Malaysian beggars

Saw this today in Temerloh, Pahang, Malaysia during the Sunday Market Day.

Malaysia is a rich country, but do we have to come to this?

Do we really care?

We think we are civilised! We are dirty.

Soon my town will be converted into a City, but is it ready? Are we redy? Is this City status for real or is it just politically motivated, the people thinking that we have progressed, and that we are already are advanced? Look closely, is a City status just a sham?.

We want to look civilise, so we built pavements. Is this what the town folks get after about 1 year now?

Right smack in the centre of my town the long uncut grass, the rubbish all over the places, the dirty stalls next to the ribbish and the smelly drain. How do people tolerate all these, how do they eat the food at the stalls, don't they have sensitive noses?

They can hardly tell the difference between a flower pot and a rubbish bin. Its a rubbish bin now, a broken rubbish bin. Its a public amenity, a mean of beautifying the town but do the public care?.

And this guy, putting his rubbish on the road where the traffic is quite heavy. What id a vehicle runs over them won't it be a mess? Not his problem I suppose. Such stupid attitude ....... selfish.

These back streets are nothing to be proud of. Maybe they are cleaned once in a while, but can't they clean them more often? And the rats in these streets, they are half the size of a normal cat. Wish I can take photographs of these rats.

In the town centre, in Kuantan Malaysia, in an open ground.

Why are we so dirty?

Ugly people in beautiful garden

What I saw this morning, Monday, when I went for my morning walk. These ugly people must have been busy over the weekend.

There were a lot of people about this morning but nobody even raise an eyelid. Ugly people all over ........... ugly Malaysians.

Lights, Taman Gelora Kuantan, Malaysia

Oh Taman Gelora, Kuantan, Pahang (Malaysia). Your compound lights need a lot of care.

Globe and bulb missing?

What happened to the glass globe!Missing? Broken? Not replaced?

Everything missing but the wires!

What? Post missing!

And a normal healthy light post looks like this

There is still hope.......................!

Yesterday I was pretty annoyed with the state of being in Kuantan Town (Malaysia) ( but this morning I took a different route for my morning walk.

The surau (small masjid) on the fringe of the town is neglected but at least it got a sign board.

The big drain behind the town is overgrown, grass seems never cut but the big water pipes are still intact and frsh treated water still flows well into the town.

The other side of the big drain, overgrown but water still flowing in the drain towards the sea. In fact one can see fishes in the not so clear drain water. And at high tide this drain holds the tide water from the sea, preventing flooding of the surrounding areas.

Abandoned houses, but one can still see signs of activities nearby. All is not totally lost.

And a quaint little street hidden from view, at the back of the town. Old houses still well maintained (you can see someone sweeping in front of a house) and certain houses have been renovated, someone building big bunglow houses where some old terrace houses used to stand.

Do we really care? I suppose we do some time.

You don't want to.............. but.........

You don't want to see them but you cannot help it. They were there.
These images were taken this early morning when I was strolling in Kuantan Town.
And I don't buy any excuse from them. The scenes that I don't want to see.

But give them credit, they do try to look after your health by trying to get rid of Aedes Mosquitoes which spread Dengue Fever.
Hey, what about all the big rats in town, how do one gets rid of them, or even control them?
