SS19/1 Health And Gotong Royong Day


Dear Residents

It was another historic day for the residents in SS19/1 with the successfully launched of the ‘Health and Gotong Royong Day’ on the 5th December 2009. This event which was organised by the SS19/1 Residents’ Association with the cooperation from MPSJ Councillior for Zone 1 and ADUN Subang Jaya. About 100 residents attended the event which was held at the SS19/1G playground.

Residents were awaked in the early morning by sound of music and hypes of activities on the playground and its surrounding area. Huge skylift and rubbish collection lorries from Alam Flora and MPSJ were seen parking around the playground area.




The programme kick-off with a morning exercise intended to inculcate healthy living habit amongst the residents. Residents have gathered as early as 7.15am to participate in the exercise where they were introduced to the Qigong exercise and taught its significant movements and benefits. One of the Qigong participants was an 83 years old lady which has been practising Qigong for the past 10 years and still looks strong and healthy. Residents were then introduced to another set of exercise in the form of Line Dance. Melody of old dance songs then vibrated the surrounding area as residents’ practised the Line Dance movement to the tune of its music.



In her opening remark, Madam Theresa Ratnam Thong, MPSJ Councillor for Zone 1 reiterated the important of gotong royong, one way where residents can contribute and participate in the cleanness of the surrounding neighbourhood. Dr Roslan Mohamed Hussin, Penolong Pengarah Kanan, Bahagian Vektor & Kacauganggu, Jabatan Kesihatan MPSJ later briefed the residents on the awareness of Dengue disease and the life cycle of Aedes mosquitoes.



For the Gotong Royong, the residents were divided into several groups each given separate task such as collecting rubbish, trees pruning and walkabout activities. Madam Theresa, Dr. Roslan, MPSJ staffs and residents walked around the neighbourhood distributing pamphlets on Dengue prevention and inspecting houses for any signs of Aedes larvae. While there is still no Dengue cases reported in SS19/1 Subang Jaya thus far, the inspection revealed an alarming result. During the brief inspection, nearly half of houses inspected were found to have some traces of suspected Aedes larvae. Samples were taken and notices were given to the house owners and if the test on the sample confirms its Aedes larvae, the house owner will be fine RM100 by MPSJ for breeding Aedes mosquitoes.

The event was concluded at noon with YB Hannah Yeoh gives her closing remark, where she too reiterated the important of cleanness amongst the residents and the important of organising Gotong Royong. The residents were then served with light refreshment courtesy from JKP Zone 1 and contribution from the residents.

Conman And Foreign Currency

Dear All,

Enclosed is an experience of Puan Siti Mariam with conman and foreign currency. Be aware of such foreigners.

I want to share an interesting experience that happened to me on Friday
13th November 2009 at Sungai Buloh R&R around 8 pm. I had just came out of
the surau at the R&R after performing maghrib prayers there. As I got into
my car, another car with a small family inside pulled up behind me. The
driver, a young Arab man around 30 years of age gestured to me as if
wanting to ask me a question. I got out of my car and approached his car.
In the front seat was an old man, probably his father. In the back seat was
a middle-aged woman, probably his mother and a small girl, probably his
daughter. The windows were wound all down all the way and the interior
light was switched on. I could see all their faces clearly. He then asked
me whether the food served at the shops in the R&R were halal. I said "Of
course". Then he asked me whether the currency he had with him could be
used to buy the food there. He then took out his wallet. I saw that he had
a lot of cash. He pulled out a note and showed me a Singapore dollar note.
So I told him that he could not use Singapore dollars in Malaysia. “You can
only use Ringgits at the shop here, I said". He looked dejected and I felt
quite sorry for him and his family. They must have just arrived in
Malaysia, rented a car and must be on the way somewhere. They must also be
feeling quite hungry, I thought. He then got out of the car and asked me if
I could show him Ringgit notes to know how they look like. So I took out my
wallet and showed him a one Ringgit note. He then asked me if he can see
other bigger notes. So I showed him a RM10 note. Suddenly he put his hand
in my wallet and pulled out my RM50 notes. I was taken aback and felt quite
puzzled and quite annoyed. This guy is rude, I thought. He then started
showing the money to his relatives in the car. But before I could do
anything he suddenly put back all the money in my wallet which was still in
my hand. “Phew!” I said, to myself. I was worried in case he jumps into his
car and drive off with my RM50 notes. Then he asked me what the exchange
rate was for ringgit. As I
was telling him the current US-Ringgit exchange rate, he got back in his
car and asked me whether I had RM100 notes to change with him.
I said no but I said maybe KFC would accept credit cards from him so that
he and his family could have dinner. He appeared not to be interested,
thanked me for my help, smiled and started driving away and waving goodbye
to me. I stood there puzzled because t thought they were hungry.


Anyway, I got back in my car. Then I started feeling suspicious, opened my
wallet and started counting my money. I knew I had more than RM400 in my
wallet because I had just withdrawn RM500 from the ATM the day before and
had only spent less than RM100 since. I should
have around eight pieces of RM50 notes, some RM10 notes and a few RM1
notes. But when I counted my money, there were only three pieces of
RM50 notes. The rest were RM1 notes and some RM10 notes. I was really
puzzled. So I sat there and carefully counted the notes again because maybe
I did not count properly. Again I only found three RM50 notes. That is
really odd, I said to myself. What happened to my other RM50 notes. Then I
drove home. But I was beginning to suspect that the Arab guy had something
to do with my missing RM50 notes. Even though he put all the notes back in
my wallet, perhaps he must have played a trick on me. I had a suspicion
that the guy did a `magic trick' with my money when he took the money out
of my wallet. Maybe he had swapped RM1 notes with my RM50 notes without me
noticing and that was probably the reason why I did not realize that he
took the RM50 notes from me. But I was not sure and was trying to recall
exactly how much money I had in my wallet before the incident. On the way
home, I stopped at a surau near my house to pray Isha'. After the prayers I
related my experience to my friends. Before I could even finish three
sentences, one friend asked me whether the guy wanted to exchange foreign
currencies with me because an Arab man had tried to con him the same way at
the Shah Alam mosque. But the conman was not successful because he was not
carrying much cash that day. Another friend, En. Aziz , a taxi driver,
confirmed with me that incidents involving an Arab man with a family
stealing people's money while pretending to be interested in exchanging
currencies have been happening at various R&Rs such as at Bukit Jalil and
also Sungai Buloh. The modus operandi were almost the same. Just some
slight variations depending on the amount of money you have with you. So Ii
concluded that I was indeed a victim of a slick conman whose fingers were
so quick that I failed to notice the swapping of RM1 notes for my RM50
notes in front of my eyes. Luckily I only had a few hundred Ringgits in my
wallet so my loss was not too big. En Aziz told me that a friend of his
lost RM3 thousand to an Arab guy, probably the same guy. That friend
happened to carry thousands of Ringgit with him on the day the conman
worked his slick hands on him, pretending to ask to exchange currencies
with him at a very favourable rates. By the time his friend found out that
he was shortchanged by RM 3 thousand, the guy had already driven off in his
silver coloured car.
So friends, be careful if a man of Middle Eastern appearance approaches you
and requests to exchange foreign currencies. I have no problem if you wish
to forward this message to as many of your relatives and friends to prevent
them from being conned by this same man who is probably still driving
around looking for new unsuspecting victims.

Crime Can Happen Anywhere To Any Person

Dear Residents

It has been a while seen I posted the crimes committed in Subang Jaya especially in SS19/1. Fortunately, there has not been any crime committed in our residents for me to post in this blog based on the latest information received by the Committee. However, as it also being said, crimes can happen anywhere and to any person. Our dear friend, Robert from SJ Alert which has been instrument in crime prevention and information provider for residents of Subang Jaya had himself been a victim of a crime.

Below is his posting in SJ Alert for our information and thought that crime can happen anywhere to any person.

Dear Residents

I went to Carrefour Subang Jaya with the family on Monday 26/10/2009 at about 8.00pm to get a quick dinner remembering that a few weeks back someone reported to SJ Alert EMS that her car was broken into whilst she was there. I parked the car very close to the 3rd floor entrance as I normally do, I don't just park in any available parking space and most times I would even wait for such parking space to become available.

Having found what I thought was a safe enough place (four cars away and facing the entrance), I thought nothing of leaving my Computer & Digital cameras in the car. These items were well hidden behind the driver's seat. It was not possible to see inside the rear of the car as I have very heavy tints and sun shades that permanently covered the rear windows. We went our merry way, thinking that since the period at Carrefour would be very short it would be okay,

We finally did not have Dinner at Carrefour and returned to the car at around 9.15pm to find that the rear driver's window of my car was smashed and items inside removed. I will post the pictures that I took with my mobile phones at a later date when my Computer system is purchased.

What I lost

These are the Material things that were stolen1. Dell Vostro Notebook (Service Tag No.D94FS1S / Express Service Code: 288-498-206-08) which I was bringing home to re-install Windows Vista Business together with all the original CDs, external Hard Disks, My Internet Banking Security Cards and Internet Banking Dongles, etc...2. A Canon 7.1 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera and 3. My newly purchased (02/10/09) Pentax Digital SLR Camera (Serial No. 3166127147442) & Lens (Serial No.6501617147392)., including a few hi capacity SDHC Cards and other photographic accessories... I was to use the camera the next day to take pictures of the various proposed LRT sites to highlight at the www.lrttosubangjaya.blogspot.com website so that residents have a better perspective when they submit their comments and feedbacks.Total cost of my carelessness: RM6,000.00

What is not so easy to replace
What I also lost was 20days of my working life (according to my last full backup of my Hard Disk), these included almost all the emails and files that I used to setup the LRT to Subang Jaya/USJ Website, SJ Alert members registration and other work related research and more than 2500 pictures I took with the new camera during my recent overseas trips.

Consolation
There was a witness who saw the incident (he works as a promoter at Carrefour). He said that as he was parking his car at about 8.45pm, he noticed a small sized Chinese looking guy reaching into and removing things from my car and immediately ran to a waiting motorcycle upon been spotted. This witness says he is able to identify the criminal and that he was willing to help the Police and Carrefour to spot the crook if he should decide to return to do his dirty deed again..

My apologies

I am sorry that I have added to the crime statistics in Subang Jaya, that I am one very careful person with regards to ensuring that there are no opportunities for crime to happen actually amounts to nothing. I suppose you can say that no one is immune to Crime, we can only always remember to be vigilant to prevent it from happening..I have been dispensing advice as if I was some expert in Crime prevention sadly I have been brought down to earth.

Remedial Action

Together with Mr. Teoh of SJ Echo, we approached the management of Carrefour Subang Jaya the very next day. And after a long discussion with Mr. Antoine Gerrier - the Store Director, Mr. Micheal Chang the Security Officer in the presence of Ms Kumutha Veeriah the Customer Care Manager, we have been assured that Carrefour Subang Jaya will dispense their Corporate responsibilities by taking immediate steps to prevent another such incident from happening in their premises and to their customers, these steps include::

1. Brightening all Car Park areas in Carrefour Subang Jaya
2. Installing CCTV around the Car park areas with clear indications to would-be criminals that the area is CCTV monitored
3. Increased regular patrols by their security personnel

all these to be implemented within 2 weeks from the date of our meeting. We have also been invited by Mr. Antoine Gerrier to make a joint inspection together with the Police that the needful has been done.

By the way Antoine is now a member of SJ Alert.

Crime prevention is a shared responsibility.... there I go again, dispensing advice, sorry..

And YES a Police report was made.

Regards
Robert

Balai Polis SS17 Subang Jaya Open House




Dear Residents

Balai Polis SS17 Subang Jaya organized an open house on 11th October 2009 at 8.30pm in conjunction with the ‘Hari Raya Aidil Fitri’ celebration. The event was held at the police’s quarter car park behind the balai. Around 500 residents and police family members attended the event. At hand to receive the quests was the Ketua Balai, Chief Inspektor Tuan Sulaiman Baputty and Sub Inspektor Tuan Ariffin Abu Seman.

Amongst the invited guests were Subang Jaya Deputy OCPD, Supt Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Majid, YB Hannah Yeoh, Adun Subang Jaya , Puan Theresa Ratnam Thong, MPSJ Councillor for Zone 1, senior police personals, representative from various residents associations and community leaders.



It’s also an occasion where our men and women in blue eased themselves after days of tough crime prevention works and revealed their singing talents. Guests were entertained with few song sung by these talented personals while enjoying varieties of foods on offer such as nasi minyak, satay and cendol.

The highlight of the occasion was the presentation of certificate of appointment as Balai Polis Subang Jaya Community Policing Working Committee. The certificate was presented by Supt Abdul Aziz. Two of our residents’ committee members, En Mohamad Noh and Haji Mohd Fuad were presented with these certificates which act as a liaising coordinator between the police and the members of the public in crime prevention.

The event was also a good avenue for community leaders alike to meet and exchange experiences and ideas and at the same time forging better cooperation and understanding with the Polis for the betterment of the Subang Jaya community.

Syabas To Our Security Guards!!

Dear Residents

It has been nearly six months since we adopted the security protocol in our area. While we cannot prevent 100% crime from happening but in general the security in our area has improved tremendously. Having security guards manning the six (6) entrances to our area and constant patrolling have created sense of security to the residents. The residents can now have peace of mind going to bed at night without constant fear of break-ins.

Our security services has transformed for better as time progresses. These security guards need to be commended. They are now more alert and have adapted well in recognising and differentiating residents from none residents.

I too have experienced the efficiency of our security guards. On 18th October 2009, I and my family were out attending my sister’s Raya Open House when I noticed a missed call on my phone. Upon calling the number, it was our security guard who had called me to inform that one side of my auto gate was opened and after ensuring everything was alright they manually closed the gate.

When I came back, the auto gate was closed and after reviewing my CCTV, I noticed that the gate was left open by my sons who forgot to close the gate when they went out. Subsequently, the security on motorbike passed by and stopped to look at my opened auto gate. I could see him making a phone call and subsequently closed the gate manually. I’m not the only resident who has encountered these experiences from our security guards. Below is the comment by one of our resident to our Secretary.

Dear Hj Mohd Noh,

I would like to compliment our security services based on a recent experience that I encounter.

This happened last Friday early morning. At about 3.30am, my house alarm triggered. Upon checking the alarm control unit, it was discovered that the problem was located at the ground floor, back quadrant of my house. I immediately disarmed the alarm and called the security number. In less than 2 minutes, the security team consisting of two personnel were already at my premises combing the house area. They spent quite some time going through the procedures and even went to the extent to checking inside the drains located at the front, side and back of the house. Until they were completely satisfied, they then left the house after I felt it was safe for them to leave. In the morning, the supervisor called me again to check whether everything was okay.

The cause of the alarm triggering may be the contributed by other factors besides solely by thieves but the security personnel did not take any half chances but instead went through a thorough procedure in ensuring our safety. This was indeed a commendable service by our security team in ensuring the safety of residence of SS19/1.

Also, a neighbour of mine who did not subscribe to the security services recently told me that he was stopped by the security personnel at the entry point after returning at about 2am caused he did not have the security sticker on his car. After a few minutes of convincing the security personnel, he was finally allowed in but was escorted till his house by security personnel. This is to ensure that he was a genuine resident. While he was a bit annoyed with the inconvenience caused, he nevertheless was pleased with way the security team went about with their duties. I hope he will sign up soon!

My gratitude to the Residence Association and Security team. The community feels much safer now.

Please make the cheque (value Rm 180) payable to Pertubuhan Penduduk Jalan SS 19/1 Subang Jaya. Payments can be dropped at 209 Jalan SS 19/1F or guard houses or to our Jalan
Representative. It would be greatly appreciated if all payments can be in by 30th October 2009.
Thank you. Your prompt payment is greatly appreciated.
For those residents who have not subscribed to the protocol please do so. Relevant forms are available at the guard houses.

Programme Balik Kampong has been a Success!!


Dear Residents

Our ‘Balik Kampong Programme’ in it maiden launched has been successful. Introduced for the first time during the long Hari Raya Aidil Fitri holiday, it’s attracted some 30 residents to fill up the Balik Kampong forms with our security guards. Zero incidents were reported throughout the one week holiday.


Balik Kampong Programme is a programme organised by the SS19/1 Residents Association to its member residents who are going away for the Raya holiday by informing the security guards via the form. The security guards will then monitor those houses regularly and residents will be given visiting reports slip inside their mail box. This programme mirror the Kempen “Balik Kampong – Rumah Selamat” organised by the Polis.


The Committee has decided to continue and extent this service to member residents who are going for long holiday or business trip. This service is only meant for member of the Association which subscribed to the security protocol

It's not a matter of choice

Article in New Straits Times dated 2009/09/30

By Dawn Chan

KUALA LUMPUR: More communities are resorting to putting up boom gates and hiring security guards in an effort to check the rising crime rate in their neighbourhoods.

While the move, generally, has the support of the majority, some residents are irked by it as they say it is an inconvenience.

Those who are against the setting up of guarded communities said it was the duty of the police and other authorities to ensure the safety of the neighbourhoods.

Many claimed that security guards hired to patrol the areas had no right to stop them from using a public road, which sometimes serves as a shortcut. They also said that the guards had no right to ask for their identification documents.

SS19/1 Residents' Association secretary Mohd Noh Samik said residents have no choice but to have a guarded community after frequent occurrences of snatch thefts in the neighbourhood.

"There were cases almost every other day as there was no restriction on vehicles going through our neighbourhood. Some of them use the residential roads in our area as shortcuts to other areas," he said.

Noh said the association has set up four guardhouses around SS19/1, which has 640 houses. The area has been divided into two zones for security guards to patrol on motorcycles every 20 minutes.

From midnight to 6am, lanes going into the neighbourhood are reduced to one and vehicles without stickers are only allowed in after their car registration numbers had been recorded.

Most residents pay between RM100 and RM200 a month for the services of the guards but to them, the money is worth it as they have peace of mind.

Noh said since the implementation of the guarded community project, there had hardly been any snatch theft cases.

Subang Jaya municipal council president Datuk Adnan Mohd Ikshan said almost all neighbourhoods within its jurisdiction had been given the green light to implement the concept.

Although several are deemed "illegal", Adnan said the council had refrained from tearing down the structures as long as they did not cause a friction between residents who were in favour and those who were against it.

Bandar Sri Damansara Residents' Association president Ravindran Raman Kutty said the rising number of robberies, petty thefts and burglary prompted the residents to take action.

"Areas like Margosa, Kenanga, Saga, Chempaka, Ara, Damar and Tanjung are guarded 24 hours. We only have one exit and one entry into our township," he said.

Ravindran said the public residential roads were barricaded after 11pm and car stickers were given to residents. Visitors are required to stop and identify themselves at the guardhouse.

The crime index, he said, had dropped by 80 per cent since the concept was implemented.

Jalan Datuk Sulaiman residents' association also implemented the guarded concept recently to curb crime. Chairman Mokhtar Md Yasin said they worked closely with Kuala Lumpur City Hall's branch in Taman Tun Dr Ismail to ensure that they did not break any laws.

Incident Free Festive Season

Dear All Members Of SS 19/1 Community,

I wish to welcome back all our members who have been away during the festive season. While we are all away our security provider has been working very hard to ensure safety in our houses. I am glad to see that this festive season has been incident free in our community. I am sure for those members who have been away will be surprised to see bundles of papers in their letter boxes. The longer you are away more papers will be stuffed. These papers are status reports filed by our security provider. So next time while you are away please leave the balik kampong form at the guard houses and the same "balik kampong service" will be provided. I wish to emphasize that this service is only to those who have subscribe to our security protocol.

It is sad that there are residents who do not subscribe to our security protocol expect the same service to be provided to them. (They also leave the balik kampong form at the guard houses). I have informed the security provider not to entertain these people. They just want a free ride at the expense of others. For those of you who have not subscribe to the security protocol or have not paid the Aug-Oct subscription please make the necessary payment. By doing so you will have the peace of mind when you are away.

Let us all make SS 19/1 a better place to stay.

More News On The AGM


Dear Residents



It was a historical day for all of us residents of SS19/1. The inaugural Annual General Meeting for the SS19/1 Residents Association was held on 13th September 2009 at 2.45pm at Surau Al-Ikhlas. The heavy down pour during the meeting failed to dampen the spirit of about 54 members who attended the AGM. All the resolutions and proposals were adopted that includes the Association’s Constitutions, the adoption of Security Protocol as the main purpose of the Association and increase in payment limits for the committees. The AGM also unanimously re-elected the previous Pro Tem committees as the 1st SS19/1 Residents Association Committee Members for 2009/2010 session with all the Pro Tem committee members retained their respective post. The only new post created was Timbalan Yang Di Pertua which was contested with Mr Chin Fook Khiang narrowly beat Mr Lau Eng Dian for the post.


It was also a nostalgic moment for the Pro Tem Committees and the residents of SS19/1 as it was at the same place where the first residents meeting was held on 11st January 2009 to discuss the security issues in SS19/1 and the proposal to form SS19/1 Residents Association. After nearly 8 months, all the hard worked and dedication by the Pro Tem Committees with the support and understanding from the residents, the efforts pays off and now SS19/1 can be proud that we have a legally formed residents association while residents in other location are still struggling to form one. Even critics within our residents then gave the Pro Tem Committees and its security protocol a survival life span of only three months while others skeptic said they will only participate after the formation of the proper RA. But then majority of the residents believed, committed and entrusted the Pro tem committee with these mammoth tasks and today we and they can feels validated.

It will not be complete without mentioning the dedication of some of the residents who have contributed so much for the benefits of the whole residents. I on behalf of the Pro Tem committees would like to thanks Ms. Penny who have worked tirelessly through the duration since the start of security protocol, encouraging residents to join the security protocol and at time she herself has to endures numerous complains and set back. I would also like to thanks Mr. James Ding who have helped and advised the committees on numerous legal issues pertaining to the formation of the RA as well as on the security protocol. There also others who have helped directly and indirectly giving advises and inputs to the formation of the RA and the implementation of the security protocol. Word of appreciations and thanks should also be given to Chief Inspektor Tuan Sulaiman Baputty and Sub Inspektor Tuan Haji Ariffin Abu Seman from Balai Polis Subang Jaya for their support and keeping us update on general security condition in Subang Jaya.

Balik Kampung Form

Dear Members Of SS 19/1 Community,

In 5 days time the festive season of Hari Raya Aidil Fitry will start and as usual many of us will be going back to our kampung. For those who are members of security protocol of SS 19/1 who will be away during the festive season please notify our security prThovider. This can be done by filling the Balik Kampung Form available at all the guard posts. Send the duly completed form to the nearest guard post. This is to facilitate the security provider in providing security services while you are away. This is only for those who are members of security protocol.

Breaking Fast With ADUN









Dear Resident
For those who were at the Surau Al-Ikhlas in SS19/1 for breaking fast and Maghrib prayer were surprised to see a petite young women in baju kurung and scarf sitting and greeting them. She is none other than our Subang Jaya Adun YB Hannah Yeoh who despite her tight schedules made time to meet with the residents in SS19/1 and breaking fast together. Amongst the attendance were the Surau Al-Ikhlas committee members and the SS19/1 Residents Association Pro tem committee members. It was a unique scene where Muslims and non Muslims breaking fast together in Surau compound with sound of azan Maghrib in the background. Let make this uniqueness a true quality of SS19/1 residents.



In her short speech, YB Hannah Yeoh said for the month of Ramadan, she is contributing RM1,000-00 to each Surau around Subang Jaya in additional of RM2,000-00 annual allocations. In respond to the request made by Tuan Haji Radin, the Residents Association Pro Tem Chairman on issue of fencing, according to her, MPSJ has recently set-up a committee to study the issue while on issues of cutting down old trees branches, she agrees to forward these request to Madam Theresa Ratnam Thong, MPSJ Councillor for Subang Jaya. On surfacing of road, these depend on budget allocations as priorities are given for those areas without access road.



About 100 including women and children attended the breaking fast.

Relax and Enjoy

Dear Residents

I received this interesting email from my colleague which I would like to share with all of you. Sometime we need to relax and enjoy some humour. While some of you might have already seen this email, this is for the benefit for those who have not.
5 minute - Management Course

Lesson 1:

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.' After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?' 'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies. 'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'


Moral of the story:

If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2:

A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.' Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

Moral of the story:

If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Lesson 3:

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.' 'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.' Puff! She's gone. 'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep.. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.' Puff! He's gone. 'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.'

Moral of the story:

Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 4:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?' The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.' So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:

To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson 5:
A turkey was chatting with a bull. 'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.' 'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.' The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Moral of the story:

Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson 6:

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lays there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Morals of the story:


(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.


(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.


(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!


Congratulations! !!

HAPPY MERDEKA DAY!

Dear Residents

We sincerest wish to all Malaysians “HAPPY 52nd MERDEKA DAY” and May we continue live happily and peacefully together as One nation One Malaysia for many years to come. We should appreciate the sacrifice our forefathers had made and overcame the struggled for our Independence without regards to race or religion.


As wrote by Garry Gamble in ‘Remembering our first Independence Day’ on 4th of July 2009, It is only that when we recalled the past that we best see our way into the uncertain future. It is in remembering what happened and why it happened that we rediscover the guiding principles by which our lives should be governed.

Let our children and next generation be taught the lesson of a brave and earnest loyalty to our country ‘Malaysia’ and to each other without differentiating race and religion. In the spirit of ‘Merdeka’ in this still young nation, we should work together as one nation and with one pride. Let strife and rivalry exist only in enterprises for the public good.

May God continue to bless Malaysia!


MERDEKA ! MERDEKA ! MERDEKA!

Tek Tarik Session

Dear Residents


On Wednesday 19/8/2009 after our committee meeting as usual we had our teh tarik session at restaurant Syed in SS19/6. However what made our teh tarik session this time around special was the presence of the RA pro tem committees from SS19/4A. They were there to request our help and input on how to setup their RA and the selection of Security Company. It was a heart warming occasion as for the first time we have extended our friendship and share experience with our neighbouring residents from SS19/4A. The same experienced we received when we went to meet our RA’s friends in USJ11/3 for their inputs.

None of us want to be part of the polis crime statistics which was for the very reason the RA was formed. However, the consequence of the RA formation has far more implication than its original intended. During the teh tarik session, all of us agreed that the concerned over security and safety has united all the residents from all walks of life and races. We now know more about our neighbourhood then we used too. I myself have stays in SS19/1 since 1988 and amongst the early few who have moved in but only in 2009 or 21 years later I tend to know more of my neighbourhood from various races then I used to. There is no single purpose to do that as all of us city dwellers spend more time at work than at home.

As we part each other’s half hour after midnight, I couldn’t stop thinking about how far we have gone through from a simple ideas and concepts formulated during the residents meeting in February into a reality after enduring several obstacles and initial hardship, the same predicament that those guys in SS19/4A will be facing.


Below are the emails correspondance ( with permission) by our friends in SS19/4A in their quest to find solution to their security problem.

Dear Hannah,
I would like to inform you that my neighbor, in Jln SS19/4A, when she came back from work yesterday at about 6pm, her house was in a shamble. It seems that 4 Indians broke into her house yesterday afternoon by climbing over the fence or the front gate. They entered the house through the back portion. The police found some prints but these burglars wear gloves. She was in a complete shock as she was staying alone. Luckily she was not at home then. Otherwise it could be worse.
At the same time, another house was also robbed by the same group yesterday at Jln SS19/4C. This is very very troubling. How can we live in this sort of way.
Whether fortunately or unfortunately my wife was at home yesterday with my daughter. She took off yesterday to attend to something. Can you imagine what could have happened if these robbers have chosen my house yesterday? You all must do something about this.


I have seen you both, Hannah & Theresa during the recent SS19 dialogue and and we really appreciate what you both are trying to do to improve the security and the neighborhood. However, we need to do something about this security issue urgently. We are all living with fear and under duress. Is there anything at all that you can help?

If not, can you try to assist to set up proper Resident Associations for all in Subang & USJ area? I know that some RAs have already been set up but there are still many in Subang & USJ where there is no proper RAs and as a result, there is lack of a co-ordinated approach towards security. The neighbors are not properly organized and as a result, the security in the area is totally lacking. Our SS19/4A is in the midst of setting up the security by our own committee in our row but we do not have a formal RA set up. I think that a formal set up would be very good to foster better relationship not only amongst the neighbors but with the authorities as well as it would assist future organization work. Can you kindly assist to push for this so that each Jalan and area have a proper RA set up?

If you have better ideas or better advice for us all on security, please let us know. We have heard enough of the lack of manpower by the police. To me, that is totally not acceptable. How can the Government of the day not have sufficient manpower to provide basic security to the people? This is our basic right and we should demand that and expect it. As I said earlier, if each household in Subang municipality pays a sum of even RM 30 per month, with a population of about 500,000, that would be at least RM3million per month or RM36million per year (assuming about 100,000 houses in MPSJ area). It is better for us to pay even RM50 per household per month (or about RM60million per year) to the Police rather than private security companies who are all doing a very poor job.
We are appealing for help.

Regards,
B. P. Chow

Subject: Re: SS19/4 - issue of gated and guarded community & RA

Dear Theresa,


Thank you for your prompt reply. Also pardon our ignorance. Most of us have been staying in SS19 for the past 20 years, especially in SS19/4A. However living in city area means we hardly know each other. However the recent security crisis has resulted in our immediate neighbors in SS19/4A to know each other for the first time. As I have said, in the past, we do not know anything about the RA & RT. With these burglaries in SS19/4A (2 cases within a month), SS19/4C (yesterday), SS19/6A late last week, it shows that there is an urgent need for us to organize ourselves properly. We had a meeting today for majority of the neighbors in SS19/4A and we would like to know how to organize ourselves further by getting our Resident Association for SS19/4A. Perhaps there was another RA for SS19/4 but we (or at least I) in SS19/4A are not aware of any RA for our area.
So questions are:
1. Which RA is active in our area?
2. Would that RA also cover SS19/4A?
3. How can we contact the person or committee?
4. If existing RA does not cover our road, how do we go about to register our own RA to cover SS19/4A? We would like to get this RA immediately as we would like to implement our security as soon as possible. When our SS19/4A neighbors started talking about 3 weeks ago (because of a break in), we certainly did not think that another of our neighbors would be targeted. Within 3 weeks, 2 houses out of our row of only 41 houses is like 9.7%. All in, we have more than 25% of the houses in our road have experience some break in or some security problem. So how long more we got to wait before things would start to improve? Can someone kindly provide some information - on getting RA registered and on any advice on security?
I do hope that someone can kindly assist.


Thank you,
B. P. Chow, staying in SS19/4A.

Mr. Chow and Mr. Lee,

Greetings, this is chin fr SS19/1. Because of the support of many, incl. MPSJ, Theresa, ADUN YB Hannah, SJ Police, the support of abt 400 residences in SS19/1, we got ours to a good start, after a glitches in the beginning. The Protem Committee's efforts, esp. the dedication of Mohd Noh Samik (our Secretary), plus the co-operation of many, all these, make it happen. Suffice to say that our guarded community now is a safer neighborhood now.

We usually have a teh tarik session after our Wednesday committee mtg, this Wed is one. Do join us for teh tarik, we can share what works now, what have failed to work in the past. Our tt session starts 11 pm plus. Drop us your contact, will let you know the precise time of our tt session at Restoran Desa, SS19/1.

Thanks,

chin

Dear Guys,

I would like to thank all of you for your kind assistance extended to us, your Neighbors from SS19/4A. The information collected by us has been invaluable and enriching for us who are forming a new RA for our area. It was great that we are able to see real muhibbah in the gathering of all races. I am also very impressed that your committee is able to meet at the Surau. All this was done without any external help and it gives us all a hope for our community and for our country.
I do hope that that the neighbors in our road, SS19/4A is able to emulate the close bond and your spirit of co-operation, such as spending way past midnight to share your experience and provide good advice to your neighbors. You guys deserve to have a medal, if we ever print one.
Thank you, Guys. We do hope to be able to reciprocate. If there are any new developments, we shall be in contact with you all again.
Best personal regards to all,


B. p. Chow, resident in SS19/4A.
