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. :eek:

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. :lovegrin:

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. :(

Don't you use air refresher in the loo?

You can only smell of lavender and nothing else. :bsmilie:
I don't like lavender, anyway, this way I can enjoy whatever I eat a second time! (at least the smell of it)..........

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. :bsmilie:

Don't you bring a dirty magazine to the loo? :bsmilie:
I can't pee in the bowl when reading those :)

I wonder how much these karang guni people would pay for those dirty magazines?
