payin pdrm summons

if you have not known, there are two types of summons. one is issued by the dewan bandaraya. another one by the polis diraja malaysia (pdrm). so, i had a few pdrm summons that i need to settle. and i have to go to bukit aman in order to get discount because i have summons from hilir perak.

so there i was at bukit aman after two wrong stops earlier. the first stop, i was at the back of bukit aman. so i need to go around bank rakyat to the lake gardens. being there for the first time, i saw another building that looks like a police station. silly me.

anyway, here are just some guidelines to help you all with paying summons.

there is a small building at the entrance where you can check your summons. you'll need to get a number and wait for your turn. when it's your turn, give the officer your car number, and she'll print a report for you and she'll staple your waiting number to the report. don't take it away.

if you want discount, you'll need to see the pegawai kompaun. his office is in bangunan empat tingkat. get your past from the guard house, and walk into the police station. follow the road and you'll come to a four storeys building. if you can't find the way, just follow the direction everyone is heading.

you won't get lost in the building. the pegawai kompaun office is on the ground floor. after a few turn, you'll see people queuing up. just queue up and wait. i waited for slightly less than an hour.

when it's your turn, just go into the pegawai office, greet him if you want to, pass him your summons report and he'll know what to do. he does it most of the days i assume. haha... because the queue just keep on growing.

after that, you'll need to go back to the small building at the entrance, get your number again and make the payment.

oh yah, they accept credit cards! so no worries if your a lot of summons. the dispatch guy queuing up in front of me, has summons total to more than rm3000k.

genting highlands on raya

genting highlands used to be a very appealing location to me. you'll often hear people saying with pride that they went up there at night just to have a cup of drink at coffee bean. i've not been there to just have a cup of drink, yet.

but i've been there twice in a day. and i've also been up there four times in a week. those were the days. the casino was really tempting back then. being a college student, it's always nice to have few hundred ringgits extra every now and then. of course, it hurt too when you lose $$$.
i've been to genting highlands countless time for the past 2 or 3 years, mostly for working purposes. fortunately, the casino is not as appealing to me as it used to be anymore. and i'm really glad of that.
i totally do not have the urge to go into the casino at all. i'd rather hang around at the first world plaza, wondering aimlessly than to get into the casino. unsurprisingly, genting highlands become a little bit boring for me.

however, i was up there with my girlfriend on the first day of raya, i guess, and darn, all the car parks are full. we'll have to park somewhere outside, and walk quite a distance to reach the first world. as usual, we just hang around first world, had burger king and guess what! we went into ripley's believe it or not!

the last time i went into ripley's was probably 5 or 6 years ago. though it is very much the same, it still never fail to amaze me with all the weird things.

like these...

#1: human unicorn
#2: crocodile teeth as false teeth

#3: man who was born with blue (pale) skin
#4: forget about the movie king fu hustle, this is the guy who really bit the bullet.

#5: a replica of a mosque, built with matches and great details. ivan the terrible chop off one arms, take out the eyes and cut off the tongues of all the people who built this replica to prevent it being duplicated. wtf.

#6: and of course the famouse siamese twins, chang and eng.

and lastly, the short sighted fish! this fish was caught by a fisherman, and the spectacle was returned to a sailor who lost it on a sail.

guang liang - yong qi

waking up later than usual

i used to wake up at 7:30am. and then i'll let myself laze on the bed for about 15 minutes before i finally get up and get myself done. it usually takes me about 5 minutes to pee, brush my teeth, wash my face and get changed into my working attire. 5 minutes, sometime less sometime more.

this explain why i don't really like to keep short hair. because with that kind of time frame and so many things need to be done in such a short period of time, i don't have the patient to shape my hair! it's very frustrating when you can't get the right style that you wanted.

longer hair is so easy to be kept and taken care of. usually i'll just apply some wax or cream to make the hair look shiny. then comb a bit with my fingers. that's it.

so lately, i've been waking up much later. 8:30 am. that's about 1 hour more sleep than usual. haha... been getting lazier and lazier. ugh.. not really lazy. just lose the passion to go to back to my office. most of the morning, i'll be weighing whether to take the day off or not. and despite waking up at 8:30am, i've not been late to work yet. cos i can get myself done in 5 minutes, so i normally reach office at around 8:50 am to 8:55 am. not too bad eh... considering that i still see people only clocking in even after 9 am.

sort of lose a little bit of motivation and faith with my work place. kinda...

the week that was

nothing much happened this whole week. life is rather stagnant. and no i'm not glad about it.

mooi started his new job and i couldn't even get him on his mobile ever since. and yesterday night, i got a message from him at about 9 something i guess, saying that he is still in a meeting and will call me back later. well, i was pretty tired yesterday night. so i asked him don't call me back. i crashed at about 9:30pm yesterday.

i couldn't even believe it myself. 9:30 pm. sometimes i can't even shut down myself at mid night. i seems to be more active at night. you know, sometimes, after work you felt really tired. the next thing you want to do is to go home, bath, dinner and hope to sleep early only to find yourself more awake than you just woke up. right, corinne? what's wrong with us lah?

wonder how's mooi doing with his new job. new colleagues. new environment. new tasks. he's not someone you have to worry about because i always go to him for advice, be it personal or work. i'll never have to worry about going the wrong way following his advice.

and talking about advice... funny thing is my colleague actually asked me for advice for his interviews tomorrow. haha... hope i didn't screw him up. cause i myself doesn't have much interview's experiences. mostly i heard from mooi or read from the internet.

best news of the week has got to be manchester united champions league match with roma. man utd has been having problem scoring this season. can't believe it this is the eight games they had won with a solitary goal this season. not that they are trying to play defensive to protect the one goal lead. they just had problem scoring. the best part is, all the one nil matches are scored by different players in each match.

well, don't care as long as we keep on winning. and of course, not to forget the liverpoo match against marseille. one liverpoo fan remarked that marseille is currently sitting on the 17th spot in the french lique. liverpoo will have no problem beating them. lolz... what a joker...

damn astro for causing me to miss the man utd - roma match. knnccb. a 24 hours satellite tv but don't have 24 hour customer support. my home astro was down 20 minutes before the match. the signal was poor and astro technical support close at 12 am. @#$%^&*()

here we go again...

look who's talking again! and it's the most viewed news in the star newspaper now.
New toll rates by eight concessionaires from Jan 1

IPOH: Malaysians can expect a 10% increase in toll rates, with eight concessionaires raising their charges from Jan 1 next year, said Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

However, he said the ministry was working on several proposals to spread part of the cost to the concessionaires and the Government.

“Rather than burden the people, we want to divide the load so the companies carry a bit and the people a bit.

“I will ask the Government how it can help in this situation,” he told reporters after launching a book on the Yayasan Strategik Sosial’s Plus 8 project here yesterday.

Asked how much would the toll hikes actually involve, Samy Vellu said the agreement had stated a 10% increase.

“I have submitted a preliminary proposal and explained to the Cabinet what it would actually cost, what the reaction of people will be, what we can do as a government, what the concessionaires can do as responsible companies and what else can be done,” he said.


he even dare to share "we want to divide the load so the companies carry a bit and the people a bit". i don't see any sense in it at all. why must the people share the burden of the company. we don't make any profits. the company makes hundred of millions of profits every year shaking legs. thanks to the one-sided-blood-sucking concessionaires given to them.

if you have not known, a certain man by the name of
lin yun ling is one of malaysia richest man. #34 to be precise. coincidentally, he happens to be gamuda bhd managing director. forbes estimated him to worth US$160 million. motherfucker. now we know where our hard earned money went to.

just what kind of reason will that semi value guy give this time around for the toll hike? with the general election around the corner, (probably early next year) aren't they not afraid of losing the votes?

oh... perhaps they had learned a lot from their past experience. the last toll hike there was a reall big hoo-haa, but it all faded away slowly. people suddenly forget about it after all the hype has died down, and continue to pay the toll obediently. malaysia mudah lupa.

or perhaps, like someone once told me, eventhough all the 26 millions malaysian voted for the oppositions, the current government will still win.
