DBKU Boasts International Awards and National Certification

KUCHING: The Kuching City North Commission (DBKU) had a successful first outing in the International Awards for Liveable Communities (LivCom) 2012.

DBKU clenched silver awards for the "Whole City Award" category, and three more silver in the "Project Awards" category for its "Kuching Esplanade", "Sarawak River Cleaning Programme" and the "3R Buy Back Project".

The awards were obtained during the ceremony in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates on Nov 26 where DBKU was among 72 other cities from some 50 countries around the world participating.

“We are proud to have received these awards in our first participation. We are also proud that we are comparable to other cities around the world, which has put us in the eyes of the world,” DBKU Datuk Bandar Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Julai told a press conference at DBKU headquarters here yesterday.

Apart from those awards, DBKU has also made Kuching proud again after being the FIRST LOCAL AUTHORITY IN THE COUNTRY to receive three certifications from SIRIM.

DBKU was awarded the "Occupational Safety and Health" Certification (OHSAS) 18001:2007 (Safety and Health Management at Workplace) which completed the commission’s Integrated Management System that comprises the MS ISO 9001:2008, MS ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.

Wahap said DBKU would continue to strive to win more awards and recognitions in the future by serving the people efficiently.

“Our success would not have peen possible if not for the cooperation from the public who have helped make our city as vibrant and as liveable as possible.

“I hope that in the future there will be more participation from communities to show to the world that Kuching City has what it takes (to be among the world’s best cities),” he said.

MBKS and DBKU urgently need to make their roads more pedestrian friendly to avoid such accidents.
I think 3rd Mile (Timberland Medical Centre) is under MBKS.

And I do agree that we need more overhead bridges here in Kuching.

University’s new campus in Samarahan to be ready by October next year

KOTA SAMARAHAN: The Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UiTM) Sarawak’s new campus is expected to begin operations in October next year.

Its rector Prof Datuk Dr Jamil Hamali said the Samarahan II campus would be an extension to its existing campus here and should be able to accommodate 4,000 more students.

It is located on a 404ha site in Kampung Pinang while the built-up area for Phase One would cover about 32ha.

He said several new courses would be introduced at the new campus to meet the state’s requirements.

”This includes a Diploma In Halal Management to support the halal hub activities and the industry overall. We’re also going to start a Diploma In Herbal Production, which is also a way for us to support the industry,” he told reporters at the university’s convocation yesterday.

Prof Jamil said UiTM Sarawak also planned to come up with a halal laboratory to conduct DNA screening of products.

“Previously we had problems with the butter issue and we had to go all the way to Kuala Lumpur to have it tested. Now we are planning to have a local lab that can conduct first-level screening on this sort of issue,” he said.

He added that the new campus would also have plants to serve as an open lab for students to study about herbal production and other related subjects.

Additionally, UiTM Sarawak is also building a permanent campus in Mukah, which is expected to be ready in October 2015.

The Mukah campus, which started in 2002, is currently operating in rented shoplots and government buildings with 300 students undergoing diploma programmes.

The permanent campus will be able to accommodate 2,000 students in support of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

Prof Jamil said UiTM Sarawak’s programmes were based on the needs of the state.

“We will only offer programmes that are required by the state. That’s why we are not in a rush to offer new programmes.

“We would like to make sure that when the students graduate, they end up with a job,” he said.

Earlier, UiTM pro chancellor Tan Sri Nuraizah Abdul Hamid said UiTM Sarawak would be able to achieve its target of 10,000 students next year upon the completion of the new campus.

She said the campus expansion as well as the Mukah permanent campus were part of the university’s efforts to provide places for students from poor families and rural areas to further their studies.

In addition, she said UiTM Sarawak had forged close ties with industries to provide training for its students.

“Several batches of our students have been taken on by institutions and companies including Agro-Biotechnology Institute of Malaysia, Centre for Modern Management Sarawak, Naim Cendera Holdings Sdn Bhd, Sarawak State Planning Unit, Sarawak Islamic Council and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd,” she pointed out.

“We are also formulating collaborations with universities in Borneo such as Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Universitas Tanjungpura and several more in Kalimantan, Indonesia.”

Naim rises 2% on RM205m MRT contract
25 October 2012

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 25): Naim Holdings Bhd saw its shares rise 2% in early trade after the builder confirmed it had secured a RM204.66 million mass rapid transit (MRT) project in the Klang Valley.

Analysts said the rise in the stock’s price was helped by the confirmed updates on Naim being appointed as a sub-contractor for the MRT project following news reports on the matter prior to the company’s latest announcement to the exchange.

“The rise in the stock’s price is partially due to Naim’s latest announcement on the MRT project,” an analyst from TA Securities Holdings Bhd told theedgemalaysia.com over telephone on Thursday.

At 10.34am, Naim was traded at RM1.34 with 150,000 shares done after rising as much as three sen to RM1.96 earlier. TA has a “buy” call for Naim shares with fair value of RM3.17, according to the analyst.

Naim told the exchangeon Wednesday that the firm had received the Letter of Award from Gadang Engineering (M) Sdn. Bhd to build elevated stations and undertake related jobs Taman Industri Sungai Buloh, PJU 5 and Dataran Sunway.

The project is anticipated to contribute positively to Naim’s financials from the year ending Dec 31, 2013 onwards, according to the company.

Naim’s businesses include property development, construction, and oil and gas support services.

The group’s property development projects, located mainly within Sarawak, are the Bandar Baru Permyjaya in Miri, Desa Ilmu in Kota Samarahan, and the up-market Riveria satellite township within Kuching’s southern corridor.

As a construction firm, Naim has undertaken some RM5 billion worth projects which include its property development projects, the firm said. Meanwhile, Naim’s oil and gas support services operations are undertaken via it unit Dayang Enterprise Holdings Bhd.

I'm wondering why they still want to really develop Pasir Panjang area. FOr the past two years, various cases of crocodile attacks happened at this area. How I wish they can divert it to Damai instead of Pasir Panjang. Plus, I think Santubong coastal tip also has a potential to be developed due to its long sandy beaches and some mangrove spots. I think it's safer to develop that area than Pasir Panjang.

I agree with the casino thingy. How about theme park with rollercoasters circling the mountain?

For me, i wouldn't agree with casino or rollercoaster. People go to santubong for the nature. Not for things like that.... The cable cars are for people who wants to view the view but lazy to walk... By building casino or rollercoaster or a theme park, it will just take away the charm of santubong.

Kuching's drivers need to improve their driving skill and civility too. Fast and aggressive driving only go to prove one's immaturiy. Skillful drivers do not drive and park one's car like a wild animal.

I agreed.
I think we should focus on nature and build very attractive hotels/camps and nature centers. In the future people will pay to experience nature instead of all these cheesy man made stuff.

Casinos will employ more people but it is not a good work environmnet unless one is a hooker or loan shark. Casinos need gimmicks and constant promotion to make cash flow works. The only people who make money in casino is the casino owner. All successful casinos are built with all gamblers' lost $$$$$$$.
