The Yellow Hydrant

People stop and stare, they don't bother me
For there's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by, I won't care
If I can be here on the street where you live

The wonderful love song by Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner from the Broadway musical (and later the film) "My Fair Lady" sounds creepy in this day and age. Sounds like a stalker anthem. Haha.

The Red Fire Hydrant

Fire hydrants are usually colour-coded so firefighters can tell at a glance the water capacity and pressure available.

Intended as a critical time-saving indicator during a fire, the meaning of the colour codes are not universally standardised though.

The pillar hydrants I see here in Tanjung Malim are mostly red, with a few in yellow.

Behind the hydrant is the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer in Rest House Road. The Catholic church started as a small chapel in 1960 and was rebuilt in 2007.
