After satay, Chimmy & TuxGuy went 4 2nd round while Y went home with her bf. The rest of us follow Dimple’s car.
As the highway was quite empty, Dimple drove quite fast. Not sure if she speed over the limit but v were stopped by the traffic block police.
The Malay policeman didn’t tell us his name! I know EVERY police is supposed to say their name b4 anything else (except when u r holding a weapon, then they can say STOP 1st).
He said, “Awak dah melepasi had laju. Pergi 130km/jam tadi.”
He asked for Dimple’s driving license/IC. I think the police asked for IC.
Dimple panicked & searched for her IC. As she did tat, the policeman asked, “Kena saman.”
I asked him, “Kalau saman berapa?”
He replied, “300.”
Really ar? RM300 for speeding?
He insisted v were speeding.
How does the police show the proof? Anything the police say, v assume it’s the truth?!
Then he asked repeatedly, “Jadi macam mana?”
Ahhh…. wanna ask us to bribe him? Tat v would say the 1st word?
Unfortunately, tat Dimple was so anxious, she fished out some $. STOP!!! I told her to stop wat she was doing but she didn’t listen.
I took out my hp & pushed the RECORD button – evidence. But the policeman stopped saying anything, he looked at other sui yu (more cars were being gestured to come to the sidelane). Damn!
The policeman said, “RM100.”
Dimple said, “Tak ada RM100 lah.”
She took out RM15. Damn. I really wanted to smack her! & the policeman too. RM1 also I didn’t want to give!
AREN’T MALAYSIAN POLICEMEN FAST, HELPFUL, FRIENDLY (it’s their motto) IN GETTING MORE $ INTO THEIR POCKETS BY INDIRECTLY FORCING US TO BRIBE THEM?
I stopped Dimple from fishing out RM50, who was still digging her wallet. Arghh!
In the end, she gave RM15. Asshole policeman. I wanted to report the incident to the Rasuah Dept. I’m going to find the contact # & save it into my hp. Next time I encounter such situation, I’m going to record it from the start & send it to the Rasuah Dept!
