Post-Budget 2020: Hongkongers can come and buy Penang luxury condos

UPDATE (13 Oct 2019): Anil Netto commented that the biggest Budget 2020 news to him was Finance Minister Guan Eng’s announcement that the government would be allowing foreigners to buy condos priced at RM600k.

Previously non Malaysians could only buy condos worth above one million, Anil wrote in his blog post titled ‘A Budget to delight developers’.

The Penang-based freelance reporter likened this Harapan government intervention to the joy of Christmas coming early for Penang property developers.

According to Anil, there is excessive land reclamation all over the place, both current and in the pipeline, going on endlessly in his home state.

Penang’s latest “playgrounds for the wealthy”, i.e. a proposed plan to build three artificial islands, will be able to accommodate 446,000 new residents in future.


Helen’s note: The violent Hongkong rioters unhappy with Beijing rule might well flee to Penang’s Dapster spiritual haven now that Guan Eng has lowered the threshold and easing property purchase by [Chinese] outsiders.

Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the founding of modern China as a communist republic.

Hong Kong protesters – who had been terrorizing the island’s streets for months singing ‘Hallelujah’ to the Lord – also stepped up their thuggery yesterday, metaphorically, to stick up their middle finger to China’s National Day.

If DAP not racist, then why its Chinese YBs quiet over ‘LTTE’ arrests?

Penang’s forever bridesmaid-chief minister Ramasamy is as much disliked by some rival factions within the DAP as he is by the Malay right wing.

The police arrest of Ramasamy‘s two DAP Indian Yang Berhormat party colleagues yesterday on suspicion of possible terrorism activities has been likened to the Chinese saying that you must kill the chicken to scare the monkey. Its peribahasa Melayu equivalent is ‘pukul anak sindir menantu’.

Political scuttlebutt has it that the Sosma arrests were to telegraph a warning to Rama who told reporters that he has also heard the rumour of his own impending arrest. Here Rama is the metaphorical monkey/menantu of the aforementioned proverbs.

BELOW: Penang has already had four Deputy Chief Minister (I) who are Malay since Harapan rule began in 2008 but only one Indian DCM (II), i.e. Rama, over the same time period 

(Note: Racist DAP will not promote Rama to be chief minister despite his more than 10 years experience “in waiting” as DCM (II) but instead installed another Chinese in Guan Eng’s job who did not have any DCM experience.)

Prominent politician Rama is the prime target of Malay discontent compared to the DAP’s Seremban Jaya and Gadek (Malacca) two relatively unknown Aduns alleged to have links to the guerrillas formerly operating in Sri Lanka.

Perlis mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin was quoted as saying other DAP leaders who support the now-defunct Tigers should also be charged. ‘Tamil Tigers’ is the shorthand for Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam or LTTE.

BELOW: PAS parliamentarian urged for Rama’s arrest while Rama’s Chinese colleagues are as quiet as church mice waiting to throw the noisy Penang DCM (II) under the bus

Harapan’s coterie of Indian YBs have issued a joint statement condemning the arrests. All the signatories are Indians. Harapan’s racialist approach here is laid bare for everyone to see.

Signing the statement are 16 DAP and PKR Indian elected reps plus one senator. It is clear that PKR’s Indian YBs have greater common cause with their DAP Indian counterparts compared with these DAP Indians getting any form of support from their Chinese Adun and MP colleagues.

For all that the DAP loudly touts itself to be colour blind and beyond race, there is little actual solidarity nor affinity displayed by DAP Chinese with DAP Indians.

And Mahathir really has a special genius in subtly exposing the DAP’s Bangsa Malaysia hypocrisy.

BELOW: Perpaduan ummah … Top leaders from PKR, PAS, Pribumi and Umno in the spirit of Malay unity

In the Mahathir photo op above with PKR’s Azmin, PAS’s Hadi Awang and Umno’s Annuar Musa, their Malay tribalism successfully crossed party lines.

Similarly the PKR and DAP Aduns and MPs, in their joint media statement condemning police action over alleged ties to the Tamil Tigers, have proved that Indian tribalism cross party lines too.

It is only the DAP Chinese and cosplay Christians who pretend very much that they’re not at all tribal.

Kit Siang hit rock bottom today … sad

Lim Kit Siang can sink no lower. He has become nothing more than Mahathir’s apologist-in-chief.

His diversionary response to the Mahathirist rally held yesterday at Malawati Stadium in Shah Alam proves it. (more…)

Will DAP gomen uphold Christian freedom in multi-religious Penang?

The Methodist Girls School in DAP-ruled Penang is being investigated by police over its Christian prayer at a recent awards event for pupils and parents.

MGS is a 128-year-old mission school with a Christian heritage (obviously) where they’ve always recited Christian prayers within its premises and hosted Christian fellowship — see video below. (more…)
