    Occasional Rains at Petaling Jaya

    by machomikemd Written Jun 17, 2014

    Sunway Lagoon Theme Park has two kinds of packages, the all in pass including water park, and the separate attractions pass without the water park. If you belong to the latter, be sure to bring an umbrella or a raincoat as Petaling Jaya area is known for having occasional rain showers all year round, hence it might ruin your park adventure if you are soaking wet!

    if you are in the all pass package, then no problem as you are already wet from the swimming and going around the waterpark.

    4D Outlet in PJ


    This has been around for as long as 30 years. Called the 4D Magnum here's how you play it.

    4D Game is a simple game of chance. To play, you just pick a 4-digit number, or 4D number, from the 10,000 possible numbers of 0000 to 9999. You win when the 4D number you picked matches one or more of the winning 4D numbers drawn by us.

    See, simple right? Well, don't get addicted, thats my only word of advice *grin*

    Don't let it Snap!!

    by st_hannes Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Stop & look, Before you cross the street..

    Ooh.. I once was walking along KFC SS2 to Georgetown Chemists when I saw an Indian lady got dragged to the ground by a snatch-thief on a motorbike.

    I tried to give chase on foot, but my Diadora Space Runner was not a match for their Yamaha SS110..

    So please, gals, DON'T walk alone especially in quiet back-alleys, with your handbags to the side of the traffic.. You might get your bags snapped or worse, your ARMS!

    These people crawl slowly behind you on exhaust pipe-modified bikes so that you don't hear them. Once the have a hold on your bag, they'll speed off yanking your bag in the process.. I have to say, I've seen this happening too often..

    Street vendor alert! Beggar alert!

    by Blique Written Jan 15, 2006

    There are times when you see street vendors selling stuff to you or even 'blind' people or beggars. I'm not saying to be ignorant but at least aware of what they are capable of doing. There are more of these potentional conmen lurking so be careful and act smart when approached.

    Honing To Book !...

    by coceng Written Jan 8, 2004
    Horning to get the spot !

    Another mention about traffics in Petaling Jaya even the rest of Kuala Lumpur...
    When you finally see a spot to park you car, you can see that there are like a few cars already waiting to 'enter' the spot !
    Who comes first...you say ?
    No no no...you HORN (honing...) other cars to let them know that you saw the spot first !
    So,...when somebody is honing you back, maybe...that driver saw that spot first ?
    I always love seeing this scene...

    Sometimes Though...

    by coceng Written Jan 8, 2004
    Almost empty...

    Sometimes though, the roads could be as empty as what you could see on the left...
    In the morning & early evening when people coming back from work, this stretch of road is always full of traffics !...
    This could be said to most areas around Petaling Jaya, especially the housing areas whereas the roads leading to the big shopping complexes, well...they are mostly 'filled-in' at all hours !
    Unless the shopping complex is not doing well business-wise...

    Careful On The Road...

    by coceng Written Jan 8, 2004
    On the roads...

    If you are driving, be careful when being on the road in this area...
    Cars are many, motorbikes are many, lorries are many as well...not to mention people crossing the roads at odd places, cyclists peddle sometimes in the middle of the roads etc.

    Toto Outlet inPJ


    This one's called Sports Toto 4D as well. And this also caters to the lucky Lotto with the millions Jackpot. I love playingthis, but till this very day, I'm yet to strike it rich.... one day.... i'm sure... one day.

    Here's how you play it:

    How To Play Toto 6/42 Jackpot?
    Just pick 6 numbers from 1 to 42. All it takes is just RM1 to win the Jackpot I (minimum RM300,000), Jackpot II and other prizes. Jackpot I & II will snowball if they are not won.

    How to play the 4D?
    Just use your 4 lucky numbers to play Toto 4D! Bet on both Big and Small and you could win bigger prizes. Remember, all prize payments are guaranteed in full! This means the more you buy, the more you could win.

    For major info on this, please visit the link in the site given below. Oh, and good luck again...

    Do Not Litter

    by janettepang Written Nov 13, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although some locals do it, but the regulation is getting increasingly strict over littering. Depending on the area & local council policy, the fine for littering could start from a few hundred Malaysian Ringgits, up to RM5000.

    If children litter, the parents are held responsible & will have to pay the fine anyway.

    What To Watch Out For When Going Out At Night

    by janettepang Written Nov 13, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you go out for a drink at a club/pub/bar, do not leave your drink unattended or accept a drink from a stranger too easily - if you're offered a drink you would not like to refuse, make sure that it's prepared whilst you're watching at the bar & finish it before you walk away ... to the restroom, etc. Drinks could be spiked easily if you're not careful.

    And avoid drugs or pills offered to you in public, especially in nightspots because there are usually raids by police & you could land in serious trouble - possession of drugs/pills & drug trafficking in Malaysia is a serious offence, with jail as minimum punishment, but serious cases leads to the death penalty.

    Never take a lift from a stranger - people around here without motives would not usually stop to pick up people. The ones who do are usually up to something - so unless you're prepared to risk something (being robbed, kidnapped, etc.), then do not consider this at all.

    For ladies with handbags, try to carry those that you can sling across your body .. if you have a shoulder bag, when you're walking on the road, put it on the side of your shoulder that is not nearer to the road (to avoid attracting any snatch thieves that operates on motorcycles). In any case, as with any other places you visit in the world, practise moderation & hang on closer to your valuables.

    When taking cabs at night, especially if you're a lady, make sure the first thing you do is check the taxi driver's i.d. (usually located on the front left of the dashboard) & try to remember a little detail if possible such as a no. plate & name. Do not fall asleep or try to shut your eyes for a short nap whilst waiting to get to your destination because cunning drivers might take you on longer routes, & fake drivers might pose as taxi drivers (to kidnap, rob, etc.). But if you've got a pretty normal ride, don't be surprised if you're charged double (twice of what you see on the taxi meter) if you've travelled after midnight.
