The Summer Shopping Mall

Samarahan ready for new shopping malls

by Samuel Aubrey. Posted on October 25, 2010, Monday

KUCHING: Deputy Works Minister Dato Yong Khoon Seng believes the business environment is now right to set up new shopping malls in the emerging Samarahan division.



He said this was mainly due to the exemption of import taxes for over 300 items, as announced in the 2011 Budget by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, which will attract more people from foreign countries to shop in the state.

The other contributing factor, he stressed, is that Samarahan is is well-connected with good road network to the adjacent Kuching division and other parts of Sarawak.

“This (exemption of import taxes) will positively impact the growth of business opportunities. Consumers can purchase imported goods, especially branded goods, at lower prices. These will encourage tourists to shop here thereby stimulating other industries.

“Businesses in Kuching – Samarahan divisions will cater for influx of tourists from Indonesia, while Limbang and Miri will expect an influx of shoppers from Brunei. Businesses in other divisions will cater mostly local shoppers and some foreign tourists,” said Yong when launching a new shopping mall project here yesterday.

The project – Summer Shopping Mall – is a three storey commercial mall being developed along Jalan Dato Mohd Musa in Kota Samarahan and is adjacent to residential areas and institutions of learning there.

Developed by Tetap Majumas Sdn Bhd, it is set to be the first major shopping mall in Samarahan and scheduled to be opened by end of 2012.

Covering a space of 177m long and 95m wide, it will comprise an anchor tenant to occupy the hypermarket and departmental store from lower ground to first floor.

There will be over 220 retail shops, food court, an eight-screen cineplex, and basement and open space car parks.

Meanwhile, Tetap Majumas managing director Lee Chee Fui said Summer will be a landmark that will meet the needs of not just the existing population but also the growing and future populations in Kota Samarahan.

“Kuching city has more than 600,000 existing population and the nearby Samarahan division contains more than 300,000 population. Kota Samarahan has (also) began witnessing remarkable transformation into a City of Knowledge of Sarawak.

“There will be no doubt with current remarkable growth of population, mixed residential and commercial projects, Kota Samarahan will need a place that offers enhanced quality of working, lifestyle, entertainment and leisure, (that is) the Summer Shopping Mall,” he said.

Also present was Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Tan Joo Phoi.

KOTA SAMARAHAN: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) akan terus menjadi universiti pilihan untuk membekalkan tenaga kerja profesional dalam pembangunan negeri ini, kata Ketua Menteri Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam ucapannya di Majlis Konvokesyen Ke-14 UNIMAS, di sini, semalam.

Menurut beliau lagi, usaha tersebut juga adalah untuk melihat lebih ramai lagi penduduk tempatan mempunyai pendidikan di peringkat pengajian tinggi menjelang tahun 2020 kelak.

“Kita ingin melihat sekurang-kurang 30 peratus penduduk tempatan mempunyai pendidikan di peringkat pengajian tinggi bagi menampung keperluan pembangunan negeri dan negara amnya menjelang 2020 dan seterusnya,” katanya.

Sementara itu, beliau yang juga Pro Canselor UNIMAS dalam ucapannya, turut menggalakkan penglibatan aktif UNIMAS dalam pelbagai agensi kerajaan dan swasta di dalam dan luar negara.

“Oleh sebab itu, saya tahu UNIMAS akan mengambil tindakan bagi memperkenalkan universiti ini di kalangan pakar-pakar pendidikan di seluruh dunia dan saya sendiri sanggup untuk menaja (usaha),” katanya.

Developing Kota Samarahan As Malaysia's 4th Cyber City
August 02, 2008 20:06 PM

KUCHING, Aug 2 (Bernama) -- Kota Samarahan will in future be the country's fourth smart city with efforts underway to draw companies with MSC (multimedia super corridor) status to set up operations there and develop it into a cyber city.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili said the Sarawak government was working closely with the ministry to develop Kota Samarahan like Cyberjaya in Selangor, Bayan Lepas High Technoloy Park in Penang and Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah.

"The ministry has the role of encouraging and coordinating investments by interested parties with MSC status," he said after visiting the ministry's exhibition site at Tebingan Kuching here, Saturday.

He said the state government had identified Kota Samarahan as the most strategic area to be developed into the country's fourth cyber city.

Asked on the number of companies which had expressed interest in investing in Kota Samarahan, Ongkili said there were already companies with MSC status in Sarawak which were prepared to expand their operations to Kota Samarahan.

He said the cyber city project for Kota Samarahan had been included in the mid-term review of the Ninth Malaysia Plan, and the ministry was only waiting for the report from the state government on the project.

"We need to know the site cost and about the infrastructure from the report, while the ministry will provide the high-speed broadband facility," he added.

Kota Samarahan, which is about 30km from Kuching city, is also known as a knowledge city as the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and Universiti Teknologi Mara campuses are located there.

Proposed UNIMAS teaching hospital



Unimas plans teaching hospital under 10MP

Posted on May 1, 2010, Saturday

KUCHING: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) has proposed to build a teaching hospital for its medicine and health science faculty under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP).The chairman of its board of directors Tan Sri Datuk Amar Bujang Mohd Nor said the university had already submitted a proposal to the federal government on this.

“Like many universities such as Universiti Malaya (UM), Unimas also needs a hospital of its own to facilitate students in their learning,” he told a news conference after opening the Unimas Ambulatory Care Centre (ACC) named ‘Pusat Rawatan Harian Unimas’at Green Road here yesterday.

Bujang Nor did not go into details on the proposed hospital other than saying that Unimas was ‘waiting for good news’ from the government.

On the ACC, he pointed out that it was the first and only private ACC in the state offering its services at reasonable and competitive rates.

For now, the centre provides specialised services such as obstetrics and gynaecology, radiology, paediatrics, orthopaedics, minor surgery, family medicine and sports medicine.

In future, it will further expand to offer opthalmology, cardiology, psychiatry, urology and endoscopy.

“This centre is meant for the general public to seek medical care. It is not solely for the staff and students of UNIMAS,” said Bujang, hoping that people around the area would take advantage of the facility.

In his opening speech, he said the Board of Directors had agreed to change the name ‘Pusat Rawatan Harian Unimas’ to Sebayor Medical Centre to avoid confusion.

“Application has been submitted and now waiting for approval from the Ministry of Health,” he said.

He hoped that the centre would fulfill its corporate social responsibility by keeping the medical fees at affordable level besides organising community-based activities such as health checks, blood donation campaigns and health forums from time to time.

The centre should also emphasise on research works to help realise Unimas’ vision of becoming a research university by 2015, he said.

He added that it was vital for the centre to comply with the Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Regulations, 2006, to protect the safety and interests of patients.

Earlier, chairman of Sebayor Holdings Sdn Bhd Datu Stephen Wan said the centre was primarily meant for partial private practice for specialist doctors of Unimas’ medicine and health science faculty.

“As Unimas does not have its own teaching hospital, the specialist doctors of the faculty have to practise in the Sarawak General Hospital, polyclinics and other private hospitals to maintain their clinical skills.

“With this centre, Unimas hopes to attract and retain more specialist doctors for the teaching and research requirements of the faculty,” he added.

Stressing that the centre offered quality and affordable outpatient care, Wan said it had three consultation rooms for the visiting specialists, in-house pharmacy, treatment room, radiology services namely ultrasound, mammogram and x-tray, medical laboratory and minor operation theater.

The centre was also meant to generate income for Unimas through the provision of healthcare services to public, he said.

It has a full time medical officer, two staff nurses, a radiographer, a laboratory technologist, a dispenser, five clinic assistants, two housekeeping attendants and three office staff.

Some 20 visiting specialist doctors from various disciplines are serving at the centre.

The centre is open on weekdays from 9am to 9pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm. Its closed on Sundays and public holidays.

For more information, visit the Ground Floor, Lot 3211-3215, Block 10, KCLD Green Road or call 082-222129 or fax no. 082-222117.

State’s first green residential development





THE first sustainable residential development project in Sarawak was launched recently.

Academia Lane, located by the Kuching-Samarahan outer ring road, is unique as conscious decisions are made to reduce its environmental impact both during and after construction, according to Spago Property Sdn Bhd director Tony Su.

He acknowledged that while it was impossible to achieve zero-carbon footprint, he believed carbon emission and waste discharge could be minimised.

“Innovations will also be put in place to aid the residents towards a more responsible lifestyle. We have gone high-end with our 12-villa project, but with Academia Lane, we have raised the bar yet again and taken the challenge to make ‘green’ affordable,” he said.

Academia Lane’s location provides discerning owners with the benefits and convenience of easy access to all important facilities.

All the houses are three-storey high and they are available in three different designs and layouts.

Each unit will have up to six bedrooms, four washrooms, living and dining area, and an Asian kitchen. The top floor is designed to be a versatile space which can be converted into two more bedrooms or an entertainment area.

The homeowners at Academia Lane will also benefit from a gated and guarded community environment.

The Sarawak Club Golf Course, shopping and commercial centre, hotels, hospital and a university are all within a few minutes’ drive. It is also only about a five-minute drive to Tabuan Jaya and 15 minutes to Kuching International Airport.
