Kebun Bunga is a state constituency in
Penang, Malaysia. It covers the Pepper
Estate, Fettes Park, Mount Erskine,
Hong Seng Estate, Waterfall Road,
Penang Botanic Gardens, Quarry
Drive, Jesselton, Western Garden,
Batu Gantung, Race Course and
Padang Tembak.

Kebun Bunga consist of largely


residential areas, the nature, parks and
cemeteries. It is a mixed constituency
with the affluent community, the
middle-class and the poor living in the
area. The community is also facing the
reality of an ageing society in Kebun
Bunga.Younger people have opted to
move out from residential areas
including Padang Tembak flats, Hong
Seng Estate and Pepper Estate.

By working together, we must


upgrade the public infrastructure to
make convenience for the ageing
society without neglecting the
younger generations; protect the
greens with sustainable development
plans and making a better place to live
in.

With the collaboration of the people


of Kebun Bunga, I am confident we
are able to work towards an
improved community and bringing
great ideas to the state of Penang.

The typical politics is too focused in eliminating


each other.

Politicians are too busy finding and criticising


each other’s weaknesses.

Politicians are too busy arguing with each other


just because they are the opponent.

Politicians are too busy focusing on the


negatives, rather than the positives.

Politicians are too busy making fun of each other.

Changing a government is not a solution


anymore. It is changing the political culture that
is needed.

Brothers and sisters, now is not the time for the


same old politics anymore. It is not about
toppling any figure or political party. It is about
challenging the status quo.

We need to advocate for positive politics;


whereby we focus on solving issues and making
a better place to live in.
