Theme Day: Feb 08 - What is Your City Known For?



It's Theme Day again! This time the theme is: What is your city known for?

Hee...hee....the first thing that comes to mind whenever you mention Subang Jaya in Malaysia is TRAFFIC JAM!!!
We are a developed suburb and traffic jam is part and parcel of our lives here. But after living here for almost 15 years, we already get used to it and know all the short cuts to skip the journey! Welcome to Subang Jaya's traffic jam! This photo is taken at a key junction on Jalan Kewajipan! There is traffic jam there anytime of the day!

It's the bit in brackets in the thumbnails (Selangor) that speaks to me...and it positively screams: PEWTER! And gorgeous objects made from that pewter.

Very cool photo. Love the gigantic billboard!

Lots of traffic jams allow for photo taking from the car, especially if you aren'driving. :P

A nightmare for so many of us...Nice shot!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
