If you are planning to go to Parkcity Everly Hotel and Marriot SPA in Miri from 11.30 amÂ – 1.00 pm during school days, I say, forget it! Not via Brighton Road.
This traffic jam is becoming worst from year to year. This year, it starts right from the Central Bus Station at Park Hotel, along Jalan Kubu, Jalan Abang Andeh, through to SK St. Columba, SMB St. Columba, junction of RTM Miri, up to SK North, SMB Chung Hua passing through Parkcity right up to SMB St. Joseph!!
That could take up almost an hour!! So, forget about lunch at the two hotels – or, you can pre-order two hours before.
The local media publish so much on the traffic conjestion in Kuching especially infront of St. Mary and St. Thomas, but heii guys, I welcome you to this resort city and experience one of the best ever along the coastal highway.
The stretch handles thousand of students, motor vehicles and school buses daily. Although the Division Traffic Police HQ is just a merely 50 metres from SK North, but I have yet to see any policeman controlling the flow of traffic (except for the traffic light).
Probably the HQ should get at least two of their personnel to man that stretch and maintain the three or four at the roundabout near SK St. Joseph Miri.
Pssttt… they have 2,000 MPV but lack the drivers.
And, today, the national papers carried the Trillion Record on their front pages – Star, Country’s trade hit historic high last year, driven by exports. Bravo Malaysia!!
Well, to a layman, we know now that Malaysia have the money to pay for all the promises made by the Barisan Nasional candidates during the last election. We also understand that they can deliver and this is something that we should be waiting for. Yesterday, 23 men are in the Task Force to overhaul the archiac procedures and unnecessary bureaucratic red-tape and of course to enhance the economic activities. Yesterday too, we read about RHB, Utama Banking Group Bhd (UBG) and Cahaya Mata Sarawak RM2.1 billion cash deal with Kuwait Finance. RHB approved of a restricted offer for sale later.
