Mid-autumn Festivities

Happy Mooncake Festival to all!

The elected representatives of Kelana Jaya constituency are busy this weekend, continuing with their community engagement activities.

Last night I attended 3 events; the PJ Coffeeshop and Hawker association dinner then to Subang PJS 9 to join YB Hannah Yeoh for a community night event with residents. Then, to USJ 3 for a lantern festival event, celebrating with kids and parents around the meighbourhood.

This morning at 8am I was with Nik Nazmi to do a tree planting event with the residents of Tiara Condo. We had a short exercise session to warm up courtesy of Fitness First. Later, I went to Puteri Condo for an anti-dengue campaign. We did door-to-door campaigning to meet residents and distribute leaflets and abate. The condo alone had recorded 60 cases this year and is the main hotspot area in Kelana Jaya. Members of MBPJ and Ministry of Health were also there to help.

At 10 am, I joined YB Hannah at Subang Jaya ss 15 to launch an autism workshop organised by the City Discipleship Presbyterian Church. It was great to catch up with my friend Meng Yee. YB Hannah is a strong supporter of this program and has consistently championed this special kids cause.

Great engaging with the community this lantern festival weekend.

Interns Needed

My office welcomes anyone interested in an internship experience. We offer a small stipend that will help with lunch and travel costs, and lots of experience. We encourage those interested to undertake at minimum a one month internship. All interns receive a letter of recommendation upon completion of their internship.

As an intern you will be working with my two permanent staff and assisting them in their day to day duties. This includes, but is not limited to administrative work, following up on cases, assisting with research, and occasionally attending community events. If you have ever wondered what an MP’s office does or what an MP’s role in the community is, this is an opportunity to find out.

If you are interested please send your resume and cover letter to gillian.wongchen@gmail.com.

Selamat Hari Merdeka!

Happy Independence Day, Malaysia!

Today I attended two Merdeka functions in the morning. The first was at the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association with YB Hannah Yeoh. The SJBA event as usual, is well organised and well attended. They also served some of the nicest ondeh-ondeh. After delivering a speech, I went to PJS10 Seri Setia to hand out prizes for a Merdeka Jogathon event. I arrived just in time and together with the Councillor Halimey, we helped out with a community lucky draw too. PJS 10 Residents Association and Rukun Tetangga are quite active and this is my fourth event with them. Mr Pule and Encik Mansor jointly run the community there. They also happily reported that crime rate has been on a downtrend.

In the same morning, my staff Tim and Gillian went to Sepang with 90 residents (some adults mostly kids) from Desa Mentari for an automobile racing cars exhibition called Summernats. It’s an Australian thing, apparently. My team reports that the kids were all super happy being given VIP seats in Sepang F1 and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The tickets and transportation were courtesy of JPM Motorsport and other Summernats sponsors.

Deloitte CSR Initiative in Desa Ria & Desa Mentari

On 29th August 2014, Deloitte came to Desa Mentari and Desa Ria to do their community outreach program. They mobilised some 150 persons and cleaned up the playground in Desa Mentari Block 8 and painted the staircases of Desaria.

YB Nik Nazmi and Halimey were also there to greet the Deloitte project leader Nizar. The Deloitte team were dynamic and down to earth; accountants doing manual work! I spent about 3 hours there talking to the participants. I want to thank the Deloitte team and hope for more future community engagements.
