Giant Gantry

Another new gantry at Damansara. It's huge!!
Previously there were reports complaining on having too many billboards in PJ areas. It seemed that local council is trying to streamlined the number of approvals and licenses given.
Looking at this new structure, another advertiser will claim to have captured another prominent site to reach their consumers.
Do you have such structures in your cities?

Time Massage

The 4 words can be translated to Time Massage. I see it very often on walls of buildings. Not sure if they are really providing massage services, but sure is an inexpensive way of advertising.

Your friendly neighbourhood banker

These are flyers from money lenders, plastered on a deserted buildings. Hopefully those who are desperate for money will call these 'friendly bankers'.

Garden viewed from top. It is located in one of the shopping malls. A refreshing and relaxing place to take a break after all the shopping and walking.
Don't the frangipani leaves look like lovely green flowers?

A Break

A branch of frangipani in a bottle. Not sure if the owner thinks it's better to let it be fully hydrated before planting it into soil.
A refreshing break before returning to its root.
Frangipani is one of my favourite plants in the city. Will feature some soon.
I will be taking a break for the next 1 week. Have a great weekend!! :)

I was walking on a busy street and saw this little kitty having a nap in the pet show. The owner of the shop has made this corner real cosy for the little fella. I think it's air-conditioned as well.
Ahhhh....how nice it is to be able to have a little nap on a busy afternoon.

Lovey Dovey Sign

The rules imposed by city council apparently did not stop this couple / guy / lady from declaring their love.
Like what we always say, if you love someone, you gotta tell them. And why not like others know about it as well :)
Ever done anything outrageous for love?

Romantic walkway

We have it here as well - Thanks Alaya and Rambling Round for the comments :)
PJ, unlike other cities of the world, is not really a pedestrian friendly place. Most of the PJ residents travel by car, but sadly most of the traffic are made up of single occupant per car. Car pool is not a convenience option to many, despite it being fuel saving.
Therefore PJ does not really have many of nice, trees-lining walkway - most people don't walk much anyway.
I dream of having more walkways like these in future, because I walk a lot.

Are You Alive?

A poster stuck on to a power station.
It looks like some kinda teaser for some event / campaign. No details were written further.
Or it is just a message to remind people to live their lives to the fullest?

Slim City 1

There are many slimming centres in Damansara Utama. The funny thing is almost all of them are along the same street.
Are we really a FAT nation? or are we just VAIN?
Will feature more in the next few entries.
