Wong Kok Kitchen @ Queensbay Mall, Penang

October 29, 2007

Wong Kok Kitchen has been advertising on 988 since few weeks ago through “call in” program and also story telling session. It made me hungry for their food. Actually Wong Kok is my favorite choice every time when I’m want to have a plate of Hong Kong style noodle with roasted duck, roasted chicken or roasted pork. The dumplings and “Por loh ” pow are not bad too, but the rice stuff are not as good as their noodles.

Does anybody know whether the Wong Kok outlets in KL have more variety of choices compared to Penang?

Why Traffic Instructor(s) At Traffic Lights?

October 24, 2007

I think all the children were taught on traffic lights since they were in their nursery or even younger. If we understand the functionality of the traffic lights, shouldn’t we classified it as a full proof system, based on it’s ability to ensure all motorist to cross the road or junction safely referring on the indication provided and to assist in regulating the traffic flow to ensure smoothness.

So, supposingly if the traffic lights timer were set accordingly (longer time allocated for the specific direction based on the traffic flow), it should be able to reduce the long queue at the junction, right? Then, why do we still need traffic instructor(s) to be on duty at the traffic light locations?

I always face the same situation everyday, when I’m on my way to work. Just for your information, it normally takes about 10 to 15 minutes to reach my working place. However, it will take me about an hour to arrive at my working place WHENEVER there is a traffic police interfering/ directing the traffic. The direction towards the factory from my place is the one with the heaviest traffic flow, but the instructor(s) always allow the other directions to pass by the junction without consider the long queue (2km, I guess) that we are facing. Why? They create unnecessary terrible traffic jam instead of running their duties to reduce the heavy traffic! Wasting people’s time only. Let’s say it takes 30 minutes from each person, and estimated there are minimum of 200 people involved, calculation shows that at minimum, total of 6,000 minutes = 100 hours = 4 days are wasted. Hah, unbelievable! Our precious time just wasted because of the traffic instructor(s)’s misjudgment? Oh, my goodness!

Do you face the same problem?

Website Will Be Down

October 22, 2007

Oh no! My website will be down for few hours on tomorrow. What to do? Recently the server is not performing well. I have submitted tons of complaint since last 2 weeks. Argh…really can’t stand it anymore. So, just take the pain to temporary down my website, probably for few hours or even up to 24 hours. I wish the web hosting company will really do their job to fulfill my requirement. I just want a trusty server to host my lovely website. I paid the amount, and I should be given a equivalent service in return, right?
