It does have a theater! There is also an Experimental theater. They are part of The Putrajaya Corp Complex.
. The guys from Actors studio have done shows there. There will be more stuffs coming as Putrajaya is to become the Art center of Malaysia.

I know Vancouver was the most livable city in the world few years back (or still maintain the lead till now???)
I'm not talking a lot of entertainment in a town. I'm talking about the basic requirement for most normal folks, a theater.

I believe Vancouver must have many of them.

In KK we don't look just by the development itself. But when you talk about relaxation and holiday then i think KK is a very nice place to stay. KK have alot of natural tourists spot that are rich. eg, Pulau-KK have the most small developed holiday pulau in Malaysia. Mt. kinabalu-incase no one know it is the highest mountain in Southeast asia. National Park- those for people want to escape from the heat. Poring Hotspring- KK have natural hotspring i dunno other states. Seafood- yummy, KK seafood is cheap and delicious. Shopping- well, wait another 3 yrs KK will be a shopping heaven (not less than 5 shopping centre is developing now). Orang Utan-have u ever touch one b4, in sabah u can even kiss them.

I think this ranking thingy is a bit skewed Basically everyone would vote for their own hometown

For me for instance....it would be KL no matter what. So you see......it is all very bias

Obviously, there are dozens of billionnaires there in Mainland China but none wish to declare to the PRC gov't I think. Just look at the Forbes' richest ranking. None of them are appeared in the list which I think is impossible.

With the RM strenghtened against the US$..I believe our GDP per capita has increased by by almost $1000.

And if Malaysia's economy keeps enjoying GDP growth of at least 5%/year for 10-12 years, Malaysia's GDP per capita could reach South Korea's current GDP per capita.

Yeah, Zhejiang and Guangdong have overtaken Malaysia. I think Zhejiang is ahead of Guangdong. Guangdong's aim is to overtake Taiwan within 5 years. So you can imagine their level of development.

This is taken from China forum:  

去年我省城镇居民赚得多花得也多。昨日记者从国家统计局浙江调查总队了解到,我省城镇居民去年人均可支配收入达16294元,增长12%,连续第五年居全国31个省市区第3位,在除直辖市以外的省区中居第一位;人均消费性支出为12254元,增长15.2%,在全国31个省市区中的位次超过了广东省,由2004年的第4位上升到第3位。

  居民收入最高的是上海市,人均可支配收入为18645元;第2位是北京市,人均收入为17653元;第4位是广东省,人均收入为14770元;第5位是天津市,人均收入为12639元;第6位是福建省,人均收入为12321元;第7位是江苏省,人均收入为12319元;第8位是山东省,人均收入为10745元;另外,与我省同处华东区的江西省,人均收入8620元,排在第21位;安徽省,人均收入8471元,排在第22位。

  消费支出高于我省的是:上海市,人均消费支出13773元,增长9%;北京市,人均13244元,增长8.6%。另外,广东省居第4位,人均消费支出11810元,增长10.4%;消费支出排在前8位的还有天津(9653&#20803、福建(8794&#20803、重庆(8623&#20803、江苏(8622&#20803。

Briefly translated, it says the GDP per capita ranking in China -

1.Shanghai - 18,645 (income) 13,733 (ppp)
2.Beijing - 17,653 (income) 13,244 (ppp)
3.Zhejiang - 16,294 (income) 12,254 (ppp)
4.Guangdong - 14,770 (income) 11,810 (ppp)
5.Tianjin - 12,639 (income) 9,653 (ppp)
6.Fujian - 12,321 (income) 8,794 (ppp)
7.Jiangsu - 12,319 (income) Chongqing - 8,623 (ppp)
8.Shandong - 10,745 (income) Jiangsu - 8,622 (ppp)

I think if we do not count Malaysia as a whole, Klang Valley alone should have GDP per capita of more than 20k already?

Just how strong is China? Imagine this in terms of population.
Hong Kong + Macau = abt. half of Malaysia
Shanghai + Beijing = slightly more than 1 Malaysia
Fujian = about 1 and a half Malaysia
Zhejiang = abt. 2 Malaysia
Jiangsu = 2 and a half Malaysia
Guangdong = abt. 3 and a half Malaysia
Shangdong = 10 Malaysia

remember it is taking ppp into consideration (purchasing power parity)

so inflation is already taken into consideration. however, if it was the obsolute level of GDP, i believe malaysia and china will be way down actually.....

I think that by comparing a province in China (despite the physical and population size of the place) to Malaysia which is a country could be very distorted. It would be just like how those 'know-it-alls' take Selangor's 'growth' and benchmarking it against Scandivanian and western European countries. Did ya guys know that Selangor's Negeri Maju also take into account of the economics that are generated by Port Klang and KLIA?
