Proton City is the developing industrial, residential and academic township anchored by the national car’s manufacturing plant.
Other than industrial buildings, there’s currently not much else to see; except maybe the new UPSI campus. It is located about 9 km from Tanjung Malim town.
I like this rainy day view of the Proton HQ building against a gorgeous backdrop of streams, greenery and misty mountains.

One of the things I decided from the get-go was to proceed come rain or shine. It would be impossible to find a continuous stretch of sunny days with the vagaries of our weather.
If it shines, the camera will absorb the colours. If it rains, I get to capture the wet landscape and activities. After all, this is documentary photography and I will go with the flow.
For this cinema in Rasa town, the show didn’t go on. Sad to see a building from 1957 left dilapidated and forsaken. Even sadder to see what looks like an equally old tree by its side; beheaded.
Rasa is the first town on the route that hit me as a dying town. Many of the buildings there are from 80 to 100 years ago but are are left abandoned. I have to find out why.
