BBRAeNEWS No.374 - Benefit of the doubt

Dear residents,

For the benefit of all residents, we would like to announce the appointment of a new township manager for the developer, Mr Ng. We hope that Mr Ng has the best interest of the Botanic community at heart and we wish him all the best in his duties.

Anyway, prior to a meeting by residents with TMO, some questions were posed to BBRA on the maintenance of the Botanic pond, rubbish being thrown at the lake as well as at the recycling bins (for charity) and the uncut grass along Persiaran Botanic.

These questions were later forwarded and discussed with TMO, to which Mr Ng replied in e-mail as per below dated December 14, 2010:

1) We are aware of the overgrown grass along pesiaran botanik and we intend to cut the grass there. We intend to erect road signages along the same road.  We will do the maintenance and clean up for handing over to the authority.

2) We had informed the relevant authorities to clear the rubbish and fill  the hole. We will monitor the situation. However, we need the residence assistance not to throw rubbish into the hole. (In reference to throwing of rubbish into a hole at Jenaris)

3) We will call the proprietor of the recycling bins to clear the recycle materials. Authorities will remove the rubbish. Again, we ask the residences for assistance not to throw the rubbish and hope that the recycling bins proprietor or the authorities to remove them. The recycling bins are for charitable cause and having them around is beneficial to all of us.

As you are aware. maintaining the township is a diificult but it can be achieved with the assistance from the residences. We too want this township to be a testimony for others. Please rest assured that we will do everything within our capabilities to make your stay a pleasant and enjoyable one.

For the benefit of all the residents, we let you decide when and if ever, the above mentioned will be acted upon. Especially for the uncut grass along Persiaran Botanic and other areas of our beautiful garden.

BBRAeNEWS No.369 - A good Sunday

Dear Residents,

We would like to share a contribution by our fellow Bandar Botanic resident Andrew Sum, on his experience and reflection of a "Good Sunday" at the Central Park.

I have not been to the Bandar Botanical Lake for a walk for a long time due to osteoarthritis. However this Sunday, 31st Oct, I went for a slow walk in the late afternoon and was happy to note that the Lake region especially towards Kiara/Didara/Bongor region is now gaining popularity amongst visitors from other areas of Klang and Selangor, as I have notice not less than 3 Muslim weddings couples taking photographs there by the lake side. One was with the Royal Malaysian Navy I think, judging by the white uniform the bridegroom wore.

Add to this, there is a bonus of one large group of visitors & boys from the Indian Christian DESTINY STARTING POINT, a juvenile home for boys, having their group photographs taken there. I joined in to the group to have a picture taken and they happily obliged.

A chat with the Home Coordinator and was told that theirs is a juvenile home for boys and their objective are ‘Rescue, Restore, Reconcile and Reform’. Their address is located at No.21 Lebun Peria Taman Radzi, 41200 Klang, Selangor. Anyone interested can contact them at Tel:03-337424768. E-mail: Website: Their Home coordinator is Ms Julian Amaarjeet (016-2747598).

Surprisingly, most of the boys speak good English wishing me immediately “Uncle Welcome’.

BBRAeNEWS No.368 - Once again, the same culprits

Dear Residents,

It saddens us to read about news regarding open burning within our area. Yet, each time it happens, nothing is done by the local authorities to curb the problem.

In case you're wondering what caused the thick smoke last week in Bandar Botanic and its surrounding vicinity, please read the news report below which is a copy of today's Star.


Thick smoke blankets Klang skies due to slash-and-burn method

Story and photos by EDWARD R. HENRY

THICK smoke from a fire near Bandar Puteri, off the Kesas highway, blanketed the housing area and parts of Kota Kemuning and Bandar Botanic last week.

The fire was started by a farmer who had felled and burned the trees to plant vegetables.
Firemen had to dig trenches to prevent the fire spreading.

Several hectares of forest were destroyed in the fire and the peat soil is still smouldering and workers were busy clearing the land with an excavator.

Bandar Puteri resident S. Chandra, 30, said many people experienced breathing difficulty, chest pain and shortness of breath.

Still smoking: Chandra looking at the extent of devastation caused by the fire.
“Even until now residents are still going to clinics a week after the fire,” he said.

“People did not know whether to remain indoors or go out of their houses. The Department of Environ-ment (DoE) did not nab the culprits who caused the fire,” said the electrical engineer.

“The Department of Environment (DoE) should monitor the land to deter farmers from burning the vegetation again.

He said despite sending letters to the DoE, the Public Complaints Bureau (PCB), Klang Municipal Council (MPK) and the State Health Department nothing had been done to resolve the problem.

Chandra only received a letter from PCB officer Nur Ikram Aziz dated Oct 18, requesting more information on the specific location of the open burning but nothing was done to solve the problem.

Total wipeout: Shrubs and branches are all that is left after the burning.
Raja Ahmad Raja Duraa said DoE and MPK’s environment unit must cordon off the area to prevent people from going in.

“Our children are not well due to the smoke and we have incurred medical bills for this bad state of the environment,” the accountant said.

Mechanic Cheng Ho, 45, said this was not the first time thick smoke that enveloped the area.

“We have been having this problem for sometime and blamed the lack of enforcement for the open burning.

A doctor with a private clinic said he had seen an increase in the number of patients from Bandar Puteri and Bandar Botanic with respiratory problems.

DoE director Che Asmah Ibrahim said the owner had rented out the land to a farmer who resorted to the slash-and-burn method.

“Our initial investigation revealed that the farmer had planned to grow pineapples,” she said.

Che Asmah added that the culprit had been identified and action would be taken once the investigation papers were completed.

“There are still pockets of smouldering peat earth,” she said.

BBRAeNEWS No.366 - Getting to the root of the problem

Dear Residents,

It was a fruitful meeting by BBRA committee members En Nor Halim, Jacob Mathews, Jayakumar, Jacob Thomas, Lim Chin Beng, and BBRA member Andrew Sum from Jenaris, with Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) this morning at the IWK office in Southern Park, Klang.

Mr Gan, IWK Area Manager of Bandar Botanic and his assistant Dr Lee represented IWK.

The main concerns raised by Bandar Botanic residents were the outstanding flooding issue regarding the toilet sewerage, in particular the flooding of the ground floor bathroom toilet bowl after a storm. This results to a massive inconvenience for residents who are forced to use only the upstairs bathrooms.

BBRA is glad to note that IWK has acknowledge that there is a problem and have shown the plans that were submitted to them by the developer. They are also willing to work with BBRA to find a solution to this long outstanding problem.

We thank Mr Gan and his assistant Dr Lee for sharing their time with us to find a solution to this problem. While we wait for the follow-up session, we hope that all Bandar Botanic residents can remain patient until an amicable solution is found.

In the time being, we will keep you notified on the developments to come.

BBRAeNEWS No.361 - Sentosa FC champions of 9-A-Side Tournament 2010

Dear Residents,

If you've missed the entire day of 9-A-Side football yesterday, you can be assured that there were thrills, spills, and lots of everything else in between.

After a long day of football, the final proved to be a level affair between Sentosa FC and Sudaroli FC. The two teams were tied in normal play and after two rounds of penalties, the scores were still tied. But after the toss of a coin, Sentosa FC emerged as the first champions of the 2010 9-A-Side Tournament.

On behalf of BBRA, we congratulate the newly crown champions and the runner-up. Completing the honours list were Majestic FC in third place, and Bukit Tinggi 1 in fourth place.

Popular businessman and philanthropist, YB OMS Thiagarajan, presented the trophies to all the winning parties.

As a token of appreciation to the guest of honour, the mentally and physically-challenged children from the Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang Selangor were given a donation by the organiser.

The one day event which was organised by Botanic Soccer Club and BBRA, in association with Majlis Perbandaran Klang and Cassia Gemilang Sdn Bhd, received participation of over 30 teams from around the Klang district.

In a special note of thanks for making the event a success, BBRA would like to thank the St Johns Ambulance, RELA, Balai Polis Botanic and Bukit Tinggi, the referees from the Football Association, children from the Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang, and residents of Bandar Botanic who have made the event a cheerful one.

Even RELA was helping out with traffic management and crowd control.

To all who could not attend the event, we leave you here with snapshots of the days event.

With representatives from the Klang Municipal Council (MPK) and Bandar Botanic township management expected to be present, residents can voice their views pertaining to the maintenance of the central park and its lake, the issue of building a sound barrier along parts of the Kesas Highway or any other matters.

Its residents association, BBRA, will also be bringing up several issues at the event.

BBRA president Nor Halim Ahmad said they would set up a feedback counter there for residents to express their views while having a membership drive.
Pleasant scenery: The houses at Bandar Botanic are complemented by an abundance of greenery

Halim hoped that residents would turn up in full force as the carnival would bridge them with representatives from the council, developer and BBRA.

“Of late, security has also become a concern since cases of house break-in and car thefts were reported in the Bunggor and Angsana precincts respectively,’’ he said.

The carnival is slated for 8am to 2pm at the Botanic Walk West (outside the multipurpose hall) in the park.
For RedFM fans, do not miss the chance to have a date with your favourite deejays at the carnival.

Performances and interactive games have been lined up while the charismatic JD and Nisha will be there to further sizzle up the atmosphere.

The popular deejays will be giving live updates of the event from 11am, before the programme moves on to the day’s highlight at noon — a 60-minute dialogue involving residents and representatives of the invited agencies — in which JD will update listeners on the issues discussed.

The dialogue will be coordinated by RedFM’s moderator Norina Yahya.

The carnival will be the second organised by The Star after the first in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya.

Themed You’ve Got The Power, the People’s Voice campaign was launched in April as a platform for residents to engage directly with their local authorities and relevant agencies.

Lush greenery: The houses at Bandar Botanic are complemented by beautiful landscaping.
Various activities have been planned for the carnival which will be held from 9am to 2pm.

Besides a day of fun, residents can look forward to raising issues that affect them with representatives from the local authorities who will be present at the event.

Special guest will be Klang Municipal Council president Mislan Tugiu.

When informed that the second People’s Voice carnival would be held in Klang, Mislan said he welcomed the move.

He said this was a recognition to the people of Klang, especially those in Bandar Botanic.

“Bandar Botanic is very unique and has a lot of greenery and beautiful landscaping.
“I am happy that this neighbourhood has been picked as the carnival’s first venue in Klang,’’ he said.

Representatives from developer Gamuda Land Bhd are also expected to attend the carnival.

Under the campaign, carnivals will be held twice a month at selected residential areas in the Klang Valley over the next 12 months.

RedFM will be broadcasting live from the venue and The People’s Voice cruisers will also be making rounds in the area.
