Komuter oh! Komuter

This morning, i had the privilege of taking the commuter to Subang Jaya station form Setia Jaya. It was only 5 mins away from respective station and nothing has changed since the last time i boarded one.

Why i took the commuter? don't ask. The company i work with has generously subsidized a bus / van shuttle from Kelana Jaya LRT Station via Subang Jaya Commuter station to reach Glenmarie. The staff only has to pay a fraction tiny winy RM30 per month. But it's not about the shuttle bus today.

I used to take the commuter to work like 10 years and about 6 years ago when i worked in KL and Bangsar respectively. Nothing has changed. For example, this morning, the next train heading towards Klang Port was scheduled at 7.23. At 7.30am, no sign of the commuter. I think they had 2 annoucements. Why i said i think? because the loudspeaker DIDN'T WORK! How on earth would they think that we, the commutees, know what was happening when the loudspeaker was kaput? Then, shortly after, the head of a train came into view. It's perfectly normal except the yellow blue commuter train was, how to say this, towed by the head. I don't care. As long as the train has arrived. My officemate feedback later: the commuter with head didn't stop at Kg Dato Harun's station. I guessed this special train only stops at crowded stations. so, she missed her train and luckily there was another one 5 mins after.

come on la. No need to talk about the lousy schedule. The very instrument required to tell people of the delay @ lousy schedule also don't work. Some people may say "eh! you don't know what KTM is facing la". In that case, why ask me to pay the tax if this not-free service is not reliable? Really pity those poeple who rely on this mode of transportation. Like this girl this morning, she missed her ride to from the next station.

What does it take this time? YB Najib has to turun padang?

Life Goes on, babe

well, all i can say is: RIP Michael Jackson @ Mikaeel.

Sofiya's latest update: able to climb the sofa, bed and configure my laptop. haish ini budak...
Next appt at UMMC @ June 30th, pm.

My latest update: 2 weeks every working day at Fitness First. Sampai pancit. adeshh..but fun la..at least some calories are being burned than nothing. must continue. Most people are point blank SALAH. I joined Fitness First NOT because i want to lose weight. I can do that even w/o joining FF. I want to rev up my metablic rate. I want to be physically active, again. Manatau leh join Bootcamp Msia as Instructor..kuangkuangkuang...After i reach those, losing weight will be the confirmed byproduct. Via healthier means.

Flojo, no more maggi with tulur. Mau naik 800cal 1 serving kalau itu macam.
Neng, maybe we can "cycle" together for 5km everyday. everytime on the cycle machine, musti ingat kau. i wonder how u can do it...i am trying my hardest...

Looking forward to: company's Redang Trip July 9th-12th. i hope it's gonna be fun. (frankly, i have no tingling feeling about this trip. dont know why.it's bad. for me). But look at Laguna's Redang view~ nice eh?

I got my new tops and maxi dress from TS. Thanks babe!! they're pretty and sure cover tummy punya. I like!!! www.maharanilicious.blogspot.com.

Emotionally unstabil due to everchanging hormones. waaa...ntah2 aku nih geng Ben10. kuangkuangkuang.

Lots of going ons with work nowadays. Frustation on human behaviour. My own expectation on my seniors which frustates me even more. New challenges at work and few more headcounts to train. Now, that is fun and what make the office sounds fun nowadays.

Tetiba teringat kat seseorang bila dengar certain lagu. arghh..jangan layan.

Yeay..good for her! hehe..ok My niece got a place in UITM shah alam to do her accountancy-banking related degree. I'm happy for her but i will be more happier if she got UTM Skudai indtead. Why? her elder sister is there. Enough said. Me? well, i can help her during registration, look for room, and check on her once in a while but she's an adult. I don;t want to interfere her adult life hehe..our relationship is although not so close (since we lived mostly apart) but we're not stuck to the traditional auntie-niece relationship.

enough said. My point is, lucky her registration is on the July 5th. My trip to Redang will be on July 9th.

Yesterday, June 15th, i was having a chit cah twith one of the organiser of the said trip who by the way, will not be joining us for the trip. My comment: The trip shall be organised by people who WILL JOIN the trip itself. Do not rely on travel agents whatsoever because we are the one who's going to go the journey and we know our colleagues better.

It's gonna be a 3D2N trip and we will move from KL about 11pm on July 9th, Thursday, So, we shall be having lunch in Laguna Redang Resort by July 10th, Friday.
Friday afternoon, Sat AM & PM - will have activity such as 2 x snorkeling trips and 1 x jungle trekking. I was kind of curious of the trekking part and i did some research on the net.
The trekking will not be as tough as trekking in Taman Negara as it is viewed more on bird-watching activity and running around in some bushes..hehe

Sounds fine by me UNTIL i was told the trekking MAYBE replaced with TELEMATCH. OMG!!!!
We had our telematch during family day and please do not let another one in this trip!!!
Since the idea of this trip is getting away from all the headaches rather than a teambuilding trip, then do not do any telematch at all unless the telematch will comprise of activities for adults aka teambuilding-based activity. Even so, it will definitely ruin my fun, at the least.
I think telematches are reserved for school sports day, comp family day, kindergarden open day, apartment social day, etc. and now i am gonna have a telematch in my supposedly-relaxing company trip? oh well, i may as well watch only and do my own things. who am i to go against them.

Upon polite-questioning with one of committee, yeah, they did the research on the trekking and the fact that it's one of the activity in the things to do in Redang was not even put into consideration. The excuse i get was what about those staffs who will present MC la, doc letter la, etc. Then i asked again, what about those staffs who want to do all those activity? what about us? why only think of them? we're not so damn very important meh????
Then , there's the queastion of MANDATORY word usage. If they intends to make it MANDATORY for people to join the telemactch, why can't they do the same for the trekking/hiking? No people ever DIE during hiking in Redang you know. urghghhh.....

Checkout one of the page:

I am angry but if the trip is intended to entertain those wimpies ONLY, so be it. Tell it to our face that it's not even meant for us.

Heed me well, i am gonna rep Valve Division in sport committee FY09/10. You have my word.

Do we really need another resthouse on Mount Kinabalu?

Reading thru The Star and images of 2 young doctors from Peninsular Malaysia in Penampang in their bid to understand the locals hardship to get proper medcare, warms up my heart. The bid of parent of Errica Rendey Banyan from Kapit, Sarawak for some help in meeting their daily expenses while Errica is having her treatment in KL next month, touched my heart. Pls donate at: PUBLIC BANK 311 466 5431 (read NST) . The public could also contact Errica's grandfather, Angi Sawing at 013-5734301.

But the next article, does not.

Do we really need another resthouse on Mount Kinabalu?

The last project was halted after the protest by environmental group including by The Sabah Environmental Protection Association (Sepa) in 2006 and today, it came out in The Star that the state governmnet would like aka "is reviewing" to proceed with the RM4.35mil 4-storey steel resthouse-cum-restaurant project on Layang-Layang.

Heck, maybe at last, the state gov has seen that their move to privatise the service at Laban Rata was a mistake. Why? it is getting costlier to climb mount Kinabalau compared to 1985 when the climbers had the fun to cook their own meal or buy from the canteen. I wasn't there but some bloggers who happen to be avid climbers did. Maybe is is because package climber get the priority to climb compared to non-hotel guests. Maybe Sabah Parks need this project to provide cheaper facilities to the climbers as way of saying sorry. Maybe even to avoid people not climbing the old grandma anymore.

I like to call her Grandma because she looks like a Grandma to me haha (i AM talking about Mount Kinabalu, you know). From several blogs, i can read the locals and tourists do love her. Maybe it's the view, maybe it's in the ambience or the nice feeling she radiates everytime. heck, i have never climbed her but everytime i sang along to "Sayang-sayang Gunung Kinabalu" or even look at her, i get this warm, soothing feeling. Yeah, i am a psycho.

The article in the paper reminds me of the protest 3 years ago and now, those majestic images being ruined by civilisation is haunting me. where got la....i am a psycho, remember. But any development, civilisation will have impact on the nature. Tell me which one does not. But if you ask my immature, amateur, non-climber view - the project will definitely stir things up and will affect the environment up there. Can we de-privatise the current resthouse? Or maybe demolish the unspoken law of non-hotel guests will fill the last few vacant spots in the climbing list? Or lower the lodging + food cost up there?

Or maybe the locals politicians are too scared of voicing out these against the conglomerate for the fear of their own rice bowl?Or maybe someone's commission is being cutoff? These maybe wild allegations, assumptions but then tell me, why the state is even reviewing the project when the current situation is in dire need of review/rectification/reconsideration? From where i see it, the state gov is trying their best to take care of rich people heart by saying "let's move on" instead of taking into consideration the feeling of the locals? How sure are they that this project WILL NOT affect the environment whatsoever? Oh i forgot, If they have successfully helped demolishing the "20 Perkara", alaaa....how much la does it take to demolish the pride of being a Sabahan and a proud member of a state home to the Mount Kinabalu? Why don't ya levelled the mount altogether? ohh i forgot. Their ricebowls lay in Laban Rata.

Oh no, another images flash through- the major landslides in Bukit Antarabangsa. Though the area is , well, a mountain of rocks but tempering with the natural rock formation, etc is a scary idea for me. Blasting rocks to give way for a concrete building foundation seems odd to me. It's not natural at all. What's wrong with camping? Setting up tents are fun. Moreover, there is no confirmation whatsoever that the cost of climbing will go down as the only statement that came out in the press was" it could be cheaper?".

Well, It will be protested again by the environmental groups i tell you. We have enough of wrongdoing and we have perfected our skills in ruining mother nature. I don't need another skill and "Accomplishment" in my resume. Buli Bah Kalau Kau!!!!!!!!!!!
