Warisan Merdeka the 100 storey tower

In the last Friday Budget 2011, our PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the proposal of 100 storey tower called Warisan Merdeka at the cost of RM 5 billions.

There are a lots of positive views and the negative views on the tower. The good one can be found on news like The Star today while for the negative view you only have to go 1 place that is 1M Malaysians Reject 100-Storey Mega Tower facebook

There are many question running in mind. Do we need another mega tower in KL? Do KL need more office space? Do demands for office space will increased by 2020? Are our KLCC twin towers office space fully occupied? Is PNB  wanted to consolidated all their subsidiaries in 1 tower? Is the project will be transparent? Who will bear the over-budget problem? Is the tower will be duplicate of Malaysia identity? Who going to built the tower? Foreign contractors will be main choice? Did local contractors have the expertise? Who funding the tower? Will the tower eventually become another gathering point for foreign workers during weekend and holiday day? 

OK, im just read the news on The Star today here: The Star .

"Najib stressed the Government did not instruct PNB to construct Warisan Merdeka and that it was the company’s board of directors that had wanted to embark on the project. "

 Its the PNB's board of directors which comprises of 6 members according to PNB website. 

Ladies and gentlemen, the board of directors of PNB. The brainchild of 100-storey tower.

Im really wanted to comment but im in-capable to comment on this 100-storey tower project. 
Even i have the finance degree, but the real world out there are rapid changing! What we see now might represent its better or worse in future. Now im just realised the questions on above im mentioned are too laymen who see it now. 

We know who we are. We know what we are. We are Malaysian. We shit everywhere. We throw rubbish everywhere. We never recycle. We rather correct than prevent.  

 Im just can pray everyday that shit wont happen to this project. Just hope the bad habits are stopped and the good transparent, quality, commitment, safety, planning and etc etc will be blessing the tower.   

My 2cents end here.
