Finally I dumped my 3-year-old and malfunction Samsung SGH-A800 flip phone (b&w screen) and replaced it with Nokia 6020 today. Cost me nearly RM600, quite hurt. But now I have more toys to play with, video and voice recording, MMS, colour screen, GPRS, and a crappy 0.3 MP camera. In the past, I could not read any MMS and Chinese love messages. Now you may try to send it to me again.
This afternoon I had fun trying the camera in Wisma Merdeka. Now I can get closer to the people. In Sabah, we are already sick of those drivers who drive at 40KM/H at right lane. Compared to big city, Sabah people are relatively s…l…o…w… and they also enjoy making others slow. A lot of jam is not really caused by amount of traffic. Below are the evidences:
1. Blocking the Busy Walkway
It is a common scene that two or more persons stand in the middle of busy walkway or the entrance. They may have a long conversation and hehehaha. Probably they think they have eaten a lot of glass (become transparent). Say sorry sincerely if you walk pass between them coz it is impolite to disrupt their conversation.
2. Seize the Lift!!!
Sabah people are very afraid of lift. They worry that if they enter too slow into the lift, the door will close and smash them into pieces. So they will rush in, without waiting for the people inside to walk out. It is advisable that you stand and get ready behind the door before it opens, otherwise you will be trapped in the lift and can’t get out forever.
3. Ikut Escalator Jika Tidak Memotong
Sabah people who first time travel in big city such as Hong Kong will kena marah if they use the escalator. There is an unwritten rule that the people on the escalator should let one side of the lane totally clear, for those who want to rush. The principal is just same as the road that has right lane as highway. In Sabah, we got plenty of time to waste. Take it easy ok.
