seri_perdanaHey Malaysians, this is where all your heart/hard earned tax money go to!!! What do they mean by “the government pays” ? Where do they get the money from???

(from Malaysiakini)

In a written parliamentary reply to DAP MP Liew Chin Tong, Abdullah had revealed that the government forks out RM6 million a year for rental and maintenance works for his official residence, Seri Perdana.

According to the reply, RM4,149,000 is paid as rental to Putrajaya Holdings – the master developer of the federal administrative capital – while the remaining RM1,896,616 is for maintenance works.

The government also pays RM3.4 million (RM2,273,888 for rental and RM1,129,992 for maintenance) for Seri Setia, the deputy premier’s official residence.

In total, this works out to about RM26,000 per day for both residences.

Total wastage! Total corruption! and total disrespect for the rakyat’s hard earned money!

    With country’s money from the Rakyat and almost absolute power, this what he can do and will do to us, screw the laws up. The Judiaciary is perfectly never going to be independent, this if not corrected, nothing else can work. The ACA no matter what is going to be lame duck body no matter truth is unearthed!

    Aiyah,how to be a developed country by 2020,
    with the global recession and our PM and DPM
    saying Malaysia is insulated from it.

    With the daily rental of RM26,000/- paid for
    both residences it is peanut compared to the
    commission paid for the 2 submarines and 18
    sukhoi fighter planes.In the first place,
    is Malaysia at war with the neighbouring
    Asean countries to spend that amount of money
    which can be used to build more schools,hospitals,
    roads etc..the rot can only stop when a new govt.
    is in placed like other democratic country eg.
    Great Britain,Australia,India,USA otherwise BN
    thinks it is their god given right to Govern Mysia
    for the next 51 years.

    how disgusting to see those corrupt people leaving in high class mansions while we as middle class people working so hard to earn money in private sector,but what we can do…NOTHING..they have power,we have nothing!

  8. Devan says:

    Stupid Assholes…the PM and his deputy…living in luxury while the Rakyat suffers!!!RM 26,000 daily is damn too much.This money should be put to better use then having to spend unnessesarily !!!All this was started by Mahathir the EVIL KING !!!!
    DAMN WALNUTS…………………

  9. Simon says:

    I wonder why Malaysians still support him as the PM?? What is the use of making noise now? We should exercise our rights during election time but sadly we failed to do so! Shame on those who still support him and even more shame on those that did not even bother cast their votes!

    So between the PM and the his house is the” middle man” in Umno’s philosophy– they can never do anything direct– a crony has to be involved!– -PutraJaya Holdings — They takes it from the left hand and give it with his right to fool the Taxpayer.
    WOW ! the grass cutters , cooks , toilet cleaners all must all be millionaires! — so much for maintenance? Maybe caviar is fresh flown from Iran every morning .
    Great Iman of Hardari– a waster– yet the grassroots cant see the elephant in front of their eyes !!!!!

    If your Prime Minister lives in a rented residence there is no way your country can become a developed country. Just look around in which develoed country does the Prime Minister live in a rented official reisdence?

  17. Aya says:

    we Sarawakian are more painfull than our brother in Malaya, but what to say as brother Simon said majority of Sarawakian still not exercise their right. Can we have someone like Karamsingh Wali to shows all malaysian how poor and suffer are we Sarawakian with the increasing price of food and other daily need which are twice expensive than in west malaysia.Not to say on the our mean of transportation. The road that west malaysia said is jalan kampong is with two lane on both side but in Sarawak with on lane our gomen said is highway which I used to say jalan hutan.If we want to change the mindset of sarawakian I suggest we need to have independent TV station which can counter wight all the bullshits that government TV station did.

    What a conman of a PM we have,very convincing talk about Islam Hadhari,and what a waste!!! The country’s wealth and our hard earned money is siphon off and robbed by all these BN assholes for their own and family use right under our nose and there is nothing much we can do till the 13th GE.BN should be kick out for good, Umno,MCA , and MIC are irrelevant parties which are not needed any more as long as these race based party are there , corruption will exist, there will be no end to this. Time to throw out these assholes.While the Rakyat are struggling to meet their daily needs ,this BN regime is wasting our money and the bloody BN has the cheek to ask the Rakyat to tighten our belt while they go on a spending spree like nobody business,WTF!!!.Let’s kick out these BN regime soonest possible!!!.

    MY GOD, WHATS HAPPENING HERE! THE CAT IS FINALLY OUT OF THE BAG. WE STILL HAVE MANY HARD CORE POOR IN THIS COUNTRY, BE THEY MALAYS, CHINESE, INDIANS AND THE OTHER RACES AND THESE 2 GUYS HAVING THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES LIVING IN THIS KIND OF SUPER LUXURY. MIND YOU HAVING TO PAY RENTAL AND MAINTENANCE AT A WHOOPING RM26 MILLION A YEAR FOR THE 2 PALACES IS BEYOND ME. DO YOU KNOW THAT MANY MALAYSIANS AFTER RETIREMENT DO NOT EVEN HAVE RM200 THOUSAND. AND HERE YOU HAVE THESE 2 GUYS SPENDING RM26 MILLION OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON JUST THEIR RESIDENCES. I AM SURE THEY WILL HAVE DRIVERS FOR THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN, GARDENERS, COOKS AND WHATEVER. SOMEBODY HAVE TO PAY THOSE PEOPLE SALARY. DONT TELL ME FROM OUR TAX MONEY. NO WONDER THERE IS CORRUPTION IN UMNO ELECTION. NO WONDER THE MALAY POLITICIAN USES MONEY LIKE WATER DURING UMNO ELECTION. THE KEY WORD IS TO WIN THE ELECTION AND THINGS WILL NATURALLY FALL IN PLACE. IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHO NEGIOTIATED THE RATE OF RENTAL AND MAINTENANCE WITH PUTRAJAYA HOLDINGS. HAH! YOU KNOW AND I KNOW. THE OPPOSITION, ESPECIALLY PKR AND PAS MUST DO THEIR UTMOST TO OPEN THE EYES AND EARS OF THE RURAL MALAYS. THEY HAVE TO USE WHATEVER MEANS AT THEIR DISPOSAL TO KEEP THE RURAL MALAYS WELL INFORMED OF UMNO EVILS. ONLY THEN, CAN THEY EXPECT TO RECEIVE GENUINE SUPPORT FROM THE RURAL MALAYS. IF THEY CAN BE SUCCESSFUL TO UNDERTAKE THIS IMPORTANT TASK, THEN WE CAN SAY GOODBYE AND GOOD RIDENCE TO UMNO IN THE 13TH GENERAL ELECTION

    Anyways, he is to be blamed…what we going thru, the spending habit, he started, people in his footsteps follow. Why change is their MOTTO.

    I blame Tun mahatahi for it.

  33. tun perak says:

    WHO DOES Putrajaya holdings belong to… it is a front for UMNO, these are the way umno gets rich by robbing the malaysian people. SO THE PM IS from umno, he lives in a palace built with govt funds, which is than rented out to him, its a win win scenario which ever way you look at it, it is a front to swindle from the malaysian people to line the pockets of umno.

  34. tun perak says:

    Think very carefully, the govt funded the putrajaya build through loans to putrajaya holdings, why lend money to somebody to build you a house which you will gurantee rent back from him, now think very carefully about what I have just written, does it make any sense, it is the same with all the privatisation projects, UMNO CONTROLS ALL THE ASSETS through proxies. This is mahathir legacy of making sure UMNO coffers never run dry.

  35. setia says:

    Its scandalous and what a huge waste of taxpayers hard earned money.
    Why such a grand palace like a King ….look at the PM of England home and most European Countries …humble and cosy -easy to maintain and when their PM travel they dont show off like our PM with convoy of 10 cars and 8 outriders but only 2 outriders and 1 Car following.
    Clearly Umno have Grand vision of themselves….look at how simple and humble PAS Leader Nik Aziz lives …..RREFORMASI !!!

  36. monsterball says:

    How sinful..spending RM26,000 per day…just to show off.
    When crooks keep stealing and take that as lawful and rightfully theirs……on and on for more than 30 years…so much so…they think they own Malaysia and will rule forever.
    Democracy means….we deserve the government we get.
    But in Malaysia…it is not a democratic election.
    It’s call.. guided democracy..by UMNO…guiding Muslims to vote for them…as their savior…their Lords..their defenders.
    Will it work on 13th election?
    RPK said…if we want to get rid of corruptions and ISA…we have to get rid of UMNO.

  37. bamboo river says:

    Been there during mahathir’s time. No, not to visit him but to see on my own eyes the luxuries in that ‘palace’.
    Thick wall to wall carpet ,chandeliers in each guest hall,wrought iron with polished brass railings at all staircases. I had commented before in Susan’s blog, if someone to get a contract to change all the lightbulbs ,he will become very very rich.
    All those fees to maintain the ‘palace’ are hiked price ah ???

  38. abdullah says:

    A devil in disquised,a flip flop who promises but never delivers is him.eg,the petrol prices.He promises when the prices increased to 2.70 but now he taxes us in the tune of RM16m,i gathered daily when crude oil prices down tis far.Ashame!Ashame!

  39. That was one of the reasons why racist Indian Mahathir hung on to be the P.M. and live like a King for so long ? Because he cannot ‘become’ the King like the way he can become a Malay.
    He built this for himself and AAB wants to enjoy it as long as he can and his DPM is willing to do anything (anything, I am sure everybody understands what that means) to have the right to stay in it.
    It is racist pariah Indian Mahathir who should be be responsible and answerable !!!

  40. Lisa says:

    Don’t understand why the PM has to rent a house from the Putrajaya Corp. Afterall, isn’t Putrajaya the administrative capital?? Surely when Dr M decided to build Putrajaya and to move the PM’s office out there, he thought about the Federal Government BUYING the land to build a house as the PM’s official residence??

    Now I’m wondering what clever story Dr M going to tell to rationalise the blatant corruption which is why the PM’s official residence is rented and at such exhorbitant cost.

    Then, what explanation Pak Lah is going to give as to why he allowed this wasteful spending to continue when he came into office? He vowed to stamp out corruption but he lives unperturbed in the midst of it.

  41. Moo.. says:

    Since the rental paid is benefit in kind according to the tax man, the prime minister should be paying the RM6,000,000.00 x 26% = RM15.6 million in tax.

    According to the tax act, only the sultan and king are exempted from tax.

    Looks like the PM and DPM is evading tax.

  42. kittykat46 says:

    To be fair to Bedol, this was a hand-me-down from its originator – yes – the guy with the name “Maha…”. He was Maha everything, overblown delusions of grandeur, complete with a palace of “Arabian Nights” proportions.

    Does anyone realise many schools in East Malaysia have no electricity at all ?

  43. justice6 says:

    putrajaya holdings belong to who? maybe his relative.. it’s like staying at my own house, paying rental with rakyat money.. both way, I still make…haha… we all should stop paying taxes… I late pay my bank for housing loan, they already calling my handphone… and we have govt minister who live like a king.. before i die, i will make sure they die with me..

  44. amy says:

    ai-yoh, of course must stay in plush, plush houses and hotel rooms-mah. if not, where got prestige? jokes aside, the goons don’t have to have big mansions. They can always say we have to walk the talk and save. Just build a reasonably size bungalow, i think it’s acceptable by the rakyat. don’t have to follow Nik Aziz’s choice. It’s his choice to stay in kampung house. but, our urban “kings” never, never, never “earned” it, so live according to your skills and means that commensurate with your “qualifications”! Do you all think that he feels ashamed? Nah!

    To quote author Datuk Shannon Ahmad:-

    Wow, makes the official residence of the Singapore PM looks like a pauper’s hut…

  48. malaysiansbodoh says:

    All the buildings in Putrajaya belongs to Putrajaya Holdings and the Government had signed long leases to this corporation which owns the entire Putrajaya. Why no one bothers to check who are the shareholders of Putrajaya Holdings and who or their families benefit the most out of this “development project”? Also check for how long this nation has to pay this corporation even if the Government terminate the leases.

  49. ah long says:

    I would not at all be surprised if at the end of their term they will get to keep the house!!!

    Next PM will say the house is second hand and want a new one.

    Malaysia Boleh.

    Our tax money
    Suppose to prosper the country
    Improve public transport systems
    Improve health care and services
    Protect the innocents
    Ensure crimes free on the streets

    Our tax money
    Running into billions
    Wastage seems in spending
    Enriching a few
    The majority living
    With tight budget and sleepless nights

    Our tax money
    Laying to waste in public expenditures
    Look at the PM and DPM residences
    It runs into millions in tax payers’ money
    Renting and upkeep of properties
    Why it is so?

    Can’t they stay in modest homes?
    Buy bungalows and live with it
    It is peoples’ money they shouldn’t waste
    Now we realize they want to live like kings

    The perks of office
    Running into millions
    They don’t care
    It isn’t their monies

    We work so hard
    Earn our income pay our taxes
    Here we have government ministers
    Squandered it off without a care

    It wasn’t ketuanan melayu all this while, it was ketuanan umno. While I’m trying to sell maggi mee cheaper than RM4.70 per pkt at my convenience store with my ordinary man on the street customers saying it’s cheaper elsewhere, this fraudsters spend 26k of rakyat money per day. We know umno is weak in mathematics , but shouldn’t be this weak so as to make a laughing stock of yourself to the world! And those sons of cows who suck up to umno, like Samyvolu lives in a palace himself in Jalan Ipoh..! We have con artistes for leaders.. PM Imam Hadhari konon!

  52. cl says:

    Duh! PM & DPM’s residence are only a certain fraction of Putra Jaya, and it already cost More than RM4m a year. Now include all the Ministry Buildings and government quaters that I supposed are rented too? (can someone dig into this too?). I believe thi will run into 100’s of millions of the people’s $$$$.
    Also, let’s dig into to find out who are the owners of Putra Jaya Holdings, I can imagine UMNO being the major share holders, and some other nominy companies owned by the cronies and people in power.
    And let’s not forget, this is TDM’s project, Works Minister during that time is none other than Semi Value and DPM was DSAI. Thus the concessions to PJ Holdings could have been allocated during their times. Can someone investigate into this and make it public? But becareful of OSA…..

    PM stays in such a luxuries place but never had enough sleep.Using so much off Rakyat’s Money surely TIDAK HALAL. Thats why he cant sleep peacefully there n he sleeps during work. While here we work like hell to survive.May devil bless him ALWAYS.

  56. Menyalak-er says:

    Just an aside, crony developers in order to get succulent deals also provide ‘gifts’ in houses and land to the these flurs. They rob the rakyat of land at will with the help of the goons and as ‘payment’, build luxurious palaces of which Zul Deros’s palace is considered a mudhut!
    Anyone cares to look at the persons who own prime cuts of land and mansions within the Sepang/Nilai districts by the one particular sneaky developer? If that is not ‘graft’, then Seri Perdana doen’t exists. Honesty, integrity and transparency never existed, nor it ever will in boleh-liwat-land!
    ACA and its recently modified acronym should be named RACA – the Aramaic equivalent of ‘hollowness/stupidity’.

  57. wira says:

    I’ve been searching the internet for the housing allowance of our PM according to the civil list but to no avail.

    The government should give him a housing allowance instead like what they gave to MB Tok Nik Aziz (who actually refused the sum of RM2200/m to stay at his own house)

    Why should the country provide him with such a palatial home at our expense ?

    Now you understand why ,one of the reasons, so many hopefuls, are dying and buying votes in the coming UMNO election ? To stay in this house Mahathir built. I am sure he must have wish there is a law that says he can take this with him. Though ,with his petty cash, he can easily build one that is even bigger than this if he wants to.
    May be Susan might be able to show the house the 1st P.M. who got Malaya independence and formed Malaysia, stayed for all to see and also to compare.
    Even to become the DPM for now is still going to stay in the smaller palace that is presently occupied by Najib and his family and his family ! One day to stay in it even if I have to take Allah’s name in vain !
    This is not to mention the glory and ‘under the table’ billions it goes with the post.
    This is what corrupted Mahathir is all about ! This should be enough to have him indicted !

    Compared to 1st World Standard

    – The British PM lives in a modest 2-storey Terrace House next to the PM’s office.
    – The Australian PM lives in a very modest 2-storey bungalow.
    – The Japanese PM lives in a century-old , reportedly haunted residence.

    The PM is supposed to be a Yang Berkhidmat, not some kind of later-day Nabob.

    The White House is pretty imposing, but not to forget, the US President is both Head of State and Chief Executive of the US.

A massive blow to these gas station operators…. A standard operating procedures that government officials are monitoring their gas stations….

    3) And when they start to realize that DSAI is using this price increase as his manifesto to win the hearths of all Malaysians, then price of fuel start coming down…

    4) Now they are targeting hypermarkets with their Political Features…. SO WHAT IS THE PEOPLE’S BENEFIT WHEN PRICE INCREASE OVER 30% & YOU ARE GIVING US A 20% DISCOUNT NOW????? Isn’t this more expensive NOW????

    & HIS IDIOTIC ADVISORS/ECONOMIST actually thinks that we can go back to the EQUILIBRIUM point…. HA HA HA

    Hello Buddy, you have got a nice blog. Can you tell me the name of the theme? I like it.

  78. ktak says:

    The question here is whether the PM have weight the cost of owning vs the cost of leasing (25-year contract) the official residence before signing on the dotted lines.

    Cost of rental = 25 year x RM 4,149,000
    = RM 108.53m

    It is definitely cheaper to own the property if the lease contract is for 25 years.

    So next question is who benefit from the 25-year lease contract ?

No wonder C4 & rosie are so hardup for the job. The gravy train continues les we Voters can stop them come GE13, by which time Malaysia might be left with only crumbs.

    you, people need to reform the government.
    reinforce the democracy’
    WRONG WE NEED TO LINE THEM AGAINST THE WALL AND SHOOT THEM DOWN LIKE THE DOGS THEY ARE.

    And the PM had the guts to tell the rakyat to “tighten their belts”!

  84. anonymous says:

    In Malaysia the Agong stay in a house previously owned by a Chinese Towkey. Dr M want a palace form himselve that can match the sultan of Brunei.

  85. Spicey Goat says:

    Yeah! We’ll tighten our belts alright, around their necks, come GE13.

    To TheWrathOfGrapes:

    The Singapore PM does not have an official residence. They live in whatever house they lived in before they came into office. They continue to live in that house once they leave office.

    Cabinet Ministers in Singapore are the equivalent of very senior management in the private sector and are expected to perform accordingly. They are paid a salary that reflects that. Singapore cabinet ministers are all university graduates (many of them have postgraduate degrees) in RECOGNISED subjects.

    The Singapore PM and DPM don’t need official residences because they worked hard in their jobs before coming into office. They have been paid salaries comensurate with their abilities and so able to buy their own homes rather than be a burden to the state to rent a house for them.

    In Malaysia, what looks like a cheap bargain ends up being a burden because not only does it not work properly, it requires a lot of costly maintenance.

  87. While all this is going on the leaders are not considering the fear factor. Not the fear factor of foreign investors but of the average person in Malaysia.Too many of us know of people who are working two jobs to make ends meet.And here we are spending taxpayer’s money to live in luxury.Too many of us are also having grave concerns over our leaders both in the government and corporate sector because many a time we have not been told the truth.Too many of us suffer from the fear of speaking – up and have developed the ability to say onething and do another.Too many of us fear that the Malaysian way of life that we all love is being tossed away for the good of a certain group of people who have more money and clout than we do.

    Mahathir the Mamak King is the master of racial game. He instigated the Malays fighting against the non-Malays.

    While we are fighting ferociously among ourselves, Mahathir the Mamak KIng had it easy in plundering the wealth big time of Bodohland.

    So blame Lim Kit Siang, Nik Aziz, Lim Liong Sik, Lim Keng Aid for all the help they offered to Mahathir The Mamak King in plundering big time of Bodohland.

  89. colonial man says:

    This Bodolah is like a god living on earth which is better than heaven.

    No wonder Bodolah wants to be a hadhari god eternally!

    Don’t know how it it will be like for a god like Bodolah in hell when the time comes?

    run like hell

    Power Corrupts !
    Absolute power corrupts!
    The PM of Industralised Countries live in modest homes NOT Palaces ….only Kings live in Palaces.
    Mahathir did consider himself King as he controlled everything…down to framing & fixing his Deputy PM Anwar Ibrahim.
    HIdup REFORMASI !!!

  91. jkoena says:

    We should not forget that klang umno warlord who hv a bigger palace than PM & built it in the midst of those poor malay souls living in kampung slum. I hv a driver who is umno ordinary member, attended every meetings & rallies. And always pokai, every month advance salary. When i questioned him, my driver just sighed, so hopeless & pathetic. The malays must wake up before umno plunder you high & dry. umno is like parasites living off your blood, sweat & tears!

    All the shit leftover are now with Pak Lah and he is now perceived bad
    SCREW YOU -MAHATHIR!!

  93. bodoh folks says:

    Sigh, looking at the feelings of the poor rakyat fighting against each other for a miserable decent living house while the politicians are living like kings in palaces, the rakyat must be bodoh, bodoh, bodoh continue fighting among each other singing to the tune of the avaricious politicians in Bodohland.

  94. bodoh folks says:

    It’s time for the rakyat to stop fighting each other and start confiscating all the looted assets stolen by all these lawless and nefarious politicians from bodohland.

    Otherwise Bodohland is nothing but consists of real bodoh folks.

  95. bodoh folks says:

    There is nothing to be proud of living in a land like Bodohland because Bodohland is just consisting of a bunch of stupid bodoh folks.

    All that’s exactly what the faceless and soulless politicians want in Bodohland.

  96. bodoh folks says:

    And all the Bodoh folks want is to abolish the isa through candle vigilance.

    Really rally a stupid bunch of Bodoh folks wasting another bunch of time from another bunch of Bodoh folks.

  97. bodoh folks says:

    If the Bodoh folks in Bodohland don’t start confiscating all the illegitimate assets by all these avaricious and soulless politicians, there will be no future in Bodohland for the Bodoh folks.

  98. bodoh folks says:

    If the elected PR don’t lead the role in confiscating the looted assets by their fellow avaricious and ignominious BN politicians starting from Mamakthir s/o Kutty, Bodohlah, Ling Liong Sick, Lim Keng Aid, Raapidah, Semi Value…. but joining in the profligate party, it’s time for the Bodoh folks electing some other smart Bodoh folks replacing the useless PR elected folks.

    What has been revealed seem to suggest the BN government is so poor can’t buy its own administration property but got to rent. Doing like what undergraduates do but living the luxury of a rich person at the expense not of their own money, but the rakyat being the parents in this case!
    Who says politicians of the ruling government are poor and got no taste for the opulence, luxuries and free comforts of life? See http://www.jonathan66-my.blogspot.com ‘No sense and rental stupidy over PM & DPM residences?’

  110. Maris says:

    I hope the powerul people in the world who have the capacity and ability to make things better for people in general will be more socially-concerned and sensitive.

    Even if it’s a fact that life is not fair, there will always be rich people and poort people, I think those who are more privileged should at least pay it forward and give back to the society that nourishes them–that way life will be made fair, even in small doses.
