It is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED AND SADDEN to realize that :
- None of the reservoir in Selangor were cleaned in 2008, resulting in poor water quality.
- Sungai Sireh water treatment plant in Kuala Selangor has not been washed for over 10 years
- The Terenggau govt wasted MYR10.5MM buying 26 buses that had to be virtually grounded
- A total of MYR308.7K was spent on maintaining 2 Proton Perdana that were originally purchased at MYR234K.
- The auditor also uncovered unauthorized use of fuel cards by personnel in the state secretariat and the Public Work Depts
- 3 govt cars, bearing reg. no. of PED21, PAF1, PBF1 had frequent tyres replacements.
- MYR649MM excess tax was refunded late.
- Penang Municipal of Council had overspent MYR3.5MM to pay 7 solid waste collection contractors, these overpayment since 2007 was not rectificed but was escalated from MYR1.63MM (2007) and MYR1.54MM (2008).
- No due diligence review by Pelancongan Nasional S/B before investment, 7 subsidiaries and associated companies have accumulated losses of MYR 32.37 MM until 12/31/2008.
These are only part of those significance findings by our Auditor -General in 2009. Year by year, some of these mis-conducts are getting serious and more ridiculous .
So taxpayers, now you know that where your tax paid is being " utilized". Don't forget to submit your BE2009 by 4/30/2010 wor.

In fact, I hate to make a decision on spot among emerged choices but I need a pair of new sport shoes to replace. I have been wondering if I had bought the shoes I really like for changing my mind on what I had decided.
Before that, I had actually decided going back to the 2nd sport shop to buy the pure black Reebook after the dinner. I was too hungry to made a decision among all I had tried with, the Fila I saw at 1st sport shop is worth for reconsideration. All these shoes are on sales, all discounted prices are quite attractive against their comfort level offered. Comfortability is very important for a shoe other than the design, I hardly found shoes I like recently.
Lucky me just now. I realized that I was given 2 left brown Nike shoes when I attempt to wear it going dinner with my youngest brother. WOOwwwW ......were I or was he too careless? This might be an irreversible mistake if I realize it only when I return to KL or when I pack my luggage at next 2 nights. Then, the cheaper shoes becomes expensive for either 1 lesson paid with 2 left shoes or cost my brother for the help.
Lesson(s) learned -- Women, don't crazy for sales ........Always double check though you saw the salesman packing the shoes you just tried with.

Something very funny has occured at this pair of shoes and for first and ever this has occurred, only to this pair of shoes for numerous pairs i had/have worn since I walk.
Have you noticed something ? It is not regard with the torn areas. The colour, the colour on the right shoe has been found fading faster than left shoe. I have been wondering the reason for many months, they are always placed at same place or walking down same paths. As can be seen, traces and torn area are compatible for both left and right but color is not.
This is OK for a pair of shoe, but if this happen between you and your partner .... leave it or mend it ?

Both of my great grandfathers' and grandfather's tomb are located at 2 different places in Klang.
If I am not mistaken, today is the 1st time 4 of us accompanying our parents for this festival. We might have going together like today when we were young, but I could not remember at all. Perhaps, we had not....it has been any of us who were free following or accompanying them instead. I could only remember I cried pestering my parents to follow them to tomb sweeping, I was five in that year. My dad shouldered me climbing fences surrounding tombs before reaching my grandpa's tomb. It was a raining day and both of us nearly stumbled on the fence.
We had Bak Kut Teh after sweeping my great grandfathers' tombs with uncle, aunt and cousin.
Then my family only went to sweep my grandfather's tomb at further distance from Klang downtown.Before back to KL, we looked for the "ABC" ices at the old hawker place.This was one of the food spot my father used to bring us for when we came to Klang during Sunday.
Though it was a normal Sunday or just a "duplicate" Sunday we used to have, this was a great and precious time we had other than the Chinese New Year nowsaday. In fact, we had not been living under same roof since Sept 2006:
- 1996 Sept --I left for study
- 1998 July - Chung Yau left for study at early month, I returned in month end
- 1999 Sept --I left for working
- 2004 June -Chung Yang left for study
- 2004 July -- I returned for good
- 2007 Dec - Chung Yau returned for good, but always lives outside rather than home.
- 2008 Oct -Yee Jia left for working.
- 2008 Nov - Chung Yau married and moved out.
Returning home at afternoon, Chung Yang started getting himself prepared to catch his bus back to Singapore. Chung Yau returned his home after meal, Yee Jia will return to HK in coming Thursday when she need to return to her work.
I missed those days we waited for each other watching Hong Kong drama /movie rented, or evenings we watched dramas from TV2 or TV3 with our dinner plates on our hand respectively.

At her 1st day she came to my house in last December, I took a nap after lunch because I was not feeling well. She woke me up every 3 minutes pestering me to take medicine after she knew that I was not feeling well. In next few days, Yi-Yan saw me having the chewing gum and asked me on spot. I told her that the gum was the medicine as I believe she is too young to have chewing gum at her age of 6. I noticed that she observed me taking the rest of "medicine" in following days , she had only asked another time to clear her suspicious if it was really the medicine. She must have wondered how come I did not sleep or how come I took the medicine for looking healthy, but she was quiet about these. That was 1 day in the following week.
Recently I took chewing gum in front of her, she asked me on spot what was I eating. I bluffed to her like 5 months ago. Standing beside my table, she picked up the wrapping paper and read the wording –Chewing Gum. Off course, she asked me: “Why it is written Chewing Gum”. She caught me wordless!
Yi –Yan is a very playful kid and it is quite difficult to get her to sit well finishing her homework without any rest. Her mother has always prepared a timetable scheduling her time for games, writing, coloring , drawing, TV and anything in daytime when she stays with us
One afternoon, I requested her to replicate my drawing in an A4 side paper. She refused by saying “This is your paper.”
I mentioned that I would like her to have the paper, but she kept on rejecting my offer and told me that she could not take my office paper.
No matter how I explained and reassured her, she insisted that it was my office paper and the paper is for office used.
Our conversation was eventually ended with an open remark. She pointed to my laptop and uttered, “ Can you give me your computer? Can you give me your pencil case?”
I was astounded, I was wordless and seriously I did not know how to answer her remark.
You see, she wins ultimately !
