Manila was named in 2012 the world’s third-worst city for driving, as published in various online news portals, the source of which was CNNGo (CNN’s travel website). MSN Autos also named Manila the 10th-worst city to drive in in the world, just faring better than Mumbai, Beijing, Orlando, Toronto, Seoul and the like.

Last week I found myself in Kuala Lumpur and the rest of Selangor Province in Malaysia for the Malaysian MotoGP. It was unfortunate that Marco Simoncelli of Ducatti tragically passed away doing what he loved most: going flat out on two wheels. May his soul rest in peace as he joined our Creator and is probably now going flat-out somewhere in the great race track with the best bikes and even better company. Kuala Lumpur took the best approach to keep their city vibrant, progressive, clean and orderly: by building new cities outside of the old city center to help decongest and decentralize government and society.
