The Mentally-Blind Motorist Syndrome

In Ipoh, Public Grief on July 24, 2006 at 1:50 pm

Recently, the Ipoh City Council went about the whole of Ipoh Garden and its surrounding areas, repainting road markers, lines, and parking lots. That’s utterly commendable – syabas! Job long overdue, but still most welcome.

Hi CN .. sowieeeee .. It has been very crazy weeks/months for me .. work, family, love life .. sigh .. sometimes i think i fall into the category of abnormal people .. 😦

Anyway .. I just got back from Cameron Highlands .. and yess it is still cool .. literally 😀 Just not as cool as last time .. global warming?? Ask Bush about that! Anyway, on my way back, I stopped for lunch at a food court at Brinchang, it’s the one in front of Hotel Jasmine, right adjacent to Brinchang Central Market .. and i noticed there weren’t any hand-washing basins/sinks .. I wonder how the premise was approved as one of the requirements for setting up food premises is to have adequate hand washing facilities. I have to go into the kitchen to wash my hands and .. hmm ..

I think Majlis Daerah CH should visit this place and do something about it. I mean .. it is clean alright .. but no hand washing sink??? It’s unacceptable, man ..

Poslaju for international deliveries

In Couriers, Ipoh, Public Grief on June 29, 2006 at 6:38 pm

I had to send 4 pieces of A4-sized documents urgently to the US. The first people I think of to do this for me is Poslaju Malaysia, secondly – if you must know – is FedEx. More on FedEx later …Edit July 11, 2006: Read about my FedEx experience!

So ok, I filled in the international airwaybill; waited patiently for my number to be called and attended to. DING! I’m up … Read the rest of this entry »
