“Initial investigations revealed the driver dropped off the suspect (known as Sei Ngan Chai) at Jalan Yap Ah Loy after picking him up near the temple...he claimed the suspect was his regular passenger,” he said, adding that the arrest would shed more light into the case.
SAC Ku clarified that police believed one suspect was responsible for the murder, contrary to initial reports of three suspects.“Witnesses claimed three suspects were waiting for Hussain. “So far our investigations pointed at one suspect but we will explore all possibility,” he said. He added police believe the murder weapon used was 9mm automatic pistol, based on the bullets recovered from the deceased. SAC Ku said police had also recorded the statement of the man, whom Hussain met at the temple for a land deal. “We are leaving no stones unturned in the investigation,” he said.

The Arab Malaysian Banking Group founder was shot dead in Lorong Ceylon here on Monday. Cheong, who was with him, was also shot on her arm and leg.
Hussain’s body has been laid to rest at the Bukit Kiara Muslim cemetery on Tuesday.

The band has a wide repertoire as they can perform R&B and Rock songs from yesteryear's to the latest top hits. The band has been around for quite a while now, while they have a had a couple of singers/band members come and go, band leader Sham has made sure that the quality of the band only keeps getting better. The band is very disciplined, the soft spoken Sham usually does not tolerate any nonsense and acts like a big brother to all his members.

ExpatGoMalaysia has said that Skyhigh is known to play with Passion, Energy and Soul!. A friend recently commented if Skyhigh was an all Caucasian band they would be one of the best bands in the world today. International chains like Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock Cafe have had them play at their outlets.  

Skyhigh performing "Give Me A Reason" It's even better than the original version!

Hafiez is the natural ladies man with his long flowing locks and great voice. He has a great personality and does a great job engaging the audience. His humble demeanour makes him a favourite with both the guys and gals.

Natasha must be the sexiest creature on stage in KL, with a waistline and abs to die for, she captivates girls and guys alike the moment they set eyes on the way she moves on stage. She has even perfected her signature move or "gelek", that makes everyone go crazy. Her "Gelek' can be seen in the "Blurred lines" Video clip above. She has one of the best voices in Malaysia, so much so that she could easily win the Malaysian Idol or Voice or Malaysia's Got Talent, if there was a show like that here. A friend of mine said if he was a Chinese Emperor he would lock her up in a cage just to sing for him everyday!. Her sexy and powerful rendition of All My People by Sasha Lopez could even make the dead to move to the beat!  

Natasha the Sexy "gelek "Queen

Renee is one of the newest member of the band, she will shock you when she sings, as she does it so effortlessly. I kept wondering how she does it, as she barely strained a muscle to hit the high notes. She has a powerful voice and delivers her songs effortlessly hitting all the high notes with ease. Don't be fooled be her petite demeanour. She is one of the best singers I have come across in recent time.

MyWatch President Sanjeevan Shot by Underworld? now at Serdang Hospital

UPDATE JULY 30, 2013

Chairman of the anti-crime watchdog, MyWatch R Sri Sanjeevan is being transferred to Serdang hospital in Selangor shortly today.

He, who was transferred to Tuanku Jaafar hospital here on Saturday midnight was reportedly in a worsened condition compared to yesterday.
Sanjeevan's father P Ramakrishnan, 64, said he was informed that Sanjeevan developed fever today and would be sent to Serdang hospital to remove the bullet in his right rib.
Arrangements are being made at press time for the transfer.
MyWatch advisor S. Gobi Krishnan said police have been deployed to ensure Sanjeevan's security at the Serdang hospital upon his arrival.
Meanwhile, Bernama reported that the inspector-general of police has appealed to the various quarters to cease speculation on the murder attempt on anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan who was shot in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan last Saturday.
Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the action of some non-governmental organisations and politicians who posted baseless accusations linking the police with the shooting incident, via the social network, would only worsen the situation.
"We are always monitoring such postings which cast aspersions on the police as being linked to the murder attempt.
"Do not accuse the police in this manner, and poison the minds of the public to hate the force.
"(On our part) We never protect our policemen. Let us complete our investigations and we will reveal our findings," he told a press conference at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman here today, after handing over 5,400 packages of 'kuih raya' to police officers and rank-and-file who will be on duty during the coming Aidilfitri celebrations.
It was reported earlier that MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan who is hospitalised here after he was shot on Saturday is expected to be transferred to Serdang Hospital later today.
A Seremban Hospital spokesman said the surgery to remove the bullet in his right rib is expected to be carried out there.
Earlier, as speculation mounts over the attempted murder of MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan, police yesterday pledged to conduct a thorough investigation into the case.
Having set up a task force, led by Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Hadi Ho Abdullah, to investigate the shooting, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the police would also look into allegations of policemen having links with the underworld, as claimed by Sanjeevan.
Investigators from the Negri Sembilan police headquarters will assist Hadi.
From preliminary investigations, police believe the shooting was about revenge and did not rule out the involvement of the underworld.
Negri Sembilan police chief Datuk Osman Salleh said police had recorded the statement of a 35-year-old man seated next to Sanjeevan when the activist was shot by two unidentified assailants, at an intersection in Taman Cempaka, in Bahau, near here at 3.40pm on Saturday.
Without linking it to the shooting, Osman said the man whom Sanjeevan had just picked up from his home in his silver BMW for a drink, was wanted by police (since early this year) for a drug-related offence. He was arrested at 12.30am, when he came to the Bahau police station to lodge a report on the shooting.
Sanjeevan, 29, who was behind the wheel, was shot at close range when he stopped at the junction in Taman Cempaka. His assailants, who were on a red Yamaha LC motorcycle, rode up next to him before the pillion rider shot Sanjeevan, who had wound down his window for a smoke.
Osman said the bullet, which hit Sanjeevan's right elbow, penetrated the right arm and hit the rib. The other man in the car was unhurt in the incident.
The pillion rider then alighted from the motorcycle, but Sanjeevan, despite his injuries managed to speed off before pulling over some 300m away for the other man to take over.
Asked about the death threat Sanjeevan said he had received, as posted on his Twitter account some 12 hours before the incident, Osman said police did not receive any reports on it.
Sanjeevan had tweeted: "A @PDRMsia cop told some syndicate fellow that he'll get them firearm & told them to fire few shots at my house to scare me/family!"
He had also claimed that the gunmen were recruited to threaten his family and him for exposing a crime syndicate linked to police personnel.
Osman, however, confirmed that there was a report by Sanjeevan against three policemen whom he claimed had threatened him following a report he made on gambling at a premises in Jelebu, Negri Sembilan, in February.
Khalid promised that investigations would cover all aspects.
"I wish Sanjeevan a quick recovery to assist us in our investigations @PDRMsia," Khalid tweeted.
It was also reported in January that Sanjeevan had claimed that he received a death threat but brushed it off as he considered it to be part of the risk that came with his role as an anti-crime activist.
Sanjeevan had then claimed that someone called him from an unknown number, warning him to watch his back as he had "stepped on too many toes".
Osman called for a stop to speculation, saying that investigations were ongoing.
On Sanjeevan's condition, Osman said he was being treated at the intensive care unit of Tuanku Jaafar Hospital here and was reported to be stable.
"He is slated to undergo an operation to take out the bullet today (yesterday)," he said, adding that police personnel had been deployed keep watch over Sanjeevan.
Osman also urged witnesses to come forward to assist in investigations.

SEREMBAN, July 28 (Bernama) -- The attempted murder on the anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chairman in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan yesterday, may have been the work of the underworld bent on exacting revenge.

The police have not ruled this out as R. Sri Sanjeevan, 29, had previously, alerted the police on illegal gambling activities in the state, especially in Jelebu and Jempol.

As a result, he had received death threats and reported the matter to the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman, among others.

State police chief Datuk Osman Salleh said the police were looking into several motives to facilitate investigations into the attempted murder on Sri Sanjeevan in Taman Chempaka about 4.30pm.

He said the police had also recorded a statement from Sri Sanjeevan's friend who was with him when a gunman and his accomplice made an attempt on the life of the MyWatch chairman.

In the incident, Sri Sanjeevan was driving his silver BMW, with the friend in tow, when he decided to wind down the driver's window for a puff at Taman Awana Indah.

At that juncture, two men on a red Yamaha LC motorcycle and wearing full-faced crash helmets, drew alongside the car before the pillion rider shot the victim in the right side of the abdomen at close range.

Osman said Sri Sanjeevan was warded at the Jempol Hospital before he was transferred to the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital where his condition was described as critical but stable.

He said the victim would undergo surgery to remove the slug from his abdomen later today, adding that he was given round-the-clock police protection at the hospital.

Meanwhile, a special task force has been set up to investigate the attemtped murder. It is headed by Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Hadi Ho Abdullah. Former inspector-general of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan is the patron of MyWatch.

Meanwhile, Osman said Sri Sanjeevan's friend who was with him at the time of the shooting incident, was detained to facilitate investigations into a drug-related offence which he allegedly committed, about a year ago.



*MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan was planning to expose the links between illegal drug syndicates and the police, and this is why he was shot, claims PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli
Rafizi, who is the Pandan MP, said that Sanjeevan had intended to make an internal police memo with a confidential listing of police personnel under investigation available to the public sometime time this week and sought his assistance in the matter.
"He mentioned that he had in his possession an internal police memo stamped confidential which listed police personnel under investigations for their links to the underworld drug syndicates.
"I was reluctant to get involved as the matter was pending investigations and I did not want to prematurely prejudice those under probe," he told reporters  at a press conference today.
He added that Sanjeevan kept impressing upon him the extensive involvement of some police personnel with the syndicates and the large amount of drugs related to the cases under probe.
He said Sanjeevan revealed the existence of the internal police memo to him at a buka puasa gathering held at Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's house in Segambut on Friday night.
"He wanted to go public with the list this week and I believe he would have done so, irrespective if done with my assistance or not," he said, adding that his conversation with Sanjeevan lasted about 20 minutes.
Asked if he has seen the list and was fearful for his own safety, Rafizi said it was fortunate that he had not seen the list.
However, he believed that Sanjeevan would have made several copies of the list as a precautionary measure if anything untoward happened to him.
Meanwhile, Anwar urged the police to beef up security at the hospital where Sanjeevan was being treated owing to the high profile nature of the case.
He also said that the special team set up to investigate the case should not include any police personnel that may be remotely connected to those under internal probe.
Sanjeevan, 29, who was driving a silver BMW, with a friend in the passenger seat, had stopped at a traffic light at Taman Awana Indah in Bahau at 4.30pm on Saturday.
They were on their way to have a drink when two men on a red motorcycle approached them. The pillion rider fired at Sanjeevan, hitting him on the right side of his ribs.
The pillion rider got off the motorcycle but Sanjeevan managed to speed off. The suspects then escaped in the opposite direction, heading for Rompin.
After driving for about 300m, Sanjeevan's friend managed to stop the car, moved him to the rear seat and drove him to the Jempol Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
He was transferred to the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital at 1.30am, where he is now under tight police security.
Incidentally, his friend was later arrested for a drug-related case after his statement was recorded at the Bahau police station.
Sanjeevan, who has been in the news for exposing corruption in the police force, has received death threats in the past.

Ramadhan Buffet Buka Puasa Review 2013 @ Seri Pacific Hotel, KL - RM50.00

The best buka puasa deal at a 5 Star Hotel, which is the best value for money, is at the Seri Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

While the buffet at the Grand Ballroom is priced at RM98.00 nett, the Management of the Seri Pacific Kuala Lumpur have priced the buffet at the coffee house Zende at RM50.00 nett. They have done this to cater for the Muslims who do not want to break their fast with a huge spread such as the Citarasa Kampung Feast  they have set up at the Grand Ballroom.
Citarasa Kampung Buka Puasa  Buffet @ Seri Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur
However  don't be fooled as the spread at Zende is pretty decent. I am told other than having less choices that the buffet at the Grand Ballroom, the one main difference is that the spread in Zende does not include the famous whole lamb and many live cooking stations.

The Chefs at the Seri Pacific are pretty good and the buffets there has been consistently delicious, you will not be disappointed.

The fact is Muslims are supposed to break their fast with a few dates and sips of water, its only after doing their Maghrib prayers are Muslims encouraged to eat their dinner which rightfully should be the same portion that they would eat their normal daily dinner.

Whatever the way you may choose to break your fast, is your personal preference, the Seri Pacific simply gives you options to choose from, something no other hotel in Kuala Lumpur does.

Zende Restaurant

Best FB @ KL highly recommends Seri Pacific Kuala Lumpur. During the last week of Ramadan make your choice and head for the Citarasa Kampung Buka Puasa grand Buka Puasa feast at the Grand Ballroom priced at RM98.00 (14 July - 3 August ) and RM 80.00 (4 August- 6 August) or choose the coffee house ambiance buka puasa spread at RM 50.00 nett.

We have been informed they are almost sold out if not sold out on most days. So it will be best to call the hotel reservations to enquire on seat availability: 03-4049 4428
