Do more to preserve city’s green lungs

THE remaining green lungs in Kuala Lumpur are being stolen right under our eyes. Take my neighbourhood as an example. I moved to Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) in 1977. A single-storey house was pricey then at RM34,000 but the location was good. It was near Section 17, Petaling Jaya where I was then living. Being a green activist, I was also attracted by the advertisement that said: “Live beside a green neighbourhood (rubber estate).”

Bukit Kiara in its present condition is our precious gift to future generations. I consider myself fortunate to have this 189ha park adjacent to my house for exercise and recreation. This area is equivalent to 300 football fields!
