This is located at the junction of Jalan Dato Ismail Hashim, postcode 11900, Penang.
By the way, this traffic light has been replaced many times in a year due to careless drivers who took reckless cornering stunts.
First, we need to replace the traffic lights and some one from the traffic section must study how such incident can be eliminated. I believe the traffic lights cost a lot too, well, it is also our money right?

After going around the other day looking for the best little garden, the result was very obvious. The best little garden award within Pearl Garden goes to Block A. The garden is located near the motorcycle parking area.
Neat and tidy. So many types of greens and the plants are so fertile, the owner really put a lot of effort and time.

It is a eye sore to have such a patch unattended private garden where everyone is passing by. By looking at the density of the weeds, I believe no one is looking after it. Today, I will going around with my camera looking for the greenest fingers among our residents. Of course, this is not a competition, but knowing the best little garden among our community would be inspiring for others.

A friend, Ong Saw Ling emailed me this youtube video clip and I felt that it is worth sharing with all.
This is a story of a father who ran a difficult obstacle course with his handicapped son, and a task so difficult, yet he crossed the finish line with such a big heart, all he wanted was to fulfill his son's dream to run together in such a course. It is tear jerking.....
It has been awhile since I tag along my minister of finance (my wife) to the supermarket. And this evening we took the liberty to find ourselves in Sunshine, Bayan Baru. I always knew that Sunshine Bayan Baru has really fresh fruits and the best price when compared to Tesco or Giant and some say better than Jusco too. But this evening, it is about to change my preception.
As you can see in the photo above, there was a basket of partly rotten mangoes going for full price of RM 6.90 / kg. Are they nuts?
And the price of other fruits have such high price tags too. An average of 20% higher than before. I am not sure what is going on, but can some one tell me why is food price increasing?
The petrol price has gone down, but still the "chap fan" (economy rice) auntie is charging me like RM 5.00 for 2 vege and 1 tofu meal. When asked why she said, "The vege price went up lah!".
If you go to a kopi tiam, a "teh peng" will cost you RM 1.10 ~ 1.20 a glass and mind you it also has a different funny taste to it, not sure if there was too little tea or something else. Somehow, it taste funny. The best part is the amount of ice in your drink!!!! "Chia lat !"
So, with the food price increasing for no apparent reason and the increasing people out of job (110,000 people as report in the news this evening), how do you think we will all turn out?

I took this video clip about a year ago when I was taking one of my Swiss guests around town. To tell the truth, I was pretty scared watching the parang kung fu sifu slicing away the coconut husk.

There are 3 steps you should take:
1. Make a friendly approach to the neighbour - Point out the problem, but think about how you would like to be approached. If you're not confident enough, you can always get a friend or family member to do this on your behalf. It is common the neighbour won't realise they are disturbing you.
2. Mediation - If a friendly chat doesn't work, try involving a 3rd party to listen to both sides of the story and to help reach an agreement.
3. Formal action - To be undertaken where informal action fails or is not possible. You can contact your local authority that will send an environmental health officer to investigate the noise, and if they are satisfied the noise is a nuisance they will take action. If the noise is intermittent they are likely to ask you to take records of the noise occurrences. They may also leave equipment in your house to measure the noise levels. If other neighbours were disturbed they could also provide useful evidence.
KUALA LUMPUR: At least 15,000 locals have had their jobs “certified safe” – thanks to a turn of events in Japan.
Sony Corp in Tokyo, hard hit by the global crunch, has decided to downsize and move part of its operations here to save costs.
Japanese Ambassador to Malaysia Masahiko Horie (pic) said that with this development, up to 15,000 Sony em- ployees in the company’s four plants in Malaysia could keep their jobs.
The envoy said Sony EMCS (M) Sdn Bhd managing director Satoshi Okawa relayed the good news to him at a recent briefing.
“Besides cutting costs, Sony Japan’s shift here is also in recognition of the excellent infrastructure and facilities available in Malaysia.
Horie said Japan was pleased with the progress and advancement achieved by Sony in Malaysia.
“Malaysian personnel trained at Sony’s plants here have been posted around the world to take up managerial and other key posts, and have been playing a very important role.
“Their skill level is very high and this is another reason why Sony Japan picked Malaysia to move part of its operations.”
