In this photo, the buffalos were grazing the grass of the highland area in Bario, Sarawak. The features of the highland's buffalo is quite different than their cousins in the low land of the tropical area. Due to the mild temperature of the highland, the buffalo has a very visible hairy skin. Also, their size is quite smaller than those in the low land area.

However, there seemed to be some syndicates profiting from the installed guardrail. Immediately after the installation of the guard rail, the syndicate will dismantle the metal to earn quick buck at the expense of public safety.
I am sure the respective agencies responsible to maintain the road must has spent so much money to keep on replacing the missing metal of the guard rail. Immediately after they had replaced the missing metal, the syndicate will carry out their unholy duty to steal the metal. This vicious cycle will continue until something is being done to rectify the situation.
In the following picture, the metal connecting the guard rail beam and guard rail pole are missing. These are the favourite items among the thieves because it it so easy for them to dismantle the metal assembly. In case there are runaway vehicles hitting the guard rail, the occupant of the vehicle will be in serious condition.
Now, the thieves are becoming more daring by removing the steel guard rail beam. It seemed that somebody has put temporary tape to warn road users about the dire condition of the guard rail. However, the tape will not save any life when an accident happen.
Thus, in the area of road safety, the task to provide a safer road is getting tougher since there are irresponsible citizens taking advantage of the lack of enforcement to apprehend those who are involved in trading metal collected from illegal source.

The KLIA2 is getting to take its shape. Soon there will be a third runway completed to complement the existing two runways at the KLIA.
As compared with the existing Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), the KLIA2 will be better integrated with KLIA in term of passengers movement. Hopefully, passengers arriving at KLIA2 will easily transferred to the KLIA terminal.
I also wish that the low cost airline that will operate at the KLIA2 will allow the check-in baggage to be transferred to the KLIA terminal so that it will be easier for passengers to transfer to their respective airlines at the KLIA.
