Change Of Driving Direction On Just 1 Road In Petaling Jaya - Left To Right, Then Back To Left Within A Month!

Just when I'm about getting used to this 1 road in Petaling Jaya being changed to right side driving last month, walking across this road this morning, it has just been changed back to left side driving!!!

Not that I would complain about it being reverted back to normal, but is this really a matter can be taken so lightly that some "authority" can just decide to change twice in such a short period of time? What exactly is the standard of healthy & safety of this country?
Or should I just be thankful that no one got killed because of that? Mind you, that's only my hopeful assumption.

Left Driving? Right Driving? Overnight Change Of Driving Rule On Just 1 Road In Petaling Jaya

The last time I checked, Malaysia is a left-hand driving country - at least that's how I remembered it. However, walking to work one morning, a familiar road has been changed to right-hand driving. I was just about to tell the driver off for driving on the wrong side of the road, only to realise that I was the one who was in the WRONG.

I have absolutely no idea why this particular road had a change in driving rule overnight, all I know is that this is a really dangerous thing to do, and that it probably can only happen in this country.

Another fame to the Boleh Land! I can only pray that no one gets hurt because of this.

Bangsar South -  one of the upcoming and most rapidly developed township on the hill, complete with a new shopping mall, hotels, offices, condominiums and even a few medical centres and clinics within the neighbourhood. Sounds great. Is it really?
Once upon a time, this area was called Kampung Kerinchi (Kerinchi Village), which had a good mix of different residential buildings, local shops and food stalls, and a big farmers' market that opened twice a week. Most importantly, residents used to be surrounded by lots of greenery but not short of necessary modern conveniences.
BUT, ever since the renaming of the area from the not-very-cool-sounding one to Bangsar South several years ago, there hasn't been a pause in development. This of course, involved the sacrifice of many many trees and bushes and destroying the landscape with the leveling of the hilly lands.
 We can foresee what the residents downhill would be experiencing on stormy days: mud flooding down from the over expo…
