2-3 weeks more of this

I am hoping the contractor who built this condo didn't have anything to do with Malaysian stadiums or Malaysian court houses.
(Sorry if I misled you guys. This is NOT a photo of my ceiling.)

Yes I know. This is not usual Niamah!!! material but it has become so much a part of my everyday life for the past month. And I am told that it will be this way for another 2 to 3 weeks more. So being the nice fler I am I must share with you lor. So please turn up the volume on your speakers and be a good friend and neighbour and suffer with me here. Can ah? A hairline crack has appeared on the ceiling right above my head and is spreading which prompted a fellow-tweep to comment, "Remember to smile when it all comes crumbling down! Your epitaph will read that you went doing what you did best, in the middle of a joke and with a smile. That'll be so fitting."

Ya! That's what makes us Malaysians special. We laugh in the face of danger. We taunt adversity. We sit right under where the cracks are appearing....Eh? Wait a minute....Errr...I better get out of here. Now.

Niamah!!!

Please wear a crash helmet (be sure it is SISIR certified one) while at home.

PCK would tell you that such matter Don't Play Play.

Oh dear Patrick, that's utter torture. No other place for you to take refuge while the drilling goes on? :(

Did you say Condo? I thought only minor renovation allowed in Condo. Any lawyers can check ah?

True Fiction said...

Hairline crack spreading? Not a good sign expecially if you are in a multistorey building. Have you determined the root cause of the crack?

Richard Loh said...

Patrick,

The photo if correct, the crack is not hairline crack, it is a big crack. From the look of it, I see the steel reinforcement are exposed and the concrete floor is broken.

Or the photo is showing some kind of service duct. Please do call the condo maintenance fellow to come and have a look. This is serious.

Najib's job as Prime Minister is not just to express sadness at rise of extremism but to provide leadership to stamp out racial bigotry and religious extremism especially when they come from UMNO and allied or outsourced groups

Anonymous said...

The objective of Najib’s 1Malaysia is to build a Malaysian nation where every Malaysian regards himself or herself as Malaysian first and race second – but Muhyiddin had publicly declared that he is Malay first and Malaysian second.

As result, despite my challenge in Parliament, there is not a single Barisan Nasional Minister in Parliament who dared to contradict Muhyiddin by declaring that he or she is a Malaysian first and race second.

With the strongest opposition to his 1Malaysia policy coming from within his own camps and even in Cabinet, is Najib prepared to take a stand that there is no place in his Cabinet for any Minister or Deputy Prime Minister who is not prepared to declare that he or she is Malaysian first and Malay second?

If you are still a radio DJ today (Malaysia Day), what songs would you play for your Malaysian listeners and why?

wah, you don't complain so much about contractors and developers, man. You don't want your naughty pictures to be aired on youtube or other naughty sites, you hear? But wtf can you expect from our local contractors? "Chiak kang, chiak liau" (cut corners on labour and material).

Matt said...

Mr. Above, whatsoever, life is very simple, you wanna do a work do it properly not half heartedly, no heart to do don't do, if you cannot tahan, go find a different job, very simple.. and you know? it's beacuse of people like you who taint bloody scars on Malaysia, thats why the country is so screwed up! Go ahead and do whatever you like, what goes around comes around, may it be in different ways but it'll come back to you...

You sound like you survived a building collapsing on you ... well, except for your brain which has been flattened by the building. So you're now walking and talking without a brain.

You sure get a lot of Anonymous comments! It is when we are afraid to stand up, speak out and do something that we get bullied by the Gamen. (Sorry, I just wrote an article about children and bullying so that came right out of my head).

Some people(are they even?) are really shocking.

So please don't give me that holier than thou shit. Do you have a head ?

I want your opinion on the matter below.

Page 8 of todays's (Friday 17 Sept) The Sun newspaper has a headline "New law to punish profiteers", i.e. Price Control & Anti-Profiteering Bill, once taken effect, will take action against those F&B outlets that sell plain water for RM1 (with 95% profit).

On the same paper on the same day, Page 5 is the advertisement by a local Telco (the blue one) on its so-called pre-paid 'Broadband' of 384 Kps access speed.

How on earth can anyone call 384 kps access speed a broadband? We are now in year 2010, not 2000.

Anything less tahn 1MBps should not be termed broadband.

Should such blatant profiteering by Telsocs be handled under 'Price Control & Anti-Profiteering Bill'?

Dear Patrick,

looking at the photo, the contractor has exposed the steel bars at the bottom of the slab. This is the tension area and normally i would ask that the slab is supported before carrying out such a job. This could affect the structural integrity of the slab. It pays to be safe.
In making good, it is not sufficient to just patch up as for the slab to perform structurally one must ensure that the concrete has proper bonding to the steel bars and to the old concrete. This is a specialist job.

Simpulan Bahasa baru untuk DBP:
Awang Selamat = Racist Melayu

The "Awang Selamat" pseudonym is not by a single person but by a bunch of cowardly Utusan Malaysia writers hiding their real names. Any journalist worth his salt would be proud to see his byline, so why hide behind a pseudonym? The only reason is to spew out racial bile which even their mothers would be ashamed to read.

The Chinese do not stop to think about God too much. They just go out and make money and once a year during Chinese New Year they devote to God. That is why the Chinese are successful, economically at least.

The Indians appeal to God every day but God Samy Vellu just enriches himself, his friends and his family and ignores the Indian community. But the Indians do not appear to see that God helps those who help themselves. You can’t expect others to help you. If India maintained that same level of thinking as the Malaysian Indians then India would probably still be a British colony until today.

The Malays know that praying alone does not help (they need to help themselves) so they go out and steal all the money (help themselves to the taxpayers’ funds) and then fly off to Mekah to pray for forgiveness and then come home to enjoy their ill-gotten gains.

Basically, the Chinese look after themselves. The Indians want their hands to be held. And the Malays live by the principle that the ends justify the means just as long as you repent later and pray for forgiveness just before you die and leave this world. In fact, the closer to the point of death the better because repenting and asking for forgiveness too early in life would mean you run the risk of repeating your sins and therefore would have to go through the entire repentance process all over again.

My only conclusion is, you must have a very very very ugly wife.

My only advice is, go bang balls and you will be happier. Next time choose carefully as no exchange no refund policy applies unless you are in Bolehistan.
