Flat Keramat

I’ve been to many places in the world but to be honest, I’ve not explored my own backyard. I spent most of my childhood in Keramat, a predominantly Malay area.

Today after visiting my mum, I decided to make a stop and visit Flat Keramat. It’s a gem. I should spend more time here to do street shoots. I believe there are so many backstories that I can cover.

The flats are bunch of low-cost development by PKNS (Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor) or state-owned development company. I believe the flats were built during the late 70s, not very far from when I moved to Keramat.

The following photo shows the flats. As you can see, the flats are not far from the city. In fact, it is probably about 15 mins to town! There are a total of 18 blocks altogether.

Low Cost Housing that’s not far from the city

There are so many photo opportunities here, especially in black and white. Today’s trip was just a recce trip for a bigger trip that I plan. Since I come over to Keramat almost every single week, it is very convenient for me to visit this place. In fact, I can park at my parent’s house and walk over here. Not far.

That’s tiny little towers are Petronas Tower.

As usual – hang out with the locals. These are 17 year old kids who told me some of the stories in neighborhood. I will certainly pop by again next week – whenever I have time. In fact they did tell me about the silat and Muay Thai classes that’s held on Tuesday.

Here is a brief video of the flats.
