    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.

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

  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. I am writing phone apps for myself in case my car gets stolen in Singapore/Malaysia, I am asking for opinion if it is worth doing it at all. HOW IT WORKS: - I hide an Android phone in my car that tracks the car's location (GPS). The phone can be any old and obsolete Android phone that is worth close to nothing. The phone is installed with an app (I develop) that runs non-stop in the background. - If the car is stolen, I use my regular phone to view my car's location graphically on a map. This phone is installed with an app (I develop) that hides all complexity from the user, but technically it sends an SMS to the car phone and the car phone responds with its location in SMS. The app decodes the SMS and drop-pin on an offline map. WHAT ARE ALREADY AVAILABLE: - There are low cost GPS trackers but they are on 2G networks that won't exist soon. - 3G trackers are expensive. - Commercial car trackers are available and most require subscription. - Most trackers use mobile data. MY METHOD: - Reuse old/obsolete phones that are lying around, so I don't buy anything. - Use SMS to communicate so phones don't need overseas mobile data. SMS in Malaysia doesn't cost much and we use only when car gets stolen. - My regular phone uses offline maps, no need to access online map such as Google map, so again no need mobile data. What are you using to track your car ? If I decide to develop the apps, I might give it away free to commenters here.

  12. 1999 ban on raw pork from Malaysia lifted Raw pork from Malaysia is back in markets here, marking the end of an import ban on the product for more than a decade. The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) recently approved the import of frozen pork from one slaughterhouse in Sarawak. The first consignment arrived here in February and, as of last month, about 9 tonnes of frozen pork products have been imported from there. The ban on the import of live pigs and raw pork from Malaysian was introduced in 1999, after an outbreak of the Nipah virus. The virus, which is carried by pigs, killed 100 Malaysian pig farmers and an abattoir worker here. A spokesman for AVA said Sarawak's state animal and veterinary public health programmes were assessed, and inspections were conducted at the pig farming area and slaughterhouse to ensure that their bio-security control measures and hygiene standards meet AVA's requirements. "During our inspections, areas of improvement were highlighted, which the slaughterhouse rectified accordingly," she said. A trial sample batch was also tested at AVA's Veterinary Public Health Laboratory and met food-safety requirements. Austria was also approved as a new source of pork last year and, as of last month, about 175 tonnes of frozen pork from Austria have been exported to Singapore. In April last year, Singapore imported its first batch of beef products from Britain since 1996, after AVA lifted its ban on deboned beef from Britain in September 2013. Over the last year, around 2.5 tonnes of chilled or frozen beef products have been imported from 15 slaughterhouses. The ban had been placed on British beef imports due to the threat of mad cow disease. At that point, Singapore was importing about 15 tonnes of beef from Britain, which made up about 0.12 per cent of overall beef imports. AVA has since found the situation in Britain to be "well-controlled" and the threat of the disease "negligible". It added that, as a precaution, it allows the import of only deboned beef from cattle under 30 months of age as they have less nervous tissue, which reduces their risk of contracting the disease. The spokesman said the agency will monitor all consignments and take the necessary action when there are food-safety lapses. It will also continue to diversity its food sources. "By buying from diverse sources, we are better buffered against potential short-term supply disruptions from any one source," she said. samboh@sph.com.sg Buzzing in and around Singapore - See more at: http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/1999-ban-raw-pork-malaysia-lifted#sthash.NeZwv7nx.dpuf

    Beautiful Wall Murals Of Penang Malaysia

    Penang Heritage City - a fitting title bestowed to this fair island. It is now part of UNESCO's World Heritage Cities Program. I know that most of us associate Penang with the beaches, the iconic Penang Bridge and its glorious food. However, the capital city, George Town, has the most number of pre-war buildings in all of South East Asia which are still intact. That is why, the island is known as Penang Heritage City. The place is so rich with history. Since Francis Light drew out the plan of the city, it had born witness to the rise and fall of governments and ruling parties. The city was coveted by many as a strategic and natural port. It was also the guardian to the northern entrance of the Straits of Malacca. Discover the beautiful Wall Murals Of Penang Malaysia, film along the Armenian Street. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfPtqIs1_Uc

  17. Given the cutting of vehicle growth rate to zero, should there be more restrictions on Malaysia vehicles entering Singapore? Maybe I am biased, but I am seeing more and more Malaysia plated vehicles nowadays. Not just long-haul trucks, but many vans, etc. Pickup-trucks carrying a trunk full of ladders, etc, going at 100km/h on first lane. Obviously not here for "social visit" !!! As the cost of operating a vehicle in Singapore goes up, it will be more competitive for Malaysia vehicles to operate here. Obviously it is a violation of visa policy for Malaysians to undertake commercial activities here with only a visitor visa, but these rules are unenforceable. It might be the case that any particular Malaysia vehicle cannot stay here for too long. However, if you look at the entire vehicle population in Singapore, then at any point in time, my estimate is that a significant proportion of vehicles on the roads are from Malaysia. If we could eliminate these vehicles, this will mean more COE available for Singapore cars !!! Another thing is those Malaysia long-haul trucks, spewing massive plumes of thick black smoke. They should be forced to unload at the customs and transfer their cargo to local trucks !
  18. STOMPer Nelson came across a Singapore-registered car in Malaysia which he says, has been left unattended for about three months. The STOMPer hopes the photo will help the owner locate his or her car. Said the STOMPer: "This picture was taken in Selangor, Malaysia (the Puchong area near Bandar Puteri), about 10 minutes' drive from Sunway Lagoon Resort. "I have seen this Singapore-registered vehicle being parked at this place for almost 2 to 3 months, unattended. "I think this picture might help the owner of this vehicle locate his or her car." Should you have any information regarding the owner of this vehicle, please contact STOMP at stomp@stomp.com.sg

  21. Just thinking out loud. Malaysia is assembling many local BMW/Mercs. Not sure is the selling pricing 'cheap' or not, but sure can have special arrangement right? Also the shipping cost will likely be low, compared to shipping it from Japan/UK. Possible to get cheap PI cars from Malaysia? Why not?

    Bolehland Polis : Gangster berlesen

    from Yahoo news : After recorded slapping migrants, cop shifted to desk job GEORGE TOWN, Dec 16 — A Penang-based policeman shown in a video clip slapping a foreigner that went viral on social media sites recently has been put on desk duty pending investigations into the case, state police chief Datuk Abd Rahim Hanafi said today. The unnamed policeman, who was formerly based in the Bayan Baru police station, was immediately transferred to the Balik Pulau operations centre after the video clip was uploaded on to YouTube on December 13. “We are investigating this case now and we will not compromise when it comes to any of our officers who commit any offense or smear the image of the police force,” Abd Rahim said in a official statement. “I have issued an order to all department heads, district police chiefs and formation chiefs to ensure all officers under them to always fulfil their duties in accordance to the law,” he added. Abd Rahim had also warned the police force in Penang to toe the line or face the consequences of their indiscipline. “Do not even once act against of the law or do anything that can smear the image of the police force as this will not be tolerated at all,” he said. The Penang police chief’s statement today came in the wake of a torrent of comments after the video clip spread. It has been shared over 2,000 times on Facebook after showing up yesterday on a popular local online forum called JBTalks. The one minute-and-six-second video clip, which appears to have been recorded on a smartphone, shows a policeman slapping and scolding three men who appear to be foreigners in a public area in Bayan Baru. The policeman was at first seen to be ordering two of the three men to squat down beside a the third who was already in a squatting position on the ground. The policeman proceeded to scold one of the men and slapped the latter repeatedly while asking him in Malay, “You mau kurang ajar dengan saya [You want to be disrespectful to me]”. The video ends abruptly when the policeman turns around and faces the anonymous cameraman, who appears to have captured the incident from across the street. The clip has attracted more than 127 comments on Facebook, most of which criticised the policeman for his actions. “Gangster berlesen” (licensed gangster) one Facebook user, KS Sim, commented while another user, Yu Min, said he “felt so sad for the police — kurang ajar scolding kurang ajar HAHAHAHA LMFAO”. Many other commenters simply used the slogan “Malaysia Boleh” [Malaysia Can] in a sarcastic manner, pointing out that such incidences frequently took place in Malaysia. link: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/recorded-slapping-migrants-cop-shifted-desk-job-094400430.html (sorry don't know how to upload the video here, can someone help before its gone) If more like him, less illegal immigrants in bolehland and even less crimes.....
  23. I heard from the news that the Malaysia Government increased the petrol price of RON97 to RM2.40, up by RM0.10 from this morning. Anyone went to pump petrol today?
  24. Saw a convoy of M'sian plate cars along BKE towards PIE this morning. The convoy leader is a Mercs S400 with plate JNW1. The 2nd and 3rd car in the convoy are Roll Royce with no number plates. The 4th and 5th car are M'sia civilian cars with the sticker bearing words "Polis" on its rear bumper. Behind the convoy is an unmarked WRX Singapore plate, likely the Singapore Police? The best part is when the convoy approached BKE speed trap near Bukit Panjang exit, they slowed down. I thought they can just choing through it? haha. Tiagong Johor Sultan not known to be a good boy anyway.
