Security Alert - Robbery

1) On Saturday night, four (4) robbers charged into a house at Road 21 while the family of old and young, was finishing their buka puasa get together and robbed them of cash, jewelry, etc. 

The robbers came on motorcycles and were armed with parangs which they used to threaten the family. The robbers were reported to be young Malays, and one of them was possibly a female. A police report has been made at the DU police station.

2) On a separate issue, most of you would know that the Southern Zone "southwest side" G&G scheme has stopped more than a month ago. Some of the residents are at the moment trying to revive the scheme, especially in view of the Road 21 robbery incident. 

3) The majority of us, Central Zone residents, are well aware that we are still fortunate to have a G&G scheme in place. This gives us the comfort that a robbery incident like the one in Road 21 is "very much LESS likely to occur". By having all (except one) entrances blocked off, 24 hour guards present at the entry point and scheduled patrols, it stops would-be robbers rounding/scouting our area. While our guards are not expected to confront "armed" individuals, they will promptly alert the police who can send in their patrol cars and personnel. 

4) We appeal to all households in the Central Zone to contribute to the pooled fund to keep the scheme going for the sake of everyone in the community.

Always keep vigilant of your surroundings. Call the Damansara Utama Police station, at 03-77222222 to send their patrol car (MPV - mobile police vehicle) if you see any suspicious persons around our area.

Leisure Trip To Ipoh

9 June 2017

40 RA SS20 Central Zone members went on a One Day Trip to Ipoh, Perak on 9 June 2017.
They woke up early in the morning to board the bus at 6.30 am. See how cheerful they are, eagerly looking forward to their one day holiday, and to get to know their neighbours better. It is the maiden outstation trip organised by the RA.

The first stop was to visit the Gua Tempurung, Gopeng - the largest natural limestone structure in Malaysia. These caves are a breathtaking gallery of stalagmites and stalactites, providing visitors a unique experience of platform journey through rock formations. 13 of the members successful climbed and reached the "Top of the World" level!

They reached the "Top of The World" level

 After a tiring climb, the members proceeded to a Menglembu Restaurant for lunch. The highlight was the special "Da Feng Shou" menu or the "Grand Harvest Combination Platter".

The next item on their list was to enjoy the popular Tau Fu Fah ......a refreshing dessert.

Shopping for biscuits and kaya puff ......and to take a walk along Concubine Street and the Street Art Gallery.

When in Ipoh, a visit to a pomelo farm is a must. We need to carry some of these fruits home!

Its almost dinner time. Dinner was at a Bukit Beruntung Restaurant.

The members reached home safe and sound at 9.15 pm.
After a tiring day, it time to say "Goodnight" and to thank the organisers and our excellent Tourist Guide and careful driver for the memorable and successful trip to Ipoh.
It was  an  excellent day in fostering closer bonding among neighbours in our community.
