    I think some people who shop at Mydin are getting a bit too much. This afternoon while coming out of Summit I was crawling towards the traffic lights when I noticed two Ah Ees taking out their Mydin shopping bags out from the Giant shopping cart!!! Goodness gracious me. These 2 middle aged ladies must have parked at the road side between Giant and Summit to go to Mydin to avoid paying the RM 10 parking charge. They must have gone on a shopping spree at Mydin and as they walked through the Giant car park, they conveniently used the shopping cart left behind at the Giant carpark and used it to carry their purchases up to the side gate next to Summit. One of these days, the giant will roar and beat the shiit out of Mydin as they can only take only so much. What the two ladies have done sudah jadi lebih. What will the Mydians think of next? Sorry, I didn't bring my digital camera or else I would have posted the photos here and it was a sight to see.

    Practise what you preach and mind your own business. Why are you bothered where the two ladies park their car or if they even try to avoid paying the parking fee? It is none of your business really. Why do you care if they have Mydin shopping bags in Giant trolleys, or even vice versa?

    And what gives you the right to use your digital on two lady shoppers on their day out shopping, and publish it here for all to see? You just blardy preached about intruding into people's privacy and here you are doing this low-down thing?

    Please go examine your own character before criticising other peoples' behaviour. It is easy to point your fingers at others but unless one has no weakness of his own, its okay. In your case, you cannot even blardy observe your own advice, go take a walk.

    Take it easy lah, Sentinel. Maybe it is due to the lack of sleep after the celebration. If you find it unpalatable, you should pm the moderator and express your views and let the moderator decide.

    I think PCYeoh have done a good job reporting the facts of the situation and giving his comments. Nothing wrong or 'overboard' about that. If we are to abide with your expectation we would NOT be able to express any views on activities or events other than fictions and other talk c..ks.

    I always find PCYeoh photos very informative, as they said a picture is worth a thousand words. However i agree if we focus on any person(s) in such situations, it would be ethical to cover or blurr their faces.

    Keep up the good work, PC.

    Hey.. if giant b... , i also want to see...

    Seriously, i read there are possible legal implications if we publish photos of another person anywhere without their permission, especially if it unfavourable. That is why they have such things is 'model released' conditions.
    There could be exemptions like a mass of people in a crowd, etc. I am not too sure, but better be on the safe side.

    Listen to me, please. Advise your friend PCYeoh exactly what you have written to me. If he doesn't like what is written, ask him to PM the moderator but no need to come in here and talk down to people. Please do not offer this advice to me because I didn't start this! It was your friend PCYeoh.

    Just because you like him and his photos doesn't mean I have to stop writing the way I want to just to satisfy him... and now you.

    Appreciate your views but please, unless you are fairhanded and not asking only one party to be fair, stay out.

    This was exactly what he should learn himself, nic_of_time. I was writing on a housing renovation and he stopped me in my tracks. Here, you are contradicting......

    It is obvious you are already taking sides without knowing the full extent of the issues.

    At the point in writing i was refering to matters in this thread. I do not read all threads.
    There should not be any exceptions, it would be more harmonious if posters do not issue personal condemnation of each other's view directly.
    If you think someone in going 'overboard' on any issue then one should pm the person privately for restraint or/and to inform the moderator.
    I won't get involve in this matter further and i suggest you make whatever complains to the moderator.

    I think Sentinel is unfair to jump the gun and "berate" PC YEoh for his comments. Talk about getting worked up over poor understanding ....I suspect your harsh tone is opportunistic and highly personal-sounding. All the postings so far are just comments -- like it or not, it makes interesting reading. Civility is a treasured trait but even if I had wished to be critical, I would have made sure I grasped the content well.

    If you had read PC Yeoh's text carefully and understood it (perhaps u got bad english eh? I am certain it isn't my poor comprehension!), you would have noted that his last sentence said that he did not have the photos to illustrate his anecdote. In any case, I am sure he would have been intelligent enuf to cover the tell-tale aspects and blur the features of the 2 aunties.

    Anyway, folks, what's the fuss over the 2 hypermarts. Don't like it don't go there. Period. If curiosity is your middle name, then go join the merry jam and human traffic and don't complain, etc.

    Having said what you have just written, don't you think making personal opinions like yours known and taking side even before you know the full story does not add to this harmony of this forum that you so desire? C'mon man, walk the talk....

    Good. Then I suggest you grasp the whole matter well first before berating me.

    You're right, I have bad English and it isn't your poor comprehension either. These assumptions you have just made said it all, need I add more?

    Eh.. relax lah.. sentinel.
    I have no inkling what transpired earlier that is why i had innocently asked you to take it easy.. lighten with that drinking joke... and did not condemn you at all, and commented on the work that PC had done based on known facts in this thread. Read my original post again.

    I understand issues unfortunately can sometime get emotional, but one should not 'infect' it all over the board to other innocent threads. In this circumstances it is best you take a short break to let your nerves settle down first and resolve any unhappiness you have with the moderator.

    Aiyaaa.. here we are trying to discuss about some giantic price wars.. let's try and forget about wars between our own members. Give and take lah..

    Why should I relax or be asked to relax when someone else come and behave "holier than thou" and talk down to me? Why ask me to lighten up, why not ask the perpetrator to lighten up? By commenting on good work done by PCYeoh and encouraging him on, at the same time asking me to relax, was in my opinion playing sides. If you want to advise, advise at least both sides. Don't play favorites here and then try and tell me all kinds of bull excuses.

    Why are you accusing me instead of infecting the whole forum with what I did when it was someone else who came and try to bully his way through? Why am I the one you are asking to take a short break and cool down? Why point the finger at me?

    This is exactly what I have been trying to point out to you, why are you faulting ME for everything? Don't try to play favorites here my friend, it is so damn obvious. I don't need someone else to come and lecture me on how to behave when I have been insulted by another.

By the way, Sentinel could have broken all the rules in our book ... name-calling, foul language, .... you name it, he did it. PC was't helping by fanning the fires.

    So how? Send them for a holiday for a few days. I guess 3 days should quell their fires? I am also consolidating their bashings into a moderation thread so that both threads are cleaned of all these silliness.
    Well Chang, it wasn't a fair thing to do, it wasn't the right thing to do either. I am sure you know this was not the first time he has done this to me or to others. Will banning Sentinel (which is also my other nick) resolve the issues with PCYeoh? I don't think so, not from what he has written in the PMs to me and the way he wrote it. This bugger has crossed the line, became very personal and seriously this issue is bigger than just banning us for a few days. It is a personal problem now, he has made it to be, and I want to settle it with him personally, anyway he like it.... he chooses the method and I will be in front of him in a jif. Some people think they can challenge and bully and get away with it, well this time he has got the wrong chap.

    THis oldman really 'cannot tahan' Oredi...
    If this guy really wanted to help, he should direct or advice the mamber go to the authority to get his doubts clearify... Not asking him to find out how others can run the 'Loop holes' as what he had stated.
    AS for his personal cases with Toyota and stand chart, why don't he go to the ministery of trade and bank Negara to complaint instead of barking in the forum ??
    he should be ban forever...
