Edward joined Petaling Jaya Old Town residents on 21 September for a memorable double celebration — Buka Puasa-cum-Lantern Festival. Also in attendance at the PJ Old Town Food Court were PJ Selatan MP Hee Loy Sian and Taman Medan assemblyman Haniza Talha.

While enjoying the festive atmosphere of the multi-racial gathering, the leaders also pledged to revive the food court to its glory days. The food court holds special memories for Edward who spent many childhood days tucking into the scrumptious local favourites there.

Efforts to restore the food court's popularity are currently underway, he says. These include tackling issues such as cleanliness, lighting, traffic flow and licensing. "We are meeting with the stake holders to come out with a remedy that will benefit all," he adds.

The Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives also promised administrative reforms and called for the release of blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin and the five Hindraf leaders, as well as the abolition of the ISA, the Sedition Act and the Emergency Ordinance.
