When one is poor and have a family of 6 to raise and all you can afford is a one room flat, this is one of your very few options: PKNS- government subsidised - Flats. Look closely at the dimensions, an entire family lives in a space less than 800sq.ft. (that's one window and one balcony.) I have an uncle who lives in one in Cheras, another suburb of KL. He's a very happy man and will never ask for more. Everyone in here is fit and thin. No, not from the lack of food but from the absense of an elevator.
Oh, how nice of the Mercedes to drive past!
