close down all karaoke and places selling beer and liquor immediately.

top chinese executives from all companies under the pretext of entertaining customer after work
are wasting their time and increasing the companys expenses.

on top of this nonsense hanky panky
are aplenty.

the govt should ban all this nonsense immediately and urged all
executives and above to go back to their respective families after work.

i am chinese and i support PAS 100%
on banning of alcohol.

alcohol is nothing but trouble.

marriages are crumbling becoz of this nonsense

i am very sure all the chinese housewives and whatever will
support 100% PAS good intention.

not only alcohol , 4d betting outlets should also be closed , gambling is another evil ........

as for genting casino , only allow tourist to go gamble , local who want to go in gamble must pay entrance fee....haven't gamble already lose out on entrance fee....haha hahahahaha

P130 voter said...

I want to comment on the gambling and drinking issue.

Total ban is not a solution. Think USA Prohibition era circa 1920 and you will know what I mean.

A tighter control on these vices is better than total ban.

I am in favour of reducing these vices, but also pragmatic enough to know that total ban can bring its own sets of problems.

Stricter enforcement on underage drinking, DUI (Drinking Under Influence), limit the number of draws per annum for the number operators are more achievable steps.

I don't know if you realised it or not that the stretch of road near the railway bridge (Jalan Rahang) just after the mosque had recently been re-tarred with lines drawn. This road had potholes for months and nobody care a damn.

Suddenly, when our MB had to perform some ground breaking ceremony in the area, either the JKR or the MPS found the funds to re-tar this road.

When it was under BN Rahang didn't see much development at all, now it's under DAP can I presume the govt is not going to care much either? BTW forget about the new fly over, it's a Federal project and has nothing to do with the state govt right!

Just ask the MB whether he realised the newly tarred road when he was driven to his ground breaking ceremony. Bet he thinks the road had always been well maintained by the authorities.

gaming tax yes gd revenue for govt , but gambling is a devil.....

Lee Wee Tak said...

The MB, being a corporate man, should look at re-structuring the NS economy, i.e. create job opportunities which pays more.

Currently, I believe a big slice of the economy is generated from manufacturing sector in Senawang, Sungai Gadut, Senawang etc. However, jobs here are mostly lower paid and taken up by foreigners. It is also mainly labour intensive and volume driven

NS should look at possibility of increasing service base industry. Yes, we have a bit of education industry in Nilai and that can be a starting base.

It is odd that when we have KLIA near NS, the rest of the industry fail to take off.

Wee Tak ,

they fail to have proper planning.

watever they plan , they had planned to fail........

I stay in Mantin area. Robbery and house-breaking cases often occurs here without day or night. People here not only loss valuable item, because now such as jackfruit and bananas had become thief's new target. Although the landlord or employee be in the estate area,thief or intruder still trespass into and threaten the landlord or employee so that do not report to the police.
I hope PDRM of Negeri Sembilan or Mantin could take attention to the robbery and housebreaking cases which often occurs in Mantin area. So that people do not live under fear.

Thank you.

y our neighbour across the causeway is so successful ? coz of planning , gd & long term planning is the key to success......humble & eager to learn best of the best from the whole world.....

Lee Wee Tak said...

Yep, proper planning is lacking, so too proper implementation.

Back in the 1970's Port Dickson is renowned beach holiday destination and now, Marina Reosrt can be called a failed investors' destination.

The State should look at increasing the contribution of service base industry - we got a medical university in Rasah, why not increase the capacity of student in take? Tourism, have a hook up with Klang-Spang-Melaka via the Kesas Highway & NS Highway for sigh seeing and food tour.

Punca Emas is an eye sore. With a swimming pool on the 6th floor, it is unique in Seremban, can the State with JFV partners strike a deal with the owners to redevelop the complex?

With KLIA at its proximity, why not get some international financial services or Islamic food processing work get going?

Lee Wee Tak said...

the state look into getting the agriculture sector to improve itself. Badawi liked to develope agriculture but NS seemed not to have capitalised on that (come to think of it, no other state does)

perhaps we can look into production of high value vegetables and fruits, pultry and various livestock farming for export purposes. Bukit Pelanduk used to bring in huge foreign exchange frm Singapore and we can consider reviving its former glory.

wee tak ,

if this is materialize , it spurs more economic activities internally , however the toll rates should be abolished or reduced to spur ppl to travel within the nation.....

With regards to the gambling, I used to joke that putting an international casino in Port Dickson and you can put Genting out of business - beach & less journey for Singaporeans to drive and less harm to their cars....but the people down south beaten us to it with that Sentosa site.

the spill over effect is great, look at Macau with of course the related social costs but ask any Macau people if they want to give that up? Proper management is the key for them as I do not see a total collapse of society in las Vegas and Macau

opening up of airspace , allowing low cost carriers to fly direct from singapore to malaysian cities , putting pressure on two main airlines "MAS" "SIA" to reduce their rates or throw in more freebies to retain loyal customers. however when i go online to compare "Jetstar" , "air asia" for the s'pore to penang sector , very disappointed , price is still at fly high not much to cheer about leh......

casino , magnum , damacai , berjaya toto , 88 sabah , sandakan turf club , horse racing turf clubs in selangor , kl , ipoh etc

why so many such gaming outlets nationwide?

how much did locals dump their hard earned money to each of these gaming companies ?

Clubs tat have jackpots !!!!
how much did the club earn from our dear malaysian gamblers ???

How much taxes had our govt collected for these gaming establishments ???????

curious to know , can YB kindly provide such stats to members of the malaysian public !!!

thank you

Anonymous said...

although there are so many such gaming establishments nationwide ,
how come illegal bookmakers is still very rampant in our country ?

is it because illegals offer better odds than the legal one ?

haizz....really strange ,
placing bets with legal establishments guarantee u yr winnings. (provided punters win)

placing bets with illegals , there is a chance they might run away if the illegal bookmakers lose heavily to punters.

"....allowing low cost carriers to fly direct from singapore to malaysian cities , putting pressure on two main airlines "MAS" "SIA" to reduce their rates..."

- difficult as this needs bilateral national government agreement

- another choice is to have bullet train between KL & Singapore plus a good feeder system between KL & Singapore

Lee Wee Tak said...

sorry, typo

"another choice is to have bullet train between KL & Singapore plus a good feeder system between KL & Seremban"

We have a strong and good (where i believe so, if not C&C wont hired him)business man as our MB, so would like to know what his plan or solution to overcome the recession and what business / investment does he bring to NS?

SCHK said...

Ask him to explain why he spent so much of money for that advertisement, why dont use that money for some poor family?

如果以每一餐5银两算,可以提供30位学童300天的午餐。

如果给每个贫穷家庭500银两的补助,可以帮助90个家庭。

如果以200银两一套算,用来买学府的桌椅,大约可以买到230套。

BCM, our state assembly reps or MPs are not suppose to organise gotong royong and clean up the place.

Ensuring proper cleanliness comes from 1) member of public themselves 2) town council members (whom the BN administration loath to hand their election back to the public)

The real duty of MPs and ADUNs are at policy formulation and monitoring level but the basic cleanliness and delivery system have been purposely wrecked to divert the energy and focus of MPs and ADUNs.

Compare M'sia's PSD award process vs Singapore's Asean Scholarship and can you see the different level of thought put behind the respective schemes?

By the way, just because there is no gotong royong, you are running back to BN who left the country dirty and messy in the first place. You are not solving the problem, you are regressing at best.

You and PKR team spoke passionately abt granting scholarships based on merit, since that talk what was the outcome? Let your fire not die but keep fighting for this.

Award should be based on excellent pre university results (whether STPM, A levels, IB etc), otherwise other universities would be awarding our talented malaysians and Malaysia will loose these talents to overseas countries!

Is that what we want?
