Salon owner fined for letting employee wear ‘inappropriate’ blouse
KOTA BARU: A hair salon owner is fuming after she was issued a summons for allowing an employee to wear a three-quarter-sleeved blouse while on duty at her salon on March 6.

The owner, who declined to be named, said she was upset because her employee was washing a client’s hair when the Kota Baru Municipal Council enforcement officer raided her salon.

“I would not mind paying the fine if my employee was not wearing a headscarf, which is a violation of the business permit conditions, but it is ridiculous to issue a summons for wearing a three-quarter-sleeved shirt.

“She was washing my client’s hair and it would be messy if she was wearing a long-sleeved shirt,” she said.

The salon owner was issued a summons under the municipal Trade and Industry 1989 By-law.

She also accused the council of double standards as other establishments had workers who did not wear headscarves.

“Why only target my salon when the others clearly flout the law and should be issued with summonses?” she asked.

MCA central committee member Datuk Ti Lian Ker said the council’s action was “unconventional” and “unbecoming”.

“This is sending the wrong signal to the world about Malaysia,” he said, blaming the PAS-led Kelantan government for the actions of the council.

“Most people prefer to take the ‘easy way out’ for fear of repercussions from local authorities.

“This is not the first time that such a summon had been issued,” he said, adding that many often paid up because they did not want trouble with the local authorities.

Ti said this could also give the wrong impression that people were condoning such laws.

The Kelantan Government had recently come under heavy criticism after banning the sale of lottery tickets.

If you were to ask me what’s the most embarrassing thing about the opposition party, I’d say having PAS in it. We often find these PAS nincompoops do stupid things in the name of their religion, and put our country in a bad light. I understand that this PAS party is very ardent about their beliefs and shit but, really, isn’t this ‘going around to fine people for trivial stuff’ a bit ridiculous? Like, haven’t they got anything more important to do?

If you were to look at it my way, you’d see that this PAS party is against everything that has a connection to either one of these – money, looks and modernization. So in a way, if they were to be given a chance to run the government, they’d do everything in their power to regress the society backward, to become rustic, parochial and irrationally anal retentive bunch of shitfucks. The people will all dress the same color, grow a stupid goatee and smell like a clogged drain (the women on the other hand, will be reduced to wearing ponchos and reproduce domestically).

Looks like we haven’t got much choice nowadays… either BN, or Pakatan Rakyat. If your district only fields reps from BN and PAS, then you’re in for a tough choice. It’s like selecting to swallow a roach or a stink beetle. Makahai. Tak boleh pakai.

    Which is why I will always vote for BN. They may be criminals/ crooks/ thieves/ etc etc etc, but at least there’s some “moving forward” for us. I really don’t fancy some towelheads telling me what I can and can’t do. My relationship with God is exactly that; MY.RELATIONSHIP… NO ONE has the right to judge me, just like I don’t have the right to judge someone else.

    Pakatan Rakyat is a joke…

    My grandfather taught me the best way to vote: Make sure you register, don’t bikin malu and remember, it is your responsibility to register to vote. Voting day, wake up early and go stand in line to vote. While in line resist the temptation to cave in and accept money for parties to buy your vote. Go into the booth. Go ape and take your pick:
    1. Mark X on each candidate
    2. Mark a tick instead on random candidates
    3. Use the paper to calculate your BMI

    That way, you do not vote for any idiot who will eventually fark up and you do your duty.

    There you go. Everyone with the surname Ooi is a genius I tell you.

    those of you ridiculing voting rigts, you are just ridiculing yourself. like it or not, this is a democratic country, even it may have it’s shortcomings.

    nothing is perfect, especially not democracy. but if you do not fight for your rights, shame on you!

    btw, I once heard an old man say: “if they offer you money while you q up to vote, take it… then vote whoever you deem fit, coz that money is your money afterall.”
