Financial consultant Francis Arulanandam, 60, said when he was looking down at the mess of the first landslide in Jalan Wangsa 3, the road in front of him caved in as well.

“I am one of the first residents of Bukit Antarabangsa in 1989. Since the landslide I get nervous whenever it rains heavily,” he said.

Tita said it was common for large trees to fall along Jalan Wangsa 1 during heavy rain.

Really feel sorry to hear this, home is no longer a safe home where there is fear living there...

Another similar article here today:


KUALA LUMPUR: At least five landslips took place at Kampung Bukit Sungai Puteh here on Saturday evening but residents have opted not to move out despite being advised to do so.

“They (officers from the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council) told us our houses are built on the same hill where the orphanage collapsed and our lives are in danger, but where can we move to?” asked Faridah Burok, 51, yesterday.

Not everyone can afford to "just move" like that...
