Mat Rempit As Crime Busters?

It seems that Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has run out of ideas on how to combat the rising crime rate and has decided to rope in the mat rempit as crime busters!

The Star 31 Aug 2012

We call the mat rempit nyamuk because they sound exactly like a bunch of annoying mosquitoes when they take off on their kapcai in the wee hours of the morning on our roads in a sad imitation of super bike racing, causing not only a nuisance to themselves but a mortal danger to innocent road users and motorists.

Rightly, Malaysians have little sympathy and respect for them. And we least expect them to be crime busters. But apparently the honourable minister has oodles of respect and admiration for the pests.

Hishammmuddin Hussein did not say how the mat rempit would be used to combat crime and this may not be surprising because he probably does know what he is talking about.

He had merely been quoted to have said that the idea of using mat rempit as crime busters was an out-of-the box thing.

Sure, when you are not sure whether an idea makes sense or not, it is out-of-the-box as in out of any idea of what to do.

I have one not out-of-the-box idea on how to put mat rempit to good use. Since they love smoke and din, they should be recruited into the anti-dengue fogging team. That will provide them all the high they crave for smoke and din and at the same time be doing some good at last!

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
