Minister of Tourism says Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd has no political link!

Update, 22 July 2009: World Shanghai Expo 2010 website here also publishes most of what I have written about on this subject!

Menteri Pelancongan kata Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd tidak mempunyai hubungan politik! (Versi BM ada dibawah)

The Minister of Tourism Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen, had denied in The Sun today (20 July 2009) that there was no “political link” when it awarded the RM19 million contract to Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd (Venturepharm) to build the Malaysia Pavilion for the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai and that it was done via an open tender and the process was carried out in a clear and transparent manner. The Minister had also denied that the ministry had helped Venturepharm to win the contract.

Background:

On 22 June 2009, the Minister of Science and Technology in response to my question has stated in Parliament as follows:

–   In 2008, Venturepharm was granted “Dana TechnoFund” amounting to RM5.36 million from the Ministry for research into “Localisation of mucosal bio-additive” for feed in Malaysia.

–   It was found out by the Ministry that Venturepharm only had the ability to do the said research via transfer of technology and collaborations from one Dr Mingwei Chen from XLW Inc USA.

–   As at 10 March 2009, the Ministry had already paid out RM2,264,800-00.

–   The remaining sum of RM3,095,200-00 has yet to be paid.

According to the corporate information of Venturepharm, which was obtained from the Companies Commission of Malaysia, the company is “engaged in research and development, and marketing of pharmaceutical products.”

Venturepharm was incorporated in 19 August 2005 and it had no previous experience in pharmaceutical products or any form of research and development. Venturepharm share the same registered office as Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd, which was awarded the contract by the Malaysia Tourism Board to operate the Tourism Call Centre. The monthly payment for the Tourism Call Centre is RM47,500-00.

Datuk Mustapa bin Juman, the former chief executive officer of FELCRA who was charged for 3 counts of CBT involving RM40 millions and who was subsequently acquitted, is the common director and shareholder in Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd and Venturepharm. Madam Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai  is the director and shareholder of Venturepharm and her son, Chin Fook Kwon, is the director shareholder of Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd.

I have reason to believe that XLW Inc is not an expert in bio-feed or has the capability to transfer technology to Venturepharm. On 03 May 2008, Venturepharm signed the transfer of technology agreement with XLW Inc USA. The said agreement was signed by Mr Yang Keng Chiang on behalf of XLW Inc USA. I have been informed that recently the Ministry of Science, Technologies and Innovation had commenced investigation into this matter and in the interim the Ministry had frozen further payment of the TechnoFund amounting to RM3,095,200-00 to Venturepharm.

In early July 2009, I had provided the MACC with all the relevant documents pertaining to the Venturepharm joint co-operations with XLW Inc. I had been informed that MACC had commenced investigation into this matter.

Daley PR & Communication CoLtd

Mr Yang Keng Chiang a.k.a. Ken Chiang, who is also the managing director of Daley PR & Communication Co Ltd (Daley PR) is based in Guangzhou, China. Mr Ken Yang Keng Chiang is also the manager of XLW Inc USA. Ms Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai, who originated from Taiwan, is the chairperson of Daley PR. For further information, please visit the website of Daley PR:  www.daleypr.com. You’ll notice that Madam Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai  is also the shareholder and director of Venturepharm.

Daley PR had also been awarded with exclusive contracts by the Malaysian Tourism Board under the Ministry of Tourism to promote Malaysia in China. Among other things, Daley PR is to place advertisement on billboards, commercials on tv and radio and carry out other advertising activities.

I have spoken about most of the above matters in June Session of Parliament.

Developtrends Sdn Bhd

The nature of business of this company is “providing advertisement services for Malaysia Tourism in foreign countries.” It also shares the same registered office address as Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd and Daro Wordwide Sdn Bhd at Wisma Daro, 96 B, Jalan Cerdas, Taman Connaught, Cheras, KL.

Developtrends Sdn Bhd is a shareholder in Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd (KPNB), which was incorporated on 20 March 2006.

The establishment of KPNB is an initiative of the Malaysian Government, carried out via the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry. It is a National Project which is spearheaded by the private sector, and is tasked to play a key role in the development of the fisheries industry in the country in the new millennium, and thus be a partner with the government to facilitate the achievement of the NAP3 (1998 – 2010). Please go to http://www.kpnb.com.my/index.htm.

Y.B. Tan Sri Dato’ Hj Muhyiddin Bin Hj Mohd Yassin, is the advisor of KPNB.  Ms Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai is a director of KPNB.  But Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai is not a director or shareholder of Developtrends Sdn bhd.  Please go to http://www.kpnb.com.my/_html/boardofdirector.htm for information.

Profile of YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen

It must be noted that YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen was the Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism from 1999 – 2003.  From 2003 she was appointed Minister of Finance. On 10 April 2009, she was appointed the Minister of Tourism.

At one time Ms Ivy See was her personal assistant when she was the Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism. After she was appointed as Deputy Minister of Finance, Ms Ivy See left the ministry and joined Daley PR as its executive director. At the material time, Ms Ivy See and Mr Ken Yang Cheng Kiang, who is also the manager of XLW Inc USA the business partner of Venturepharm, were running Daley PR in Guangzhou.

The Contact to Build Malaysia Pavilion At The 2010 Expo In Shanghai

The first tender was opened on 13 March 2009 and it was closed on 03 April 2009 when YB Datuk Azalina Othman was the then Minister of Tourism.

Not long after YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen was appointed the new Minister of Tourism, the first tender was canceled. Thereafter, Malaysian Tourism Board reopened a new tender on 13 May 2009 and it was closed on 04 June 2009.

The names of the company bidding for the First Tender are as follows:

AMD Network Sdn Bhd RM 29,130,050.00 RM 29, 948,650.00
Ad Suria Sdn Bhd RM 27, 200,200.00

Kumpulan Jetson Bhd                                            RM38,833,000.0
Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd                                 RM19,999,000.00

Malaysia Tourism Board has now awarded the project to Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd, which is directly connected to Ms Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai, to build the Malaysia’s Pavilion for the 2010 Expo in Shanghai.

The Minister of Tourism must explain the followings:

  1. Whether she was aware that Daley PR was the appointed PR company to promote Malaysia in China by Malaysia Tourism Board?
  2. At the material time, whether she was aware that her former personal assistant, Ms Ivy See, Mr Ken Yang Cheng Kiang and Ms Grace Chen Oyan Yun Sai were directors of and/or closely connected with Daley PR?
  3. Ever since Daley PR was appointed, up to this date what has been the total sum that was paid by the Malaysian Tourism Board to the company?
  4. Whether she was aware of the fact that Developtrends Sdn Bhd, which shares the same registered office address as Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd and Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd, is a shareholder of Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd?
  5. Whether she was aware that Ms Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai is a director of Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd?
  6. Why was there a necessity for the Malaysian Tourism Board to cancel the First Tender when the particulars of the said Tender had been properly advertised in the newspapers and closed?
  7. Whether it is true that there will be a variation order of RM10 million for this project to build Malaysia’s Pavilion for 2010 Expo in Shanghai?
  8. What was the basis for Malaysia Tourism Board to award the contract for the building of Malaysia’s Pavilion to Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd, when it has no previous experience in the constructions business, against other bidders, who have good track records/experiences to engage in such a project?
  9. Why the Malaysia Tourism Board or Ministry of Tourism has yet to announce the fact that Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd has been awarded the contract to build Malaysia’s Pavilion in the 2010 Expo in Shanghai?

Terjemahan oleh Cik Zalarina Bte Hj Zainal Abidin – Ucapan ribuan terima kasih dari Wee Choo Keong –

Menteri Pelancongan kata Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd tidak mempunyai hubungan politik!

Menteri Pelancongan Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen, telah menafikan dalam The Sun hari ini (20 Julai 2009) bahawa tidak ada “hubungan politik” apabila ia menganugerahkan RM19 juta kontrak kepada Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd (Venturepharm) untuk membina Pavilion di Ekspo Shanghai Se Dunia 2010 yang dibuat melalui satu tender terbuka dan telah dijalankan secara jelas dan telus. Menteri Pelancongan juga telah menafikan yang kementerian itu telah membantu Venturepharm untuk mendapat kontrak itu.

Latarbelakang:

Pada 22 Jun 2009, Menteri Sains dan Teknologi sebagai menjawab kepada soalan saya telah menyatakan di Parlimen ungkapan berikut:

– Pada tahun 2008, Venturepharm telah dianugerahkan “Dana TechnoFund” berjumlah RM5.36 juta daripada Kementerian berkenaan bagi penyelidikan kepada “Localisation of mucosal bio-additive” untuk kegunaan di Malaysia.

– Kementerian dimaklumkan bahawaVenturepharm hanya mempunyai keupayaan melakukan penyelidikan berikut melalui pemindahan teknologi dan kerjasama dari Dr Mingwei Chen daripada syarikat XLW Inc USA.

– Pada 10 Mac 2009, Kementerian telah pun membayar sebanyak RM2,264,800-00.

– Baki jumlah RM3,095,200-00 masih belum dibayar.

Menurut maklumat korporat Venturepharm, yang diperolehi dari Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia, bidang syarikat berkenaan adalah “penyelidikan dan pembangunan dan pemasaran produk farmaseutikal.”

Venturepharm ditubuhkan pada 19 Ogos 2005 dan sebelum ini tidak mempunyai pengalaman dalam produk farmaseutikal atau sebarang bentuk penyelidikan dan pembangunan. Venturepharm berkongsi pejabat pendaftaran dengan Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd, yang telah dianugerahkan kontrak oleh Badan Pelancongan Malaysia untuk mengendalikan pusat panggilan pelancongan. Pembayaran bulanan untuk pusat panggilan pelancongan adalah RM47,500-00.

Datuk Mustapa Juman, bekas ketua pegawai eksekutif FELCRA yang telah dituduh untuk 3 kiraan pecah amanah melibatkan RM40 juta dan kemudiannya dibebaskan dari tuduhan, adalah seorang pengarah dan pemegang saham dalam Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd dan Venturepharm. Madam Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai adalah pengarah dan pemegang saham Venturepharm dan anak lelaki beliau, Chin Fook Kwon, adalah pengarah pemegang saham Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd.

Saya mempunyai sebab untuk mempercayai bahawa syarikat XLW Inc bukan merupakan pakar dalam “bio-feed” atau mempunyai keupayaan untuk pemindahan teknologi kepada Venturepharm. Pada 03 Mei 2008, Venturepharm menandatangani perjanjian pemindahan teknologi dengan syarikat XLW Inc USA. Persetujuan bertulis telah ditandatangani oleh Mr Yang Keng Chiang bagi pihak XLW Inc USA. Saya telah dimaklumkan baru-baru ini bahawa pihak Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Innovasi telah memulakan siasatan mengenai perkara ini dan buat sementara waktu pihak Kementerian telah membekukan pembayaran lanjut TechnoFund berjumlah RM3,095,200-00 kepada Venturepharm.

Pada awal Julai 2009, saya telah menyerahkan kepada SPRM semua dokumen-dokumen berkaitan kerjasama Venturepharm dengan syarikat XLW Inc. Saya telah dimaklumkan bahawa SPRM telah mula membuat siasatan dalam perkara ini.

Daley PR & Communication CoLtd

Mr Yang Keng Chiang a.k.a. Ken Yang, merupakan pengarah urusan Daley PR & Communication Co Ltd (Daley PR) yang beroperasi di Guangzhou, China. Mr Ken Yang Keng Chiang juga merupakan pengurus bagi syarikat XLW Inc USA. Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai, yang berasal Taiwan, adalah pengerusi Daley PR. Untuk keterangan lanjut, sila layari laman web Daley PR: www.daleypr.com. Dapat diperhatikan bahawa Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai juga adalah pemegang saham dan pengarah Venturepharm.

Daley PR telah dianugerahkan kontrak-kontrak eksklusif oleh Badan Pelancongan Malaysia di bawah Kementerian Pelancongan bagi mempromosikan Malaysia di Negara China. Antara lain, Daley PR menjalankan aktiviti pengiklanan di papantanda-papantanda, tv, radio dan lain-lain.

Perkara-perkara tersebut telah saya bentangkan di sesi Parlimen pada bulan Jun yang lepas.

Developtrends Sdn Bhd

Bidang perniagaan syarikat ini adalah “menyediakan perkhidmatan pengiklanan untuk pelancongan Malaysia di negara asing.” Ia juga berkongsi pejabat pendaftaran yang sama dengan Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd dan Daro Wordwide Sdn Bhd di Wisma Daro, 96 B, Jalan Cerdas, Taman Connaught, Cheras, KL.

Developtrends Sdn Bhd adalah salah satu pemegang syer dalam Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd (KPNB), yang telah ditubuhkan pada 20 Mac 2006.

Penubuhan KPNB adalah satu inisiatif Kerajaan Malaysia, dijalankan melalui Kementerian Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani. Ia adalah satu Projek Nasional yang dipelopori oleh sektor swasta, dan ditugaskan untuk memainkan peranan utama dalam pembangunan industri perikanan negara di alaf baru ini, dan dijadikan rakan kongsi dengan kerajaan bagi mejayakan NAP3 (1998 – 2010). Sila layari http://www.kpnb.com.my/index.htm.

YB Tan Sri Dato’ Hj Muhyiddin Bin Hj Mohd Yassin, adalah penasihat bagi KPNB. Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai merupakan salah seorang pengarah KPNB. Tetapi Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai bukan pengarah atau pemegang saham Developtrends Sdn Bhd. Sila layari http://www.kpnb.com.my/_html/boardofdirector.htm untuk maklumat lanjut.

Profil YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen

Perlu dimaklumkan bahawa YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen merupakan bekas Timbalan Menteri Kementerian Kebudayaan dan Pelancongan daripada tahun 1999 – 2003. Bermula dari tahun 2003 beliau pernah dilantik sebagai Menteri Kewangan dan pada 10 April 2009, telah dilantik sebagai Menteri Pelancongan.

Ivy See merupakan pembantu peribadi beliau ketika memegang jawatan Timbalan Menteri di Kementerian Kebudayaan dan Pelancongan. Selepas beliau dilantik sebagai Timbalan Menteri Kewangan, Ivy See meninggalkan kementerian dan bekerja dengan Daley PR sebagai pengarah eksekutifnya. Pada waktu tersebut, Ivy See dan Mr Ken Yang Cheng Kiang, yang juga merupakan pengurus bagi syarikat XLW Inc USA, iaitu rakan niaga Venturepharm, bersama-sama menjalankan operasi Daley PR di Guangzhou.

Kontrak untuk Membina Pavilion Malaysia di Ekspo Shanghai Se Dunia 2010

Tender pertama telah dibuka pada 13 Mac 2009 dan ditutup pada 03 April 2009 apabila YB Datuk Azalina Othman ketika itu masih Menteri Pelancongan.

Selepas YB Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen dilantik sebagai Menteri Pelancongan yang baru, tender pertama tersebut telah dibatalkan. Kemudian, Badan Pelancongan Malaysia telah membuka semula satu tender baru pada 13 Mei 2009 dan ianya pula ditutup pada 04 Jun 2009.

Nama-nama syarikat yang membuat tawaran pada tender yang pertama adalah seperti berikut:

AMD Network Sdn Bhd RM 29,130,050.00 RM 29, 948,650.00
Ad Suria Sdn Bhd RM 27, 200,200.00
Media Signs Sdn Bhd RM 29,460,000.00 RM 29,500,000.00
Expo Jaya Sdn Bhd RM 19,800,000.00
Pico Integrated Exhibits Sdn Bhd – Option A RM 15,933,000.00
Pico Integrated Exhibits Sdn Bhd – Option B RM 13,890,000.00
Qube Integrated Sdn Bhd RM 23, 682,750.00
Wingspan Integrated (M) Sdn Bhd RM 19,988,000.00
AR Factor Resources Sdn Bhd RM 23,091,860.00
WellAd Communications Sdn Bhd RM, 89,872,319.70

Dalam Tender Kedua, dua buah syarikat tambahan telah mengambil bahagian dan mereka adalah:

Kumpulan Jetson Bhd RM38,833,000.0

Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd RM19,999,000.00

Badan Pelancongan Malaysia kini telah menganugerahkan projek tersebut ke Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd, yang secara langsung berkaitan dengan Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai, untuk membina Pavilion Malaysia untuk Ekspo Shanghai Se Dunia 2010.

Menteri Pelancongan harus menjelaskan perkara-perkara berikut:

1.         Sama ada beliau sedar Daley PR merupakan syarikat Perhubungan Awam lantikan bagi mempromosikan Malaysia di Negara China oleh Badan Pelancongan Malaysia?

2.         Yang pada ketika itu, sama ada beliau sedar yang bekas pembantu peribadi beliau, Ivy See, Ken Yang Cheng Kiang dan Grace Chen Oyan Yun Sai adalah pengarah-pengarah dan /atau dikait rapat dengan Daley PR?

3.         Semenjak lantikan Daley PR, sehingga kini berapakah jumlah keseluruhan yang telah dibayar oleh Badan Pelanconan Malaysia kepada syarikat berkenaan?

4.         Sama ada beliau sedar bahawa Developtrends Sdn Bhd, yang berkongsi pejabat pendaftaran yang sama dengan Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd dan Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd, adalah pemegang syer di Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd?

5.         Sama ada beliau sedar Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai adalah merupakan seorang pengarah Konsortium Perikanan Nasional Bhd?

6.         Mengapa perlu ada keperluan untuk Badan Pelancongan Malaysia membatalkan tender pertama apabila butir-butir bagi tender tersebut telah diiklankan dengan betul di akhbar-akhbar dan telah pun ditutup?

7.         Sama ada benar bahawa ada satu “variation order” sebanyak RM10 juta untuk projek membina Malaysia Pavilion untuk Ekspo Shanghai Se Dunia 2010?

8.         Apakah asas Badan Pelancongan Malaysia menganugerahkan kontrak bagi membina bangunan Pavilion Malaysia ke Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd, apabila ia tidak mempunyai pengalaman terdahulu dalam bidang pembinaan, berbanding para pembida-pembida lain, yang mempunyai rekod-rekod prestasi yang baik/mahupun pengalaman-pengalaman untuk menceburi projek tersebut?

9.         Mengapa Badan Pelancongan Malaysia atau Kementerian Pelancongan masih belum mengumumkan fakta bahawa Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd telah dianugerahkan kontrak untuk membina Pavilion Malaysia di Ekspo Shanghai Se Dunia 2010?

    She said that Venturepharm has no political connections and the contract was awarded by way of open tender. Yes, why terminate the first tender. Was it because Venturepharm was not in the tender?

    Why venturepharm joined the second tender after Ng Yen Yen took over? If it is interested in the project, why it didn’t participate in the first tender?

    I pitied those established companies who have tendered. They must have made great efforts by working very hard for it hoping to win and also spent quite a large sum of money and it is is fair for that lady to make a fair choice by merits only. To give it to a small firm with no building and designing experience is beyond any reasonable thinking person. I wonder if it is true that the company who won the bid is in some way related to her son. Worth checking it out if it’s true though before we make any accusation. If so she is really unreasonable and I hope the authorities will get to the bottom of it. Getting a truly good reputable firm with a truly good design will be beneficial to Malaysia as the Shanghai Expo will be visited by many throughout the world. It apparently will be as big as the Peking Olympic. I have seen pictures of some of the pavilions such as the French and the British pavilions on CCTV and they are really exceptional and we must be up to that standard to compete to give Malaysia a good name…..thus the one that give the best design must win and not for other reasons.

    Ad Suria or MST Ad Suria were the chaps who organized the “Eye of Malaysia”..which was a larger scam. Well AD would have done a better job since they import almost everything from the UK, hence the price tag i guess…im guessing VenturePharm is like Ad Suria where u have a company, with no experience what-so-ever in organizing exhibitions of this scale, going to a foreign country and making Malaysians look like fools… do u know the budget for the Eye of Malaysia? well…im guessing it cost more than the Singapore Flyer that’s 3 times the height of our local wheel. *sigh*…out of all of them, (although i hate singapore) imho, PICO would have made us look very good in shanghai…but i guess it’s not the case la…haha..

    Ng Yen Yen was talking rubbish. The political links of Venturepharm Asia SB are all over the place. Received the Technofund grant of RM5.36 million to do biofeed research and development from MOSTI and now got a contract to build the Malaysia’s Pavilion for the 2010 World Expo.

    Ng Yen Yen must be held accountable for the award of this project because Venturepharm Asia SB has no experience whatsoever in construction work.

    “Not involve in the board decision” What is Ng Yen Yen’s role as a Minister then? Does it imply that a Minister need not to make any decision, or a Minister can slip away from accusation when something is happened? If she is not involved, will she be aware of the final decision then? If she is aware and knew that something is not right, why didn’t she question and put the project on hold? No authority? Who else has it?

    Venturepharm Asia Sdn Bhd RM19,999,000.00 —> HAHAHAHA! 1 thousand Ringgit discount from Venturepharm to our Tourism Board of Malaysia? What a ‘coincidence’ to the total sum of budget of the project.

    Did Ng Yen Yen inform the rest of the tender about the budget limitation? If not, what if all tenders submitted their projects more than 20mil? Calling for another tender again because of out of budget?

    Previous tenderer did not meet the theme of the Expo? YB why not you suggest all the tenderer to reveal their design and let us the tax payer to judge in a fair manner? Frankly I read the newspaper today and I really find that it looks more like a Thailand’s temple than anything that representing Malaysia.

    Engage someone who does not has the track record in building an Expo? I don’t judge the capability of the zero track record company, however, I salute the gut of Ng Yen Yen while making/allowing this decision. It is as if she will allow a fresh graduate doctor to do a brain transplant for her.

    What I would like to voice up, as a MALAYSIAN, as a TAX PAYER, I want something that can be proud of as a Malaysian living in Malaysia instead of this kind of rubbish excuses and products! I don’t want to be looked like a fool when I travel to overseas and being asked question like “are you Malaysian still living in the trees sometimes?” (That was the question asked 6 years ago by an American!)

    NG YEN YEN, is she trying to BURN our TAX PAYER MONEY by making all MALAYSIAN look like a fool (or semi Thai- Malaysian?) in the eye of world?

    Well done CK for tapping in to this issue and uncovering a very smelly rat.

    Someone should definitely talk to the companies that were involved in both tenders, which have no doubt spent countless amounts money, time and effort bidding for a worthless course.
    No political link? Perhaps more of a ‘family link’ seeing that the tender was won by a company in which her son was working for.

    We all support further investigation to bring justice to all who have been effected by this outrageous scam.

    This is indeed a very substatiative blow by blow account of the case that is before us.Blatantly its abuse of power and corruption at its best.It can’t get any larger than this as all the evidence and facts are before us.

    Rightfully, its very conclusive.The Secretary General of The Ministry of Tourism must also stand and account for this gross misconduct of his officials.His ‘lame duck’ Letter to the Editor in the Sun is the worst account of a so called rebuttal.I am sure that the powers that be could get better people to staff the Communications Department.Call a spade a spade…

    “The person known as Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai is a close friend of Ng Yen Yen since she was the deputy Minister of culture and Tourism.”

    Thats a fact and no one can run from that.I am also told that she is very ‘buddy-based’ with some of the officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs(KLN), in China and many are recipients of her “kind generosity”,including the Malaysian Ambassador to China( more Evidence will be provided) and the very able Consul General of Malaysia in Guangzhou.

    Above all this there is also the element of smuggling that the Chinese and Malaysian authorities need to look at (more information will me made available)

    Doing business above board and getting a bit of facilitators fee, is something that many of us can learn to deal with.But not at the expense of Malaysia but certainly not be involved in high level corruption.

    This is something that has to be highlighted as I consider this treason against the nation.

    Malaysian and China authorities must stand and correct this gross act of crime and charge those found guilty of collaborating with this “syndicate.

    Datuk Dr On Hong Peng (the Director General of Ministry of Tourism) was talking rubbish in his letter to the editor of The Sun. He said that the award of the Malaysia’s pavilion was made by open tender and all rules have been followed. what a stupid statement!

    Tell us why the first tender was already closed. When Ng Yen yen was appointed Minister of Tourism on 10-04-2009, why did she canceled it and open up another tender?

    Dr Cock is asking Datuk Dr On: Please provide answers to those questions asked by YB Wee in his blog on this issue. If you cannot provide answers to these simple questions then the Minister and you should immediately tender your resignation.

    Dr On, please stop being an emperor’s apologist.

    The government should do thorough check on this woman Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai, who is a Taiwanese by birth and obtained Malaysian citizenship. She seems to be very powerful in government in many ministries.

    MACC must commence investigation into her activities and those contracts/projects that she and/or companies related to her have obtained.

    I do know about this Taiwanese woman. She is extremely closed with our consular general in Guangzhou and the embassy staff.

    Please commence investigate and a lot of things will be revealed.

    You seemed to know a lot about this Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai. I also know about her nonsense in the Tourism Ministry since early 2000. You should inform YB to expose more about this Taiwanese woman.

    Ng Yen Yen should not talk rubbish by saying that there was no political link at all between Venturepharm and the Ministry. Too early to tell. Let MACC to investigate first.

    I am sure that a thorough investigations on this Taiwanese woman will reveal many stories that will shake the nation.

    Ceiling price fixed at RM20 millions. Venturepharm sent in tender price RM19,999,000.00 and got the contract. Venturepharm was very accurate just RM1,000 less than Rm20 millions. I think that it should be given more projects by BN government. Venturepharm got Technofund and Expo project, definitely not enough!!

    Only Ng Yen Yen is blind. Is she really blind or willful blindness? The facts are clearly set out in Yb’s article. It is now for Ng Yen Yen to refute. I bet that she is not able to do so because it is a well research piece.

    History of Minangkabau

    The written history of Minangkabau started in the 14th century, with the introduction of Islam to West Sumatra, at the time of the gold trade with India and Aceh. By the 16th century Pariaman had become the main port, until Aceh people captured the harbour and took over the trade so that all trade from West Sumatra went through Badeh Aceh. Pepper cultivation then started to become important and West Sumatra became a leading pepper production area, involving, firstly, traders from India, China and Portugal and later the English and the Dutch. In 1763 the Dutch captured Padang and built a fortified trading post. The Portuguese Ambassador of that time became the first European to visit the Bukittingi royal palace.

    i’m writing to represent one of the many tender companies which had to bear the brunt of this conspiracy.

    The design we submitted was well-thought of and worked on for the past half a year by some of the best designers and architects in the country.
    A lot of money, time, hard work and true passion for the project was wasted.

    I would love to meet Dr Ng and ask her where we went wrong.

    I truly believe that any other design submitted would have been a more appropriate representation of Malaysia compared to an Indonesian ‘Minangkabau roof’, designed by a non-local….

    Shock to read that the design was not even by a Malaysian and even more shocking that Ng Yen Yen knew about it before accepting it! We have very talented designers and well known architectural and designer firms in Malaysia who have worked very hard and spent a lot of money to submit top grade design and was not even considered. How unfair and corrupt this really looks!
    I wonder if Ng Yen Yen is a real doctor. I dont think a real doctor can be so unprofessional and unfair. I hope the authorities will not just close an eye and let this pass. It seems to be heading that way judging from the lack of local press reports and publicity. Thanks to our caring politician like Wee Choo Keong or this will just be another hidden misdeed by a politician. Syabas Choo Keong.

    Belwo is the summary of the important points of YB Wee article:

    “Venturepharm a so-called pharmaceutical company was awarded with RM5.36 million of TechnoFund. It has no experience in research work. It had to rely on a questionable company XLW Inc, whose manager is Yang Keng Chiang. Yang Keng Chiang is also the managing director of Darley PR, whose chairman is Grace Chen Oyan Yun Shai. Darley PR got all the advertising contracts in China from Malaysia Tourism Board. Daro Worldwide Sdn Bhd got the contract to operate the Tourism Call Centre from Malaysia Tourism Board. Grace Chen Oan yun Shai’s son, Denis Chin Fook Kwon, is the director and shareholder of Daro Worldwide Sdn Bd, which shares the same registered office address with Venturepharm.

    Ms Ivy See, the former personal assistant of Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen when she was the Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism, joined Darley PR as executive director.”

    The above facts are very glaring. I hope that Najib and Koh Tsu Koon, the KPI Minister, call up Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen to explain the above salient points.

    What a scam!!! The BN government must stop messing around with the taxpayers’ money.

    When they get too greedy, they would get noticed. This is just a tip of the iceberg of what is happening in the whole government of Malaysia.

    The real story of tax payers is …. we pay taxes to serve the politicians, to serve their sons so that they can party it up in some club in KL .. worst of all, even chinese politicians ….

    The best thing is that as the Tourism Minister, she should know the long term harms it would cost Malaysia especially during this time of economy crisis that we can appoint a good experienced exhibition vendor to show off Malaysia’s beauty to its tourist in CHINA.

    Hullo …. I bet Malaysia’s booth would be next to countries like Singapore, Australia …. hence, simple effect of these screw ups: people would always think Bak Kut Teh originated from Singapore because of people like our dear Tourism Minister. When you are appointed, just do the job right!

    Just for the greed of maybe 30% margin of RM 9m (equiv to RM 3) ….. this would cost us billions of potential revenue in tourism.

    Message to Ng Yen Yen (you dont deserve the respect of datukship) … i hope you read this:
    Serve you right … know how to cover your tracks if you want to pocket … . Don’t get too greedy that you can’t even think of create more companies and have more proxies. Greed clouds the mind and judgement….. Sniff of laughter!

    1Malaysia is the theme of the pavilion. However, I’m not convinced that the minister understands the gist of the 8 values with reference to the awarded design and circumstances.

    1) Culture of Excellence : How can we portray it when the design is by non-Malaysians? It is an insult to the capabilities of talented Malaysian designers and architects.No wonder many Malaysian top consultants succeed elsewhere and not back in their home country.

    2) Perseverence : Scandal, greed, get-rich-quick…I doubt the minister practices perseverence in her quest to inflate her bank account. Perhaps, she does persevere in continuously lying to all Malaysians.

    3) Humility : Seems like the pavilion is a very PROUD gesture to show to the world that all Malaysians are actually INDONESIANS.

    4) Acceptance : our ministry cant even accept local works; thus we need to farm out resources to China, Taiwan.

    5) Loyalty : This scandal really challenges the loyalty of all Malaysians to the country and its crooked system.

    6) Meritocracy : there is no fairness as clearly indicated in the tender process .

    7) Education : obviously our education is below par, especially in the subject of history and geography. When did Minangkabau become a symbolic Malaysian icon? Only one out of 14 states in Malaysia embraces it due to the unique heritage of migration. To use it as a symbol is synonymous to glorifying Chinatown as the essence of UK/US/Australia

    8) Integrity : I am curious as to how she would react to this scandal when it gets overblown. I sense the pot is cracking up soon.

    The works by all other participants as examples par excellence.The Shaghai Expo 2010 promises to be the biggest event after the Olympics. Historically, it is such events that gave birth to icons as the Eiffel Tower in Paris… and it is historical that Malaysia has continued to be a blunder in this event year after year. Shame.

    I am wondering, if I may ask, how come none of us have been shown the design?

    Would you not want to show this “awesome” design to your fellow Malaysians before showing this – I am told an Indonesian inspired design, to the (I am sure now very confused) Chinese hosts in Shanghai?

    Whose paying for all this Ms. Minister, the Chinese or us Malaysians?

    If truly you say you are not involved/aware of any irregularities in this sad episode, please set it right before it becomes another sad, sad episode that we hardworking Malaysian’s end up paying from our hard earned money.

    Our PM has asked professionals overseas to return and yet we have politicians like Ng Yen Yen showing no interest in our own talents but only concern about her own selfish gain. Countries overseas, even Singapore are attracting professionals over offering them jobs and opportunities and showing how much they value the talents of our Malaysians. I hope Wee Choo Keong will bring this up to our PM so that he can be realistic and do something about it to attract our talented Malaysians to return home rather then just saying it without showing any effort to prove he really means it. First thing he can do is to discourage other politicians from doing what that Ng Yen Yen has just done by bringing her down and give good publicity while doing it if proper investigations really prove her to be so corrupted. Why isn’t “The Star” and “NST” reporting all these, I wonder? Even the Shanghai Expo official website are reporting and keeping up to date of what’s going on. This means that even other countries are aware of what’s going on in Malaysia and it is indeed very shameful.

    YB.
    My question is ‘why the price or offered price is only RM19,999,000?’

    The answer is because they know that the proposed tender value (RM19,999,000) is not exceeding RM20 million and can only be considered in the Tender Board ‘B’ of the Ministry which requires no rep from MOF. If they offered RM20 million or more, the decision can only be made by Tender Board ‘A’ which rep from MOF is mandatory. (SPP9/2009 replacing SPP2/1999). Rep from MOF is very strict in conducting procurement due deligent.

    Now you know why…..some fishy thing happened if you can fix with the jigsaw puzzle…

    That amount of money belongs to the “rakyat” of Malaysia. I’ve heard that Grace Oyan is also the manager of the Fuji Property Management Limited who manages the Malaysian (government) Building in Hong Kong SAR for almost 10 years now (not to mention her link with Guangzhou). I also heard that she and her business partner Ken Yang was awarded the tender to do the renovation of the malaysia building and other malaysian government properties in Hong Kong that costs millions of dollars a few years ago.

    It’s too obvious that she have a very strong connection with the government officials of Malaysia.

    I’m an architect by profession, and m totally disgusted by the ‘product’ produced by this Venturepharm company. If you are aware that this ‘product’ has created much disputations and was heavily critiqued in both political and design terms in both regionally and internationally as well. Just look at other country pavilion and you should get the whole idea of where we are now. I would also want to know the architect behind this design too seriously.

    If the current government wants to prove that they are running clean and much better than the last term, they shouldn’t have step into this and be smart enough to anticipate and avoid the controversies.

    But its all too obvious, and late isnt it?
