Farmhouse Supermarket

PKR’s Rafizi Ramli fired another salvo at the Shahrizat family by disclosing that they are the owners of a soon-to-open Farmhouse Supermarket in Singapore. In Units #02-08 to #02-35 in Rochester Mall at Rochester Drive, to be precise. It looks like they are casting anchor in the island city-state. And so far, they have demonstrated that they can operate with impunity. For this privileged family at least, it is business as usual!

Farmhouse Supermarkets Pte Ltd are jointly owned by Shahrizat’s husband Mohd Salleh Ismail, second son Wan Shahinur Izran and youngest daughter Wan Izzana Fatimah Zabedah.

If you keep your eyes peeled, you will often come across this declaration: “Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional” on banners and signboards. It’s not so much a revelation that BN is stooping low to gain cheap publicity as knowing that somebody somewhere is profiting from this venture at the taxpayers’ expense.

Last evening I went to KDU University-College to attend the D'Utama Toastmasters meeting. I observed, listened and pretty much enjoyed the speeches, especially the Ice-breaker speech by newbie Diana Khoo. Plus the fact that Lee Wei Seong was the Toastmaster-of-the-Evening and his role-participation served to enhance the meeting multiple-fold. This meeting earned a 6 out of a 10.
