Another “free ride” into the city

Filed in Fun Stuff

This one’s offered by Tropicana City Mall.

There’s also one offered by Ikano Power Centre. I was so excited to be able to go into the city without having to drive in and then pay for parking that I even wrote about it here.

Tropicana City Mall (TCM for short) is a new mall down the road from Ikano. For some reason, it doesn’t seem to be as popular as the other malls in the area; you can find parking here quite easily on weekends, which is how I gauge a mall’s popularity. Its free shuttle seems to be less popular, too. The last time I waited for the Ikano shuttle back from the LRT station, both buses arrived together and while a crowd gathered to get up the Ikano bus, the TCM bus had far less passengers. And the first time I used the TCM shuttle, a woman asked the bus driver at the LRT station, “Bas ini ada pergi The Curve? Does this bus go to The Curve?” (another mall across the road from Ikano). He kindly told her no and to wait for another bus.

While Ikano is nearer to where I live than TCM, the latter’s bus actually works better for me. It’s closer to the LRT station (just 10 minutes away) and parking at the mall is just RM1 all day after 11:00 a.m. I can stay in the city without worrying about the cost of parking; it is one reason I avoid driving into the city.

I was initially worried about taking the TCM bus; as it was a new service, I wasn’t sure if it’d be reliable. Altho I’ve taken it just once so far, it has kept to schedule. So yes, I’ll be using the TCM free shuttle whenever I go into the city from now on.

Bad day at work?

A friend tweeted this yesterday:

It reminded me of a video Big Chet sent me many years ago, that I managed to find online (google is your friend!):

And then I found an “updated” version featuring a more modern computing machine:

Hope these videos helped make your day at work a better one!

Probably the best comedy sketch ever

This Tim Conway “dentist” sketch from The Carol Burnett Show has to be the funniest comedy sketch ever.

Great story for this wonderful time of year

It’s Easter. Historically, today (sandwiched between His death and resurrection) was a dark time for His disciples. They’d just lost Him and apparently all hope, but did not know that the best is yet to come!

I found the following story on Guy Kawasaki’s “less than a blog but more than a tweet” site, and thought it very true. The more traditional Christians among us might find this “blasphemous”, but it’s true – Jesus is everything. Whoever we are, He identifies with us. He came down to earth, and for a little while, became one of us – human, suffering as we suffer, so He understands. He identifies with us, so we can identify with Him.

The original post is here, but I’m also posting it in full below.

Was Jesus Black, Jewish, Italian, Californian, American Indian, Irish, or a Woman?

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

  1. He called everyone brother
  2. He liked Gospel
  3. He didn’t get a fair trial

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

  1. He went into His Father’s business
  2. He lived at home until he was 33
  3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:

  1. He talked with His hands
  2. He had wine with His meals
  3. He used olive oil

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:

  1. He never cut His hair
  2. He walked around barefoot all the time
  3. He started a new religion

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian:

  1. He was at peace with nature
  2. He ate a lot of fish
  3. He talked about the Great Spirit

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:

  1. He never got married
  2. He was always telling stories
  3. He loved green pastures

But the most compelling evidence of all – 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:

  1. He fed a crowd at a moment’s notice when there was virtually no food
  2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn’t get it
  3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was still work to do

A classic, remixed

It brought a smile to my face, followed by tears (of joy).

Thanks to Ochiya who shared it on the Janis Ian Message Board.
