07.01.2012 | 如同虛設

[Volume 7 Issue 1, #1286]
發現某車站居然安裝咗呢個(尚未啟用嘅)電子巴士班次顯示器.. 係就係非常之靚仔兼且令人振奮, 但係身為馬來西亞人嘅我哋, 其實心裡已經知道一團糟嘅公共交通系統, 突然殺出呢個高科技產品有鬼用咩?? 又唔係如同虛設, 難道安裝之後可以改善咩??嘥氣~~
noticed this (not yet operating) electronic bus schedule signboard installed at a bus station.. though it looks so handsome and impressive, but being malaysians we already know with such a messy public transport system, how much a sudden installation of high-tech gadget can help?? just so superfluous and expecting it to improve things?? forget about it~~

  1. true that. Unless enforcement are done to ensure the bus follows the schedule, it will just be a "white elephant" :P

  4. It's just an excuse to give out contracts to cronies. Don't you think so?

    When do our public transport ever been on time?

  5. Before they install all these money wasting gadgets, they should improve on how to discipline the drivers first and get the public transport to be on time! @.@

  7. I suppose the intent of this is to give the public a guide as to the times - which is a good thing. Timeliness is not part of the board game(?)

    You are so observant, SK. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @linawell, we all know the reason behind everything that was done!! you have just mentioned that in your comment above.. haiz!! they don't care, because they are not the one who suffer..

  14. @HappySurferwhat is the purpose of spending that money when the schedule will never match with the display?? it is just so ironic the time of arrival is blinking and yet you are still waiting for another 30 minutes before the supposed-to-arrived bus arrives..

    ReplyDelete
  15. @HappySurferyeah, i like this too.. it's developed by somebody with some extra javascripts.. not really a perfect one but i like it simple.. you can go to this website for the installation instruction, it's easy!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Kian Fai Koherrr, maybe telling us the bus arriving in 5 minutes, but after waiting for another 30 minutes, still cannot see the bus coming lor!! this will be 90% the possibility~~ hahaha!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, they got this high tech electronic gadget at bus station? Like airport, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haven't been to any bus station long enough... Didn't know how they turn out now....

    The last ride on KL pink bus gave me nightmares.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's mean not only their driving skill suck, the schedule is the same - messy and not puncture.

    ReplyDelete
  26. $$$ useless investment, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Heya SK.. here I am from my "No when to Blog Hop" routine LOL

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh Lucky you guys you have this high tech gadget,... we, we don't have any ... sigh what a shame for us LOL

    ReplyDelete
  29. We have lots of corrupt officials here and all they know is to use the country's money for their own sake

    ReplyDelete
  30. anyway, as for me I think there are more useful and senseful projects that our government should prioritize other than putting high end gadgets like this...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh is that you on the header?? you have a tattoo?? me I want to get one too.. is it really painful? maybe i should go for a hena first LOL

    ReplyDelete
  32. After a while sure rosak and no maintenance lah....

    ReplyDelete
  33. hahaha...这都给你弹啊,人家要制造点经济机会才可以养活整个国家的人啦,你就多体谅点嘛。。。

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow not bad! Got a bit of improvement, although I'm like you, doubtful that it's FUNCTIONAL .. maybe just for show :P Let's all see!

    ReplyDelete
  35. 如同虚设
    应该改善的是根本的问题吧
    嗯 这个对策不被接受
    This countermeasure is been rejected。
    In company with ISO certified always deal with
    all kind of "countermeasure" and I believe preventive action is needed....
    职业病....

    ReplyDelete
  38. @yvonneyou are right!! i've no comments to their driving skills but their driving attitude, no comments on the schedule but the reliability~~ haiz!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. @yvonnehaiyah, waste the people's money so that those people can earn more money lor..

  41. @小雪謝謝你, 我終於找到"如同虛設"這個最貼切的詞了, 看到你的留言後, 立刻也把標題改了, 哈哈!! 對呀, 每次都是表面上的東西, 問題的根本就完全不理會的, 可悲!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Casendra哈哈!! 制造點經濟機會才可以养活整个國家的人?? 我覺得是養活"某些家庭的人"才是比較正確的事實吧??

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Peteexactly!! that's the problem, they only introduce new things (to earn money) but never (spend money to) maintain things!! sad~~

    ReplyDelete
  44. @iamthewitcherrr, it's nice to see that thing, but let's wait and see, perhaps just working for the first 3 months, then out of order and left it unmaintained there~~

    ReplyDelete
  45. @bluedreamer27errr, it's just something there not functioning yet.. well it looks impressive but i doubt the usefulness and reliability of that thing though..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @bluedreamer27oh, i think we have the same problem here.. so sad right??

    ReplyDelete
  47. @bluedreamer27in my opinion, be it high tech or low tech, i think more importantly is to solve the problem from the root cause.. any superfluous solution will never help at all.. there should be long term strategic planning and management in all projects they undertake..

    ReplyDelete
  48. @bluedreamer27haha, you are really observant!! yeah, that was me, the tattoo is a fake one, it faded off two weeks later, hahahaha~~

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  57. I wish that I could commute by LRT to everywhere without using my car but I cannot! Our LRT routes are so limited!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I always thought these signboards are reliable like airport Departure/Arrival Schedule...maybe this is expected in Malaysia.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 哈哈哈~~~即使装上去,又会有多少个人注意哩?不如改善服务,降低收费,惠及大众更实际!呵呵呵~~~
