As some of you guys might know I have a room to let in CyberJaya. So last night I rushed back to CyberJaya because there were potential housemates interested to take a look at the place. (Thank God!)

I and my housemates are actually kind of desperate as 6 months ago we inked a 1 year contract for the house knowing that one of us would only stay for 6 months. So now it’s already month 7 and we owe the landlord the full rent even though there are only 5 instead of the initial 6 of us. But in all fairness, the land lord was kind enough to give us a time extension on paying the last portion of the rent.

Anyway, it was an interesting night. I showed the room to a group of deaf-mute students. It was the quietest introduction I ever made with no words being said. They were signing to each other furiously, but not much was directed at me. I hope we get them. That way I’ll have motivation to learn sign language.

Also this morning I had an Indian fellow who just got in the country 15 days ago. He’s a data specialist working for DHL, whose worldwide data processing centre is right down the road from here, kind of interesting fellow also. He spoke English, but with a thick accent.

Right after he left, a guard came along and told me that the management of the development I’m staying at says the 'Room to Let' sign we had put up had to be taken down. I’m like WTF? I told the guard that the door to the room which window the sign was hanging from was locked and I had no key (which is true) so I can’t take it down. Besides, it’s the dumbest thing I ever heard. I’m sure if one has a room to let; one is well within ones right to advertise as such, especially when we are paying rent on the place already.

It also seems the management is only good at complaining, but when I complain to them they don’t seem to respond. The piped gas supply to my place has been cut for more about 2 months now, due to a pipe leakage somewhere in the main supply line within management’s property. Every time I go to the office to find out what happened to the gas supply and when I can get it back, I get passed around and I haven’t gotten an answer from anybody. This is despite repeatedly personally visiting the office and leaving my number with the lady in charge, who promised to get back to me but didn’t.

I think I’ll give them the same treatment with the sign, make empty promises and not do anything.

Hey, maybe you should post the name of the company. Who knows, you might suddenly get a call from the CEO or something.
