A cruel 10 minutes

Again, I was reminded of how bad the condition of our public transport is.

The journey from KL Sentral to Mid Valley by KTM train takes only 5 minutes to arrive. But these are the things that would lead you to frustration:

1. Frequency of the train is normally 20 minutes, with extremely high frequency of delays.

2. The number of people rushing into the train is extremely high, with over 50 people going into one carriage at once.

3. Frustrated with the long queue, people from the back of the queue would squeeze the people in front to go in, hoping that they don’t have to wait another 20 minutes for the next train to arrive.

4. The squeezing and pushing leads to the high frequency of theft.

So how are we going to move forward? With this speed of upgrading work, we’re moving backwards to be in par with India.

Stage lights

It has been awhile since I last play with those stage lights. I loved them very much.





I understand that I should not publish these photographs on my blog, but I hope that everyone could learn a few tricks to photographing with stage lights. The end product never fails to amaze me!

Hello? Telephone…

Have you ever called a company or an institution, where the first few lines you heard when the person on the other side of the line answered, “Hello, company name”.

Here are some instances where I’ve experienced, and perhaps you should try.

Call UTAR, and you hear this first line, “Hello, UTAR

Call Dell, and you hear, “Thank you for calling Dell.

So you may ask, what’s the difference?

The both of them are grammatically sound, but they mean different things. How are they different?

How would you greet your friend? Say, “Hello Peter.” or “Hello Jane”. So if the person answering your call said “Hello UTAR”, it means that your name is UTAR, not Peter or Jane.

A lecturer once pointed this out to us during an English class and this funny line never failed to entertain me throughout the day. “The next time you call UTAR and the person answered ‘Hello, UTAR’, you should reply this instead, ‘I’m sorry, my name is not UTAR. I am Mike.’”

So I hope that the next time you’re answering calls, try to say something like “Thank you for calling company name, how can I assist you?” or “This is company name support/hotline, how can I help you?”

Happy calling.

Eventful today

Lots of stuffs happened today… some came really unexpected, while some others, are just meant to be that way.

Incident #1

I wanted to finish my 36 exposure film. When it was done, I found out that I could still wind some more. Then I got curious… could the film go beyond 40 exposures?

Then I stopped and rewind the film. Only to realize that the roll of film might have torn.

Upon sending it to the photo studio for aid, only I found out that that very roll of film did not load properly, resulting in an unexposed film… *speechless*

Incident #2

Sent my panorama of KK for printing, and it is beautiful! I’ve never had any of my panoramas printed beyond 4 foot!

Incident #3

It was an eco-friendly day for me. Went to Carrefour to shop with my own shopping bag (cause today is Saturday), plus, I cycled there. It felt great!

Incident #4

I went to Digital Mall to get some photo paper. It was then I saw the new KTM Duke. Didn’t expect to see that bike in Malaysia so soon…


Anyways, more updates soon, with photos I hope.
