Weird stuff I saw in Malaysia this week

Wooden slide with peeling paint exposing splintering wood. If this were glossed over with paint, it would be fine although it might leave a paint smudge on your butt but if you attempt to slide down it now, you'll be in a lot of pain.

I can't tell if this is a land-slide nobody bothered to remove or if they made it this way but the left lane disappears into one lane so watch-out for oncoming traffic as you go up and over.

Everything is on a different level in Malaysia. They seem to have no concept of flat. Even the brand new mall has levels as you walk the ground floor from one end to the other. Is it so hard to flatten it out first???

This reminds me the Terry Gilliam movie, Brazil. This is something you might expect to see in a poor area but this is a wealthy area and there's a huge pipe coming out of the side-walk. I've never seen such a thing in the US.

7 escalators all connected. Now this is cool. You get off one escalator and onto the next one so you go up 7 levels fairly fast.

This car has not moved in the 2 years I've been here. They actually removed all of the shrubs at one point but they are growing back. I think those two trees sprouting can do some serious damage. It would be cool if they grew on either side and lifted it into the air.
