Selangor – No Plastic Bag Day Every Saturday

Saturday, January 30th, 2010 5,424 views

No Plastic Bag Day

No Plastic Bag Day / Hari Tana Beg Plastik Selangor / 无塑料袋日

Following Penang foodsteps, now Selangor implements “No Plastic Day” every Saturday. Effective Jan 1, a “No Plastic Bag Day” would be observed every Saturday and retailers and shopping centres throughout the state were urged to reduce the use of plastic bags.

I believe this is a very good and positive move by the government to educate our citizen to care about our mother nature. Today is the last Saturday of the month where Selangor started “No Plastic Bag Day”, I believe most ppl already know / aware of the campaign, some of my friends even tell me I will not go shopping today because no plastic bag and will shop tomorrow? This is not supposed to be the way right? Haha what’s the purposed of “No Plastic Bag Day” then?

Selangor - No Plastic Bag Day Every Saturday

Selangor - No Plastic Bag Day Every Saturday

There’s a lot of buntings and posters about “No Plastic Bag Day” placed at major shopping centers. If you request for a plastic bag, you will be charged 20 sen per bag.

For me, will not be affected because everytime I buy something I request them not to give me plastic bag but if you were to shop for groceries (impossible to carry all the groceries in your hand), I would suggest you to bring your own Recycle Bag / reusable shopping bag 環保袋, save our earth for the better future.

Woots! Malaysia’s World No.1 Datuk Lee Chong Wei beat Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana in Malaysia Open Finals at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil. Lee Chong Wei won 21-13, 21-7 in just 35 mins. This was Chong Wei sixth Malaysian Open badminton title. I would say it’s an easy match for Chong Wei and he played with confident and outplayed Ponsana.

Koo Kien Keat / Tan Boon Heong have beaten another China pair today in the finals after eliminating the younger China pair yesterday at semi finals. It was a tough rubber games with the China pair Zhendong GUO / Chen XU.

The China pair was good at attacking leaving KKK / TBH in defensive styles but after some guidance by Rexy, they went attacking all the way and finally Malaysia won and it was also due to the massive support by the audience! Kien Keat and Boon Heong even threw their racquets to the audiences! Arghh… too bad can’t manage to grab it. Koo Kien Keat / Tan Boon Heong won 21-15, 17-21, 21-16 in almost 1 hour.

Hardcore Indonesia Badminton Supporter, a bit irritating la, when Malaysia playing Kacau saja…

Few things that disappoint me:-
1) They over sell the tickets for LT Premium which resulted some of the audiences seat along the stairway. If emergency or some unforeseen circumstances happened, then we might be stuck in the stadium and the consequences will be bad.

2) It was heavy rain outside, but it’s drizzling inside the hall. What does that mean? Yes, it’s leaking. Please fix it and yet once again we proofed that “Malaysia Boleh”. Luckily the rain drops / leak was at audience area if it’s in the court area then what a shame. So I was forced to wear rain coat at all time during the matches. Imagine that!

3) Rubbish everywhere leaving behind at the stadium. Please clear your own mess ppl!

Rubbish
Can you see that? Isn’t it an eyesore to you?

Jan O JORGENSEN
Jan O JORGENSEN – Shhhshhh… do not disturb me ok!?! At last he also lost to Tien Minh NGUYEN from Vietnam in just two game. This guy from Vietnam actually quite good and he beat Lee Chong Wei before. Will Lee Chong Wei and Tien Minh NGUYEN meet again in finals?

Naza Kia Forte Owner Gathering @ Desa Park City

Forte Front View

Last Sunday, a bunch of Forte owner and soon to be owner were gathered at Kluang Station Waterfront Desa Park City. It was a nice Sunday morning where everyone would like to ZzZZzZzzzz more but I sacrificed for my love, Forte. Gathering started from 10am-1pm, so I need to get up around 9 plus which is like a torture for me as Sunday not a working day and supposed to sleep till noon and till the sun beam my butt only get up. Haha.

When I reached Kluang Station there’s no one there… and I don’t see any Forte at the front or Car Park 1… so I was wondering am I at the right place for the gathering. I’m a soon to be Forte owner and the reason I join in this Forte Owner TT was that I would like to meet the owners and get some feedback, comments, tips and check out the lovely Forte in a big group.

So I thought maybe those Forte were parked at the Car Park 2, so I walk to check it out and was happy to see so many Forte parked there. The view was awesome. So colorful as there’s White Forte, Titanium Silver Forte, Bright Silver Forte, Spicy Red Forte, Black Forte… Really wish my Forte was with me =(

Then we had a Chit Chat / Teh Tarik (TT) session at Kluang Station and yeah all the Forte owners were really friendly. Awesome bunch of ppl. Some asking about Car Tinting (AirCool, 3M, SafeTint, TintMaster), Car Rim (16″/17″), Fuel Efficiency, Car handling, PPS / Sierra Glow (Additional layer to protect car paint) etc, but it’s really a nice catch up with everyone. We try out the heat at all the different car with different tint after the car parked under the sun for quite sometime and I actually don’t feel much different between tinted and the non-tinted Forte! =p

Then we start to camwhore with the lovely Fortesss! Check out the camwhore photo below…

Comment by Phelix :

for me, forte is really comfort car, NVH is good.. on par with civic. FC wise really depends.. this car gives good FC when u r on highway.. as low as 6l/100km.. but when u stuck in jam… FC increase slowly.. i see it from 8.6l/100km increased to 11.2l/100km.. despite about resell value.. forte gives best of bang.. guaranteed.

maintenance wise.. most of them choose synthetic oil but i go for mineral.. performance wise slightly better (u can feel it after u serviced ur car, try it.. haha).
and overall till now, after my friend viewed my car only give thumbs up.

Comment by Julian :

1. Why did you choose to buy the Forte?
Its an excellent-value-for money product with many great features and very importantly its safety features. Oh yes..its got the looks too, super cool and sleek design! For the money I’m paying, this Forte is definitely worth it, if not more. It’s just brilliant, a class on its own! In short…its beauty, style and power which is my Forte.

2. What do you like most of the Forte?
Can i say there’s nothing I don’t like? Hahaha… I love the Push Start button! It’s so cool! And, the overall design and safety features. When I took my Forte home for the first time, my good neighbour came over and gave it the 2-thumbs up! Makes me so proud of my Forte. To be honest, I’m no car enthusiast, thus, car engines and the works are like rocket science to me. Hahaha… Thus, I’d like to reserve my comments on these but from what I read from the reviews, forums, etc.. However, I’d like to add that after having this ‘baby’ for 1 month, I’ve no doubt about its performance and drivability.
