These shops are quite old. This is more like your neighbourhood shops - those that you can find in your housing areas.
There is a new digital mall in this area, thus the heavy traffic. The white vans are mobile hawkers - normally selling 'tau fu fa' (soya milk and beancurd) and 'goreng pisang' (now I know the fancy name for this is banana fritters hehe)

Jeruk - or preserved fruits are quite popular among the ladies here as tidbits. Salt and sugar would be the main seasoning I guess. Some are sweet, some are sour. There are preserved mango, guava, papayas and many others which I am not sure what they are made off.
I never like them though. I prefer preserved vegies, those that can be cooked.

I still prefer the coventional ones with just plain colors. As a kid, I have always wished that by holding on to a bunch of balloons, I can fly up and away. :)
It never came true, and I have always wondered if it's all the chocolates and sweets that I took that made me too heavy for the balloons to take off.. haha..
Have a great weekend!!

These flats at section 17 are quite old. May be one of the first few flats built around the area 15-20 years ago.
One of the cool things around these flats is they have quite a few really good restaurants. The chinese restaurant seen here is well known for it's 'char-siew' (a kind of roasted pork) and fried chicken. Any cool places to eat around your home?

Picture of an old launderette in Section 17. I think it must be in business for quite some time seeing the machines are rather old. Despite the old machineries, the clothes seem to come out crisp and clean.
It is situated on the ground floor of a flat. Therefore it must have been providing good service for the residents for years.
Having a launderette near your home is quite convenient. Especially if you are too busy with work and your clothes need dry cleaning. Do you have one in your neighbourhood?

This photo is taken in Cameron Highlands. A few hours drive from my city. Agriculture is the main activity, given the cool climate and fertility soil of the highlands. A good place for a short weekend getaway for the city folks.
Where do you go when you need a break from the hustle and bustle?
Have a great weekend!! :)

In 2 days time, the people of Malaysia will make a choice. They will choose how they hope the
country will be within the next 5 years.
I will be one of them.
The picture shows the icon of BN, the incumbent party.
How would you change about your country?
I will be away for the next 2 days. Performing National Duty.
May there be wisdom, justice and equality.

This the menu for traditional chinese restaurants. Instead of putting them in a booklet, the dishes are all listed on the wall. Not many refer to it though, most will refer to the waiter / waitress or just ask for the specialities. What you see here are mainly seafood cuisines.
