Shit reasoning.

On page N18 of The Star today, the deputy minister of education was quoted as saying that parents who want their children to enjoy 5-star toilet facilities in their schools must be prepared to pay. Be afraid, be very afraid......this guys is the deputy minister of EDUCATION! But he is just perpetuating our typical Bolehland approach to doing anything these days which seems to be Don't address the inherent problem. Just spend money to buy stuff.

Since we are speaking of toilets in Malaysia, my wife just told me this horrifying story. She and the kids were in one of the KLCC toilets recently and witnessed its cleaning procedure. The cleaner came in with a mop and bucket. She proceeds to one of the toilet stalls and ....... wait for it ....... dunks the mop into the toilet bowl, flushes the toilet and rinses her mop in it! Then she proceeds to mop the toilet floor and repeats the process. And this is the KLCC, folks. Welcome to our capital city.

I once witnessed a toilet cleaner using the same mop to mop the toilet floor and then without even rinsing it in the toilet bowl or bucket uses the same mop to 'clean' the wash basins and table tops!

So you think behaviour and attitudes like these can be solved with money and more equipment?

Oh before I forget, here is today's MSM mystery. Why would anybody propose a theme park for an international airport?

Well, in all their infinite wisdom Malaysia Airports Bhd. are proposing just that. Its managing director has announced that 10,000 ha. of land around the KLIA is to be developed. The development will include a recreation park, business centres, offices and a theme park. I think that being the managing director of Malaysia Airports he should concentrate on making KLIA a better airport and making sure that it is used to its full capacity. Instead he's going to put his resources behind some pussy footing attempts at building something out in the middle of nowhere and expecting people to want to go there to have a good time at the theme park? Hello? Priorities la, priorities. Okay la so I know that there's a lot of money to be made by launching a project like that, right? Clearing forests, building infrastructure, approving stuff, appointing contractors, handing out contracts and the list goes on. It might be interesting to find out who the owners are of those 10,000 ha. of land which I guess otherwise would be just...land. Well, I guess the bright side is that KLIA will be in the record books as the first airport that has a theme park attached.

i know, its disgusting! i witness that as well in my office block. How come these cleaners clean the toilets this way? Were they not taught the correct way of cleaning?

Niamah, You know what. I witnessed the same method of cleaning at Changi airport once!

I used to work on the Changi underground train station construction project sometime (1998) back and spent a fair bit of time loitering in the airport.
On one occasion while I was washing my hands in the toilet basin, I noticed through the mirror the cleaning lady doing the same thing. No shit.

Nothing shocks me now. I'd rather crap in my pants than use a public toilet in asia.

No point paying for a 5star toilet in schools anyway. The janitor, like they have some secret society or something almost always comes up with great toilet ghost stories so that kids get scared going into the toilets and naturally, less work for them janitors. Lets all put our kids on pampers and urine bags, solve the problem.

KLIA is a disgrace, the window to Malaysia with many defects, many of them simple to solve e.g.
1.
The bank of clocks showing the time in various cities around the world, believe or not they are each stand alone clocks (poor time keepers too)the result is that the times vary by a few minutes, what utter stupidity. I remember when European Summer Time ended, that the clock were not corrected until days later.
The clocks should all be synchronised slaves (individually adjustable for daylight saving times, etc.) of an accurate master clock
The flight arrival and departure information time are late to be displayed, often inaccurate and thus are misleading and of limited use.
The KLIA web site is a joke, the layout is dreadful, some of the fonts used are difficult to read, the flight arrival and departure information system is very bad.
The layout and colour scheme are dreadful. The whole web site is not user friendly or appealing to the eye.
3.
Try to give feedback to MAB, they never even bother to acknowledge the letter or email. Phones are invariably not answered.
4.
The car parks are ill kept and dirty.
5. The toilets, both airside and in the public areas are in a mess, WC seats are missing, doors are hanging off
Etc., etc., etc., etc.

Does any one give a fuck? Of course not, this is Malaisea mah!

LOL .... earplugs got charged or not at the theme park @ KLIA?
Think we all know it is not the matter of the theme park, it's the CUT here and there la ...NiamahEhh smell another doomed project!

Hi Patrick...

I am sure you also know this, the cleaners also use the mops to clean the toilet seats!!! And this is usually after mopping the floor of the stalls...no rinsing either...

It is really disgusting and I avoid using public toilets as far as possible. However due to this, I have developed super strong thigh muscles in my bids to hover over the toilet bowls!

On Theme park by MAB, alas, the bottom line, again, WHAT IS IN IT FOR THEM IF A PROJECT KICK OFF.... Whether eventually the project succeed or fail is immaterial.... The "idiot" would have made his $$ and left office when the project fail...

What a pity that the nation is heading.....Expecting travellers to "stop-by" to enjoy the Theme Park and other facilities adjacent to the airport.

As far as I can remember, the toilets in the school during my own school days many monkey years back are places you go if you have an " emergency ". If you can tahan, tahan until you go home to do your business. These toilets are also punishment methods. Each time the educators think that you are not good enough, they will send you to go wash the toilet. So will this 5 star toilet concept teach the kids to always keep the toilet clean ? We grow up with the thought that toilets are not sleeping places.

As for KLCC, the toilets are breaking down like the ones in KLIA. Again, somehow the public does not think cleanliness is that very important. That is one. Two, is when the management has to struggle with the high costs of maintaining these world class buildings. So toilets are the last in the least of maintainence. However don't be too hard. Go to any western country. Go to Singapore. The thought of having a toilet room to sleep in is slowly fading away too.

Talking about world class, walk into KLIA, do you think that we need such a world class airport that fail to catch people carrying drugs, that does not handle your baggage with care, that has staff saying obscene words ? In fact, there are a lot of space. So much space. And Air Asia should be allowed to use its' terminals. Are we really so rich ? Where should the theme park be ? In the second terminal for foreign airlines ? Do you realize that the waiting room in the departure lounge does not open until minutes before the plane takes off ?

few years back i was on the way to malacca and we stopped at the r&r somewhere near malacca border.. my daughter wanted to go to the toilet
mind you the toilet was quite spotless, there wasnt much crowd and the it was pretty deserted.. as we walked inside I heard an angry woman's voice and a boy's complaining inside one of the toilet cubicle..and then as we were passing the toilet door was slammed open.. i couldnt help looking.. whats seemed to be the problem, you know..and then i noticed.. there in the toilet bowl sits pile of her son steaming hot ****.. they hurried left without flushing, this orang utan..once outside we passed her again as she was hurrying up into her car.. a brand new Honda..

imagine if you the toilet cleaner of the day

Fucking idiot. He should just improve the bloody service at the airport la. Everyone there (i mean the custom officers) look like they've had shit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whatever happened to service with a smile? And the speed of your bags from the time plane to the carousel is so slow it makes you feel like you've grown a thousand years older for waiting for your luggage. My normal flight time to Singapore is 50 minutes. Time waiting for my luggage? 30 minutes at least! So fucking stupid.

Uncle Pat, ..i was at Bukit Nanas Monorail Station this morning at 8.30am... humm.. YES.. the same mop to mop everything, imagin the spit & what not on the floor & its back on the railing on the platform & the small area to sit ! Ewww.. so disgusting as I watched the cleaner doing her job this morning & I remembered your blog.
Uncle Crazy 2.52PM, ..try the Ninoy Aquino Manila Int. Airport. Before you come out of the plane your luggage already circulating on the belt ! Super efficient.

Dear Patrick,

I saw the same thing in Sunway Pyramid Shopping Complex New Wing with their spanking new and pretty impressive toilet. This girl came in with a big pail of black colour and dirty water and pouring that entire pail into the basis next to me as I was washing my hand in the next basin. This was like 10.05 in the morning. Guess what water it was. Very very sad.......

Jane Apong said...

very very sad. i witnessed a cleaner in my office building mopping the floor & then use the same mop (without rinsing first) to wipe the toilet bowl seats. i wonder what kind of skin disease one will get when get in contact with that 'cleaned' toilet seats. yes they look clean but already contaminated by the dirty mop. i always remind my daughter just to 'hoover' when she needs to pangsai and for 'bigger business' she must put layer and layer and layer of toilet paper/tissue on the seats before she can seat on it. at least la, not get direct contact with the dirty seats. uhhhh, yucksssss....

the thought of having a recretional/ theme park next to an airport is so ludicrous- i'll probably suffer hearing loss. like cleaning toilets properly in klcc is not enough...

I think that the first and second floor toilets of the KLCC charge premium prices from those using them - RM3!!
Just imagine paying such premium prices for using such slovenly "cleaned" toilets.
This may be a minor when you consider that the whole country is in deep shit!!
It's run by a bunch of shit heads!
