The complaint sound so simple! You hate bad smell emitted from a nearby pig farm, when you goes to bed every night. You then flip through the local phone directory and found a number of your local council or city hall. You call them and they asked you to write in.
Hmm.. maybe logging a report online is much faster today.. so you logged in to their Talikhidmat and report your case – bad smell and hoping that bad smell will be looked into and then you can go to bed peacefully (breathing fresh air).
Talikhidmat will send the report to ‘what they think is/are the correct department’ to look into our complaint. I tell you – a bad smell – needs FOUR government agencies to solve (if it can be solve).. well I found it out after months of smelling the bad smell and in the end my case was closed UNSOLVED!

How can I give an answer if the problem remains? Poor City Council who needs to deal with people like me, and their colleague, elsewhere, in the other three government department, does nothing! At the end of the day, they will get their bonuses.. damn!
Paklah failed! So this Najib fella.. can he solve this bloody inefficiency? Answer will come to you next year (God’s willing). Or else,… we need breathing apparatus to sleep.
Should have think of setting up a shop selling fresh air tank (just like reverse osmosis – selling treated LAKU water) in Taman Da Sing and its surroundings.
