Top Case Motorsikal – Satu Aksesori Keselamatan

Kelmarin beli sebuah top case untuk motorsikal. Masa mula-mula dulu top case ni popular di kalangan pengguna motorsikal di Singapura sebelum masuk ke Malaysia. Sekarang kebanyakan top case ni menjadi opsyen kepada pemilik motorsikal untuk dipasang pada motorsikal masing-masing.

Mungkin top case ni semakin menjadi keperluan memandangkan kes kecurian kecil-kecilan terhadap barang yang disimpan di raga motorsikal semakin berleluasa. Apa sahaja yang diletakkan dalam raga motorsikal yang terdedah itu berisiko hilang.

Top Case1Sekiranya barang yang diletakkan di dalam raga motor itu diambil orang maka ia berpunca dari kelalaian pemilik. Ini kerana apa sahaja yang mempunyai sedikit nilai pasti menarik perhatian orang yang ada niat untuk mengambilnya, sama ada untuk dijual dengan harga murah atau sememangnya tabiatnya mengambil harta benda orang lain.

Terpaksalah saya invest membeli satu unit top case ini. Syukur aku membelinya pada masa yang tepat (bagi akulah) sebab dapat stok lama. Harga satu unit yang aku beli ialah RM150. Pada hari pertama semasa ditanya itulah harga yang ditulis pada unit berkenaan dan pekedai kurang cuma RM10.00. Kira OK lah sebab dah tanya kedai lain dicakapnya RM200 lebih.

Namun pada hari pertama tidak dapat beli sebab tidak ada rack untuk pasang pada motorsikal sebagai tempat meletak top case. Di suruhnya aku datang hari keesokannya sebab dia nak order dulu rack itu.

Hari kedua pergi, diberitahu rack belum dapat. So, aku pergi sendiri mencari di kedai-kedai motor yang lain dan memperolehinya di sebuah kedai motorsikal yang menjual spare parts motorsikal di Bandar Jitra. Satu unit rack tersebut berharga RM45.00.

Pada ketika yang nampak juga harga top case yang dipamerkan dalam kedai tersebut yang bermula dengan RM220.00 pastinya harga baru.

Selepas pasang supporting rack, aku bali semula ke kedai pertama tadi untuk pasang pula top case. Settle.

Semasa membayar pekedai itu cakaplah harga iaitu RM150.00 dan aku pertikai yang dia telah kurangkan menjadi RM140.00 semasa kali pertama bertanya. Alasan yang diberikan untuk tidak mengurangkannya ialah kerana upah pasang. Kalaulah aku tahu dia ambik upah pasang, pastinya aku beli dan balik pasang sendiri top case itu kerana sememangnya ia boleh DIY dan boleh jimat RM10 untuk bawa anak isteri makan nasi lemak dan teh tarik. Tapi aku rasa bukan upah pasang yang menjadi alasannya, sebaliknay sebab harga top box itu sudah meningkat, jadi pekedai itu hendak mendapat untung extra sahaja. Memanglah RM10.00 sekarang tidak tinggi nilainya tetapi di kawasan Jitra ni masih boleh makan sampai kenyang lagi.

Harga top case sekarang juga sudah naik dan bezanya sampai RM70.00 dari harga lama, jika diambil kira top case yang aku beli itu dengan harga yang baru.

Selepas ada top case ni rasa selamat sedikit jika hendak menyimpan barang-barang kecil dan kurang nilainya seperti baju hujan, buku nota dan pen dan sebagainya walaupun jika orang hendak mencuri boleh mencungkilnya. Sekurang-kurangnya aku sudah berusaha untuk melindungi harta benda aku dan selebihnya aku tawakkal kepada Allah.

Selepas ada top case ni bolehlah maybe aku nak travel mana-mana secara backpacking kot untuk mencari bahan tulis blog.

Things Happen Due To Carelessness?

Two things happens at home maybe due to negligence or maybe not being careless.

1. The fully automatic washing machine which is still under warranty did not work properly. It stops and can’t drain the water after the wash. Well, of course machines do get damaged or stops working after sometimes. A lot reason can be related to it.

Since it is still under warranty, I took out the warranty card to look for the technical service phone number. However, together with the warranty card, there;s also the user manual. I did browse through the manual and under the tittle “Before calling for service” I read to find out what might be the problem. The word drainage caught my eye and upon checking the washing the machine, I found the problem. The outlet hose was not let loose but stick it to the machine’s cover. Since the the hose outlet is above water level, of course water will not drain out. Problem one solved.

2. Another problem due to carelessness was with the gas stove. I bought a new table top cooking stove since the one I had been using for years had a malfunctioned burner knob. After unpacking, I fixed the hose and hoping to get the stove to working. Clicks after clicks on the burner knob did not work. Solution? Take it back to the store. Easy uh?

While I removed the rubber hose from the stove’s gas injector tube,  I checked the rubber hose, and realise that the hose is blocked. It was the plastic cover on the gas injector tube that I did not remove when I fixed the hose before. No wonder it was so tight when I pushed the rubber hose onto it.

I cut off part of the hose and fixed it again. And of course it works. The problem was the plastic cover from the gas inlet tube blocks the gas flow. Problem solved.

If I were to take the stove back to the store, the technicians might have their laugh of the day. It was just carelessness that gets things in a mess. I learnt a lesson

The property agent was smart enough the bundle the house and the owner as a package. This is the story that was posted on therakyatpost.

 

Lamido Service As Good As Pos Laju

Recently I sent a consignemt to my daughter in Subang Jaya from Jitra through Pos Laju and was surprised it took 5 days to reach. Its Subang Jaya not some remotest area in Malaysia. The Jamin Sampai Esok is just a useless tagline to be used by a courier company that promise fast delivery. After reaching the delivery office it took another 2 days to be delivered as if the distance of Puchong and Subang Jaya is as far as between Kuala Lumpur and Antartica.

When the consignment reached its destination this is what it looks repacked into the Pos Laju’s “body bag”.

Thats Pos Laju story. Di Jamin Sampai Esok.

In early September I made an order of a powerbank from one of the most popular online site in Malaysia, Lazada. The order was made through Lamido who sell the product. I made the order on 9th September 2014

lamido1

and made the payment on

lamido3

on 14th September and sent the confirmation through their Whatsapps account on the same day but have not heard anything from them until 17th September after I sent an email to them. The reply was Whatsapps and Line was down and I have to send the payment slip to their email which I did.

 

After that there is no news from Lamido or Lazada about my order and I sent another Whatsapps message on 26th September. Until I post this entry, the delivery man has not arrive at my doorstep.

Lamido promised within 2-3 working days and now it has taken nearly half a month. Personally to me Lazada and Lamido customer service is also as good  as Pos Laju in term of fast delivery.
