They finally fixed CCTV in each of the two lifts at the condo. Spied the orb-like thingy, black and opaque, stuck to the lift ceiling a couple of days back. Frankly, I'm glad to see them there.
One would have thought people living in a reasonably upmarket highrise in a middle-class housing development like Taman Tun Dr Ismail would be civic-minded enough not to litter and smoke indiscriminately.
Sadly, they do. Despite a big "No Smoking" sign on the lift wall, one could still catch tje occasional whiff of cigarette smoke when one stepped into one of the two carriages. It was very annoying, to say the least.
Yet another sign cautioned residents not to throw their rubbish out of their unit windows. I couldn't believe some people actually did this sort of thing. How uncivilised!
Every floor has a dedicated trash room/dumpster with a humongous green bin big enough to chuck one's freezer in. Use it, for God's sake!
And the other day, the bibik (maid) who comes in twice weekly to clean up our place told us to keep our 'good' slippers and sandals in the covered shoe rack inside.
"Bisa kecurian di sini, Puan (there have been cases of theft here, ma'am)," said she. Apparently, the ones swiped thus far were leather footwear. So now only our nondescript flip-flops are left out there.
PS: No finger-pointing here. Suffice to say lots of people move about daily at this highrise; househelp (stay-ins or otherwise), janitors and cleaners, delivery people, labourers and construction workers (all those neverending renovation works), guests of residents ......
Guess the security folks just have to be extra-vigilant in discharging their duties...
