Cuti Umum Vs Bekerja?

KUALA LUMPUR 30 Dis. - Semua majikan diminta memberi cuti bergaji kepada pekerja esok berikutan pengisytiharan cuti umum bagi meraikan kejayaan skuad bola sepak Malaysia menjuarai Piala Suzuki AFF 2010.

Menteri Sumber Manusia, Datuk Dr. S. Subramaniam berkata, majikan hendaklah memberi cuti kelepasan am sebagai cuti wajib tambahan kepada pekerjanya sebagaimana seperti yang diperuntukkan dalam seksyen 60D(1)(b) Akta Pekerjaan 1955.
"Namun jika majikan masih memerlukan pekerja untuk bekerja pada hari tersebut atas keperluan operasi maka pekerja berkenaan hendaklah dibayar gaji mengikut peruntukan Akta Pekerjaan 1955," katanya.
Beliau ditemui selepas menyaksikan percubaan dua adik-beradik mencatatkan nama dalam Malaysia Book of Records dengan melakukan tekan tubi paling banyak dan angkat berat kanak-kanak menggunakan jari di sini hari ini.
Semalam, Perdana Menteri mengisytiharkan esok cuti umum bertujuan memberi peluang kepada semua rakyat Malaysia merayakan kejayaan pasukan bola sepak negara menjuarai Piala Suzuki AFF 2010.
Tambah Subramaniam, jika majikan gagal memberi cuti umum atau membayar mengikut kadar cuti umum, para pekerja boleh membuat aduan kepada Jabatan Tenaga Kerja.
"Majikan boleh dikenakan tindakan jika didapati bersalah," katanya.


Tahniah sekali lagi atas skuad Harimau Malaya yang berjaya membaham Garuda!~
Adat permainan, kali ini kami pula yang berjaya!~

Maka atas kejayaan itu, Perdana Menteri Dato' Sri Najib Razak mengumumkan hari ini (31 Disember 2010) sebagai cuti umum. Bukan selalu kita menang piala sukan ini yang dahulunya dipanggil Tiger Cup.

Tapi topik kali ini berkisar tentang kekecewaan mereka yang terpaksa bekerja pada hari cuti umum tersebut (pekerja swasta terutamanya)
Tapi jangan risau rakan sekalian, Datuk Subra dah mengumumkan dapat gaji double/triple ikut undang-undang. Kalau majikan tak bagi, boleh report & majikan didenda.

Kira dapat gaji double/triple ni okay la, dari tak dapat apa-apa kan?

That's life, realiti kepada pekerja swasta yang makan gaji


Harimau Malaya Mengaum!!!!

It's a bit late but i would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to Harimau Malaya Squad for winning the AFF Suzuki Cup which was previously also known as Tiger Cup.. Coincidence perhaps?

Me & mum screamed like mad people while watching both legs of the match. but it definitely was worth it.
All of you would probably read the match analysis, so i wouldn't need to touch that.

Unlike the Indonesians, we accepted defeat in the first game as professionals, so i would advice them to accept it like gentlemen also.
Be professionals, if you (Indonesians) think that Malaysians cheated, then please do a formal report to FIFA & AFF, simple!~

The issue about lasers & such, are childish as both squads suffered the same issue at both stadiums.
Plus, the condition of the pitch was not worthy to be at International level. It was more likely fit for a "kampung" match. No offence, but most of us saw how bad the pitch was.

At the end of the day, the best team won.

 We won, that's a fact.

But, i would like to sum the match with a favourite quote form Jose Mourinho, The Special One..


but one thing i would disagree is the Man of The Match award, it should have definitely been awarded to our Goalkeeper, Khairul Fahmi. He was outstanding!
Onslaught after onslaught, he kept his cool.. and to top it off, he's only 21years old!!! As most of the team!!

Again, no words would be enough to praise to describe the young & triumphant team!!

May they grow & prosper in the future,

make Malaysia proud guys!!!!

My Blood Red Inspira =)


After all the drama & torment of waiting due to Customs & JPJ, finally i got my car aka the Proton Inspira yesterday.
It's just a 1.8A, so nothing to shout about :)

But dear God, from the moment i took the car & going about filling the tank & such, i can't help but notice the amounts of heads turning. Even some guys approached me & asked about the car like:

"Is it really a Lancer?"
"How much is Proton stuffs?"
"How's the handling?"
"Is it using Campro?"
etc etc...

Kinda loving being the center of attention actually because I think i may be the 1st person in Ampang area to receive that car.
A friend even joked "You must be an UMNO guy!"

Here's some pictures;


The 386th Car out of the Factory? yay!~

Mummy, I promise i won't bully them again.. *cross fingers* :)

For a test drive, it's relatively a short drive from Ampang to Putrajaya.
I can only realistically compare it to my previous car which is the Satria Neo.
Bear in mind, there are other better drivers out there, i'm just a plain normal driver,so my thoughts are based on that.

Everybody knows it's a great handling car, but it's nature is somewhat tail-happy. So when i drove the Inspira, it's really "different" & oh man, i really needed to adapt to this new creature
Ok handling wise compared to the Neo, it's a bit "soft" which was expected since they tuned it for comfort

But due to that also, when going through the really uneven Mex highway, it's a bit "twitchy" ..but it's not a flaw, just a characteristic

Here's the weird part, even with that softness & twitchy-ness, at one point i didn't even realize it was going at 160km/h!~
Minimal wind noise
But of course,i would be more confident with wider tires & stiffer suspensions, but then again, it defeats the purpose of being a comfort car

The best part is, on the way back from Putrajaya, stumbled with a black LGT!~
Awkward moment!~

so i just minded my own business & let him pass..

In terms of engine performance, i think most of u already know how good it is right?
1.8 MIVEC!~

Another thing is about the tinted, i think it's just medium level,acceptable, but can be better..
Maybe i should go install another layer, v-kool perhaps ..but that's later

Oh and there's the WOW factor.. there seems to be some walkathon or sort at Putrajaya Mosque, and most of them were pointing at the Inspira

Even today when i go around having breakfast, people can't seem to stop talk about the car.. Marvelous!~
