  1. James,

    I’m an avid visitor of your blog. Your wonderful photos brings insight on Miri’s places for recognition, especially those whom does not frequent much to this quiet City (it used to be 10 yrs ago). Your recent postings on the drainage over Jalan Pantai, pertubed me indeed! Providing visitors to your blog on the extraction letter from relevant authority, in response to a complaint letter, does not deserve credits, to one that inspires immediate execution and provoke poor public delivery system.

    It is an insult to those whom have read the response letter, which no greater than mere social statement of a known written agenda, in an aim to pleased the ordinary society. Any fool can write such response, utter cheap publicity. The fact is, your complaint does not carries and will never seize much inpound progress of the said issue. It is indeed shameful, for Sarawakians, even the simplest roads make over, would requires people to endeavour such difficulties. In other countries even Thailand & Singapore, the authorities has routines checking over all inner roads leading into sensitive spots. Each lanes / roads which forsees great danger and safety to road users, will be alerted and rectify within 48 hrs time frame. They do not wait for the public funds or one scapegoat to charge them accountable!

    If you’re really serious in serving the public; I suggest, you should give datelines to the relevant department, failure with the YB or ADUNs will be forced to rectify the matter immediately. These representatives are well paid to serve the public including road maintenance and drainage across the city. While I admire, your intiative to highlight such grievances, there’re plentiful of issues such as denggi, traffic jams, poor public parking management system, lack of pedestrians walk and etc…that needs immediate attentions for Miri folks.

    Of all what is said, i hope this to be posted. Let’s make your blog more lively, exciting, dramatic and social obliged to all visitors. I am no drama queen, I am just an ordinary ‘kapchai’ seller

    All the best!
