More aggressive promotions needed to tap Labuan's tourism potential

By Jailani Hasan

 

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.

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.

 

Fikirlah: Reform The Way We Use Public Toilets

By Adnan Jahaya

 

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.
