TYT MOBILE RADIO TH-UVF8

Last Sunday 21/2/2016,I used my old Quansheng mobile radios to facilitate our group riding from KL City Hall to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.Sadly,these 3-year oldsets had gone kaput due to battery problems.So I informed this matter to our Putrajaya Cycling Club facebook group.I was planning to buy new sets  TYT TH-UVF8 when I saved enough money.




As they say,God works in mysterious way.On reading my predicament,Mr Desmond Goh,a fellow rider, offered to buy one set for us.Then,another set by Mr Loh and later a few other cycling group members offered some contributions. Within two days,I have collected RM910.I plan to buy 4 units and each one costs RM250.We need four sets and two of us keep two sets.Either one of us must be present at each ride so that at least two sets are available at any ride.If there is no more contributions,I will top up the balance.Thank you all my friends for your care and generousity.

To get and program these portable radios,I seeked the help of my good friend Kamarul Azhan.He is an electronic engineer and ex -Sapura General Manager.Last night,he delivered one unit and taught me how to use it.The other three sets we have to wait.The shop ran out of stock-very popular among amateur users.For my cycling,we are using Citizen Band 477.xxxx so that everyone can use.In my case,I can use other approved frequencies like 430.000 because I am licensed by MCMC.My callsign is 9W2PAD.

Almost every week I ride with my friends.And most of the time,I ended leading the tribe-not because I am a good rider at the age of 63 years old but more of my knowledge of the cycling lanes in Putrajaya.Way back in 2008,I started to cycle here.Then I joined a few cycling groups and ended being appointed as a committee member of PIPR-Putrajaya Inter Park Ride set up by Perbadanan Putrajaya.We started small with 20 riders and the climax was when we managed to attract more than 3000 riders to cycle in Putrajaya some three years later.I was glad to be working together with Tuan Mohd Niza to promote cycling as a healthy lifestyle.

Usually about two dozens of riders join me for our relax Sunday ride.They have diiferent levels of ability,capacity and experience to ride.Managing this group of diverse people need planning ,managing and control as we ride on the public roads and gardens.Communication while we are riding is critical in ensuring the group remain together and have a safe and fun  ride.We can plan the best route but anything can happen on the way and we need to communicate all the time.It is an event management training for me a few times a month.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002



The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..





"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?





'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

ON RAINS

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
