One filmmaker raps about his dream for Penang – but is anyone listening?

Independent film producer Andrew Ng has produced this video of what is going in Penang.

His message:

Malaysia Urban Forum 2019 invited me to share my message to fellow Malaysians on my aspiration and dream for a Sustainable Urban Nation. They say that my video message will be viewed by various stakeholders that share the concern for liveable and sustainable cities and communities. I put my heart, my soul and creativity in coming out with this short message in rap. Let us hope that Malaysia Urban Forum will play it in their event.

What do you think?

Gobind Singh should hire Andrew to work in RTM to improve their local content?

Build more 6 lanes highways, encourage more young ones to drive Fast & Furious (F&F).
And more needless loss of both reckless & innocent lives.
And misery to parents of victims of F&F egomaniacs.
Value your life or kiasu F&F ego?

Penang Bridge crash: Missing SUV driver believed to be 20-year-old college student

My suggestion to JPJ & Polis: Gantung lesen of those caught driving F&F for 10 years, gantung lesen for life & jail term of 20 years for causing death.

Go to GreenLane to witness Fast & Furious on the 3 lanes (direction towards Mesjid Negeri) opposite McDonalds, even during 5.00-7.00pm traffic jam.
In the past, without such 6 lanes highway, there was no Fast & Furious temptation. Now, who built such 6-lanes highway temptation? You?

Speed home at this hour because hungry and wife cook home cook food, rush home sweet home,
Most important if not 5 to 7 pm, you want pg lang to reach home 8 to 10 pm? Next more wake up at 6 to 7 pm again. No wonder pg lang gets more disoriented

Excuses, excuses, excuses.
Until accident happens, waste time arguing at roadside & to make Polis report & to take photos of car damages (2-3hrs @ Patani Rd Polis Station) & waste money for car repairs or compensate others. And maybe reach home by 12 midnight!
And have to go back to Polis Station (after 2 days) for final report (by sergeant) of who is the culprit who will be fined & driving licence demerited or gantung.
Not only these, may lose insurance 55% discount (after many years of no-claim insurance).
What a life of impatience & recklessness & brainless.

Human nature. That is why lky throw off Yankees proposal on all bus and built MRT. If worker stay longer on road, loss of productivity.. You yourself has 2 cars and what about your children? Why they drive. Ask pg forum. They orso drive and wants to get home early. I’d at 8 to 10 too tired and Mie accidents. You just give excuses and spin

You need 6 lanes if you have ground level tram – meaning trees may be cut or even some buildings will have to make way!

Pg forum make noise about cutting roadside trees. So gomen build elevated roads. It is orso cannot. It is build tunnels orso cannot, will burden future pg lang. Cut Hill for more homes orso cannot. The then reclaim from sea orso cannot. Why not they take over and see what they can do

I just replied to the comment.

“How to make Penang competitive? Have better bus system.
How to attract investment? Have better bus system for lesser traveling time.
How not to lose job to neighbor country? Have better bus system with better connectivity so that local work force don’t go to as Singapore.
How to have decent income? Have better bus system so that one don’t have to spend average rm1k unnecessarily on car usage.”

Will pg Lang fully support this action? Patronage increase to 90%. The 22k go for the bus? Or still prefer cars even if there are better public transport?

Botak Hill controversy (began) under [LGE’s] watch of botak hills from the 28th Flr Komtar. Only when the public decried the Botak Hill crime against nature ( which could be seen as far away as Penang Bridge ) did he (LGE) come out to condemn (like wayang-wayang?) the ‘rape’ of this hill. Any connection to a recalcitrant developer who was (allegedly) close to him, I reserve my judgement by not pointing fingers. And to this day & hour, our CM Sin Chow is still continuing this ill legacy of LGE of botak-ing more hills inspite of singing “Cleaner, Greener &… Read more »

You must be obtuse to think that Tokong is no longer influential in Penang.

Tokong is certainly not up to lky level. Lky will raise from grave if money is mis spent. But tokong is still mp of of Penang state and he has to answer to his voters.

Niao Kong or Sin (deity) or whatever. They can do no wrong to some KneeJerks! But their ill legacies are there for generations to come. CoastMudPolitan Penang (ala Gurney Drive No More) is one of them. Nyiamak! No wonder the GE campaign ‘trick’ of the blame game (pre308) is to get hold of reclamation of Tanjung Tokong done by Gelakan regime & to continue with this ill legacy of BoHoot so as to build more ill legacies of Niao Kong on the entire stretch of Gurney Drive in the name of Cosmopolitan Penang for the rich + famous!
