28 Dec 2012

The end of 2012 saw the demise of 2 stalwarts of the commodities industry in Malaysia. I relate to these 2 champions because they were also serving the palm oil industry when I was attached with the Malaysian Palm Oil Board(MPOB) commencing 1982-2005.
Tun Dr Lim Kheng Yaik was the Primary Industries Minister (1986-2004). The other was Tan Sri Wong Kum Choon, former Secretary-General of the Primary Industries Ministry who worked closely with Dr Lim throughout his tenure from 1972-1993. Wong passed away on Nov14 2012 while Lim on 22 December 2012.
Both these leaders were instrumental in the planning, growth and development of the commodities sector, providing focus, impetus and direction for key cornerstone industries such as palm oil, timber, and rubber through their most challenging milestones. It was also during their tenure that they brought greater focus to the commodity sector, consolidating disparate commodity agencies into a single entity to handle each of the commodities. These include the formation of MPOB, Malaysian Rubber Board, Malaysian Palm Oil Council, Malaysian Timber Council and the like.
Strategic development in 1980s resulted in the golden age of palm oil during mid 2005.
My heart goes to both Toh Puan Lim and Pn Sri Kim Wong Kam Choon and their bereaved families for the loss of their beloved husbands and fathers.
May God Bless them All.....

ZaraZin Shoppe

1 July 2012
My sisters and I open a shop in Melaka, our beloved state, to woo the tourists who come to this historical   city where it all began. We are selling batik casuals, gemstone jewellery, souvenir items and knick knacks for tourists.
This year 2012 marks the 750th anniversary of our beloved state. Born and bred in Melaka, we are very proud to set up this shop along Jalan Bendahara within the city centre. We hope our little shop can help further promote Melaka in the eyes of tourists, looking for unique items and souvenirs to remember by their visit to Malaysia.

We organised a business trip to Bandung and Jakarta, Indonesia mid-April, just to take a break from Anggerik Mall. And what a wonderful break we have had. Bandung is a beautiful city, still deep in agriculture because of the fertile soil from the volcanic spills. The strawberries there were wonderfully sweet! The people are a hardworking lot, very blessed and satisfied with what life had to offer there. Most of us brought back momentoes of our visit there - telekong from Tanah Abang, cheap lace material from Pasar Baru, fashionable blouses from Rumah Mode, and relaxing massages at Rogers and Zen Reflexology.

Since we started organising our mailto:GarageSale@AnggerikMallin Shah Alam since January 2012 this year, I have observed that the more you help people in business, the more business gains you get. And this is especially true when we approached and organise petty traders to set up shop, selling used and pre-loved personal belongings, books, collectibles, porcelainware and other household items at our premises every Sunday. It has been 3 months now.....and everybody is happy with their weekend activity.
Hence, I believe in Recycle, Reuse, Regenerate RM!
