Alternative Fuel

Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob rode a bicycle from Kuching Hilton to Kuching Waterfront to attend a function on Monday.

You can bet that whatever these guys are doing, it's for a half-day show only. They'll come back tomorrow in their Mercedes Benz.

But seriously, cycling to work has always been something which I've thought of from time to time. The ridiculous fuel price hike is making this to be a very attractive idea.

But then again, with the kind of weather that we have here, this is just unrealistic. When it rains here, it's like God flushing the toilet. And when the sun comes out, we feel like a cookie in the oven.

I've thought about it, and the more I thought about it, the more this is beginning to look like a stupid idea.

Well, for one, cycling under the Malaysian sun is gonna make you look like this.

You're not only gonna sweat like Hasselhoff, but you're gonna smell like him as well.

And one more thing, when you reach the office, you gotta shower man. you gotta get rid of that Hasselhoff smell. That means bringing your soap & towel & shampoo & clothes to change into. I don't know about showering at the office. It feels kinda wierd. If you do it more often, then pretty soon you'll be moving into your cubicle & living there.

Guess what? I just heard. The petrol stations in Kuching are packed with cars again tonite, right now. There's a rumour going around that all stations will be on strike from Thursday to Saturday & will not be open.
The BN government needs to come out with a better solution soon. Otherwise, this may start to look like a very intelligent idea.

Wallop a can of baked beans & you're ready to go!

IF that happens, I wouldn't know what's worst, CO2 fumes or baked beans.
