Shady silhouettes against a vanilla sky, swaying gently in the cool evening breeze.
What's not to love?
MAYBE THE SIGHT AT THE FOOT OF THESE TREES
i.e. THE SIGHT BELOW
IS WHAT YOU WOULD NOT LOVE:
Piles upon piles of trash, compressed over time, a habitat for rats as big as kittens — animals who do not fear the lazy cats of SS13, and who feed on toxic waste, including the rubber/plastic tubing in cars. Yuck...
The stench of SS13 pasar malam leftovers (fishy smells, decaying fruits, etc). Plus rubbish flung randomly by the residents of the flats (many of whom are immigrants, their post-factory lives condensed into a 500 sq ft unit with about five others).
Up close, the presence of loan sharks still very much intact.
UGLY MALAYSIANA is disgusted that there are people in Subang Jaya (including UGLY MALAYSIANA'S VERY OWN PARENTS) and many other LOW COST FLATS living with such poor conditions. Poor hygiene, poor fumes, poor sight for our already sore eyes. Poor poor people!
U.M. urges the city councils to do something about this mess. Tar up the horrible dirt roads that trap water and form toxic murky puddles that breed bacteria and flies. Even stray cats deserve cleaner water to drink from. Have a better trash-collecting system. Things can be low cost but decently done, not in this state of disregard.
Just because the SS13 flats are unoccupied by datins and important people who have power to raise issues does not mean that the current population of SS13 (and other low cost flat areas) have to suffer such appalling states of being. It is 2012 and it still looks like a war zone, tainted by neglect. 1Malaysia, where r u? This looks like the side of Malaysia that is tucked away because it is too ugly. It's hidden and rotting away, rotting the spirits of those who live there.
Dear Mr. Prime Minister, you spend RM80 million on a birthday bash. What about spending just a fraction of that to improve the daily sights (and therefore lives) of the tens of thousands of poor Malaysians affected by this malaise?
