Tun Mustapha Park, Malaysia's largest marine park, officially launched

KUDAT: Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman launched Tun Mustapha Park (TMP), Malaysia's biggest marine park, here today.

The park, spanning approximately 898762.76 hectares, promises better marine protection and conservation in this part of the world. It was declared a protected area under the Sabah Parks Enactment 1984 by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sabah Tun Juhar on May 19.

Speaking to the local community and tourists, Musa said the success of the gazettement was part of the state government's efforts in advancing the people's socio-economy through various sectors.

"This is a historical event for us. With the establishment of this large marine park, Malaysia's commitment in the Convention of Biological Diversity, United Nations Environment Programme to protect at least 10 per cent of the marine and coastal area can be achieved by 2020." Present at the launch of the TMP were State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun and assistant minister Datuk Pang Yuk Ming, and State Special Tasks Minister Datuk Teo Chee Kang.

In 2003, the TMP was proposed by the Sabah government shortly after it was recognised as a globally-significant priority marine conservation area. The marine park is located off the districts of Kudat, Kota Marudu and Pitas right up to the Balabac Strait.

It is also is situated within the Coral Triangle which is a six million sq km marine area that directly sustains and protects more than 120 million people in coastal communities across Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste.

With its declaration, the size of protected marine parks in Sabah now stretches to about two million hectares along with the Tun Sakaran Marine Park and the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

Meanwhile, Masidi said the six marine parks under Sabah Parks would be part of a sanctuary in an effort to protect the shark population.

"We will start the initiative of the creation of a shark sanctuary by educating the people so they too have ownership of the programme. "I must admit that one of the reasons why there seems to be an apparent failure in wildlife protection is perhaps we have not done enough to educate the village folks on conservation. "I believe the people need to feel passionate enough to be part of the system; that is what we need to emphasise in the enforcement of the shark sanctuary in all marine parks in Sabah."

E-Visa Implementation For Sri Lankan Tourists To Be Finalised In November - Ahmad Zahid

COLOMBO (Sri Lanka), July 22 (Bernama) -- An agreement has been reached to implement e-Visa for Sri Lankan tourists visiting Malaysia and this is expected to be finalised in November, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, expressed the hope that the matter could be finalised when Malaysia attends an international meeting in Sri Lanka in November.

"Although we have had a soft launch of the e-Visa system, we hope to finalise its implementation in November when either the Prime Minister or I will be attending an international Islamic conference in Sri Lanka," he said at the end of a two-day working visit to this South Asian country, here today.

To a question on the influx of Sri Lankan tourists to Malaysia, Ahmad Zahid said of late the number had decreased.

As such, he said to encourage more Sri Lankan tourists to visit the country Tourism Malaysia could increase awareness on tourist attractions and activities available in Malaysia through aggressive promotions and advertising.


On cooperation in tackling terrorism, Ahmad Zahid said Malaysia had offered Sri Lanka to send its officials from enforcement agencies for training in Malaysia.

On the possibility of foreign countries like Sri Lanka having the perception that crime was increasing in Malaysia, Ahmad Zahid said since 2014, the crime rate was reduced by between 45 to 50 per cent.

This he said was due to the various programmes including enforcement activities conducted, but sadly when the crime rate decreased, the people's perception did not change.

Speaking on the demand for Sri Lankan workers in Malaysia, Ahmad Zahid said among others the government needed to examine existing rules as well as consider the workers' qualifications from this country.

He said Sime Darby for instance had asked for 5,000 workers to replace the Bangladeshi and Indonesian workers who had been working in their plantation sector.

Ahmad Zahid said the two-day visit had left a deep impression on him and had been meaningful in the context of bilateral cooperation and business relations.

In fact he added, the Sri Lankan government had classified the working visit as an official visit.

Meanwhile Ahmad Zahid and his wife Datin Seri Hamidah Khamis departed for Malaysia from the Bandaranaike International Airport, Colombo at about 2.30pm (5pm in Malaysia).

During his working visit today, apart from visiting the Asia Pacific Institute for Information Technology (APIIT) he also attended a Malay Islamic World (DMDI) gathering held at a hotel here.

KL-Singapore High Speed Rail slated to commence in 2026

The governments of Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to a slew of measures for the development of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) at a MoU signing ceremony held yesterday.


Foremost in the agreement is the projected start date of HSR operations by 2026. Construction is expected to take place between 2018 and 2025, and a year of testing will be undertaken before service formally starts. Advanced engineering studies are to take place to look into factors such as track alignment and architecture before construction begins.

Tracks will stretch 350km in total, 335km of which will be in Malaysia. Eight stations will service the line, namely Singapore, Iskandar Puteri, Batu Pahat, Muar, Ayer Keroh, Seremban, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur.

The HSR, set to boast trains with top speeds of 300km/h and a capacity of around 1000 passengers, is expected to cut travel time between Singapore and the Malaysian capital down to about 90 minutes from the current 11 hours via existing rail services.

Malaysia and Singapore will each be responsible for the construction and maintenance of the civil infrastructure and stations within their own countries, specifically MyHSR Corporation and the Land Transport Authority respectively.

An assets company, to be appointed through international tender, will provide and maintain HSR trains and its associated systems such as power, signalling and telecommunications.

There will also be two train operators appointed, one to run the international routes (the 90-minute nonstop Singapore-Kuala Lumpur express service and the 15-minute Singapore-Iskandar Puteri shuttle service) and another to run a domestic service within Malaysia.

Plans are also in place to co-locate customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) facilities at three locations – Singapore, Iskandar Puteri and Kuala Lumpur – so that international-bound passengers will need to undergo CIQ clearance by both Malaysia and Singapore authorities only at the point of departure, and not at the point of arrival, thus requiring passengers to go through checks only once.

A legally binding agreement for the development of the HSR is set to be signed at the end of this year.

Tourism Malaysia & MAB Collaborate To Promote Tourism

PUTRAJAYA, 18 July 2016 – Tourism Malaysia and Malaysia Airlines Berhad have renewed their collaboration in the interest of tourism in Malaysia. 


Through the collaboration, Malaysia Airlines will sponsor flight tickets to bring in foreign media and tour agents, under Tourism Malaysia’s Mega Familiarisation Programme, from the United Kingdom and Asia, ASEAN, and Oceania regions.
The projects and programmes in this collaboration will begin in July and end by December 2016.
The Mega Familiarisation Programme is one of Tourism Malaysia’s most effective efforts to generate wide publicity on Malaysia as a preferred leisure and business destination and boost the country’s tourist arrivals and receipts. It is the most cost-effective way to promote Malaysia as it garners the support of industry players to subsidise the cost of the programme through various sponsorship of air fares, accommodation, and ground support.
Introduced in the year 2000, the programme provides first-hand information and experience of the various tourist destinations and tourism products in Malaysia to the participants, comprising representatives of the international travel trade, journalists, travel writers, corporate house buyers and planners. Many successful tour packages and articles have been produced as a result of this programme.
Besides attending the respective events and tours, the Mega Fam participants are also required to attend a half-day tourism briefing and a travel mart, which provides a platform for the participants and local industry players to network and establish business opportunities.
Last year, Tourism Malaysia brought in 904 Mega Fam participants to the country, in conjunction with 15 major festivals and tourism events. A total of 50,542 Mega Fam participants have attended the programme from 2000 to 2015.

India to be sixth largest business travel market by 2019: GBTA


India will jump four spots to become the world’s sixth largest corporate travel market in the next five years, based on forecasts in a Visa-sponsored report by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Foundation.

GBTA also expects India to leapfrog Brazil this year and surpass both South Korea and Italy in 2017.

This latest semi-annual GBTA BTI Outlook India report projects a growth of 10.7 per cent in business travel spending for the market in 2016 followed by another 10.2 per cent the following year. 

Domestic spending would be the key driver of India's overall business travel performance, which is expected to grow 11.5 per cent in 2016 and 10.3 per cent in 2017, the report stated.

With international outbound travel being more volatile, GBTA reckons global travel spend will move forward just 3.1 per cent in 2016. But an improved global economy and brightening prospects for increased trade activity will help push international outbound spending further forward in 2017, by a projected 9 per cent.

Commenting on the results, Gaurav Sundaram, GBTA India regional director, said: “If it continues on its current path, India is poised to be a world leader in business travel for decades to come. 

“The growth rate of business travel in India is on par with other leading industries in the country, showing once again how business travel is playing an important role as a driver of economic growth and jobs.”

Perak to boost tourism with two more theme parks


IPOH: The Perak government plans to have two more theme parks in Bandar Meru Raya to boost its tourism industry.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir said after a mee­ting with Perak State Develop­ment Corporation, it was decided that one would be a water-based and the other, a jungle-based theme park.
“The jungle or forest theme park is a new idea by the corporation,” he said after attending a Hari Raya open house at Casuarina@Meru Hotel yesterday.
"It will be based on our beautiful forest reserves in Kledang Saiong Eco Forest Park here," he added.
“We will then have three theme parks here,” Zambry said, adding that the first theme park was in Bandar Meru Raya – the Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS).
“With three theme parks, we hope tourists will stay longer in Perak,” he said, adding the RM500mil MAPS was expected to be operational in December.
“We will focus on MAPS first, then the water theme park and lastly, the jungle-based park,” he said, adding that all three theme parks were estimated to cost about RM1bil.
“With Ipoh on the world map now, the theme parks will be our ‘game changer’ to bring in more revenue.”

Mencari Sumaiyah - Sebuah Teater Muzikal @ Istana Budaya Kuala Lumpur ( 8 ~ 14 Ogos 2016 )

Selamat datang ke tahun 1999 di Kampung Rukun! Penduduk-penduduk Kampung Rukun amat bersyukur dengan semua sumber semulajadi dan segala yang tersedia untuk mereka di kampung itu.

Penduduknya semua dikenali kerana berpakaian cantik dan segak, tak kira apapun pekerjaan mereka; penjual kuih, nelayan, penoreh getah, suri rumah, kesemuanya berpakaian cantik. Terima kasih kepada empat orang tukang jahit dan pereka fesyen tetap Kampung Rukun iaitu Zaitun, Faridah, Mariam dan Salmi.

Pada satu hari, kedai jahit Zaitun, Faridah, Mariam dan Salmi didatangi seorang pelanggan dari Kuala Lumpur. Pelanggan tersebut menyaksikan bakat mereka yang begitu sofistikated tetapi hairan dengan kesederhanaan kedai mereka. Pelanggan tersebut mencadangkan agar mereka memohon geran untuk peniaga kecil di Kuala Lumpur bagi melebarkan lagi sayap mereka.

Dari sinilah mereka bermula untuk melangkah keluar dari zon selesa di kampung dan berhijrah ke kesibukan kota Kuala Lumpur.

Dalam mereka mengejar impian, nilai persahabatan mereka akan menemui pelbagai ujian. Dapatkah mereka mengharunginya atau adakah mereka akan berputus-asa? Persahabatan, perpaduan dan kegigihan adalah antara nilai-nilai yang akan dipaparkan di dalam teater muzikal ini.

Ikuti suka-duka perjalanan empat sahabat ini dalam Mencari Sumaiyah.

Beliau berkata, program yang merupakan inisiatif Biro Hal Ehwal Bandar dan Perumahan Pemuda UMNO berjaya menarik perhatian sebanyak 270 pemilik supercar termasuk 40 orang dari Singapura menyertai perlumbaan kali ini.

Penang endorsed as world's best food destination by renowned food writer

GEORGE TOWN: Penang has once again topped the chart as a world food destination over other places including Bangkok and Paris with the endorsement of world-renowned food writer, James Oseland.

Oseland, 53, is an American food writer, magazine editor and reality cooking show judge who is currently in Penang until July 20 with the mission to find the best food in Penang to be featured in his upcoming book.

The journalist-turned-food writer since more than 20 years ago, said that interest in cooking had always been in him as it was the only way that made him closer to his father.

“My mom wasn’t a great cook but my dad is. Hence, by cooking, our relationship became closer as we share the same interest,” he said in an interview at The Ghouse’s residence in Jalan Makloom, here, today.

Oseland who is in Penang for the fifth time, his first being in 1982, said that even as time passed, the food quality here was still the same despite the surroundings having changed a lot with more high-rise buildings than before.

“It is wonderful how the food is being cooked; the atmosphere is simply amazing and the competition between eateries to serve the best food makes them maintain the quality.

“If I have to choose the top three places in the world as a food destination, Penang would definitely be the first, followed by Mexico City and London,” he said.

For his new book which he expects to be published in the next two and a half years, Oseland said he would focus on traditional home-cooked food as it was the best way to understand one’s culture.

“As time passes, the young generation, especially, has no interest in learning the original recipes as people tend to take food for granted. That is why I want to document these recipes to ensure that the culture will live on,” he said.

Since his first day in Penang on July 15, Oseland said that his favourite food here so far had been Penang-style nasi campur, nasi kandar and hawker food such as chee cheong fun (rice noodle rolls).

While here, Oseland has also learned how to cook ‘nasi kenduri’ with Sabrina Ghouse, a local chef who cooks for weddings and other celebrations.

On how he planned to keep the food taste authentic, as Westerners and Penangites had different ways of cooking and different tastes, Oseland said he had a gift of remembering how every food tasted and knew if it was different from others.

As he will be leaving Penang in two days before heading to Kedah and then flying off to Indonesia and Timor Leste, Oseland who could speak a little bit of Bahasa Melayu said, “Pulau Pinang sentiasa di hati” (Penang is always in my heart) and has vowed to come again after he completes his book.

Fernandes urged passengers to share their travel moments with the airline on social media using the “#travelgr8” hashtag.
AirAsia X Group CEO Datuk Kamarudin Meranun said winning the awards for several consecutive years proved that being a low-cost airline did not mean the service provided was of low quality.

Guests travelling on Premium Flatbeds can enjoy priority check-in, priority boarding, priority baggage, 40kg baggage allowance and complimentary meals as well as a pillow and duvet.
