We first visited Rumah Caring Kajang in January 2012, and had kept in touch with Wendy Yap the caretaker since then. We were made aware during that visit that the neighbours staying nearby were not happy with the operations of Rumah Caring Kajang, which caused difficulties in renewing their MBKJ license.
