KL's Population is At Least 10 Million

The Kuala Lumpur population has been on an upward trend. Census statistics would indicate that Malaysia’s capital city has two million people. But on Thursday, Berita Harian published Ahmad Phesal Talib’s disclosure that it should rightly be ten million. The city’s mayor wasn’t just referring to the human inhabitants – another eight million denizens who actually form the majority are rats!

And that is scary because it means that for every person living in KL, there are four rodents scampering around our streets and abodes.

Who says Malaysians cannot live in harmony with others who are different from us? Moreover, these scavengers easily breed, multiply and proliferate. And I have not even begun to count the stray dogs and cats. And others too.

This morning, I was in KL’s Jalan Ampang to attend the MIMKL Toastmasters meeting. I was a speech evaluator for one of the four speakers. Also Vice President Education Giles Ojo was kind enough to have spared a speaking slot for fellow Sunway University Toastmaster, Nawal Lyana and she delivered CC speech #8. It was a good speech but she needs to learn to be clever and even creative when using visual aids. A good meeting and I would score it a 7 over 10.
