Why is it people must insist on hosting wedding/engagement parties etc. in their terrace houses and erect tents right across the road, blatantly blocking all traffic and access to the road?

A scene quite often seen in Subang Jaya.

because funeral is sensitive.

Most people would not question it because they don't know about the dead spirit. ha ha.... afterwards haunt you till you become a person who likes to hog the road haha

concern!!!

I wonder what is your motive of putting forth this question. Unlike funeral where the deceased family has no choice and cannot help inconveniencing his/her neighbour and morever they are in their bereavement, those who are celebrating their joyous occasions should be considerate enough to cause minimum inconvenience. I see not many do that. I had on one occasion felt so irritated that I marched to the house to tell the groom that he should place a sign "No through road" when he blocked the exit. Since his house is in a blind spot, I wouldn't know until I reached it. I was forced to reverse about 50 meters all the way to get out. If not for his big smile from ear to ear since that day was his big day, I would have ended up quarreling with him if I had shouted at him with a "Tadak otak punya orang ........"

Thats the way it should be its once in awhile occassion. At times i had to park my car out of the house for few days for some neighbours celeberations ..it was no big deal. One day it could be my turn to close the road. Live and let live.

Good for you. But there are many people who cannot afford to have their weddings in hotels. All they need is a little understanding and goodwill from their neighbours. It is their happy occasions. Let them have the right to be happy. Wish them well and turn your car round. It is just a very little inconvenience but it means so much to others.

If we were to do that so next time if anything is wrong they will
lookout for us and tell us what is happening when we are away and stuff.

Yes. We all live in a community and a little kindness goes a long way.

closing the whole road is a bit inconsiderate. should use only half of the road, and not the whole road. but just tolerate it because it won't last long, just a few days. my advice is just to tolerate it.

I just cannot tolerate when they just left the tables and chairs the whole day blocking the road when the party is at night. And worst still, they even parked their cars in the middle of the road the whole day through. I only can bang bal........ er better left unsaid for I can see a banana flying in my direction.

Wait till you experience your partying neighbours and their "considerate" guests who park outside your gate blocking it. I guess you would let them be happy and wish them well still?
Blocking the whole road is not only inconsiderate I think it is illegal.

I would still let them be happy and wish them well. Tell me. Do your neighbours have road parties every day? Every three days? Every week? Every forthnight? Every month?

I must say then you are extremely tolerant of such behavior. Doing so once a while is no excuse, and it may even have serious consequences, even once. It happened to me, and I happened to be called to hospital at night when there was a party down the road, and a youngster had cooly parked his car right in front of my gate. I had to go over to the house and ask the car to be removed. Imagine the person's long face as he reluctantly did so!

I don't believe in the word 'tolerance' for it implies a lot of sacrifice on my part. I believe that in a community we all live together and such things as people blocking my gates once in a while is all part and parcel of living together. It just doesn't bother me at all. And the person's long face certainly does not bother me. I have long learned not to be affected by people or little events and happenings in life.

Sure thing, Doc. We don't have to agree with each other on this issue, do we? Humans are all different, with our good points and our failings. We just have to learn to live together. Or live in isolation. I don't mean that as in a physical sense only but also in the emotional sense.
