"I LIVE IN THIS AREA...CALLED BANDAR UTAMA" Top 5 Page for this destination Petaling Jaya by coceng

Petaling Jaya Travel Guide: 340 reviews and 680 photos

Hi guys & girls, I live in this area called BANDAR UTAMA, it is a residential area in the District of Peataling Jaya.
Lots of housing areas in Petaling Jaya !...Coming up like mushrooms after the rain even as I am writing this !
Congested areas with traffics, people...& shopping ! Lots of shopping complexes to cater the needs of the lifestyles of people living in Petaling Jaya areas.

I think I will make this as my 2nd HOMEPAGE on VT !
As if I need one more, well this page will be my photography page; I shall put all the photos around my living habitat that I take with my new digital camera
No, I'm not promoting the brand, neither the camera but focus more on my photos, you will get my point, okay.


In order to perfecting my photography skills from now on...( I never bother about this before...); I started to take photos of flowers ! ( I was never interested in them before !).
Gosh ! There are many flowers around where I live, all kinds. I tested the original colours of them on my digital photos, the results are MEGA excellent !
I should put all these flower pix on the tips here as well; otherwise, they would be wasted in seeing their glorious colours & you can see my photography skills as well ! Self-promoting here, yes of course....

Also, I should say that the main reason I'm getting a digital camera is because I wanted to take as many night photos as possible !
When I travel, you guys rarely see my night photos & I always want people to think that I don't go out at night, in those places !
Well, I lied ! I did go out & experienced the 'nightlife' (one word there...).
So, I should really start with what I could see OUT from my window, AT NIGHT !
It's amazing to see the brightly lit
Twin Tower & KL Tower,
looming in the distance ! I see this sight every night, you know....nice huh ?

Maybe you can learn a bit about life in Petaling Jaya, a bit about Malaysian life...
Petaling Jaya is a big residential areas ! Many shopping complexes, many housing areas, many people, the so-called Satellite City of Malaysia, natch !
Petaling Jaya is simply called PJ !
On my shopping tips, you can see lots of photos from various shopping complexes in PJ area ! I name them here :
One Utama, the old & the new wing.
Tesco, the British Hypermarket chains.
Ikea, the Swedish furniture giant. The biggest IKEA in Asia, you know !
IKANO, just next to IKEA.
Midvalley Megamall.
Sunway Pyramid Mall.

Funny, this digital camera makes me see things that I never noticed before !
This page will always be updated, depends on whether I want to share the photos with you guys...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A Booming ( Business ) District In Malaysia !
  • Cons:An Expensive Area To Live !...But You Can Rent A Room Quite Cheap...
  • In a nutshell:Come Here To Do Your Shoppings !

    1 Utama is really a great place for shopping or going around. Visited this shopping complex one month ago. Funny to see, that IKEA is the same like in Germany. Haha. Thanks for your great site, tips and pictures.
