    what does USJ stands for?

    was browsing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usj when the entry said USJ is Utara Subang Jaya. always thot that it's Upper Subang Jaya... any comments?

    also the entry on usj is kinda short - u guys wanna E-X-P-A-N-D it? the entry reads:-

    Usj
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    One of the most well planned townships in Malaysia's Klang Valley comprising of Subang Jaya and USJ (Utara Subang Jaya).

    * Taipan
    * Schools - known to be a college centre
    * Famous seafood restaurants along Airport road
    * bordering Sunway, KJ, Shah Alam, Puchong

    Subang was previously most known for its airport, which was replaced in 1999 by the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang. Discussions are still going on whether or not to position Subang Airport as a no-frills budget airport, or to dismantle it entirely and allocate the freed land for industrial purposes.
    [edit]

    External links

    * Usj home page


    guess where the Usj home page links to?

    Orchi is right, USJ stand for UEP SJ. This can verify via the green road sign in all streets.

    if PJS stands for Petaling Jaya Selatan, then Utara Subang Jaya should be SJ Utara or SJU...

    Take it from a resident who's been here in Subang Jaya for more than 20 years, USJ definately stand for UEP Subang Jaya. Countless geography projects from form 1 to 3 students can verify this for you.

    When USJ was still a plantation, USJ stood for United Seafield Jaya. I think later someone UEP Subang Jaya became the acknowledged abbreviation.

    Re: what does USJ stands for?

    This part of Subang Jaya was originally a rubber estate called Seafield Estate. The company which managed the rubber estate is the United Estate Plantation thus UEP in short. Sime Darby you and I know was a plantation based company. They acquired this choice estate land and turned it into a housing estate. The rest is history. The developer of this housing estate which is SIME UEP Development Berhad derived its name from this UEP. Do you know that both Tenaga and Telekom are very fond of refering to this area as Seafield? Look at your address of on your phone bill or the contract that you have signed with TNB and STM. Last night when power failure hit USJ 12 (I think others were affected too) I called 15454 and was told that their men were at Seafield. If I don't know about Seafield, I would be wondering what has Seafield got to do with Subang Jaya.

    the man not usually in USJ is now speaking when he's not in USJ

    about the wikipedia thingy... who's responsible to edit it? i can't seem to edit it... haha
    not sure about the famous seafood part... what is it to do with USJ??

    anyway, yes, been around SJ/USJ for nearly 20 years now... and still counting... nice place to stay minus the moronic drivers (not necessary from SJ/USJ, mostly people not from SJ/USJ, to bypass tolls...)

    haha... and I thought USJ stood for University Sakit Jiwa or Urban Super Jam ( in reference to the massive traffic jams in and out of USJ...)
