Nobisha pointed out that the face in the picture is of the Mayor of Melaka, not the KL Datuk Bandar. My apologies to all.
But still .... what a BIG electronic welcome poster.

We used to associate Lenin, Mao, and Saddam with superbillboard-sized portraits and statues of themselves. Right here in Kuala Lumpur, these "greats" would stand no chance beside the latest picture of our own Datuk Bandar.
Thank you MM for alerting me to this storeys-high splendor. She sounded quite alarmed in her SMS.MM: OMG, have you see that the DBKL building on its side a giant pic in lights of the Datuk Bandar and a lighted sign that reads "Selamat Dtg Hj Zaini Md Nor, Datuk Bandar KL"? Not even PM or Elyas Omar when he DB had anything like this. The WHOLE building has his face!More pictures, HERE. (Pics were taken tonight. I haven't found a way to amend the date on the camera yet)
