  1. So just very recently I went on a trip to Msia n got into a car accident with a malaysia car. Genting to be exact. Was somewhere after Pagoh towards SG. Traffic was relatively heavy for an evening drive back. I was e one in the wrong here as I slammed into a MY Lexus. First thing was panic. Ever watched those videos on Facebook sites like Beh Chia Lor, Singapore Reckless Driver n get angry when the driver who caused the accident nvr come down immediately to check on the car that he/she rammed into? Well now I really know why.. When it happened I was overwhelmed. Shock, panic, basically overwhelmed by the feelings of doom. Getting into an accident in SG is one thing, to have it happen in MY, its my first. So just wanted to share my experience on what happened so for those who unfortunately get into one in msia, will not panic like i did. - Don't follow too closely to the car infront. Always look far. I know its smthing we all get complacent with at times. NSHW traffic as we all know it can be unpredictable. Fast, slow, fast, slow. Don't try to tailgate, always maintain a safe following distance. I wasnt following too closely or anything but I think I just didnt react fast enough to the sudden chain of ebrake. - Make sure ur phone have auto-roaming. u need to be able to call out during an emergency, data to whatsapp (some tow trucks may ask u to send photos of the exact location). - Make sure u have all the emergency numbers in ur phone. Well I didnt have. The PLUS hotline is 1800 88 0000. It is the equivalent of our EMAS. Their PLUS will only tow ur vehicle to the nearest exit. For my case they didnt and i have no idea why. They only assisted to stop traffic and tow my car and the Lexus to the road shoulder. - Standby a reliable tow truck number. Even with a tow truck number, u need to decide if u want to repair ur car in a workshop in jb or tow it back to sg. If insurance claim I think it's definitely going to be tow back to sg. For my case tow was my only option because the front of my car was badly damaged, tyre also ruptured becuz of the impact. Settled for insurance claim. And it is also best to prepare a few tow truck numbers to call. Some of them may not be available when u need them. Some of them may be located all the way in JB and will take more than an hour plus to come. No good to be stranded on the NSHW. Traffic is heavy, very dangerous. I paid RM100 for a random tow truck that stopped to tow my car to the nearest exit. I think he is those opportunist kind who will target accident cars and try to offer to tow ur car for a large sum of money. They know u are desperate so even if they offer u a high amount, u have no choice. But yah I only asked them to tow to the nearest exit so I can find other solution. Base on what I encountered, the "market rate" to tow ur car back to SG is about RM1200 to RM1400 from but also depends on ur location. This will be all the way back to ur workshop in SG. If there are cheaper towing options, please do share here for the rest of us. Never know when we may need it. I also wished I was a member of AAS. Might be able to activate AAM towing services. But u need to be a member and I wasn't one. - What to do upon an accident. Same thing like SG... If all parties are okay, decide on settlement. Take photos, call tow truck. Exchange particulars with the other party. Take photos of IC, driving license. If you are claiming another party, try to take photo of his identity card with his house add. We also made a police report. I dunno if that's the usual practice but the police accompanied us to the nearest exit to take our statements. n becuz I was at fault here, it means they will slap me with a traffic fine for careless driving. The fine is RM300. This fine is also necessary in order for the malaysian driver to claim me for insurance. N i think the statement is also needed in order to tow ur car back to sg. - After all done, wait for your tow truck to get back to sg. The truck lane open only after 12am so I had to wait till then as it happened late evening and by the time everything settled, alrdy damn late.. - So in total, my car was towed by 3 different msia tow trucks. 1st was to the nearest exit, second towed my car nearer to jb and then change another tow truck to tow into sg. right now the fate of my car lies in the hands of my workshop. just the luck of the msian car to get into an accident with an sg car plate. his claim against me will def take awhile. as for me, it is a lesson well learnt. i can blame the car way infront who caused the jam brake but to have banged into the back of a car, that is on me and my fault. no one else to blame but myself. so many trips to msia n this is the first time i gotten into this mess and i was also unprepared. to the rest who regularly travel up north, do drive safely and make sure u have sufficient cash for emergencies and the right contacts on hand in case of an emergency. even better if u have contacts to a reliable workshop in jb should ur damages not be that severe and u wanna try to get the repair done in msia. be composed and dont panic. i am also fortunate that the driver of the lexus is understanding even in that situation. knowing i am helpless he tried his best to talk to the tow truck guy and police for me as i dont speak malay. the thing is i can blame myself for what happened etc, but at the end of the day, im just glad to be bk home safely n that i didnt hurt anyone. this is going to be an expensive lesson but i have to say im happy i am even ALIVE to be able to type this. okay thats all!
  2. I made my trip last week to JB to change my set of tyres Michelin 195/65R15 XM2 4pcs Made in Thailand 2016 tyres at RM240 per piece. The tyre performance was really great and I got saving of atleast RM500 as compare to changing to Singapore (Saving from Tyres & Petrol). The cheapest price I could get in Singapore for this particular tyre was S$120/piece, and thus the discount is at least 50% as compared to changing tyres in JB. You guys can check it out this seller at Carousel @ https://carousell.com/p/66822027/. The service was great and I enjoyed a good Bak Kut Teh at Taman Sentosa

  6. Long way around Malaysia road trip. SG->Kuantan->Kota Bahru->Penang->KL->SG Decided to go for a long road trip, to somewhere unfamiliar in MY that I have never been before and may never visit again. Wife said ok but must stop at KL for her to shop. So I did all the planning and the places of interests to visit. 21st Jul 2018 Set off from home at 6am in the morning. Reach Woodlands Causeway at 6.20am and there was a queue already formed. Same thing at MY side. Time check, 7.20am and we cleared both custom and immigrations. Exactly 1 hour to clear both sides. First stop, heading to Kiang Kee BKT for breakfast. It has been a while since I travelled on Tebrau highway. There were some changes in the scenery, more urbanised but basically the roads still the same. Was driving at a leisurely pace and just follow the cars in front. Reached Kiang Kee BKT around 8.30am. Not too crowded, there are still seats behind the stall. So we settled sitting behind. First look, it is the same old familiar piping hot claypot BKT. But after tasting it, the familiar taste is gone. Sad to say, IMHO, the taste has declined since my last visit couple of years back. Standard has dropped. The meat on the bones does not fall off easily already. You have to yank it off with your teeth. Very sad. I guess, with increased business, quality also suffer. But what to do, just eat lor. It will not be a must eat for me anymore, go into the “optional” category liao. After breakfast, 9am, set off to East Coast Mall, Kuantan on Route 3. The roads to Mersing was the same, up and down with left and right twisty bends. Took it slow as I don’t wish my passenger to vomit her breakfast on to my car mat. Was doing 80 to 90km/h. The scenery was the same old plantations and the odd kampong here and there. It was until Rompin a sleepy fishing village that the roads are finally clear of traffic and twisty turns that I can allow my car to stretch her legs. 120km/h was the norm now, woohoo. The passenger did not ask for a pee stop and I don’t need a pee stop. The car was more than ready to continue on the journey without stopping, thatz the advantage of having a 70L fuel tank that I had it full tank from SG. Pekan town flashed by and at around 12noon, we are in Kuantan city already. It was slightly hazy when we arrived. There was a strong smell of burnt forest in the air. East Coast Mall in Kuantan was one of our planned stop for rest, food and shopping. Had lunch, pad thai and proceeded to shopping in the mall. Then we crossed over via the back entrance to the mall next door, Kuantan City Mall. This mall was quieter but as modern as East Coast Mall. East Coast Mall attracts younger crowd cos it has a cinema within the mall. We did some grocery shopping at Giant, looking for lower priced household items and some necessities for the road trip like stocking up on mineral water to hydrate ourselves. They wanted to charge us for plastic bag but lucky we had our recycle bags with us.

  10. Azizul Hj Tandek, managing director of Enggang Keramat Automobile, told paultan.org that the company will be launching a new Malaysian car brand called SAF – named after the arrangement of Muslims in prayer – in April this year. The new lineup will consist of rebadged versions of models from the Chinese brand Foday, namely the Lion F22 pick-up truck and the Landfort seven-seater SUV. The two vehicles will be badged as the SAF Striker and SAF Landfort respectively, and will look identical to the Foday models, albeit with SAF badging. Both models will be built at Oriental Assemblers in Tampoi, Johor, the same company that also assembles Chery models in Malaysia. Only one engine will be available from launch – a Mitsubishi-derived 4G69S4N 2.4 litre petrol engine delivering 134 hp at 5,250 rpm and 200 Nm of torque from 2,500 to 3,000 rpm. Five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions are on offer, as is a choice of either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive (Striker pick-up will be 4×4 only). The Striker is expected to be priced below RM100,000, while the Landfort SUV is slated to cost less than RM150,000. Exact kit has yet to be decided, but both models should come with dual airbags and ABS with EBD; no stability control on offer, however. Enggang Keramat is looking at an initial run of 100 units for each model when the brand is launched next month, available at 20 dealers nationwide – all 3S centres – in both Peninsular and East Malaysia. http://paultan.org/2016/02/29/new-malaysian-brand-saf-to-launch-april-striker-pick-up-and-landfort-suv-to-be-based-on-foday-models/

    Tyre and rim change in Sg Or MY

    Hi all, I am currently driving an Elantra on 15” stock tires. I have been reading both HWZ and MCF on this topic and would like to get everyone’s opinion: 1. The reason why I am considering upsizing my tire from 15” to 16” is to allow me to choose more tires. Currently based on the stock tires (195/65/15), I don’t have much choices. Based on some recommendation and my current tire, I am considering CPC5. But if I upsize, I can consider Primacy or PSS (I know the 2 types are totally different type). Should I upsize my tire? If I shouldn’t upsize, the next question wouldn’t be valid. 2. Based on what I have read, tires below 16” will be cheaper to get in MY. However, I am worried if I upsize, I will need to change my rim as well and I believe the rim will be the main cost of upsizing. Apologies for this troublesome question. If anyone can help me on this, it will be very very helpful.
  17. Long Distance Driving Tips Heading for the highway With the June holidays around the corner The Highway offers you and your family some crucial pointers on preparing both yourself and your car for long distance haul, whether its just across the Causeway or even further afield. Things to check before a long trip Tyres Check if the tyre treads are still good - there should be a minimum of between 2-3mm thread depth. A thread wear indicator is a raised part of the tread that will appear when the thread is reaching its minimum safe tread depth. On most cars the front tyres will wear out faster than the rear ones. If they have about 5,000km on them, it might be good to have them rotated with the rear tyres. Tyres should be rotated every 5,000 to 10,000km in order for all four tyres to wear evenly. Note: on some high-performance models, the rear tyres will be a different size to the front tyres. In this instance the tyres should never be swapped over. Always check that front and rear tyres are the same size before rotation. Remember to check that the spare tyre is useable - it tends to be forgotten until it needs to be used - by which time it's too late. It should be under slightly more pressure than the other four tyres. The owner's manual should have the recommended pressures for each tyre, including the spare. Always set the tyre pressures when cold to ensure the correct inflation pressures. Engine Long distance driving is actually less taxing on an engine than stop and go city traffic. Even so, if it hasn't been serviced for a while, it would be wise to bring the car in for a check-up. Another thing to look out for might be the condition of the various rubber hoses - if they are soft and swollen, they should be changed before they burst. Other things to look into are levels for coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid and the windscreen washer reservoir. If you are not mechanically familiar with your vehicle, the AA offers a comprehensive pre-trip vehicle inspection for you. Emergency Equipment Anyone driving along a highway must have is a reflective warning triangle. Should a car breakdown, you should pull over to the road shoulder and deploy the triangle at least 60m behind the car - more if you can safely do so. It should be placed far enough to allow the other cars to reduce speed and avoid your car. Also remember to get all the passengers out of the car and off the highway. Other things that might come in handy include a can of tyre foam, a multi-purpose flashlight that includes a blinker, and an empty emergency petrol can. Should you suffer a breadown, remember that as AAS members, you have access to the services of AA (Malaysia) when you are across the Causeway. Call their toll free 24-hour emergency hotline at 1800 880 808 for assistance or advice on the location if the nearest approved workshop. More details are available on the internet at www.aas.com.sg. Pre-Trip Health Inspection Basic checks you should always carry out on your car before a long distance trip. Headlights Carry spare headlight bulbs and ensure main beam and dip are working. Engine Check fluid levels for coolant, brakes, power steering and windscreen washer. Tyres and Wheels Ensure no sharp objects are embedded and tread is at least 2mm deep. Baby Seat Should be securely fastened. Follow manufacturer's instructions. Petrol Have at least 3/4 tank filled before reaching Singapore customs. Overseas driving tips Take frequent breaks Most Singaporeans are not used to long distance driving as we don't get much exposure to journeys longer than an hour. In most instances highway driving is quite a monotonous activity and spending many hours behind the wheel puts a tremendous strain on the driver. If there is a single designated driver, make frequent rest stops, and someone should be assigned to keep the driver alert and entertained. Not all highways are equal Most of us are used to the PIE or CTE, which are wide and well-lit, but this may not be the case for highways outside the major city areas overseas. Because of night lighting is often poor or non-existent, try to avoid doing any long distance driving at night. Beware of jetlag Jumping into a rented car immediately after a 12-hour intercontinental flight is not a good idea. The combination of jetlag, unfamiliar roads and the unfamiliarity of the car increase the chances of an accident happening. It is probably more prudent to take a taxi or airport limousine to one's hotel immediately after the flight, and collecting the rental car after a night's rest. A handy rule of thumb for overcoming jetlag is that it takes one day for every timezone crossed. This means if the time difference between Singapore and London is seven hours, it will take seven days for one's body to fully recover. Few of us will have the luxury of this time frame to adjust our body clocks, so caffeine and exposure to sunlight are some of the more popular short cuts that people used to adjust their body clocks. Getting prepared Try to do some research before embarking on a long distance drive. The information one gets from maps and guidebooks of the place you are going to visit seldom goes to waste. A host of maps are available from the AA. More often than not, there may trains or buses to most locations you want to visit. Whenever possible, renting a car should be limited to local drives to out-of-the-way locations. Should you be driving, the AA has offices all over the world which can help one to plan suitable itineraries and driving routes. Using the right rubber Save fuel with the right tyre To really stretch the fuel dollar and get the most mileage from each tank of petrol, you should consider installing energy conserving tyres, otherwise known as tyres with low rolling resistance. Not only do these tyres save fuel, they are also designed to last longer than normal. Here are just some low rolling resistance tyres worth considering: Bridgestone Turanza GR-80 The successor to the popular Turanza GR-50, the GR-80 boasts a tread pattern that is specifically designed to suppress vibration and noise from the road surface. This tyre also uses AQ Donut II technology, which consists of a unique compound that promotes wet handling and improves durability. Michelin XM1 Apart from being a quiet and comfortable tyre, the XM1 uses Michelin's Energy Green X compound to allow it to have low rolling resistance. Michelin claims that cars fitted with this tyre will save about two litres of fuel for every 1000 kilometres travelled. Also, the XM1's generous silica content should provide first-class wet performance and excellent longevity. Pirelli P3000 Energy The P3000 Energy is a "green" tyre that is like no other. It not only promotes better fuel consumption, but Pirelli also managed to place it in the "T" speed rating (up to 190km/h) segment, which is a rarity for this kind of tyre. This incredible performance is due to the development a the newly developed tread compund and pattern. Those seeking for a tyre that is capable of providing both performance and fuel-saving benefits should give the P3000 a try. Passion for Performance On the other side of the spectrum, a long distance drive may be an excuse to really push your car to the limit. For these performance enthusiasts gripping power and high-speed stability are paramount, and fuel efficiency, longevity and noise are secondary. Bridgestone Potenza S-03 Pole Position Jam-packed with Bridgestone's technical know-how from their Formula One racing experience, their flagship Potenza S-03 is one of the top players in the ultra-high performance tyre category. By applying the AQ Donut II technology, the S-03 has better straight-line stability and a consistent surface contact that enhances both wet and dry handling. Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Hoping to continue the success of the Pilot Sport, the second-generation Pilot Sport is a completely new tyre from its predecessor. It has a more rigid construction, softer compound and a reduced grooved tread pattern for better contact patch and more responsive handling. The VCP (Variable Contact Patch) system allows the rubber contact area to increase during cornering, while the asymmetric tread pattern should provide outstanding wet and dry handling. Pirelli P Zero Rosso "Zero" refers to zero limit or no limit, and the "Rosso" name is there because it symbolises the love of driving fast cars. By formulating some of the most technologically advanced ingredients for the tread compound, the P Zero Rosso is circuit-ready and should also provide excellent performance in the wet also. Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini are some of the manufacturers that equip their cars with the P Zero Rosso from the factory. If you can afford it . . . For drivers who are willing to invest a bit more money, a long distance trip might be a good excuse to install the following equipment: Ttinted window film For long drives, the full-strength of the equatorial sun beating down on a car can turn its interior into a green house. The installation of a window film can help to significantly reduce the heat penetration into the passenger compartment and reduce the glare of the sun. As the airconditioning has less work to do to cool the car down, there could be a fuel savings of about 3% on fuel. Note: Ensure the film you purchase is accepted by the LTA's Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board (SPRING). Legally, the light transmission for the front windescreen and two passenger windows must be at least 70% and the rear windscreen and passenger windows must be at least 50%. Automatic fire extinguisher An automatic fire extinguisher containing a fire suppression agent can be installed directly around the engine. If and when a fire occurs, a pressurised canister of halotron gas will be released, absorbing the surrounding oxygen and extinguishing the flame. The extinguisher system is completely self-contained and requires no external wiring or electrical supply. In-Car Entertainment Passengers - especially children - easily get restless when in the car for an extended period of time. You might want to consider installing an in-car entertainment system that can play DVDs and VCDs in addition to conventional CDs and radio. There are many of these kinds of systems to choose from now, such as the Blaupunkt IVDM-7002 with its built-in 7-inch screen to save you the hassle and additional expense of separate monitors. What do all those signs mean . . . Malaysian road signs aren't all in convenient English - many are written in Bahasa Melayu. DOn't drive ignorantly into danger. Stay safe by learning what these signs mean - take this guide on your holiday trip with you. THANKS TO AA

    Road near Genting Highland caves in

    KUANTAN: Part of the main road leading to an educational institution near Genting Highlands collapsed early on Friday morning (Apr 6). A 30-metre-deep sunken surface was discovered by a security guard at Aminuddin Baki Institute at around 1.30am. “Electricity in the area has been temporarily disconnected because power cables in the affected area were affected by the collapse,” said Bentong Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM) officer Lieutenant Mohd Zulkhairi Adek, He said no one was injured, adding that the road caved in during normal weather. The Pahang Fire and Rescue Department is investigating if there were burst underground pipes in the area. Meanwhile, the department's deputy director Mohd Sani Harul said the road along the affected stretch has been closed to traffic until further notice.
  20. I entered Johor thru Tanjong Kupang on 13 Feb, i remembered I did tap my TnG card at the immigration booth. But when I check my TnG card account now, there is no RM20 transaction, though all the toll charges for that day was reflected in my account. So is the road charge still in effect or just waived for CNY period ? Anyone notice the same?

    Irresponsible Parent.

    what kind of parent is this?! Mother herself a lecturer and yet she is so irresponsible that she neglect the importance of Childcare Leaving her 2 year-old child in a car unattended. ============================================================================== Two-year-old girl in Malaysia dies after being left inside car for four hours PORT DICKSON - A two-year-old girl died after she was left inside a car by her mother. She was believed to have succumbed to heatstroke. Hasmah Masroh, 32, found her daughter, Nur Awfa Humaisha' Muhammad Ali Riduan, unconscious after she realised that she was still in the car at the Port Dickson Vocational College here. Port Dickson OCPD Supt Zainduin Ahmad said preliminary investigations revealed that the mother, who is a lecturer at the college, left the toddler in the car at the college's parking lot for four hours. "She only realised that her child was still in the car at around 1pm. When she rushed to the vehicle, the victim was already unconscious," he said. The mother then rushed her daughter to the Port Dickson health clinic but the victim was pronounced dead a short while later. Supt Zainudin said a post mortem would be conducted on the child to establish the cause of death. No arrests have been made. The case, he said, was being investigated under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act for child abuse. Offenders can be jailed up to 10 years and fined not more than RM20,000 (S$6,700) upon conviction. http://www.asiaone.com/malaysia/two-year-old-girl-malaysia-dies-after-being-left-inside-car-four-hours?xtor=EREC-16-4[Emarsys_Newsletter]-20180315&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77

  24. hi Does this new rule affect Singapore registered Cars with LTA approved window tints ? --------------------------------------------------------------------------- https://www.todayonline.com/world/foreign-vehicles-dark-window-tints-cannot-enter-malaysia KUALA LUMPUR — Foreign vehicles with dark window tints will not be allowed to enter Malaysia. Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said the Road Transport Department (RTD) will be instructed to carry out the directive as dark window tints were a clear danger. This is in response to concerns that the foreign vehicles entering the country might bring in drug traffickers and Islamic State militant group. “RTD will take immediate action in barring foreign vehicles with dark window tints from entering Malaysia.“Those entering Malaysia will have to remove the dark window tint of their vehicles,” he told the Dewan Negara today in reply to Senator Abdullah Mat Yassin. The issue of car-window tinting, mainly to reduce glare and help control the temperature inside the vehicle - has been divisive for many years. Malaysian motorists who tint their car windows and screen must adhere to Rule 5(1) and Rule 5(3) Motor Vehicles (Prohibition of Certain Glasses) Amendment 2000 - a law that has been widely ignored. The permissible tint levels are a minimum of 70 per cent visible light transmission levels for the front windscreen and 50 per cent for other windows.
  25. Malaysia ranked safest among 19 nations Posted on 26 June 2012 - 06:39pm Last updated on 26 June 2012 - 07:47pm JOHOR BAHARU (June 26, 2012): Malaysia is ranked the safest of 19 upper-middle income nations in the world, according to the World Justice Project's Rule of Law Index 2011 report. Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Radzi said Malaysia was also deemed the 12th safest country, faring better than the United States and Britain. "The GTP (Government Transformation Programme) and Crime Reduction NKRA (National Key Result Areas) have received international recognition, for example. "The Global Peace Index has placed Malaysia as the safest and peaceful country in South-East Asia, and fourth in the Asia Pacific," he said in a speech when closing a current safety issues briefing here today. His speech text was read by the ministry's (registration and immigration division) deputy secretary-general Datuk Wan Ali Besar. He said a study carried out by the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) found that the public were less fearful when caught in a crime situation last year, due to measures undertaken by the government, as compared to 2010. "Many may wonder what effect this has on the country. An example would be that Malaysia's foreign direct investment standing was recorded at 10th position last year, as compared to 21st in 2010. "This is proof of confidence among foreign investors over our country's political climate, safety and stability," he said, adding that it indicated the ministry's plans to reduce crime was successful. – Bernama http://www.thesundaily.my/news/417537
