  8. My TnG card will be entering into an "inactive" status tomorrow on 24th June since last road trip. As we are in unprecedented times with restricted travel and there's no way I can enter MY now, I tried to resuscitate my looming "inactive" TnG card again. Digging into their 27 pages of FAQ encyclopedia, under section 2.8 Dormant Card, subsection 2.8.1, it states that "Card linked to Touch 'n Go eWallet (PayDirect function) will not become Dormant and Dormant Fee is not applicable....." I proceeded to register my card with eWallet and to play it safe, topped up a grand RM10.00 into it. Not sure if my interpretation is correct wrt to Bolehland's England, my understanding is, now my TnG card is forever active until expiry, i.e. no need to use/top up every 12 months without incurring inactive fee??? I hope that when it is safe to travel again, my TnG card will not become "inactive" thereby causing a traffic snarl at the checkpoint or their TnG prata did not flip by then. LOL

  10. KL-Singapore High Speed Rail terminated after both countries fail to reach agreement on M'sia's proposed changes to project source: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/politics/kl-singapore-high-speed-rail-terminated-after-singapore-and-malaysia-fail-to SINGAPORE - The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project has been terminated, after both countries failed to reach an agreement on changes proposed by Malaysia by the deadline of Dec 31. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Muhyiddin Yassin announced this in a joint statement on Friday (Jan 1) morning. The statement said the Malaysian Government had proposed several changes to the HSR project in the light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Malaysian economy. "Both Governments had conducted several discussions with regard to these changes and had not been able to reach an agreement. Therefore, the HSR Agreement had lapsed on 31 December 2020." The statement said both countries will abide by their respective obligations, and will now proceed with the necessary actions, resulting from the termination of the HSR Agreement. Singapore's Ministry of Transport, in a separate statement, said Malaysia had allowed the HSR bilateral agreement to be terminated, and has to compensate Singapore for costs already incurred, in accordance with the agreement. The joint statement added: "Both countries remain committed to maintain good bilateral relations, and cooperate closely in various fields, including strengthening the connectivity between the two countries." PM Lee and Mr Muhyiddin had held talks on the twice-delayed bilateral project via video conference on Dec 2, after Malaysia earlier proposed some changes. Both sides then said they would announce further details on the HSR Project through a joint statement in due course. But the writing had been on the wall, following several Malaysian news reports that quoted unnamed sources saying the Malaysian Cabinet was planning to continue the project without Singapore's involvement and end the line in Johor. The 350km rail line, which both sides agreed to build in 2013, was to have run from a terminal station in Bandar Malaysia in downtown Kuala Lumpur to a terminal in Jurong East. The HSR was slated to have seven stations, and would have cut travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to 90 minutes, compared with over four hours by car and about five hours end-to-end by air. Both countries signed a legally bilateral agreement on the project in Putrajaya in December 2016, witnessed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and then Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. Singapore commenced work on the project, including appointing a firm to design its HSR infrastructure and later calling an international joint tender with Malaysia for an assets company. The project was later suspended at the request of Malaysia, after a change in the Malaysian government following the May 2018 general election. The initial two-year extension in September 2018, which was to have ended in May 2020, was extended for a second and final time till Dec 31.
  11. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.
  12. Cracked screen protector almost causes Malaysia man to amputate thumb https://www.asiaone.com/malaysia/cracked-screen-protector-almost-causes-malaysia-man-amputate-thumb Most of us are guilty of using cracked phones and screen protectors until they are absolutely falling apart. But be warned — even if you don't get cut, you could still get a nasty infection. A man in Malaysia had to be hospitalised and almost lost his thumb after playing games on his smartphone despite a cracked screen protector, according to newspaper Harian Metro. Azuan Iqbal Abdullah Sani, 23, said that he had been using the cracked screen protector for four months. His first inkling that something was wrong was when he noticed that his right thumb was swollen and had some black spots about three weeks ago. Azuan visited a doctor who diagnosed him with a bacterial infection and prescribed antibiotics and painkillers. However, his thumb continued to swell and the pain only worsened even though there was no visible wound. After visiting a private hospital, Azuan was told that he had to undergo surgery to save his thumb from being amputated. Azuan underwent surgery to remove the glass shards embedded in his thumb as well as the infected flesh, reported another newspaper Sin Chew Daily. "It was shocking to know that my finger would have to be amputated if I had delayed treatment," Azuan told Harian Metro in Malay. "It is my fault that this happened since it is easy to replace the screen protector. I hope that others will immediately replace their cracked screen protectors so that they don't become like me," Azuan said. He has been discharged from the hospital and is recovering. Let Azuan's story be a cautionary tale to all of us to fix our cracked screens and replace our cracked screen protectors. Smartphones are already causing health issues like "skull horns" and "text neck". Let's not add "deadly bacterial infection" to the list. kimberlylim@asiaone.com
  13. Now this is one heartening sight! Our local police force is working hard to catch bad-behaving vehicles on our roads! Seen on SG Road Vigilante is this video of an unmarked Traffic Police vehicle zooming up fast on the AYE towards Tuas to catch a motorbike on 13th of December 2020. We can't really see why the bike was being stopped but according to the source, it is a Malaysian-registered bike with a mini rear number plate. While having such a number plate is an offence in our sunny island, we thought the police might also be catching the biker for a speeding offence or having a loud exhaust. As for the rest of us, we now know when you see a white Mazda 3, it might not be a Private Hire Vehicle but an Unmarked Traffic Police car!
  14. Opposition members of parliament (MPs) walked out of Malaysia's Dewan Rakyat on Dec. 14, protesting the presence of three lawmakers who were meant to be under home quarantine. According to Malaysiakini, the trio — made up of Health Minister Adham Baba and Human Resources Minister M Saravanan as well as MP P Prabakaran from the opposition — appeared in full personal protective equipment (PPE). They had been quarantined after being exposed to a Covid-19 patient. “What reasons are there for these MPs to be allowed to be present in Parliament when they have been categorised as close contacts (of Covid-19 positive cases)?” opposition MP Xavier Jayakumar asked Dewan Rakyat Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun, according to the Malaymail. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim also sought an explanation from the speaker Malaysiakini reported that Azhar responded by saying he was simply following Covid-19 procedures set by the Health Ministry. According to the Malaymail, Azhar said that he had allowed the quarantined MPs to attend as an opposition MP had previously broken quarantine in similar circumstances. However, this did not placate the opposition MPs, the majority of whom from the PKR and DAP parties, and walked out while MPs from the government bench jeered them. https://mothership.sg/2020/12/dewan-rakyat-walkout/ Tit for tat monkey see monkey do. you can why i cannot? lol...
  15. Car Paint Coating Scam In Malaysia Continues source: https://www.dsf.my/2020/11/car-paint-coating-scam-in-malaysia-continues/ In recent months we have seen a number of Malaysian car lovers complaining about the quality of their paint protection system from various providers, not all. Well, it takes at least 18-24 months to realize you have been ‘played’ by some of these well groomed sales people who promise you mirror-like paint finish, paint sparkle that you can comb your hair with and a shine that will dazzle other road users. Price Charged With prices advertised online from as low as RM99.00 to a high RM1,799.00, the game is to get you drive in and then they get working on your inner ego to help you part with your money and allow them to apply some cheap useless product that might actually ‘kill’ your factory clear coat which is providing that shine you require for years of ownership. Why does it take time for you to realize a bad product application? Well, most of these business owners will provide a 2-5-year warranty depending on how much you have paid. Then when you realize your paint coating is looking dull, colored and smudged, you visit them for a touch-up. This is when you find out ‘how good’ their product really is. Many would have closed their shop after a couple of years and the warranty document is as valuable as toilet paper. If you still want to use a paint coating system on your car then always look for a paint coating company that has been around for more than 5 to 6 years and check the comments of their customers/users online to confirm if they are doing an honest application. KOL Gets Played Just a few days ago, a prominent Chinese language motoring website editor and ‘key opinion leader’ (KOL) complained on Facebook about a paint coating company that had worked on his brand new Honda Civic Type R about 18 months ago and just days ago he had gone in to the company to claim a touch-up on his 5-year warranty and came away with ‘uncoated’ spots as he stated on Facebook (FB). His posting on FB also brought out other unhappy clients who used the same company to share their dissatisfaction with the paint coating company and it can be clearly seen that this car coating company has been providing sub-standard workmanship and maybe even product for some time now. Is this a staff issue, outlet issue, branch issue or product issue? Keeping It Clean There are a lot of ways you can keep your car looking clean and shiny all year round. The most common method is to wash and clean your car daily. This takes time and money, but it also means you are gently scratching you paint top gloss coat finish each and every time you mistakenly allow a cloth with light dirt trapped in it to glide along the surface of your car when drying the car and even when wiping away standing water and dirt. Then there the infamous corner car wash near your home. Yes, the most common way to wash a car is to visit the corner car wash where they use water that might come from rain gutters and they use wash and wipe cloths that never get washed properly. Finally, there is the automated car wash. The drive thru quick fix car wash. The ‘soft’ brushes that ‘gently’ clean your car are usually old and never replaced and this alone leaves your body ‘tortured’ each and every drive thru. Trusted Outlet So, if you still want to use a paint coating system, take a visit online and check the customer response for Shine & Shield at No.47, Jalan PJS 11/22, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Subang Jaya, Selangor. You can call the owner Raymond Tan at 03-5635 9933 to find out more. We have been using their services for over 10 years now and have had no issues. Also we have recommended many friend and relatives and there has been no complaints even after their 5-year warranty ends. Yes, they offer a solid 5-year warranty on their work.
  16. Hello, I'm posting a new topic to ask questions as I can't find any information about this in this forum. Hope I'm posting it in the right place. I am planning a road trip to Malaysia with extended family. There will be 7 of us. My car, being a sedan, can only take 5 at most. 7 includes 4 adults and 3 kids - for the 3 kids present, need one infant child seat (less than a year old), one toddler's child seat (2+ years old), and one full sized child seat for a 5 year old. So quite obviously I need something substantially bigger than my Sonata. So I am looking for a cost effective way to take a road trip up north - hence looking to rent a large MPV. I have in the mind the MY Hyundai Starex which I rented from Hertz MY a long time ago. In that occasion, it was rented from KLIA cos my sister's family took a flight into MY. This time, I intend to start from home here in SG. I see many of these MY Hyundai Starex coming into SG to pick up passengers into JB for day trips. Just wanted to ask if anyone here has tried something like that. I intend to rent the car for two weeks in MY. I need the car to come out to SG to pick up my family plus fit all the child seats and return us to SG. Looking to do Melaka, Ipoh, Cameron Highlands, KL & Penang. I have done this before in my own car. Any price/charges indication would be quite helpful. Also any other considerations? Insurance, legal matters, accident claims, and word of advice? I have driven the car before (the 2011 model) in the previous trip where I picked up the car at KLIA. I have also looked at some advertisements for such car rentals in Carousell. Not sure if anyone has used them before and have any experience to share? One such advertisement rent the car for S$135 for weekday, and S$145 for weekends, plus S$110 for one way shuttle to pick up from SG. Thank you very much!
  17. Respect. someone really dare to check their PM's personal bank account! http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10130211234592774869404581083700187014570 Prime Minister Najib’s bank accounts are scrutinized in probe of investment fund 1MDB. By Tom Wright And Simon Clark July 2, 2015 4:42 p.m. ET KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia—Malaysian investigators scrutinizing a controversial government investment fund have traced nearly $700 million of deposits into what investigators believe are the personal bank accounts of Malaysia’s prime minister, Najib Razak, according to documents from a government probe. The investigation documents mark the first time Mr. Najib has been directly connected to the probes into state investment fund 1Malaysia Development Bhd., or 1MDB. Mr. Najib, who founded 1MDB and heads its board of advisors, has been under growing political pressure over the fund, which amassed $11 billion in debt it is struggling to repay. The government probe documents what investigators believe to be the movement of cash among government agencies, banks and companies linked to 1MDB before it ended up in Mr. Najib’s personal accounts. Documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal include bank transfer forms and flow charts put together by government investigators that reflect their understanding of the path of the cash. The original source of the money is unclear and the government investigation doesn’t detail what happened to the money that went into Mr. Najib’s personal accounts. Advertisement “The prime minister has not taken any funds for personal use,” said a Malaysian government spokesman. “The prime minister’s political opponents, unwilling to accept his record or the facts, continue to try to undermine him with baseless smears and rumours for pure political gain.” Mr. Najib has previously denied wrongdoing in relation to 1MDB and has urged critics to wait for the conclusion of four official investigations that are ongoing into 1MDB’s activities. Investigators have identified five separate deposits into Mr. Najib’s accounts that came from two sources, according to the documents viewed by the Journal. By far the largest transactions were two deposits of $620 million and $61 million in March 2013, during a heated election campaign in Malaysia, the documents show. The cash came from a company registered in the British Virgin Islands via a Swiss bank owned by an Abu Dhabi state fund. The fund, International Petroleum Investment Co., or IPIC, has guaranteed billions of dollars of 1MDB’s bonds and in May injected $1 billion in capital into the fund to help meet looming debt repayments. A spokeswoman for IPIC couldn’t be reached for comment. The British Virgin Islands company, Tanore Finance Corp., couldn’t be reached. ENLARGE Another set of transfers, totaling 42 million ringgit ($11.1 million), originated within the Malaysian government, according to the investigation. Investigators believe the money came from an entity known as SRC International Sdn. Bhd., an energy company that originally was controlled by 1MDB but was transferred to the Finance Ministry in 2012. Mr. Najib is also the finance minister. The money moved through another company owned by SRC International and then to a company that works exclusively for 1MDB, and finally to Mr. Najib’s personal accounts in three separate deposits, the government documents show. Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, a director of SRC International, declined to comment. Mr. Kamil had power of attorney over Mr. Najib’s accounts, according to documents that were part of the government investigation. A 1MDB spokesman said, referring to the transfers into Mr. Najib’s account: “1MDB is not aware of any such transactions, nor has it seen any documents to this effect.” The spokesman cautioned that doctored documents have been used in the past to discredit 1MDB and the government. For months, concerns about 1MDB’s debt and lack of transparency have dominated political discussion in Malaysia, a close ally of the U.S. and a counterweight to China in Southeast Asia. When he founded 1MDB in 2009, Mr. Najib promised it would kick-start new industries and turn Kuala Lumpur into a global financial center. Instead, the fund bought power plants overseas and invested in energy joint ventures that failed to get off the ground. The fund this year has rescheduled debt payments. The Journal last month detailed how 1MDB had been used to indirectly help Mr. Najib’s election campaign in 2013. The fund appeared to overpay for a power plant from a Malaysian company. The company then donated money to a Najib-linked charity that made donations, including to local schools, which Mr. Najib was able to tout as he campaigned. “We only acquire assets when we are convinced that they represent long-term value, and to suggest that any of our acquisitions were driven by political considerations is simply false,” 1MDB said last month. The four probes into 1MDB are being conducted by the nation’s central bank, a parliamentary committee, the auditor general and police. A spokeswoman for Bank Negara Malaysia, the central bank, declined to comment. Malaysia’s police chief and a member of the parliamentary committee also had no comment. The auditor general said this week it had completed an interim report on 1MDB’s accounts and would hand it to the parliament on July 9. The prime minister is facing increasing pressure over 1MDB. The country’s longest-serving prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, who left office in 2003, publicly has urged Mr. Najib to resign. This week, Malaysia’s home minister threatened to withdraw publishing licenses from a local media group, citing what he said were inaccurate reports on 1MDB. The $11.1 million of transfers to Mr. Najib’s bank account occurred at the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015, according to the government investigation. Among the companies that investigators say it passed through was Ihsan Perdana Sdn. Bhd., which provides corporate social responsibility programs for 1MDB’s charitable foundation, according to company registration documents. Attempts to reach the managing director of Ihsan Perdana weren’t successful. Documents tied to the transfer said its purpose was for “CSR,” or corporate social responsibility, programs. The Wall Street Journal examination of the use of funds tied to 1MDB for Mr. Najib’s election campaign showed that the money was slated to be used for corporate social responsibility programs as well. The government probe documents detail how investigators believe SRC International transferred 40 million ringgit on Dec. 24 last year to a wholly owned subsidiary. This company on the same day wired the money to Ihsan Perdana, according to the documents. Two days after receiving the money, Ihsan Perdana wired 27 million ringgit and five million ringgit in two separate transfers to two different bank accounts owned by Mr. Najib, the government documents show. In February, 10 million ringgit entered the prime minister’s account, also from SRC International via Ihsan Perdana, the documents show. The remittance documents don’t name Mr. Najib as the beneficiary but detail account numbers at a branch of AmIslamic Bank Bhd. in Kuala Lumpur. Two flow charts from the government investigation name the owner of these accounts as “Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Bin Hj Abd Razak,” the prime minister’s official name. A spokesman for AmIslamic Bank declined to comment. In another transaction, Tanore Finance, the British Virgin Islands-based company, transferred $681 million in two tranches to a different account at another Kuala Lumpur branch of AmIslamic Bank. The government probe said the account was owned by Mr. Najib, according to the documents. The transfers came from an account held by Tanore Finance at a Singapore branch of Falcon Private Bank, a Swiss bank which is owned by IPIC, the Abu Dhabi fund, according to the documents. A spokesman for Falcon Private Bank declined to comment. The $681 million was transferred to Mr. Najib’s accounts on March 21 and March 25, 2013, the government documents show.

  18. If you have been wondering why there have been a drop in Malaysian motorbikes on our roads, here's why... According to a report from Chinese newspaper Zaobao, more than 5,000 bikes have since been transported back to Malaysia while their owners choose to stay in Singapore as the reopening of borders between Singapore and Malaysia remains unknown. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Malaysian employees that travel back and forth daily into Singapore have been affected. This number stands at an estimated 300,000 and many of these people enter our country by motorbikes while some drive in. In order to save entry permit fees and other expenses, the authorities have assisted Malaysian workers who are stuck or choose to stay in Singapore ever since the closing of borders by returning more than 5,000 motorcycles and cars to Malaysia in the past five months. A manager of one of these transport companies that provides this service has revealed that about 3,000 motorcycles have been transported across the border by them since June. At its peak, his company handled 120 bikes a day. He was quoted saying that many of these workers consider the $4 daily entry permit fee and other expenses too much to handle, choosing instead to take public transport in Singapore. Another company added on that some of the bike owners even decided to sell the motorcycles immediately after returning them to Johor. Once the transport company obtains the approval of the relevant authorities in Malaysia, it will conduct a physical screening for their driver before sending them over into Johor. To prevent the entire shipment of vehicles from being detained, the motorcycles that are being transported over must be fulled up and are checked to ensure that their license plates match the respective vehicle. It is understood that the cost of transporting a motorcycle back to Johor Bahru is between $80 to $150.

  20. https://mustsharenews.com/singaporean-bribe-quarantine/ Singaporean Company Director Entering Malaysia Under RGL Arrested After Trying To Bribe Officers Malaysia is currently grappling with a third wave of Covid-19 cases since the start of Oct. Daily new cases have set a new record high, from over 800 to yesterday’s staggering 1,228 total. Given the gravity of the crisis, health and security measures have to be strictly enforced to keep the virus under control. This rule, however, was seemingly lost on a 43-year-old Singaporean entering Malaysia recently. He offered a S$33 (RM100) bribe to Malaysian officers in hopes of skipping quarantine. According to Malaysian English daily New Straits Times, the 43-year-old Singaporean company director was entering Malaysia yesterday (24 Oct) under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) arrangement. Under this scheme, essential business and official travellers can travel between Malaysia and Singapore. The Singaporean, however, wanted to skip quarantine. He offered a Johor immigration officer a S$33 (RM100) bribe instead. At 3.50pm the same day, he was then arrested at the Johor Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) office. He will be remanded for 5 days.
  21. Singapore will import electricity from Peninsular Malaysia under a two-year trial, said the Energy Market Authority (EMA) on Monday (Oct 26). The trial aims to "assess and refine the technical and regulatory frameworks" for importing electricity into Singapore, said the authority in a press release. This would help to facilitate larger-scale imports from the region in future, added EMA. "To meet our climate change commitments, there is a need to change the way Singapore produces and uses energy," said EMA. "Tapping on regional power grids for cleaner energy resources is one strategy to further diversify Singapore’s energy supply," it added. In a keynote speech delivered at the opening of the Singapore International Energy Week, Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing said that the move is part of Singapore's plan to strengthen the "regional grid architecture". "We will kick this off by importing 100 megawatts (MW) of electricity imports for a trial period of two years, to see how the market works ... This will allow the region to share the clean energy sources that different countries may have, and we’ll start this with Malaysia," he said. "Once the concept takes off, we’ll be able to extend this to other regional players." EMA plans to issue a Request for Proposal by March next year for 100 MW of electricity imports. This will make up about 1.5 per cent of Singapore’s peak electricity demand. Under this Request for Proposal, electricity imports could begin as early as end-2021, via an existing electricity interconnector between Singapore and Malaysia. An importer will be selected through an open and competitive selection process, said EMA. "Potential importers will have to demonstrate their supply reliability, credibility and track record, ability to secure demand from Singapore consumers, and manage the carbon output of generation supply," it added.

  24. Remember the time when a video of an LTA enforcement officer that stopped an offending PMD rider by giving the rider a good kick, causing the offender to fall off his PMD? Now, something similar is going viral in Malaysia. According to The Star, the incident happened in Sibu, a town in Sarawak, Malaysia where two police officers were conducting a spot check at Jalan Temple around noon. A motorcyclist that was approaching the road block decided to turn around to avoid them but failed to do so when one of the officers acted quickly by giving the biker a martial art-style kick. In the report, Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit explained that the offender works at the a hotel nearby and has several offences to his name. Other than not having a driving license and having a modified bike, its road tax has also expired and it was not covered under any insurance too. 46687388_923477234821643_832602979362855331_n.mp4
