Who says KL traffic is bad? Not Mat VIP!

This is a filler post 'coz I'm too lethargic to write anything original. Maybe I ought to take up some form of energetic activity like Helen, who's taken a short hiatus to go aerobic dancing. She got me thinking that I'm probably spending too much time on my bum, whether at the desk working/blogging or in my car stuck in traffic.

Which brings to mind I've still to put up Kam Raslan's witty take on the suffering of non-VIP motorists in KL. Well, this is as good a time.

(From Talking Edge, September 11, 2006 issue of The Edge Malaysia).


KL's traffic is very bad.

It might not be as bad as Bangkok but it's still bad.

And parking can be difficult too. But I've noticed that one group of people don't seem to suffer as much as the rest of us, and those are our VIPs.

For this special group, all traffic problems disappear.

Therefore, instead of building new roads or transport systems that don't connect with each other, the simplest solution would be to elevate everybody to VIP status, complete with out-riders.

Because of the numbers involved it might be impractical but if there was at least a time-share system where for one day a week or a month we could enjoy VIP status, then it would make things more bearable.

Our present VIPs could be elevated to VVIPs or, if they are already VVIPs, they could become VVVIPs.

Malaysia loves the VIP culture and it's only fair that everybody gets a chance to experience the lifestyle.


Boleh ka??

I think if YB Datuk Raja Ahmad Zainuddin Raja Omar (BN-Larut) is the PM, sure boleh, kan?
After all, he's the one who suggested in Parliament that repayment of loans disbursed by the National Higher Education Loan Fund be abolished because "(the Ministry) is facing difficulty in recovering the loans." (theSUN, page 8, September 14, 2006).

Really food for thought. You notice those 'special' platings? JP, Ahli Parlimen, PJK...etc etc. Tell me, what purpose do these special plates served other than giving these VIPs the right to break the law? I know for a fact police won't issue summons if they park illegally. Seen it many many times liao.

Heh! In Bolehland we do notice that if we make the authorities frus enough, they will give up on us, sometimes we even get rewarded for frussing them up! Bagus kan?
