Closed for So Long Already!
Paya Indah Wetlands
Unexpectedly, got a call from some foreign bird watching buddies that they are on the way (somewhere on the expressway near Ayer Keroh) and heading for the Paya Indah Wetlands which is very popular for wetland birds.
These old birders were in Singapore and was driven by a friend from Singapore. I was shocked that they are already on the way without letting me know earlier.
You see, the Paya Indah Wetland in Dengkil have been closed for some time because of Bankruptcy! ..ie.....bankrupt of ideas, attraction, neglect, poor management, funds and mis-management! The birds are still there! Perhilitan took over but still not open yet? So When?
This tourist attraction have been placed under renovation for too long. Also nearby, the so called Highest Tech 'Hollywood' like Movie Studio is also abandoned. Under renovation they say, but the building is rotting away! I remember that even Jackie Chan came to open this studio!
Millions of Ringgit have been 'made' and now LOST!
Back to the birds.
I rushed from Klang to Dengkil to wait for these crazy birders who refuse to take NO for an answer. Yes it is still under renovation and according to the guard who was so sympathatic, said
that there are no less than 100 cars coming here but turning back every weekend!
Want to guess what these old birders have to say? Sounds like..tiu..na..mah.(in foreign language)
Why is this so?...Just look at the Tourism catalogs and info .........!
Truly Asia, Azlinah...truly.
