SelangorKu Bus Service – We Are Proud Of It!

Since taking over control, the Selangor government, under the former Chief Minister of Khalid Ibrahim and the current Chief Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, introduced several projects for the benefit of the Selangor people.

Amongst the Pakatan Rakyat’s good governance, the state government’s coffers are no longer in the red. Projects like the “free water scheme”, “housing projects”, including low cost houses which people can see coming up in nearby Klang town, in Setia Alam are proofs to the people of Selangor of PKR’s success.

For anyone to claim that Azmin Ali’s government has done all good and nothing bad is certainly incorrect! Take a drive in the night and you’ll certainly see this Bandar Di Raja of Klang enveloped in semi total darkness.

In a way, I agree with anyone such a shameful thing shouldn’t happen at all. Anyway, this is what politics is all about.

People say, “in life, nothing actually is free nowdays”. But do tarry a while this popular English saying might soon be outdated.

Do you know that even if you wish to urinate, you’ll have to pay some 30 to 50 cents for the usage of the public toilets?

But are many people aware that the Selangor government has introduced the free Bas Selangorku service in certain parts of the state such as in Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK), Subang Jaya and Majlis Bandaran Shah Alam (MBSA).

People in the above areas can now enjoy free bus rides from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm at night daily.

In Klang, I have seen 2 or 3 new My Selangor Bus stationed at the Klang bus station waiting to ferry people. And the buses are all new ones.

Amongst other things the buses can:
1) Carry 60 passengers.
2) Friend to OKU.
3) Seats are comfortable.
4) The buses also provide Wifi system to passengers too.

Well, what more can you expect.

Syabas and congratulations to Datuk Seri Azmin. Keep up the good work. Well done!

This short article will touch upon on the Selangorku service for MPK only. Efforts to explain the services of other areas such as MBSA and MBSJ will be dealt with at a later stage eventually.

To inform readers about this Selangorku services, people are remaided that the above bus service begins from Wisma Hafiz, Jalan Batu 3 Lama, and if meanders through the royal town and finally ends at its last stop at S.R. Kong Hoe Chinese school in Jalan Batu 3 Lama.

Should readers need any further information, do call 03-3375-5555 or 1-800-88-23826.

Well then, what are you still waiting for. The Selangorku buses are easily recognizable. It is painted in the famous Selangor colours of yellow and red.

Bus Selangorku, as a resident of Selangor, I sure am proud of it! After all, how many states have it anyway.

Is An Eye Test Required To Get a Driving License?

Is an eye test required to get a driving license in Malaysia?

The answer is No!

But one has to possess good vision, nevertheless.

When sitting for the Highway Code exam, potential candidates face an 8 question “Colour Blind Test”. Fail it, and your problems then begins.

Drivers and riders face many eye problems, amongst them “astigmatism” where the eye is splitting lights and short sightedness.

Older drivers nowadays may have cataract problems. What is cataract problem anyway?

As one gets on with age, our vision or our ability to see, deteriorate. A well known eye centre explains cataract condition as being an aging eye condition.

The cornea or lens of our eyes become blur. Vision then becomes poor.

If a driver is affected by the above eye condition, it is best to get immediate medical attention.

Today eye medical centres such as the Hussien Onn Medical Centre, the Selayang Hospital, Sunway Medical etc are places where one can easily seek help for cataract problems.

But is the public aware that in Klang, the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah General Hospital is rather well known nowadays for its eye operation services to the residents of the royal town of Klang and its surrounding areas?

I recently underwent a cataract eye operation at the Wad Mata or Eye Ward of the above mentioned hospital.

To be fair, I have nothing but praises all round for the services provided. The nurses, the eye specialist and everyone concerned should be commended.

Bravo, I should say!

On the 15th January 2016, I will have another appointment with the Indian lady eye specialist at the Tengku Ampuan General Hospital. After that if everything goes well, the doctor will then set the date to remove the stitches of the said operation.

To end this short article on my cataract episode, I have however to make one pertinent complaint about the Klang General Hospital though. The Wad Mata is far too cold…for me anyway.

And my wad colleague, Mr Chia from Pulau Ketam, I’m certain will also share my contention too.

MBPJ & MPK Launched Discount Campaign 2015

I’ve overheard over the radio recently that the Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) of the local council of Petaling Jaya, launched its 50% deduction of its summonses or fines campaign.

As far as I am aware, the above authority does give the public this generous offer once in a year. The general public, especially those drivers who have committed traffic offences and have yet settle their outstanding summonses of fines, should take the opportunity to settle their dues soon.

Do run over to MBPJ office in Petaling Jaya to settle you dues immediately. For you information, the discounted 50% offer is valid only for 2 months.

Local council like MBPJ and Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) and Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) as a matter of fact face problems in the collection of traffic offences. The above councils dislike hauling drivers to courts and such action is best avoided wherever possible.

Yearly discounted rates for the collection of traffic fines benefit both the local councils in question and drivers as a whole. With the economic slowdown currently affecting the nation and the recent implementation of GST, I believe drivers should not allow MBPJ’s offer to go to naught.

Beside MBPJ’s generous offer, yet another local council, the Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK), likewise has also launched its discounted rate offer as well.

In fact, MPK has bettered MBPJ’s offer!

While MBPJ offered only 50% rebate to traffic wrong doers, MPK slashed all fines and summonses to a low RM15.00! The duration for all payments will however last for only 1 months.

So what about it, all drivers of Klang and Selangor as well. Dig into your records. Do you still have old traffic summonses to settle?

If you do, the MPK office is where you can settle the outstanding fines. It is located at the Town Council Building in front of the Dewan Hamzah.

Let me tell you that just a month ago, yours sincerely went to the Town Council Building above to settled an outstanding summons for RM10. It took me less than 15 minutes to end the above predicament.

MBPJ and MPK generous and thoughtful considerations towards drivers should rightfully be accorded the public’s appreciation.

Besides, drivers of both the above mentioned council should be wary of their driving antics and refrain from committing traffic offences in the future.

Drive carefully, the next time around. Let’s ensure no traffic offences are committed wherever possible.
