Perdana Putra

  // January 15, 2006 f/16, 1/125s, ISO 800 (more •)

Best Indi PhotoblogThe above is the Perdana Putra -- the Malaysian Prime Minister's Office. This however, is not in Kuala Lumpur as you would think. And to most people's surprise, Kula Lumpur, although the national capital, is not the administrative centre of Malaysia. It is Putrajaya -- a new planned city created just for all matters official. It houses the Prime Minister's office and residence, the King's residence, the ministry offices amidst some really beautiful environs.

Putrajaya also falls in the Multimeia Super Corridor -- a zone created by the Malaysian government to promote information technology in Malaysia. You could compare this to the Special Economic Zones in India, only this is much much bigger than any of the SEZs in India. It extends from Kuala Lumpur right upto Cyberjaya, another planned city, covering almost 50 kms in length.

On a different note, I am happy to annouce that ShutterBug.nu has won the Inibloggies Best Photoblog award. Thanks a million to all those who supported me. I wouldn't say the event was without its own little controversy but all well that ends well. Congratulations to the organisers and the jury.
