A Trip To Putrajaya
On Monday 1st of February, I went to Putrajaya after lunch.
I had lunch at the ‘Black Canyon Coffee’.
I did not drink coffee but I drank ‘Blueberry Delight’.
I saw a lot of flags of the states of Malaysia in Putrajaya.
There are a lot of beautiful buildings over there 🙂
The buildings are new because it is a new city 😆
I also saw nice new bridges over the man made lakes.
We drove to the Putrajaya International Convention Center (PICC).
We went to the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque.
It is very big and beautiful but there is almost nobody there ❓
We prayed Asr at the Putra Mosque.
I found a red ‘autumn leaf’ on a bench near the mosque.
There are lots of beautiful lamp posts too and they must be very expensive.
Then we went to Kuala Lumpur International Airport(KLIA).
We had dinner at McDonald’s.
Then we said good bye to Aunty Selina.
Aunty Selina was going to Tokyo, Japan by Japan Airlines (JAL).
After that she’ll be flying United Airlines to the United States.
Aunty Selina works at the World Bank in Washington D.C.
I wish Aunty Selina can visit Malaysia again and bring me more nice books, jigsaw puzzles and tasty chocolates.
I miss Aunty Selina very much.
Take Me Home, Country Roads
Have you heard the song, ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’?
I really love singing the song.
It was written and sang by John Denver.
The song is about the country roads in West Virgina.
It tells us about the beautiful mountains and the Shenadoah River.
I have been on the country roads in Ohio, New York and the Mid-West but not in West Virginia.
I wish that I can go to West Virginia and see the beautiful places as in the song.
We planned to go to Washington DC and to West Virginia this summer but we could not go there because of Influenza A(H1N1).
I hope I can go to West Virginia next year 😉
Metro Train Crash Killed Nine People In Washington
At least nine people were killed in a rush hour train collision between two Metro trains on Monday north of downtown Washington DC.
During rush lots and lots of people want to ride the trains.
DC means District of Columbia.
It was a very bad train accident 😥
It was a disaster.
It happened just before 5 pm on the above ground track on the Red Line near the border with Takoma Park, Maryland.
One train was not moving when the crash happened.
Mayor Adrian Fenty said it was the deadliest crash in the history of Metro.
Metro is Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
Chief Dennis Rubin From Washington’s Fire and Emergency Medical Science Department told CNN that 56 had minor injuries, 12 had moderate injuries and 2 were badly injured.
The rescuers cut through the trains to rescue people because one train was on top of the other train.
The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate why it happened.
I think if I go to the United Nations meeting, I’ll tell people to becareful when riding in trains and aeroplanes.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — A rush-hour collision Monday between two Metro trains north of downtown Washington, D.C., killed at least six people and injured scores, Mayor Adrian Fenty said.
One train was stationary when the crash happened, according to Metro General Manager John Catoe.
He called it the deadliest crash in the history of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, known as Metro. One of the dead was the female operator of one of the trains, Metro officials said.
“The scene is as horrific as you can imagine,” Fenty said in a news conference. “One car was almost squeezed completely together.”

U.S. Celebrates as President Obama Vows New Era
Barrack Obama becomes the new U.S. president yesterday.
President Obama is the U.S. 44th president.
President Obama is a smart politician.
He won lots of elections.
The U.S. 43rd president was George W. Bush.
When George W. Bush was the U.S. president, there were lots of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine.
U.S. presidents live at the White House in Washington DC.
The U.S. first president was George Washington.
I hope President Obama will go to the United Nations meetings to stop the wars.
I think war is very,very,very,very,very bad and a disaster.
