Thanks for the Christmas presents, Santa!

Today’s Niamah!!! moment comes from page N3 of The Star which seems to be becoming a treasure trove of Niamah!!! moments.

The city police traffic chief recommended that motorcyclists install a storage box behind their machines to beat snatch thieves. He was quoted as saying, "If motorcycles are fitted with these boxes, handbags and other valuables such as cellphones can be kept there, and I think the number of snatch thefts involving motorcycles will be reduced."

Okay, not very original but sound advice I suppose.

But read on and you see that “…the proposal came from city police traffic chief Asst Comm Hamza Taib yesterday AFTER (my capitals) GIVI Asia Sdn. Bhd. a division of the Italian motorcycle accessories maker, presented 50 motorcycle boxes and helmets to city traffic police.”

The fler who handled the GIVI spin should get a promotion.

The fler who wrote the acceptance speech for the dumb cop should be fired!!!

Keeping your valuables in the so called boxes maybe more dangerous for motorist. What if the snatch thief decides to kick/knock down the motorcyle and open the box to grab those valuable ? It sounds like solving a problem but creating a more dangerous one.

I wonder the flers who wrote the acceptance speech knows what he is writing about. Otherwise, just say thank you for those boxes. It helps the police to keep their "valuables" !!!

Haha, it's all about the money isn't it? And probably another gentle reminder that we are in Malaysia.
