This is funny. Just a few days ago the Federal Territories minister announced plans to "re-locate" chicken and pork sellers in the Pudu market to an 'enclosed site'. Today, I read in The Star that the Malacca Chief Minister has plans to relocate Malaysia's thespians (the Star's choice of name and not mine) and musicians to an Artistes Village in Alor Gajah. CM, Ali Rustam announced that a 25.5 hectare site will be developed. 217 lots for homes, a 1.8ha open air stage, training and film studio and an auditorium. I don't know about you but I shuddered when I read about that.
Pork sellers in that enclosed site.
TV actors over there.
Film directors over here. No here la. Under the producers' reservation. Yes!
Stage actors next to the irrigation drain there where there is proper drainage and hygiene.
The Star article reports that so far 'thespians' who have showed interest in this reservation include Jins Shamsuddin and Aziz Satar. So maybe this proposed 'enclosed site' is only meant for putting old flers out to pasture.
One day maybe they will also have 'an enclosed site' for Barisan Nasional politicians past their use-by date.
