Today we visited the city of Putrajaya [Putrajaya-travel-guide-1311214], conceived as the administrative centre for the government. It is packed with many buildings housing various government departments, mostly in very stylish Islamic and modern style.

The city is reachable by rail from both KL Sentral and the airport where were putting up.

Having worked in New Zealand, it appears to be in quite a contrast to the New Zealand government where about 20 years ago, everything was being down-sized and many departments sold their buildings to take up residence in smaller leased buildings. Yes, I can see where my brothers' taxes have gone.

It is very impressive. I'd like to see Putrjaya suceed as a both a government centre and a normal city ... it will offer a great lifestyle for many because of its planned and green ambience.
