-An Entry on HighStage Marketing Perodua Service Centre In Teluk Intan- Unethical Behavior

On the 4th of July 2012, I drove back to Teluk Intan from my home in Kuala Lumpur, I felt something was not right with my brakes as it made some sounds (this was not the first time I have heard those sounds). The first time I heard them was basically right after Perodua Service Centre in Teluk Intan claimed to have changed my brake pads to new ones.  I did come back to the centre and there was no more noise at that point of time. But from time to time after that I kept hearing these noises, I even called the centre and mentioned this over the phone.  On the 5th of July 2012, I used the car around town and there was a loud screeching sound every time I used my brakes- I got very worried, the next day I went to the service centre.

I was informed that my brake pads was completely used and needed to be changed. I had already changed my brake pads when my car hit the mileage of 31,000km in September last year and found it very strange that my brake pads could wear out so fast. I told them it was impossible for such a thing to occur unless they had not changed my brake pads during that service.  My mileage is currently only 44,000km.

Upon checking, it was certain that the pads were definitely not one that had been changed-they had basically just cleaned it and ensured it did not make noise despite charging me for new brake pads. I was rather annoyed but was just glad that I had found out and something could be done.

I was advised to change it and agreed but I told them I would not pay for it again. They said they would change the brake pads for me nevertheless. The service advisor [Mr.  Liew Sei Lek   ] came by the service area, looked at the pads and disappeared-he did not say a word to me which I found was very rude. When I returned to the counter, the lady [Ms.  Vindra ] informed me that they would changed new brake pads for me. I was quite delighted about the news.

For some reason I felt uncomfortable and went back to the service area. I saw a used brake pad near my car and asked the mechanic if that was the brake pad to be fixed for my car, he nodded and said he was told to fix that. I commented that it was not new, he agreed.

I took the part and when to the spare part area/store and asked one of the ladies who was there concerning this, she said that was definitely not new- it was a display piece [I found it funny that a display piece was used- I wonder if their display cars are also second-hand?]

She said she would find out went back into the office and apparently was unhappy because I was causing trouble. At that point, I was pretty pissed that I was treated in such a manner- just because I was an Indian women on my own. I might not be a genius when it comes to cars but I’m nobody’s fool.

The service advisor re-appeared and told me it was courtesy for them to even consider changing my brake pads because it was not their fault and brake pads had no warranty. He also told me that brake pads only last about 30,000 km in terms of mileage, and mine had about 17,000 left. He also said that it must be the way I pressed on my brakes- that was the only reason it was worn out. I reverted by telling him this was not my first car and I knew better. He said what he could do instead is put back this old pads and ensure there was no noise.  I insisted he changed it and walked back to my car.

Moments later he came back to me after seeing me make a few phone calls with a different story altogether. There was also a Malay guy- named Yasir from Perodua HQ who was there, he insisted that the service advisor was doing me a big favour. It wasn’t his fault, he could not monitor everything- even if one of his staff did not actually change the brake pads he would not know. They had no service of who did what to whose car and since it was so long ago, it would be impossible to track [I do know for a fact that there is a customer history and I knew that a Chinese guy-the mechanic named Mr.Ho serviced my car during the break pad change- he has since resigned]. He was not always there to monitor, he could not be on top of everything- he insisted over and over again it was not his fault and that’s why customer feedback like mine was essential. He said out of courtesy he would change new pads for me [something he promised much earlier of course before I found him giving me old parts instead]

Through an inside source, I have reason to believe this is not an isolated incident. This is not the first time they have cheated people of parts or their service. It’s not just about buying something or replacing something, we are talking about lives. Faulty or non-functioning brake pads can cause lost lives, it is no joking matter. God knows how many accidents on the roads can be contributed to service centres like this.

I have been visiting this centre since I bought my car in 2009, I wonder what else I have missed or was not aware of- I’m deeply disappointed and worse still I feel very afraid for those people who have no voice-people who have no idea they are being cheated constantly. Being a small town like Teluk Intan, I never expected this would occur-small town people belief but it did and I will never return to this centre. I urged you to share this matter with everyone you know to push for an investigation to be made on this centre. If you have any information or share similar experiences with this centre please leave a comment here and contact me.

A copy of this will be sent to a couple of organization namely

for now…

Me.Me.Me

Well that’s what our society is all about these days. Isn’t it?

Should I go for that event? Why should I? Do I get something from it?

I want you to do this activity for class. Do I get marks for it? Or if I don’t will you deduct my marks?

A person is in need, she fell down. Why should I help I don’t know her?

Someone is struggling to cross the road. Why should I care she ain’t my mother…

The list goes on.. These days, society is about ME.ME.ME. What is IT in IT for ME? Am I getting anything out of it? Is there money? Is there rewards? How about doing it just because? Hell, no how is that possible? How about doing it because of humanity? What’s that you might ask…

This recent incident in China, just alerts us to the dangers of becoming nothing but a ME. A single entity living in the world for themselves and no one else. Who cares not for others but of their own welfare. Nothing wrong with caring about yourself, providing you do not lose your sense of morality.

How can a person see a child being run-over, over and over again and just pretend that they can’t see/can’t feel/can’t hurt? Just because they fear that they might have to pay a fine? So a child’s life is less important? A fine is something to be worried about more than someone’s life? Come on. Where is our sense of morality?

Where is our conscience? Where is our heart? How would you feel if someone treated your child in that way? How would you feel if it was your sister? Your mother? How can you not feel? Are you not human?

Regardless of how good deeds can be misintrepreted..does this mean an end to all good deeds? Because of one particular case? Because of one bad judgement by a judge in China? Because of some moronic idiot/liars who try to live off your good deed?

The question is where does it end? First we might start with not helping a child that is being run-over? Next- we might turn a blind eye to a woman being raped and god forbid someone being stabbed/burned and other unimaginable things. Just because we can.

There is a fine line between beisane and insane. Have we all lost our marbles? Is this how we want to be remembered? How we want to live our lives? What we want to teach our children?

I already see it in some of my kids. I do not blame them cause they do not know any better. Untill you reveal the consequences of each action they take or make, only then do they realize how big or how impactful each action really is….

But we as adults, do not instill proper values, basic humanity..what have we become or worse still what are we becoming?

How are we any different from animals? God gaves us something he gave no other species. The question is why do we continue to fail him and ourselves by living life like zombies.

Like I always tell my students, in life there needs to be purpose. Everything that you do has to have a purpose…even a single action. There must be meaning to everything that you touch, see, feel…experience. You must feel. You must hurt. You must view the world with open eyes, you must feel the world’s joy, hurt, pain. Everything.. only then can you be truly alive, truly human.

If we fail to do so and continue to indulge in ME.ME.ME then we have failed as a society ..as a human being ….we have indeed killed morality.

Next time death comes calling, pray very hard that your loved one does not intend to send you to Universiti Hospital because that would probably be the last time you see anyone or anything in your life.

This occurrences is not merely coincidental. Not one or two people have experience inefficiency at its worst here but many. I myself one two different instances, years apart have experienced crappy service.

Unlike any other industry, inefficiency of staff be it nurses or doctors can result not only in losses in monetary losses but death. So it is no laughing matter.

When my seeya(grandpa) was rushed to the hospital after he had a fall, he was left to bleed. No one attended to him at all and my auntie who is a doctor had to rush to the hospital and stitch him up. Only to be charged for it later, not only is that absurd but irresponsible. My late grandpa was in his 70s then.

Years later, my achie (grandma) was admitted to Universiti Hospital due to heart failure. She was admitted at approximately 11am and till 1.30 pm no one doctor attended to her as no doctors were on a duty apparently which I believe is BULLSHIT. Once he does decide to attend to her, the doctor ask all her family members to leave the room as he questions her. You have to understand my grandma is in her 80s and is having dementia, she does not remember things very clearly-fighting with her is to no avail. Smart thing to do would be to ask her family, but does he? No…the smart doctor fights with this 80 year old woman. I mean how stupid can you get? I think this doctor need to attend finishing school more like it!

How can a hospital run without doctors? So when its a holiday people can be left to die?That is ridiculous. To make matters worse, she is then prescribed a medication which sadly the pharmacy can’t provide because its half day-on a freaking Monday in a freaking hospital. It is closed! Can you believe that?

So my 56 year old father has to drive around KL looking for the medicine which happens to be a controlled medication. All this while my grandma remains in the hospital without the necessary medication for heart failure. Someone suggested that we send her to the private wing because they take care of you better. So what happens if you do not have money? You are left to die? So is that the state of our medicine today?

The best thing is after this huge charade they will charge you a hefty bill for basically doing nothing! What is the point of doctors and hospitals then?

I’m appalled by Universiti Hospital. I vow never to return.

CURRENT UPDATE: She has no bed yet and has been at UH since 11 this morning. Lack of beds.

Teluk Intan or known to the old timers as Teluk Mak Intan or Teluk Anson, is a small town located in the town of Perak.

This quaint town has grown from days of small roads and 1 fast food restaurant and a small mall to a 2-3 way roads (bigger than you can imagine) for a small town gal anyways! Now, the town even has a Mc Donalds drive-thru and our very own Giant. To the many who know me online, I’m an original Penangnite but truth be told I am a small town gal from Teluk Intan, Perak.

I’ve not ever mentioned this little town that I hail from but today, I find that it requires saving, it requires a spot on my blog, it requires highlighting matters that should not be overlooked ,just because it is a small town. Very aptly, the issue at hand leans very close to my passion, the field of education.

San Min Su Wa is a Chinese private school funded by the public through donations (they collect up to RM240k at one given time to fund the school). It is located at Jalan Sg Nibong, 36000 Teluk Intan. It is well equipped with computer and projectors. Hell, they even have a multimedia room. They are very big on extra-curriculum activities like singing, dancing and constantly entering competitions. Academically, the kids do not fair too well but often the majority of them pass (according to inside sources: they are “passed” if you get what I mean). I was told that the kids here are “skilled in English”. They can barely speak a sentence in English and we are talking about 16, 17 year old (but they can differentiate a verb, a clause and other parts of english! What’s the blady point if you can’t speak a word of English!). Guess what, these are the same students who come to me a couple of years later at college level and torture the living day light out of me. God, help me!

Most of the kids are fairly rich and have serious attitude problems. They are all mostly daughters and son’s of local businessman in town and most, show no regard to studies, as they feel they can always fall back on their parent’s businesses. Even their English teachers can barely carry the language well, to make matters worse they translate English words they teach to Mandarin (how does that help in any way? I have no idea). For those who might say, eh it’s hard to teach kids who can barely understand English, so translation is the way to go. I refuse to believe that as I encounter the same problem and my kids improve drastically after being exposed to methods of Ms.C and these are the same breed of UEC kids. If they show me attitude and if do not put effort, I fail them.

A local source tells me that educators are often made to pass students who do not deserve to pass (this also happens in local colleges that are not monitored well, I’ve seen it happen before, thank god my college has pre-boards for examination regulation).

his continues to occur in schools and colleges, when will it stop? To make matters worst, the management treats the educators in a very shameful manner, that “pisses the shit outta me”. An inside source tells me of the occurrences of the following incidence;

1.Teacher’s salary for the month of December has not been given to the teachers because of fear that they will resign at year end so the salary will only be given to teachers the
following year, towards the end of January. ( To my knowledge: People depend on their salaries on a monthly basis to pay bills at the right time and of course eat! It is their “rice bowl”
or periuk nasi”. I’m single and if I were to get my pay late I’d suffer, so I pity those teacher’s with families. It is year end furthermore,people have to pay for school uniforms,
stationery etc.
2. They have a steady input of part-timers that teach specific subjects. These teachers have been teaching for sometime at the school and have been paid on a monthly basis whether
there is classes or not. All of a sudden, there start cutting teacher’s salary into half as school holidays are approaching without giving further notice.
What do teachers who depend on the salary do when half their pay has been taken from them? Also they leave out teacher’s from the schedule and do not inform the part-timers that
they are no longer necessary. This is a plain injustice.Again, what do the teachers do? Have they, no courtesy? What about people who depend on it for a living!

It saddens me that this is the state of our education. This school is a perfect example of a mill that is churning out robots, who leave the school with minimal knowledge and impact. We are supposed to nurture the kids not numb their minds. Educators are treated like crap which is yet another sad revelation of what happens in this small quaint town.

Some might say this happens in all schools or colleges, so why this one. Firstly, I have an inside source to this particular one, to prove what occurs behind the doors! The rest (about other institutions) is based on speculation rather than evidence, so I can’t name specifics. Here, I can.

San Min Su Wa better buck up and hold up the integrity of its school as an education pillar of this town. I will not rest if nothing is done till words gets out about what happens in this schools especially if it does not improve in the near future. My question here is, what sort of governance is occurring if education becomes yet another shopping mall churning out certs/degrees and what nots to the non-deserving and treating their staff like pieces of crap. How are we to sustain the countries developments if this is the quality of graduates and teachers? How are we to turn a blind eye to the injustice occurring to this small town teachers! I can’t..can you?

Apparently, this seems to be the procedure when dealing with cases of which, the PDRM has doubts. Of late, there has been more than one case of which civilians have been shot (some accidentally apparently) for no valid reason.  One of the most recent cases which has annoyed quite a number of Malaysian, is the news of the “Noodle Seller Shot by Plain Cloth Police Officers”>that was recently reported, and <“Aminulrasyid Shot Dead”>

According to Malaysiakini, Ho Chei Hang was shot by plainclothes policeman while he was driving. There was no warning shots nor any identification that these were indeed police officers, doing their so call duty. Mr.Ho has since sent a memorandum to SUHAKAM, ,to demand that the trigger happy police are investigated and that the issue does not fall on deaf ears. A trial is on-going regarding the Aminulrasyid case while Mr.Ho case is being investigated by SUHAKAM on the grounds of human rights. The PDRM on the other hand is treating this case (Mr.Ho) as attempted murder and drug possession.

There seems to be a pattern in all these cases, firstly the police officers shot at the alleged cars after receiving tips of the said offense but neither officers on both cases had any prove that this men/child were armed to begin with… Isn’t it a rule that officers cannot fire at their own will without solid evidence ? Will have to check on that…

Yesterday it’s a high school kid, today it is a noodle seller, tomorrow will it be you or me?

Now if you riding or driving on the roads and probably have been identified to have the same color car or model as a suspected criminal, are you in danger of being killed?
Will you end up in the pool of your own blood?

If you do not stop, for fear of being mugged or killed, will you be shot down? If anyone would stop me at the wee hours of the morning, even the police, I would not stop (unless it is a block and you can see that it is official that is!)!

How am I to know that this plain-cloth police are truly police? Should I take the risk and get mugged, raped or others?

Anyway, with all this cases constantly occurring, my trust-0-meter for the police keeps decreasing. As it is I hardly ever go to the police station for anything!

Recently, I visited the Sunway police station to report an incidence whereby some men came to my house with parangs and harassed me, threatening to kill my dog and asking me to leave the vicinity within a month- I was scolded by the inspector there because he said that since the issue was already settled(the police came to the house the night before and both parties talked) he assumed that I should not waste his time).

If I were to be killed, what prove would  I have? So you tell me now, why would anyone trust in the PDRM?

Do not get me wrong, I’m not saying that there are no good cops but I’m saying that the image of the PDRM is being tarnished due to its reckless, non-caring, could not be bothered attitude in general that is showcased repeatedly through not one, but many cases that have been re-occurring.

The question here is what is being done about this trigger happy cops?
What is being done with the officers who scold you for reporting an incident?
What is being done with officers that plant evidence on unsuspecting civilians?
Where have all the good cops gone? Why are we advocating a shoot first prove later policy?


Why why why!

So many questions that remain unanswered.

Before I end, I’ll like to assert that I love this country but I’m not about to sit here and watch people dying due to the recklessness and tidak-peduli attitude of some of our coppers.

I just want to feel safe again. Don’t you ?

Yesterday, I spoke about clueless coppers. Today not to far away from their world, we have the great Judicial Commissioner, Datuk Ahmad Nasfy Yasin with his words of wisdom which I will definitely highlight below, he says;

“However, Ahmad Nasfy said he also took into consideration that the accused was not violent against the victim in deciding to reduce his sentence”.

What am I talking about? If you haven’t already heard, today a man who raped a minor just got his jail sentence of 18 years reduced to 8 years. The pretext of such an action.. well Justice commissioner says that he is after all a first time offender (kesian bah,cut him some slack-so he says) and after all he was not violent (coz in Justice commissioner’s thoughts/perception, god knows what else…rape is not violent enough, you see?). So you a man who raped a minor at some rubber tapper estate, who was initially given 18 years imprisonment and six strokes of the cane (by Kuala Pilah Sessions Court) for the offense of raping a minor (15-year-old kid) is now getting a discount. He will still receive the six strokes of the cane but get a discount of 10 years off the sentence.

What is the world coming to? At one hand we have reports of women getting canned for alcohol consumption and pre-marital sex and then we have the ridiculously stupid decision of decreasing a criminal’s sentence due to the accused being a first time offender and not being violent(do they even know what rape is?). Firstly how can you ever begin to say that rape is not violent? Stripping the dignity,soul, body of a kid not violent enough? Put yourself in the victim’s shoes, her family, just be human. How can you stomach that? How can you have the nerve to imply that it was far from violent?  I’m sick to my stomach thinking of the crap that is constantly circulating and corrupting our beloved country. The way the authorities have been running the country is sad. I dread thinking of bringing up my own kids here in the future. I love Malaysia but this sort of situation just makes me want to pack my bags and leave yet I stay. What can I do? I feel helpless so all I can do is to highlight this issue to you and hope that you highlight to others and someone big somewhere realizes that it just too wrong to stay true…8 from 18 😦

Pre-marital sex. In this day and age, such a notion is not excatly something very bizzare, or even something that would raise the eyebrow. You can count the amount of men and  women,who are still virgins, before they decide on marriage, muslim or non-muslim. The numbers doesn’t necessarily reflect the sort of Malaysian culture, that Malaysia often loves to portray. That aside, pre-marital sex is definitely something that is happening among muslims and non-muslims(no matter how much either of them would like to deny).

Personally, I could not be bothered, as to who decides to save their virginity or who doesn’t, men or women, muslim or non. Frankly speaking, it matters very little to me.  Like I often say, each to its own. But when pre-martial sex brings about the canning of women, Muslim women in particular, it definetely raises more than an eyebrow.

After a long hiatus away from reading newspapers or even blogs, UNSPUN’s post on his blog concerning Malaysian Women that were being canned due to their pre-martial affairs caught my eye. It really baffles me, that it is punishable by law, in fact it even makes it ridiculously silly (by no means am I making fun of syariah law). If you were to really punish by law, the crime of pre-marital affairs, I promise you there will not be enough jail cells for muslim or non-muslims alike! Why were this women in particular chosen to be put in the spotlight and canned? If it is truly punishable, I’m surprised it is the first we are hearing of. Most importantly, the fact that only the women are punished, makes it rather sexist don’t ya think? As far as I know, it takes two to tango ( in this sense, have sex). Unless the natural order of things has changed (if it has I sure did not get that email). Why only punish the women? Were the men unwilling participants? Were they victims? Are the men protected by law? Are they invincible to the hands of the laws or is it ok for them to do as they please? If anyone out there is an expert in Syariah law..please enlighten me… cause as far as I know, this is extremely ridiculous! As usual, our authorities have a lot of time to police this sort of affairs instead of actually bothering to solve real problems and issues like snatch thieves…sigh…

Malaysiakini reports that Syed Azidi aka Kickdefella was arrested in Kota Baru today.

According to Haris, the arrest had some relation to something seditious…In relation to bloggers being picked up, I heard that another blogger-PENARIK BECA has been arrested (can’t confirm the validity of this claim just yet)

There are picking up bloggers one by one..what are we going to do about it? Or are we going to wait for our turns in silence?

You decide…

Something is definitely up…scheming..some big time scheming is going on!

Cited as a landmark case in the Malaysian blogosphere as it has been the first case in the history of the sphere to be handed such a judgment, time will only tell how this case will prove crucial for future cases dealing with the blogosphere in the future. I shall not go into the details of the suit but just briefly explain what the judgment is about;

The High court of Kedah ruled in favor of Nordin Kardi, the VC of UUM amounting to a sum of RM2 million to be paid to him while another RM2 million to be paid to UUM. The decision could be considered as a default one as RPK lawyers were not present to defend the case of defamation whereby RPK was supposedly guilty of publishing a defamatory article that tarnished MR.Datuk’s reputation and UUM. RPK ignored it and despite the judgment call of the high court, RPK views remains the same, refusing to budge from his stand. He still defies to pay RM4 million and Nordin Kardi has threatened that he will follow suit although he knows RPK probably can’t afford to pay (no brainer?stupidity? You call it!

I wonder what this says about defamation cases and the blogosphere. Some might argue that defamation is defamation be it online or off line. Some might argue facts are facts and thus cannot be considered defamatory.  Whatever the case, this particular suit will definitely contextualize what bloggers can expect in the future especially with the refreshing new look of the Information Minister towards blogs. Will the promise to be more friendly phase out with the steam of the elections? Will it be grounds for more cases to come? Will it be a deterrent for bloggers to continue being as bold and outspoken about the government or its functionaries? Or will this issue just boil over as many other issues have. The only difference this time is in a way a case has been won over a blogger, the ramification of it is yet to be felt.

Only time will tell.

Penang UMNO has been urging and recommending the federal government to stop proposed mega projects in Penang such as the;

A. second bridge

b. light monorail system 

c. Penang Outer Ring Road

d. Penang Sentral

e. RapidPenang bus service.

State Umno secretary Datuk Azhar Ibrahim said the previous Gerakan-led state government had worked together with the federal government to bring all sorts of development to Penang and since people wanted a change and thought that DAP could do better than they did not need all this development since they voted BN out. As such, all development projects fueled previously would be urged by them to be cancelled.– looks as if they are more worried about their political positions then their own rakyat!!!

Since the people have clearly rejected development and made their choice for a change, we will recommend to the federal government to cancel all such projects. Don’t blame us for this,” he said after a state liaison committee meeting here today. (Umno only won two parliamentary seats and 12 state seats- whose fault is that now? the rakyat?)

When asked whether revenge was on their mind they retaliated and implied that since the rakyat wanted a new leadership his hands were tied. Case of sour grapes perhaps? So I guess this is what we have to look forward to…each time UMNO loses they will either resort to creating ill feelings among the rakyat(there was a demonstration at KOMTAR yesterday) when that doesn’t work they try to claim back “their so call development project which were supposedly their brain child”. Is this what we have to look forward to? Is this who you’d like to vote back in, 5 years from now? A party which blackmails you? Threatens you? Pulls the carpet from off your feet?

I see no point at all of the demonstrations. Why? I believe in freedom of assembly. There should assembly if there feel their rights are alienated or marginalized or even seek audience with the CM….perhaps the latter first. But why I said no point? UMNO Penang were the ones who were demonstrating yesterday for the rights of Malays at KOMTAR but they were the same people saying take all the major projects away- doesn’t that imply let our people suffer for making the choice that they deemed not right?

So what’s the point of demonstration when you yourself have indirectly asked for not only your right but others to be taken away in Penang? So each time things don’t go their way they are going to cut off the rakyat’s benefits? What next?Basic supplies? Water? Electricity? What a joke!

Which makes me think back. UMNO Penang says take the development project away. But whose money is being fueled to run this projects? Not UMNO definitely! Not BN! But every Malaysian….tax payers money. So how dare they use it against the rakyat?

You know when election was around the corner, I had a chat with my grandparents both avid supporters of Barisan. They have always been very secretive about voting but we all knew they voted BN. So we were talking about the elections and BN, Opposition. My grandpa said its BN who has been paying my pension all this years!I scoffed and told him that it was the government at that point entrusted to BN to run ,that was paying your pension. But most importantly it did not come out from the BN pocket but the taxpayers money! I guess previously most Malaysian feel indebted to BN when thats not the actual senario. They are meant to feel grateful for money they earned through hardwork, nothing to do with BN ultimately .The concept of people being upfront and brave towards the government and their policies was alien to them instead there said we should just be content with what we have or it could be taken away.

We should not be afraid of our government. But we always have been. Why? For the simple reason…we are afraid they will take away the little we have. Look at UMNO Penang-thats a great example of what people fear!

But people have to remember the money used for this project is the rakyats! Without the rakyat, there would be no money, no goverment let alone elections. So don’t allow this people to black mail us ever again! Tell them off! To have the audacity to say this…just horrible.

Whoever has the time should read what Zaid Ibrahim of UMNO said concerning all this issues after the elections, read here;

Former Umno leader Zaid Ibrahim has called on politicians – both government and opposition – to stop fueling racial sentiments in the wake of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition’s unprecedented election setback”- Malaysiakini

read here for more on what Zaid had to say

 http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/79831

-now that’s a smart UMNO Dude!

another humble and man that is using his brains!!- dude Mr.Koh Tsu Koon

“former chief minister Koh Tsu Koon, who is also the Gerakan’s acting president spoke some sense when he rejected the Umno’s call by saying that those infrastructure projects are crucial for the future economy and quality of life for Penang and its neighboring states.” –Sourced from SK

On an ending note I’m glad to say that the UMNO Penang do not represent the Malays in Penang.Malays here are much smarter than to fall for the political tacticts of UMNO Penang who like someone said cut their nose to spite their face. The Malays know that we are in for the long haul, to help each other regardless of our ethnic background! I’d like to call/ to invite all Malaysians from the Malay, Chinese and Indian, Kadazan etc ethnic group who are interested to join the cause of creating and retaining a Bangsa Malaysia- Penang. A true bangsa Malaysia….to work towards a better state government-first stop Penang…Any takers? Mail me at cherwith@gmail.com
