Robber Caught!

That was the headline of the flyer inside my mailbox.

For once, the civilians triumph! The security guards at my area caught a would-be robber!

What happened was that the security guards saw a suspicious car and approached it. Immediately thereafter, two men ran out from the car and the guards gave chase. One of them was caught. He was then photographed and his picture was splashed in the flyer.

The flyer mentioned that he was handed to the police. He was equipped wit a bag-full of break-in tools. Apparently, he admitted his intentions to the police. The man is a Chinese and he is a Singaporean…wtf?

Looks like the security in Singapore is so good that Singaporean robbers have to come to Malaysia to rob.

The only unfortunately bit of this flyer is that a neighbour lamented the lack of participation in the security fund by other neighbours. It’s sad to know that some of my neighbours are enjoying what we all fork in with paying a single cent. I wonder if there is a way to get many of them to join. Perhaps we should consider hiring an Ah Long to collect payment from them.

The security in Malaysia is getting terrible. Every day we hear news of friends or friends of friends being robbed. Hiring security guards doesn’t help to improve the country’s security. Robbers can just head to those places without security guards.

I guess the best way is to improve the economy of the country. If everyone is well off, there is no need to rob right? There is of course the hardened criminals but reducing the numbers would be a great start.

Anyway… Civilians 1 – Robber 0!

Election 2008 – Part III

It was Monday morning and I had my newspaper spread over the table with my daily dose of coffee by my side. I was having breakfast at Kedai Kopi Beng Huat, one of my favourite spots for breakfast.
A lady in her 30s approached me asking whether I could share my table with her. Together with her was another man. Without hesitation, I agreed as there is enough space for them. However, an elderly couple joined them leaving me with no choice but to keep my newspaper. I was surrounded by a group of strangers.
I soon realised that the elderly couple was Japanese tourists. It’s been a while since I conversed in Japanese – its all down the drain now. I kept quiet and ate my food.
Carol Chew Chee Lin, the young 27 years old candidate for the Barisan Nasional and her entourage suddenly entered the coffee shop and started shaking everybody’s hands. I was quite surprised as I didn’t expect any politicians to step into this coffee shop of mine.

After she made her rounds, she dropped by my table and offered to shake the Japanese elderly couple’s hands.
Both of them ignored her.
But when someone explained to her that Carol was actually a politician vying for a spot in the parliament, the elderly couple quickly Carol’s hands.
Incumbent Teresa Kok of the Democratic Action Party (DAP) will be running against new comer and n00b Chew Chee Lin of Barisan Nasional for the Seputeh parliament seat. Teresa Kok is also running for the Kinrara state seat. This has caused uproar with the Barisan Nasional – labelling her as greedy.

Teresa Kok

Transliteration: Kong Tou Chou Mmm Tou, Foh Chin Cheh Tai Pao.
Translation: DAP is all words, no action.
Recently, I noticed that there are numerous billboards depicting a feminine caricature of a rocket. One of the posters impliedly showed that the said rocket was dumping her old flame for a new one. It is understood that the said rocket is no other than Teresa Kok dumping Seputeh for Kinrara.

These billboards were allegedly approved by Carol Chew Chee Lin. Teresa Kok, being the fiery MP, protested and labelled these billboards sexist.

Jungle of United Garden

Sometimes I wonder who visits my website other than the regulars who post messages here. helllooooooooooooooo…anyone care to intro? 😀

Anyway, here are 2 pictures of a place. Take a good look at it. Where do you think this place is?

Ok, it’s actually my neighbour’s backyard. Those mother fuckers havent been cleaning their backyard ever since they moved in.

Dad asked me to take photos of the garden so that he could complain it to DBKL (Kuala Lumpur local council). Last week, my tenant was down with suspected dengue and was admitted to hospital (trees tend to breed loads of mosquitoes). He’s alright now but he’s the 2nd person who was down with dengue within this past 12 months. Couple of months ago, my China student almost died of dengue fever.
