boundary's end


I was in the passenger seat. I'd just like to get that straight. This is the 'gate' that marks the end of the KL boundary as you drive into Petaling Jaya. The PJ Municipal Council is currently asking for City status. Until today, it has been a satellite township of Selangor (one of the 14 States in Malaysia.) KL, which is part of the Federal Territories, sits in the centre of Selangor. PJ and KL aren't separated by distance much and without traffic, is only a 10-15 minute drive between the two. The Time-Machine, however, stopped in the 70s in PJ. You'll find quaint houses, shops and very few high-rise buildings. That, as with all townships seeking City status, is changing.

Great structure - we have nothing like this here in the UK -

Agree with you on the scooter front too - hate those little things - the drivers have some sort of inferiority complex - like they have to drive really aggressively to make up for the fact they are riding a poor escuse for a real vehicle
