Our Internet papparazzi, a.k.a bloggers, have been going to town literally exposing “AP Kings”. According to one blog, the former MITI employee, Syed Azman Syed Ibrahim, is the king of kings, with a total of 32,062 APs (The Malay Mail, July 28) – as the Chinese say, chia bay leow (“eat also cannot finish”)! One blog posted a picture of the AP King’s second home, allegedly a 28 million ringgit house at Ampang complete with a helipad, which is still under construction. The first home, also with a helipad, is said to be in Bukit Antarabangsa. The man is said to possess three helicopters but they didn’t say how many Ferraris or Massaratis.
Jeff Ooi blogged today with pictures of the two AP King’s homes.
Haniff Abdul Aziz’s home has every single metal fitting on his house plated with gold. The land of his house alone costs RM 5 million. His entire house is estimated to be worth RM 30 million.
Syed Azman has two homes featured. The first one is still under construction. It’s being built at 3 lots at Taman TAR in Ampang.
His other home in Bukit Antarabangsa looks like an office complex. Reminds me of the incubator buildings at Technology Park. The house and land costs and estimated RM 28 million. There are helipads at the first home, and the second home at Taman TAR also has helipads under construction.
Syed Azman has three helicopters and uses them for recreation, like going to have a game for golf. Each time he goes and comes back from his golf games, residents of Bukit Antarabangsa pray that the helicopter does not crash down on their homes.
Throw a stone at the residents there and you'll definitely hit one with the prefix 'Datuk' or 'Datin'.

And remember the Highland Towers Tragedy verdict?
Ah, and where's Semi Value when we need him with his golden quote 'Act of God'?
Yes, karma kameleon indeed.
