Actress Maya Karin has expressed concerns over the number of shopping malls being built instead of playgrounds for children, reported Harian Metro.
She vented her frustrations on a Twitter posting on Sunday, saying: “We take away children’s natural playgrounds and build more malls.
“Then we open artificial playgrounds in the malls for them to play and for the parents to pay.
“Bagus (good),” she wrote.
Her post got more than 3,700 likes and was retweeted about 5,300 times since then.
Maya, 37, also said that some shared her views with Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad and his senior private secretary Zulkefli Mohd Nani in Labuan on Monday.
Maya said they also discussed the Bukit Kiara recreational park and the lack of greenery for the community in housing areas in the city.
She said many football fields had been sacrificed to build more condominiums.
