I have just moved back to a familiar neighbourhood in Petaling Jaya from my former rented place in Puchong. However, the same sight and smell greeted me when I went to the Section 17 wet market for my lunch last week.
Like usual, the place, after the wet market operating hours, was littered with rubbish, chicken feathers, rotten fish heads and other smelly garbage. This does not look like one of the most affluent and educated parts of Selangor that we know. It looks pretty much like a third world wet market.
Worse, the Petaling Jaya Selatan MP Hee Loy Sian service centre is just right opposite the market. Perhaps both Hee and Edward Lee, the assemblyman of Bukit Gasing can help to do something about the place. It is time we educate the store operators and buyers about cleanliness. This is something many of us, voters, had hoped to change in the last general election.
Back in Penang, the situation hasn't change as well. Around Georgetown is still dirty and worn out. Rightly, we need to give the new government some time to correct the past neglect. Perhaps it is timely for politicians to stop the ruckus and rhetoric in both the state assemblies and parliament and focus on doing their job.
We should start by improving CLEANLINESS!
