Freecycle in Malaysia

Good news Freecycle is active in Malaysia!

Freecycle is a great website and portal that helps people get rid of unwanted items to other people in need and it is completely free. The only thing you need to pay for is your own fuel to go and collect the items being given away.

So if you have items you want to give away post them on Freecycle. If you are looking for something, check out Freecycle- you might be lucky and find what you need. If you are moving house or leaving the country and can't sell all of your things: put them on Freecycle.

Please help spread the word as this is such a great initiative full of good will. It also helps us all recycle our unwanted things and reduces unnecessary wastage, landfills etc..

Free Bus Service in Kuala Lumpur!

There is now a wonderful free bus service in Kuala Lumpur called GO-KL! It has 2 great routes: 1 is from Pasar Seni/ China Town to Pavillion and Bukit Bintang and the 2nd is from KLCC to Bukit Bintang. This great system was launched at the end of August, 2012 as a result of public demand. This service is also hoping to improve on the current public transport service and encourage others to park their cars and go public. GO-KL buses run from 06.00 to 23.00, Monday to Sunday.

For GO-KL route Maps have a look via this link or see below:
