Egg and I were a frequent visitor to our local temple which is roughly 28km from town. Local use to call it the "green mountain"
It is located on a hill surrounded by a small Malay fishing village. Just by looking at the scenery, I'm sure you can feel how peaceful and relaxing this place is.
A lot of Chinese believer visit this temple during the "1st and the 15th" of a Chinese calendar to burn their essence for sky a.k.a "tian gong (sky grand father)" and few other Buddha inside the temple.
Anyway, today I'm not going to write about how great the trip is and how nice the place is, but instead, I'm going to show you the true colours of the "sickening" village's parasite which I hate them down to earth. Let's call them "Arshaul"
When ever you visit this place, the arshauls (few of them) will come near your car and acting as if they are the parking attendants and instruct you on where to park the car.
Once you parked, those arshauls will come to you asking for parking fees. Guess how much is that? It's a g*d da*n RM4.00!
Even the Spring shopping mall with proper/professional security personnel only charge RM2.00 per car through out the day!
If you insist not to pay, they will start cursing you and force you to pay. Well, for a typical Sarawakian Chinese, they'll just pay them instead of risking their car being sabotaged.
Now, do you think I paid? The answer will be NO! and NEVER WILL! Luckily there's a Chinese Seafood Restaurant nearby which provide parking for their customers and they were protected by the government (JKK/DBKU). We were lucky enough to find a parking there.
When we went up the hill, there was another car came and park near the temple, so I decide to take pictures of the whole process of the arshauls begging for money.
*Please recognize their faces
I wonder how rotten they can get! Having both hands and legs working fine and yet they can't find a real job to earn, instead they prefer to sit there leeching for money from visitors.
My questions are,
Are they allowed to collect fees from visitors legally?
Are those parking spaces built by them?
Does our government approve them as a parking fees collector?
I'm not sure where I can get the exact answer for the questions posted above but I can definitely tell you that they are worse than OKU (Orang Kurang Upaya) or I should call them OTU (Orang Tiada Upaya)
