CIMB Bank's Advertisement

The CIMB Bank Berhad's recent advertisement shown below has drawn a flak from the general public. Looks like CIMB Bank Berhad was taking advantage of the current flood situation in the southern state of Johore (more pictures) when placing this advert. Even though it looks nice as if you have all those money to dry up but it's not funny seeing your whole house/shop being flooded....... insensitive bank.
The following is an appeal a friend of mine who manages Marina Mahathir's office. The calamity in the southern state of Johore has displaced again more than 100,000 people from their home sweet home. This has been their new year. Organise something in your office or with friends for our fellow Malaysians, not just any malays, chinese or indians but Malaysians. It’s not hard to just organise or sending it compared to the plight that the fellow malaysians in Johore are facing now.

Hi everyone
On behalf of the Red Crescent Society, my office has been requested to see if we could get people to donate as many BLANKETS as possible to the flood victims in Johor. Hence, my office has been designated as the drop off point and we will get them all packed and delivered to the Johorians sometime later this week and end of next week. Tentatively, the cut off date will be 26th Jan 2007.

Please kindly ensure that the blankets are either
a) new, in that it has never been used before OR
b) used before but clean and in good condition. yes, that means please wash them thoroughly before you donate them as I'm sure that all of us would appreciated clean blankets should someone donate a used blanket to us.

My office details are as follows:
Mosaique Communications Sdn. Bhd.
48 Jalan Terasek Dua
Bangsar Baru
59100 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: 03-22848775

Please kindly expediate and send over the blankets soonest possible as there's an urgent need for these blankets and I hope that all of you will donate generously during this difficult time for those in Johor.

Thank you.
Best regards

My Johor aunt and her family of 15 lost their house and everything in the floods. The kids have not been able to go to school.
All the relatives are chipping in to help. It's really sad. Lucky they have relatives to help, when I saw the poor evacuees at the temp shelter, they are so pitiful. How can you live like that?
