Yet Another Fire In Batu Kawa
Batu Kawa seems to have more than its fair share of floods and fires. Last Sunday another family at Lorong 22 Desa Wira saw their wooden house razed to the ground, losing all their possessions including their preparations for the Gawai festival forthcomoing in two weeks' time. It will be a bleak Gawai for this Iban family of two generations who have made their home here for the last 20 odd years.
Me, Mesah Suhaili and Suhaizal Amin paid a visit to convey sympathies and gave a small donation to the stricken family.
When I told the ladies in the house that we are from Parti Keadilan Rakyat, it registered blank. We also learned that the daughter and son-in-law are not registered as voters.
The ladies made us very welcome and were very happy to pose with me infront of the rubble.
