Thanks Nazrey for the pics. Without doubt, Cheong-Gye-Cheon River project is a success story of Seoul! Some saying, this project has injected 'Soul' into 'Seoul'. :) But our Klang-Gombak River (River of Life KL) project is a massive transformation for KL CBD to become a world-class city by 2020. Comparing the both projects..the river in Seoul is kind of small stream and the water too shallow for river activities such as river cruising, kayaking, fishing, etc.

The Cheong-Gye-Cheon River project is to expose the hidden river so many years under the highway in CBD's Seoul. Meanwhile, the River of Life project is an attempt to transform and expand the dirty/murky streams into the clean and healthy river and becoming part of the city life. From the AECOM's Masterplan, we can see some roads will be closed for pedestrians and also for the river expansion. So, we can say 'the River of Life KL' will inject 'life' into KLites' life! :)

"There were ideas from other consultants that were worth considering for the eight-year project, which would be carried out based on three main components, which are cleaning; river masterplanning and beautification; and river development. ..


Thanx for the clarification:) but we need to wait so long:eek:hno:

No problem.:) So many projects coming up before the next election and most of them are targeted to be completed by 2020 as show case to the world by that time Malaysia will be a developed nation and KL as a world class city. These included, River of Life, Tamingsari project, electrified double-tracking KTM project, Nusajaya-Bandar Iskandar, and many more.

The same strategies used during Tun Mahathir era, where many developments happened prior to Commonwealth Games 1998 included the famous PTT, MSC, Putrajaya-Cyberjaya, KTM commuter and LRT to show to the commonwealth nations at that time how developed we were since independent from Britain. :cheers: Anyway, eight years won't be long, time flies so fast these days. :)

IF Malaysia bids to be the Olympic Games host in 2020 or Asian Games 2019, some of those projects have to be materialised as similar to the scenario pre Commonwealth Games 1998. Otherwise we will be a laughing stock as happened to India during Commonwealth Games 2010. But the government already decided not to bid for Olympic 2020, neither Asian Games 2019, so we will see! :lol:

same with 2024 asian bid..kl already pull out,maybe in 2028 or 2032 kl will ready for the games(40years after 1998commonwealth games)what a long time.;-(..but its maybe too late for me,i already old..;-(
olympic games maybe too expensive..but asian games...come on,we actually have enough money and chance to win the bid,but i think government dont want to take a risk after lost with qatar last time in 2000 bid(second place).

Use money to build country is just better...no need to get serious to host any games...the world class events always in town like Greater KL such as Malaysia host Grand Prix for many major motorsport events, Premier League tournament always in town etc. Finally as someone said that this project its going to take ages!

I agree with Nazrey, no need to be host for big games until our sportsmen and sportswomen are ready enough to compete at par with other international athletes. But sports also important to encourage our people with healthy life style and also patriotism to the country. Maybe we better start with the Asian Games first, Olympic maybe not in my lifetime. Same as guy4versa I'll be too old by that time, I can be a grandpa already :lol: or deep underneath the ground. At least my grand kid will be proud to be Malaysian. :)

The most important thing right now is to use the money to benefit the 'rakyat' as a whole rather than to show off to the world with some 'white elephant projects' while many Malaysian population in the rural areas still don't have supply of clean water, electricity, proper schools and using dirt roads. I think the government has made the wise decision to pull out to be the host for the big games for the time being. Another thing, better use the money to finish unfinished eyesore projects (projek terbengkalai) such as Plaza Rakyat! :eek:hno: But for sure River of Life KL will benefit to the 'rakyat' mostly KLites and I hope I still be around at that time in year 2020.

i know but racing is different then other sports..org g tgk lumba kereta lain feelingnya berbanding org yg dtg tgk sport,example(malaysia vs singapore) di bukit jalil..smgt nya lain..same with badminton,squash,cycling ect...i love gtp program.tp malaysia perlukan lebih populariti untuk menyokong gtp ni..jd dgn menarik lebih 30juta pelancong+investor+business men(beijing2008)..its also can make malaysia as landing field,and enhance the property value(terutamanya KLIFC and all the mega project)..its about to make malaysia as popular destination for big company..(malaysia is not well known in usa,europe)

i think this gtp programm is like 'syok sendiri' if its not involved [email protected] company

we dont know need to put our-self in trouble for some attention. and i think, Malaysia is kind of well-known already. maybe we need to further promote Malaysia by other means... like stability, development and more outstanding achievement. let strive for it...
besides, IMO, if government continue their bid for olympics and asian games, it will be a point for opposition to dispute whether they are spending money wisely while some of the rakyat live in destitute. just saying....

-built too many building also put our self into trouble..but its still not get any attention,it kind like u only focus on economy effect,its like build more and more building,development ,but the people is not healthy and passive.
-comeon dah lebih dr 40tahun malaysia xbuat,kos akan makin bertambah,bila lagi masa yg sesuai,nak tunggu 100tahun golden jublie sukan komanwel bru nak hosting multisport event..?
-promote malaysia by other meaning,like Suzhou,songdo and some place that never heard before..?their development are outstanding,but still no one knows about that,putrajaya have a same fate...im not asking for olympic games,i know the budget it very expensive,what i trying to say is a full package of development,kesedaran rakyat+kemudahan infrastructure=a better world


seems like this is not a suitable thread to talk about it..so i end up here..-Together we unite to makes better malaysia!-
