The other day I received a police summons for an offense that I SWEAR I have never committed.
The offense was written up in Kuantan, a town which I have not visited in years. The last time I was in the East Coast was during last year’s holiday in Redang, where we stopped in Kuala Terengganu for a while.
The car was my old Iswara, which was sold to a second-hand car dealer BEFORE the date of the offense.
Surprisingly it was still under my name.
Damn sien, have to go to the police station now. If not, cannot renew my road tax soon.
This is common knowledge, but whatever. You can check for summons by sending a SMS to the.. erm people. Type “POLIS SAMAN (your IC without dashes or car registration number)” and send to 32728. Then you will receive a SMS that says you have a have a summons for how much on this and that date, and if you want more details, you’ll have to send another SMS saying “POLIS SAMAN (IC or car registration number) SEMUA” and you will get a SMS with the summons details. Each SMS costs RM0.50.

A couple of years ago, we went to Sabah for a family trip. Met up with my sister’s friend, Audrey who was a teacher in Kota Kinabalu. She related a story to us that has been in my mind all these while; never got around to blogging it until I read Bluqube‘s post today.
It was the closing dinner of Sabah’s Teachers’ Day celebration. Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein was supposed to be there and address the 2,000 guests present, but at the last minute he could not make it. So one of his deputies attended the dinner in his place.
The deputy stood up to make his speech. He had been to many places in Sabah, he said. He had been to Menggatal and he had been to Bum Bum. He had also been to Nunukan.
If you are like me who can be geographically-challenged at times, here’s a nifty map highlighting kedudukan Nunukan.
Q: What is more dangerous than driving behind a tractor going at 20 kph?
A: Driving behind an indecisive L-plate female student going at 30 kph on a single lane accompanied by an instructor barking into her ears.
I think it should have been ‘take back TEH tech’, would be more relevant, you know Anyhow, it will be fun, so let’s do it.
