 MALAYSIAN INBOUND TOURISM ASSOCIATION (MITA) recently signed an MOU with Association of The Indonesia Tours & Travel Agencies (ASITA) to encourage travelling to the two countries.

With the MOU, the two countries will be able to channel their energy and expand their network to promote themselves as well known travel destinations.

China, with its 100 million travellers that travel globally every year, is a common target market. The Malaysian government expects 4 million travellers to visit Malaysia with a majority of travellers coming through MITA members who are active in the China market.

Already popular among the Chinese are package visits to Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand known as the MarSinThai package.

"It's possible that one day, with aggressive joint promotions by MITA and ASITA, the new package MALINDO (visiting Malaysia and Indonesia in one package) will also be popular to the China market," said Mr Uzaidi Udanis, MITA President at the time of the press conference held at Sunway Putra Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

The memorandum will cover other fields especially in Investments and Education including internship programmes which will see Indonesian and Malaysian students being interns in the travel industry.

MITA hopes that this collaboration will be a good start for the two NGOs to attract more visitors to visit Malaysia and Indonesia.

About 100 hotels and travel agencies gathered at the MITA-ASIATA Business Networking event to promote packages available in Indonesia, especially in Lombok, akin to Malaysia's Langkawi.

Also gracing the event was Mr Dewantoro Umbu, West Nusa Tenggara District Head of the ASITA.

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.

NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.

An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
