Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia 2

Kuala Lumpur unpleasantly surprised by the ratio of pedestrians. Despite the fact that the city got hundreds of modern skyscrapers, it is convenient for people who did not. To move to Kuala Lumpur only by taxi or subway. However, especially for a walk anywhere. In the city there is a pleasant tree-lined boulevards, the embankments shamefully littered with debris and hidden structures of different people. By the way, as the abbreviated name the city? In English it is called short-KL (Kay-El), but as in Russian? Lumpur?

01. Let's start with Kaula Lumpur. In the center of the city affects the abundance of tasteless architecture.

02. The main monument to bad taste Asian - Petronas Towers. In designing a skyscraper, part Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who proposed to construct buildings in the "Islamic" style.

03. Others skyscrapers of impersonal and uninteresting. None of attractive buildings in Kaula Lumpur, I have not found.

04. Construction is actively continuing.

Here is the center of the plane.


06. As I said, in relation to pedestrians can understand the level of development of society. In Malaysia, the pedestrian can not be helped. City unprepared for the people. Moreover, over the pedestrians are simply bullied. Malaysians believe that if you do not have a car or motorcycle, you goof. And with lohami deemed not necessary.

07. Pavements terrible. In most cases, the sidewalks just end or blocked by fences. Throughout high curbs and dirt.

08. Even in the very center of the street you can not move normally. At many intersections do not have traffic lights for pedestrians, or they do not work. In the zebra nobody passed. As I said, with "lohami" is not assumed. As a result, people are forced to run across the road, risking to fall under the wheels of the next clunker.

09. I was pleasantly surprised to see a fountain in Central Park for swimming. In Omsk'll make it so. Everyone wants to bathe in the fountains, especially when the street is srashnaya heat. So why in the parks and squares are not fit for bathing fountains of people? Put extra filters at the water bowl and to change it. It is not difficult, and people will be grateful. Of course, this does not apply to the fountains in the historic places and areas. Under the walls of the Kremlin's Okhotny bathed only trash. Gentlemen swim in the park!

10. Look how cool!

11. The children loved it. Excellent point of attraction for the residents. The only thing that darkens the rest in Central Park, a large amount of protection.People with a whistle ban to sit on the lawn and watch that no one is noisy. Just like in school.

12. House with cool water. Here you can drink and wash.

13. In the pedestrian zone of people drive up to the electric vehicles.

14. See how elegant shape with the police.

15. We were pleasantly surprised stormwater device. Lattice every 5 meters. The individual bars on the sidewalks. In such a system will never be puddles. We put the grid at random, eventually turning into the road in the spring of the river. Storm sewer system in Moscow is in urgent need of reconstruction.

16. Rules of Conduct in the mosque. Islam - the state religion. In addition to the Malays in Malaysia, there are many Chinese and Indians. In some cities, the Chinese are the majority. They play cards, drink alcohol, and organized brothels. In general, tempt the faithful Malays.

17. Br-rr-rr. The horror. For the construction of the towers were to be used only materials produced in Malaysia, so it was impossible to provide the necessary quantity of steel construction. Wash 16 000 windows of the tower is one month. The towers are 10 000 people.


19. A typical example. The poor pedestrian is standing and waiting for an opportunity to cross the road. Separate traffic light for him there.

20. The city is actively under construction.

21. Good lighting on the trees.

22. The town has two rivers Klang and Gombak. Surprisingly, given the embankments of the rats. All built up. Instead of having to make a good place for walking, river shyly hid.

23. People are not here.

24. Toilet is 2 rubles. Very rare. Mostly around subway stations.

25. About public transport will be a separate report. Metro on one branch goes without drivers. Travel costs from 15 rubles to 30, depending on distance.

26. Throughout the city there are dedicated lanes for taxis and buses. The system bus is very confusing.

27. Motorcycles - one of the most accessible forms of private transport.

28. The building of the Sultan Abdul-Samad. It was built by the British in the late 19th century.

29. Park nearby. Previously, there was a field cricket. Now a place for public events.

30. Advertising very much. Some companies are fully capture the bus stop. The metro station is completely sealed with some advertising.

31. Night ..

32. That's it. Tomorrow will be interesting.


That came to an end our trip to Singapore. Next week I will publish separate reports on the most interesting topics. I'll tell you about the subway and the traffic, about unusual buildings and penalties. In the meantime, take a look a report about the last days on the island. As a bonus at the end of the post shocking photo of me in the pool. Sergei share mebya persuaded to insert photos into posts. Let's see what happens. Do not worry!

01. Despite the high concentration of skyscrapers, the city is very green. In all parks, trees. Especially here like to do green walls on the buildings of the living plants and split parks on rooftops.

02. Right in town is the Formula 1 circuit. Singapore Grand Prix - a unique stage of "F1" for several reasons. First, he goes to the city line, and secondly, it is not just an urban jungle, and the fastest. Each season, while Singapore Grand Prix held in 2008, many drivers complain about the bumps on the road. And most importantly, during this Grand Prix is ​​the only time pilots compete for the season at night under floodlights.

Curiously, the motto of the first night race in Formula 1 history - "as light as day." It appears on all official documents, it begins with a description of the autodrome, which is produced by journalists in the press center

The composition of asphalt is designed specifically for autodrome, participated in its creation the company Shell - engineers believe that it will provide 20% more grip than usual, and will last five years. Due to the fact that the track is laid in the city, the canvas was laid in one night - the movement blocked, and workers laid 15,000 tons of asphalt.

03. Port of Singapore is one of the four largest in the world, along with Hong Kong, Rotterdam and Shanghai. Singapore port is equipped with berths for vessels of various types, serving 250 lines and 150 ships daily take.

04. All of the sea in ships around the country that are waiting in line for loading-unloading. Due to the large number of ships at sea, dirty and kind of swimming is not recommended.



07. I go out for a jog in the morning, and what I see? The famous yacht "A" Andrei Melnichenko, most unusual and expensive yacht in the world! On the yacht "A" first began in 2008. It was designed by French designer Philippe Starck. Within a few people, eyewitnesses tell of unprecedented luxury. The master cabin area of ​​240 square meters. m is located at the top of cuttings. It leads to a spiral staircase, railing which cost the oligarch in 60 thousand dollars. Entrance to the cabin only through the fingerprints of the owner, which defines a special coded lock. On a giant podium with a double bed, rotating diamond pressing a button.

In general, the yacht is cool, all the rest are now millionaires in Singapore.

08.Zhiloy area in the center.

09. The recently completed the construction of this such an unusual residential complex. About it will be a separate post.

10. The symbol of Singapore, the statue MERLION, Polulyakh-poluryba. Do not understand why there crowds of tourists. Type out a bad one.

11. Chinatown.


13. Surprisingly, even the Chinese and Indian districts manage to maintain cleanliness. Of course, not perfect, but very clean. Making the pig is not an Indian - a feat.


15. I tried the famous durian - a fruit renowned both for its taste and smell. To bring the fruits of the hotels is strictly prohibited. The smell of durian is sometimes described as a mixture of rotten onions, cheese and turpentine. I smell did not seem unpleasant. But the taste, too. Tastes like a sweet potato puree with meat. Because of its taste durian earned the nickname "King of fruits."

16. But back to our favorite trotuarchikam. See, how lovely. Everywhere bushes and trees. As such you want to walk the sidewalks.

17. But! The real jungle! Scrubs - the best protection from the sidewalk machines. Nothing adorns trotuarchik like bushes.

18. Tiles of natural stone. See how all neatly done. Each stone is impregnated with love and warmth of Bangladeshi migrant workers.

19. At every step, free vayfay. And not just in the premises, but also on the street. To connect, often need a local phone number for registration.

20. Cycle path in the park. The city bikes do not go there. Almost no bicycle paths, which is strange. They say Singaporeans are not very zhaluyut bike due to lack of air conditioning in it.

21. But in the park you can pitch a tent. Some sleep in the parks. And the parks are special places for barbecue.

22. The roof of the shopping center. Beautiful fountain pool.

23. For all being watched.

24. This is a school of arts. It is built in an area of ​​Singapore in 2009 on the draft WOHA. It consists of three rectangular volumes, which are located in the classrooms and studios. Green facades of these parallelepipeds serve as filters to protect the building from dust, glare and heat. On the roof of the building is a large green recreation area with garden cottages, which includes the 400-meter track.

25. See what all the green. Beauty. These urban jungle.

26. Entrance to the school.

27. Concert Hall in view of the durian.

28. Museum of Arts and Sciences at the Marina Bay Sands. The building is in the form of a lotus, an area of ​​4,600 square meters, designed by architect Moshe Safdi.

29. Cool store bags. Architect Moshe Safdi from Boston and New York designer Peter Marino designed the building and along the interior of the store Louis Vuitton Island Maison, located in the complex of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The roof of the museum is unique, its design is specifically designed to channel rain water like a waterfall through the center of the atrium of the building.

30. And this is the subway. About it will also be a separate post ;)

31. There will be a great post about the sleeping quarters and social housing.

32. He went to the legendary Long Bar, at the Raffles. Here lives the spirit of old Singapore. Long Bar is known primarily because of the cocktail Singapore Sling.

33. The old system of ventilation.

34. On the table are gazhdom box with peanuts. Here it must be cleaned and throwing the husks on the floor. As a result, the entire floor littered with peanut husks, which is nice crunch when walking.

35. Many people believe that there is no debris in Singapore. Perhaps in the center of it is, but in the suburbs, where there is no camera, and janitors, all as always. Until the whole country is incredibly clean.

36. A lot of debris on beaches. Its brings the sea.

37. Urn for separate waste collection. For the first time in my life I figured out what to throw in a second. Typically, these boxes are clear only to local residents.

38. Evening ...


40. Golf.

41. Pedestrian bridge.
