So much hassle to bring helmet into Malaysia
According to these people...
Me: Encik, kenapa kena ada permit daripada MITI (Sir, why do I need a permit from MITI?)
Custom officer: "Mesti la kena ada permit sebab kita kena pastikan helmet yang dibawa masuk menepati standard SIRIM. Kalau accident mati pecah kepala.... kami jugak kena menjawab." (Must have permit to ensure the helmet meets SIRIM standard. We have to be responsible if there is a fatal accident involving the helmet)
Me: In my mind, I was thinking..."WTF?!! Arai doesn't meet SIRIM standard?? Actual Arai is using SNELL standard which is goes beyond any government standards around the world including SIRIM!"
Me: Cik, kenapa kena ada permit daripada MITI (Miss, why do I need a permit from MITI?)
Staff MITI: "Saya pun tak pasti, mungkin nak jaga industri helmet Malaysia??" (I also not sure, probably to protect helmet industry in Malaysia)
Me: In my head... What helmet industry??? Most of the chepo helmets are still substandard in my opinion.
