LABUAN (Bernama) -- Labuan must aggressively promote itself as a value-for-money destination in order to boost its domestic and international tourism appeal, according to Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Datuk Tan Cheng Kiat.
The duty-free-island, which is also an oil and gas and international financial hub, needs to take tourism to a whole new level and harness the huge potential to grow its economy.
Tan was among a group of 17 peninsular-based investors who made a three-day business exploration trip to Labuan last week. They voiced out their concerns about the lack of investment and tourism promotions by the local authority and industry players and said this might slow down the island’s economic growth.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Nothing can be more therapeutic than having an adorable cat as a pet, so says Muhammad Hasbullah Ibrahim.
The 28-year-old secretary of the Malaysia Cat Club has been a cat lover since young and is now the proud owner of seven cats of different breeds.
His love affair with felines started after he rescued four stray kittens from being bitten by a dog by the roadside sometime back. He decided to give them a home and named them Moktam, Shuteh, Leo and Belang.

KANGAR (Bernama) -- Imagine you are in a public place, when you feel the sudden and very urgent call of nature.
For many Malaysians, this can be one of their worst nightmares. Our public toilets are notoriously known to be smelly, filthy, wet and disgusting.
As such, many would try their best to “hold it in” no matter how much they need to “go” – at least until they get home or to a facility deemed cleaner.
