World Car Free Day (22 September)

Other than seeing "云顶 Genting" logo on Aston Villa's jersey, you will also have "AirAsia" and "MAS" logos on QPR's jersey! What a new venture by these tycoons! And the best part is, our Malaysian striker is going to Cardiff City FC and might have the opportunity to be with the QPR FC as well... Anyway, wish him success and be a much better striker, don't ever come back here anymore unless he is playing for Malaysia!

Flip, flip and flip... Many interesting stuff on the newspaper these few days. Among them were the 6pc service tax on mobile prepaid users, the dispute on the Malaysian history, imbalance proportion between male and female in the university, new medical schools set up in Serdang and, the World car free day! I think all the issues are possible but I don't think so for the Car free day in KL. Most people are just too rely on their own cars rather than the public transport due to many factors. Since many years ago, we had came up with our intra- and intercity train system. Then, the intra- and intercity bus transportation system have changed tremendously as well. But how well do all these transportation system work to serve the public? In terms of cost, time, convenience etc?

And recently, we have our new upgraded bus terminals but poor management system still managed by some of the bus companies. That was why it left me stranded in Ipoh bus terminal for hours and hours in an incident last month. Sound frustrating? Yea, it was really frustrating! So you can't blame why does the public does not want to take the public transport. Sometimes people prefer spending more to drive on their own rather than wasting more time for "WAITING". Because "Time is always precious"! Not only that, how about the comfort when you are in a train?! I guess you know what I meant when I say SANDWICH in a train. You are lucky if you have someone odourless standing beside you, but you will be suffocating when you have someone stinky next to you! The weather? We can't do anything about that...

So, I am wondering how is this Car free day going to be a success if you expect everyone relies on the public transportation. It seems closing some of the main roads is the main plan but I doubt you will see more cars on the roads and causing more traffic congestion. Hmm. I guess I will spend my time at the park rather than going out to the city that day... XD

Enjoy and have a nice day...
