SEREMBAN (芙蓉 | formerly Sungei Ujong) | Negeri Sembilan | State Capital City




Negeri Sembilan translated literally means "Nine States," so named because it comprises a federation of nine states. It is located on the south-west corner of Peninsular Malaysia and encompasses an area of 6,645 sq km including a 48-km gentle coastline. Seremban, the capital of Negeri Sembilan, is 64 km south of Kuala Lumpur.

Negeri Sembilan is noted for its Minangkabau-styled architecture, reflecting the influence of the State's first inhabitants from Sumatra.

Makeover for Seremban park
Thursday February 9, 2006
By NURUL HUDA MOHD SHAH


Cultural performances, chalets and even a man-made waterfall. These are among the new attractions coming up for folk in Seremban when one of its more famous parks, Taman Rimba, is given a makeover.

It will also be renamed Taman Malaysia.

“We are building a stage where cultural performances can be held. Organisers will not have to pay anything to hold a performance there, so long as they have our permission, This is to encourage more social interaction with the public,” said Seremban Municipal Council president Abdul Halim Abdul Latif.

“We are not focusing on making profit, it is more about providing good facilities to those living in Negri Sembilan,” he added.










“We are also building chalets where families can stay the night. The park will not only be just another place to jog but also a place to go for a vacation and to enjoy stage performances. There will be more things for people to do,” Abdul Halim said in an interview recently.

He hoped the new facilities would draw more tourists to the park, which is part of the Seremban Lake Gardens. It is already a popular haunt among joggers and families especially in the evenings.

Abdul Halim said there would be more landscaping done for the area including putting up “name tags” for the trees planted at Taman Malaysia.

“This will enable school children to know the names of all the trees in the area,” he added.

Abdul Halim said work on the park had started and was expected to be completed this August.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan is expected to open the new park.

Negri harbours high hopes in tourism
Friday March 3, 2006
By R.SN. MURALI


THE Negri Sembilan government is working hard to turn the tourism sector into the second biggest revenue contributor to the state’s gross domestic product (GDP) over the next 10 years.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said to achieve the target, the state government had set up a task force headed by State Secretary Datuk Abdullah Sani Abd Hamid.

“Representatives from several government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and hotel operators will be included in the task force so they could also act as catalyst to expedite the goal, “ Mohamad told reporters after chairing the weekly state exco meeting in Seremban on Wednesday.

Mohamad said the state Economic Planning Unit was now tasked with monitoring all tourism products, formerly the responsibility of local governments.

This, he said, was to enable the development and profiling of each tourism product and tap new ones in a more efficient manner.

“We are targeting 30% contribution from the tourism sector to the state’s GDP over the next 10 years,” he said adding that presently the industry accounted for 10% of the state’s revenue.

Mohamad noted that 4.4 million tourists visited the state last year and the number could be increased with intense promotions and developing more interesting places for tourists.

On the construction of Hard Rock Cafe in Jalan Pantai, Port Dickson, Mohamad said work on the project had not started as the local franchise holder was still waiting for the green light from the United States.

CCTVs keep an eye out for crime in Seremban
Tuesday March 7, 2006
By R.S.N. MURALI



VIGILANT eyes are keeping watch round-the-clock in Seremban, Negri Sembilan, through newly installed CCTV cameras at strategic locations.

Law-breakers will not be able to escape as their illegal actions will be recorded by the computer system.

Negri Sembilan police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the cameras were installed as part of the state police's crime prevention efforts.

recently as SAC Khalid (right) watches him.







“The cameras will be on 24 hours and any suspicious movements will be captured by the system,” he said after the launch of Rakan Cops programme at Jusco Seremban Two recently.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan launched the programme.

At the event, the state police’s Rapid Action Team and the police air unit displayed their skills in combating crime.

SAC Khalid said the CCTV control centre at the police headquarters would be manned by personnel round the clock.

They would work closely with patrol units.

“The camera units at other locations will be added gradually,” he said.

On the Rakan Cop programme, SAC 1 Khalid said so far it had been effective in thwarting crime in the state.

He said 264 members of the public had registered as Rakan Cop associates.

Negri Sembilan police solved almost half of all crime cases last year, making them the state contingent with the highest crime-solving rate.

Heard from a Negri contractor years ago, that the NS state government wants to move to an area close to the Seremban 2 township, as in that they want to build a new state administrative capital there, following Putrajaya's footsteps. Its the area between Seremban 2 and Rasah Kemayan. Does anyone know anything about this? Is all talk?

Rembau, you're a Negri man, do you know anything about this?

Committee set up to look at Negri transport
Saturday March 11, 2006
By R.S.N.MURALI



A SPECIAL committee to oversee the quality of public transportation in Negri Sembilan has been set up by the state government.

State Public Transport and Co-operative development committee chairman Datuk Zakaria Nordin said the committee had been tasked to provide detailed reports and suggestions to improve the standard of public transportation in the state.

“They will be also responsible to underline new routes which are not currently serviced by transport providers,” he said after meeting with a group of transport providers in Seremban recently.

Also present was his deputy Chan Kee Voon, who is also the state assemblyman for Bukit Kepayang.

Zakaria said the committee have been asked to study how to improve the Seremban-Kuala Lumpur public transport route, as some 50,000 people commute daily to work in the Federal Capital.

“The route is salient due to the volume of the commuters while the transport companies servicing the destination should give priority to passenger comfort,” he said.

Zakaria said the committee has also been directed to provide feedback on whether transport providers should replace old vehicles on popular routes, particularly in tourist areas like Port Dickson.

“Some of the vehicles, especially buses, in Port Dickson are too obsolete and need to be refurbished or replaced,” he said.

Zakaria said the committee would also give pointers on bus stops.

“The committee will also look at feeder buses at certain locations like at the KTMB station where train passengers could directly reach their homes without having to hop onto stage buses at the Terminal One bus complex, which is some distance from the railway station,” he explained.

Some of the government machineries have moved to Seremban 2, namely the courts, police HQ, Fire Dept HQ. Not too sure about the rest of the government institutions.It is still in the early part of development so lots of barren ground and not enough trees.

Maybe the pace of development may be more like Shah Alam rather than Putrajaya. But at least it has the advantage of being in close proximity to the existing part of Seremban.

Will post more as I have more info.

Yes yes please post more if you have info!

When was this that they move some of the state machinery? Where is it? Do you have any pictures? I was told it would be nestled between, Seremban 2, Oakland Industrial park and Rasah Kemayan estate? If you've driven past Seremban 2, on the way to Rasah Kemayan, there's that clear barren empty strech of plots of land, last I was there there was a grid like road structure. Is this where the "courts, police HQ, Fire Dept HQ" have moved to?

One-stop decor centre in Seremban
Story and pix by CHARLES FERNANDEZ
Monday April 17, 2006


THE mention of Chow Kit in Kuala Lumpur and brings back memories for Tey Lee Kwee, as it was where he first started his business specialising in carpets, rugs and wall carpeting.

He gave up the business to his brother ten years ago and started a similar business in Kajang before moving to Seremban and today he can lay claim to the only Home Decor Centre in town.







The interior of CHC Comfort Home Centre in Seremban.





Located along busy Jalan Datuk Bandar Tunggal, the CHC Comfort Home Centre is a one- stop centre where one can be spoilt for choice.

The shop has got a peculiar facade that is sure to attract one's attention and it is rather difficult to miss because it stands out from the other shops along the same row.

CHC originally began as a carpet shop and since competition was stiff because of more established outlets dealing with the same products, Tey opened another outlet five doors away selling home decorations.

Early last month, he moved his carpet business to the second outlet and called it the CHC Comfort Home Centre to provide customers one-stop convenience.

“Most of my customers used to source home decorative items in Kuala Lumpur and they say they can get what they are looking for at my outlet and at lower prices too,'' said Tey.







Carved wooden mushrooms and ducks are popular
decorative items available at the centre.







The decorative items at CHC Comfort Home are neatly placed and the uniqueness of the products is what makes the centre so appealing.

Most of the items available can be found in other similar outlets in the big cities but the difference is in the price.

“We source many of our goods from Asian countries like China, Taiwan and Thailand.

“There are no middlemen involved and we are able to offer customers bargain prices,'' said Tey.

The busiest time for Tey is during lunch break when a continuous flow of customers, some serious buyers and some there to steal ideas on how to decorate their homes.








This corner contains all the necessary decorations for Christmas.






Tey said if customers were looking for carpets, curtains, venetian blinds, rugs, wall carpets, wall papers, they can head upstairs and downstairs is basically simple decorative items.

The Centre is open daily from 9.30am-8.30pm. Sunday is a rest-day. For details call: 06-7670899/019-6511886

Temple opens doors after RM1.5mil facelift
Saturday May 6, 2006



The Sri Maha Raja Rajeswarar temple in
Taman Tuanku Jaafar, Seremban.



A magnificent Hindu temple in Seremban, Negri Sembilan, opened its doors to devotees after a consecration ceremony held early last month.

The temple with splendid architectural design is brightly lit and easily noticed even from a distance.

Sri Maha Raja Rajeswarar temple went through renovation works some years ago and was completed recently at the cost of RM1.5mil.

Donors as far as the United States, Belgium, Scotland, Australia and Indonesia contributed to the building fund.

The temple was founded in 1917 by workers at a site where they noticed a ray of light while clearing a dense jungle for a rubber plantation.

The workers erected a zinc shed and began praying at the site.

The shed was replaced by a concrete building in the 1970s through the effort of a female devotee.

A decade later, the estate was bought over by a housing developer who decided to present the land, on which the temple is sited, to the devotees.
