Bandar Puncak Alam (Shah Alam 2)

My great father bought a house here in Bandar Puncak Alam for me because he knew the house prices would increase and we would not be able to afford it. It was bought for only RM150,000 in 2005 and wanted us to be thankful so we went to clean it almost every fortnight.

I remember cleaning the lawn and fixing the lamps and water system. It was the first time I knew about property but I was only in university back then.

Now after about 8 years, the development is still slow in Puncak Alam. I am always a fan of the underdogs and of course with the bandar having a soft spot in my heart, I will always root for Bandar Puncak Alam. The population mix is not something we can be proud of but slowly but surely, it would be a good city.

I was told Tesco is coming to Puncak Bestari and with the links through new highways, Puncak Alam's "ulu" status would soon be history.

But for one thing I mentioned to my dad when we were on the way to the house. The distance is always a problem. In 10 years time this would be a thing of the past as more developments are set in neighbouring towns.
