Law & Order @ The Garden Slug

A Telok Kurau resident named “Law” has written to us a couple dozen times throughout the past year, warning us and our dear customers to be mindful of traffic rules and fire safety.

“Law” tries to get their message across by posting comments on many of our blog posts. To a large number of bloggers and readers alike, this would be considered spamming.

We thought we’d let “Law” have their own blog post, once and for all, to get their message out to the “public”, as they have undoubtedly put in countless hours in front of the computer working on the behalf of all the other kind and wonderful residents of Telok Kurau.

We reproduce Law’s message here in full.

Should any of our dear readers and/or diners like to exchange helpful traffic tips with “Law”, they can be contacted at the following e-mail addresses:

Dear folks,

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

If you are driving to the Garden Slug at Telok Kurau for a meal, be mindful of parking along the roads in the residential area. Many cars have been found booked by the traffic police. The residents actively report all traffic situation to the relevant authority (i.e. traffic police and neigbourhood police). You may be lucky, once or twice, but don’t count on your luck too much.

The issue here is fire safety. Think of a building and why common corridors must be cleared for emergency. Indeed, long before this restaurant appeared, the fire authority have the foresight to install fire hydrants at the end of several lanes at Lorong L for fire engine services. Thus these lanes are fire engine access drive way; if a fire were to break out and the fire engine failed to arrive on time at the scene, because of vehicles blocking the road, innocent human lives would be lost.

On these roads where the fire-hydrants are located, there are single and double law enforcement (yellow) lines. Depending on the road situation (e.g. if too many cars lined the road), you may also be booked on single lines after 7 pm and on Sunday.

However, the (cash-card) car-park at Bright centre is really dirt cheap (honest), considering that you can drive all the way to have a meal at the restaurant which could easily cost you tens of dollars. Alternatively, if you feel that paying for parking is unjustified, you could ask the friendly proprietors (Joseph and his colleagues) of the restaurant for a parking refund as part of their Good Business Practice approach..

Have a good time but be mindful of the residents over there.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

  1. is the point of this to poke fun at LAW or are you supportive of the points in the email?
    ive left you my name and email.
    i live somewhere else and we(meaning the residents of my area) are also facing parking problems, so much so that we asked and got LTA to give us yellow lines.. so I can understand some what what this person is trying to say.
    and the tone of the email is neither malicious or sarcastic. so i don’t understand why this has come up?

  2. Hey wendy,
    Just to clarify… Mr/Miss Law has added the same comment to our blog 10 times in a row( and many times in the past too), so we thought that we’d give him/her some air time on our blog proper to publicize his feedback to a broader audience, once and for all.

    There are a lot of shops at Telok Kurau- pet shops, vets, salon, a massage place and loads of car show rooms… We can gently inform our own customers to park at appropriate zones ( which they have been doing ) but we can’t control what the other customers at the other shops do… Thank you for understanding 🙂 And thank you for clarifying 🙂

  3. Oh yes! I forgot to give a shout-out to Mr/Miss Law for helping us to remind our readers about road safety and parking rules etc. Mr/Miss Law: Do swing by The Garden Slug, and look for me ( ie, Sophia), i’d be my pleasure to kick back a latte and some cheesecake with you ( On the house of course 🙂 ) We’re all looking forward to meeting you. Do bring your family too, if they are in the mood for some desserts and coffee.. ** cheers**
