I visited the family of the kindergarten teacher who passed away in Bandar Sunway as a result of snatch theft. Click here to read more about the incident.
The late Mdm Leong worked in Subang Jaya, lived in Taman Sri Muda and was walking on the pedestrian bridge connecting DUN Subang Jaya to DUN Seri Setia when she was attacked. All 3 state assemblymen : myself, Nik Nazmi (Seri Setia) and Shuhaimi Shafiei visited the family of the late Mdm Leong and gave financial assistance to the family on behalf of the Selangor State Government. Our condolences to her husband and daughters.
We urge the police and Home Ministry to beef up security in urban townships. Snatch thefts must be given heavy penalty and not be treated as petty crime. There are simply too many victims of snatch theft and the thieves must know that they can no longer get away with such senseless acts.

Some parties were spreading lies about our Malaysia Day gotong-royong in SS13. Media asked me if our intention was to remove banners bearing the 1Malaysia logo as a rebellious sign against the Federal Government. My reply : I have no time to play childish political games with Barisan Nasional. (You can read more about our gotong-royong in the posting below). MPSJ will continue to remove any illegal advertisements (without MPSJ stickers), regardless of the identity of the person/agency who put them up.
Article from Sinar Harian :
SUBANG JAYA - "Tidak benar, saya tidak tahu siapa yang membuat khabar angin mengatakan program gotong-royong pagi ini (semalam) untuk menurunkan iklan dan bunting tertera logo 1 Malaysia," demikian tegas Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Subang Jaya, Hannah Yeoh Tseow Suan ketika ditanya mengenai dakwaan beliau akan berbuat demikian dalam program dianjur pagi semalam.
Beliau yang menyangkal perkara itu turut menafikan pernah membawa turun iklan peminjam wang haram yang dibuat dalam bentuk bunting itu yang mempunyai logo 1 Malaysia meskipun pernah terjumpa iklan berkenaan.
"Pagi ini saya hanya mengadakan program gotong-royong disertai 60 belia dari sekitar Lembah Klang untuk membersihkan kawasan pangsapuri kos rendah di SS 13.
"Niat kami hanya membersihkan kawasan ini dan bukannya untuk menurunkan iklan dan sebagainya," katanya.
Beliau berkata, program gotong-royong turut disertai kakitangan Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) dan pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) itu akan membawa turun iklan haram hanya sekiranya terserempak.
"Tetapi kalau dakwaan mengatakan kami menurunkan iklan atau bunting yang ada tertera logo 1 Malaysia itu memang tidak benar.
"Anda (wartawan) boleh saksikan sendiri apa yang kami lakukan di sini," katanya kepada Sinar Harian.
Hannah berkata, dia hanya mengeluarkan pendapat bahawa logo 1 Malaysia dikomersialkan pihak tertentu untuk perniagaan mereka.
"Saya pernah terlihat iklan peminjam wang haram tertera logo 1 Malaysia. Meskipun begitu saya tidak menurunkannya kerana ia digantung agak tinggi di tiang lampu. Tetapi meskipun ada diletakkan logo 1 Malaysia di sana...saya ingin bertanya adakah ia mempunyai permit dan kebenaran pihak Majlis.
"Lebih mengecewakan dakwaan dibuat sedangkan bunting (mempunyai logo 1 Malaysia) di kawasan pangsapuri itu," katanya lagi yang mendakwa iklan peminjam wang tertera logo itu dijumpai di kawasan kedai di USJ2.
Sementara itu Ahli Majlis MPSJ, Dr Loi Kheng Min yang turut menyertai aktiviti gotong-royong itu berkata, pihaknya hanya menyerahkan kepada Jabatan Perlesenan sekiranya mahu membawa turun iklan atau bunting mahupun kain rentang besar yang tidak mempunyai permit.
"Kami tidak menurunkan iklan 1 Malaysia kerana di situ ada gambar bendera...menurunkan bunting atau kain rentang itu bagi saya sama seperti menurunkan bendera. Fokus kita pada program pagi ini hanya untuk pembersihan bukan untuk menurunkan iklan," katanya.

On Malaysia Day, a group of 60 youth gathered at SS13 flats to express their love for this nation. The message : to take ownership of this land and learn to care for their neighbours. 20 local residents from the flats participated in the venture with the assistance from Alam Flora and MPSJ enforcement officers. It was not so much about the act of cleaning itself, it was about NOT being indifferent to others in the community. It is not always an easy task to mobilise youth on a public holiday at 7am! I'm so glad these youth took time to do something positive for others. No fancy slogan on Malaysia Day : they just expressed it through their actions that morning!
Below is the article from the Star:
ABOUT 60 youths showed their love for the country by volunteering for a gotong-royong to clean up the SS13 flats compound in Subang Jaya on Malaysia Day.
Phang Jun Yee, 14, said she did not mind waking up so early during the school holidays, as the initiative was for a good cause."
It feels great to help clean up the area and possibly save lives in view of the health hazards like dengue fever," said Cherish Choo, 15, whose father also helped out at the gotong-royong.
Although they go to different schools in Petaling Jaya, Jun Yee and Cherish knew each other through church and the Change Your World movement, which organised the event.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said the initiative was a statement from the youths to declare their love for the nation and to do something for the community.
"It also encourages them to take responsibility for the things that are happening in their country," she said, adding that a simultaneous clean-up was held in the Bukit Gasing constituency.
"The youths, who come from all over the Klang Valley, worked with the residents to clean the drains and collect rubbish in the compound.
"The project was also supported by Alam Flora and the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), which provided equipment and workers to trim trees and cut the grass."
In addition to learning about the challenges of living in flats and the Joint Management Body (JMB) concept, Yeoh said the youths would also be exposed to the Rakan Cop programme conducted by the police and anti-human trafficking efforts by Tenaganita after the cleanup.
MPSJ councillor and JKP Zone 1 chairman Dr Loi Kheng Min said the gotong-royong was an opportunity for the youths to interact with the local community.
Change Your World coordinator Cathryn Lim said the local movement encouraged youths to learn and love the cities they lived in.
"Our aim is to create awareness among youths in schools and tertiary institutions about social ills, with a focus on three key issues.
"We also work with the local community to tweak the activities according to local needs," she said.
