  5. i always parked my car at the T1,T2,T3 for a few days if go for short trip. Lucky, never have a chance to park at Budget Terminal. Very heng. more expensive than MBS ============================ User-unfriendly manipulation of parking fees at Budget Terminal Published on Jan 30, 2012 I HAD to take a round-trip flight to Kuala Lumpur early this month. I departed on a Friday at noon and returned the next day in the evening. As it was a short trip, I decided to drive and park at the Budget Terminal's open-air carpark. Having checked in online, I arrived at the carpark an hour before the flight and was shocked to see a small notice on the carpark barriers, indicating overnight charges in excess of $50 and a recommendation to use the Terminal 2 carpark, which would cost only $20. As I was not sure I had enough time to drive to Terminal 2, park there and find a shuttle or taxi service back to the Budget Terminal to catch my flight, I decided to stay put and parked at the Budget Terminal carpark. When I returned, I was charged an appalling $82.40 for 34 hours; in fact, the parking fee was costlier than the air tickets. Why does an open-air carpark at the Budget Terminal cost more than a covered parking space in Terminal 2's multi-storey carpark? Why aren't airport users alerted to the stark difference much earlier and in a better way instead of as a last-minute warning at the carpark barriers? Why is there no advice about how long it takes to get to and from Terminal 2 and the frequency of shuttle buses? The airport's feedback service replied that with the increased overnight charges, there are more spaces for short-term parking. But this is achieved at a cost - the inconvenience of passengers who have to park at a different terminal. The airport authorities should charge similar rates at all terminals and, at the same time, put up LED panels indicating the availability of parking spaces at all terminals along the approach road to the airport. This will allow motorists to decide early and park where spaces are available. The current clumsy manipulation of parking rates suggests that the authorities underestimated the popularity of budget travel. Ron Graham ============================== $300 fee 'Parking overnight at the Budget Terminal is shockingly more expensive.' MS AMANDA GOH: 'I had an experience similar to Mr Ron Graham's at the Budget Terminal carpark ('User-unfriendly manipulation of parking fees at Budget Terminal'; Monday). Late last year, I took a last-minute trip on a flight departing from the Budget Terminal. As I was rushing to the terminal to purchase the plane tickets and board the aircraft, I parked at the Budget Terminal carpark. In my haste, I missed the small sign stating the parking rates. When I returned, I was shocked by the $300 charge for parking for 41/2 days. The carpark staff pointed to the notices about the fees on the entry barriers and in a few other places. But these are at inconspicuous spots. More can be done to inform the public that parking overnight at the Budget Terminal is not only different from parking at the other terminals, but also shockingly more expensive.' =================================== Address airport parking fee anomaly Published on Feb 1, 2012 MY HUSBAND and I had an experience similar to Mr Ron Graham's last week ('User-unfriendly manipulation of parking fees at Budget Terminal'; Monday). How can outdoor parking at a budget terminal be more expensive than at the other terminals? I hope the airport authorities will make a change. Amanda Chan (Ms) ===================================== Higher airport parking fees help to ease crunch CHANGI Airport's Terminals 1, 2 and 3 are well connected by the Skytrain system, with a train arriving at stations every two to three minutes ('User-unfriendly manipulation of parking fees at Budget Terminal' by Mr Ron Graham; Monday). Mr Graham criticised the exorbitant parking charges at the Budget Terminal carpark. No motorist wants to pay hefty parking charges, but an operator must find a solution when faced with overcrowding. In this case, the airport decided that increasing the overnight parking charges could help ease the situation, and installed signage on the change. Mr Graham asked why airport users were not alerted to the difference in parking charges. Apart from having signs at the carpark entrances, how else can this be done without incurring excessive cost? The management of Changi Airport is excellent in many ways, which is why the airport has won many awards. Sam Yeow

  10. Hi brudders, did some sums on my FC today while filling up. Took the reading from the odometer and subtracted the previous one taken. .. Divide this figure by the the number shown on the petrol pump (amount of petrol topped up to full tank) and it was 122/17.8 = 6.85km/l. Shocking!! Is this the way to calculate FC? Time to chuck the spare tyre.

    This is a real story of a young college girl who passed away last month in Pasir Ris. Her name was Rui Ping. She was hit by a truck. She was working in a call center. She had a boy friend named Peter. Both of them were true lovers. They always talked on the phone. You would never find her without handphone. In fact she also changed her cell connection from Starhub to Singtel, so that both of them can be on the same network, and save on the cost. She used to spend half of the day talking with Peter.

  16. Malaysia cuts fuel price by 6.1%Posted: 14 October 2008 1931 hrs Photos 1 of 1 KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia Wednesday cut petrol prices by 6.1 percent amid a fall in world oil prices. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the price of petrol would be cut by 15 sen to 2.30 ringgit (0.92 dollars) a litre while diesel prices would fall by 20 sen to 2.20 ringgit effective Wednesday. It is the third time the government has cut fuel prices since a 41 percent hike in June on the back of soaring crude costs -- a 3.9 percent cut was introduced last month. The massive rise in June sparked angry street protests and calls for Abdullah to quit. The prime minister later said prices would be reviewed periodically based on the cost of oil. "Because oil prices have fallen sharply in recent times, the government has decided to cut fuel prices to allow the masses to benefit (from) lower prices," Abdullah said in a statement June's hike saw inflation skyrocket, with the August price index reaching a 26-year high of 8.5 percent, driven by the escalating cost of food and fuel. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is mounting an aggressive challenge against Abdullah's leadership, has promised to cut fuel prices substantially if he wrests power from the ruling coalition.

  19. Hey guys, My family's cefiro and latio , for the fc , has gone tremendously down. The figure does not sound nice and it is so out of the world. For the latio, the figure has been dropping for about a month already. Our usual is around 12.5 to 13. Sometimes even 13.5 . but now.. it has been slowly dropping to 12, then 11.8 and the last tank we fiilled, 10.2!!! frweaking low and my fathers driving habit hasnt changed. For the cefiro, ever since my father installed RMK vol stab, fc has been constantly at 8.5 and even sometimes 9. But now, it has dropped also, from 8.5 to 8.2, then slowly down to the latest tank we filled, which was 6.8 . which was back to the pre RMK days, Can someone advice? the fuel figs are terrible. The only change is both cars went for servicing and changed air filter, oil filter and changed a new bout of syn oil. 5 litres. Is that a cause? Pls advice or we r really gonna call TCM alr. HAHA.. Thanks bros.
