Lulu's Favourite Lighting Shop

is TopTen, which is located along LDP in Puchong at the row of shophouses just before Tesco.
There's a really wide range of lights at very reasonable prices and service is great.
In my visits there, I've met my friends and colleagues there. My wireman cumm handyman is a regular there too. It's like as if everyone and their colleague knows that place.
Why is Lulu blogging about TopTen?
37-year-old Wong Sing Ling whose body was found yesterday morning in the aftermath of the Tioman tragedy was the owner of TopTen.
He leaves a wife and two sons.

nst: "Wong was found in a vehicle tyre he had apparently used as a float and his hands were clasping another tyre. "

is a person lost consciousness and drowned have the energy clasping ?could he actually survive if the search and rescue conduct and thoroughly and professionally ? he could have been alive, and waiting for help in the open sea - for 4 days! so much of the marine professionalism that boasted in the mainstream....

as in johor flood 1 yr ago, i have lost faith for these rescues. the army asked for money, the ambulance got lost, the doctor injected the wrong serum, and now marine ...... so must start saving money and migrate to elsewhere, or buy a "datuk" title ....

Why weren't helicopters used in the search? They can cover a lot more area despite the heavy cost

If he was floating by clinging on to some floating objects, he should have been expectedly found within hours, not days in any well organised air-sea rescue effort. Afterall it doesn't involve many hundreds of square miles of water.

We have been lulled into complacency. We do not experience major disasters. The whole government machinery is not focused on rescue operations. For it to start and adun or MP must be present for foto-shoot before a rescue op starts....in the meantime Wong drifts until life ebbs. Or is it because the missing were small in number thus the full machinery was not mobilised. The families of victims must sue the ferry owners and also the Ministry of Transport for blatant disregard for urgency.They have to.

Was it true that the captain and his crew abandoned the burning boat ahead of the passengers? In certain countries they would be shot for doing so

Of course, in Bolehland, denial is always the natural response.

The fact that Wong's body was found just 2 miles away from the disaster spot suggests that whatever search was made by boat earlier was poorly done.

There may even be a possibility that the ferry service wasn't that sure how many passengers were even on board that fateful boat.

we have satellite technology that can zoom cars at parking lot, ppl carrying paper bag, and yet we need days to locate survivors. and they not proceed with helicopter and plane until thursday and friday. Conserving resources ? actually not survivior, but bodies.... the marines, ybs never thought rescuing surviviors at first place but searching for bodies, that's why they afford to delay days and days, and not continue night search. such attitude of our SAR. And together with YB they proud to pose and consoling the victims to the mainstreams...

disasters ? we just have tsunami, ferry collision, oid tank sunk, express bus 22 died, johor flood, and long ago highland tower.

It takes moral morons to play God and search for bodies instead of survivors in such a situation.
