    USJ dot com TT-session with AllUrban (MOAZ)

    If some of you had been members of this Forum long enough, you should remember our old member ALLUrban who was (and I guess still is) very interested in the public transport solutions for SubangJaya / USJ. He had since gone home to Canada a few years back.

    ALLUrban (his real name is Moaz) is now back in USJ for a visit !!

    We will be having our Teh-Tarik (TT) session with Moaz
    on Friday night, 10 March from around 8:45pm
    at Khalifah (mamak coffee shop) in USJ8

    All are welcome to join us
    Your chance to see who-is-who of USJ Forum.
    We would probably be there till 11pm or later if participants insist on chit-chatting.

    Weather prediction for Friday is good, with only 24% chance of rain, temp down to 27oC

    Hi my lady-o-leisure, long time no see. I remember clearly those nights you used to hang around with we guys till the past midnight. You were very frank with your opinions and have a mind of your own. But I still think your mum who came to our TT session once was still the greatest. I lost out to her when it came to debating on political issues.

    Last night, only 9 were there. I guess in today's world, people are meeting lesser face to face. They rather argue on the net and behind a nick. Here is the list of The Last of the Mohicans.

    1.KW Chang
    2.Robert Chan
    3.Annie Tiong

    Thanks to the above forummers who turned up. And thanks for staying till past midnight. And it was an interesting night talking about public transport then and now and family matters. Surprisingly, the 1MDB issue was never discussed at all. So refreshing.

    One day, Socrates put an apple on his desk in a classroom. He asked his students : " Do you guys smell anything ? " They were a few students said they smelled the fragrance of fresh apple. Majority of other students looked confuse and quiet.

    Socrates said : " Everyone here concentrate please, tell me do you smell anything ? " After a short moment, all students unanimously said they smelled fresh apple.

    Socrates then told the class : " Very sorry, this is not an apple, it was made of red fabric. I guess most people just like to follow the crowd. "

    One kisah benar, I was part of this story.

    I was once invited to a job interview. The main interviewer is the HR director, I was there to provide some input from what I know about the job.

    The HR director put a cigarette box on the desk and asked the interviewee to describe the box in less than 300 words. He did this to all those who made it to the 2nd round of interview.

    Almost all will provide a description of the box based on their academic training. An accountant will tell you the economic impact of illicit cigarette trading, an art student will tell you the design of the box , an engineering student will tell you the printing machine or the packaging flow, etc..

    Hi PC.. yes, my mom can talk about almost anything
    It is a pity that people aren't coming out TT sessions much anymore. They were a fun and wonderful way to get to know fellow Forumers openly. I recognize all the names listed except no3 and 4. Public transportation is a good issue to pursue as transportation itself affects a great deal of people's lives. Being stuck in jams everyday is ridiculously stressful and a waste of time but if public transportation is not up to standard, it isnt going to help much. That is why i still like going around in Taiwan and Singapore, it is sooooo easy. Granted they are small islands, but it makes a huge difference when you need not depend on your own vehicle to move about. Then everyone in the family has to have a vehicle, and parking is a problem. How many households have enough space to park 4 cars?? Over here in SoCal, they can't even build a decent rail service to cater to those from San Diego going all the way up to LAX (airport). The drive is horrendous, van/private limo service is crazy expensive and you have to leave about 4+ hours before your flight time. Kepala hotak! All because of stupid politicians. argghh...

    P/S : After returning from my last trip to Msia/Spore, hubby and i rented a car to drive home from LAX. What should have been an hour and half's drive, took more than 3 hours instead. I really wanted to cry from misery. I was so tired from the traveling and being confined in a miserably cramped seat in the plane, and had to endure another 3 hours of sitting in a car. Traffic here sucks BIG time. I duduk diam diam at home and drive around my area only (and avoid peak hours). Anyone asking me to drive to LA... forget it! NOT going.

    Now I understand why Trump requested a huge budget to revamp the infrastructure. Didn't know you guys are so challenged in facilities

    He also mentioned , while campaigning, about the appalling airports here and he is right. It has taken so many years for them to fix and upgrade LAX to how it finally looks like a modern airport. It was just awful a few years ago. Almost like our old Subang airport. Don't even look at some of the other airports in this country. And then there is the fight over building a high speed rail system from LA to Vegas but this state refuses to allow it even though LVegas has offered to pay for it. CA wont agree coz they dont want people to spend their money in Vegas so easily. Nama saja United States but they actually arent very united when it comes to making money. So in the meantime, the freeways get all jammed up and people spend more on petrol coz that is what the oil cartel wants anyway. Politics... Some of them have already got roots growing from their rear end and stuck to their seats. They don't want to give up their positions. This country's money goes everywhere except where it really needs to go.

    Many were thinking the other guy, what's his name, was doing such a good job. Trump, you have a tough job ahead.

    Tough job ????

    Among all of them during the presidential campaign, trump is my preferred candidate not because he can make things happen but because :

    1. He is 75 years old now, unlikely he can win again. Four years down the road, I doubt the americans want a 80 years old man to run the country. Nothing much he can deliver in 4 years period and his successor will f his legacy (if any) just like the way he f obama healthcare program. Let the US spend all their time and energy in campaigning and other non constructive works whereas the smarter people in Far East are focusing on modernisation and developments.

    2. a president of his "quality " is good news to smarter people in Far East, regardless of he is an enemy or friend, he is always better than hilary.

    3. I quite like his approach in immigresen policies.

    Surely, after a few weeks as President, he did not age that fast as 75.

    I think he is only 71 in June, another term, no problem.

    Yes, you are right.. he is 71 soon, not 75.

    But I am positive that (1), (2) and (3) in post #12 are still valid...

    iSayman, I missed the thread on this teh tarik thingy. Otherwise, I would make it perfect 10/10 where we go go on 1 Monkey Donkey Baboon issues over cuppa of teh tarik.
