‘Water supply delay due to paperwork’

TRADERS operating at the new Lucky Garden Food Court in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, will soon be getting much-needed water supply as both Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and Air Selangor are working together to speed up the handover process.

In a statement to StarMetro, Air Selangor said the handover process was usually done in stages, according to work progress.

However, in the case of the food court, Air Selangor said the handover process had not been completed as it had not received DBKL’s documents on the internal water piping system, which should include certification by consultant engineers.

“The internal piping system falls under the responsibility of the consumer, which in this case is DBKL.

Gardening: Deep watering can help plants through the heat

The heat is hanging on a little longer than usual this summer and that has added stress to our garden plants.

Because of the cool wet spring, most plants put on extra growth and now they are struggling more than normal to maintain that growth. What can you do to help them?

First, even drought-tolerant shrubs and plants are showing signs of water stress. Leaves are drooping and curling, and some plants drop excessively during the heat of the day. All this means that water is not getting deep enough to supply the roots with what they need.

An easy test to do to confirm this is to dig a 6-inch deep hole in the plant’s root zone. If the soil at the bottom of the hole is dry, then you need to up your watering schedule and then do some selective deep soaking.

Joseph Pubillones Creators Syndicate Inc.

Louis XIV was sometimes referred as the “Sun King.” These mirrors, whose design revolves around a round central mirror with spokes all around the perimeter, are called sunbursts when finished in gold, reminiscent of the sun, and starburst when finished in silver, but the names can basically be used interchangeably. Many historians believe that these mirrors’
