Long Live KL Car Free Morning

Is KL Car Free Morning Under Threat? 

 I have been meaning to post an update on DBKL’s twice-monthly KLCFM event for a while now, but other writing assignments always seem to get in the way of it. Well, after reading in the news today about Tan Sri Ahmad Phesal Talib’s tenure, as DBKL Mayor, ending end of July, I felt compelled to write this article quick-smart because I am afraid that the new Mayor, upon taking office, may decide to scrap KLFCM project in favour of stamping his newly-crowned authority in KL by implementing his own-initiated high-rolling projects. Am I being overly paranoid or is there some truth in my fears?!  

   In too many previous cases, great social projects have been abandoned & replaced by ineffective ones to be initiated by the New Man in-charge for personal reasons, no matter how successful the existing project has become. I am afraid that the same tragic fate will befall upon our beloved KLCFM sessions if the New Gang in the office have their way completely. I hope that they prove me wrong & against the odds, not only give credit to the outgoing Mayor for his stupendous vision to initiate KLFM so successfully, but also, I hope the New Guys will have the courage to carry onward & upward the baton which will passed to them by the likeable Ahmad Phesal. The latter is popular because  he is approachable & he is a gentleman who leads by example. You can often see him on his modest bicycle at the starting line of KLCFM. Judging by the absence of fuss & formality surrounding him during KLCFM, I suspect that Ahmad Phesal really wants to do good by our beautiful capital city for the rakyat unlike so many other selfish high office-bearers who strut around like the people owe them a living & sometimes, their ridiculous words & actions give the public the impression that Kuala Lumpur is for sale to the right bidder.

 Since its inception in January 2014, KLCFM has grown in strength, and this gold star event has brought so much joy & happiness to the people of Klang Valley, as well as to visiting tourists. In fact, Ahmad Phesal has been bold enough to double KLCFM’s frequency to the 1st & 3rd Sunday of every month, and judging by the enthusiastic crowd, the Mayor’s move is paying dividends in the form of increasing public support for a greener KL & better understanding from the affected motorists & shopkeepers.

Everybody is Welcomed!

 Personally, I really enjoy KLCFM because I can choose to cycle or run in the heart of KL hassle-free & smog-free with my friends. Indeed, KLCFM is not only an important GREEN & HEALTHY activity, but it also helps promote social unity by creating a favourable platform for families, friends, neighbours, tourists, strollers, skateboarders, runners, rollerbladers & cyclists  to BOND WITH EACH OTHER.

Join me at KLCFM on 19th July 2015 for a fun morning of whatever activity you may fancy.
