ABOVE: The court convened meeting on May 08 07 was a historical event for the owners of the abandoned project to "get back their properties" without any further delays and it was held at the Perdana Lake Club (BELOW)ABOVE: the VIPs in the Meeting chaired by Ibrahim Ali, a director of Tenaga Gagah Sdn Bhd the other being Ombokou@ Francis bin Sauyang, who is also a shareholder the other shareholder being Asli @ Martinus bin Musa. These two (possibly proxies) bought over the bankrupt company and revive it. Hoping just to make some pocket money??

ABOVE:The voting results - an overwhelming YES. What choice do you have under such circumstances?. What the Dato' quipped "Say No, you go back, I go back and wait" And WHO created this reality?
ABOVE & BELOW: The voters have to register and verified their names with their IC in order to get the blue voting form for them to mark a cross for the scheme. Even a tick was amended and considered a Yes vote by the developer. These tables were laid with light lunch refreshments for those who stayed for the counting.
, the frustration
and the sadness over
the last 4 years seemed to evaporate when result of a resounding 98% vote
in favor of reviving the abandoned Lagoon Perdana Medium Cost apartments, the service apartments and the 16 shop lots abandoned 4 years ago..
It was a moment almost 1927 purchasers and owners were waiting.
The vote was expected
(and the developer was fully aware of this favorable outcome from the proxy forms submitted back to them)
.The owners were given a Hobson’s choice
. ALL must sacrifice the entire LAD (Late and Ascertained Damage) claims to enable the developer complete the project under the new reputable contractor IJM.
This company has been given a RM700 million contract for completing & reviving the stalled housing projects under Talam and Lagoon Perdana is one of them. The profits they can make are not much but they are eying for other future projects.
The sacrifices had to be made and for some as high as RM35,000 (see ABOVE)
in order to “get back the property” and a total estimated LAD figure is a cool RM36 million not to be claimed.
The only consolation seems to be there is no “topping up of additional payments” and a 3 months waiver for maintenance fee upon completion.
Some quality was also compromised to save cost.
The parquet flooring is now replaced with ceramic tiles for the apartments. There are other conditions given in the explanatory notes
But there were other dissenting voices and the outspoken views by Mr Khrishnan sums it all. He asked for a full refund and there were much applause for him. But the majorities of owners are fully aware of the reality of the situation and voted YES.
The agenda of the meeting
- Opening address by Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng
- Chairman Opening speech & Statement
- Salient points of the proposed scheme
- House keeping Matters on proxy forms
- Questions & Answers session
- Regulations on voting
- Announcement of voting results
- Closing of meeting
The following are a cross section of the purchasers who attended this court convened meeting. The meeting was called to order after the scrutiner confirmed there was a quorum. Some invested their life savings hoping for a little nest to go back to and was confronted with this nightmare; paying interest to the banks and paying their rentals – double burden. So the 98% majority is thanking their lucky stars, that there is now light at the end of the dark tunnel after groping in the dark for 4 years. And a VICTIM speaks out as an individual.............

ABOVE: WHERE is their Bloody CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)?
“I don’t’ want to participate in the project
Look at Talam Corp; a big Giant and they form this little subsidiary
.. anak syarikat... Ong Ka Ting.. said Purchasers can opt out..
.."Refund me back ALL the money
I want the money to be refunded within a certain period not over two years
You might say there is no other way...
Find a way… Your mother can form a baby..
Go back to your mother..."
