(Terjemahan ada berikut di bawah – 中文翻译,请看下面。)
Case of “lost credit card and MBF Cards (M’sia) Sdn Bhd”

Update, 29 April 2009: Bank Negara Credit Card Guidelines, available here.

During one of my service nights scheduled for my constituency on every Wednesday evening, a classic case of a “lost credit card” problem was brought to my attention. Continue reading


Yew Teong Look has no shame!

ytlthrowchairIt’s a case of Lembu Punya Susu and a Sapi trying to Dapat Nama!

Update, 29 April 2009:
This morning at about 10:30 a.m. officers from Jabatan Perancang Bandar came with tractor and lorries to demolish the telco tower. I am informed that the top part of the tower consisting of iron structures was dismantled last night by the company which constructed it. The dismantling job was carried out in the middle of the night until 5:30 am this morning. I am now informed that the company that built this illegal structure is STEALTH SOLUTIONS SDN BHD with its office in Damansara Heights. I have written to Jabatan Perancang to enquire about the cost of the demolition and who will be paying for it. I am also asking Jabatan Perancang to clarify: why its “Flying Squad” was not aware of such illegal construction on government land?

Note: In future, before approving the location and construction of such telco towers, it’s crucial that DBKL must ensure that the health of the public is safeguarded. It would also be interesting to know if there are any more telco towers that had been constructed illegally and are still in operation.

Update, 27 April 2009:
My letter to Jabatan Perancang Bandar, DBKL, asking when the telco tower will be demolished …


Update, 25 April 2009:
This is the picture of the telco tower that this dubious and unscrupulous character and
MCA chairman for Wangsa Maju, Yew Teong Look, was claiming credit for in the newspapers and TV for work that he didn’t even lift a finger to do.


Here is the Notice To Demolish …


In early April 2009 I received a public complaint from the residents in Wangsa Maju about a certain Telco Tower that was erected in Section 2 Wangsa Maju. I immediately did some investigation into the matter and on or about 10 April 2009 it was confirmed that the said Telco Tower was erected without any Planning Permission from Jabatan Perancang DBKL.

Press Statement, 21 April 2009, Kuala Lumpur

Re: DAP’s anger over the announcement of the resignation of Mohammad Fairus, the Penanti State Assemblyman

Press Release by Wee Choo Keong, MP for Wangsa Maju, a Member of PKR Supreme Council and Deputy Chairman for PKR Wilayah Persekutuan on 21 April 2009 in Kuala Lumpur


I can understand that Tony Pua, the DAP information chief, had to go all out to defend his political master, Lim Guan Eng. I also agree with Tony Pua that Lim Guan Eng had the right to express his disagreement over the failure by the national PKR leadership to inform him of the resignation of Mohammad Fairus as state representative for Penanti state seat on April 16.

Your MP's Question of the Week #52

Earlier today PM Najib Razak has sworn in his newly hand-picked cabinet that we expect will be one that is as committed as he is in serious nation-building urged on by the battle-cry crafted by none other than himself – “One Malaysia. People First. Performance Now.”

To be fair, anything less than 100 days is way too early for us to begin to judge this new cabinet on any kind of performance delivered on the promises of the Prime Minister. However, there’s nothing to stop Najib from immediately focus his attention on the performance of the GLCs which have been notorious for losing millions, if not billions, of the rakyat’s money on a protracted basis even in monopolistic businesses which include entities like TNB and Proton.
