The phenomenon of vitality and freshness or ecosystem being restored in Taman Putra Prima 8A eco-wetland
Birds are singing and nesting in the bush by the stream, ponds filled with lily and lotus inhabitation to mixed species of dragonfly, fish and frog , wild and country grown flowers blooming all along the roads……..Let’s preserve all these and keep the biodiversity for our future generation……. being a vocal environmental and nature lover of Taman Putra Prima.
In today’s challenging living environment many housing estates today have their own Resident Associations. No matter whether a housing estate is big or small, it comprises a community who share the same common areas, roads, parks and recreational facilities. What more if majority of the residents are aspiring to live in a gated and guarded community which needs to collect security/maintenance fees and putting up a 24 hour operated guard house.
With these shared facilities they also share the same interest and responsibility of taking care of them by coming together and forming a Resident Association, to make sure their interests are protected.
More often than not, ordinary owners are only interested in their own purchase and most do not even consider their part in the community. This must change, as the spirit of caring for others in the community can only improve one’s life and not make it worse.
Once the resident association is formed and the committee is elected, write to the developer and relevant authorities to inform them of the existence of such an association and the key people to communicate with.
Quite often some major and controversial local issue is the stimulus to form an association, so do not wait until you have problems in the neighbourhood before setting up your Resident Association. Share the happy times together too. The pleasure of your new home is enhanced when you know your neighbours. Good dialogue sessions and careful advance planning among owners, developers and relevant authorities go a long way toward creating a successful community.
(This message is intended to share with our neighbouring phases in Taman Putra Prima who wish to form an RA and subsequently join us for the coalition or Gabungan Persatuan Penduduk / KRT Taman Putra Prima)
These pictures were taken from Taman Putra Prima various phases . (Note: all pictures with date inprint)
Those phases were handed over to purchasers just about one or two years earlier than our phase 8A.
The clear path was maintained by the Chairman with his own worker/machine at his own cost for nearly a year before the Majlis took over after much solicitation.
How long will these well trimmed grasses / lawn and neat fencing at 8A going to stay, if the RA is not fully backed or echoed by the residents………
Could this below be the only long term solution to safe guard your security and property value and to maintain the successful Gated and Guarded Community Scheme exclusive image?

There are currently four Chinese primary schools in Puchong with a total of 12,000 pupils. Due to increased population, some 1,500 students have to study in schools outside Puchong.
Shall we (Taman Putra Prima Residents) jointly petition for one SRJK (C) in Taman Putra Prima???
The Chairman had been battling on the quality and coverage / scope of grass cutting work for the last several months against the developer and contractor, he also eagerly seeking influence from Ahli Majlis and meeting the Director of Landscape for a more proper workdone. However the handover of the manicipal work was without any official notice neither from the developer nor the Majlis until the last quit rent assessment hearing as confirmed by the Pengarah of landscape that grass cutting, drain desilting and maintenance of infrastructure work was already taken over by the Majlis from the developer during the answering of questionaires raised by the chairman.
The developer failed to discharge its responsibility again on the official handover of the maintenance works to the Majlis without formally informing or making any courtesy call to the RA. Despite the fact, with firm determination, repeated assertion and insistence from the chairman, the contractor appointed by the Majlis now extended its coverage to include lawn trimming out side the perimeter fencing and to ensure the fencing is clear from any creeper and grass. Prior to this, the contractor was relunctant to cut any grass out side the perimeter fencing and claimed that it was not within their scope.
The grass trimming / shrubs clearing on both sides of the existing chain linked fence can not be compromised or taken lightly as TPP8A fencing is of very much inferior quality compared to that of 8B which comes with a very durable and solid concrete block and galvanized mild steel reinfored fabric mesh fencing.
Perhaps the PP8A RA needs to consider seriously to set up a sinking fund now for the replacement of existing chain linked fence to a more durable and solid concrete base wall fencing with galvanized fabric mesh (similar to picture below) before it starts falling apart in a very short future.
To the Chinese, the lotus flower represents creative power and purity amid adverse surroundings (the muck and mud of the pond). It is also a symbol of the seventh month and summer when lotus begin their blooming season.
In Buddhism the lotus flower symbolizes faithfulness. The golden lotus mentioned in Buddhist sutras has two meanings: the symbol for the achievement of enlightenment, and a real flower which is beyond normal perception.
Chinese poets also use lotus flowers to inspire people to continue striving through difficulties and to show their best side to the outside world, no matter how bad the circumstances may be.
Being on bad terms with your neighbour can make your life frustrating, day after day. But taking the time to establish good terms with your neighbours has numerous benefits. The community will be friendlier, the neighbourhood safer, and the area a nicer and more comfortable place to live
俗话说，远亲不如近邻。邻里之间互相关心, 互相帮助，是我们的社会所提倡的新风尚，值得发扬。邻居之间要有礼貌，要互相帮助，要互相体谅. 因此, 希望有个好邻居，首先自己要做个好邻居。
Beautiful house, beautiful environment is simply inedequate and even meaningless if without friendly , mutual respect and helpful neighbours.
