Resident collapsed during argument in 3D

Just three days before Chinese New Year something tragic happened in USJ 11/3 of which many did not know.

The wife of a resident in 3D engaged a Bangladeshi gardener to cut the lawn. After he completed the task he asked for his payment. Not having agreed to a rate beforehand the payment made by the wife was deemed too little. The Bangladeshi then asked for more money to which an argument ensued between the resident's wide and the Bangladeshi.

The argument was soon joined in by the resident himself, a man in his 50s. He chided the Bangladeshi for being so demanding and really gave him a piece of his mind. All this happened at about 1 p.m. in front of his house under the scorching sun. This went on until the Bangladeshi broke down in tears.

Suddenly while all this was happening, the man collapsed onto the ground. He had suffered a heart attack and subsequently an ambulance was called. The amubalance arrived several minutes later to sent the victim to the hospital but he died on the way to the hospital. The Bangladeshi ran away in shock.

So you see the moral of the story is, it is sometimes not worth getting all worked up over a small change. Better to move on and let it go.

Thought we share this with you.

BLOOD DONOR APPEAL for 7 year old Matthew

Dear Residents,

While we are still in the festivities of the Chinese New Year celebration, we also need to spare our thoughts for people who are not so lucky due to one reason or another beyond their control.

I read this email in circulation in SJ Alert and I was touched by this story and appeal. It is about the unfortunate medical condition that is threatening a young life. I also emphatize with the parents and I can only imagine the pain and agony that they are going through right now.

So, please do your part if you can to help this young child. Please do read the appeal below.

Thanks & Best Regards,

Subject: Matthew Lee: Urgent request for blood platelet donations

Dear all,

This is a personal appeal for a dear friend's 7 year old son...

Just last Wednesday, 17 Feb 2010, Matthew Lee, a 7 year old boy known for his jovial and mischievous nature was diagnosed with leukemia and is currently in SJMC. His platelet count is extremely low and as such, he is in urgent need of platelet donors. As a friend, I am appealing for your help. Here is an excerpt from Mattthew's father, Mr. Lee Peng Siang.

"Matt needs platelet and blood donors. All types of blood groups, male or female are accepted. The SJMC blood bank is located on the 5th floor of the North Tower. It is open office hours, Monday to Friday. When donating please inform that is it for Matthew Lee room 553. Only people who are not on any kind of long/short term medication accepted. . Platelet donation is critical this week as Matt needs the minimum of 1 bag per day. Those who cannot donate platelets can donate blood. Duration is about 1 hour for blood and 2 hours for platelets. Please also caution against too many visitors due to Matt's low immunity level at this time. Thanks"

Potential blood platelet donors will have to be screened for eligibility because not everyone is. As platelets have a short lifespan, the blood bank cannot simply stock up on platelets and dispense it at their leisure; it has to be relatively fresh. Due to this, it would be good if we had a large pool of eligible donors to call upon. For those not eligible to donate platelets, a blood donation is just as welcomed.

If you are willing to donate, please send an email, which you can also CC to Pauline. This will facilitate us in the compilation of a donors list.

SAMUEL WONG: centripetal.deficiency@yahoo.com
PAULINE LEE: pspaulinelee@gmail.com

If you're willing to help out, I encourage you to get yourself screened as soon as possible. As Peng Siang mentioned, this week will be critical for Matthew. With some coordination, we can ensure that he will always have someone ready to donate for him.

Matthew's Mother: Mrs. Pauline Lee
Matthew's Father: Mr. Lee Peng Siang
Matthew's Blood Type: O

If you know of anyone who is willing to help, please pass on this email.

Thank you all,

Liu: Security services guidelines almost complete

From The Star, Metro
Tuesday February 23, 2010


THE requirement for 85% of residents to approve the conversion of a housing estate into a gated and guarded community will remain under the standard guidelines that are expected to be released soon by the Selangor government.

Under the guidelines, which are in the final stage of preparation, residents or residents associations are not allowed to engage guards or fence up an area without the approval of the local authority.

State local government committee chairman Ronnie Liu said the local authorities had an important role to play in deciding on guarding and gating a particular area.

Clearing the air: Liu said the guidelines would provide a step-by-step guide to setting up a gated and guarded community

He said the residents must first approach their local authorities before pursuing their intentions.

“The local authorities will guide the residents on how to go about guarding and gating the area.

“This procedure must be strictly followed as the move to turn an existing housing estate into a guarded or gated one is a tedious process,” he said, adding that it involved a lot issues including the practicality of doing so.

Liu said fencing up a particular area, would affect the movement and activities of residents as it involved closing access routes that had existed from the beginning.

He said some people would feel that their freedom had been restricted by the closure of certain roads in the area.

“Others may feel that there is no need to have guards in the area or fences around their houses and there will be a group of people who will want the service of the security guards but are unwilling to pay for it.” he said.

Liu also said when the area was fenced up, the residents must understand that the local authorities would not provide maintenance services, including garbage collection.

He said the services would be offered by private contractors hired by the residents themselves.

“These are the consequences faced by residents who live in gated communities but it is not an issue for them because they knew that they had to pay for their own services when they bought their homes in the gated communities.

“However, those residing in normal areas are not used to these conditions and will not feel comfortable if they were suddenly asked to pay for the services that they have been enjoying for free in the past.

“The guidelines will cover such details to ensure that most of the residents agree before an area is made into a guarded or gated one,” he said.

Currently, Liu said there were no clear guidelines for residents to convert an area into a guarded or gated community and this had led to a lot of confusion.

“The guidelines will provide a step-by-step guide so that the residents will know what they need to do in order for them to turn their areas into a gated community,” he said.

Thank you Councillor!

Mr. Rajiv Risyakaran
MPSJ Councillor

Dear Rajiv,

Thank you for the futsal court constructed under JKP budget. It has certainly helps to achieve one of our core interests in developing youth healthy lifestyle.

The court now served dual purpose as a center of integration among youth in our precinct expressing themselves in the skill they possessed and for the senior citizen to perform their daily exercise in the early hours.

Appreciation from Persatuan Penduduk USJ11/3, Subang Jaya.

January 2010 Newsletter

Dear Residents,

To all our Hindu Friends, we hope you have enjoyed the Thaipusam Festival!

Anyway, welcome to the first edition of our newsletter which keeps you inform of the activities in our neighborhood. This year, your committee is working towards improving our surrounding areas and also to step up gradually our security which has been implemented in our ‘kampung’.

With the recent Ponggal and Thaipusam festival celebrated by our Hindu community, the next major festival around the corner is the Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, we will bid farewell to the year of the Ox and welcome the year of the Tiger.

In anticipation to that, the Committee would like to wish all our Chinese friends and family members “Gong Xi Fa Cai”!

Tree Planting

MPSJ has allocated 50 trees to us. We plan to plant these trees along the road with fence facing Public Bank. We need some volunteers for this so if you are free kindly assemble at Gate 4 at 9 a.m. on Sunday 31 January 2010.

Our long term goal is to plant a row of trees along that stretch to beautify the area but we will only be able to do so as and when MPSJ allocate additional trees to us in the future.

Street Lighting

As part of our on-going improvement programs, we will be embarking on lighting up all the streets. We have already started to identify all the TNB poles which are without a light installed. This is done for us to estimate the cost of installation and operation.

Once this is completed, we will be making a formal application to TNB to have almost all the poles installed with lights and we anticipate this will take about 2 months to complete. We believe with additional lights, it will help us step up our security measures as the additional lighting will keep intruders and potential criminals out of our area as they can easily be spotted.

We will however have to make a few exceptions as there are those who can afford to but do not pay their dues. In these instances, the poles will be left as is.

Car Stickers

Please be reminded that the car stickers will be issued to all who live in our area. Please ensure you submit your forms and for those who have the old stickers, kindly return it by attaching it with your application forms. Non paying residents will be issued stickers as well.

One the stickers are distributed, we will gradually enforce more stringent checks in the future and this will be done in stages and will cover all vehicles coming into our area. Please ensure you get your stickers. Closing date is Jan 31, 2010.

Rukun Tetangga

Recently, some of our Committee members attended the National Key Result Area (NKRA) Convention in Sunway Convention Centre. There they met with some of the ministers.

They have advised that we apply for the RT as this will give us certain advantage like getting funding to carry out community projects such as having our own RA’s office and meeting area, empowering us to stop and carry out identification and checks for vehicles coming through our check points.

We are now looking into this possibility and if it brings benefit to our community, we will apply for the RT to be deployed in our area working parallel with the gated and guarder scheme.

Thank you.

The Committee
