Penang-based activist Tan Seng Hai came up with this report:

I took a drive to Teluk Kumbar in the South-East District of Penang Island for seafood the other evening. I was last there about six months ago. What I saw of the scale of development and hill-cutting shocked me.

Spare a thought for Adam Adli and Mandeep Singh who were arrested this evening after a protest at Sogo. See this Bersih 2.0 statement on the Aliran website.

A Kuala Lumpur-based political analyst sent in his impressions of the event:

By all accounts, it was an eventful night and the political stars from Pakatan Rakyat graced the occasion to lend support to Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Yesterday I published a post saying that the MPPP was calling for a request for proposals for three lots of land near the Gurney Drive roundabout – though I wasn’t sure then of the precise location of those lots.

Today I can confirm the precise location of the three lots. Two of them – Lots 1011 and 1373 – are covered by the white space above. It is possible that a large high density commercial or mixed development complex will spring up in that area perhaps to rival Gurney Paragon or other similar complexes.

The MPPP is calling for a ‘request for proposals’ for a plot of land at Gurney Drive.

From what I hear, this plot is somewhere near the Gurney Drive roundabout and is likely to attract bids from many large companies. I am not sure where the precise site is, but I believe it is somewhere here (see below), perhaps around five acres including nearby roads. MPPP should tell us exactly where this land is located.
