Having attended a couple of functions in the Taman Sri Nibong field organised by the MPPP and the State Government in 1999, it dawned on me that the residents of this picturesque Taman could form a body to organize activities for their benefits including security and safety. I put forward this idea to a few residents present at the functions and they readily accepted the concept in the presence of our State Assembleman, YB Mr. Lim Chien Aun. Thus 0n 23rd May, 1999, a preliminary meeting was held in my house to discuss the formation of our Association. This led to more than six meetings beginning Friday, 4th June,1999 with the following residents attending: Messrs. Chuan Hooi Khoon, Goh Say Leong, Tan Kean Hock, Wang Teik Soon and self as the Chairman. Subsequent meetings included Messrs. Amerk Singh and Wong Poh Chan.
With relentless efforts and determination including two visits to consule the Registrar of Societies in Prai, the Association was finally registered on 23rd May,2000 – a year after the idea was conceived.
Since the Inaugural Meeting of the Association was held 0n Sunday, 24th September, 2000, the Association has not functioned actively and effectively owing to unforeen circumstances.
Firstly, the President resigned after a few months in office owing to work commitment outstation. Inevitably, he had to relinquish his position. Not soon after, the Hon. Secretary also resigned owing to pressure of work. In October, 2002, the Acting President (Vice President) resigned as he moved out of the Taman to live in another State. I was appointed Acting President on 9th February, 2003.
It was then thought opportune to re-organise our Committee and to this end, an Extra General Meeting was held on Sunday, 27th April, 2003 at the Association hall at 5.00 p.m. The residents gave their full support for a new Committee to be elected. The Committee complied.
