PETALING JAYA: The Economic Planning Unit(EPU) has ordered Tourism Ministry subsidiary Pempena Sdn Bhd to stop all activities on Malaysia Kitchen. Sources said this is to facilitate investigations by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA), which is expected to embark on a wide probe. “Malaysia
Kitchen can no longer operate until this whole issue is sorted out,” said the source.

The project was set up to promote Malaysia abroad by opening restaurants in major cities around the world. Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said, who took over from Datuk
Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor in March, had said that RM30 million was given to Pempena for this purpose, over a four-year period, with nothing to show.

“Up till Oct 15, RM9.1 million had been spent while the remaining RM900,000 would be spent till the end of the year. The ministry has set aside RM20 million for the next two years,” she had told Parliament last week. The source added: “Till today, Malaysia Kitchen has nothing to show in terms of ROI (return on investment), which is why the EPU wants to pore over this venture’s viability.” He said the EPU was studying the PriceWaterHouse audit on Malaysia Kitchen and other Pempena firms, saying the audit report raised concerns.

Restaurants listed on the Malaysia Kitchen website include Awana Chelsea and Champor Champor in London; Bunga Raya in Weisbaden,
Germany; Banana Leaf in Helsinki; Malakka in Rotterdam; and China Garden in Moscow. Pempena came into the limelight following
allegations in a memorandum by disgruntled staff who alleged irregularities and accused senior offi cials of corruption and criminal breach of trust. This includes RM11 million spent on
Pempena Executive Taxi (PETS) limousine taxis. The vehicles are being repossessed by Public Bank Berhad.

The memorandum claimed that kickbacks were paid to Pempena officials to facilitate refinancing of the 70-odd vehicles. Dalammasa Sdn Bhd, which operates the taxi services for PETS,
has not made any profit for Pempena which gave it RM160,000 to pay drivers.

Kisah nie aku tau 2-3 bulan dulu. Masa tu aku dok melepak kat Club Tasik Putrajaya ada ler satu mamat nie orang kanan Tengku nan di Putrajaya tercerita pasal projek ini.

Sebenarnya ada satu mamat nie tukang masak kat hotel di malaysia dah kahwin dengan pompuan Jerman. Dia dah dok kat Jerman dan nak buka restoran tapi tarak modal tapi ada cable yang linkkan dengan Tengku nan so Tengku Nan yang ujudkan projek nie dan tiap bulan Tengku Nan dapat 40% dari sales tetapi bukan semua restoran under Malaysia kitchen la cuma yang di Jerman saja sebagai imbuhan mamat tu dapat modal guna duit rakyat buka restoran.


Ceita nie aku baca dalam The Sun hari ini paper lain aku tak jumpa lak

Rakyat plak disaran, "tolong ubah cara hidup dgn lebih berhemah..." Bila rakyat bising, dia kata "Polis kata jangan!!!".. Kepala hokak tul..
