Monday Traffic Jam

I know this is a Monday but this is ridiculous. Chances are, there something in KL which is causing this huge traffic jam. Even my friends travelling at the Federal Highway also experienced this. If this has something to do with the stupid Weekend PROTES, then it makes me feel very violent towards these groups. I see no point in going to KL, causing a jam there, also
running at the risk of being arrested just for the fun of shouting slogans, holding placards and getting your usgly face taken in the hopes of being in the papers the next day (or wanted photos).

So, what's the high in this? Lets say, you're in the papers and your colleagues read about it. Would they see you as a Hero? How about your immediate Supervisors? How would they see it? A troublemaker? A very vocal staff? Maybe at the canteen, you will be congratulated and you will feel like a Superstar. Then, the latest news reported at least 50 people were arrested.
How would you feel by now? A wanted criminal? The month of December and January are usually where staff would be appraised, getting their bonuses and maybe a pay rise. So, what are your chances of getting them now? You should have thought about this before doing such things, you stupid moron.

There are other ways to protest about the rising prices. But of course, such weekend parties like this would not work. Its not even coordinated country-wide even. The effect is like you shouting and complaining in Petaling Street that a stall there ripped you off. Yeah, make sure everyone looks at you and also you have an escape plane because the moment everyone turns their
heads, you're on the way to the Hospital. You want to make a lasting effect? Its easy and you can't be arrested for it. Here's how:

For one week, do not:
1) Drive the car, use the bus, or LRT. Get a bike
2) Do not eat out, go to pubs or even shop. Stay at home
3) Don't even switch on the lights, the air-con or even take a bath
4) Go to work but work like a Government staff
5) You can buy some foodstuff but not too much, just enough to survive for a week.
6) Don't even bother to use your mobile phone unless you are in a life and Death situation. Then again, when you're in this situation, using your mobile phone would be the last thing on your mind.

Easy or not? Because, in order to make a mark in this country, you would have to sacrifice your comfortable lifestyle, your habits and more. And you have to make sure your colleagues, neighbours and everyone else is doing this. And if you all cannot achieve this, then it is already a failure. Just for one week, the whole of Malaysia would be in a stand-still. The economy
would go nuts. Then the Government would get off their high horse and take notice.

Protesting at KLCC is just a circus show for clowns, who are looking for short-term solutions and a nice warm jail-cell.

On the way to my Office, the Jalan Duta was jammed up.
So I used the Jalan Duta Toll. Ha ha ha! See the jam on
the other side?

Rats! The exit to Sungei Buloh was jammed up! It took me 20 minutes
to go 20 metres

Now, this is something my FujiFilm Finepix s5500
cannot to. Take a proper rear view mirror picture
