Potential death hole

CJ Jimmy Leow noticed a potential danger if the water way is not covered to prevent people from falling into it. A potential death hole which requires immediate attention from the related authorities.

A child could easily fall into the hole and drown. Lets not have another tragic death, Penang has been many talented Penangites due to carelessness and she definitely don't need such publicity right now.

So, for all those parents taking their children for a stroll at the seaside near Queensbay Mall, stay away from this potential death hole (it is near the roundabout).

By the way, I have made a complain to PINTAS about this yesterday evening and hope that the state government can look into this soonest. Report No : 1003-5705 dated Mar 17, 2010.

MPPP & JKR, Please clear fallen trees

Some of the trees at the outskirts of Bukit Awana Condo, Jalan Kukus at Paya Terubong, Penang had fallen due to a storm recently. The trees damaged the compound fences and luckily no one was injured due to this incident.

We hope MPPP or JKR can help to remove the fallen trees and at the same repair the fences damaged.

The trees along the road leading to Bukit Awana Condo also need some trimming too. The roots are actually invading the hill side and may cause land fall. Please look into these matters for the safety of the residents there.

Danger and Slow Down signs

Danger signs or slow down signs should be indicated at less 500 ~ 800 metres away from the road repair area in front of the new Eastin Hotel. The road leading to the Bayan Lepas Industrial Zone has cars speeding at 70km/hr. The repairs have created a bottleneck at that section of the fork road and will cause accident if no visible warning devices are deployed.

I used this section of the road everyday and I know for a fact that there will be accidents if drivers are not properly informed. Act now before it is too late.

Penangites Breathing Ashes

CJ Jimmy Leow asked hikers at Youth Park, Penang what they think about the haze "season" which was set upon them again by the open burning from neighbouring country. It seems to be a yearly affair since the 90's, will we ever see a stop to this irresponsible act from the related parties. Or are we going to continue to choke on ashes year after year..

Where is Sir Francis Light's Grave?

CJ Chan Lilian and Jimmy Leow visited the Protestant Cemetery in Penang to find out where Captain Francis Light, the founder of Penang was laid to rest. The atmosphere in the cemetery was spooky and the place was not properly taken care of. Both citizen journalists requested the state government and related organizations to take up the challenge to beautify this heritage site for visitors and the generations to come. If left alone, it will definitely be another piece of waste land.

Help us preserve the heritage of Penang.

Thumbs Up, MPPP

CJ Jimmy Leow returned to PISA, Penang to follow up on the draining of stagnant water from one of its pond which may be a possible breeding ground for Aedes mosquitoes. On the 31 May 2009, Jimmy has produced a video clip which described the need to immediately drain away the stagnant water to deter dengue.
