After The Signpost.
Arriving from Kerling, the visitor is greeted by ruins immediately after a sign that marks the town of Lembah Beringin.
Rows and rows of brutal abandonment hit you in the face. I am not sure if the houses were were even completed. Many such properties have their metal fittings such as windows, door grills, plumbing and electrical wiring stolen or stripped. A group of scrap metal collectors (besi burok) guys descended like a swarm of locusts eating everything its way.
Have a friend who bought two such houses dirt cheap in a fire sale. He was thinking it was a deal that cannot go wrong. Cash and carry. No loans needed. Little did he expect to be paying migrant workers to stay there. The paid tenants help deter theft, vandalism and further ruination. Tragic, right?
