The scarring of the hills of Penang

Check out this video of the highway development around the Thean Teik area.

And this is the collapse of a newly repaired road in Balik Pulau. If this can happen, how on earth are they going to build a monster six-lane highway along the slopes of Penang?

And finally, a reminder of what happened not so long ago:

The topmost photo (before starting the video) alone is a good illustration of
– mindless capitalist greed
– government corruption and insanity in allowing non-essential dangerous destruction of the environment
– popular insecurity and brainwashing that makes the rats (running the rat race) buy these houses.

What happened to the supposed career of the century as touted by exhilarated property gurus – property agents?
It’s a hard sell turning hard-to-sell job! And made worst is the minuscule profit margins given by greedy developers to such hard-to-sell agents of hope.
Better drive Grab. At least, it’s not a false hope, not evangelised in glitzy hotel conference halls with all the hoo-ha or he-he-he!
Still believe in the 3-islands of absolut vodka fantasies of black-bla-belah?
Most likely a hard sell turns hard-to-sell!!! But then who pays the price if not Pontius Chow?

Save Penang! Reject the 3-Islands Reclamation! https://www.change.org/p/prime-minister-of-malaysia-save-penang-reject-the-3-islands-reclamation We object to the proposal to reclaim 3 massive islands to the south of Penang Island, as announced by the Penang Chief Minister YAB Chow Kon Yeow (The Star, 6th May 2019). The lack of public consultation and detailed information about the project is shocking in view of the size of proposed reclamation which is 4,500 acres or 7 square miles – the size of Johor’s Forest City! We call upon Tun as the chairman of the National Physical Planning Council to reject the Penang South Reclamation (PSR) megaproject for the following reasons:… Read more »

Blend with nature
It’s the only way to survive
Ignoring nature at our own peril
When nature strikes calamity flows

The modern developments
The developers can’t cut as they like
There are the natural laws to observe
Once they ignore it disasters will happen

Workers had died before
On hilly slopes developments
Even with this history
We still hear of green light given

The authority always blames
The natural causes or a third party
Shoddy works and cut corners
But ignore the approving officials

Blend with nature
It is the harmony of good neighbours
Do not destroy nature
It never makes a balance

Looking forward to a mall or four in the Thean Tek area. So boring. The hills are so redundant. Good it is developed.
