It got me really upset that I am now all stressed up whenever it is mentioned.
It's quite difficult quarreling over something like that with someone you love.
Well, never mind....I think everyone is writing or had written about it.
So, I better write about something else.
By the way, is this Eric Paulsen actually a Scandinavian? The name sounds Scandinavian, but the guy looks just like any other Chinese man.
Maybe Scandinavian banana, I guess....
Okay, now to more serious business.....
I think this time I better write about my home state Johor again.
Been quite a while since I last wrote about it.
Well, the robbing and looting is still ongoing, apparently.
Same ole same ole, life goes on, I guess.
The latest I heard was that UEM had been blacklisted from operating in Johor, at least for the time being.
Among UEM's big projects in Johor is the RM850 Million Medini Project at Iskandar Malaysia.
Everything related to UEM was said to have been frozen by the state government for the past three months.
UEM's operations in Johor had virtually came to a stand still since then.
You all can check on this with any member of the UEM's BOARD OF DIRECTORS
I know, no point checking such things with Johor MB DS Mohd Khaled Nordin. He won't tell you anything.
I was told that UEM got into the trouble after one of its officials issued a statement questioning the preferential treatment given to foreign developers, or to be more precise, the mainland Chinese companies developing the huge plots of reclaimed land along the Tebrau Straits.
The UEM official had openly made the claim, causing a lot of red faces in Kota Iskandar and elsewhere.
What most irked UEM and other local developers was when the state government entertained every whims and fancies of the mainland Chinese companies.
The same treatment was not given to the locals.
I learnt that even the local Chinese companies had bitched about it but unlike UEM, they did not dare voiced out their complaints.
It is not immediately known when UEM may dig itself out of the hole in Johor.
Anyway, this is part of how I feel about the whole land selling to mainland Chinese thing in my home state,
Meanwhile in Johor...the song remains the same
Well, I still think that the only guy who can stop all these nonsense in Johor is PM Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
I think he needs to be tougher.
If the nonsense continues, I believe Johor as the Tiang Seri of Umno will be no more come the next general election.
