Lately, once or twice a month either on a Saturday or Sunday, Zaini and I would head to Presint 3 in Putrajaya in the morning.
By the lake, with the Seri Saujana Bridge in the background. If you like bridges, Putrajaya is definitely the place to visit. The place sure have loads of bridges. And I ran on the Seri Gemilang Bridge on Saturday during the Putrajaya Night Marathon! :)
Suspension bridge that leads to nowhere. Makes good photo though.
The Seri Wawasan Bridge and the Monumen Alaf Baru (Millennium Monument) in the background. Although one can't help to be drawn by the phallic shape of the tower, the monument is actually designed based on Malaysia's national flower, Hibiscus. The base of the monuments are actually petals.
There was a boat race of some sort going on when we were there, it's the "varsity boat race" if I'm not mistaken. Fun to watch the rowers while I was pounding the pavement.
Apart from the lovely view, the nice breeze and shady pavements along the lake, what I like about running here is the fact that there's free public toilets abound. And they are pretty well maintained too.
Let's hope the nice environment will continue to be nice.
I can't help but to be disappointed by some irresponsible visitors to the lakeside. There were fast food wrappers and boxes strewn around and crows were making a field day jabbing at them for food. Is it so hard to go and throw rubbish in the rubbish bin? Do these people really want the cleaners to have some work to do so that's why they can't be civic minded and keep the place clean? Why does one need to litter?
