Putrajaya

Putrajaya is the federal administrative center of Malaysia located south of the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur. At the background, is the majestic Putra Mosque, located at the Perdana Square.

Over here in the background is Perdana Putra, which houses the office complex of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, something akin to the White House in Washington DC.

We had a leisure walk around the streets of the administrative center...

... during one of the weekends when it was deserted of any hooman activities.

I'm in front of the Treasury Building which houses the Ministry of Finance, an important department according to the hoomans...

... but how could that be? Isn't the Ministry of Treats the most important one!

As we continued with our walk, we ended up at a park which overlooks the futuristic, cable-stayed Seri Wawasan Bridge...

... that has a sail ship appearance from far.

That's an interesting looking structure over there...

... but the smell over here are equally interesting too.

This tall structure is the Millennium Monument, which is analogous to the Washington Monument in Washington DC. At night, the monument serves as a beacon with strong light which also acts as guide to cruise boats.

We walked along the pavement under the morning sun...

... and I saw more buildings and open parks around me.

Over here, at the background is the Seri Saujana Bridge, another cable-stayed arch bridge in the administrative center.

A close shot of the bridge as we made our way home after the walkie.

Oh Hero, you should be the Minister of Treats Department, I'll vote for you.
My pawrents recognize the place, they visited Malaysia in 2005, at that time, you and I were not even born.
Did I tell you we share the same birthdays Hero. September 6th 2006, man that's a very special day, 2 pup stars were born!
Cheers!

Hero! Thanks for taking us around Putrajaya. It sure looks like so much fun when you go there :) LOL. Did I ever tell you how lucky you are?

Lola said...

That's some interesting stuff, Hero. Those bridges are really beautiful to look at. Thank you for the tour. I also think you'd probably make the best Minister of Treats in all Maylasia, if you happened to be open to a job.

Oh, BTW, it was Malaysian restaurant week in New York City just recently. Sadly, we did not get into the city - and dogs aren't allowed in restaurants here anyway - but we did see some mouth watering news stories and we thought of you. And then we thought it was time for a little something.

wags, Lola
