Taman Seribu Bunga, Ayer Keroh

MELAKA . April – Taman Seribu Bunga, Ayer Keroh yang terletak bersebelahan Kompleks Seri Negeri berjaya menarik kira-kira 6,000 pengunjung setiap tahun.

Timbalan Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pelancongan, Pembangunan Pantai, Sungai dan Pulau-pulau negeri, Datuk Ghazale Muhamad berkata, taman berkeluasan 5.3 hektar itu dibuka secara percuma kepada umum dan telah dirasmikan pada 1 Julai 2007.



Menurutnya, taman yang te­lah diwartakan sebagai salah satu produk pelancongan negeri ini menempatkan lebih 200 spesies induk pokok bunga pelbagai jenis serta tumbuhan herba.

“Pembangunan taman ini mela­lui dua fasa dan kos keseluruhannya menelan kira-kira RM12 juta tidak termasuk kos penyelenggaraan taman ini untuk setiap tahun. “Penjagaan dan penyelenggaraan taman ini diselia di bawah Majlis Perbandaran Hang Tuah Jaya (MPHTJ) dan dipantau oleh Jabatan Landskap negeri bagi memastikan taman ini sentiasa berada dalam keadaan baik.

“Bagi kos penyelenggaraan ia memerlukan kos yang agak tinggi iaitu MPHTJ mengeluarkan kira-kira RM15,000 setiap tahun untuk mengekalkan keindahan taman ini yang sesuai menjadi tempat riadah dan tarikan pelancong,” katanya.
Beliau berkata demikian selepas mengadakan lawatan produk pelancongan di taman berkenaan di sini, hari ini.

Ghazale berkata, daripada lawatan itu, pihaknya mendapati beberapa perkara yang perlu ditambah baik terutamanya dari segi penjagaan pokok taman selain mengekalkan keindahannya supaya bersesuaian dengan nama Taman Seribu Bunga.

Katanya, pihaknya juga telah meminta MPHTJ membuat satu kertas kerja untuk menambah baik taman itu dan akan cuba memohon peruntukan dari Kementerian Pelancongan untuk menjadikannya lebih menarik.

“Kita yakin taman ini mampu menarik lebih ramai pengunjung dan boleh menjadi salah satu tempat pelancongan pilihan kepada pengunjung untuk berehat dan beriadah.
“Selain itu pelbagai kemudahan turut disediakan di taman ini seperti surau, tandas sebagainya untuk kemudahan para pengunjung,” katanya.

Arrival of Tamil New Year offers prosperous outlook for nation




KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 13: The arrival of the ‘Manmatha’ Tamil New Year tomorrow is expected to shower happiness as well as offer a new beginning for the Indian community, said the Malaysian Hindu Sangam.

Malaysian Hindu Sangam president Datuk R.S. Mohan Shan said the arrival of the “Manmatha” new year or also known as “Chittirai Puthandu” promises an extraordinary transformation to Malaysia.
“Manmatha” which means “Extraordinary” and, the new year will bring extraordinary transformation to all communities in the country and marks a new beginning for the Indian community after going through many challenges, he told Bernama today.
He said this extraordinary year will also bring success for the Hindu community under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who has given allocations for many Hindu Non-Governmental organisations, especially the Malaysia Hindu Sangam for the implementation of programmes for the betterment of the community.
“We only started receiving allocations after Najib became the prime minister, so my hope for this new year is that the Indian community will enjoy more national development under him (Najib),” he said
Mohan also urged the Malaysian Hindu community to give more attention to the importance of lives and religion during this celebration.
Tamil people around the world celebrate Tamil new year on April 14, which marks the birth of the Chittirai month.    
The celebration, which is considered holy and joyous, is observed every year on the first day of the Tamil solar calendar and this year is known as “Manmatha.”     
The 60 year cycle comes by five revolutions of Jupiter and two revolutions of Saturn.   
The day is marked with a feast in homes and entrances to the houses are decorated elaborately with kolam and traditional vegetarian food is served. – BERNAMA

Pantai Puteri, Melaka.

MELAKA 6 April - Laporan surat khabar UTUSAN.com.my





Senario hujung minggu di Pantai Puteri di sini bagaikan pesta dengan kehadiran ribuan pengunjung dari dalam dan luar negara.

Pantai yang dahulunya dikenali dengan nama Pantai Kundor itu bukan lagi asing dalam kalangan pengunjung berbilang kaum daripada pelbagai peringkat usia.

Selain suasana pantai yang nyaman, kebersihan serta keindahan Pantai Puteri menjadi antara faktor tarikan utama pengunjung.

Ditambah dengan pelbagai aktiviti sampingan termasuk memancing, riadah, berkhemah dan berkelah, pantai yang terletak kira-kira 15 kilometer dari pusat bandar itu aktif dengan pelbagai aktiviti kekeluargaan terutama setiap kali tibanya hujung minggu, cuti umum dan cuti persekolahan.

Biarpun Melaka mempunyai pelbagai destinasi pelancongan menarik di ketiga-tiga daerahnya iaitu Jasin, Alor Gajah dan Melaka Tengah, namun Pantai Puteri tidak pernah kalah dari segi bilangan pengunjung.

Tinjauan Utusan Malaysia di pantai yang terletak antara dua mukim iaitu Tanjung Keling dan Tangga Batu itu baru-baru ini menyaksikan bukan hanya pengunjung tempatan, malah pengunjung dari luar Melaka termasuk Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan dan Johor ‘mencuri masa’ menjalani aktiviti kekeluargaan di sana.

Deruan ombak yang menenangkan serta panorama indah matahari naik dan terbenam menghadap Selat Melaka sepanjang 2.5 kilometer pantainya itu memberikan lebih kepuasan kepada pengunjung.

Rata-rata mereka yang ditemui bukan hanya memberi maklum balas positif terhadap perubahan pantai berkenaan jika dibandingkan dengan 10 tahun lalu, malah mengharapkan pantai tersebut dapat berkembang dengan lebih baik pada masa akan datang.

Sejajar dengan peredaran masa, Pantai Puteri yang telah diwartakan sebagai salah satu kawasan pelancongan di negeri ini telah dilengkapi dengan pelbagai prasarana utama.
Ini termasuk bekalan elektrik, masjid, tandas awam, restoran dan kedai makan berhampiran serta kemudahan penginapan termasuk hotel serta calet.

Biarpun banyak perubahan yang dialami namun aktiviti perikanan oleh para nelayan yang ditinggal di perkampungan sekitar pantai itu menambah lebih variasi kepada pengunjung.

Bukan hanya dapat melihat aktiviti para nelayan menjalankan kerja-kerja menangkap hasil laut malah, pengunjung berpeluang membeli pelbagai hasil laut segar termasuk ikan, ketam, sotong dan udang di gerai jualan berhampiran pada harga berpatutan.

Beberapa tahun lalu, Pantai Puteri pernah dipalit isu hakisan yang serius namun, usaha kerajaan negeri menangani masalah itu ternyata berhasil sehingga me­rubah wajah pantai itu ketika ini.

Daripada sebuah kawasan yang penduduknya banyak bergantung kepada hasil laut, pertanian dan industri, kini terdapat banyak peluang pekerjaan dengan lebih banyak resort dan hotel-hotel baharu di bina di situ.

Antara prasarana lain yang turut dilengkapi sekitar pantai itu termasuk sekolah, balai raya, klinik kesihatan dan balai polis.

Challenging race to rediscover Malacca’s tourist spots


NEWS FROM STAR ONLINE-[METRO SECTION]

MALACCA: A group of semiconductor engineers strut their stuff in Malacca’s own version of reality television game show – The Amazing Race.
The engineers emerged as champion in the debutant race known as “Malacca Tourism Association (MTA) Kaki Race 2015” held recently.
Engineer, Gregory Sim Lim Kuo, 37, said it was quite a challenging race just like the TV show “The Amazing Race” which comprises different mind boggling tasks to be accomplished.
“The task given taught us to think out of the box and be creative in our thinking.
“One of the challenging parts was memorising a poem given by a representative in the Peranakan Museum and we had to repeat the same sentence to a curator who will judge and give points,” he said after receiving a RM5,514 winner’s cheque at The Shore Shopping and Gallery.
The “MTA Kaki Race 2015” was organised by the Malacca Tourism Association in collaboration with Tourism Malaysia Malacca and Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia.
Sim noted that the race was fun-filled and something new for the state.
“My team enjoyed the beautiful sights of the heritage buildings within Malacca City.
“We also learned some facts of Malacca’s history while googling to find our answers to places as references from books were not enough and were not taught during our schooling days.
“We had ‘fear factor’ challenging tasks like picking up marbles from a container filled with worms and crickets,” he said.
Creative skills: A group of team trying to accomplish a task using rubber bands.
Sim noted that his crew of four, who are engineers from Texas Instruments Malacca, Micheal Chiam, Yoong Hon Leong and Goh Kwan Vui were no strangers to such races as they had been joining such events as a team for the past two years.
The event saw 120 participants comprising of 30 teams, which saw men and women taking part in a seven-kilometre race starting from The Shore Shopping Gallery, Jalan Bunga Raya, along circling Jonker Walk.
The participants took off in front of the The Shore Shopping and Gallery at 8am.
The first team clocked in at 10.35am while the last team arrived at 12.10pm.
Participants were also treated to a buffet lunch. The first and second teams won RM4,292 and RM3,202 respectively.
MTA president Madelina Kuah said the purpose of the event was to rediscover Jonker Walk in its present day businesses and expose current and new members to explore each other’s potential in helping the tourism industry as a ‘TEAM’.
“The event is consistent with achieving the aim and incentive of the Malacca state government to attract tourists to the state.
In addition, the event also examines the extent of the participants’ knowledge about tourism and tourist attractions in Malacca.
“Participants were also tested on their physical and mental capabilities where each participant is required to go through 15 checkpoints which was planned for the event earlier,” she said.
Kuah, who flagged off the race earlier, said it was a good event for friends and families to get together.
“We rarely have this kind of events in Malacca that could bring friends closer to each other,” she said,
She noted that the Malacca City was filled with historical attractions.
