RAKYAT DIMINTA HARGAI USAHA KERAJAAN JAGA KEDAULATAN NEGARA – ROBERT PHANG

SEMPORNA, (24 Julai) — Malaysia dibawah pimpinan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berusaha bersungguh-sungguh untuk menjaga kedaulatan negara daripada dicerobohi penjenayah rentas sempadan, kata Pengerusi Yayasan Kebajikan Sosial Tan Sri Robert Phang.

Oleh itu, katanya rakyat negara ini seharusnya menghargai usaha dan menyokong pelbagai langkah yang dilakukan kerajaan bagi memperkukuhkan lagi keselamatan khususnya di Zon Selamat Timur Sabah (ESSZOne).

“Kerajaan telah melakukan tindakan bijak dengan menstruktur ESSCom (Kawasan Keselamatan Khas Pantai Timur Sabah) dengan melantik pegawai berkebolehan dan berpengalaman luas untuk menjaga keselamatan perairan negeri ini daripada dicerobohi.

“Kita rakyat mesti menyokong usaha ini dengan memberikan maklumat bagi membantu kerajaan mengekang jenayah penculikan (untuk wang tebusan),” katanya selepas menyampaikan sumbangan sebanyak RM20,000 kepada balu anggota polis Marin Koperal Ab Rajah Jamuan, Salamah Ahmad pada majlis berbuka puasa anjuran yayasan itu dan ESSCom, di sini, malam tadi.

Pada 12 Julai lepas, Ab Rajah, 32, mati ditembak kumpulan lelaki yang berpakaian hitam, seluar celoreng dan bersenjata berat ketika mangsa sedang meronda di sebuah Resort, Pulau Mabul bersama rakan setugas Konstabel Zakiah Aleip, 26, yang kemudian diculik ke perairan negara jiran.

Dalam hal ini, Robert menyeru syarikat korporat supaya tampil membantu
keluarga yang memerlukan bantuan bagi meringankan beban dan penderitaan mereka.

Beliau turut menyatakan kebimbangannya terhadap penglibatan “orang dalam”
yang mempermudahkan penjenayah melakukan jenayah termasuk penculikan dengan
memberikan maklumat pergerakan pasukan keselamatan.

Turut hadir, Pengarah Bahagian Perisikan Keselamatan ESSCom DCP Datuk Ahmad
Nadzer, Pegawai Daerah Semporna Dr Chaco Bullah dan Komander Pasukan Gerakan
Marin ESSCom SAC Abdul Manaf Othman.

Widow of slain cop in Mabul gets RM20,000

Salamah Ahmad, the widow of marine police Corporal Abdul Rajah Jamuan who was killed at the recent Mabul island ambush, received RM20,000 aid from the Social Care Foundation.

Social Care Foundation chairperson Robert Phang handed the contribution to Salamah at a break-fast function organised jointly by the foundation and the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone) last night.

On July 12, Abd Rajah, 32, was killed in an exchange of fire with eight gunmen, believed to be from Southern Philippines, at the Mabul Water Bungalows Resort on Pulau Mabul, off Semporna while his colleague, Zakiah Aleip, 26, was kidnapped.

Robert Phang also urged other corporate bodies to come forward and assist families that need assistance.

He also expressed concern with the presence of 'insiders' or informers who provide information of the security forces to the intruders.

"The government is working hard to ensure the safety of the country, so we as the people of the country must also play a role in assisting the government's efforts.

"We also welcome Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's initiative to restructure the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom)."

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR PRIME MINISTER YAB DATO’ SERI NAJIB TUN RAZAK

Hail, YAB Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, you are a great Malaysian Prime Minister and Statesman.

Following the missing MH370 plus the recent MH17 tragedy, the whole world has witnessed that YAB is very rational, strong and decisive in what subsequent action to be taken.

It is now an open fact, that even our PAKATAN, the opposition party, has strongly expressed the support solidly behind YAB’s leadership and commitment. Undoubtedly, Malaysians overall have been convinced that YAB is truly a great leader of all Malaysians. Very voluntarily all Malaysians will come forward to establish the only absolute solidarity and support needed in this hour of crisis.

In view of these painful tragedies, I boldly suggest that we should down play whatever celebration for this coming Hari Raya Aidil Fitri in time to come. Although this is a great celebration for all Muslims, at the same time, the feelings of the bereaved families of those who have lost their loved ones in the MH370 plus MH17 tragedies must be taken into consideration. We have to be very sympathetic and understanding towards their feelings.


YAB is truly the great leader of Malaysia. Let us all, unite solidly to establish our support to YAB and your Government. God Bless YAB and Malaysia.

Tan Sri Datuk Robert Phang Miow Sin.
Justice of the Peace.

“WAKE UP FELLOW MALAYSIANS – TIME TO SHOW YOUR MANDATORY PATRIOTISM!!!”

17TH July 2014.
PRESS STATEMENT BY:-
TAN SRI DATUK ROBERT PHANG MIOW SIN
JUSTICE OF PEACE.
CHAIRMAN – SOCIAL CARE FOUNDATION



I received a sms from Sabah which says, “TIKUS MATI DISEBERANG LAUT MEREKA NAMPAK, TAPI GAJAH DIDEPAN MATA TAK NAMPAK” and “ ANAK KERA DIHUTAN DISUSUKAN TAPI ANAK DIRUMAH DIBIARKAN” in short, highlights the plight and concern of Sabahans. Brothers/Sisters, do not worry. All of us will act and support during this hour of uncertainty.

Ever since MH370 mystery, Malaysia has been under a series of bad spells. The Government of Malaysia not only has pledged but assured the Rakyat of continuous efforts to solve this mystery.

The repeated series of kidnappings cases in Sabah since the intrusion of Lahad Datu resulted in the deaths of nine (9), including the recent case and two (2) army personals. I have on the 19th of June 2014, issued a press statement highlight the kidnapping cases in Sabah – the situation is very serious and alarming.

As a result of it, the Government took immediate action to revamp and restructure ESSCOM strength and machinery. In view of the repeated intrusions into our territory, it is now clear this is a series of deliberate act of challenging our sovereignty plus our capabilities of addressing them and the protection or our citizens in the affected territory/our country.

This is the time that all Malaysians must do away with all differences in political belief, political struggle and also individual practices. We must pull and unite ourselves together in becoming a solidarity force not only to face the intruders but to engage head on with them. This can only be made possible with absolute united support from Malaysians.

Today the guerilla warfare attacks on Sabah, is just the tip of the iceberg. Moving forward and immediately, all Malaysian must be vigilante and more so our brothers and sisters who reside on the East Coast of Sabah. It is of paramount importance for us to interact with our neighbourhoods within Malaysia and also our neighbouring countries. Interact with them seriously and try to gain intelligence is a must, in order to gain an upper hand on the intruders.

Remember Sir, information is power. We must throw in our utmost support to YAB PM, YB Dato’ Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid - Ministry of Home Affairs, PDRM as well as the Armed Forces at all cost. We must wake up and make no more mistakes otherwise our country will face a serious threat within and beyond. I call upon all our fellow Malaysians – corporate sectors to show their solidarity support towards the Government in all their efforts and determination in combating the common enemy and protecting us.

To all our Sabah brothers and sisters, do not be afraid or down hearted, the sentiments of our fellow Malaysia, we are always with you.

“HUMBLENESS IS GOOD VIRTUE, ARROGANCE SHALL FALL, THE MEEK WILL RULE THE WORLD”.

翁詩杰,摸摸你的良心!请還原真相!

對於翁詩杰,我心中無愧,一直以來,我都毫無條件的支持他,從他第一次参選总会长至去年杪的馬華黨選,即使在他形勢最弱時,我依然還在他身邊。
2010年的馬華的特大,我以实际行动,登全版的报纸,星洲, 中国报,南洋,呼吁所有的中央代表投他一票,我还以“好苹果,坏苹果”来比喻他和当时的蔡细历。
虽然当时我对他的認識不深,但已是毫无条件的支持他,因为我很欣赏他敢怒敢言的作风。一路以来,不论大選,黨選,还是改選,我对他的支持没有改变过。我的不離不棄是因為我一直欣賞他是“有原則的人”,只是,夀宴的事件讓我很心寒。雖然之前也有很多人提醒我,翁詩杰是個無情無義的偽君子,只是我並沒有相信,但现在我信了
翁詩杰和我的这场小风波让不少的网友误解我,说我小气,甚至有人用过激的言语,批评我,辱骂我,我能理解,是因为他们不明白真相,我把这件事情讲出来,只是想提醒大家,不要再被蒙蔽,不要再有人像我一样傻傻地上当,你把他当真心朋友,他却视你如粪土。
一些網友以為我得不到好處,才對他展開攻擊。親愛的網友们,爲何不去问问翁詩杰我到底有没有从他那里拿到一分钱的好处。我相信我是一個合理的人,不會無理攻擊任何人,即使他在擔任總會長和部長如日中天時,我並沒有在他身邊兜轉尋求利益,反而是在他備受蔡派圍攻時,我才出現在他身邊。
在去年杪的馬華黨選,雖然他當時最不受看好,我依然不離不棄,他也撥了多通電話,邀我出席他的造勢記者會,我也出席了。
在这里我想说的是,若翁詩杰是真君子,把我当作真心朋友的话,在得知我对他有不满,有误解的时候,是不是应该第一时间致电给我,询问详情,把事情解释清楚?
这是做人最基本的处世之道,他饱读诗书,不应该不明白其中的道理,可是我们来看看我们的“真君子”都做了些什么,公开一封我从来没有收到的短信,而且还泄露了我的電話號碼,侵犯我的隱私,為我製造不必要的麻煩,同时他还用宗教來攻击我,说我会面对基督的审判,这是非常荒謬的,更是无耻的行为,此事只是個人交情問題,跟宗教何關,不應該什麼事都牽扯到個人宗教信仰,用来转移话题。
翁詩杰在面子书上,保留的都是区区那几个支持他的评论,那些质疑他,批评他的评论全部都被他删除了。
我要強調的是,邏輯上,如果我有收到他的短信,我没有理由这样无理取闹,惹事生非。更何況,我們在5月28日通電話時,如果他無法出席的話,應該早就通知一声,這樣一來,我就不會在30日再撥電向他確認是否出席我夀宴。
也有网友安慰我说,既然知道了他的爲人,就不必再和他计较,不必再理会他!真的很谢谢这样的网友,的确,我现在清楚了他的为人,而且,经过这一次我也很庆幸我看清了他的真面目,真是謝天謝地!
至于我和翁詩杰到底是谁亏欠谁,想必翁詩杰的心中有数,多说无益,我要以此文作一個總結,讓事實説話,但求無愧於心。

我非小氣,為正氣揭真相


我非小氣,為正氣揭真相
自從我發佈了批評丹斯里翁詩杰無情無義的聲明後,不知情者以為我小氣,但我自認是憑借一股正氣揭穿虛偽的真面目,與小氣無關。
我也明白此事多少會對我的聲譽構成一些負面的影響,但我毅然這樣做,是希望以長輩的身份,讓他反省做人的道理,這也是我一路來的作風。
翁詩杰眾叛親離之後,我依然毫無條件的在他身邊支持他,在去年杪的黨選,他競選總會長時,我也一直陪同和支持他,包括協助他拜票。
我的不離不棄是因為我一直欣賞他是有原則的人,只是,夀宴的事件讓我看清他的為人,他不聞不問的態度令我大跌眼鏡。
很多人都知道,我公認對他好,但最終卻是熱險去貼冷屁股。
雖然之前也有很多人提醒我,翁詩杰是無情無義的偽君子,只是我並沒有相信,我欣慰在我75歲的夀宴讓我看清他的真面目。
針對網民詢問我曾经捐献过200万给翁诗杰所控制的基金会购买救护车及义诊基金的事,我慎重聲明,我從沒有捐過這筆錢。
真的假不了,假的真不了!我 不懂這項消息來自何方,網民要了解實情,大可向翁詩杰查証。
我也認為翁詩杰不應該把我的電話號碼公開,侵犯我的隱私,為我製造不必要的麻煩。
他把宗教扯進來也是非常荒謬的,此事只是個人交情問題,跟宗教何關,不應該什麼事都牽扯到個人宗教信仰,變成一個課題。
針對翁詩杰說他在529日有發短訊恭賀我和說明無法出席夀宴的原因,我要說明,我確實沒有收到短訊,認識我的人都知道我絕不無中生有,也沒必要無理取鬧。
我重視兩人的友情,才兩次撥電給他邀請出席夀宴,最後一次是生日前一天即530日撥出,他當時說他正在做物理治療,過後才回電,但一直都沒有下文。
他說他出國會帶給我賀禮,從他受封後至新聞見報,他都不曾撥電來,更勿論送賀禮。
解鈴人還是繫鈴人,如果翁詩杰能夠出示他出國的証明,我就非常感恩他的說明。
我會繼續為他禱告!

Double Happiness speeches by Tan Sri Robert Phang’s son & daughter.

Recently, I celebrated my 75th Birthday celebration together with my daughter’s graduation as Medical Doctor, themed  “DOUBLE HAPPINESS”  with close friends and relatives on 31st of May 2014. My youngest son spoke on behalf of my family to welcome the distinguished guests and friends. I now release my son’s and daughter, Dr. Phang’s speech. Thank you. God Bless.

Benjamin Phang’s Speech

Ladies and Gentlemen, Tunku Aziz, Tan Sris, Puan Sris, Datuks, Datins and fellow friends.

It is without a doubt, my absolute delight to welcome all of you to tonight’s joyous occasion, my
father’s 75th Birthday.

5 years ago, today, you would have seen me on the stage, cracking jokes after jokes. However today, that will not be the case, as I feel that we have something much more distinguished to celebrate.

Those of you who were present for my father’s 70th Birthday would have seen the brilliant slideshow put together, highlighting the significant moments in his life which has made him the man he is today.

I won’t be going through it in much detail, although I do feel the need to reiterate certain points more extensively.

My father did not have the most privileged of childhoods. Shortly after birth, his father passed
away, leaving his mother to care for him and his two sisters.

Times were tough and his mother struggled to make ends meet, he still lacked the financial means of receiving an education and sometimes even basic nutrition and healthcare.

Despite the hardship and circumstances placed upon him from birth, it did not deter his will to
have a good life and to be able to provide unconditionally for his loved ones.

In fact, the experiences that he was subjected to, has cultivated in him a sense of unparalleled generosity and compassion for the less fortunate, which I am sure is how most of you have come to know him today.

My father has definitely provided my siblings and I, a fortunate life. However, rising above the
occasion, is my sister, Frances.

At a tender age, she was off living by herself in a foreign country and despite my father not being around all the time to give her moral support of advice, she found her own way and excelled in her chose fiend.

And just earlier this month, she graduated from the University of Nebraska Lind with the title MD.

My sister is the pride and embodiment of what the Phang family stands for today and is testimony of my father’s years of providing. Words alone cannot describe the elation we feel for her.

Tonight’s theme is Double Happiness, apart from celebrating my father’s milestone of making it through the third quarter of life, we would also like to celebrate my sister achieving her life-long dream of becoming a Doctor.

Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado, my sister, Dr. Frances Phang MD.


Dr.Frances Phang’s speech

Hello all distinguished guests, relatives, family and friends—thank you for joining us on this special occasion. As Ben mentioned earlier, I recently fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a doctor. I will be specializing in General Surgery with an eventual focus on breast oncology.

With the addition of “M.D.” behind my name comes additional responsibilities, one of them is the saying “Do no harm”, so in accordance with that—I will keep my speech nice and short so that you may continue to enjoy your dinner.

There are two things that I’d like to address in my speech. First of all, my excitement about officially entering the medical profession.

Every birthday wish since I could remember was to become a doctor, and now that it has materialized—I can share it freely with everyone.

The last four years of medical school was tough, tougher than I’d ever imagined but it was also the best four years. I was involved in something I loved—I saw patients in clinic, diagnosed them and subsequently applied what I learned, therefor reinforcing my knowledge.

I had excellent doctors as teachers, imparting to me their own nuances in practicing medicine. And along the way, I made great friends—friends that will be around for decades to come.

Looking back, it has truly been the best four years and I have so much more to look forward to—starting residency and learning how to practice independently as a budding surgeon.

Of course, none of this would’ve been possible without the influence of my father. He has served as such an important role model to me.

As you all are well aware, giving back to the needy is something my father is very passionate about.

It will be such an honor and privilege to give back to our society through the means of medicine. I only hope that I will be able to accomplish a fraction of what my father has done throughout my career.

You’re truly an inspiration, Pa—let’s give him a hand.

Secondly, I’d like to give thanks to my father for his love and support throughout the years. He has supported me wholeheartedly every step of my education. He told me that as long as I wanted to further my studies, he will provide.

My father provided so well that all I had to do was focus on studying and nothing else—not many of my classmates can say the same. I am truly a very blessed child to have him as my father.

With that said, I’d like to give a toast to my father. You have provided for and taken such good care of me and I will work hard to continue your legacy in social work as a doctor.
Thank you, Pa and Happy Birthday.
