Only after the last tree has been cut down;
Only after the last fish has been caught;
Only after the last river has been poisoned;
Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten.

Penang State Parks

By Forest Ang

...... :) we got State Parks in Penang now!....

penang state park

Today, I read in the paper, that Bukit Panchor and Pulau Jerejak are now designated as state parks.

Ten years ago, I would be jumping with joy when Bukit Panchor and Pulau Jerejak were declared as state parks. Not today, not now!

The declaration spells more developments - just like moving city into the jungle! More developments meant more trees to cut, more infrastructures, more timber to use, more people will be visiting them, more buildings, more 10% corrupt stories and more wastages!

Please don't get me wrong. I have not indicated that I am against the declaration of state parks. I am only giving my opinion that in this Bolehland, "everything also can!" They said, "Build as you please". Contractors 'F' will be laughing to their banks. I am not against them for making money but the management of these natural resources will be to "build as you please"! "We just want state parks, just like other states"! "We will do anything for 10 %"! "After all we got the budget"!

And the story goes.....

Bolehland : Now we have state parks!

Contractors : Yes, now I can help build infrastructures at state parks to attract visitors.

Bolehland : Yes, you can build more roads into the forests so that those cannot walk can also visit the forests. You should build bigger information and interpretive buildings. And don't forget to build 5-stars toilets....nevermind about maintenance...build first, that one can "belakang kira"! And don't "BOCOR lagi"....if not Semi Value will give another multi million bill for repairs again! (Meanwhile thinking about how many % out of those contracts)

Contractors : Ok boss, don't worry about the 10 percent....I will "Kau tim"

Taxpayers: (stratching heads....now we have to pay more taxes)

Are you happy that Penang finally got her state parks?

As for me, I am very happy...but with reservation! You?

Let's wait and see the consequences of having state parks vs recreational forests!
