Sekinchan's 31Billion Dollar Man

When DAP’s Sekinchan assemblyman Ng Suee Lim accused Selangor's former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo of having spent an estimated RM24mil on a palatial home in Section 7 Shah Alam the other day, it was the word Sekinchan which rang a bell. Sekinchan is a small town in Selangor, Malaysia and is one of the major rice producing areas of Malaysia. Unofficially, an acquaintance of mine claimed, the little town had in fact, surpassed Kedah, the official rice bowl of Malaysia, in producing the most amount of rice in the country. My room mate and university mate when I was staying in Section 17, Petaling Jaya was from Sekinchan too and boy, wasn't that eons ago! Today, as I browsed through my e-mails, there among the forwarded messages was news on one of the brightest sons that have come from that little town - Pua Kien Seng, a former student of a Chinese primary school SJKC Yeok Kuan and Pin Hua Independent school. This son of Sekinchan had later pursued an engineering course in Chiao Tung University in Taiwan and had since been putting up base there as the President of Phison Electronics Corps. The guy was reportedly the inventor of the world's first USB removable disk or what most of us called the pen drive. And that had earned Taiwan 31 billion dollars! So, who need Lee Major aka the 6 million dollar man, I wonder...

Greetings,

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Please contact me back at bhawthorne@maacenter.org

Bill
