Dato’ Roshidi Hashim was reported to have admitted that he had failed as the Mayor of Ipoh for being unable to keep the city clean. I accept his admission at the last City Council’s full-board meeting, but I cannot accept his excuse that his failure was solely because the people could not be disciplined and refrained from throwing rubbish indiscriminately.
Local veteran press cameraman Wong Tuck Keong had never expected to come face-to-face with Chin Peng, who was accused of all the atrocities committed during the long-drawn fight against communism in the country.

Among them are a floating market, river cruise, boat race and other water-related activities. I wonder whether they have really given some serious consideration to the viability of their proposals.
