Another Landslide in the Making?

I'm not sure if I'm generalising but December does not seem to be a good month normally for Malaysia. With the heavy rainfall come mishaps such as floods and landslides.

In another area in Kuala Lumpur, Cheras, residents here are living in fear of a possible landslide as shown in the photo. Hope the authorities step in for appropriate action.

Meanwhile, residents of Bukit Antarabangsa are taking legal action against government authorities for compensation for not taking appropriate remedial action earlier on when residents reported several incidents. Do they have a case, do you think?

  3. Haih! The genting's case about a decade ago is already a good lesson for us. Why do we love to put ourselves in the same situation again? Why do some people willing to earn extra $$$ in other expense?

  4. Most unfortunate that we have very short memory span when it comes to this. Should there be stricter rules for hillside development?

  5. I hope they have a case. The residents should be compensated as it's really unfair to them.
