Are Rapid and Metro busses allowed to WAIT AND STOP THE BUSES at the center of the road outside Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC)’s main gate?? It had caused traffic congestion, and a lot of times had endangered fellow drivers.

Last time, Rapid bus dropped passengers to their destinations (any of TARC gates) and drove away. But why is it that recently, Rapid buses started “GATHERING” in front of the side gates of TARC, with a few bus drivers sitting at benches (there are around 3 of them sometimes, but only 2 buses), CHIT CHATTING and “hooking” passengers?? The bus won’t start moving until 15 minutes had passed. Is it a coincidence that the 5 minutes X 3 buses = 15 minutes, and ACCURATELY, there are 3 “resting” drivers there? Because if not mistaken, one Rapid bus would pass that area every 5 minutes. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Is that a new “system” or they’re just doing it wrong?

Dear Mr David Wong

Thank you for your comments/complaints. Please be assured that we have been chasing DBKL to relocate the market to a suitable i.e. away from residential area. We have called the DBKL Wangsa Maju Branch and written several letters to them. Last week we have been informed that this matter has been tabled to the management committee of DBKL for a decision. The said committee was supposed to meet last week but it did not meet. I have not been informed of the new date for the meeting.

Please rest assured that I will be checking on the matter and will post whatever decision has been made regarding this matter. I am in full agreement that the market must be moved away from residential area.

Have a pleasant day.

With kindest regards

Desa Setapak Resident

YB Wee and Mr. Yaacob,

May I know what is the status on relocation of the illegal morning market in Desa Setapak? This issue has gone for months unanswered and as of this morning, those hawkers are still dominating the main road, the noises are unabated, and their attitudes are ever increasingly worsening and no doubt are are getting bold in their without much consideration to the residents around. With little or inconsistent push by DBKL, it is no wonder that those illegal hawkers bravely display their arrogance and operating with impunity with little worry of punishment. YB, please speed up the process of relocation with DBKL as we residents here are suffering from their ignorance for way too long.


Comment on WAU! What a rosy report on MAS! by The Troubleshooters

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your relentless effort. My heart is bleeding again.
We are ready to surface.

I have also read somewhere about the main issue that has been overlooked.

"The state-owned airline has already had two rights issues since Jala took over, raking in RM1.6 billion in 2007 and RM2.67 billion in 2010 to fund its operations and fleet purchases.
Industry experts said that a further injection of cash will not save MAS as "operational fixes" are required."

"The past financial fixes haven't helped MAS. Another round of money won't either, an industry source told The Malaysian Insider despite a touted RM8.4 billion aircraft renewal programme.
"Most of the past solutions for MAS, either the WAU or Jala's business transformation plan, were financial in nature to keep the airline in the black. But what is needed are operational fixes," he added."

Yes, this is what lacking in MAS leadership – an Operational person who is FIRM, FAIR and FULLY FUNCTIONAL (as in operational).

I have also written many analysis and some reports were given PERSONALLY to Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof (when he was the MD) and Tan Sri Munir Majid (when he was the Chairman).
Being Finance persons, they somehow were not able to understand operational issues.

The observations below are extracted from my report titled "ENGINEERING AND MAINTENANCE DIVISION WORK CULTURE: A PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS" dated 11 December 2003


Based on a series of investigation, study and event that have unfolded, out of plain responsibility, I would like to raise my concerns on Engineering and possibly other MAS senior Management that we may be living in an unhealthy and disturbing culture whereby:

1. We take problems for granted.
2. We fail to analyze the real underlying issues and thus not able to provide professional solutions
3. We tend to defer important issues and failed to put first thing first preferring to continue prescribing quick fixes and fire fighting instead of fire prevention.
4. We tend to contain main issues, buying time, with the hope that the issues may miraculously go away or at the very least, the individual who raised it will be frustrated, fed up and eventually give up.
5. We are slow to act and react, we tend to condone many malpractices especially among the management. We have been led to believe that if we expose these malpractices, we are backstabbing our own friends and colleagues. We failed to recognise the fact that if we do not correct and instead choose to ignore the issues, we are actually backstabbing and betrayed the trust given by the nation and the public (staff)
6. The true professionals and leaders were not given the due recognition and credit they deserve.
The non performers (yes man) are rewarded whereas the performers are sidelined simply because their superiors felt threatened by their able subordinates.
7. Many have been exposed albeit ineffectively on various course such as leadership, communication, financial, management etc. What really missing is the very basic skills of learning which is analytical, comprehension, expression, interpretation and research skills
8. We tend to tolerate our own incompetence, giving too many chances when what seriously lacking is a dose of proper lessons
9. We tend to penalize those who defy, those who had guts in exposing our own incompetence and malpractices.
10. We tend to be ignorant of the huge responsibilities that Engineering & Maintenance have to shoulder and our inaction could jeopardize many lives including our loved ones.
11. Engineering as the engine of growth and heart of MAS acutely lack professionals who can provide solutions to the needs and problems and leaders who solve problem others fear.
12. In summary, we do not seem to be doing the right things and OUITE EVIDENTLY we do not know the right things to do.

Now, after nearly 8 years under tight wrapped, it is time for me to share with the public.

Thank you 1Malaysia.


My other report and the lame response here:

I should have taken accountancy or law in university instead of nuclear engineering. What the heck, in the 70′s you you can’t escape your karma. If you are a Malay and you got credit in maths and science, you have to be streamed into science class whether you like it or not. Suddenly not so bright Malays got to take up the non science courses at university and now after more than 40 years we have these brilliant Malays as our corporate leaders.

Where do you find all those science students who later graduated with their masters and PhDs? They are now nearing their retirement age of 58 and some have reverted to join MLM scheme to earn extra bug after retirement. Who make all the money? The art students who can’t qualify for the science stream in the 70′s.

As for me, I am still waiting for our nuclear power program to kick off if only I can get a piece of the action. What, the government is going to entice our talent overseas to come back help in our scientific development? Habislah, maybe I should go back to my kampung and “tanam kacang”.
