Where are YB Mong and James Jemut Masing ?

Pantu, Sri Aman, 26th April 2009

YB Snowdan Lawan announced that a bridge crossing batang Strap will be built within this year. According to Snowdan, the allocation for the bridge totaling RM 19 million has been approved. The tender for the project should be opened in middle of this year and the bridge is expected to be completed by next year.

These tapahs, are they from here or elsewhere ?

Pesta Tapah panrtu had been held from 24th April 2009 and ended on 26th April 2009. According to Snowdan, the objective of Pesta Tapah pantu is to attract tourists to this small/cowboy town thus help to provide another avenue of income for the residents of Pantu and it surrounding. The opening ceremony was officiated by Francis Harden whereas Closing by Snowdan himself. PRS President James Jemut Masing and YB Mong the PRS Youth Chief were not seen during the opening and closing ceremony of Pesta Tapah. Some PRS supporters met during the Opening and Closing ceremonies informed that there was a rift between JJM + Mong & Donald Lawan/Jabu .

Where are Masing and Mong ?

With the implementation of SCORE in Nothern part of sarawak , whereby most of the development funds been channeled to Mukah, making it impossible for SNOWDAN to start construct the bridge within this year.
Probably the annauncement made by YB Snowdan during his closing speech was just a gimmick and  meant to make the Closing ceremony more merrier. To the people of Pantu or those who are going to benefit from the bridge dont hope too much , the annauncement could be just an empty promised by BN. But if the construction still proceed to YB SNOWDAN, I SALUTE YOU.....but if the promised is empty, to YB Snowdan and the rest of BN YB, I only have this to say to all of you...
" Stop Acting like an empty can"........

Puan Sri Laila Taib Passes Away..Condolence to Taib & all the Family Members

KUCHING: Puan Sri Laila Taib, wife of Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, succumbed to cancer at their residence in Demak Jaya here Wednesday. She died at 3.45pm.
Laila, 68, is survived by her husband, four children including Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Abdul Rahman, and 15 grandchildren. Taib’s press secretary Amin Sahmat said the burial would be held at the Demak Muslim cemetery Thursday morning.
Among the first dignitaries to pay their last respects at Demak Jaya on Wednesday were Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is currently on a two-day official visit to Sarawak, and his wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Rahman. The Polish-born Laila and Taib, then pursuing his law degree, were married in Adelaide, Australia on Jan 13, 1959. Three years later, she arrived in Sarawak. Her maiden name was Lejla Chaleck.
In paying tribute to Laila during their 50th wedding anniversary celebration here last January 13, Taib had said she was his pillar of strength and source of inspiration. “I must acknowledge that it is not easy for any woman to be a politician’s wife. Laila has played a major part in making my life very bearable,” he said.
A local writer, Christina Mamora, who was commissioned to write Laila’s yet-to-be published biography, A Story of Love and Compassion, described her as “kind and caring towards others.” “Having spent many long hours interviewing her (Laila) over the past year or so, I was very sad to think how nice and supportive she has been to me, especially in documenting stories about women, when I heard that she was sick,“ she told Bernama here.
In recognition of her active involvement in social work, including as Sarawak Badan Amal Dan Tenaga president, she was awarded the Darjah Utama Yang Amat Mulia Bintang Kenyalang, which carries the title “Datuk Amar” in 1988.She was also the Pertubuhan Kebajikan Islam Malaysia vice-president (women’s committee chairman) while the setting up of the Laila Taib Cancer Charitable Trust was one of the many testimonials of her keen interest to help needy patients and see that research activities could be carried out for the people’s benefit. -- Bernama
