Walking along the sidewalk near a resort golf course that borders a water village (sort-of a shanty town on stilts) in Kota Kinabalu, we noticed wires hanging out of a lamp post and running down into the open concrete sewer. Either the city is being industrious about supplying power to all it's lamp posts with accessible wiring running through the ditches, or the water villagers are siphoning off power from the city street lamps. Either way, it says a lot about Malaysian culture and government.
