Skies from Putrajaya

Putrajaya ,  the administrative capital of Kuala Lumpur  25 Km south of Kuala Lumpur is  made out of a former Palm Oil plantation. A complete city with its own man made lake, schools, hotels, commercial space and of course residential areas, is meant only for the civil servants who run Malaysia. It is easily accessible by road and the KLIA Ekspress which you can catch from KL Sentral in the City .

The overcast skies did not detract from the grandeur of the city which is a fine example of modern architecture with Islamic accents. It is also a completely green city making its many parks and open spaces, where you can cycle or walk, is perfect for day trips with the peace and serenity around.

When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
