Ampang Point..

Ampang Point is a new township. It served the people of Ampang Jaya, Taman Tun A.Razak and Taman Hijau.. It is a township that grew up in a hurry, just fifteen years and today a popular spot for folks that live around ten kilometer radius. It is always crowded with people. Parking cars has became a big problem, so if I want to do some banking and settle my bills at the TM Point or the BSN Bank, I had to be there just before ten in the morning. Parking lots would be full after ten in the morning but if you take your time to cruise along you would find one since not everyone park their car for long there. After doing their business there they would surely move. In the evening this place became a sort of another Bangsar, an eating garden of a sort for those that want dine in the evening..All the major fast foods outlet are there. So too are the Mamak Restaurant and Chinese food outlets. There are also a few fine dine places that great to have dinner with family or friends. A favorite of mine is the Secret Recipe...Ampang Point is my town now and I love to be there in the morning and wonder along. Sometime would settle for a Teh Tarik and Roti Canai at one of the Mamak Restaurant. Images above is the parking problem in the vicinity of the Shopping area...One of the indicator of prosperity, a country that is already in the first world category...

True enough Pak. My daddy used to write to the President(s) of MPAJ on the issue when those people were active towing cars for not parking at the appropriate lots. What they should do is to clamp only. Tow away only for those who really block/obstructing the traffic. Most of the 'victims' are the ones that are not familiar to this place... the Mid Easterner, Koreans and visitors.

...btw, very nice background song. I was introduced to one, sung by Pak Sam of an Indonesian group,D'Llyod. Salam Eid Adha.

ali haikal, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the parking problem at Ampang Point. Well, there are rules and regulation, so just follow it and we would be alright. At the same time MPAJ must also use some commonsense before taking some drastic action. Well, that is the reality of living. Have a nice day.
