After 12 years, what supposed to be "Upgrading and Landscaping of Jalan St. Patrick" actually turned out to be "Landscaping the road side in front Teck Guan Company".

There is no upgrading to the one kilometer long road. No landscaping on the opposite side of the road and other section of the road.

Slow torture to a tree

Slow torture to a tree by human

This is well grown mango tree in a driving school compound in Sabah. Someone deliberately want to kill this young tree by burning at it trunk. Before burning, the tree bark at the main trunk also deliberately been cut and removed.

The purpose of killing this tree is unknown. But believed to be related to traditional superstition from Indonesia. Killing a tree may has something similar as sacrifice a hen, or a black cat or a goat to please the evil spirit in return for divine protection.

Certain Indonesian who believe in ANTU lives in trees will start "slow-killing" that tree when they do not feel comfortable to see it every day.

The destruction include Cutting and removal of tree bark follow with Burning

While there are many NGO preventing cruelty to cats, dogs and animals, there is no NGO in preventing cruelty to trees such as this dying mango tree. Someone should start to organize one
