BnB disturbing neighbourhood peace

I HAVE lived the past 20 years in a quiet, leafy corner of Old Town Petaling Jaya. The houses here are old bungalows occupied by retired civil servants. Life has been peaceful, and home is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of urban living. Until recently.

My neighbour’s house fell vacant after the old folks passed away. Their children did not continue living there and chose to rent out to a bed-and-breakfast (BnB) operator. Having a huge compound, this meant that it could accommodate more than the casual guest. Hosting of large-scale events with hundreds of people was possible due to the ample space.
