Some history...


The township, which was built on tin mining and rubber, is seeing prosperous times due to demand on its real estate

ALTHOUGH the shine  from the tin mining industry from which Sungai Way grew has faded, the glitter in the area is not all lost. What appears to be a sleepy hollow today is enjoying high property value.
"The property price here has gradually increased. Today property owners here can fetch a rent of between RM5,000 to RM6,000 monthly," said Yapp Poh Kiong, a second-generation restaurant owner.

A property valuation carried out by the Petaling Jaya City Council in 1991 showed that the property value here had shot up to 300 per cent. The demand for property could be due to the large presence of industries.

Both mining and rubber planting brought prosperity to the village.

In 1882, Sungai Way was one of the stops included in the construction of Kuala Lumpur-Klang railway line.

Today Sungai Way is  known as  Seri Setia and comprises  Sungai Way New Village, SS9 and Sungai Way Free Trade Zone (FTZ).

The Seri Setia market is its biggest   landmark. The three-storey building was built at a cost of RM1.2million.

Just down the main road of the business area at SS9A/1 are the upgraded SJK (C) Sg Way and the police station.

"I remember my school, SJK (C) Sg Way, as a single-storey wooden building. Look at it now," he said.

Yapp added that many of the elder generations here attended the school and were instrumental in raising funds for the school's development.

Najib at Sungai Way School


"I share your dreams and aspirations (to build the country). What I want to achieve is a tall order, and I am asking you to join me in this quest."
"The journey may be long, but let us take the journey together. This is not the time to experiment and take chances with your future. I am sure you know what I am referring to... business people are always pragmatic and astute," he said.
Najib said this in his speech at a Chinese New Year open house and briefing on the Malaysian Innovation Agency held at SJK (C) Sungai Way in Petaling Jaya,  Feb 2011. The event was organised by SMI Malaysia.
The prime minister earlier said the government recognised that BN had suffered its biggest defeat in the March 8, 2008 general election, but that the coalition has grown, adapted and changed.
