                                                                                                                                    For Circulation
Dear Sir/Madam,
This is an open letter to you, as council members of Perbadanan Pengurusan Anjung Hijau (PPAH) urging you to retire or resign now before you are voted out. Since you have always lamented that this is such a thankless job that is voluntary without any benefit, I wonder why all of you are still clinging on to your positions in PPAH? Isn’t it time you resign or retire now after having served PPAH for so many years??!!
It’s not that you have done such a marvellous job in your capacity as members of PPAH as proven otherwise by the numerous complaints raised against you by discontented residents at Anjung Hijau Apts! There is no secret that there are so many residents distributing circulars exposing the wrong doings of the members of PPAH. Websites, Forum and Facebook have been set up for the residents to pen their thoughts and it appears that you have overstayed your tenure. Please refer to OR OR
Why? ... The reasons:
1.      Incompetency. There are at least 3 legal disputes in court contesting the rash and belligerent manner in which members of PPAH has acted with clear ignorance of the law. There is clear proof of incompetency on your part in dealing with the legal disputes that has led to the High Court (upheld by the Court of Appeals) that delivered judgement that the House Rules enforced by PPAH is ultra vires the Strata Titles Act 1985 thereby rendering the implementation of the provisions therein not valid to deal with the said case.
Consequences: The action taken by PPAH in collecting fines and penalties is now placed in a disputable dilemma as it can be interpreted as ultra vires the Strata Titles Act and therefore not valid. Those who have paid fines and penalties under the ‘invalid’ House Rules should be entitled to get a refund from you. Is this not incompetency?  Clearly, there is now firm proof of incompetency in your wrongful implementation and actions without the proper legal tenet.
2.      Your belligerent and recalcitrant manner in forcefully trespassing into the apartment unit of Mr Lai King Lung, despite legal notice served on PPAH prohibiting to do so,  had resulted in a High Court judgement against PPAH in illegal trespass and PPAH have been ordered to pay costs amounting to RM391,268 and allocator’s fees of RM32,006 to Mr. Lai. It was blind egoism by council member Foo in supervising the illegal trespass and removal of an air-cond compressor from Mr. Lai’s apartment and this illegal act had caused a huge dent in the sinking fund account of PPAH for the compensation and also to pay PPAH’s 3 legal firms appointed by PPAH for their legal fees and costs in defending the action. What is the total damage to the residents? None of the residents (except the inner circle of the council members) knows how much has been spent and what further liabilities the residents have to bear?! Who should pay for this negligence of duty?? Of course, the negligent one and that is the council member(s) who directed the illegal action! Don’t you think so?
3.   Your lack of knowledge and experience in handling and defending the court disputes were very glaring indeed! I remember and for those who attended the previous AGM (the last one being on 9 October 2010), I did raise the validity of the House Rules that were amended without following proper procedures in the passing of special resolutions as required under the Strata Titles Act but I was immediately told by the AGM Chairman Foo in his exact words to me, “Mr. Liew, Sit Down! Go back to do your homework!” Chairman Foo further reiterated that the DOMC (“Deed of Mutual Covenants”) signed between the developer, Berjaya and us was still valid and binding on us all despite the issuance if strata titles and formation of the Strata Titles Act. Of course, I beg to disagree with him but I was ‘hammered’ down and told to go home and do my homework. Is this not belligerence and blind ego (with lack of proper experience or relevant knowledge)? Precisely! The court has now judged that the House Rules is ultra vires the Strata Titles Act. You cannot deny this now as everything is in black and white from the court.
4.   High Handedness. There are numerous incidences which showed that you have failed to practise professional decorum in dealing with dissents and disputes. This is dangerous and in politics, it is suicidal as can be evinced from the fall of numerous governments in the Middle East and Africa, such as Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Sudan. You have wilfully and purposely imposed restrictions, hindrances and obstacles against those who dissent against your misdemeanour and high handed dogma, even though such dissents may have valid reasons and grounds. For example, you deliberately refused to furnish me a copy of the financial accounts or to permit me to fix an appointment to view the financial accounts of PPAH at your office even though it is provided for under the law to do so. My request for a copy of the current Quit Rent receipt 2011 recently (of which payment has already been made to you early this year) was refused with the mockery that I have failed to pay your ‘illegitimate’ fines for having a mop sticking out of the railings last year. Although the fines are illegal and under dispute and nothing to do with the quit rent receipt, your staff, George was adamant that it is your policy to refuse giving a copy of the receipt even though under the law you cannot do so. Based on the illegitimate fine that I refused to pay, you have disqualified me from bidding for season car park in Anjung Hijau, resulting in my car being stolen while parked outside the Anjung Hijau compound on 1 September 2011.
5.    Your lack of transparency and consultation in the various expenditures used from our operating and sinking fund accounts is imminent. You have never posted the financial accounts of PPAH on the Notice Boards for the residents’ views, knowledge and perusal. Even Berjaya had, periodically, posted the half-yearly accounts for the residents’ views, knowledge and perusal but you have for reasons best known to you, refused, neglected and/or failed to do so. Your contention that you do not wish to publish the accounts in the public domain is dubious, misleading and mischievous. No resident can accept this! 
6.   All your expenditures from the sinking fund accounts did not have resolutions passed nor approval obtained from residents via an AGM or EGM. For example, the painting of 4 blocks of Anjung Hijau apartments from last year was camouflaged under the approval of painting one block of apartment i.e. Block A only. The replacements of water filters and linings of water tanks or the recently constructed shelters for the car parks behind Block B, was never tabled with the budgeted expenditure nor were residents consulted over the expenditure or budget. No one knows the manner in the calling and award of the tenders for the work. Nothing to that effect was put up on the Notice Boards but everything was done quietly! Who got the job and how much was the contract? Was it awarded to a council member?  No one knows!
7.    There are many jobs done at Anjung Hijau and money spent but does any resident know the actual procedures of awarding the jobs, the values of the contracts awarded and who is authorised to award the jobs and what are their limits of authority? Beats me! I am completely in the dark!

So, isn’t it time that all of you resign or retire from office to allow for a more competent, experienced, knowledgeable, consultative, transparent and friendly council to lead and manage PPAH in the forthcoming tenure? I therefore urge you to stand down and do not seek re-election as you should know that you have overstayed your tenure.

I rest my case!

Yours sincerely,

Liew Yeon Keong

Beware! Be There at the 4th AGM!!

Hot News! 3 Court Suits and a Car Theft at Anjung Hijau … Read On!!!


What seems to be a peaceful and restful place for the residents at Anjung Hijau especially after work, has of late, become a den of power-welding, authoritarian, hard and harsh rule by the current so-called MC. The following incidences bear witness to the statement above.

(a)   The unreasonable fines imposed by the current so-called MC on our own residents here at Anjung Hijau without negotiation are totally unacceptable. These fines are imposed on minor offences such as plants sticking out of the balconies, clothing accidentally sticking out because of strong wind and some get stuck in the balconies as a result of them being blown off from other apartments nearby. Surely there is room for negotiations as we are the owners and residents here and are all living as one big “family” at Anjung Hijau. The MC should instead be helping and facilitating the residents in all aspects of living at Anjung Hijau.

(b)   Residents who park their cars in no parking zones near the management office just for a while for the small domestic purposes such as paying maintenance fees and buying essential items at the sundry shop below Block A, have been clamped and fined. Even those who have been “unreasonably and senselessly blacklisted” by them also suffered the same fate.

(c)    New residents who came with their belongings and household items in lorries from faraway places such as Johor, Perak and Penang were barred from entering into their new residences at Anjung Hijau during weekends and public holidays without compromise or understanding by the MC or are otherwise fined RM300 for moving in/out on a weekend or holiday. This is cruel and heartless. Where is the flexibility, compassion and the care for the residents? “Cakap besar aje lah! Fikir dia pandai“ and can quote Albert Einstein somemore! They are not fit to run the affairs of Anjung Hijau. Let’s get them out!

(d)   Residents, whom the guards know and recognize and have forgotten to bring their access cards or have left their access cards in another car, have been barred from entering Anjung Hijau which is their rightful place of residence. “Patut lah, depa mengamuk!”

(e)   There are clear abuses of power by the current so-called MC especially in their process of allocating season parking at Anjung Hijau. For those whom have questioned or defied the so-called MC, they do not stand a chance of being allotted season parking at all and therefore risk their cars being stolen when they park outside the compound of Anjung Hijau. This unfortunate car theft incident has recently happened to a resident of Block B who has stood up against the so-called MC on some pertinent issues and as a result was “disqualified” from bidding for the season parking. The current MC is petty, arrogant and vindictive especially when confronted with dissents even though they are within the context of fair comment and the ambit of the law.

(f)     There were instances when the so-called MC had instructed their operation and maintenance staff (as testified by their former operation and maintenance crew) to target those who have been “unreasonably and senselessly blacklisted” by them. This was particularly true for those who had criticized them for the slightest violation of “their amended House Rules”. Why “their amended House Rules” and NOT “The House Rules” … please refer to Paragraph 4(b) below … to know that “their amended House Rules” have been found to be ultra vires  the Strata Titles Act 1985 by the court of law (Sin Chew Jit Poh and China Press dated  1st April 2011).

(g)   Worst still, there have been incidences where residents who have been “unreasonably and senselessly blacklisted” by the current so-called MC have been barred from entering their rightful place of residence at Anjung Hijau. This is absurd and is definitely against the law as has been shown and proven by the court of law brought up by some owners in legal suits against them.

(h)      The yearly Fire Insurance Policy for Anjung Hijau amounts to RM81,800.00. For the last three (3) years, this policy has been awarded to the same agent of the same company, The Great Eastern Company. Our investigations have shown, beyond a shadow a doubt, that this agent who is in the current so-called MC and has been enjoying a huge commission of about RM12,000.00 per year for the last three (3) years. This is a lucrative business indeed … and no wonder she is holding on to her questionable position in the so-called MC like life and death! What I do not understand is why do the other members of the questionable so-called MC still supporting such a person, following her dictates and so easily fooled and pulled round and round by her. We will definitely want to investigate this further. She has the power to award (no other quotations being called) and she uses it to award it to herself. So simple … no right-thinking person will accept that! This is unethical and morally wrong!  


There was no proper election conducted so far. By proper election, I mean, election in accordance to the official Strata Titles Act 1985. As a result, the same people or their cronies have been unconstitutionally “elected” or rather coerced into their team. This has been going on for at least three (3) years now. And that’s why they are so arrogant, bold and high and mighty in their attitude and belligerent in their actions. This is stinking so badly now that many “dah tak boleh tahan lagi lah.”

When victimized owners complain directly (face-to-face) against their unreasonable actions they will ask them to write-in and when they publicize their complaints in either black and white or verbally, they will turn around and ask them to come and talk directly (face-to-face) to them. Eh! … What sort of political game are they playing ah! Dirty, dirty game … worst than politics man! They cannot fool us anymore lah! We have to get rid of them now!


Up to now, there are three (3) court suits being filed against the so-called MC and its seven (7) members.

(i)     High Court Civil Suit No. S-22NCVC-242-2010 – For  Tresspassing.
(ii)   High Court Civil Suit No. S-23NCVC-35-2011 – For Defamation.
(iii) High Court Civil Suit No. R1-24-60-2011 (S-24NCVC-1339-2011) – For Being Unconstitutionally “Elected” on the 9th October 2010 and hence illegal.


In the 1st case (i) mentioned above which was a trespassing suit, the so-called MC has lost the case after employing three (3) lawyers and paying them to defend them in court (Sin Chew Jit Poh and China Press dated 25th August 2011). The courts have decided on the following:

(a)   The so-called MC had been found to have wrongfully and illegally trespassed into a resident’s unit in the earlier hearings, despite employing two (2) legal firms and paying them to defend their case in court. The court further directed the so-called MC to pay the plaintiff RM391,268.00 as cost and another sum of RM32,006.00 as allocator’s fee for having lost the case (Please refer to Sin Chew Jit Poh and China Press dated  1st April 2011).
(b)   The court further judged that “their amended House Rules” (as amended on 17th March 2010 without approval of the owners via an AGM or EGM) is ultra vires the Strata Titles Act. BUT what appeared on our Notice Boards stated and implied that that the so-called MC has won the court suits with all their pleadings except one. Obviously, this is to camouflage and hoodwink the residents into believing that they were right and have won. If they are right and have won, then why do they have to pay the plaintiff cost, damages and the allocator’s fee as mentioned above! This is a simple deduction.
Therefore, by virtue of the court ruling, the so-called MC actually cannot impose fine or penalty on any violation of “their amended House Rules”. This therefore paves the way for residents/owners who had been fined, to demand for their fines to be paid back to them.
The so-called MC, headed and strongly influenced by the two (2) self-proclaimed leaders made an appeal through a third Lawyer (Arbain & Co) and the case was heard on the 24th August 2011 before three senior judges in the Court of Appeal who unanimously dismissed their appeal with additional cost of RM5000.00 to be paid to the plaintiff. The court will now calculate the exact cost as well as the damages to be paid to the plaintiff in October 2011.  They are actually coming head-on against the wall, stubborn and belligerent as they are!
Let it be known that the so-called MC has no right to use either our Management or Sinking Fund or both to pay for the cost and damages incurred in the above case in which they lost. This is mainly because they have acted out of their own without consulting the residents via an EGM meeting and without even considering the laws as laid out in the Strata Titles Act 1985. In doing so, they have already automatically disqualified themselves from holding any future positions in the coming AGM of Anjung Hijau.
The 2nd case (ii) mentioned above is a defamation suit where and the plaintiff has only temporary withdrawn his case against the so-called MC. This means that the plaintiff still has the right and the liberty to file his suit at anytime in the near future. So, what is there to boast about? By doing so, they are just pulling wool over the residents’ eyes. It is just “a calm before the storm.” People like us cannot and will not be fooled by their antics.            

The 3rd case (iii) mentioned above is a court suit to challenge its legality and hence to declare the current so-called MC unconstitutional, null and void. The next date for court mention has been fixed on the 15th September 2011. This is the mother of all the court suits. If the current so-called MC is declared unconstitutional, null and void than it has no right to spend any money for their lawyers to defend themselves and to pay for the cost and damages to the plaintiffs.  Please watch out for the latest news in the coming next few weeks in our Blog, Forum and FaceBook as listed below!

They mean that all the owners will be able to vote for an entirely new MC to manage the affairs of Anjung Hijau professionally in a conducive, congenial and friendly way. However, we have to follow the court ruling in conducting the next AGM. We have had enough of the current so-called MC with two (2) dogmatic self-proclaimed “spin” leaders and their five (5) “boneka”.

The above have been properly recorded and documented from time to time for a period of three (3) years. They can be brought up legitimately by any owner during any AGM or even EGM if the CURRENT SO-CALLED MC DARED TO CONVENE.  This is our democratic right as owners … yes, without fear or favour!

The showdown is now on. The gauntlet is thrown and guns will be blazing. Sounds like a cowboy show? You may be right!

Yes, the council members of PPAH has called for the 4th AGM to be held on Sunday October 16, 2011 at 3.00 pm at Block A Community Hall. I suggest all residents read the Circular and the accompanying documents thoroughly as there are items therein that raise the ire of fair minded owners and residents of Anjung Hijau Apts.

If you have not spotted these items, allow me to give you some of the important highlights and the analysed reasons why these items are in the agenda and/or the resolutions sought.

    1. The Proposed Resolutions under the Agenda
    • Agenda No.5 - The PPAH is now finally trying to adopt a new set of House Rules to take effect from 1 November 2011. This is after the recent Court of Appeals ruling that the previous House Rules was ultra vires the Strata Titles Act. Please read the House Rules properly. Everything you do can be policed by PPAH with a fine and penalty ranging from RM50.00 to such penalty as the Management may in its absolute discretion impose! No warning needs to be given! No reasons need to be evaluated. See House Rules 2.5(d), 2.6(c), 2.7(e), 3.6(b), 4.6(a) etc 
    • Do all of you want these fines and penalties to be implemented immediately? Even the government gives a reprieve and educate the public before implementing any fines and penalties. What about those who has been penalized before 1 November 2011? The fines and penalties paid to PPAH ought to be refunded since it is held to be invalid!
    •  Agenda 6 - Special Resolution is even worse. It is asking for retrospective effect of the House Rules Item 7.1 (iii) for enforcement. It is generally inequitable to pass rules that are retrospective and PPAH is doing just that.
                2.The Report and Financial Statement for the year ended 30 June 2011
    • Please refer to the Balance Sheet - be aware that there is a total sum of RM826,090 under Current Liabilities that the present PPAH owes under trade and other payables. Under the notes, Trade payable amounted to a whopping RM806,431! Why is there such a huge amount owing and what constitute the money owing? Whereas under Current Assets, FD and cash and bank balances adds up to only RM511,127 showing a big cash deficit in our accounts! Assuming PPAH collects all the trade and receivables amounting to RM262,395, the current deficit still amounts to a NEGATIVE (RM77,868) as at 30 June 2011!
    • Again why is there such a big sum of RM262,395 that has yet to be collected by PPAH? Please note that in their previous Minutes of 3rd AGM, the 4(c)(1) wherein George, the accountant, boasted that the collection averages 98%. Please see Income Statement under total income for 2011 amounted to RM1,092,070. Anyone can calculate that the amount receivable amounted to more than 20% of total income! Therefore collection cannot average 98%! This is misleading!!
    • Please check the Cashflow Statement.under Cashflow from investing activities. There is a negative (RM255,300) in the Maintenance Fund. How is this accounted for? Another (RM99,069) has been spent for purchase of property and equipment. Under the notes RM83,179 accounted for plant and equipment. What plant and equipment that were purchased costing almost RM83,000? Was there approval by owners via special resolution in AGM or EGM for this amount to be spent? Were you and I, as owners and payees of our Maintenance and Management Fund informed of this expenditure? Where is the transparency and accountability of this money spent?
    • Under Reserved Fund, a sum of RM497,545 has been utilized! Where, when and whose  approval was sought and given to the council members to utilize such a huge sum from the Reserved Fund? 
    • Detailed Statement of Income and Expenditure - There has been an increase in almost all spendings under the Maintenance Contract such as Cleaning, Lift & Escalator Maintenance and security services but no reasons were given for these increases! Under Building Maintenance, despite the huge painting contract that was done, the building and painting works still accounted for RM28,568 in 2011. Maintenance of tools and equipment has also gone up whereas new expenditures of RM7,386 (fire protection) and RM12,100 (repair of drainage & road) were recorded in 2011 compared to nil in 2010. 
    • Under Admin Expenses - there is still a casual labour of RM30,787 on top of an increase in Salary, Overtime and Incentives, transportation and upkeep of office equipment! If there are salary increases and new staff employed, why is PPAH paying for accounting fees of RM24,000 per annum? Shouldn't the admin staff be competent enough to keep the set of accounts? Other than that, what baffles most was why and how a whopping amount of RM98,990 was spent on legal fees? Who approved this expenditure? Was there a special resolution table to and approved by all owners made to spend this amount? Why should PPAH be made to bear this amount if it is due to the negligence of one or more members of the council? We, the owners and residents of Anjung Hijau demand an explanation!
To be continued.......

It was 8-30 pm on Friday 12 September 2011 when two of my daughters came back from their planned trip to OUG looking distraughted and alarmed.. Papa, we cannot find our Alza at the car park area! I think someone has stolen our car!!

Not feeling well for the past few days, I put on my sneakers and got onto my Toyota that was safely parked at my car park bay within Anjung Hijau and drove around the car park areas outside surrounding AH, hoping that my daughters may have forgotten where they have parked the Alza. After 5 minutes, my heart sank. It's now confirmed!

Perodua Alza 1.5SE (White)
Reg No. WTR 9338
Born: April 2010
Departed: 8-45 pm, 2 Sept 2011.
Age - 17 months old

The police report follows. Then the Heartache begins when you were told of what your insurance normally pays - estimated about 80% of the insured value. Insurance amount covered basic model only therefore did not cover special items installed like leather seats etc. Total loss - Over RM20K.

Now, the inconvenience sets in. Have to compile submission for insurance claim. No spare car to pick up the children from school. Need to look and shop for another car.

Now the anger starts. How did it happen? Why did it happen to me? Who/What caused this mishap to me and my family? It all pieced together when I read this blog; starting with the high handed manner in which the the MC has treated me and my family to the unilateral rejection of my application for season car park by the arrogant characters within the MC forcing me to park outside the compound of Anjung Hijau Apartments. This has resulted in my car being stolen and caused losses exceeding RM20K to be suffered by me.

So, for those who are parked outside, BEWARE! Your car is not safe there. If you are suffering the same fate as I am, please join us in our crusade to remove the belligerent and arrogant characters from our MC so that these characters do not disturb our peace anymore.

Join us to make Anjung Hijau a more congenial place to stay. We'd love to hear from you.Leave your name and contact no. to us.

Friday, August 26, 2011


Due to the negligence and belligerent attitude of some council members of Anjung Hijau Management Corporation (AHMC), it has now been decided by the High Court and upheld by the Court of Appeals on 24 August 2011 that AHMC will have to pay costs to Mr. Lai King Lung for their unlawful trespass into the property of Mr. Lai. A copy of the Fair Order as filed and endorsed is enclosed herein.

Please be informed that there will be further costs to be taxed by the Court on AHMC to pay to Mr. Lai for having lost their appeal in the Court of Appeals, not taking into account the legal fees and other costs to the MC's lawyers who were appointed by the MC in attendance to the hearing. This is expected to run to tens of thousands of Ringgit and all these could have been avoided if our ARROGANT MC were to listen to the voice of the residents!

It is time that this bunch of irresponsible and naive members of the MC be taken to task on the following:blunders made by them -

  1. Who gave this Foo Yau Lim the right to act beyond his legal authority by instructing his agent/ the contractor to trespass onto Mr. Lai's Apartment  and remove his air conditioner unit despite being served with legal letters prior to his action!?
  2. Why were the residents of Anjung Hijau NOT CONSULTED before the members of the MC embark on this EGO trip of going to court to litigate against Mr. Lai with a poor chance of winning the case? There was no transparency nor reference to the residents as to the legal costs involved in the litigation?
  3. Why did the members of the MC not come clean as to the facts and figures of the actual judgement that the MC has to pay which already EXCEEDED RM 400K based on the last judgement but the MC members continue to HOODWINK all AH residents by implying in their posts on the Notice Board that they have won the case against Mr. Lai by posting half or hidden truths as to the actual rulings of the case?
  4. There is another court action taken by a Dato' Han of Block B that questioned the legal standing of the current members of AHMC in legitimately holding office. This matter is scheduled to be heard in the High Court on 15 September 2011. Why is the MC keeping quiet and hiding the facts of this court action by Dato Han from AH residents? This impending court case will have far reaching implications on the MC and all decisions taken by this "illegal MC" if held to be so by the High Court. BUT our MC is so hush hush about this. I bet very few residents of Anjung Hijau is even aware of this court action!!
All of the above stinks of a big ugly RAT that the MC is covering up. Do you still want an MC that is not transparent in its dealings and non consultative and refused to interact with the residents? If you do, then good luck to you. You are not worth the bother. BUT if you think that this should change, join us in our quest to ensure that AH Apts is better managed in all its affairs and operations. Please come to the next AGM and cast your vote to competent people with sincere responsibility and integrity to be elected into the council to manage your home.

Be relevant!. You can start by posting your comments in this blog or our forum at

We need more fair minded people to be involved to make our Apartments a better place to live in.
