Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Nilai (State of Negeri Sembilan)


Nilai
you can stretch your money
by the metres

Nilai in Malay means worth. It is 15 km from Seremban the capital town of Negeri Sembilan and also very near to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Nilai is a newly developed township and is filled with many colleges, government training institutes as well as golf courses. The roads are treelined and smart looking. Houses, however, are considerably cheaper compared to other areas such as Kuala Lumpur, Subang Jaya or Petaling Jaya. The shops here sell their things more cheaply than other parts of Kuala Lumpur. For instance you can get a metre of cloths for a ringgit or even less.

But if it had to perish twice,
