MORE than 300 people were treated to a scrumptious buffet luncheon organised by the Village Community Management Council (MPKK) of Taman Lalulintas in George Town, Penang.

To add to the lively atmosphere, there was also a lion dance performance for the children and adults who attended the Chinese New Year open house in Lebuhraya Bodhi recently.

Among the guests were residents from Happy Penang Buddhist Association Senior Citizens’ Home, Cheshire Home as well as students from Penang Welfare Association for Mentally Retarded Children.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, who was the guest of honour, said the event also gave the residents a chance to meet their leaders and elected representative.

“The MPKK assists the local council in addressing any issues faced by the community,” he said in his opening speech.

Later, Chow and other VIPs distributed mandarin oranges and ang pows to the guests.

Also present were Komtar assemblyman Teh Lai Heng, MPKK Taman Lalulintas chairman Ong Lin Teong and secretary Alan Lim Wei Lun, councillors Wong Yuee Harng and Gerald Mak Mun Keong.

Teh said the state government had made several contributions for the benefit of the residents in the area such as the introduction of the Congestion Alleviation Transport (CAT) free bus service.

“The CAT bus stops at the Anson Road market, the Penang Buddhist Association and the Salvation Army premises,” he said.

He added that the upgrading works for the Anson Road market would be done in phases by early next year following problems in relocating some of the traders.

Teh also said the road in Taman Lalulintas would be resurfaced this year.
