I walk a lot, I find shortcuts to get from A to B but one place I shall not go to is the alley. This is a typical alley you can find in Kuala Lumpur, not that I want to shame the city, the truth is most of the alleys are dirty. Rubbish are thrown by unscrupulous residents and shopowners and this led to the growth of pest especially rats and cockroaches. Eventually the smell is also unbearable with uncollected refuse and rotten produce or dead animal. Thinking of a shortcut? Well think again.
