    [QFDTE=Sentinel;578376]If on flexi interest rate, you must have got a shock of your life when the crisis hit? 14% BLR wor.... almost pengsan myself too...[/QUOTE]

    That was the best time for me. FD was giving 12.5%!! Shiok lah!! And pick up shares at "promo" prices.

    And talking about SJ/USJ, nothing like those days when we moved into our brand new house in SS12 in 1976. So peaceful and real Arizona country xcept for the planes. There was only 1 food outlet in SS15. Later a 2nd in SS14 call Bonanza! Took only about 10 min to drive to work in PJ!! Those were the days!!

    Patrick, you and I know those good ole days are GONE forever..never to return! The old world charm in KL also vanished forever, spoilt to huge extent. Finished, FINITO, Sayonara, Bye bye..next generation inherit what was sowed..
    The more "immigrants" working, residing, buying homes in Selangor and Klang Valley will offer huge challenges in all resources, from water to power requirements to COL to everything else. Probably over 80% people here originate or born in other states, not born and bred in KL. During festive season..majority balik kampung.. ghost city then..

    Am I mingling with a bunch of monkeys, or you got the above response as well?
    No, you are not.. (1) and (3) are true for usj.

    SJ (not usj) is a better place with lesser traffic congestion than usj.

    USJ have equal or maybe the edge in attraction and appeal than SJ which makes it busier place.
    1. Taipan area, from commerce, banking to shopping to food
    2. The Summit complex, One city, The Main Place, USJ19 Mall, Mydin, Giant supermarket.
    3. Convenient access to Puchong, Shah Alam and beyond.
    4. More high rise residential homes.
    All the above contribute to USJ being a very busy township. Obviously there's more contributing factors to it all.
    I'm thinking people may perceive Subang and USJ or Subang Jaya on the whole is a better place and better managed than Cheras and Ampang put together.

    Best if you have a bungalow nestled amongst old angsana trees on cool top of the hill at SS19 and come out for food and shops in USJ... during the 1997 Asian Financial Crash, there were numerous beautiful bungalows in SS19 up for grabs... unfortunately I too did not make much because the other half refused to believe that KLCI was doing a Pandalele Renong 30m dive...

    wahhh....

    1. Wah that place so Jam - was given that remarked also, but I do ask them... what time you go to office ( most staying around KL) .. surprisingly, mostly around 6.30 -7.00 the least... I said i go out at 7.15, and last roll call is 7.45 am... is if not i will be late...it took me 30-45 mins to reach bangsar, they took 45 mins -1 hour
    2. Rich bugger - this I got alot.... even my mom was surprised when she went to same pasar malam supplier but different location .. one in sg way and one in SS14 .... my mom asked him... aritu harga lain, he replied.. ohh sini Subang jaya laaa...
    3. Black area, many home break-ins, muggings, high crime area, how you sleep at night - breaks-in... yeah alot.. mugging...but it is imrpoving now that with all these gatedarea, plus rondaan...


    I was born, schooled and raised in PJ, and later stayed with my auntie when they shifted to SS18. It was in 1982. back then SS18 was the furthest housing are in SJ. Plane flew on our heads, till the airport shifted to sepang. first few months, we can not sleep due to no plane noise...

    After schooling, moved to SS12 with my brother, no NPE... started working... taking the earliest bus at 6.00 am just to reach KL by 8.00 am anything later, reached KL after 9.00.. the for sure kena taruk from the boss... backed then, SRI JAYA bus was like every 30 minutes... after few years mpm shifted to USJ 2 renting a house...and got married... got myself a proton iswara.... driving taht time was heaven... 8.00am came out from USJ 2, took a short cut cutting the KESAS to SS18... still manged to reached then Medan tuanku office by 8.45am..

    later bought a house in 1994, moved in 1995 and have seen the traffic started to grow... and neighbours coming in and go...

    one thing I noticed... the more the exit they built , more cars took USJ or cut through USJ to go to Shah Alam, puchong, Kajang,... we can see it by the number of cars flocking the T-junction at USJ9 towards puchong...and the number of cars passing USJ12 passageway from USJ16 going to subang jaya...

    but all in all, whatever ppl perception of USJ, I still LOVED USJ.... as far as I know, the only place we can still find all RACESplaying on the same field regardless of age at USJ12 and USJ11 padang...

    KUDOS ppl... keep it up...

    my 2 cents...

    I was renting a condo in SJ in the late 90s and early 2000 because I am not sure where (Malaysia or Singapore) will be the place I will settle down eventually. Wife is a Singapore PR and worked in Singapore then, I was also working in Singapore, hence I don’t need a nest in KL.

    I used the rental allowance allocated for me in Singapore to rent an apartment in Kim Sia Court (a stone throw away from Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Orchard road). There is still enough balance from the allowance to rent a condo in SJ !! The SJ condo is for my sisters who just started working in KL and for us when sometimes we flew to KL to drive back to Melaka. It is nice once a while to drive a car for 1.5hours at the highway speed which I can’t do in Singapore at all.

    Seldom spent much time in SJ then but I like the exclusive enclave where the condo is located, there is a recreational park with jogging trek about 10 feet away from my place. Eventually when we decided that life should be better over here, we bought a bigger unit and settled down in SJ.

    I think SJ is a good place to live. ( I can be wrong as I have not stayed in other areas in PJ).

    I quite like The Olives in SS 16/1. The current market price is around RM510 per sq ft. Wait and see lah.

    Put it this way lah..all in all, the NEXT generation or your offspring is finding it very difficult to own a terrace 22 X 70 home because of outrageous prices. Those, and I believe nearly all here already own a home bought decades ago at price within affordability and considered very lucky the search or phase is over. Next generation are going to hutang for life just to own a decent home here. They just have to earn more, no doubt to that..its like its ordained and your 1gahmen can do NOTHING much except offer chicken coops to just the lucky ones able to acquire it.
