Another Party This Saturday

A call from TBRA (and active residents from Chee Seng Gardens, Straits Regency, Coastal Towers, Leader Garden, Solok Tan Jit Seng, Pearl Hill Town Houses & Diamond Villa) :

Come and join us ! Get some fresh air and new ideas.

COFFEE PARTY

on 21 March 2009 (this Saturday)
from 4.00 to 5.00 pm
- just an hour of your time !

Let’s SUPPORT the call to STOP all dangerous Hill Slope Development in Penang

Dear Residents of Tanjong Bunga,
· Are you living in fear of your home collapsing in the future due to a nearby dangerously steep hill slope development project?
· Are you fearful of the hill collapsing or a land slide?
· Are you fearful of nearby rock blasting that threatens the lives your family?
· Are you sick and tired of the constant lorries carting rocks and earth and covering roads with mud and dust?
· Do you want a more beautiful and green Penang?

If any of the answers above are yes, then come and support your neighbours speak up against irresponsible steep and dangerous hill slope development on:

1. Date – 21st March 2009 (Saturday)
2. Time – 4.00 to 5.00 pm
3. Venue – Solok Tan Jit Seng – behind Tanjong Bunga Secondary School- below the Mt Erskine reservoir (Lemba Permai side)

Our intention is to have a VERY peaceful yet meaningful gathering to highlight all the above. So, come to the Party, with a metal coffee pot or a pan so that we can share our coffee with others and do bring a wooden spoon too. We'll make some noise around the coffee.
Coffee and other refreshments will be provided.

Out of interest, I attended the "Coffee Party" on the 21st of March. I left the party with much dissapointment because:

1. The attendance was very low. In fact, only 2 or perhaps 3 families out of 8 families that lived in Solok Tan Jit Seng attended!
2. Not a single resident from the houses on stilts in Pearl Hill attended, or if there is, only a couple of them!
3. Nobody from the nearby Tanjung Bungah Secondary School attended!
4. Nobody from the surrounding areas, Jalan Tan Jit Seng, Jalan/ Lorong Geh Chong Keat, Jalan Ahmad bin Kasa, etc attended!

In fact, if a headcount was done, there are more policemen, reporters, outsiders (those not living in Hillside) and politicians attending than the residents themselves.

Dear TBRA,

My name is Goh Wei Liang, a blogger at A PIECE OF MY MIND http://manifestogwl.blogspot.com

I received a highlight comment from TBRA at my blog.

I have read through views and videos on this. I will assist in any form possible.

I will wait and see if there are any lawyers or any legal experts who can help out this matter of Tanjung Bunga hillside development.

If TBRA has any official statements or any expert findings on the projects' danger etc, feel free to forward it to me and I will be glad to publish it in my blog.

Hopefully, the relevant journalists and authorities as well as politicians who read my blog can shift their focus to Tanjung Bunga's case.


Sincerely,
Goh Wei Liang.
