    How is this for public perception...two abandoned houses in USJ 6. One owner I heard stays in New Zealand...the other I dunno. With people looking for a place to stay...maybe the owners can just give away these houses to shelter the needy.

    Could be either of these reasons:

    1) Too many properties. Lost count and forgotten some of it.
    2) Owner bought the house secretly and died later without next of kin knowing about it.
    3) Property is tied up in litigation.

    The bottom pic looks familiar. I must have driven pass this one.

    House at bottom is located at corner of USJ 6/7 and USJ 6/6j. House was broken into a few months back and owner happened to come back from New Zealand. She cleared the weeds but left the broken down car inside. When asked by neighbours she just didn't give any reason for leaving the house in that state.

    Its really wasteful, maybe the owner is really blady rich, at least rent it out or something, at least people staying there can keep the house in running order, free money also don't want... haih... Now house is an eye sore to the neighborhood, want to stay there or give to children have to spend a bomb to renovate...

    Lifestyle changes so food prices also increase, coffee culture also made ppl hang around for RM15 a cuppa.Not their money,but fathers money,die die also at least kopitiam at least got wifi.One thing i found out USJ food in coffeeshops still prepare by locals not like those in KL .SS19 coffeeshops food prices also reasonable.

    When I first came to Subang Jaya ,it was in 1980. There is only one way in and out , aka Kentucky . We have the biggest Shopping Complex in Asia called Subang Parade. It was voted as the best well planned housing scheme in Malaysia,. Planes
    were flying low as one of the landing approach to Subang Airport. There was no USJ. The end part of Subang jaya was SS19 and SS18. ,beyond that ( now USJ2,3,4, etc) was a palm oil estate. We use to have Hash Harries Runs along the estate (USJ 2)

    There was no exit to Bandar Sunway and Shah Alam. Traffic was a breeze and in SS15 lies a wet market ( not the current one, already demolished ).Subang Mewah (now USJ 1 ) was an agricultural sandy land. There use to be a farmer who operates a fishing pond and serves kampong chicken rice.(now Giant and Kamdar ).

    There was no hospital, colleges and Taipan. Later USJ2 ,3,4 etc started in 1989 and gain momentum till USJ18 and Taipan 2.
    Bandar sunway open the exit next to now Metropolitan College. Puchong and Shah Alam follow suit. Today jams everywhere.
    Houses are not built and designed to be gated, Robberies everywhere. My last residence was USJ18, I sold it and have no regrets. Now I stay in Taman SEA , a well gated , good mannered neighbours and most of all easy excess and no jams.

    That is Subang Jaya that I once lived.

    So!..public perception is quite correct and all relative. What is observed here is quite true and only for public issues or woes to become worse in the near future. The more its prosperous, busy, increased density with all sorts from residential to shopping, do expect crime rates and prices to become depressing or burdensome. No doubt everyone desire convenience and whatever that makes life easier, but I dare say, Malaysia is NOT prepared to maintain or upkeep such infrastructure to very civilized and high expectations. There will be flaws everywhere and like its said, gahmen is only good up to "holding the fort" till it collapse. They don't have what it takes to be a 1st world place. Just like I say, build a 20 storey low to medium high rise, people move in..5 years later..the place look like shite...even the lifts offer some words not found in the dictionary...

    The whole of Subang Jaya/USJ now has so many shopping malls/centre/hypermarkets.. Pening man... and they are clustered together
    - SS16 (Subang parade,AEON aka ex-Carrefour and Empire)
    - USJ1 (Summit, Giant & Mydin)
    - edge of USJ (USJ19 City Mall, Main Place & One-City)

    Need so many shopping places meh?

    USJ19 mall is the worst of the lot... Never seem to be able to rise. Probably management not savvy enuf...

    One City is an odd concept in terms of outlet layout. Functions more like an office building rather than a shopping mall. I have only gone there for movies, so far.

    Its all in the name of "MAKING MONEY by BUSINESS VENTURE (the usual make or break)" as its primary objective all about just THAT!.. you think they consulted you, I and 20k homes whether some shop complex is needed or not? Green lung no green lung...if there's money to be made..conservation or some killing off wildlife is almost never their concern...
    USJ19 don't have attractive anchor clients...there's practically nothing attractive there till now, if you ask me.

    Right now every entrance to SJ/USJ area is dotted with shopping complex. We are spoiled for choice.

    On normal working day, Jam because of working commute.

    On weekends, Jam because people want to visit shopping complex.

    So we are trapped, trapped! lol....

    Its all the more inevitable when there's more buildings, shopping and sorts, all the ills and woes of traffic and other congestion will occur for residents. There is trade offs...period! Ideals are compromised. So which you prefer?.. everyone got their answer. I would love peace and quiet, whereas million others want convenience and shopping or dining choice. Everyone got their own conclusion, no definitive answer.
    Perhaps why people keep moving homes..either about rental issues, or wanting a peace of mind.
