Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Neighbourhood Review


Cheras is an extremely large and sprawling township dominated mostly by the Chinese race. This township is so large that it runs adjacent to Ampang on one end, while the other end meets with Kajang.

This township was once just a small and sleepy tin mining town that was home to a mere 500 residents. However, due to overpopulation in Kuala Lumpur over the years, Cheras was gradually developed into the metropolis it is today.

Cheras is well known to offer affordable housing closer to the Kajang area, where those of the middle income group can easily afford a considerably large terrace house. The residential units however increase tremendously in price closer to the Ampang area.

A usual irate comment by motorists is that Cheras is the cause of all traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur, due to the high density of residents living in the town and the lack of roads connecting the township to the city. Residents of Cheras commonly have to live their houses before the sun rises to get the work, while most of them reach home only after the sun sets.

It is considered the norm for roads such as the Salak South Highway to be filled with cars bumper-to-bumper during morning rush hours and for Federal Highway to be the same during after work rush hours, as all Cheras dwellers who need to go to and fro their homes and the city utilize these highways. Nevertheless, property development in Cheras never ceases, and the only good thing that can be said about it is that it offers affordable housing at the very least.

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.363% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 1.633% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 3.308% in the year 2014 while surging by 3.019% in 2015.
