F*ck YOU Sg.G'bai~ Malaysia Boleh!

7 Febuary 2010 - Just reached home from Sg.Gabai, Hulu Langat empty handed and disappointed!
The initial plan - Photo taking session with Tianchad and his new babeh - Nikon D90~
Tianchad and his colleague, Matthew reached my house around 930 in the morning and we head to Hulu Langat for breakfast before proceeding to Sg.Gabai~

The 1st 4 photo below was taken on 26 June 2009~

These 3 photos are taken today~ Why no waterfall shots?

We paid RM1 for each person as entrance fees and headed towards the waterfall happily! Until we were stopped by this money faced cikopek! He demanded Rm5 for each so call 'big camera' ~

*~Below was the partial conversation~*
cikopek: Eh, u punya camera kena bayar 5 ringgit lah~
we: kena bayar ke?
cikopek: ya, 1 camera besar 5 ringgit.
me: ya ke? dulu saya datang tak pernah bayar pun~
cikopek: kalau kami nampak memang kena bayar.
me: sejak bila ni?
cikopek: er..tahun ni la! camera hand-fon tak payah la~

Since we got 3 'kamera besar' with us, there's no point paying RM15 to take photo at such crowded and overrated place~
Rather than paying RM15, we gave him this instead~

**Tianchad's virgin-middle-finger sign**

Another personnel told us the camera collection fund started 1 year ago~ haha! very funny~lame! The previous photo was taken on 26 June 2009 and I don't even need to pay a single cent~ Today is only 7 months later... started a year ago??

Why do we need to pay RM5 for each DSLR or 'kamera besar' for photography which promote the place as well? This make no logic sense at all~
Can the JKKK - Jawatanjuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung answer the question??
Brainless rural area living creature who think nothing but MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! Another product of Buatan Malaysia~ Malaysia Boleh!!

signed off still f*cked up at 2:44 p.m.

i ma yet to go sg gabai.
thanks for ur info..
i shall hide my camera when going there..
it seems that many public palces namely jungle charged per entry for each visitor..
and when u ask them why last time no need pay, they will tell 'kalau kita nampak, kena bayar'..
i experienced that before..
what a lousy system..
i wonder where these money goes..

Tekkaus said...

Huh? Serious? They can charge you guys money for each huge camera? :p

Jan said...

LOL! That really sucks, I wonder how much they charge Ang Moh tourists who goes there?

Wo Shi Nicole aka MsXeRoZ said...

It's horrific! I do not oppose if there's charges for men-made attractions. Because the attractions itself costs money. This is nature, something which doesn't need any cost to build, but only maintenance! Y charge visitors RM5? It's too expensive!

XeRoZ aka Marshall said...

KwOng FeI@ keep ur camera hidden! LoL!
Tekkaus@ Yea, RM5 for each DSLR or known as 'kamera besar' by those ****~
Jan@ we'll never know~ Sux hard~
Msxeroz@ No one knows where the RM5 goes to~
