牌楼竖立17年见证歷史 唐人街双龙瓜登地標

方天兴:牌楼竖立17年见证歷史 唐人街双龙瓜登地標

华总总会长丹斯里方天兴说,瓜登唐人街牌楼是在17年前兴建,並数度维修,目前可说是登州华社的一个重要歷史见证及重要地標。

 他说,拥有中华文化色彩的唐人街牌楼,在登华堂带动和爭取下,获州政府拨出5万令吉特別拨款进行维修。

 方天兴今早在瓜拉登嘉楼唐人街的牌楼“双龙”开光仪式上致词时,如是指出。

 “登嘉楼河口是早期华裔先贤聚居地之一,数百年来,安居乐业,歷经了时代的变迁和战火的洗礼,凑形成了唐人街独有的中华特徵和色彩。

 “身为华裔的我们,仍然屹立在这条歷经岁月洗涤的唐人街,两旁林立著战前悠久的建筑物,虽景物依旧人事已非,但我们还是感到莫名的感慨、感动和激动。”

陈明山:祥龙重现,辉煌无限

华总副总会长兼登嘉楼中华大会堂会长陈明山指出,瓜登牌楼双龙设立17年,週五正式“开光”,且盼瓜登唐人街“祥龙重现,辉煌无限”!

 “往后的日子,这座古色古香加上双龙戏珠的牌楼,就是瓜登的地標,或许还是全马唯一的唐人街牌楼。”

 他说,唐人街是一条古街,在河边的一座古跡城,就是瓜拉登嘉楼,是中国明朝末年时期大批华裔从海南前来下岸,街道两旁的双层排屋,更是战前依河而建並保留至今。

 “这里也被发展成美丽的河畔景区,並建有充满中华色彩的唐人街牌楼,洋溢著满满的中华气息。”

大会邀请到华总会长丹斯里方天兴主持点睛开光仪式。

登嘉楼中华大会堂会长陈明山今日在新闻发佈会上指出,双龙雕塑在1998年置放在唐人坡牌楼上,歷经17年的风雨,牌楼及双龙雕塑已残旧破损,因此登华堂在今年7月展开维修工作。

他说,双龙雕塑被拆下来后,送往马六甲进行维修,目前已经完成维修工作。

“双龙雕塑择定本週三(23日)运抵瓜登,然后在当天重新置放在牌楼上。”

他指出,虽然已经有17年的歷史,可是双龙雕塑至今仍未点睛开光,因此经过登华堂諮询风水师许木秋的意见后,决定为双龙雕塑点睛开光。

和安宫路口开始封路

另一方面,陈明山指出,由於当天会动用到云梯升到牌楼上为双龙雕塑主持点睛开光仪式,因此从和安宫路口至牌楼的路段將封路,方便仪式的进行。

他说,届时交通警察將在现场维持交通秩序,希望驾驶人士遵从交警的指示,改用其他路线前往目的地。

“这个隆重而简单的仪式可能需要约1至2个小时,这期间对驾驶人士造成不便,希望能获得谅解。”

Air quality in Peninsular Malaysia remains bad

Air quality in Peninsular Malaysia remains bad

Air quality remained bad today as the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia continued to be blanketed by a heavy shroud of haze, with many coastal cities recording an unhealthy reading on the Air Pollutant Index (API).

According to readings published on the Department of Environment's (DOE) website, six locations including Seremban, Malacca, and Putrajaya were rated as unhealthy (100-200) on the API as at 5pm today.

The Natural Resources and Environment Ministry said in a statement today that the haze is caused by open burning of forests and land in Sumatera, Indonesia according to satellite images captured by the Singaporean based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The agency detected 132 hot spots in Kalimantan, Indonesia, alone, while only one hot spot was detected in Sumatera due to incomplete satellite coverage as of Sunday.

According to satellite coverage, the ministry said, the haze is expected to spread to Pahang and to east Johor in the next 48 hours while in East Malaysia the haze from Kalimantan is expected to spread to west Sarawak and the waters surrounding both Sabah and Sarawak in the same period of time.

The ministry said the country is still experiencing the southwest monsoon phase that is expected to end by mid-September and noted that the haze will likely dissipate by the monsoon transition phase in October.

Meanwhile, the Environment Department will continue monitoring the status and trend of air quality on an hourly basis due to the uncertain haze situation and increased hot spots in Sumatera and Kalimantan.

All government agencies relevant to haze disaster response have also stepped up efforts in preventing open burning locally that will worsen the already unhealthy air quality.

Local governments and land owners have also been instructed to closely monitor and take preventive actions in places that could easily catch fire such as waste disposal spots, forests, farm land, and industrial complexes.

Meanwhile, Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar will also head to Indonesia as soon as possible to meet his counterpart there to discuss solutions and to finalise a memorandum of understanding on cross-border haze prevention.
