Marketing Rounds – Functional Specs

October 26, 2016


The photo was taken at Puchong Prima LRT station. I can imagine how the specs were written.

pg 10: “The station shall have a fence separating it from playing field next door, complete with barbwire to prevent unauthorized entry…”

pg 513, para 1.a.ii.1): “The road entrance to the station car park shall not have any obstruction, including a gate, to stop any persons from entering at will..”

Go figure.

Safety Moment – Clash of Utilities

September 4, 2013

What do you think of this?

  • Good point – LRT extension
  • Bad point – LRT right of way is above a PETRONAS Gas Berhad pipeline. As far as I can tell, there have been no warnings to residents what to do if the crap hits the fan, evacuation paths, contact numbers, Twitter accounts, offshore bank accounts…

With all the piling work, earthworks and heavy machinery in the near future, can you spell ‘disaster waiting to happen’?PGB_LRT_0002 PGB_LRT_0001

It says its a “a social mobile application providing free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road. 100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets. Join the community of drivers in your area today!” The more you use it, the better info I get in planning my journey round KL, and hopefully the rest of Malaysia
