Dr Cheah and DUST would like to thank all friends, supporters and the public who made their recent fund-raising dinner a huge success. A special thank you to members of the DAP Kg Kayu Ara Branch, who did an excellent job of coorganising the event. The money raised from this dinner will be used to fund the work of Dr Cheah's service centre.
An estimated 900+ people attended the event. Speakers included YB Teng Chang Khim (Speaker, DUN Selangor), YB Dr Boo Cheng Hau (ADUN Skudai), YB Jenice Lee (ADUN Teratai), Senator Ramakriishnan, YB Khalid Samad (Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam) and YB Elizabeth Wong (Selangor Exco/ADUN Bkt Lanjan).
Dr Cheah gave his first public speech since his accident on 11 March this year. He also sang the song popularised by the late Teresa Teng - The Moon Represents My Heart - accompanied by members of the Damansara Utama Support Team.

The new Pasar Taman Megah in SS24 was officially opened by the Selangor State Exco for Local Government, Sdr. Ronnie Liu today. The Dato Bandar, Dato' Roslan Sakiman, and Dr Cheah attended the ceremony, which started at 10 am.
The modern new market is expected to provide a more hygienic and enjoyable marketing environment for the residents.
Dr Cheah took the opportunity to walk around the whole market, catching up with the
traders. The Taman Megah Residents' Association welcomed him back warmly with two banners that read " Welcome Home YB Dr. Cheah Wing Yin."

11am – 12 noon; Walkabout in the SS2 morning market
Dr Cheah and the Damansara Utama Support Team went on a round to visit the SS2 morning market traders and customers.
This walkabout was significant for Dr Cheah, as it was his first visit to his constituents as an ADUN since his unfortunate accident. Despite his physical limitation, Dr Cheah is determined get back to work and to touch base with the Damansara Utama folks again.
The team also had a 'Meet the Press" session that morning.
Dr Cheah made his first public appearance last weekend at the SS2 morning wet market to meet his constituents and traders.
Throughout the one-hour visit, the 55-year-old did not speak much but sat on a wheelchair and shook hands with the people and answered their queries.
His special assistant, Richard Yap, said Dr Cheah, who fractured his legs and a finger in the accident, needed the walker to move around. “He can walk but has to use the wheelchair because walking through the market was not easy,” said Yap.
Many traders wished Dr Cheah and gave words of encouragement.
6.30-10.00pm ; SS 2/18 padang
Dr Cheah’s service centre and the SS2 Residents’ Association (Selatan) jointly organized a mid-autumn festival gathering for the neighborhood. The function was overwhelmingly oversubscribed, with the turnout of about 1,200 residents far exceeding the organising committee's expectations.
Dr Cheah arrived at around 8.00 pm, together with Mrs Cheah and their son, Wei Leong. He received many warm words of encouragement from the residents.
Owing to the unexpectedly huge crowd, food and drinks was not enough for all. However, the crowd had an entertaining evening watching the magician and a mask-changing performance.
Two hundred and fifty lanterns were given out to the children, who then had a lantern procession around the neighbourhood.

Family, friends and DUST members held a potluck dinner for Dr Cheah at his house last Sunday. This belated birthday party was especially meaningful as it was an occasion to celebrate his recovery from the injuries sustained in the horrific accident.
Dr Cheah continues to work hard to regain his former physical strength and capability.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Assemblyman recuperating well after accident
By CHRISTINA LOW
Saturday, May 15, Star Online
DAMANSARA Utama assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin has been transferred from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to the general ward about three weeks ago.
His special assistant, Richard Yap, has been entrusted in keeping the public informed on Cheah’s condition from time to time through Cheah’s blog (http://cheahwingyin.blogspot.com).
Cheah, who is still bedridden, had been undergoing four to five physiotherapy sessions daily to strengthen his legs.
“The physiotherapy sessions take about an hour each and it can sometimes be quite tiring for him. So for now his family has to limit the number of visitors allowed to see him,” said Yap.
In the accident in March, Cheah was hit by a vehicle in the emergency lane near the Batu Tiga toll plaza when he stopped after his car developed engine problems.
Cheah was on his way back after attending a state function in Klang. He fractured both his legs and finger in the accident and had to undergo three operations at the Sunway Medical Centre.
Yap said the 55-year-old was progressing well and was conscious of his surroundings.
“He has difficulty speaking as there is a tube attached to his throat, but he is getting on fine,” said Yap who would send gifts and cards from well-wishers to the hospital for Cheah during his daily visit.
He added that Dr Cheah would have to stay in the hospital until he is able to get on his feet. “The next step of physiotherapy is to get him on his feet. “After that we will have to wait till the doctors give us the green light before he can be discharged,” said Yap, who is now helping residents in Cheah’s constituency together with several councillors.
He said the service centre had received many calls from the public asking of Cheah’s condition and how they could visit him. “Since visitation is limited to only family members and close associates, we will be happy with just cards.”
He also urged the public not to create rumours of Cheah’s health condition. “If anyone wants to know how Dr Cheah is they should call the service centre or me to get the real picture instead of spreading rumours and hurting the family,” said Yap.

After spending 6 weeks in intensive care, Dr Cheah was at last transferred to the general ward this afternoon. All the fractures have been fixed and his condition is stable. I have just dropped in to see him - his wife, sister and brother-in-law were with him, and physiotherapy was in progress.
Dr Cheah has physiotherapy 4 times a day, and receives assistance with his daily needs. He will have to go through a prolonged period of recuperation and rehabilitation from here on.
On doctors' advice, visitation other than from family members and relatives will necessarily be limited, to allow rest and to reduce the risk of infection.
In the meantime, Dr Cheah's personal assistant, Mr Richard Yap, and his team are continuing to service the Damansara Utama constituency at the service centres.
Mrs Cheah and the family, once again, thanks all the relatives, friends and well-wishers for their continued concern and support. May God bless you all.

While the doctors and nurses continue to provide the best possible care for Dr Cheah, his team would like the public to know that it's business as usual at his main service centre in SS2, as well as at the two mobile centres in SS4 and SS22.
Dr Cheah's personal assistant, Mr Richard Yap, DUST (Damansara Utama Support Team) members and several MBPJ local councillors are continuing their work on the ground to serve the constituents.
Thank you once again to all who have shown their care and concern for Dr Cheah. His family is very touched by your love and support. Much as the family is deeply appreciative of the concern shown by friends and well wishers, they are also sorry if they have been unable to personally attend to every one of the overwhelming number of calls that have deluged them.
Therefore, I would like to make a gentle request for inquiries to be directed to the service centre if possible, and where appropriate (contact details given in the left side bar).

Dr Cheah is still in Intensive Care at the Sunway Medical Centre. His team of doctors is pleased that his condition has been stable, and plan for him to undergo surgery to repair another bone fracture in the next one or two days.
The doctors allow only family members to visit at the moment. Dr Cheah's family would like to thank all friends, well-wishers and blood donors for their prayers and support.
The Auditor-General has highlighted problems at several agricultural projects, including the TKPM, prompting PAC's attention.
After a 1hr 30min drive we reached one of TKPM sites. The team consisted of PAC chairman YB Lee, YB Suhaimie, YB Ng Suee Lin, YB Dr Ahmad Yunus, myself, and the Selangor audit officers.
After a 2-hour journey from Hulu Yam, the PAC team arrived at TKPM Sungai Panjang. This was a troubled area that has not been meeting its production targets.
A main contributory factor is the recurring flood problem it faces, owing to its low-lying location. In short, the site was poor choice for agriculture as the river nearby overflows periodically. Costly bunds have been built to keep floodwaters at bay, but the bunds break on occasion and heavy downpours cause the water to overflow the bunds. The landscape is peppered with big drains/ponds dug to contain some of the water to minimise the flood-effects.
