Desa Setapak Earthquake Ruined All Chinese Hawker Stalls

Probably, I should have called this a tremor rather than earthquake, but that tremor was powerful enough too as it ruined all Chinese hawker stalls that have been there for years!

Ohya, you may not understand what I am talking about unless you’d read the news/forums/blogs or staying around Desa Setapak.

On 21st of May 2008, the lovely DBKL went on to dismantle those so-called illegal hawker stalls at Desa Setapak. (Though, these hawker stalls have been there for years, many of them should have been survived for more than 10 years, with some of them relying on the business to grow up their little poor children.) However, the DBKL only dismantle the Chinese hawker stalls, all of them! (Well, again, that’s expected. I believe that most Malaysian know and understood from heart!)

Well, wait for at least another 5 years to live with a better life, and hopefully tomorrow will be good a day!
