Borderline

(The middle lane and motorcyclists – inseparable! Picture source: www.guardian.co.uk)

Here’s a mind boggling question – why does some stupid motorcyclist bastards have to ride in the middle of 2 lanes and have to ride rather slow?

They like to follow the “dash line” but obvious to the fast traffic on their right and left.… [Click to read the rest] “Borderline”

Free for all?

(Photo source: Malaysiakini)

Imagine this:-

You are driving along the road near Bandar Mahkota Cheras and stopped to see the protests by the residents. The police asks you to drive away which you did but suddenly you are surrounded by 20 FRU personnel claiming that you ran over one of the officers and they start beating you without mercy.… [Click to read the rest] “Free for all?”

East Coast

(Snaking highway! Image source: Google Earth)

It must have been like 15 years since I last stepped in East Coast of Malaysia.

So a relative’s function in Kuantan last week was just the excuse I needed for a 520 kilometres drive to and fro East Coast. For the record, I never driven past Karak Highway – it is either a journey in a bus, driven by a half asleep driver with a baseball bat safely tucked away under the seat or a journey in a car, driven by experienced but a speed demon friends.… [Click to read the rest] “East Coast”

Childhood Memories: Part 4 – Going To Bloody War With Wooden Guns

wooden gun war childhood

When I was young and my parents could not afford to buy us toys, we had to contend with making our own wooden toys. One of the “usual” toys that we often make is the wooden gun. I know paint-brush skills suck! A very rough blueprint of the wooden gun looks like the above.

All “OK” at Emergency Lanes

To any politicians, officials and police officers who have said that any motorist found abusing the emergency lanes will be slapped with summons without any mercy, well go screw yourself because it is not happening. Not when I was looking and capturing the “crime” on camera!

Yesterday I was driving back from Taiping and just when I was near Gopeng, I find myself stuck in a long traffic jam – was it an accident or a road block, I asked myself as I went into a lumbering slow drive.… [Click to read the rest] “All “OK” at Emergency Lanes”

Traffic Jam 2008: Mentally “Living” in Work Office

office

I just realise that I am going to the office earlier and coming back later than the time when I first started with this job. It has come to a point where when I do come to the office late or leave the office early, people come up to me and ask me if I am feeling right.

This is because I get confused after passing the toll booth of whether it is a huge parking lot or traffic jam. Huge traffic jam like this in China – image source: The Independant

Down but not out

(Image source: http://www.engadgetmobile.com)

Not yet, at least for the moment.

The morning starts with me coughing and spitting out yucky phlegm. Yucky because it is just thick and yellowish. And when it is yucky, cough is often followed by vomiting (this is a scary part, even for me!).

So, just imagine hearing a “cough + vomiting” sound, so early in the morning for 10 minutes?… [Click to read the rest] “Down but not out”

Ice Age

(Photo source: http://www.abc.net.au)

The year was 2033

The polar cap has melted a long time ago, flooding the costal areas and completely covering many small costal nations. Many parts of Malaysia costal areas are under the sea. At the same time, the earth began to experience its next cycle of ice age, bringing havoc to many countries in the northern hemisphere.… [Click to read the rest] “Ice Age”
