Received this email from a weekend guest Zaharudin Taib:
Just to share our catches at Glenmarie Cove. Actually there are still plenty of fish stock in the area. We normally spent only 1 hour of fishing and hardly come home empty handed.
Here are the pictures to prove his point:
Keep it up Zahar!
Meanwhile, at the entry and exit gates:
As the readers are probably the cheapest in the market, we have to be pretty close to the reader for it to work. The pillars of the boom gates are on the road and I find that I have to swerve away from it to avoid damage to my car. Is it just me or do others have a problem as well? Anyway, I have requested GCD to relocate the pillar on to the floor of the (capsized) boat house which should be easy to do. The question is how long will it take?
Finally, received this email from a resident:
Let me share this; Previously or initially when I had this problem (no one collect my grass eventhough it’s nicely pack and place near the dustbin), i confronted the rubbish collector( before MPK) and was told that their contract was only to collect food waste and nothing else. The collection of gardening waste was by another contractor (the chinese lorry driver if you all noticed). Ok, so when i spoken to this ‘grass contractor”, he told me that his contract does not cover my street (Damar Bayu 4B)!!…This was confirmed by Guna then and after the normal bashing ##**!! it was collected. Now both contractors are no longer with GCD…lets see what will happen next.
This post has the schedule for the MPK contractors. Please bear in mind the contractor for the removal of garden debris (your grass cuttings) comes only twice a month. The household (food) waste contractor will not touch your black bags lying outside the bin. Try putting it in the bin if it is not too much.
If you cut the grass just after the contractor has been around, your bags may be there for up to 14 days. Thus it is good to know the timetable for this contractor which I began asking for 45 days ago. I asked Bala again yesterday (for the third time, at least) and the positive news I can share is we should have the answer by the 20th time of asking.
The Chinaman and his crew are gone forever unless we do a deal with him (or another contractor) that we will have to pay for. GCD has terminated their services within the precincts for good. Meanwhile, the weeds are growing on the divider from the boat house to P2. The MPK-appointed contractor for this ‘persiaran’ is still MIA.
We will address the issue of supplementing the garden/landscaping services along with the management of security services by the GCROA. More on this at a later date.
Have a good weekend.
