Thanks for Contributing

I would like to register my thanks to everyone for their continued support of this blog. Including the detractors. I have read the often hilarious comments these guys make, including the threats and other rethoric about how bad this blog is, etc. Thanks, guys... really funny.. you make my day...

There's even been some suggestions for the authorities to check out illegal and idiotic parking. And seems that a major spot is the Old Airport Road Hawker Centre. This was sent to me by a reader called Amanda (thanks!). She claims that lunch and dinner periods are the best time to catch these idiots in action, along the narrow service road to the carpark, near blocks 47 and 49 and even at the disability parking spaces.

And here's a funny picture from another reader, Parkwell (thanks, dude!). Seems like an appropriate parking space for our usual bunch of idiots:

my pleasure, dude. Once i figured how to take pictures with my mobile phone and upload it into an email, will try to get "reality"" pics like the other guys.

Good to see you back! had a long period of cold turkey without the blogs.

with the COE so low, probably can expect more half past six drivers and parkers on the roads and car parks.

It's not just new drivers who stink at parking. There are drivers who have driven for decades and yet still park terribly. It's all a matter of habit, i suppose. Or simply because they can't be bothered to park properly at all.

the sad thing is that most of these drivers can park, perhaps not fantastically but at least considerately, and they are everything but. It only takes a while more, and slightly more common sense, and a lot more empathy.

to pi,

for the record, it is good to have you back!

regarding my suggestion previously:
1. to have a chart of make/model caught
2. to have a chart of locations (tougher to do)

just a thought, dun want to scare you away so soon ;p

Thanks for the welcome!

Ha! Ha! Not to worry - I hope to stick around this time, unless i get browned.

I am taking your suggestion very seriously. I have started cataloging the posts, and have managed to log down about 100+ posts so far. Once I complete the 300+ posts - I shall display the stats in some graphical format. It's a great suggestion.. just look out for it in the next week or so.

hello, this is a place for parking idiots not for drunk drivers ok? You drunk of just plain idiotic?

Ya, go to old airport road and be a parking idiot warden. Figure out how to make full use of your latest mobile phone camera.

And to make a chart? How lame is that? Why don't you guys produce a progress report too?

Oh oh! Shall we have a parking idiot warden's only meet-up, a place where we can share and discuss where is a good place to shoot? Maybe we can share tips on how to shoot accurately ensuring a clear shoot of the make and model. And of course it wouldn't be a hot pic if the no. plate couldn't be seen.

Just so immuture. Grow up. Give others some space.

You get BROWNED? come on, Not that I have anything against Mr Brown (he can be hilarious) but when people get cocky and think they can get away with this kind of thing, hmmm...

Couldn't help but chuckle when PM Lee blasted Mr Brown for making the Government look like idiots on his blog

Guess so long as you stay anonymous, even the law or the goverment can't BROWN you.
