S’wak top destination for domestic tourists
by Jonathan Chia, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on July 3, 2012, Tuesday


SYMBOLIC RITUAL: Dawos places an offering to symbolically launch the ‘Kuob Gawea’ 2012 during an open house held in conjunction with the closing of Gawai.
BAU: Sarawak remains the most popular destination among domestic travellers with 22 per cent of them visiting the state last year.
Next is Kuala Lumpur with 18 per cent, followed by Pahang and Johor with 16 per cent, said Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit.
The Mambong MP expressed confidence that the state would register more tourist arrivals if more destinations are developed and promoted.
“If more destinations are developed and promoted, there will be more tourist arrivals to the state,” he said.
Dawos said this during an open house to mark the closing of Gawai, known as Rami Kuob Gawea 2012, at Siniawan Recreational Hall here on Sunday.
The event was jointly organised by Special Affairs Department (Jasa), Mambong parliamentary office, Bengoh Service Centre and the village security and development committees (JKKK) of Kampung Peninjau Baru and Siniawan Bazaar.
During his speech, Dawos pointed out that the tourism industry was the second largest contributor to the country’s economy, contributing about RM83 billion.
“Last year, the arrival of foreign tourists to the country had contributed revenue of RM58.3 billion while domestic tourists contributed RM25 billion,” he said.
On the future of the tourism industry, Dawos said by 2020, the industry is expected to contribute RM168 billion to the country’s economy, which is achievable through new tourism products and intensive promotion.
“The Tourism Ministry is working very hard in order for us to realise these numbers. As a responsible government, this is what we do to increase the people’s income because with the increasing number of tourists’ arrivals, the people will benefit economically,” he added.
He cited Siniawan as a place that could be developed into a popular tourist destination, considering that it is rich in heritage.
“The old shop houses must be preserved as they are rich in heritage. I have instructed the JKKK in this area to maintain the facade of the shop houses,” he added.
Besides preserving the heritage, Dawos also advised the JKKK to come up with a detailed proposal on how to develop Siniawan to be a popular tourism spot.
He also advised rural folk to think of ways to be involved in the tourism industry.

RM100 mln State Islamic Complex almost complete
Posted on July 3, 2012, Tuesday


NEW LANDMARK: Daud (second right) with Shebli (right), Putit (left) and others examine the building plan in front of the complex.
KUCHING: The State Islamic Complex at Jalan P Ramlee is expected for completion by October this year.
As of yesterday it was 89 per cent complete, said Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Islamic Affair), Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman.
Daud said the general structure of the RM100 million building was almost complete with contractors doing the final touchup.
“Despite being behind schedule due to several design amendment, we are confident that tenants of the building can occupy it by February next year,” Daud said when met at the construction site yesterday.
The delay, he said, had pushed the completion date from February to October but technical changes made would give a better final outcome.
He revealed that two stories of commercial lot featuring 74 retail lots open for tenancy on the first and ground floor of the building had been taken.
“The rest of the floors will be for Islamic-related agencies in the state, a library, and the district and residence’s office which will be relocated away from its current building,” he elaborated.
The State Islamic Complex located on a 2.07 acre land has modern contemporary design combined with Islamic and local concept for its interior and exterior design. Also present were State Islamic Council president Datu Putit Matzen and Sarawak Baitulmal Fund (TBS) general manager Abang Shebli Abang Senusi.

I think its a brilliant idea, if they can create a unique performance show it can become a tourist magnate just like the tiffany show for pattaya, thailand.

"...but is world famous for the Tiffany's Show. What's surprising though is, in Thailand, the Tiffany's Show is often seen as a family show. When I was teaching Thai teenagers, I was amazed at how many of them had been taken to the Tiffany's Show by their parents or family friends. It is also touted as one of Thailand's most popular tourist attractions and many tour companies run trips to Pattaya just to see the show.

They can create a show performing Iban, Malay and Chinese dances and their histories in Sarawak, including the brooke era.

Chatime rides on increasing spending power, tea culture in Malaysia
by Ronnie Teo, ronnieteo@theborneopost.com. Posted on July 2, 2012, Monday


KUCHING: Renowned tea brand Chatime is set to expand its market share in the food and beverage industry here in Malaysia, riding on the increasing awareness of modern tea and higher spending power in the country.
LOOB Holdings Sdn Bhd, owned by Byran Loo in an interview with The Borneo Post revealed his plans to open another 50 outlets nationwide by the third quarter of this year.
“We have another few months to go, and we have another 13 more outlets in the pipeline,” he said in a telephone interview. “To date, we have already opened up about 36 to 38 outlets nationwide. I am very confident that all this is achievable.”
Meanwhile, Chatime is also set to penetrate the market here in Sabah and Sarawak. Loo had confidence in the market here in East Malaysia.
“We’ve already received 400 to 500 job applications and franchise proposals from East Malaysia,” he affirmed. “So, there is quite a bit of demand there.
“I am pretty sure that a lot of people are quite excited about our expansion towards East Malaysia, and looking at our pipeline, we hope to achieve at least 10 outlets in East Malaysia by year end or early next year.
“So far, I am personally targeting 15 outlets in Sabah and Sarawak, we have secured a few places in Sarawak which would be City One, The Spring and The Summer shopping malls,” he revealed. “As for Sabah, we have already secured a location at City Mall.”
The entrepreneur spoke of his initial scepticism for introducing Chatime in Malaysia as coffee was the major drink dominating the beverage market.
“At first, I was not too confident,” he said. “Hanging out in places like coffee houses/cafes seems to be the trend.
“However, I’m sure that we will be able to cultivate drinking tea into the modern culture of Malaysia – slowly but surely.”
Loo highlighted Chatime utilising 100 per cent tea leaves to brew their tea as its key selling point, unlike other bubble tea brands which use powder flavouring.
“This makes our product healthier. Even the pearls are made from organic brown sugar, which gives more flavour and fragrance. It is also a healthier choice.”
Currently, Chatime is in the process of obtaining the halal accreditation by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim). From this, Chatime would have more exposure and confidence among local Muslim consumers.
“We are only in the midst of applying for our halal certification. This is also for our Kelantan and Terengganu customers who require that halal certificate. If this goes through, we are looking at a 50 per cent increase of our outlets.”

Too bad isn't it. Even though, we generated more income for the country.

Resource rich and with almost all the forest trees chopped down, today Sarawak has no money for a highway. We all know what it is: corruption in the state and federal level leaves BN STATES PENNILESS....but the pockets of politicians and cronies are loaded. People should wake up.

But you guys are not alone. It's the same in Johor too.

That is a very lame excuse.If they really do not have enough budget to do it all at a single time,they still can can do it step by step.I mean that we can build a highway which connecting a certain remote concertrated satellites town first before we do it all for the whole state.For example, we build a four-lanned highway which connecting Serian to Sibu first,then Sibu to Bintulu and eventually we will achieve Miri.We don't mind if the project and construction willl take a long time as long as there is a progress.2 lanned highway is not safe especially there is a vehicle trying to overtake a bigger lorries.

Waterfront-BCCK boat services in 2013
by Lim How Pim, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on July 6, 2012, Friday

KUCHING: Boat services from the Kuching Waterfront to Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) will begin a year from now.
Tourism Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said a contractor is currently completing the unique boat at the Sibu Dockyard, details of which would be announced later.
He said the new service would give conference delegates from outside Sarawak a distinctive experience.
“It will be something unique Sarawak can offer. While waiting for the boat to be ready, the jetty at BCCK should also be ready in a year.
“We want to enable conference delegates to commute between the city and BCCK by boat, avoiding the traffic jam and offering them a whole new experience. They can even have breakfast on the boat.
“It will be like taking the boat service from Kowloon to the island in Hong Kong. But you see concrete jungle in Hong Kong, yet in Sarawak, you see natural jungle,” he told a news conference after opening the ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter Client/Supplier Business Workshop yesterday.
In his speech, Abang Johari said foreign delegates should not miss visiting Bako National Park and Tanjung Datu National Park near here.
“Sarawak is a place for people to attend meetings and seminars, at the same time offering adventure. We want to share the beauty of Kuching with the rest of the world.”
Meanwhile, ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter chairman Martin Winter described Kuching as a dynamic and progressive city.
Winter, who is also chief executive officer of Gold Coast Tourism, Australia, also lauded BCCK as a rising star in the Southeast Asia industry.
