View Full Version : How to start NWatch for USJ3A

I am also trying to set up for USJ3A. Called the Selangor Rukun Tetangga number but always engaged or no answer.


I am out of ideas, but response from my neighbours has been good. I suppose the thing to do now to keep this effort alive is to organize family events in the neighbourhood.

We have a 'lake' in USJ3A (actually a pond from a longkang), perhaps we can all meet there for an evening barbeque?

Wow, that was in 2001.

And you are still only talking about it?

Man, talk about being slow to take off.

Robert, let's be fair to Rusman who i believe is a new member of this Forum. He is just latching on to the USJRA thread. Maybe he does not know that he can start a new thread on his own.

Since it is a new topic, i have now split it out as a thread of its own.

Anyway, welcome to our Forum, Rusman. Please note that we mainly have Neighbourhood Watches here. That is a lot of difference from Rukun Tetangga. I'll let more experienced people like Robertec and Raymond to enlighten you.

Rusman, how about USJ 3C?, very far in and quiet place. Only 2 houses has moved in. Thanks!

Cheers, Cher

Sorry about the quip whilst we were back in the USJRA thread, I meant no ill intent.

Since you say that the response from your neighbours is good, why donít you just start off with forming a USJ3 Residentsí Pro-Tem Committee to decide how you would like to progress.

If you are looking at forming a Neighbourhood Watch Group, visit the Neighbourhood Watch Website at http://www.nwatch.net.my look around, and then contact me at robertec@nwatch.net.my or Raymond Tan (who we affectionately refer to as the Mother of all Neighbourhood Watch Groups) at raymond@nwatch.net.my if you need our help.

Just so you know, we have residents in SS18, USJ2, Putra Heights, Bandar Puchong, Section 27 Shah Alam, probably in SS14 and now USJ3 that are looking at starting some form of network for Community work.

Like what Raymond always say, in order to start, you have to walk the walk and talk the talk.

Hi Rusman

Starting a NW is fairly an easy task. Just drop flyers in everybody's house and if you want to get a really good response, contact and cordinate with the people who are specialised in house breaking and hey presto, you have the whole neighbourhood flocking to your house for the inaugural meeting. You don't even have to serve them tea!! But since you have no intention to do that, it is still easy but a lot of hard work have to be put in. My wife used to tell me on 4 occasions (you see, I got 4 kids) that giving birth to a child is easy compared to raising it up. The same goes to NW. I do not want to pour cold water on you. You say you have the pond there. Just jump into it. No lah, just joking. Like what Chang said, contact our ePenghulu, Raymond Tan and we the 3 Musketeers - Robert, Raymond and me would be most happy to help you out. You are lucky that this community of yours is new. As people move in, you can be like our wakil rakyak - go meet them when they are unloading their stuff, shout "Welcome to USJ 3A, shake their hands and just introduce yourself. See how surprised they are. Some may even pinch themselves wondering whether they have moved into the right place.

For more established community, I notice they tend to like the Rukun Tetangga. Why waste your time calling the Selangor Rukun Tetangga? But if you are still keen on RT, call me instead (012-2995330) and I shall introduce to you the RT man of Subang Jaya who if I am not wrong, have set up 4 RTs here. Mind you, RT is full of red tape - you have just experienced the first one - UNCONTACTABLE.
