Blatant display of power wastage on Kota Kinabalu streetlights

The following pictures were taken on 6th April 2008 (Sunday) about 10.50am. I was driving towards Lido from Inanam on the bypass. I had just passed by City Mall when I noticed that alternate streetlights still had their lights on. I waited until I reached the Bukit Padang-Luyang intersection before taking the following pictures.

In case you missed it, here’s a close-up, intended to show the contrast between a bright blue sky (associated with daylight) and a bright street light (associated with the night), which electricity bills are paid for by the people.

Having said that, of course us consumers must also do our part to minimise any wastage of resources, like ensuring our bathroom faucets are properly turned off after use.

  1. SNOW… THIS IS NOT EVEN WASTE OF TAX PAYER MONEY… BUT MISMANAGEMENT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL… WHICH IS EQUIVALENT TO “WHY ACA IS FORMED’………………… SURE ENOUGH,… THE MAYOR OF KOTA KINABALU UPON REALIZING THIS MUST TAKE STERN ACTION,… BUT THE FACT THAT THE LIGHTS WERE STILL ALGHT AT 10.50 AM MEANS WE MEANS BUSINESS…

    THEREFORE WE ALL THE TAXPAYERS, SABAHANS AND THE POOR WHO ARE ALSO ASKED TO PAY TAXES, CALL UPON EVERYBODY IN JKR OR DBKK TO MONITOR THEMSELVES IN THEIR RESPECTIVE TOILETS MIRRORS…. MEASURE WHAT IS WRONG WITH U ALL FELLASS… ARE YOU “M-G-B”…. M-G-B MEANS ‘MAKAN GAJI BUTA’ OR ARE YOU ‘H-C-P’ – HIGHLY CORRPUTED PERSON OR ARE YOU ALL HIGH ON L-S-D OR IF YOU CANNOT FATHOM – IT MEANS ARE YOU ALL HIGH ON DRUGS OR HALLUCINATING???

    HOW COME NONE OF YOU ‘M-G-B’ STAFF NOTICE THIS????

    NO WONDER BN LOST 5 STATES IN THE LAST ELECTION???????

    SCREW YOUU ALL RELEVANT PARTIES!!!!!!!!!! MEAT DOG!!!!!! SORRY BUT HOPE YOU ALL WILL BE MORE CONSCIOUS AND ALERT!!!!!

    DONT BE A SLEEPING DOG!!!!!!!

  4. Ayoyo these are old news!

    I have seen other lampposts in their full midday glory so many years now.

    I knew them authorities passed by those stretches seemed to be immune by what they saw.

    There goes my tax money…

    If I bring those photos when I go pay my tax, can get discount kah?
    Wishful thinking mah….

  5. Yupp, this has been going on for many years, but this is the first time I actually took the trouble to take pics.
