I stand to be accused of being so petty. No matter.
Last Sunday, I wrote about how our community aerobics class at the Taman Lembah Kiara in Taman Tun Dr Ismail had been without the accompaniment of music for three consecutive Sundays.
To me, it was a failure on the part of the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) because the Sunday aerobics class is part of its activities and it had been made aware of the power supply problem at the park.
There was no excuse on the part of DBKL for this "hiccup".
Anyway, after my posting, I did get a response and was made to understand that by the next aerobics class -- which was today -- there would be power supply.
I was looking forward to having music to accompany our aerobics today.
At first, it looked promising. Our instructor and his two assistants were already at the court by 8am. Soon a truck drove into the park and two guys took out a metal box which I assumed to be the equipment to be connected to the power box by the court.
Fifteen minutes later, it was clear that there was nothing they could do.
Now here, we would like to thank Sandra, one of our regulars, who brought with here a mini comp so that our instructor could play his disc.
So, we did have music but no thanks to City Hall.
It seems, our instructor was told earlier in the week that the power points had been repaired. But when the two guys plugged in the wires and turned on the power, nothing happened.
The Tai Chee instructor who runs his class just before ours managed to use the power box because he had the key to it. But he could not lend our instructor the key because it was locked into the lock and he needed to bring it back with him. I believe, for it to be returned to City Hall.
The Tai Chee instructor must have obtained permission to have the key. And yes, we do understand why he could not leave the key with our instructor because he was responsible for it.
The power box was the only other option but our instructor was not given a key to it, nor was there anyone from DBKL to assist.
The point is, the power points were supposed to have been repaired. But, obviously, were not.
So, what happened?
Oh, well. There's so much we can bark about.
Until next Sunday then!
