Kelantan Fans Deserve New ‘Old Trafford’…

leave a comment »

I’ve been watching Malaysian Super League football match at Kota Bharu in every single game held at Sultan Muhammed IV Stadium that jammed-packed with people come from every nook and cranny in order not to miss their true red-color team. The capacity of this old stadium no longer be able to accommodate thousands of fans since it can fill up to 30,000 spectators including sitting and standing. Sultan Muhammed IV Stadium have been built in 1967 and officially open three years later by then king, HH. the late Sultan Yahya Petra.

It was announced as an official venue for Kelantan FA to contest in every competition held under sanctions of Football Association of Malaysia (FAM). The stadium was the home of Kelantan FA, a Malaysian Super League football team. Apart from that, the amenities the likes of scoreboard was an old-style and obsolete that need to function manually. The illumination system was also not works as needed since it can highlight the field without satisfactory brightness.

Last night, the awaiting-game between Kelantan against Kedah in Group E of Malaysian Cup attracts a lot of spectators and it seem the obvious redundant amount of spectators who by-ticket or not, be able to enter to stadium since the management of the stadium only produce 23 thousands of ticket including roofed and open ticket that saw the amount of spectators exceeded that of ticket produced. This will trigger unexpected happens since the stadium was old ones and no longer can be used and need to declared as ‘museum’. Thus, my courtesy either from state or federal government needs to give hefty allocation for the new construction as we didn’t want to see another ‘Sultan Mizan Stadium’ in Terengganu happens in Kota Bharu. Hopefully, Kelantan fans’ dreams of having new ‘Old Trafford’ will make into reality.

Gomo Kelate Gomo!

‘Lebuhraya Buatan’ di Bandaraya Kota Bharu!

leave a comment »

Perlaksanaan Sistem Jalan Sehala Empat Lorong di Pusat Bandar Kota Bharu bermula pada 11 Ogos 2009 ternyata telah berjaya mengurangkan kesesakan lalulintas di Bandar Kota Bharu berbanding dengan keadaan sebelumnya. Sebelum ini, kebanyakan jaringan jalanraya di pusat bandar Kota Bharu merupakan laluan dua hala iaitu laluan bertentangan telah ditukar menjadi sehala membolehkan sekurang-kurangnya 4 buah kenderaan dapat bergerak serentak ekoran keadaan jalannya yang lebar dan luas selepas pembahagi jalan dibuang.

Antara jalan-jalan yang terlibat menjadi laluan sehala iaitu Jalan Temenggong, Jalan Doktor, Jalan Hospital (bermula dari simpang empat Jalan Mahmood hingga ke Medan Tuan Padang), Jalan Gajah Mati, Jalan Tok Hakim, Jalan Pintu Pong menuju ke Pasar Siti Khadijah dan Jalan Parit Dalam. Laluan masuk ke Pusat Bandar dari 4 arah berasingan sebelun ini iaitu dari arah Pasir Puteh, Machang, Tumpat/Wakaf Bharu dan Pengkalan Chepa tidak berubah cuma berlaku satu penambahan pintu masuk di Jalan Sultan Ibrahim berhampiran stesen minyak Esso apabila pemandu yang datang dari arah Pasir Puteh, Tumpat dan Machang boleh terus ke Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II tanpa perlu melalui Bulatan Medan Tuan Padang (Menara Jam Besar).

Dengan pembukaan pintu masuk baru ini diyakini akan meminimumkan kesesakan lalulintas di Bulatan Medan Tuan Padang pada waktu puncak seperti menjelang musim perayaan ataupun selepas waktu bekerja (jam 5 petang). Apapun dengan pelaksanaan jalan sehala ini membantu mengurangkan kesesakan lalulintas terutamanya di sekitar Bulatan Medan Tuan Padang kerana sebelum ini bulatan tersebut menjadi tumpuan 4 arah laluan trafik telah dikurangkan kepada 3 laluan sahaja.

(Ambo seoloh-oloh baghu menetap di bandar koto bhagu, tukar-takir jale sehala. naek muto keno horn ko oghe sokmo. pening senggoti weih jale dio srupo masuq pitu blake tubik ikot tikak. jale koho lebar, koho ghama sep2 monggek nok nera muto diow. bagi ambo, bereh doh, pahni gak pro lar, amik maso ckit. Satu jah kelemahen: keno u’turn jauh la weih kalou saloh jale gak mugho xdop flyover. tapi bereh doh, rakyat kelate keno timo kaseh bany0k2 dengen kerajaen tok guru memimpin kelate membawo banyok perubahen. Molek doh 18 taun!)
