TODAY is World Rivers Day. Most of us probably aren’t even aware of this. A celebration of the world’s waterways, it highlights the many values of rivers, strives to increase public awareness and encourage good stewardship of rivers.

Then again, how many actually remember the last time you spent a pleasant time near or in a river, especially if you live in Kuala Lumpur? My last trip to a river was not too long ago, and it wasn’t a pleasant one.
