Crash at Genting 

It happened that the next few entries were from my trip to Genting last week. It had nothing to do with the catastrophic accident yesterday afternoon. We actually passed that stretch of the Genting road, and it was true that vehicles tended to ignore the speed warning around there. It was a one way stretch, three lanes wide, allowing the speed demons amongst us to open the throttle. Not exactly a good idea when you have a bus-load of people with you.

The irony was, the bus went off the cliff not far from a designated run-off area - a small mount with soft track and sand which allow vehicles with brake problems to veer off safely. We were talking about 20 meters away here. So, brake failure might not be the problem here, but I do not want to speculate.

I have therefore decided to delay those entries for a week or so until the the stories about the crash went below the radar a bit. Alfatihah and condolences to those who perish ......
