The Management Corporation (MC) of Anjung Hijau has recently sent out notices to all residents who applied for season parking informing them on their success or failure in the allotment of season car park for the next 6 months from 1 Nov 2010. Aiyah!! As expected, my application was rejected. Why? Because I have been challenging the MC on all sorts of rules and regulations that I was not happy about-lah like sending us fines for hanging of clothes, linens or mop at the balcony, having flower, planter pots and other items along the corridors removed etc! Also once, my daughter park car at wrong bay (her folly for not recognising the rented bay and parking at a bay next to it), her car was clamped and she have to pay RM50 to have the clamp removed even though she tried to explain and apologised for the genuine mistake made!
Are we no longer human and friendly towards each other as neighbours whom we see often and live within the Anjung Hijau community? Are we the ruling 'Government' that has become too arrogant to listen to the residents but has to clamp down on those who dissent? Is this arrogance the breed of power tasted and entrenched from being too long in office?
Is it too much for us to expect the MC to at least adopt a softer approach first like calling us up to warn us of any misdemeanor instead of straight away 'denda' or fined. After all, we are all supposed to be good neighbors mah? Is that too much to ask for? Apparently yes, says the Management Office. "We do not have the time to call everyone that flout the rules. As if Management has to call all 600+ apartments that are to be fined. Also, the usual crap of an answer is, "we are doing this voluntarily without pay, so don't expect us to be your servant!"
If that be the case, then employ someone to be paid to do a good job professionally rather then be scolded for doing a free but sloppy service, right?
Appreciate your thoughts!
