Petra Jaya Hospital in design process


KUCHING: The long-delayed Petra Jaya Hospital is currently in its design process and will be up for tender once the design has been finalised.

“We are currently waiting for the hospital designs and have already appointed a consultant on the matter,” said state health deputy director Dr Chin Zin Hing.

According to him, the hospital, which is expected to be completed within three years, will be developed on a 40-acre site next to the Sarawak Health Department in Petra Jaya.

“The hospital complex will comprise 300-bed accommodation with all the basic specialist services to cater to patients within the Petra Jaya vicinity,” he told reporters at a press conference here yesterday.

Earlier, Dr Chin and Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) director Dr Abdul Rahim Abdullah received a delegation from Sarawak police contingent, led by state police commissioner DCP Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani, on their official visit to SGH in conjunction with the country’s 205th Police Day Anniversary celebration.

Asked whether the new hospital would reduce overcrowding at SGH, he said: “It will definitely help with the congestion but not solve the problem entirely because SGH is a tertiary hospital and we have a lot of referral patients coming in from other hospitals throughout the state.”

Sharing the same sentiment, Dr Rahim pointed out that the issue of overcrowding could not be overcome anytime soon.

“If we take into consideration the population of Kuching, which is around 700,000 together with the number of beds at SGH and the Cardiac Centre in Kota Samarahan, which totals to more than 1,000 beds, as well as bed accommodation in private sector hospitals, there is still a shortage of beds,” he said.

“As a referral hospital, we take in patients from community hospitals from as far as Lawas and Limbang and even from Miri and Sibu, when the hospitals there do not have the specialists or facility for the patients,” Dr Rahim added.

On the development of a multi-storey car park at SGH, he disclosed that the project had been brought to the attention of the Prime Minister’s Department.

“We are looking to start this project within this year provided there’s no glitch,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dr Rahim revealed that the hospital was looking to increase its number of subspecialties to 44 by 2020.

“At the moment, we have 33 disciplines at the hospitals while five years ago, we only had about 18 disciplines.

“By increasing the number of disciplines, we hope that within eight years, locals no longer need to travel to west Malaysia or other countries to seek treatment,” he said.

Also present at the event were state deputy police commissioner SAC Datuk Law Hong Soon and Family of Police Association (Perkep) chairwoman Datin Zaitun Mohd Isa.

Berrylite Froyo coming to Kuching

Last night I was having my weekly Frozen Yoghurt in Hielo One Jaya and I struck up a conversation with a guy from the next table. Apparently he will be bringing over a Singaporean froyo franchise which Singaporeans rate higher than Tutti Frutti (which is a big hit in Semenanjung Malaysia and opening soon in Miri...ahead of Kuching :p)

He told me that his first outlet will be in Boulevard 2nd Phase and is planning to open up a few more Berrylite outlets in the City if the first one is a success. WOuld really love if Kuching tries and go the Singaporean way rather than jumping on the West Msian bandwagon

AEON set for expansion into Sabah and Sarawak markets
Posted on April 19, 2012, Thursday


KUCHING: AEON Corporation (M) Bhd (AEON), a leading retailer in Malaysia, sees potential room for expansion into Sabah and Sarawak market, banking on its strong branding and proven management capabilities.
According to Maybank Investment Bank Bhd (Maybank IB) in its research report, the markets in Sabah and Sarawak were not entirely underserved, with the dominant players and first movers such as Parkson Holdings Bhd (Parkson), Giant Hypermarket (Giant) and The Store Corporation Bhd (The Store).
However, the research house believed that AEON’s strong branding of its Jusco stores would eventually work to its advantage in the two East Malaysian states.
“The group has not yet set any specific timeline for expansion, but market evaluation and feasibility studies have been carried out.” the research firm added.
Sabah and Sarawak were, respectively, the third and fourth most populated states in Malaysia, after Selangor and Johor.
AEON’s foray into these two states would put it in direct competition with existing and upcoming shopping centres, given the first-mover advantage by its competitors.
“Presently there are only two big shopping malls in Kuching, namely, tHe Spring Shopping Mall (tHe Spring), which opened in January 2008, and the Boulevard Shopping Mall (Boulevard), which opened in December 2007 and is partially occupied by both Parkson and Giant,” Maybank IB stated.
It noted that four other malls were under construction, with CityOne Megamall expected to be the largest upon its completion. In addition, there were two standalone Giant hypermarkets within a seven-kilometre radius of the town area.
“To-date, there are four Parkson stores and six Giant stores in Sarawak, located in its three main cities of Kuching, Sibu and Miri,” the research house noted.
For the state of Sabah, The Store had 17 Milimewa supermarkets and department stores spread across Sabah. Giant, on the other hand, had a total of 17 stores with 14 of them in Kota Kinabalu while Parkson occupied two stores in Kota Kinabalu.
In addition to the major cities, the research firm opined that AEON should also be eyeing other underserved cities such as Tawau and Sandakan, which had similar population as Kota Kinabalu of more than 400,000 people.
At this juncture, neither Tesco Stores (M) Sdn Bhd (Tesco) nor Carrefour (M) Sdn Bhd (Carrefour) had a presence in Sabah and Sarawak.
“While we do not think that AEON will be deterred by the proliferation of retail space in East Malaysia nor the accompanying competition, we believe that it may be a while before it pushes into Sabah and Sarawak,” opined Maybank IB
According the research firm, AEON’s strategy would likely be to purchase land in these two states to build its own shopping malls, rather than rent space in the existing malls. This strategy should afford it income from both retail and property management.
With a slight upside catalyst at this stage and low dividend yield as support, the research firm pegged a fair value of RM8.70 per share for AEON, based on 14 times the price earnings ratios for the year 2013.
Maybank IB also forecasted the revenue growth of 6.8 per cent for the group in 2012, aligned with the six per cent industry growth expected by the Retail Association of Malaysia.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang eyes East Malaysian market



KUCHING: Hard Rock Hotel Penang sees great potential in increasing the number of its guests from Sarawak and Sabah.

Marketing communications manager Elisa Saw said this is based on the availability of direct flights from Kuching and Kota Kinabalu to Penang.

“We see a lot of potential in the East Malaysian market. Direct flights are very much in a traveller’s planning process.

“Because of the convenience, there is very high potential for more East Malaysian guests coming in,” she said during a networking lunch with the media here yesterday.

Saw said the hotel’s concept of “authentic experiences that rock” and its focus on music fits in well with East Malaysians, particularly Sarawakians.

“People here like music,” she said referring to the popularity of music festivals in the state such as the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) and Borneo Jazz.

“I’m sure you’ll like the musical fun that you will get from Hard Rock Hotel.”

She pointed out that the hotel’s Hard Rock Cafe, Malaysia’s second after the outlet in Kuala Lumpur, features live band performances every night.

Saw added that the hotel’s marketing team is researching the potential of the East Malaysian market.

Although there is no specific package for Sarawak and Sabah at present, Saw pointed out that the hotel’s website offers at least five different packages with special rates and deals.

At present, up to 60 per cent of the hotel’s guests are Malaysians.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang was recently crowned No. 1 Trendiest Hotel in Malaysia and No. 3 in Asia by TripAdvisor’s 2012 Traveller’s Choice Awards.

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel website and the awards are based solely on traveller reviews.

The six-storey Hard Rock Hotel Penang, at Batu Ferringhi, has 250 rooms and suites with mostly beach views.

There are a wide selection of facilities including the largest swimming pool in Penang at 26,000 square feet, the Rock Spa and Body Rock with state-of-the-art gym equipment, and for families with children and teens the Lil’ Rock Kids Club and Teens Club.

Hard Rock International is one of the world’s most globally recognised brands with 138 cafes and 15 hotels/casinos in 53 countries.
