Day 9: Tabung Harapan Malaysia

Two Thursdays ago, Gerakan’s Veep A Kohilan Pillay stumbled out of his hiding place to criticize Tabung Harapan Malaysia as an irresponsible initiative. 

In his own words, he described it as “no more than a publicity stunt simply to cater (to) the sympathy of the Malaysian public”. 

I trust somebody who knows this idiot to please tell him that his party were annihilated in GE14 and Gerakan no longer exist in our political landscape. Meaning, they have become totally irrelevant. They no longer have any voice. 

Malaysians should sensibly ignore Kohilan who still insisted on speaking from inside a thrash can. 

I do need to call City Hall to get their garbage truck to drop by Menara PGRM in KL’s Jalan Pudu Ulu, Cheras to remove him because his stench is becoming overpowering. Yucks! 

Today is Day 9 of the Tabung Harapan Malaysia and the total contributions todate have reached RM52.2 million.

Penang-born mayor of Kapiti Coast district in New Zealand, K Gurunathan urged fellow overseas Malaysians to donate too. 

He explained: "As a Malaysian, who left the racial politics, discrimination and corruption to seek a future in New Zealand, I appeal to the Malaysian diaspora in New Zealand and around the world to also support the campaign”. 

He said he would visit the Malaysian High Commission in Wellington next week to donate NZ$1,000 (RM2,800). 

A thumbs-up to him! A Malaysian is always a Malaysian! 

On Wednesday, the Ipoh YMCA announced plans to host a charity dinner on July 22 as part of a cash donation drive for the said Fund. 

And the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) plan to donate RM1 to Tabung Harapan Malaysia for every visitor to the National Matta Fair (September 07-09, 2018). 

On Tuesday, Negri Sembilan-based property developer Matrix Concepts Holdings donated RM3 million; likewise Pagoda Foods (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and Weil Hotel, each gave RM10,000. 

Monday saw film director Jeffrey Chiang pledging 10 percent of the net box office earnings collected for his upcoming supernatural horror Buyer Beware – slated for a July 19 release in cinemas nationwide. 

On that day too, the community funding initiative received RM100,000 from the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College TARCian Alumni Association.

The money keeps rolling in. Thank you, Malaysians!
