    Hmm? I thought its a norm? Been hearing it on and off for many years although the karang guni man dun make his rounds so often these days. I think he'd struck it rich, the last I'd seen, he owns like 3 cars - 2 vans and 1 Space Wagon.

    such incidents are occuring with greater frequency and the horn's noise has also increased in duration and volume. is it a matter of time before it becomes a noise nuisiance. maybe resulting in a ban on the use of horns in residential areas.

    i have no complaints bout the horn...nostalgic actually...

    i would worry when singapore bans about anything which irritates any person. That would be so sad. Tolerance is the key...ignore and it wont affect you.

    Just tell us where you live. We'll send all the karang guni men to your place.

    Try to get used to the sound, lah! Just like when you go to the toilet, after a while you won't smell the......... smell. :-)

    Actually I dun really mind for them to go round to collect stuff they need from householders. That is their form of living. But things seem to get a little out of control on this nowadays. Different individuals come at different timing on a same day with the same kind of horn and making the same kind of sound. Guess is time to do some fine-tuning on this. My kids are having exams now and those horn sounds are adding more stress onto them. I still prefer them to go round and do their normal call traditionally rather then using those horns.

    Should leave the stuff at some designated point and let the karang gunis collect them, instead of the very very very noisy and irritating horn and calls.

    Disturbing peace.

    Don't you use air refresher in the loo?

    You can only smell of lavender and nothing else.

    For peace and quietness in the loo, I think they make musical toilet seats in Japan too.

    You've scent of your choice and now music while you're releasing.

    They have to read the content of the newspaper before telling its price.
