Jalan TAR yang sudah bertar

Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (TAR) is a traditional shopping district in Kuala Lumpur. It lies just north of the City Center and is named after its main artery, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, which is often abbreviated to Jalan TAR.

Besides Jalan TAR, the district also is home to the colorful shopping street of Jalan Masjid India, which is chock-a-block with shops specializing in saris and other Indian apparel. Indeed, the area is sometimes called Little India, although several other parts of KL (notably Brickfields) compete for that title and these days there are at least as many Indonesians around.

The northern part of the district is called Chow Kit, known among locals as KL’s low-end red light district, but it’s also famous for bargain shopping and food. The famous Chow Kit Wet Market has never stopped being the favorite wet market of all. You’ll also be able to see things which you’ll never be able to find elsewhere in KL, like the full array of Malay traditional medicine. The Jalan Haji Hussein street market at night is similar to Chinatown’s Petaling street offering fake goods & delicious local food which is located just off the Chow Kit Monorail stop.

The Tuanku Abdul Rahman end of Jalan Sultan Ismail has become KL’s new hot nightspot. Nicknamed Heritage Row, restaurants and clubs are now breathing new life into the old dilapidated terrace houses of Jalan Doraisamy and Jalan Yap Ah Shak, just off Jalan Sultan Ismail.

By train

LRT Masjid Jamek Station is at the southern end of Jalan Masjid India, right next to the start of the bazaar.

The Monorail services Chow Kit, linking it directly with Titiwangsa, Bukit Nanas, Hang Tuah and KL Sentral along with other smaller stations. The Chow Kit Station is located at the intersection of Jalan Pahang, Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

By Bus

Bus routes B101 and B103 run from Titiwangsa to Chow Kit.

Raja Nong Chik tak anggap ia matematik mudah

Kita boleh baca berpuluh-puluh entri mengenai anggaran Raja Nong Chik yang mencecah RM100-200juta, sama ada negatif ataupun positif. Saya baru sahaja buka laman-laman blog untuk membaca berita-berita terkini, apabila saya terjumpa satu entri di dalam DetikDaily boleh baca di sini: Matematik Mudah Untuk Raja Nong Chik

Sedih saya membacanya. Bukan saya nak kutuk jauh sekali menuduh yang bukan-bukan terhadap penulis. Mungkin sedikit mahu membela Raja Nong Chik. Apa kata kita buka kedua-dua mata kita. Penulis menyebut mengenai sekiranya setiap penunjuk perasaan membelanjakan RM50 ketika berarak. Adakah ia logik? Peserta tunjuk perasaan itu ke sana kerana ingin melakukan demonstrasi bukannya mahu berbelanja sesuka hati sehingga dianggarkan seorang peserta akan berbelanja RM50. Bagi sesiapa pun, Rm50 di Jalan TAR sudah dikira sakan membeli belah. hendak beli apakah? Baju kemeja? Sebelum keluarkan kenyataan atau matematik mudah katanya, fikirlah dari semua sudut.

Sekali lagi saya mahu memanggil penulis membaca betul-betul anggaran yang dibuat oleh Raja Nong Chik. Boleh dibaca di sini. http://prorajanongchik.blogspot.com/2009/08/raja-nong-chik-terangkan-anggaran.html

Bukan setakat kerugian para peniaga, malah secara keseluruhan. Jika berita mengenai perarakan demonstrasi itu tersebar luas, pasti sampai ke telinga para pelancong yang pada mulanya ingin berbelanja sakan, bukan setakat Rm50 seorang di Jalan TAR dan sekelilingnya, akan membatalkan niat mereka. Adakah ini sudah menjadi matematik mudah bagi kita? Kalau pandai membuat anggaran ini, subjek Statistik di peringkat universiti yang kerap menyebabkan pelajar universiti gagal, sudah menjadi perbualan harian bagi kita. Jadi, boleh kata anggaran Raja Nong Chik bukanlah matematik mudah seperti yang sewenang-wenangnya dilayang-layang oleh penulis di DetikDaily itu.

Bukan niat saya ingin membawa isu yang boleh memecahkan kita ini, tapi sebelum kita membuka ‘meja perbincangan’ (atau lebih kepada pertelingkahan) eloklah kita kaji apa yang sepatutnya kita tulis dan apa yang sepatutnya kita perlekehkan.

Penat Raja Nong Chik menongkat kepala yang berat untuk mengkaji anggaran ini tapi kita sewenang-wenangnya perlekehkan pula.  Semua orang boleh jadi Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan tapi susah hendak cari menteri yang fikir pasal rakyat dan negara seperti Raja Nong Chik.

Minister Senator Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said, however, his staff will go to the locations tomorrow to assess the losses and damage.

“We will try to get all estimates of losses and damages and it will be in the millions. At least, my estimate is between RM100-200 million,’’ he told reporters after officiating the 1Malaysia carnival themed ’Realising the Country’s Vision’ organised by the the Desa Tasik Residents Association here today.

He said the estimate would also take into consideration that yesterday was a weekend day and people were out shopping and it was close to Hari Raya which will be celebrated by Muslims next month. – Bernama
