We'll listen to all sides on Jalan Alor......
This was the response of the Federal Territory minister to protests on the decision to rename the globally famous Malaysian street. City Hall changed all the road signs from Jalan Alor to Jalan Kejora last week.
Listen to all sides? What do you mean listen to ALL sides? Why is it that when Y.B.'s (titled officers) fuck up WE, the rakyat (citizens) are asked to explain why we are pissed off? Shouldn't the mayor of Kuala Lumpur, the datuk bandar be strung up by the balls and asked to scream out his explanation on why he wasted public funds and public servants' efforts in this useless exercise? Well? We are waiting. What? Want to know why we are pissed off first ah? So the YB can have some time to manufacture some answers or arrange for a quick lawat sambil belajar (study trip) trip to Taiwan issit? Wait ah...don't get too angry yet people. There is more. Here is the other headline of the story in The Star...
New name to signify cosmic change in Bukit Bintang......
Cosmic change in Bukit Bintang? The only change I've noticed in the area recently is perhaps its resemblance to a mythical massage and reflexology capital of an imaginary country somewhere in a truly Asian setting.
The datuk bandar admitted that the name change had been in planning for 3 years as part of DBKL's (City Hall's) efforts to rename roads in the Bukit Bintang area after planets of the solar system!!! Bukit Bintang is Malay for Star Hill you see. And so they spent 3 years planning this crazy, useless exercise while ...... garbage in KL streets remain uncollected....... Pot holes in KL roads continue to crack vehicle axles...... crime rates rise to a level where even policemen and the home minister are scared...... Don't the DBKL people have better things to occupy their time? If they don't other than with things like this perhaps it is about time we get rid of the whole team altogether. Nothing to do what. So waffor?
It's things like this that makes Malaysians damn "too lan" (fed-up) la.
