Pujut 7 Potholes: technical and non-technical

2009-02-13-road

I guess its better to be thankful to the Miri City Council (not updated yet to reflect the new mayor.. sorry yah) for this short term solution to the potholes along Pujut 7 highway (the way Nadai Nama termed it – any road that is 2-lanes is call a highway).

Photo taken at 9.50am today shows men filling the holes at various pots along that highway. Filling – pick up a spade, scoop some tar and dump it in the hole.. and leave.

I don’t blame the men at work, since, probably they have not been send for training on proper road maintenance. The engineers (may be) but heck.. its the work of another division.. and so on!

Resort City

Yahh.. we are a resort city and we need to feel like in one. Full of green and exotic travel/rides on our road. That’s truly Asia – city with holes and sinking welcome.

WiFi?

Errr… I will tell my visitors, yes we do. We have a blanket WiFi with potholes at major housing areas. Yalarr yalarr potholes again. Yalorr.. WiFi potholes (no coverage in housing areas.. cause technically its a pothole). Hehehehee.. WiFi waahh so cool ahh you people in Miri. So advance meh?

Signal ada, Internet tarak ada. Our ministers cakap One year trial.. now oredi masuk 2009 – TWO years after 2007 launching.. pun masih on trial! Janji ada signal WiFi.. pun kira OK.

Paper report – indeed we are on track – hampeh! I do not know and understand who this WiFi providers are trying to serve. If its the people – bullshit, but if its the government sector – ya, you’ve got it right.
