Ship collision, Lanang wharf

lanang jetty sc

I was asked to go to the Lanang wharf (not the public access one,
the one for trade) today to take some photos of a ship collision which
resulted in a cascading effect, damaging a berth of ships. I presume
these are meant for insurance and other purposes, so I will not be
talking about it. It was fun to walk along planks, climbing up and down
ships by holding onto a ledge and jumping (er…so that’s how they go
from ship to ship) and see what those oil refilling ships looks like.
Basically, these are the fleet of ships that goes out to sea to refill
the larger ones who can’t dock closer to shore.

It’s a good thing none of the boats involved in the collision are
the inflatable plastic ones like these rafts retailing at around RM
3,500 – RM 4,500 I saw at Wisma Sanyan earlier.

I don’t think it would have been pretty. πŸ˜‰

  1. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
