What is left of Jaya Supermarket.

"Jaya Supermarket" as it is today!

I am surprised to read of the demolition of the Jaya Supermarket in PJ. And to add to the sadness the collapse has claimed 2 lives. I hope that the five trapped are safely rescued in due time.

I remember way back in the 70's it was a landmark in PJ especially around Section 14 and the Paramount Garden area. I was a young man then, just married and lived just a walking distance from Jaya Supermarket. It was the only place that provided some comfort and companionship for a homesick young man from Penang.

Things change, people come and go, nothing lasts for long; for better or for worse.

Farewell, Jaya shopping centre.
