Putrajaya Bridge



This is one of the many beautiful bridges in Putrajaya. The others have more beautiful structure. We can see them from afar but we didn't know how to reach them. As it was past dinner time and we were all hungry, we gave up looking for the other more beautiful bridges. So, I hope you like this.

Happy Labour Day tomorrow!

The design is Islamic with 8 rest areas for visitors to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the surrounding lake area that includes the Prime Minister's Office and Masjid Putra.

"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
