Faulty car parking meters in Uptown Damansara

A motorist who was visiting Uptown Damansara for an appointment was disappointed on being fined for the parking offence of no fault of his. If you are facing the same issue, refers to the Malaysia Digest: Why Is MBPJ Issuing Fines To Motorists When Parking Meters Are Faulty? (

MBPJ offered a solution to members of the public when faced with similar issues:

According to Zainun, if there are faulty parking meters, motorists should file their complaints through MBPJ and following these steps – specifying the serial number of the machine along with its exact location, to ease the process of taking the next necessary actions.

Zainun further added that an agreement has been made between the council and the operator to provide maintenance to the parking meters.

“If the parking meters are faulty, the operator will have to fix it and send a report to us. Usually, during the process of fixing the faulty machines, we will not issue compounds to motorists,” she clarified

Zainun also questioned the authenticity of such claims going around about the faulty parking meters adding, “If there is a problem, the complainants should provide us with proof.”

When asked the frequency of the maintenance checks for the parking meters by Godell, Zainun responded that checks are handled by a different department.

Nevertheless, she assures following the complaints received by the council with regards to the faulty parking meters, the council will engage Godell to resolve these issues.

“Should we receive complaints about faulty parking meters, MBPJ will ask Godell to conduct an investigation and repair these machines, then send a report to us,” she concluded.

While we hope MBPJ is constantly on its operator’s toes to resolve the issue that is inconveniencing the public, we hope the public will also do their part in lodging official complaints addressed to the council to ensure that the right enforcement will take place effectively.

New fusion restaurant at Jalan SS21/56B, Damansara Utama

The Skippys Pizza Restaurant got a good write up today at the Star newspaper, Skipping into niche market brings success. Apparently the restaurant started first as a food delivery, then when it got popular they started a restaurant at Phileo Damansara and started the Uptown branch in December 2015.

Dinner at BBQ MA EUL KOREAN Restaurant

Had dinner at BBQ MA EUL KOREAN Restaurant last weekend. Large crowd, looks very popular, had to queue for a table. Had one of their barbecue set, forgot what. Forgot to take photos. Wished I had. Wanted to show the burned meat. Opinions says burnt meat is not healthy, carcinogenic. Would I visit again. I think no despite the apparent popularity. But may go again for the kim chee. Apparently you can ask for refill.

Nasi Tanpa Lemak at My Mum's Kitchen

We Malaysians all know what is Nasi Lemak, rice with coconut milk (santan or more specifically, fat) and it touted as an unhealthy meal with people labeling it as cholesterol laden. So have you heard of Nasi Tanpa Lemak (rice without santan)? You can get it at My Mum's Kitchen.

The piece of chicken I got was drumstick and the rice is brown rice. Pretty healthy I would say. Not many restaurant serves brown rice. Here is a photo of Nasi Tanpa Lemak (apologies, had a spoonful of rice only then did I remembered to take a photo):

So how was the Nasi Tanpa Lemak? Pretty good I would say. And my co-diners opinion? Good. Worth a second or even third visit.

Here is a photo of Nasi Tanpa Lemak with Fried Chicken on a big big plate:
