My entry to the Star's Citizen Blog - Disabled facilities are for the disabled

Here's my try at grabbing the RM50 carrot ;p... Don't think I will win cause I wrote a very weak entry. Real sleepy now.

=== Begin ===

Disabled facilities are for the disabled!

Caught in the act: a woman and a child alights from their new Mercedes Benz obviously not bothered that they are parked in a space meant for the disabled.

Really the title says it all. Malaysians can often be seen thumping their chests and proclaiming themselves to be the most caring people in the world. To this I say hogwash. Chest thumping will get us nowhere. Action speaks louder than words.

I can't really speak for the disabled but from what I have observed many shopping complexes have put in a concious effort to make their buildings disabled friendly. By providing exclusive facilities such as toilets and parking bays for the disabled they have succesfully made what most of us take for granted (i.e. shopping) accessible to disabled persons.

However it's really pointless if we choose to abuse the aforementioned facilities. Is it really that difficult to look for a parking bay? Sure we Malaysians take indiscriminate parking as a given but do we have to stoop so low as to take advantage of a disabled person's facility just so we can save ourselves from going around the car park another round.

I took the picture with the intention of getting it published in the newspapers but in hindsight I really should have told the lady to move her car as well.

=== End ===

Now for the fun part... with my immense photoshopping skills I shall now turn this picture into the most controversial picture that will grace the Malaysian blogosphere this year!

Ok... just kidding. I really have nothing against you know who (honest!). It's just that she opens herself up to attacks so easily.

Update: WO0t! Here be my post.
