The complete restoration of Millennium Park

Year 2008
This was how Millennium Park looked like when we first took over the State Government in 2008. The former Barisan Nasional government spent millions decorating this open space with silver birds and trees which disappeared soon after and then they allowed this valuable open space to become an eatery, which was also abandoned.

In 2008, my office wrote to MPSJ and requested for the abandoned structures to be demolished.


Year 2009
On World Environment Day in June 2009, a huge tree planting exercise was carried out together with JKP Zone 1, SJRA, USJ RA, BSRA, corporate sponsors and MPSJ.

Residents participated in restoring the Millennium Park into a green area.



Year 2010Now that the place is restored, I organised a healthy living campaign for my residents. A qualified trainer will lead the residents all over DUN Subang Jaya every Saturday from 7:30am to 8:00am in an exercise session. This program will be on-going for half a year and is sponsored by my office using the annual allocation given by the Selangor State Government for less than RM10,000.

Early sunrise

Residents from all races and all ages (see kids in the pic) come out every Saturday for this exercise program. Last week, the group has grown to a size of 60 people. Most of them come from the SS13 flats nearby. Others from all over Subang Jaya, USJ and Bandar Sunway. Join us if you can!

I am a firm believer that taxpayers funds must return to the people for their benefit. BN spent millions and benefited only the recipient of the contract. We spent RM10,000 only for this exercise program and the residents walk away happy and healthier every week!

Dear Ms. Yeoh,

I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for what you have done for the people of your area.

I do hope that people from other corners from our beautiful country will start to do the same thing you guys are doing.

It's a beautiful scene to see the public using public spaces that are open to the public, instead of littering the public spaces with cold and ugly looking structures.

Thank you again for the heart-warming report.

And I was wondering what happened to the eyesore previously. Well done :)

Here is hoping you can do something about that other eye catching building further down the road.

Dear YB

I am very pleased of the efforts to make Millineum Park a pragmatic and useful venue for the SJ / PJS residents.

Keep up the good work and the faith to make us a better SJ.

Bless you

Great job!!! It is small things like these that bring the biggest impact to the people.

News like these should be told throughout Selangor and the country. And don't be shy about blowing your own horn.

Nothing as powerful as showing the rakyat what things were before and after. A picture tells a thousand words.

PS said...

What, you didn't spend millions? Oh no, what are the cronies going to live on? Look what you've done! They might even have to move to another state! :D

(Btw, I think you planted the trees too closely.)

Good job, though.

Hi Hannah,

Glad to see all these happenings in Subang Jaya & USJ areas nowadays!

Show more "Before & After" results like the above sharings next time.

Certain people still need to wake up and open their eyes BIG BIG to see the differences that Pakatan Rakyat brings to Selangor!

I just believe that many people now just CANNOT WAIT for the next general election to come, because many people sure want to vote for Pakatan Rakyat, not only in Selangor, but in many other states!

God Bless.

You are truly an inspiration. If only more politicians (for want of a better word) were like you, Hannah....

jkkiang said...

in 1998/99, i rented a room in ss12/3c and i remember this piece of land used to be a small piece of green lung. i was so upset when the government decided to build a "concrete" park! wat were they thinking?

insha'allah, thank God and namo amitabha, you have restored this piece of land to its glorious days again.

thank you Hannah and keep up the good work!

Geronimo said...

I am a non-SJ resident and from what I have seen and heard, I must say you are one of the very rare breeds of YBs that we see these days that have done a lot for their constituencies. The point is, it is always these little things that mean a lot to ordinary folks, not high rise towers, flashy empty airports and monuments that would probably fade away in the years to come. Well done, Hannah, well done. May I end by dedicating this simple song to you?

i am no resident for USJ but used to travel to subang jaya to work. the previous so-called millenium park was nothing but a white elephant project, eyesore, spending millions of rakyat money into nothing but piece of crap. when i see it was restored into green and ground for exercise, it was a relieve. And it only takes less than RM10k. i wonder how much was pocketed when the place was 1st started during the BN regime. Not speculate but this is what the image of BN have been pass down to us - full of corruptions, cronism, nepotism and wastage of rakyat money

Dear Folks,
I do not live in SJ but have had the privilege of going to this place whenever i visit friends living in SJ.

I sincerely hope that those readers here, who are bi-lingual or even tri-lingual have the good heart to translate this to Bahasa Malaysia/Chinese/Tamil (dan lain2).
Please do this quickly and get the word out of this PR representative and others before it is too late (GE13 looming).

More people (especially voters - registered & unregistered) must know what is their rights and the good politicians at work.

Let us help (educate) ourselves to get the politicians this good country deserves.

Thank you.
I am apolitical - but there is certain alliance that would never ever get my votes ever.
