Since there are no guidelines Adam does his laundry in the river. Eco friendly detergents of course:-)It could only happen in Malaysia I suppose. It took our Deputy Prime Minister to announce that from 2009 residents of multi-level residences will not be allowed to dry their clothes in the open “where the whole world can see......"
Maybe our DPM has too much free time on his hands. Maybe the minister of local housing is too blur for this job even. Maybe the DPM is fed up with all this airing of dirty laundry by p0litical parties, geriatric ex-ministers and bloggers that he decided to make a grand symbolic gesture. Who knows!
According to The Star story....
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said a guideline should be in place so that developers would be made responsible for preparing a special area or the proper facilities in its properties for drying clothes.
As usual la. Shoot first. Then go and place the target.
If there is no guideline in place yet what is the point of the announcement? Or for that matter, if the DPM would come down from his Kenny Hills, Damansara Heights or UK Heights homes and visit a typical Malaysian "multi-level residence" (I wonder who gave him that imagnative description) he would know that drying clothes in the open “where the whole world can see” is a necessity given the approved designs of many of Malaysia's "multi-level" residences. If don't hang out the window then hang where Yang Berhormat??? Not all of us can afford to buy electric clothes dryers you know. And weren't you one of those smart-ass fuckers who told us to change our lifestyle and tighten our belts? So now you're telling us to spend more on equipment and electricity issit? What the fuck la? Make up your mind la dei!!! Or at least stop sounding stupid can ah? Prime Minister in waiting somemore.
But I will say one thing about this man who wants to be our Prime Minister. He is optimistic. Listen to this...
“For the time being, it is more on making the moral switch. If it does not work, then we have to consider amending existing laws,” he said, adding a circular would be issued by the ministry next year to inform local authorities of the decision.
He is expecting people to make a 'moral switch'??? That is optimism indeed. Malaysians can't even make a moral switch to keep their toilets clean. And they are going to do this? Yeah YB, you the man!!
Just to put a knot in the clothesline he ended by saying...
".....it would be the duty of local authorities and the Commissioner of Buildings to inform developers and managements of flats, apartments and condominiums to see to it that the guideline was followed."
Guideline??? What guideline???
Hiyah! Wait la rakyat. We'll come out with one. Eventually. Wait ah...I got a submarine sale to go to. Later brudders!!!
