Sectoion 14 Jaya Supermarket accident: Workers trapped, one dead

Thursday, May 28th, 2009 3,755 views

Old abandoned Jaya Supermarket opposite Jaya 33 in Section 14, Petaling Jaya landmark collapsed… It was the very first few supermarket or mall in Petaling Jaya and was abandoned for new project and today it collapsed after demolition operations went awry.

Section 14 Jaya Supermarket Collapsed
The landmark Jaya Supermarket building in Section 14 in Petaling Jaya collapsed after demolition operations went awry Thursday afternoon

PETALING JAYA: The abandoned Jaya Supermarket in Section 14 here collapsed after demolition operations went awry on Thursday evening.

Part of the four-storey building, a landmark of the city, collapsed at about 4:45pm, trapping nine Indonesian construction workers. Others working at the site managed to escape.

The Fire and Rescue Department received a distress call at 5:08pm and about 50 firemen immediately rushed to the scene.

Section 14 Jaya Supermarket Collapsed

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Soiman Jahid said the first worker was pulled out of the rubble at 5:45pm and followed by the second about fifteen minutes later.

The two injured victims Suriono, 31, and Salleh, 45 were sent to the University of Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).

Rescue workers also recovered the body of a construction worker at 6:44pm.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said Suriono was admitted to the emergency ward while Salleh received outpatient treatment.

“The dead victim has been identified as Maskor, 28,” he said at a press conference at the scene.

He said that six more construction workers were still trapped under the debris.

“We are working on the assumption that they are still alive. The search and rescue operation will continue untill all are accounted for,” he said.

A resident living nearby earlier said he had heard trapped workers shouting “Tolong, tolong (Help, help)” for a while, but there was only silence now.

One trapped worker apparently managed to call his boss on his handphone, and rescue workers are trying to trace him.

By nightfall, an operations centre had been set up and spotlights were used to help with the rescue efforts.

Soiman said the rescue operation involves over 150 personnel from his department, police, the Civil Defence Department, Petaling Jaya City Council and others.

“We are using the tracker dogs to search for the remaining victims,’’ he added.

The building has six storeys, including two basement levels. Most of the workers were on the ground and third floors when the incident, whose cause is currently unknown, occurred.

At one stage, the remaining part of the building was teetering dangerously, reporters on the scene said, with bits and pieces still falling off.

However, the Fire and Rescue Department has confirmed that there are no houses nearby and residents were not in danger.

Lucky survivors
An Indonesian worker Mohamad Iksan, 25, who was carrying out drilling operations in the basement, said he ran out immediately after some concrete slabs fell on the ground not far from him.

“Luckily I was near open space and managed to escape. I only realised part of the building had collapsed after I ran out of the building,” he said.

He said he was working with about eight colleagues during the incident and most of them were at the basement and the highest floor.

Andi, 30, who was on the fifth floor of the building, was taking a break with nine other construction workers when the incident happened.

“I was sitting down when I heard the loud sound of wind rushing past. Then the floor started tilting and we just ran for our lives.

“We rushed to the other end of the building. We are lucky to be alive,” said Andi, who had just started working on the construction site 20 days ago.

Rojak seller Faizal Md Yusof, 25, who was at his van nearby, saw the building “goyang” (sway) and then collapse.

“I saw six cranes falling down along with the building. I just left my van and ran for my life,” he said.

His van was located less than 50m from the collapsed building.

Store manager Lee, 37, said she heard loud booming sounds and looked out of her shoe shop to witness the building collapse.

“There is usually some noise from the construction. When I heard the loud noise, I knew something big fell but I never thought that the whole building would collapse,” she said.

Rebates for regular LDP users – Good or Bad?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009 4,468 views

It’s seems to be good news for me but I only use RM1.60 + RM1.60 * 2 everyday to Cyberjaya so it will be RM3.20*2*5*4 = RM128 so no rebate for me. =(

Is it a good news for you or none of your business? haha. They should have just reduce the toll rate to RM1.50 at least I also can save some peanut.

The rebate is also very tedious just look at the T&C, you need to go register your Touch n’ go card and then register with litrak. Then rebate need to do it at Touch n’ go hub. Wah so many procedure and need to waste more time and petrol so is it feasible? So what if I’m using my Smart Tag with Zing Touch n’ go which is auto reload?

Rebates for regular LDP users

Rebates for regular LDP users

PETALING JAYA: Those who frequently ply the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP) can look forward to special rebates under the newly-launched Frequent Travellers Programme.

Cash users will be given a free Touch ’n Go card worth RM15, including a RM10 load value, if they provide RM50 worth of LDP receipts collected within a month.

Existing Touch ’n Go or SmartTAG users who spend at least RM200 a month will be eligible for a free 20% reload bonus when they top up.

Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said the programme was timely given the current economic slowdown.

“This example should be followed by all highway operators in an effort to make highway users a priority,” he said in his speech at the launch of the programme read out by the ministry’s secretary-general Datuk Thomas George.

Shaziman called on all highway operators to rejuvenate the quality of service given to highway users.

Toll rates, he said, should not be burdensome and priority should be given to what users want and need.

“This will ensure that the quality of service is on par with the toll rates being charged.”

He urged operators to play a more active role in carrying out their corporate social responsibility to help reduce the burden on motorists.

LDP concessionaire Lingkaran Trans Kota Holdings Bhd (Litrak) chairman Tan Sri Dr Wan Abdul Rahman Wan Yaacob said they wanted to reduce the burden of highway users who frequently used the highway.

“As part of our corporate social responsibility, we will also be spending RM300mil for congestion mitigation work, which will begin in the third quarter of this year,” he said in his speech read out by Litrak executive director Yusoff Daud.

Kris Allen takes the 'American Idol' title – American Idol Winner

Thursday, May 21st, 2009 2,294 views

Kris Allen

Although I didn’t catch up with American Idol but a lot of ppl actually took leave to watch it live?! Did you watch American Idol?

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kris Allen’s smooth vocals and boy-next-door image propelled him to “American Idol” victory Wednesday, turning the theatrical powerhouse Adam Lambert into the most unlikely of also-rans.

“I’m sorry, I don’t even know what to feel right now. This is crazy,” said a stunned Allen, 23, of Conway, Arkansas.

As host Ryan Seacrest said in announcing the result of the viewer vote, “The underdog, the dark horse, comes back and wins the nation over.”

American Idol
The Star’s R.AGE team gave a minute-by-minute update of the American Idol Season 8 results show on Thursday morning. CLICK on the image above to view the live blogchat.

Lambert’s commanding vocal range and stage presence – and the judges’ adoration of him – at times turned “Idol” into “The Adam Lambert Show,” with the other contestants mere guests. But it turned out that “Idol” viewers could embrace a gifted performer like Lambert, one who sported black nail polish and bold self-assurance, only to a point.

Simon Cowell tipped his hat to both contestants Wednesday.

“To both of you, and I don’t normally mean this, I thought you were both brilliant. …. The future’s all yours,” the judge said.

Before the results were announced, Lambert and Allen had a moment of musical camaraderie: They joined together with Queen on the rock anthem “We Are the Champions.”

“Adam did win. So did Kris. Nobody lost tonight. These are two champions,” said Paul Stanley from Kiss backstage.

The comments from Cowell and Stanley aren’t necessarily empty platitudes. Past contestants can testify that losing the title doesn’t mean you’re a loser, nor does winning mean you’re a shoo-in for superstardom.

Chris Daughtry and Jennifer Hudson, who finished fourth and seventh in their respective seasons, have gone on to huge success. As for “Idol” winners, they range from blockbuster artists like Carrie Underwood to the mostly under-the-radar Taylor Hicks.

Wednesday’s outcome echoed last year’s contest, which looked like it was going the other way. Cowell all but crowned David Archuleta after the performance finale, calling his a “knockout performance” _ but the victory went to David Cook.

Lambert was such a powerful, unique performer that his fans were allowed a sense of entitlement on his behalf. But his triumph wasn’t inevitable. When Allen and Lambert were declared the finalists last week, just 1 million viewer votes separated the pair out of 88 million cast.

Allen bloomed during the season, gaining more assurance onstage and winning viewers over with his heartfelt vocals, modest demeanor and well-scrubbed good looks. He also scored big with his singer-songwriter arrangement of the Kanye West song “Heartless,” subbing sharp, syncopated guitar playing and crisp vocals for the original’s autotune voice and electronic beats.

There was also the Danny Gokey factor. Gokey made it to the top three before he fell out of the contest, leaving his supporters up for grabs.

“After the third one leaves, you wonder where do the votes go from that third contestant,” Paula Abdul said backstage after Tuesday’s singing showdown.

Allen seemed the likely candidate for those viewers’ affections, for on- and offstage reasons. Allen and Gokey, 29, of Milwaukee, were downright conservative when compared to Lambert’s elaborate staging and off-the-wall wardrobe choices. Allen is a married college student and has worked as a church worship leader. Gokey, a widower, is a church music director.

Lambert, 27, of Los Angeles, brought measured rock flashiness _ daring, not freaky – with songs including “Whole Lotta Love,” the first-ever Led Zeppelin tune on “Idol.” He’s largely kept his personal life under wraps, saying “I know who I am” when asked.

Earlier this week, Allen said he hoped the outcome wouldn’t be decided by “having the Christian vote.”

“I hope it has to do with your talent and the performance that you give and the package that you have. It’s not about religion and all that kind of stuff,” he said.

Added Lambert: “It’s about music. That’s really important to keep in mind.”

Allen rose to the occasion during Tuesday’s performance show, especially with his soulful version of “Ain’t No Sunshine.” But he was tripped up by “No Boundaries,” an upper-register belting ballad co-written by judge Kara DioGuardi that was ill-suited to his voice.

Lambert did a better job with “No Boundaries” and excelled on his reprise of “Mad World” and on “A Change is Gonna Come.”

“That was the best I’ve ever heard you sing – ever!” exclaimed Abdul.

The finale Wednesday included the usual bag of tricks for extending the show to two hours. There were group numbers, the Golden Idol Award – semifinalist funnyman Nick “Norman Gentle” Mitchell among the contenders – and celebrity-contestant combos.

Allen was joined by Keith Urban on “Kiss a Girl,” while Lambert stomped the stage in elevator boots and oversized ribbed shoulder pads for a pyrotechnic performance with Kiss. The female finalists, including Allison Iraheta, opened up for Fergie, who sang “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and then was joined by her group, the Black Eyed Peas.

Iraheta later dueted with Cyndi Lauper on “Time After Time” and Danny Gokey joined Lionel Richie for two tunes.

Rod Stewart sang “Maggie May” after the male finalists opened for him with “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy.”

An offbeat guest was Steve Martin, the actor-comedian and fine banjo player in his own right. He played his song “Pretty Flowers” with finalists Megan Joy and Michael Sarver on vocals.

Asked by Seacrest to guess who might win “American Idol,” Martin replied: “I know it’s a long shot, but I’m hoping I do.” – AP

I didn’t drink much as it’s not good to drink and drive, safety come 1s. =)

It is with this in mind that we have launched the LG Blog which complements our corporate website,” said Mr TY Ko, Managing Director and CEO of LG Electronics (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

LG Party Dance… Enjoy.

Comments about the Angels and Devils… Enjoy.

Best Dress Winner…

Mira from Redmummy.com
Mira from Redmummy.com won “The Most Wicked Devil” Award as her dress and outlook was no doubt the most wicked in the party. The moment she stepped into the party, everyone knew she was going home with this award and so did the judges. She brought home an LG 32” Full HD LCD TV for her marvelous display of wickedness of a devil.

Kim Ong from kimong.com won ‘The Purest Angel’ Award as she gracefully displayed her angelic moves on stage capturing the hearts of the judges. She brought home an LG 32” Full HD LCD TV for her angelic outfit and personality.

Jovi from Hengjovi.blogspot.com
Jovi from Hengjovi.blogspot.com came to the party with face paint along with his mum’s mascara on his face. Donning a black cape and some handmade skull chain, he was awarded “The Out-of-Place Devil” Award and walked home with a brand new LG Cookie mobile phone.

Jolyn Goh from lilmejo.com came all the way from Penang just to attend the party. She came as a Harajuku Angel which the judges all agreed that she deserved “The Confused Angel” Award. For that, she won herself an LG Cookie mobile phone to bring home to Penang.

Contestant
He did not get home anything. Pity him as I guess it must be damn hot inside and the rental for this costume not cheap?
