Port Dickson refinery holds recycling drive and tree-planting programme
Tuesday November 11, 2008
By C.S. NATHAN



Helping to save the environment: Raja Ahmad Murad ( second from right)
launching a recyling campaign at the opening of the Health, Safety, Security
and Environment (HSSE) Week in Port Dickson. With him are representatives
from NGOs and local residents associations.



The Shell Refining Company Bhd (SRC) in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan, may have won many awards for its commitment to safety and the environment, but its employees are not about to rest on their laurels.

To ensure these are not compromised, employees have been reminded to remain focused towards a “goal zero target” which includes zero injury, zero significant incidents and zero fatalities and to protect the environment.

Shell chairman Datuk Saw Choo Boon gave this reminder during the company’s annual Health, Safety, Security and the Environment (HSSE) Week recently.

Saw said Shell Malaysia was doing its part in addressing environmental issues, hence its focus on the environment for the 2008 HSSE week.

“For this year, the HSSE committee has decided to focus on a much talked about subject — the environment. At Shell, we often talk about the three hard truths which remind us that the demand for energy is growing rapidly, the supply of conventional oil will struggle to keep up with this growing demand, and that carbon dioxide emissions from energy sources will rise.

“Understanding these three hard truths is important — doing something about it is critical,” he said.

The refinery in Port Dickson won the Malaysian Business “Corporate Social Responsibility Awards” 2007 in the environment category, Environmental Award at the Prime Minister’s Hibiscus 2006/2007 Award for Notable Achievement and the Negri Sembilan Award for its environmental management performance in the state.

Held simultaneously with Shell’s plants and offices nationwide, the HSSE Week (Oct 21-24) was part of the company’s efforts towards building a strong safety culture as an integral part of its business.

Saw said the company had won awards for its efforts to protect the environment and it was proof the company was doing its bit for the environment.

“This recognition is testament to our efforts in 2007 to reduce the carbon footprint of our operations,” he said.

At the launch, SRC managing director Raja Ahmad Murad highlighted the HSSE performance and achievements at the company’s operations in Port Dickson.

“We have achieved a major safety milestone here — that is the achievement of nine million exposure hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI) in July and there were no spill incidents in Port Dickson this year.

“The Port Dickson refinery also won the grand award at the Malaysian Society for Occupational Safety and Health (MSHOSH) Awards this year,” he said.

Raja Ahmad said the company’s safety performance had also been commendable as there were no major safety or environmental incidents involving its employees or contractors.

A recycling campaign was launched at the opening of the HSSE week.

The 11th Hour, an environmental documentary, was screened for the benefit of guests, who included Shell employees, representatives from government agencies, non-governmental organisations as well as local residents associations.

Presentations on gas cylinder safety at home, safe handling of lubricants and road safety were also held during the week.

For the benefit of schools, SRC also organised an environmental seminar for students which included talks on the environment, a video session, a quiz and an art competition.

A tree-planting programme was also carried out at Sekolah Datuk Haji Abdul Samad, Port Dickson.

Spa above the sea
By PATSY KAM


Experience the first floating spa in Malaysia.

THE concept of a spa can be misleading given today’s interpretation. Some people reckon as long as there are a few scented candles in the room and flower petals in a bath tub, you’ve got a spa going.

Aspects of well-being and an ambience of relaxation should be deemed essential for a spa. The Oxford dictionary defines a spa as “a resort providing therapeutic baths or mineral springs” or a “fashionable hotel”.


On air: The balcony just outside the lounge area in Avi Spa, Avillion Hotel, Port Dickson. It goes almost one full circle and the water feature with infinity edge surrounding it gives the impression that one is suspended above the water.

The Avi Spa at Avillion Port Dickson is a bit of both. It’s also probably the only floating spa in Malaysia, built above water, located at the very furthest of the resort on the Straits of Malacca.

Avi is the brainchild of director Gricia Gan who worked with Axis Network Design Consultants, the same interior design company that worked on the hotel 10 years ago, to realise her concept.

The spa is divided into three venues – avi lounge; avi spa suites that offer seven luxury suites including two rooms for couples and a premium suite; and avi spa space.

Owned and managed by the Avillion Hotel Group, the word “avi” means sun in Sanskrit and also denotes the first two syllables of the hotel’s name. Thus, it seems only fitting that the spa should be all about light.

“The interior offers a play of light and space, and serves to let in the element of nature,” explains Gan.


Sheer bliss: The twin treatment room at Avi Spa, Port Dickson where clients can sip tea on the balcony after enjoying their treatment.

Hence the generous use of glass in the reception and the lounge areas, which are framed by glass walls on one side to reveal the open sea. The glass doors at the lounge open to a gorgeous circular balcony framed by an infinity-edged fountain.

This uniquely designed relaxation area gives one the sensation that you’re “floating” above the sea and is set to be the primary attraction of the spa as guests will surely be drawn to the open concept, barring rainy days, of course.

Canvas sheets imported from Germany make up the high roof of the 650.32sqm double-storey pavilion from which hangs a contemporary central light styled after a chandelier.

“Thanks to the white canvas which gives a lighter touch to the design, the imposing height of the ceiling isn’t so obvious.


Panoramic view: Clients can look out to the sea while sipping ginger tea after their treatment on the balcony outside the treatment rooms.

“This spa is really a modern translation of the kampung house, after which the chalets are styled, done in white. This way, you get a brighter and more spacious effect,” she adds.

Traditional dark wood would have infused a heavier mood to the ambience. Nonetheless, the wood grain is carried through in the design and there is a clever mix of textures as seen in the use of timber, glass, the soft furnishing and mod furniture. Italian tiles on the sides of the bar counter resemble the old-style Malaccan peranakan tiles and were specially chosen for their antique edge.

The clean and simple lines decor of the spa come off looking stylish and contemporary, refreshingly different from the many Balinese-styled spas around town today.

The Avi Spa is littered with deck chairs and footstools where enthusiastic therapists offer hand or foot massages if so required. This is more of a private pampering station suitable for group consultations with friends or private functions.

Facials and body massages are taken up to the next level of luxury in the cosy treatment rooms, and couples or girlfriends can opt to have their treatments together.


Eclectic combo: The Avi Spa is a modern translation of the kampung house in white and modern materials. The roof is specially imported German canvas for a light airy feel.

What’s even more appealing is the thought of sipping ginger tea on the open verandah just outside the room after a relaxing massage, caressed by the sea breeze with a view to match.

“This is more of a relaxation spa, a place for people to unwind. As the hotel is now moving into regional and foreign markets, it is only fitting that we offer more lifestyle services,” adds Gan.

Guests may choose to have a massage, scrub, wrap, bath, hair treatment, manicure or a facial. There’s also special “rituals” offered such as the “velvety batik” or “dondang sayang”.

The spa menu comes in three sections – signature, traditional and marine treatments. The signature treatments are mapped according to one of four moods (valour, ardour, lightness and poise) based on elements of nature: water, earth, wind and fire. They are 100% custom-made from pure essential oil blends and each of the oils are based on an emotion inspired by the four classical elements.

“At Avi Spa, you choose to counter or reinforce an emotion. As such, you don’t just go for a spa treatment – you take home an experience,” says Gan.

Avi traditions are peranakan-inspired treatments with a blend of indigenous ingredients and natural remedies from Malay and Chinese traditions. What’s interesting is that there’s even an adjacent “spa garden” where the herbs used for the treatments such as limau purut (kaffir lime), pandan leaves and basil are home-grown.

For marine goodness, the therapeutic benefits of seawater and algae rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals are in the various body and face treatments offered by the brand Phytomer.

...........wow!!!!!........

Bersantai di kopitiam PD

Oleh JAMLIAH ABDULLAH



Bangi Kopitiam sentiasa mendapat sambutan menggalakkan di kalangan pengunjung dan ia bertambah ketika cuti umum serta hujung minggu di Port Dickson, baru-baru ini.
- Gambar ABD. RAZAK AID

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



PORT DICKSON 28 Dis. - Bersantai atau melepak di kopitiam barangkali bukan sesuatu yang baru di ibu kota dan boleh diandaikan seperti satu kecenderungan di kalangan warga kota dengan lahirnya banyak kopitiam seperti cendawan pada musim hujan.

Pemandangan yang sama kini berlabuh di Port Dickson iaitu pusat peranginan popular bagi warga kota di hujung minggu dengan pembukaan Bangi Kopitiam di Batu Empat berhampiran Hotel Seri Malaysia.

Bukan itu saja, Bangi Kopitiam yang merupakan salah satu perniagaan francais milik bumiputera semakin mendapat tempat di hati pengunjung pusat peranginan tersebut termasuk pelancong asing dan penduduk tempatan walaupun baru beroperasi sejak dua bulan lalu.

Menurut pemiliknya, Masitah Abdul Mutalib, 45, Bangi Kopitiam mendapat sambutan menggalakkan setiap hari di kalangan pengunjung dan ia bertambah ketika cuti umum serta hujung minggu.

"Sambutan yang diberikan memang menggalakkan barangkali kerana trend orang hari ini suka melepak dan menjamu selera di kopitiam. Lagipun tidak banyak kedai makan seperti ini di Port Dickson kecuali restoran makanan laut atau tomyam.

"Itu pun restoran tersebut dibuka pada lewat petang sedangkan mereka boleh berkunjung ke kopitiam ini dari pukul 10 pagi hingga 2 pagi dengan menu daripada makan pagi sehingga lewat malam," katanya ketika ditemui baru-baru ini.

Katanya, idea untuk membuka kedai makan berkonsepkan kopitiam seperti itu juga bermula daripada pengalamannya sendiri yang merupakan pengunjung setia Port Dickson.

"Saya dan keluarga memang suka berkunjung ke sini pada hujung minggu dan sukar untuk mencari variasi makanan lantas timbul idea untuk membuka kopitiam di sini. Sekurang-kurangnya dapat memberi lebih banyak pilihan kepada pengunjung lain," kata wanita berasal dari Kuala Pilah ini.

Menurut Masitah, beliau dan suaminya, Azizi Md. Sidek, 46, memilih Port Dickson sebagai singgahan terbaru Bangi Kopitiam tersebut kerana menganggap lokasinya sangat tepat.

"Bersesuaian dengan suasana santai di pantai Port Dickson ini, kopitiam seperti ini mungkin akan menjadi pilihan pengunjung untuk bersantai dan menjamu selera bersama keluarga dan rakan-rakan.

"Apatah lagi dengan keunikan konsep Bangi Kopitiam itu sendiri iaitu bersifat menyemarakkan muhibah sesama masyarakat berbilang kaum, di sini kita dapat menyaksikan semua kaum berkumpul," katanya.

Masitah memberitahu, usahanya untuk membangunkan kopitiam seperti itu bagi memenuhi selera variasi pengunjung juga mendapat sokongan daripada Majlis Perbandaran Port Dickson.

"Selain menyediakan lokasi yang strategik, pihak majlis sentiasa memantau perkembangan kami di samping menyediakan pelbagai kemudahan untuk melancarkan operasi seharian," katanya.

Apabila bertapak di pusat peranginan yang sentiasa dikunjungi oleh pelancong asing, kata Masitah, pelbagai menu berkonsepkan masakan tradisional diharapkan mampu menarik perhatian mereka.

"Salah satu yang menarik tentang Bangi Kopitiam bukan saja kerana harganya agak berpatutan berbanding kopitiam lain tetapi menunya yang berkonsepkan tradisional.

"Masakan seperti itu yang selalunya dicari oleh pelancong luar untuk menjamu selera dengan cita rasa orang Malaysia," katanya.

Bukan sembarangan kopitiam, kata Masitah, beliau menaruh harapan agar Bangi Kopitiam itu mampu memenuhi kehendak pengunjung pusat peranginan tersebut terutama ketika mereka menginginkan pelbagai kemudahan bagi menghangatkan lagi percutian masing-masing.

"Bagi saya, ini bukan sekadar kopitiam kerana konsepnya adalah menjalinkan muhibah dan menjenguk nostalgia daripada segi dekorasi dan menu yang disediakan.

"Selain itu saya juga rasa bangga kerana dapat menyertai sebahagian daripada usaha kerajaan negeri untuk menyemarakkan pusat peranginan ini," katanya.

Giving Port Dickson a wide berth

A FEW of my friends from the United States were in Kuala Lumpur recently and I had to take them sight-seeing. Since they were going to be here for only four days, I wanted to take them to the best spots within that limited time frame.

While I was gathering information on the places to see, a friend recommended Port Dickson. I cringed.

"No way. I am not taking them there. They just flew in from Bali (Indonesia) and are heading off to the Maldives after visiting Malaysia.

"They would assume all our beaches are like Port Dickson. I need to give them a good impression of Malaysia," I said.


We went to Teluk Cempadak in Kuantan, Pahang, while on our way to the Kuala Gandah elephant sanctuary.

Suffice to say, mission accomplished. A bunch of happy campers!

I was impressed with the cleanliness of the Teluk Cempadak beach, even though there were a few restaurants in the vicinity including two fast food joints facing the beach. It was a far cry from Port Dickson.

Port Dickson had over the years turned into an ugly duckling and is slowly being given the cold shoulder by local and international tourists despite it having the potential to become a beautiful swan.

The once-upon-a-time esteemed holiday destination has lost its charm because of massive pollution.

Not wanting to be unfair, I asked those who have visited the place or live there for their opinions. Not a single one gave a favourable response.

A resident, who declined to be named, said: "It is like having visitors come into your home, litter and leave without any guilt."

One friend, Subashini MacGuhan, who was born and bred in Port Dickson, said the beaches were cleaner years ago and many still have distinct memories of white sandy beaches especially after the eighth mile.

"Port Dickson has so much potential, it has history. Its Minangkabau culture is unique. It's sad to see this uniqueness fade away leaving behind a beach strewn with rubbish," she said.

Subashini, who lives in Kuala Lumpur, added that she and her family would rather travel to Cherating, Pahang or Terengganu for a beach holiday than go to Port Dickson which is closer to home.

"What puts me off is the haphazard development in the coastal areas. That has not only spoilt the beauty of the beaches, it has also caused massive pollution. Let's not forget the filthy restaurants in Teluk Kemang," added Subashini.

Another friend, Jeff Lim from Kuala Lumpur, said he would rather go to Pulau Redang or Langkawi or even Phuket, Thailand, than spend a weekend in Port Dickson.

"I prefer to spend my money holidaying in places which may be a bit far rather than go to Port Dickson and end up being frustrated with what I see there," said Lim.

While there are various efforts being made by the state government to boost tourism in Port Dickson -- a host of state-of-the-art projects are in the pipeline -- the main concern that needs attention is cleanliness.

Many have blamed the authorities for not keeping the beaches clean but the real culprits here are the holiday- makers.

Despite efforts by the Port Dickson district council to get private companies, non-governmental organisations and residents association to help clean up and educate the public, the problem persists.

The beaches look like a dumpsite especially over the weekends when all kinds of rubbish including diapers, bottles, styrofoam containers and plastic bags are strewn. These could so easily have been disposed of at the numerous rubbish bins.

What baffles me is the attitude of these holiday-makers who assume it is not their responsibility to keep the beaches clean.

Maybe it's time for the authorities to crack the whip and issue heavy penalties on those caught littering. This should include errant beach-side stall owners who dump their rubbish near the beach.

It's sad to see the Port Dickson beaches in the state they are in but unless there are concerted efforts to change, Port Dickson will remain an ugly duckling.

5 syarikat bangunkan Port Dickson
SEREMBAN 6 Feb. - Kerajaan negeri mengenal pasti lima syarikat tempatan serta luar negara yang menunjukkan minat membangunkan beberapa kawasan di Port Dickson bagi merancakkan sektor ekonomi di pusat pelancongan itu.

Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan berkata, rancangan pembangunan berbentuk komprehensif itu tidak akan melibatkan sebarang wang rakyat sebaliknya perbelanjaan daripada pelabur berkenaan.

Jelas beliau, pembangunan di kawasan itu meliputi kemudahan infrastruktur seperti Kompleks Imigresen, Kastam dan Kuarantin (CIQ), pusat marin, dewan konvensyen selain kemudahan para nelayan untuk menjalankan aktiviti perikanan.

"Kita mahu lihat kawasan ini merancakkan lagi sektor ekonomi di Port Dickson dan pada masa yang sama tidak mengetepikan kebajikan rakyat.

"Apa yang saya ingin tegaskan, projek ini tidak libatkan wang kerajaan sebaliknya ia ditanggung sepenuhnya oleh syarikat swasta berkenaan dan kita hanya beri kawasan untuk dimajukan," katanya selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Exco di sini hari ini.

Mohamad juga menjelaskan syarikat-syarikat berkenaan akan dipanggil untuk membentangkan taklimat mengenai projek yang akan dijalankan kepada kerajaan negeri sebelum sebarang keputusan mengenainya diberitahu kelak.

Jelasnya, hanya syarikat yang menepati kehendak kerajaan negeri sahaja akan dilantik untuk menguruskan projek berkenaan.

"Selepas kita berpuas hati dengan pembentangan yang dibuat, kita akan putuskan syarikat mana akan menguruskan projek berkenaan dan yang pasti syarikat tempatan akan dilibatkan bersama sama ada dalam konsortium.

"Hanya syarikat yang menepati kehendak kerajaan negeri saja akan dipilih untuk tujuan itu kerana kita tidak mahu atas sebab pembangunan penduduk tempatan akan menjadi mangsa," kata Mohamad.

Comprehensive Development For Port Dickson, Says MB


SEREMBAN, Feb 6 (Bernama) -- Port Dickson is to see comprehensive development, with a duty-free shopping zone, leisure marina, convention hall, seaport terminal and customs, immigration and quarantine complexes.

"With these facilities, the popular holiday spot will become a year-long crowd puller," Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said today.

"All this while Port Dickson has been known to be a weekend tourist spot but with the ambitious development plans, it will no longer be a weekend tourist destination but throughout the day.

"Our intention is to develop Port Dickson into a tourist attraction to provide revenue to the state government.

"We want the tourism industry as one of the industries that can diversify the state government's sources of revenue," he told reporters after chairing the weekly state executive council meeting.

The plan, which involves heavy investments, would be undertaken by the private sector, he said, adding that the state government would only provide the land.

"In this way, the state government will receive returns, both in cash and kind or in other forms," he said.

Mohamad said the state government has shortlisted five companies, including foreign firms, which have shown interest and have the expertise to undertake the project.

"We have prepared the terms of reference as a guide for the project and the companies have to comply with them.

"We are to call them for a briefing soon and to present their plans to the state government before we decide which company meets the state government's requirements.

"The bidders will be given an equal chance to make their presentations but the state government will pick only one company to implement the project," he added.

PD project yet to be awarded
By SARBAN SINGH


THE state government has yet to award the multi-billion ringgit Port Dickson duty-free zone project, to be built on a soon-to-be-reclaimed area fronting the resort town, to any party.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said although five companies had been shortlisted, a final decision would only be made in two months.

“The shortlisted companies will be called in next month to brief the state authorities on their project concept. We will take another month to announce the successful bidder,” he said, adding that one of the five companies was foreign.

Mohamad was asked if the project, which would, among others, include the construction of a Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex, a convention centre which can seat up to 3,000 people, a hotel, duty-free shopping mall and offices, had been awarded.

“Nobody should go around claiming that they have been awarded the duty-free zone project ... we will make it public when the successful bidder is chosen,” he told reporters after chairing the state exco meeting at his office in Seremban.

Many are confused over the status of the project as a local company in Port Dickson claims that it had obtained approval from the Port Dickson Municipal Council (MPPD) for a similar project.

The two projects are to be built on adjacent parcels of land.

International Maritime Gateway (Image) Sdn Bhd managing director Mohd Azman Ahmad, when contacted, said the project to be built by his company would also have a CIQ, duty-free mall, hotel and apartments, a convention centre, marina and a deep-sea jetty.

Mohamad, when asked, said he had no knowledge of this.

Mohd Azman said his company’s project, to be built at an estimated cost of RM350mil, had been planned some time ago. “We are a private entity and are not involved in the project mentioned by the Mentri Besar. In fact, we had also briefed the Mentri Besar on this,” he said.

He said the project’s Environmental Impact Assessment report was also ready and copies would be submitted to the Department of Environment (DOE) and MPPD next week.

Asked how a CIQ complex could be built by Image when one would be built in the project proposed by the state government just adjacent to it, Mohd Azman said his company had had meetings with the Home Ministry as well as the Marine Department on the possibility of one being built by them.

”I was told that if I can provide the building and infrastructure, they would have no qualms about opening the CIQ offices here,” he said.

Mohd Azman said he also held talks with several business friends who had obtained duty-free licences from the Treasury previously, on the possibility of opening a tax-free mall within his project.

His company, Mohd Azman claimed, had also held talks with the Railway Asset Corporation two years ago on the possibility of developing the parcel of land owned by Keretapi Tanah Melayu that was located adjacent to his proposed project.

Asked if it was true that his company had already started selling and marketing units to be built in the project, Mohd Azman said these were not being sold but leased under the “super value programme”.

“Under the programme, the buyers don’t get to own these units. They will only have the right to use them,” he added.
