Some of us may wonder what is the most popular word in housing project names all over Malaysia.

Could it be Precinct, Heights, Mont, Vista, Seksyen, Perdana, Saujana, Permai or Damai?

And the winner is…

To find the answer, RED ANGPOW has recently analyzed that area of interest.

Guess what? The word Indah came out on top of the list.

Overall, more 500 housing project names contained that word in the period spanning nine years from 2010 to 2019.

Some examples include Taman Senawang Indah (Negeri Sembilan), Taman Indah Jaya (Teluk Intan, Perak) and Taman Kencana Indah (Padang Nanas, Terengganu).
