YB Mr Sim Tze Tzin’s Message for our Malaysia Day

I would like to wish all Malaysians, especially Taman Sri Nibong residents,  “Happy Malaysia Day” and  “Congratulations to TSNRA for 10 excellent years”.

We started as a beautiful and hopeful country first by gaining independence from the British in 1957,  then by forming the Malaysia federation with Sabah and Sarawak in 1963. Therefore, today 46 years later, it is very important to reflect and resolve to build Malaysia to become a better place.

Our forefathers fought to gain independence from colonial masters. As a young Generation Malaysian, I am truly thankful for their contributions. Today, we face a different set of problems and challenges. Our challenges are no longer imperialism or western colonialism. Our challenges are less about fighting against poverty and strive for rapid development.

Today, our challenges are to reform our country’s institutions such as the police, civil service, judiciary, schools, institutions for higher learning and anti-corruption agency are all in worst shape than ever. 52 years after independent, we have lost one of our precious heritage from the British – the integrity of the institutions.

Look at our judiciary. Judges can be fixed. I have had first hand experience to expose VK Lingam tape. After 2 years of Royal Commission Investigation, VK Lingam, Vincent Tan and Tun Ahmad Fairus are still scott free. Look at our schools – we continue to produce unemployable graduates. Our universities continue to drop in global ranking.

Our police continue to fail us in providing security. Crime rate has sky-rocketed and will continue to get worse. Our Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has become a stooge for the corrupt politicians.

What will happen if we continue to let this go on forever? How long can we last if we do nothing?

The Anglo-Irish political philosopher Edmund Burke in his 1770 book “Thoughts on the cause of present discontents” quoted:

“Evil thrives when good men do nothing.”

On this Malaysia Day, it is our duty that all Malaysians have to work together to stop the rot and work together to steer our country back to the right path.

THE GREAT READER’S DIGEST GLOBAL COURTESY TEST

HOW POLITE ARE WE ? Read the full article :

https://tsnra.wordpress.com/articles/courtesy-the-great-reader’s-digest-global-courtesy-testh/

The RD ranked the world in 2006/2007. Out of 36 cities, KL, Malaysia was placed 34 !

How interesting and what a shame!  Do Malaysians  practise everyday courtesies ?

Are our Malaysian leaders showing good egs of courtesy?  Kepimpinan melalui Teladan?

Do our leaders show courtesy in their words and actions among themselves and between them and the opposition?  Shouldn’t they put their differences aside, serve the people and work together towards a better 1Malaysia?  Do we observe their courtesy in Parliament and in the media?

Do Ministers, MPs, State Exco members and ADUNs direct their Personal Assistants /Secretaries to respond to our emails and correspondence promptly? We don’t expect them to attend to us directly, do we? They have staff to do this for them but shouldn’t they give directives to their staff to liaise efficiently and effectively with the people ?

When we call to make an enquiry or request for assistance, are we assured  that we are being attended to asap and that follow-up actions are being taken as best as possible?

Are we left on hold by answering machine instead of being attended to by telephone operators who are being paid to serve but are too busy chatting with friends?

When they do finally attend to our calls, is it with a ‘smiling voice’ ?

Do those in the government service extend the same courtesy to both prince and pauper?

How about us? How courteous are we?

Do we say TQ and mean it when someone helps us?

Do we return a call when someone calls and leaves a message ?

Do we reply a short SMS to people who message us?

Do we reply an email which requires a reply promptly?

Do we send in our apologies when we cannot attend a meeting?

Are we punctual and not keep others waiting for us as if our time is more important than theirs?

Do we greet our neighbours with a friendly wave or ‘Hello’ when we see them?

How about our courtesy on the road ?

Are Malaysians courteous drivers ?

Do they observe traffic rules and respect other road users or do they believe in being ‘ rude unto others as they are unto you ‘ ?

Do we give way to others who have the right of the way instead of bulldozing through?

How about us respecting the rights of others and caring for our environment?

Do we smoke and couldn’t care less about others who would object and suffer from passive smoking?

Do we talk loudly on our handphones as though we are Robinson Crusoe all alone on our own island?

Do we litter and spit wherever we please ?  After all, we are not in our own houses

Do our children play the piano without using the damper pedal or turn up the TV at high volume when our neighbours need to rest at night?

Do we respect and care for public property, and teach our children to do likewise?

Do we openly burn our rubbish, polluting the air with foul smoke, and worsening the health of those with lung problems like asthma?

This list can go on and on. So what are your honest answers? If most of your answers are “No’s” , then the Readers’ Digest survey results need to be heeded.

Dear YB  Mr Phee Boon Poh,


The above TSNCC PDF  file is our working paper for you to download and review.

We value your comments and subsequent actions to be taken – visit to our Taman and the abandoned Medan Selera followed by a dialogue with us, maybe together with the MPPP President YDP Sr Tan Cheng Chui.

We need to work very closely with you ( Health, Welfare & Caring Society), YAB Dr Mansor Othman  Society Relationship ), our MP YB Dato’ Seri Zahrain Hashim, YB Ms. Lydia Ong ( Youth, Sports, Women, Family & Community), our ADUN YB Mr. Sim Tze Tzin, YBhg Dato’ Zainal Rahim ( Pg State Sec ), Tn Hj Jusni b Hj Ismail ( D.O. Barat Daya), YDP Sr Tan Cheng Chui ( Medan Selera ) and OCPD Barat Daya. If this Community Centre is approved by the Pg State Government for our whole district, it will be a place of blessing for the entire community, especially the old, poor and needy.

Please liaise with us for any further information and actions  deemed necessary.

 

Best regards and God bless you.

 

Yours sincerely,

Hwang Hong Shi
