Double parking: Symptom of Malaysian apathy?
August 30, 2013by: G Lavendran
PETALING JAYA: It appears that more and more motorists these days would rather double park to run a quick errand than spend time looking for empty parking spaces.FMT recently visited two business districts in the Klang Valley—Taipan USJ and the Sunway Giza area in Kota Damansara—which are notorious for congestion caused by double-parked cars.Subang Jaya municipal councilor Ken Chia claims that the double parking habit is a symptom of the lack of civic consciousness that afflict a large number of Malaysians.“It’s not a new issue,” he said. “We have been facing this sort of problem in busy areas for a long time.“Taipan USJ is not any different. It is an area filled with banks and other businesses. People come here almost every day to run errands.”According to Chia, the only way to change the Malaysian mindset is through education, which would include awareness campaigns.Chia knows from first-hand experience how frustrating it can be to be the victim of a motorist who double parks.“Even I have been in that situation before,” he said. “People can be so inconsiderate at times, not caring about others who have urgent business too. It is very disappointing indeed.”Halimaton Saadiah, who represents Kota Damansara in the Selangor state assembly, agrees with Chia.“It is true what the councillor says,” she said. “Double parking has become part of Malaysian culture.“People tend to put their own convenience first at the expense of others.”Halimaton supports the idea of awareness campaigns and other forms of education.

|Welcome to Kuala Lumpur.,,Truly Bangla ! Truly Nepalese ! Truly Indon !!|
But, hey, you too don't have to go to Vietnam or Myanmar or Nepal too because....I was in Saigon last week. And the market there was full of Malaysians shopping. The shopkeepers were speaking Malay and accepting ringgit. One guy said he learnt Malay from the dictionary!!. And he's never been to KL.
Kuala 'Impure'.....KL is now truly Asia !!!
Businesses here cater mostly to the Myanmarese and Nepalese. There is a sizable population of Bangladeshis and Pakistanis too.
The Indonesians are still the prevalent ethnic group in the Chow Kit area while the Filipinos hang out in the shopping malls in KLCC
and in PJ.
Browsing their national papers in a retail outlet. DVDs, CDs and magazines are available
in several lingua franca.
A well-stocked mini-market. Enterprising shopkeepers supply foreign workers here
with almost anything they need from their homeland.
Don't be fooled by the display photos. This studio is patronized mainly by foreigners applying for work permits, passports,
visas and who knows, MyKad as well?
Banners are everywhere advertising all kinds of
services on the upper floors. This one is for air fares.
Across the road from Kota Raya lies Chinatown. The stalls there are run by foreigners. It's a
matter of time before nearby Central Market is also taken over by non-Malaysians. Not too
far away is Bukit Bintang which is rapidly transforming into a Middle Eastern hot spot.
