The first ride on 2019 was from where Brian lives to Putrajaya and back.
Putrajaya is the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya. Kuala Lumpur had by then become overcrowded and congested because of rapid urban development. Things haven’t improved since.
Architects and city planners started with a completely blank canvas devoid of any other structures. A series of lakes were created and some amazing buildings went up.
This is the home of the Putrajaya Corporation, the local authority which administers the Federal Territory of Putrajaya.
This is the Ministry of Finance.
This is the Palace of Justice.
This is the International Convention Centre.
And this is the Malaysia Energy Commission.
It was an overcast day. Excellent for cycling, but not so good for a cloud photograph.
