Love boats, dingy

To sail the 7 seas. That would be my ultimate dream. But boats is not something that comes by in everyones mind in a lifetime. Somehow I figure when I have that little extra I would invest in a boat. Why do I say invest? Because having a bout is not life owning a car. No sir, expect some form of change in lifestyle when you do own one. First it s already the high cost of getting one. But let us not let that be a turn off.

My boat (when I do get to buy one) will be a large 15 footer. It need not be decked to be like a floating apartment. Having a simple one will do. I know surely there would be more fishing trips and a little bit of island touring. The rest of the time it will be at the Marina being taken care of.

But there is always a risk you see. With the ever worrying weather conditions especially the tsunami warnings. One can never be too careful. Any water craft for that matter should be protected. Even lets say you own a dinghy. You should get a dinghy insurance. Yes, in fact they can insure kayaks too these days. Why you ask? Simply because having a hobby is just not that simple anymore. So you would want to protect the right to have that pastime of yours. Surely my future 15 footer will have insurance and the same goes to the dinghy that it brings along.

SHAH ALAM 26 Sept. – Kerajaan akan meneruskan pembinaan Fakulti Perubatan dan Pergigian Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), di Sungai Buloh yang dihentikan sementara sejak awal bulan ini.

Naib Canselor UiTM, Datuk Seri Ibrahim Abu Shah berkata, keputusan untuk meneruskan pembinaan projek itu dibuat dalam mesyuarat Kabinet pada 12 September lalu.

Berikutan keputusan tersebut, katanya, projek yang menelan belanja RM218 juta itu akan diteruskan mengikut jadual asal.

‘‘Keputusan ini dicapai melalui tiga kementerian iaitu Kementerian Kesihatan, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi serta Kementerian Kebudayaan, Kesenian dan Warisan yang sepakat untuk bekerjasama termasuk menarik semula perintah penangguhan projek oleh Suruhanjaya Warisan Negara.
