This is what our local authorities can do for the citizen. If you choose to walk here, you are walking at your own risk. This kind of poor infrastructure is found everywhere in the city and I had been few times almost fell onto the road because of misstepping on these uneven tiles. There is just no accountability from the responsible department.

Looking at this corner unit of shoplot at junction of Theater Street & Osborne Street, the "skin" of the building is not torn down but inner structure is completely replaced. I would gladly believe this project is going to preserve the original appearance of the shop. Some owners may begin to act differently in restoration, where maintaining building surface could be value added on their properties.

This is the first time I come to Maybank Building's multi storey car park to view the Old Town. Looking towards south, Kinta Heights is the most eye catching structure among other low rise buildings. Anyway, it would be sad to see there are many empty slots because of old building demolition. There are also many rebuilt structures among the old one creating inharmony appearance in Old Town.

Just mentioned in my last post of when would the clear sky returns, a downpour yesterday had eashed away the haze & give us back the fresh atmosphere. In the sunny & warm day, I was pumping petrol along Kuala Kangsar Road. In the great blue sky, I see this big piece of twisting itself forming an "S" shape. I can't explain how would it looked like but it just attracted me to think of a giant brush had splashed onto the sky.

If you remember, I have been not only once but many times mentioning about beautiful heritage buildings at Lau Ek Ching Street shall be well preserved. Today I just found another great restoration work done on one of the shoplots turning it into a beauty salon. The building after restoration looked so beautiful and I am just hoping more will be taken up by new owner or tenant & given new life.

The warm weather has been prolonged for more than 2 weeks. Day by day we are creating polluting gases & some are still burning rubbish at open air happily without worrying the deteriorating environment. All these actions have turn into a result like this morning. This is not morning mist but haze. The city is now heavily polluted & we can hardly see the sun rise. When driving at Tasek Road, objects at far are all seen to be blur.
