Things I heard about Karamunsing Complex, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Please share this information. It's for our own safety :)

Subject: Fw: KARAMUSING SHOPPING COMPLEX - 7th 8th an 9th floor Block C Tower


Date: Tuesday, 18 January, 2011, 7:47 PM

Dear All,

It was reported by Ir. Benny during the last ACEM excom meeting that
there were some issues at the above captioned building/place: The
report declared the 3 floors - 7th, 8th and 9th floor, Tower Block C,
Karamunsing Shopping Complex as unsafe.

At this point in time, we do not have a copy of the report as it is
the property of the client, which is Suria Capital Sdn Bhd (SCHB). It
was reported that  SCHB had moved out to Menara Jubilee as a result of
the findings.

The user of 7th 8th and 9th floor was Suria Capital Sdn Bhd (SCHB):
There were serious vibration reported on the above mentioned 3 floors.
SCHB commissioned our fellow Engineer, Ir. Tsen Yin Fui to conduct a
structural integrity investigation.

The investigation revealed that the design was proper and adequate
except the workmanship during construction. It was reported that the
concrete strength was also adequate, however there were deflection as
much as 3" or more on all the 3 floors. Certain crucial reinforcement
were apparently not in the correct position resulting in very short
lever-arm and hence structurally inadequate. With age and the effect
of creeps, the deflection can only get worst. The 3 floors were
reported to be in a "plastic" stage, and it was declared unsafe.

We were given to understand that DBKK had issue letters to owners of
the affected property to carry out investigation on their own
properties. I have had a few words with our Vice Chairman Ir. Fung and
he reckoned that the property owners especially those who rented out
their premises will not comply as it has serious implication on the
value of their "investment" and as to who is going to pay for the
investigation and so on? This economic consideration is
understrandable, but as professionals and in a situation where the
public safety/lives is at stake, we cannot be seen to be sitting back
and doing nothing.

One obvious thing we must understand is that a sudden collapse of a
building will  result in heavy toll on the lost of lives and
properties. Subsequently, it is going to have a serious repercussion
on the engineering profession.

I suggest we should meet up fast to come up with a recommendation. I
am now in KL and be back tomorrow evening. Perhaps we can meet on
Sunday?

Regards,

CC Lo

Canine 10 Commandments by SPCA Selangor

Would like to share with you an email from SPCA Selangor :D





Canine 10 Commandments!

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you buy or adopt me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want from me.
3. Place your trust in me. It’s crucial to my well-being.
4. Don’t be angry with me for long, and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I only have you.
5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice when it’s speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I’ll never forget it.
7. Remember before you hit me, I have teeth that could easily crush the bones of your hand, but I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, or I’ve been out in the sun too long, or my heart if getting old and weak.
9. Take care of me when I get old. You too will get old.
10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say “I can’t bear to watch it”, or “Let it happen in my absence.”  Everything is easier for me if you are here.
Remember that I LOVE YOU.

P/S: Are you spying on me? Just a random question :)

Should we know what an investment is?

What is investment?

When I was still a kid or teenager, I have no interest in investments. All I think of is to finish my homework, to play, to study, to have a boyfriend and to find a good job so that I can have my own money. That's it. Nothing else. Yes, I know. To have a boyfriend was not supposed to be in the list. Hehe

Insurance? I have no idea what insurance is. All I know is you pay them every month and if something bad happen to you they will give you a huge amount of money. I think it's a stupid business, why should you give money to people? Your company will sure go bankrupt one. That was when I'm still in primary school.

ASB? Mum opened an account for me when I was 12 years old. My 2 brothers also have an account there when they reached the age of 12. At that time, I have a secret plan. A stupid secret plan. My secret plan was I will secretly withdraw an amount of money when I reached the age of 18 (because that's the time you can withdraw money by yourself, without parents's sign) Hahaha. And you want to know how much I want to withdraw? RM200! Lol. RM200 is considered as very 'rich' to me.

Ok. Now I've graduated and have a decent job. That's good. However, it will be greater if I have a job which is related to what I've studied for my Degree. I'm still waiting for it though. Patiently & praying to God every single day. Hoho.

Today, I went to Great Eastern to ask about my insurance. Mum bought an insurance from them and now she's asking me to take over. The original plan was to surrender the insurance but I changed my mind because it's better to wait 2 more years. Hihi. The total surrender value will be much much much much more higher after 2 years. So let's wait until 2 years then! :D

Then, I went to CIMB Bank next to Suria Sabah to apply for the ASB loan. They provided me with all the informations I needed and proceeded with the registration. I'll receive a call from them after a week to sign all the documents pertaining ASB loan.

I'm so glad because now I have my own savings. Those of you who haven't have any savings, you better get one!

All About Him

My January 2011 song! All About Him by Auburn. Officially my fav! Hee. Heard this song from TrexFM 90.7 FM when I was driving back home from work.

"All About Him"

It's Auburn
And J.R.

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

Well, had him shooting for me like a ball team
Every guy was a knock out, Don King
But none of 'em had smarts, that's my thing
It's not enough to have balls, Spalding, ha
One day by Starbucks
I bumped into a guy rocking black Chucks
He said "Excuse me, beautiful," I said, "Aww, shucks"
And then he asked, "Well, ay, wanna grab lunch?"

Never ever met a guy so fly
Got me hooked like apple pie, I
Think I'm falling and I don't know why
But I won't fight these butterflies

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

And I swear what we have is just super cool
The way he's always in my head like a Bluetooth
I got a text from him, he said come through
Told me that he wants to kick it, Kung Fu
Don't do nothing much at all
Just we and his boys watching football
He asked for a kiss (Muah) So I gave him two
He said, "Well, thank you, baby," I said, "You're welcome, boo"

Never ever met a guy so fly
Got me hooked like apple pie, I
Think I'm falling and I don't know why
But I won't fight these butterflies

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

No, I don't need no fancy cars
And I don't need no diamond rings
My baby is all I need and more
'Cause I don't need those extra things

It's not about you (Oh-oh-oh-oh) (It's not about you)
It's not about them (Oh-oh-oh-oh) (It's not about them)
It's all about me (Oh-oh-oh-oh) (It's all about me)
And it's all about him (Oh-oh-oh-oh) (It's all about him)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Said it's all about him, yeah

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

'Cause I'm all about him, him, him, him, him
And he's all about me, me, me, me, me
And we don't give a dang, dang, dang, dang, dang
About nobody-e-e-e

(Oh-oh-oh-oh) 'Cause I'm all about him
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) 'Cause I'm all about him
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) I'm all about him
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) And we don't give a dang, dang, dang
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) It's all about you
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) It's all about you, boy
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) It's all about you
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)

Lipstick?

Another e-mail from mum.


------------------------------------------


Police Warning ON LIPSTICK MARKS ON FRONT OR REAR WINDSCREEN OF CAR 

Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As we drove away I noticed a lipstick mark in the shape of a woman's lips on the front window of the car. We thought it was a joke and just laughed at it. 

When I tried to wash it off, the marks didn't come easily as it was waterproof. Luckily my friends told me to get back into the car as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the car. The very next day, I parked my car at the same parking area and when we returned after our shopping, my car was missing. I had to make a police report the stolen car and forward an insurance claim . 

Then we received this email yesterday : 
WARNING FROM POLICE 
THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN 
BEWARE OF LIPSTICK PRINTS ON THE FRONT OR BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE-- NEW WAY TO DO CARJACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)' 
Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating..... You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. When you get into your car, you notice a lipstick mark on the front or back windscreen. Many drivers do not take this seriously and end up just wiping those lipstick stains off. 

This is a new syndicate making their rounds in Malaysia . This lipstick stain is a marking for the syndicate members to identify which car to be stolen or car jacked. This new method has been discovered already in Penang , Malacca , KL and JB. 

Be careful if you see the lipstick mark on your windscreen. This means your car has already been marked and could be stolen from under your very eyes , even in the car park. You are advised not to leave your parking ticket in the car in any 
carpark and if you discover that your car had already been marked by the lipstick stain, please be advised to install a reputable alarm system in your car to deter the thieves. 

BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED... 
If you see a lipstick stain on your window, don't just ignore it And be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family. Please keep this going and tell all your friends

Movie Review: Meet The Parents - Little Fockers

Mr. D and I decided to catch a movie yesterday. Actually I've planned it since last week. Haha. We wanted to watch Tron: Legacy but changed to The Tourist. Then again, we've decided to watch Meet The Parents instead.

I was a bit disappointed with the movie. Come on. Jessica Alba as a goofy ex-nurse who acts dumb but actually smart? The movie itself is all about God-Focker & Bob-Focker. Boring! The dad wants to pass over his throne to his son in law. Hm. I did laugh but the comedy is not up to my satisfaction.

Rating: 1 out of 5

Enjoy the trailer :)



We should have picked The Tourist. *sigh*
