On the fifth day, Mr. Ridwan and the family members took me on a walking trip around Marsfield, their residential area. Unlike our congested Malaysian terrace houses, they have very large area outside and as a must, there is a big park to facilitate recreational and outdoor activities.

Our local housing developers should emulate this kind of thing. It is quite sad to see how they are trying to maximize the profits just by simply putting too many houses in one small plot of land, with no or very little space for parks and even fields. May be it is already too late but at least, this should be something to consider for the upcoming housing projects.
