It is indeed with great relief to learn that after a long and tedious bureaucratic process; finally we got the Temporary Occupation License (TOL) or Lesen Pendudukan Sementara (LPS) for our guard-house. And this shall mark the ENDING (dismissal) to the Demolition Order for being alleged illegally occupying or intruding into public reserved land by the land administrator of Pejabat Daerah Sepang.

For your information, We supposed to get the TOL before our last ground breaking ceremony on 30/6/2012, however this was turned down by a standing order from the Selangor MB to reject all application for TOL on state land in relation with the issue of Green Lane in Sg Buloh on 8/6/2011.

MB: Kerajaan negeri Selangor menolak semua permohonan Lesen Pendudukan Sementara (TOL)

PTG order : Bil 1/2012 stop  processing TOL plan on government reserved land

Following that, the RA had written numerous appeal letters to the land office, including YDP of MPSepang, PTG, Exco and the Mentri Besar of Selangor. Anywhere we were grateful that YB Teresa Kok had personally committed to bring the matter to PTG and State Executive Council meeting. And our chairman was also selectively been invited to participate in a workshop called by the PTG for the re-examination and formulation of new policy pertaining to G&G and TOL matters.

Finally a circular (Pekeliling) was issued by the Pengarah Tanah & Galian (PTG)  Dato’ Kamarulzaman Bin Jamil on 14/3/2013 that guard-house approved by local authority is exempted from the Menteri Besar standing order or in other words guard-house TOL application is re-opened now.

Incidentally, according to land office officer PP8A guard-house was the 1st  TOL for guard-house being approved under the Pekeliling PTG Bilangan 1/2013

Pekeliling Pengarah Tanah Dan Galian Selangor Bil 1/2013

After seeing all these documents and letters above, one may ask: 

“Why the RA takes all the trouble and relentlessly going through all these hassles to apply building plan permit and TOL for our guard-house?”

For a successful G&G community scheme on non Strata Title Act (1985)  residential housing cluster,  it is a pre-requisite to get the guard-house legalized by the local authority or else risking of being demolished as evident in the Puchong Hartamas    (click to read more)  incident. It is understandably that not all  100% per cent of the residents are supporting the G&G scheme and agreed or abide to the fees collection structure, thus the RA is concerned that some of  the more reluctant residents may be anti-establishment , dissident or even ill feeling committee member may take the issue of guard-house illegality to sabotage our G&G scheme. The penalty is really hefty under Section 426 (1c) of the National Land Code 1965.

To ensure our security installations or equipment are rightfully in place, to protect our property and life in perpetuity,  to underpin and to enhance our property value, the RA wouldn’t want to run the risk of our guard-house being demolished and thereby jeopardizing our successful setup of  the  much sought after Gated & Guarded Community Scheme Status




The Star 20/9/2013: Dad: Learn from  Lee Kun’s tragedy


I was sitting at the Old Town White Coffee 2 days ago and saw some Taoist priest performing some ritual and followed by police forensic squad doing some investigation. Not knowing what happened until today news paper reported a snatch theft victim was dead at that scene.


喪親痛,受夠了! 吳俐君家屬︰“警察,請保護平民”

但是我要补充和纠正, 抢攫案是发生在围篱计划外, 是在商店外的交叉路口, 照片背后为我常歇息聊天的 Sri Manja Old Town White coffee.

Reccurence of newly patched up sinkhole at Jalan Putra Prima Tengah



My worker is putting branches to the sinkhole to alert motorist


The sinkhole is getting bigger and deeper after 4 days from the above picture taken

Motorists commuting the Jalan Putra Prima Tengah between Taman Mas, Taman Putra Prima Phase 3B, 2B, 1A-1B and new development 6A please beware that recurrence of old sinkhole is found next to manhole MH2.

For your information this sinkhole was developed some time in March this year, After my tip off to the Majlis, it was kind of filled up and patched up. However in less than half a year the sinkhole recurring again. For the safety of my fellow residents, I had instructed my worker to put up some branches to alert motorists while reporting the incident to the Jabatan Kejuruteraan MPSepang immediately via whatsApp photo upload.

See more on previous post on the same spot/ happening at Gabungan blogspot


Poor infrastructure is likely to affect the demand of any new development and the quality of living to the existing schemes.

For long term solution only seems by relining of fauty sewer line.

For long-term solution, apparently only by re-lining of faulty sewer line beneath, many cases showed that by simply patching up the sink-hole will not last for 6 months.


The traffic load is likely to be heavier, when more new schemes and 2 schools are added along the sinkhole prone road.

5/9/2013 RA reporting

A morning heavy downpour had flooded the western end portion of poor drainage newly re-built Jalan Putra Prima Utara. 2 cars were stranded while many cars were back off and making  detour.

This morning incident was immediately reported to the Majlis via whatsApp upload. The MPSepang engineering department officer responded to me follow by immediate deployment of excavator to open up some ditches in an attempt to ease off the discharge of flood water.

At the meantime, the Majlis had already commenced drainage flow diversion construction works where drain water flow is re-diverted directly to Taman Mas main  monsoon drain instead of poorly flowing to the water retention basin. The main problem is  the storm water retention level is relatively high and embankment or retaining structure was made for the purpose of slowing down storm water from rapidly discharging into the nearby Klang river, thus causing poor drainge and stagnant water at the flood spot.

Hopefully after the drainage diversion work completed, there will be no more flooding to our newly re-built sunken road.







Hornet nest was set on fire by our guards

A hidden honest nest nearly the size of a basketball under the dense leaves was discovered by my 7-year-old daughter this evening in front of my house by the jogging path.


Vespa Affinis Indonensis

From my observation, the hornet has 2 orange bands covering the first and second segment of its abdomen while the rest of the abdomen is black. It has been identified as The Lesser Banded Hornet or Vespa affinis (黄腰虎头蜂) (Tebuan Tanah)  According to literature findings this is the most aggressive of the three species of hornets found in Singapore & Malaysia. It will attack with the slightest provocation  in large numbers and give chase over longer distance and its sting is painful. The effect of the poison injected with the sting depends on the species and how sensitive the victim is to the poison. Response can be localized pain, swelling and redness. In more serious cases chest constriction, wheezing and vomiting may occur. Immediate medical attention is advisable.

For the safety of my children and all PP8A joggers, I decided to burn down the hornet nest on that  same night without hesitation. (see pictures above)

“It is also advisable that those, especially in close contact with these insects be educated on the danger of hornet sting and preventive measures to be undertaken.”
