Some pics I took of Putrajaya and Putra jaya Hospital...

This pic was taken at the Surgical clinic in Hospital Putrajaya. Hospital Putrajaya is a 272 bedded hospital located in the new government administrative area of Putrajaya in Sepang District, Selangor. The hospital provides secondary care services with emphasis on daycare management.Hospital Putrajaya, in keeping with its location within the Multimedia Super Corridor is to be managed and run based on the Total Hospital Information System (T.H.I.S) concept. It is conceptualized to be the leading hospital of its class and to be the model hospital for the future generation of hospitals of this type.

My mother had her thyroid operation done there as other hospitals did not dare to do it as her thyroid was pretty complicated. Her surgeons, Miss Anita and Miss Normayah were wonderful and the end result was so neat all my mother could do was praise them continously.

Putrajaya, a planned city located just south of Kuala Lumpur, is the new federal administrative capital of Malaysia. Several Government offices have relocated there to gain relief from the overcrowding and congestion of Kuala Lumpur, which is Malaysia's largest city. However, Kuala Lumpur still serves as Malaysia's national and legislative capital for now. Putrajaya is a Federal Territory just like the city of Kuala Lumpur and the island of Labuan.
The city is named after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra. In Bahasa Melayu, the Sanskrit-derived words "Putra" means son while "Jaya" means excel or success.
The city has only been established recently and it is still undergoing massive development: its development was hampered by the 1997 Asian financial crisis.
The city is built on a scale completely disproportionate to its current population, with a number of bridges spanning an artificial lake, Putrajaya Lake.
Although Malaysia is multi-ethnic with Malay, Chinese, Indian, Eurasian groups, the architecture in Putrajaya is predominantly (some would say excessively) modern Arabic in style. There have been calls for more traditional or even modern Malay, Chinese, Indian and Western architectural elements in some sectors of the city to make it less like a modern Persian Gulf capital
