Putatan Platinum Height Apartment Update

I feel cheated. Last year I bought an apartment in Putatan so called Putatan Platinum Height which is under SPNB. I'm very new in buying properties but the developer keep giving me good promise. I'm not expecting luxurious or maybe lots of bonus or present when I buy the house but I just need a time track on what's going on. They did gave me the time track on this project. It goes like this.

The project will be completed this year around feb and maybe the key will be given by May 2012. That's the intitial time plan that they gave to me. I did bought it, arrange a loan, sacrifice my saving just to get the house which is a good investment also.

Later, word is just a word. On May 2012 I ask the developer when the house will be completed. Even our Prime minister have to answer this question as maybe the developer already know what they did wrong. Not from the developer the answer came from our prime minister Dato' Seri Najib when he visited Sabah earlier this year that the house will be completed by August 2012. It was promising.

Now its already august 2012. I had a phone call from bank asking for my money. Later I got phone call from the developer also asking the same thing mentioning that if give them the money late then the interest will go up day by day.

I asked them when the house will be completed? Simple answer, by end of this year but maybe I will get the key and maybe able to move in by mid year next year!

I felt cheated. You know if u ask someone to go out and she said maybe this sunday. And the sunday you ask again and she said maybe next week. And the next week you ask again and she said next month. Its the same simple principle. And it does not exclude situation like this one.

For the first time property buyer, I learn a good lesson. Never deal with goverment property project. That's it. But this is bad, I'm supposed to support the goverment project that so called try to help the citizen. What happen here is the other way around. They are not much helping me, and I have this mentality of not supporting them anymore.

I don't know which channel do I go to get my right on. To get the justice, to remove this feeling of being cheat. I don't mind paying cause that's it normal thing if you buy something. But if you buy something and you get it 1 and a half year later, its different. If thay already told me that the house will be completed in 2013 then I will prepare myself. But they promise me it will be completed in 2012!

I believe there is a lot of buyer who felt the same thing with me. Anyone know how to get this issue straight?

  1. Came across yr blog when searching for Putatan Platinum. Last May we went there to collect the key and we were told by Kinsadana (developer) that we cant take it yet as our the gov loan havent paid a cent to them yet. Thats fine,and we proceed to pay the untilities bill anyway without taking thebkey. but when we follow up with the lawyer last June, they said the developer was paid on mid June. So we called the developer and they informed we can take the key already but we have to pay late charges for 14k++!!. Seems like many of the buyers were facing the same problem too especially those with gov loan and it was even in the newspaper. Now we are trying to ask the developer to waive the late charges, some are going to hse tribunal. Gosh, it's a nightmare!!!

  2. It was the same to me. After a long wait, suddenly the developer call and inform me that i have to pay rm 6k for late payment. Now i am still waiting for the developer to waive the fee.

  3. We are also making a letter asking for the late charges to be waived. But the least they can gv is 20% discount. There's an FB group made by the residents so a lot of info & ideas u can get there. One owner said she managed to get the bank to pay the interest after explaining to the bank.

  4. I face the same situation...I sent an appeal letter requesting developer to waive the unnecessary penalty but no good news yet! Lets do the best to fight for our rights! I feel that we r the victims of un efficient process!

  5. I face the same situation...I sent an appeal letter requesting developer to waive the unnecessary penalty but no good news yet! Lets do the best to fight for our rights! I feel that we r the victims of un efficient process!

  6. Im waiting reply from bank regarding the matter.

  7. Hi y'all. For those who bought the apartment using government loan, I hate to break it to all of you but, even with an official letter from the government TELLING the developer to not charge us, the developer will refuse to do what they are told. Happened to me. You can read about my ordeal here:

    Mind you, I swear a lot. We are living in a corrupted nation, and we become the victims. Stay strong fellow future neighbours. Moral of the story is, never buy a property under SPNB anymore.

  8. How about people who loan from bank?

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
Most of the time, people thought pathology MO or specialist were all just sitting down drinking coffee and chit chat all day long. No work to do. Think again. The best thing to do is to get yourself into the department itself. Work as a pathology MO first, in a few…

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
