When to Build a Mega Tower?

with 6 comments

Another Mega Tower for KL is not an issue of whether it is a good idea but about the Malaysian government prioritizing the citizens’ needs.  After 13 years of prolonged budget deficit and the government running into huge domestic debts coupled with no new economic driver in sight; Malaysians would like the government to focus on urgent priorities that can add income growth for the Rakyat.

By Foong Wai Fong and Pat Lu, co-founders of Pahlawan Volunteers

Emperor Qin Shi Huang started building his mausoleum at the age of 18, that project continued for several decades. While some observer labeled that as one of the mega-ego project of all times, we tend to think that this could have started as an “economic stimulus” project.  The Qin Mausoleum eventually turned out to be perhaps the most mega project of all times — it covered an area of 50 km, it is an underground city complete with the emperors’ terracotta army and all the services and trappings of the royal household.

At that time, building the mausoleum seems like the most unproductive investment of resources. We suspect that there must be many silenced opposition as no one dared to defy the all mighty first emperor of China.  Today, 2500 years forth, Emperor Qin’s legacy had become one of the largest world heritage sites of all times. The city of Xian is benefiting from this heritage as a source of present day wealth creation. Xian and the Shanxi Province has the second highest tourists arrival in China; reaching some 50-60 million every year.

Nearer to our times, The Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum in Spain, The Xintindi Restoration Project in Shanghai, the Restoration of the Hangang River in Seoul, Taipei 101 Tower or Dubai Burj Khalifa Tower are all testimonies of how an Avant-garde building structure could inspire and rejuvenate a city; generating pride and hope for the local citizenry and put that particular location or city on the world map.

Many of these wonderful buildings or urban renewal/renaissance projects have all proven their worth in stimulating confidence through a city’s make over; and many of them have become symbols of a particular historical era for a particular cultural group.

There are of course many less successful projects which the promoters did not find a sustainable business model to make good the investment, and the structures fail  to generate the “Bilbao Effect” of generating high GDP multiples for the city; resulting in good returns to the overall economy.

Menara Warisan

Building an ethnic style contemporary structure to symbolize the modernity of Malaysia or its people is a fantastic idea. If we can put our mind and creativity to create a ground-breaking, awe-inspiring structure; plus good functional design and integration of the content in terms of the artifacts would certainly add another dimension to the ethnicity of Malaysia. It will add diversity to the Western or Chinese dominated feature of many of present-day city-scapes.

In fact, we would argue that this is symbolic enough to become a source of ethnic pride and identity for Malaysia, and such project should be encouraged and supported. The success of the structure should be one which has the blessings and support of its citizenry; and not be labeled as an icon of swollen ego of the promoters — even if it is built with private fund.

Another Mega Tower for KL at this point in time is not an issue of whether it is a good idea but about the Malaysian government prioritizing the citizens’ needs.  After 13 years of prolonged budget deficit and the government running into huge domestic debts coupled with no new economic driver in sight; Malaysians would like the government to focus on urgent priorities that can add income growth for the Rakyat. The central issue facing businesses and the Rakyat is income growth or the prospect of income growth.

Hardship on the Ground

The figures on our economy have sounded alarm for a long time. Actual sentiments on the ground are getting near panic. The common man on the street is under tremendous financial stress. The average wage earner is finding it very difficult to make ends meet; business at the coffee shops have become unusually quiet; the SMI factories order book has not turned a new page for months; one mechanic contractor who supplies machinery and provide maintenance to the SMI sector has not seen a major contract in the last two years; he is selling off his assets in order to keep the operation going and to feed his family! The picture is rather grim and serious.

For the average Malaysian, the cost of living has risen and many people feared that it will continue to rise; the prospect of relief from income increases is dim. The quality and cost of everything; from education to road transport to health care to food need urgent redress. At a time of climate change; many are concerned with Malaysia’s rising food bill as this country has no food security of its own.

The international climate is not helping. The world has not come out of the great financial restructuring. While Time Magazine reports that 1 out of 3 Americans are thinking of walking away from their mortgage; the employment situation in many other advanced countries have not shown significant improvement. The global economy is in the process of transformation; each and every economy is trying to find its feet in a time of great technological and structural change.

When to build?

The idea of building Menara Warisan can be kept alive – to inspire and to unify the community. Invitation from local and international architects to join in a contest to design the structure can be issued; the whole nation should be engaged on a project that can inspire all.  Like the proposed nuclear plant, there is no need to rush; Malaysia can give herself time to create a truly defining structure.

The actual construction of the structure should wait until the following urgent priorities have been addressed and the economy has turned the corner:

1.    A World Class Public Transportation System. Without doubt the productivity and efficiency of any city comes from its public transportation system. The cry from the citizen on these urgent priorities has not subsided.  The government must address this without delay — there is nothing more urgent than that. A good public transportation system has the effect of saving the consumer at least 1/5 of his monthly income; and this money can be released for personal improvement or for other more productive and valuable consumption. A good public transportation system cuts stress, improve quality of life and reduces the health bill of the country.

In addition to a good domestic public transportation web in the key cities; Malaysia must get serious to building a high speed rail link from North to South to prevent the economy from being sidelined by the action in the North ( China) and the activities of the emerging South ( Singapore and Indonesia). Connectivity with key growth centers lifts the domestic boat with the rising tide from offshore waters.

2.    Improving Quality of Education through Privatization. Yes, the foundation of the economy is the skill and knowledge competence of its citizenry. The Malaysian education system needs a radical rethink; the sooner the authorities decide to let the private sector have a stronger hand; the better would it be for the country. Our education system is guilty of being trapped in bureaucratic irrelevance; it is over-burdened in terms of cost.

The world today is changing; and changing rather speedily. Unless we give a free hand to allow the private sector to participate; it is hard to imagine how we can keep our citizenry’s knowledge and competence up to date. Human resources are the core factor underlying investor confidence in a particular location.

3.    Restoring Public Confidence. Not only FDI (foreign direct Investment) to Malaysia has dried up; DDI (domestic direct Investment) is also shrinking. Thousands of high end and upper middle apartments cannot be rented out because there are not many foreigners left in Malaysia. With the daily political theater, both locals and foreigners are not amused.

While most can accept the fact that the New Economic Policy can continue; room created by the New Economic Model policy must be piloted on the development zones to make the transition. Malaysia needs to inspire confidence that it cares about the success of its business people and foreign investors. The government must do all it can to restore confidence; piloting a one country-two system policy to accommodate local needs and meeting international expectations must be executed wisely.

The government of the day would do well to focus its resources to generating a virtuous cycle and change the current depressed mood. Let the people and the world see that the government really gets it. It is not about one mega tower. Once the economy is put on a sustainable upward path, businessmen make profit and the people’s income is growing; we can build one mega tower in each of the 13 state capitals when everyone is happy!

On Kim Quek Being Questioned by Bukit Aman

leave a comment »

“Instead of going after the crooks, the police questions my brother, a political analyst,” said Sr.Theresa Yong, sister of Kim Quek author of banned book ‘The March to Putrajaya’.

Kim Quek was questioned by the police at Bukit Aman between 2.:50pm-3:50pm today, 18 October 2010. Hear what his sister Sr. Theresa Yong and political scientist Wong Chin Huat has to say…

About Kim Quek

Kim Quek is a Malaysian political commentator who has been keeping a very close watch on the fast moving political development in Malaysia. His frequent writings on the local scene appear regularly in many local websites including the popular Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today.

His articles are typically factual and analytical and no-holds-barred when it comes to commenting on the incessant scandals of corruption and abuse of power involving the high hierarchy of the ruling Barisan Nasional that have increasingly dominated Malaysian politics. As such, his writings are a useful counter-balance to the notoriously one-sided narration of the Malaysian mainstream media which are hopelessly manipulated by the incumbent federal power. He hopes to offer readers, through his writings, a view of the other side of the coin, so to speak.

In a sense, this book The March to Putrajaya – Malaysia’s New Era is at Hand is a sequel to Kim Quek’s previous best seller “Where to, Malaysia?” which recorded the disastrous Mahathirist rule and the early auto-pilot reign of Abdullah Badawi.

What is the Third Force?

with one comment

The 3rd Force can offer credible candidates to stand under the PR banner but whose loyalty is only to the rakyat.

The 3rd Force MUST NOT compete against the PR. If it does, we have lost.

Our primary objective is the ouster of the BN government and the restoration of democracy.

GE13 must become the trigger for Merdeka II, nothing less.

Listen to RPK and you ‘ll get a very clear idea of what it means and what you are called to do.

Bersih 2.0 and 1Malaysians say ‘Nah!’

leave a comment »

The smart thing for all Malaysians to do now is to just lie low and vote BN out at the next elections…

Bersih Rally, 10 Novermber 2007

BERSIH (Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections) 2.0 is an entirely civil society movement pushing for a thorough reform of the electoral process in Malaysia. BERSIH 2.0 will be having its official launch soon, so watch this episode of PopTeeVee with Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan, Chairperson of BERSIH 2.0. to find out when!

Meantime, on Perkasa declares war against Namewee, it’s Time for 1Malaysians to say ‘Nah!’

“Pemerhati: The authorities at the New Era College probably reasoned that it was better to cancel the event for the sake of the safety of their students. This is because it has become increasingly obvious that Perkasa, like the cow-head protestors earlier, has the full backing and blessings of the top Umno leadership and the Polis DiUmno Malaysia.

The top Umno people love to have this type of racial tension going all the time as they can use it as an excuse to introduce all sort of draconian measures to continue to rule the country, if they suspect that they are likely to lose the next elections.

The smart thing for all Malaysians to do now is to just lie low and vote BN out at the next elections…

I Am Who I Am by Namewee

leave a comment »

我還是我 I AM WHO I AM by Namewee 黃明志好好野專輯主打

This song speaks volumes, Namewee’s spirit and the state of our society and country.
Below are the English and Malay translation of the lyrics:

我還是我
Aku Tetap Aku
I am Who I am

我的名字 叫明志 這個自我介紹方式
Izinkan ku memperkenalkan diriku, nama saya ialah Namewee
My name is Namewee this is how I introduce myself
從小老師 就認為我是想要惹事
Sejak kecil lagi, cikgu ingatkan ku seorang yang suka buat hal
My teachers always thought I was looking for trouble
我熱愛文字 我討厭公式 我不想面對考試
Aku suka menulis, aku benci formula dan ujian sekolah
I love literature but I hate the school system and all its exams
我更討厭你規定我的頭髮款式
Aku lagi tak suka jika sesiapa komen kat style rambut ku
I get annoyed when people comment on my hair style
我的思考方式 沒有人能夠抑制
Pemikiran style aku, tiada orang boleh Ubahi
I was born with a mind that is beyond the control of others
大人都固執的怪我固執 不懂事
Orang dewasa anggap aku ni degil dan tak matang
Adult always blamed me for being stubborn & naive
我明白 待人處事都有 它的模式
Aku tahu memang ada pelbagai caranya berurusan
I realized our society has its way of life
但不代表 全部人都要變成孔子
Tapi ia tak bermakna semua orang harus menjadi Konfusius
But that doesn’t mean all of us must become Confucius

十五歲 那年初我染上音樂的毒
Pada umur 15 tahun, aku discover muzik
Age of 15 I discovered the joy of music
我透過音符 來降低我內心的無助
Nota nota membantu ku lalui masa yang tak berdaya
Through its notes I find ways to express my thoughts
我學習美術 但依然無法省悟
Aku cuba belajari seni tetapi ia tak membantu
I tried picking up art but it could not hold my inner feelings
是孤獨創造梵谷 還是梵谷創造孤獨
Adalah kesepian mencipta Van Gogh ataupun Van Gogh yang menciptakan kesepian?
Was loneliness created Van Gogh or Van Gogh created loneliness?
中學畢業後 華人得自求多福
Tamat sekolah menengah, kebanyakkan orang cina mencari rezeki di luar Negara
Upon finishing high school Chinese must find ways to further their studies
揮揮衣袖 我決定要到台灣留宿
Akhirnya, aku pun membuat keputusan untuk menginap di Taiwan
Faced with challenges I decided to pursue my education in Taiwan
爸爸媽媽不要擔心 我不會辜負
Ayah, mak jangan risau. Ku takkan buat kamu kecewa
Don’t worry mom and dad I promise not to fail you
等我讀完書 一定會回到歸屬
Habis belajar nanti, mesti saya balik ke Negara tercinta
I will return to my beloved home when I graduate
我會好好過 我必須好好過
Ku akan hidup dengan baik
I will be fine I must stay strong
想家的時候 我就打開電腦拼命創作
Apabila rindu kat keluarga, ku akan terus cipta lagu
When I lone for home I turn on my PC and started writing
牆壁上的大馬國旗 是我的寄託
Bendera Malaysia yang gantung kat dinding menjadi inspirasi ku
My Malaysian flag on the wall keeping my spirit alive
床頭的那張全家福 總是讓我振作
Gambar keluarga kat tepi katil tetap membuatkan ku lebih tabah
My family portrait beside my bed keeping my strong
一個人 在外國 要獨立生活
Seorang hidup di luar Negara, ku mesti lebih gagah
As a foreigner living in a strange country I learn to become independent
我做過很多工作 我面對很多數落
Aku buat banyak kerja sambilan, ku hadap banyak gagalan
I took up many jobs to pay my bills and tuition fees
無論再辛苦 還有音樂陪著我
Tak semestinya betapa susahnya, ku masih ditemani muzik
When times were tough at least I still had my music with me
我理想沒有變 因為我 還是我
Impian ku tidak berubah, kerana aku tetap aku
My dream did not change, I am still who I am

我有我自己的夢 自己會走
Aku akan berusaha mencapai impian ku sendiri
I have my own dream I will keep going
就算再寂寞
walaupun sunyi
Even it’s a lonely path
請原諒我的衝動 我會好好過
Maafkan impuls aku, aku akan hidup dengan baik-baik
Please forgive me for being impulsive, I will be fine
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am
我不怕暴雨狂風 將我淹沒
Aku tak takut hujan lebat membanjiri ku
I’m not afraid the obstacles cos it will not drown me
毅然往前走
Aku tetap akan berusaha
I will keep moving forward
就算旅途再癲頗 我不能回頭
Wakaupun jalan ini agak sukar tapi aku tak akan putus asa
Even if it is a journey of no return I will not give up
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am

2007 年 那是個遲來的夏天
Tahun 2007, itu musim panas yang datang agak lewat
Summer came late in the year 2007
改編國歌事件 讓我人生從此改變
Mengubah lagu negaraku membuatkan hidupan ku berubah
My life was forever changed with my national anthem song
透過網際網絡 我闖了禍
Melalui internet, aku menghadapi masalah
I got into trouble through the cyber space
但我堅持沒有犯錯 有人 說我叛國
Aku disalah fahami dan ada orang kata aku ni pengkhidnat negara
I was misunderstood and got accused of betraying my country
有人 想幹掉我 有人 說不讓我回國
Ada yang tak bagi aku balik ke Negara, ada yang ingin bunuh aku
My life was threaten and I even was told I cannot come home
要我磕頭認錯 政客趁機出頭
Saya dipaksa mengaku salah, orang kuat semua keluar menunjuk muka
I was pushed into the limelight by influential people trying to gain fame
媒體還配合炒作 世界 各地的記者call我
Pihak media dari seluruh dunia tak berhenti call saya
Media got into the action and suddenly international reporters started calling me
我必須學會沉著
Aku mesti tabah
I had to learn to stay calm
謠言越來越多 讓人陷入惶恐
Gosip angin semakin banyak, membuatkan ku makin risau
Rumours started flowing and my heart started pounding
甚至 還有人把偷渡路線圖 send給我
Saya juga terima peta haram tunjuk aku hilangkan diri
I even received maps with international escape routes
爸爸媽媽 對不起 不要難過
Ayah mak, ku minta maaf .. Janganlah kamu sedih
Sorry mom and dad please don’t be sad
牆壁上的國旗 我從來沒有拆過
Bendera Malaysia di dinding tidak pernah saya turunkan
I have not taken down the flag hanging in my bedroom
我破了千萬點閱 也上了各大版面
Youtube ku ditonton berjuta orang, gambarku juga dipampar dalam banyak surat khabar
My youtube video broke records and my face made newspaper covers
有人喜歡有人討厭面臨輿論考驗
Ada orang suka dan ada orang benci. Aku mengahadapi ujian yang sukar ini
I got cheered and got booed I must learn to face the music now
我的故事 被文學家 寫進了書
Kisah aku dicatat oleh penulis buku
My story was documented into a book
我的臉 還被人畫成了 卡通人物
Muka aku dilukis sebagai kartoon
My face even got drawn into cartoon characters
再多褒與貶 都已經事過境遷
Banyak pujiaan dan hinaan ku alami, tapi ia bukan segalanya
I wished that all the fame and criticism would die down some day
畢業後的我 決定勇敢面對誤解
Lepas ku tamatkan pengajian, aku membuat keputusan menghadapi semua salah faham
Upon graduation I decided to return to my beloved country
我用陸路 交通跨越六個國度
Ku menggunakan jalan darat dan melepasi 6 Negara untuk balik ke Negara cinta
With only land routes I walked across 6 countries to come home
拍攝紀錄 沿途上的驚險 和領悟
Ku merakamkan sepanjang jalan yang meliputi ketakutaan dan kesedaran
I even shot a documentary on my challenging journey
一步步 很艱苦 終於回到大馬領土
Ia satu perjalanan yang sukar tetapi akhirnya ku berjaya balik ke Negara tercinta
Thought every step was tought I finally came home to Malaysia
被拍照 被訪問 還被叫到警察總部
Pihak media tangkap gambar ku, ada temu duga dan aku juga dipanggil ke balai polis
I got called to police station and faced many media interviews
雖然 你們都把我 當成公眾人物
Walaupun banyak anggap ku sebagai orang famous
Even though most think of me as public personality
但我必須穩住 要保持個人創作元素
Tapi aku mesti tabah, aku mesti tetap dengan ciptaan lagu ku
But I stayed true to myself to retain my creative art

我有我自己的夢 自己會走
Aku akan berusaha mencapai impian ku sendiri
I have my own dream I will keep going
就算再寂寞
walaupun sunyi
Even it’s a lonely path
請原諒我的衝動 我會好好過
Maafkan impuls aku, aku akan hidup dengan baik-baik
Please forgive me for being impulsive, I will be fine
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am
我不怕暴雨狂風 將我淹沒
Aku tak takut hujan lebat membanjiri ku
I’m not afraid the obstacles cos it will not drown me
毅然往前走
Aku tetap akan berusaha
I will keep moving forward
就算旅途再癲頗 我不能回頭
Wakaupun jalan ini agak sukar tapi aku tak akan putus asa
Even if it is a journey of no return I will not give up
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am

有人說 我的作品荼毒青年思想
Ada orang marah hasil lagu ku mencemarkan fikiran remaja
People criticized my songs for poisoning the younger generation
有人說 我的頭腦都在胡思亂想
Ada orang mengata otak ku memikirkan perkara yang bukan-bukan
Some said my mind is full of dirty thoughts
說我亂講 說我是社會毒瘤發癢
Mengatakan aku ni merosakan moral masyarakat
That I have bad morel in the civil society
還怪我 變成他兒子的偶像
Ada juga yang mengalahkan ku jadi idola kepada anaknya
Some just blamed me for becoming his son’s idol
面對攻擊 我早就已經習慣
Aku dah biasa menghadapi semua halangan ini
I am used to faced difficult situations
保持沉默微笑 是我最好的答案
Menjadi keheningan sambil senyum adalah jawapan yang ku bagi
Keeping silent is my best defense and response
裝模作樣 從來就 不是我的強項
Aku tak suka menjadi kikuk depan orang
Putting a fake face is never an option for me
但我出門逛逛 卻要偽偽裝裝
Sekarang aku keluar, susah sangat boleh menjadi diri sendiri lagi
I can no longer be myself when I go out
我的email 每天都有人來 訴苦
Tiap-tiap hari aku terima email dari orang lain tuk mengeluh
People write to me pleading for help everyday
但我愛莫能助因為我不是 政府
Tapi aku tak berupaya kerana aku bukan pihak kerajaan
I just cannot do much because I am not the government
你們來我facebook 鼓勵我 詆毀我
Ada yang mendorong ku di facebook dan ada juga yang menghina ku
Some come to my Facebook supporting and slandering me
我不刪除因為那是言論自由淨土
Aku tak delete komen-komen kerana ini adalah kebebasan bicara semua
I didn’t delete because it is their freedom of speech
我想要讓你聽見 讓你看見
Aku nak bagi kau dengar, aku nak bagi kau Nampak
I want you to listen and I want you to see
我想說的話 我的電影 和我的音樂
Apa yang ingin ku ucapkan, filem ku, dan muzik ku
The messages I convey through my voice, my film and my music
徘徊尺度邊緣 自由自在的暢所欲言
Adalah kebebasan bicara
Walking the fine line in freedom of speech
那是主流媒體 永遠看不到的世界
Inilah tempat yang tidak boleh diperjuangkan oleh mainstream media
Which is something the mainstream media can never understand
我站在不 同的的角度我不會停下腳步
Aku memandang dunia dari pelbagai sudut dan tidak akan berhentikan langkahku
I stand from a different point and I will not stop
這條思路 是老天送給我的禮物
Jalan pemikiran saya adalah hadiah khas dari tuhan
This path is a gift from god
你說我糊塗 你甚至想要把我說服
Kau mengatakan aku bingung, malah kau ingin menyakinkan ku dengan ayatmu
You claimed that I am lost and want to brainwash me
對不起我 還是我那就是我的態度
Minta maaf, aku tetap aku. Inilah sikap ku
Sorry, I am still who I am, and this is my attitude
在Kuala Lumpur 開始了新的生活
Aku memulakan kehidupan baru di Kuala Lumpur
I am starting new life in Kuala Lumpur
這裡人潮洶湧 馬路坑坑洞洞
Terdapat ramai orang telah terkorban di jalan raya yang berlubang-lubang
It is crowded here and the roads are full of potholes
一不小心 我可能會在這裡失控
Saya rasa ku juga mungkin akan hilang control di sini
If I’m not careful things may just get out of control
這條路 很難走 但我已經 沒有回頭
Jalan ini agak sukar untuk berjalan, tetapi aku sudah tiada pilihan lain
The path is not easy but I do not have a choice anymore

(我還是我 我還是我)
(Aku tetap aku aku masih aku)
Because I am still who I am

我有我自己的夢 自己會走
Aku akan berusaha mencapai impian ku sendiri
I have my own dream and I will go for it
就算再寂寞
walaupun sunyi
Even it is a lone path
請原諒我的衝動 我會好好過
Maafkan impuls aku, aku akan hidup dengan baik-baik
Please forgive me for being impulsive, I will be fine
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am
我不怕暴雨狂風 將我淹沒
Aku tak takut hujan lebat membanjiri ku
I’m not afraid the obstacles cos it will not drown me
毅然往前走
Aku tetap akan berusaha
I will keep moving forward
就算旅途再癲頗 我不能回頭
Wakaupun jalan ini agak sukar tapi aku tak akan putus asa
Even if it is a journey of no return I will not give up
(相信我還是我)
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am
