Thumbs up Anything & Everything about Malaysia & more ..........

Report from The New Straits Times dated Wednesday 21 June 2006 :-

Surprised by our more 'active' women
21 Jun 2006


KUALA LUMPUR: "Sex is like a curry puff. You have all these little things that make it up," says urologist Dr Peter Ng, adding that it is a crucial element of a good marriage or relationship.

On the whole, both Malaysian men and women are happy with their sex lives.

According to the findings of the Global Better Sex Survey (GBSS), Malaysian women are the most sexually satisfied in the Asia-pacific region, while our men come in second after Singapore, and fourth after Indonesia, Australia and Singapore when asked whether they were "very satisfied".

What surprised Dr Ng, who was explaining the results of the survey commissioned by Pfizer Inc, is that Malaysian women do it more often than men.

"Malaysia is the only place in the world where women are having more sex. Men always outnumber women in frequency. It must be some sort of biased sampling," Dr Ng said.

The survey polled 12,563 people aged 25 to 74 from 27 countries to gauge their level of sexual satisfaction and gain an insight into people’s sexual needs and aspirations. There were 253 respondents from Malaysia.

Another surprise for Dr Ng was the fact that "older men, especially those above 40, seem to be having more sex than younger men" and added that "we must question that result. We also must take a look at the statistics on Malaysia because it says that 51 per cent of men, when they were asked the question, had not had sex in the past four weeks."

Both men and women are pretty much in agreement that the pleasuring should be mutual, with 64 per cent of Malaysian men thinking that it is important to satisfy their partner, and 66 per cent of women.

Malaysian men also seem to be quite generous, 52 per cent said it is their responsibility to satisfy their partners, and 50 per cent of women agreed.

Women give their men better marks for performance than they give themselves. Thirty-five per cent of men thought their ability to perform would decline as they age, but only 24 per cent of women thought it did. Forty-two per cent of the men give themselves good marks for learning with experience, though, but an equal number think experience doesn’t matter.

"The best sex occurs when couples are in communication and are emotionally connected, but the GBSS also shows that physical factors are important," concluded Dr Ng.

Thumbs up Theme Park venture in Johor Bahru on UEM World list

Report from The STAR dated Wednesday 21 June 2006 :-

Theme park venture in Johor Bahru on UEM World list

By NICK LEONG


KUALA LUMPUR: UEM World Bhd is in talks with “at least four” theme park operators on the development of its leisure and entertainment zone in Bandar Nusajaya, Johor.

Managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin said although discussions were still at the exploratory level, there was a general acceptance that Bandar Nusajaya was an excellent location for the operators.

“We are talking to more than four parties, including the big one that we are being speculated with (Disney).

“It will take some time (for the talks to concluded) because we have to talk from the commercial and financial standpoints,” he told reporters after the company AGM yesterday.

Asked if UEM World was in talks with Disney Tokyo or the parent company, Ahmad Pardas said there were talks at various levels.
“You start by talking with the party closest to you and then move to the epicentre,” he added.
He said it was hard to forecast how long the talks would last because it involved more than two parties.


“We have started to create interest and they are looking at the region seriously,” he said.
Bandar Nusajaya was taking shape compared with two years ago, he said, adding that the township would site the Johor government's new administrative centre, a medical city, and an education hub.

Thumbs up Wanita Malaysia lebih bernafsu

Laporan daripada Harian Metro bertarikh Rabu 21hb Jun 2006 :-

Wanita kita lebih bernafsu

KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita Malaysia lebih bernafsu dan sekali ganda lebih kerap melakukan hubungan seks dengan purata 4.4 kali sebulan berbanding lelaki hanya 2.6 kali sebulan.

Kekerapan perlakuan seks lelaki dan wanita negara ini yang mencapai purata 3.5 kali sebulan itu didedahkan dalam kaji selidik melalui telefon dalam Kajian Seks Lebih Baik Global Pfizer 2006, membabitkan 12,563 orang di 27 negara termasuk 253 rakyat Malaysia.

Perunding Urologi, Dr Peter Ng, berkata kajian juga menunjukkan 16 peratus wanita tidak puas hati dengan tahap ereksi pasangannya berbanding sembilan peratus lelaki yang berpuas hati dengan diri sendiri.

Katanya, sebanyak 14 peratus lelaki mengaku kadang kala ereksi mereka tidak cukup keras untuk hubungan seks berbanding pendapat lapan peratus wanita terhadap pasangan mereka.

Bagaimanapun, kajian itu menunjukkan 42 peratus rakyat Malaysia berusia 25 hingga 47 tahun amat puas hati dengan kehidupan seks mereka.

Katanya, rakyat Malaysia masih kekurangan 28.5 peratus daripada jumlah hubungan seks yang diperlukan dengan 13 peratus lelaki amat berminat meningkatkan pengalaman seksual mereka.

“Kesimpulannya, keputusan kajian di Malaysia menunjukkan tiada perbezaan dengan global di mana lelaki dan wanita Malaysia berpendapat mengekalkan ereksi sepenuhnya amat penting dalam hubungan seks yang baik dan memuaskan.

“Lelaki dan wanita rasa kekerasan ereksi sama pentingnya dengan kemampuan untuk mencapai dan mengekalkan ereksi.

“Bagi kedua-dua jantina ini, ada pertalian erat antara kekerasan ereksi dan kepuasan dalam hubungan seks,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sesi ‘Bicara Mengenai Seks: Perspektif rakyat Malaysia: Kajian Seks Lebih Baik Global Pfizer 2006’ di Hotel Le Meridien di sini, semalam.

Turut sama sebagai ahli panel sesi itu, Penasihat Perubatan Pfizer Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Dr Vicknesh Welluppilai dan pakar terapi seks dari Australia, Dr Rosie King.

Menurutnya, berdasarkan peratusan kekerapan perlakuan seks global sebanyak 6.47 kali sebulan berbanding Malaysia, Singapura, Indonesia, Hong Kong dan Thailand, Malaysia berada pada tahap paling rendah.

Katanya, Indonesia mencatatkan hubungan seks paling kerap iaitu 5.75 kali sebulan dengan lelaki lebih kerap iaitu 6.2 kali sebulan berbanding wanita 5.3 kali diikuti Singapura (4.55 kali sebulan - lelaki 4.8/wanita 4.3), Thailand (3.55 kali sebulan - lelaki 5.1/wanita 3.3) dan Hong Kong (3.55 kali sebulan - lelaki 4.3/wanita 2.8).

Bagaimanapun, katanya, kadar kepuasan seks tertinggi dijuarai rakyat Malaysia dengan 42 peratus berbanding Singapura (38 peratus), Thailand (32 peratus), Indonesia dan Hong Kong (masing-masing 27 peratus).

Dari segi tidak puas hati terhadap tahap kekerasan ereksi, Dr Ng berkata, Hong Kong mencatatkan peratusan paling tinggi iaitu 44 peratus lelaki tidak puas hati dengan ketegangan zakar sendiri dan 49 peratus wanita tidak puas hati dengan kekerasan ereksi pasangan.

Katanya, Thailand mencatatkan peratusan yang hampir sama dengan Malaysia dalam ketidakpuasan kekerasan ereksi diri dan pasangan iaitu sembilan peratus lelaki dan 13 peratus wanita berbanding Singapura (23 peratus lelaki/28 peratus perempuan) dan Indonesia (29 peratus lelaki/27 peratus perempuan).

Ketidakpuasan hubungan seks yang diakibatkan kegagalan lelaki mencapai kekerasan ereksi adalah penanda penting kepada pelbagai masalah kesihatan tersembunyi dan ia perlu diberi perhatian serius.

Pzifer adalah antara pelopor dalam kajian penjagaan kesihatan dunia yang memperkenal dan mengeluarkan ubat-ubatan preskripsi termasuk jantung, saraf, penyakit berjangkit, urologi dan kesihatan mulut.

Thumbs down Luar Piala Dunia, dalam aksi lucah

Laporan daripada Harian Metro bertarikh Rabu 21hb Jun 2006 :-

Luar Piala Dunia, dalam aksi lucah

SEBERANG JAYA: Sindiket pengedaran cakera padat video (VCD) lucah dikesan mengambil kesempatan sempena ‘kehangatan’ Piala Dunia 2006 untuk melariskan jualan bahan berkenaan.

Melalui taktik itu, imej Piala Dunia dipamer pada VCD berkenaan kebanyakannya tanpa disertai tajuk dipercayai bagi mengelirukan pihak berkuasa.

Dalam rampasan di Taman Sutera, di sini, Khamis lalu, Penguat Kuasa Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna (KPDNHEP) Seberang Prai menyangka VCD berkenaan adalah filem biasa.

Bagaimanapun, penguat kuasa terkejut selepas pemeriksaan mendapati VCD yang dipamer imej Piala Dunia sebenarnya filem lucah.

Jurucakap KPDNHEP Seberang Prai berkata, orang ramai yang membeli mungkin menyangka ia aksi Piala Dunia 2006 di Jerman tanpa menyedari ia sebenarnya filem lucah.

Katanya, jalan cerita VCD berkenaan pada awalnya sama seperti filem lain tetapi pertengahannya mengandungi unsur lucah.

Sehubungan itu katanya, peminat bola sepak tidak harus terpedaya dengan taktik digunakan kerana ia mungkin satu strategi peniaga untuk melariskan jualan kerana Piala Dunia 2006 mencuri perhatian penonton.

“KPDNHEP hanya mempunyai kuasa merampas VCD terbabit manakala tindakan lanjut boleh diambil Bahagian Kawalan Filem (BKF), Kementerian Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri dan Lembaga Penapisan Filem Nasional (Finas),” katanya kepada Harian Metro, semalam.

Dalam pada itu, Ketua Cawangan BKF negeri, Ngeh Kiet Fock, berkata pihaknya belum menerima aduan berhubung VCD lucah Piala Dunia 2006 tetapi akan terus menjalankan 'Ops Statik' bersama pihak berkuasa lain bagi mengesan penjualan bahan lucah.

Katanya, mengikut Seksyen 5 Akta Penapisan Filem 2002, peniaga yang didapati menjual bahan lucah boleh dikenakan denda minimum RM10,000 atau maksimum RM50,000 atau lima tahun penjara.

Bagi Seksyen 6(1) a membabitkan bahan publisiti filem tiada kelulusan Lembaga Penapisan Filem boleh didenda sehingga maksimum RM10,000.

“Ketika ini kita memberi tumpuan pada ‘Ops Statik’ dengan menempatkan pegawai di lokasi tertentu yang menjual VCD atau bahan lucah. Cara itu dilihat berkesan kerana peniaga takut beroperasi kerana bimbang dirampas,” kata Ngeh.

Orang ramai yang mempunyai maklumat mengenai penjualan VCD lucah boleh menghubungi pejabat BKF di talian 04-3322751.

Default Henti guna lambang ‘786’

Laporan daripada Berita Harian bertarikh Rabu 21hb Jun 2006 :-

Henti guna lambang ‘786’

JOHOR BAHRU: Peniaga Malabar Muslim di negeri ini diminta tidak lagi menggunakan logo `786' yang sering dianggap bertuah di kalangan masyarakat berkenaan dalam tempoh dua bulan akan datang.

Angka yang dipercayai berasal dari 'Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim' yang sering digunakan pada papan tanda perniagaan atau menjadi logo sesetengah persatuan Malabar itu akan diganti dengan logo baru apabila diwartakan tidak lama lagi.

Mufti Johor, Datuk Nooh Gadot, berkata pihaknya meminta masyarakat Malabar supaya mengelak menggunakan angka berkenaan kerana ia boleh membawa kekeliruan dan menimbulkan isu sensitif di kalangan umat Islam.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya juga meminta tiga persatuan Malabar yang dianggotai lebih 5,000 penduduk di negeri ini turut berperanan memberi penerangan mengenai arahan baru itu.

"Keputusan itu diambil selepas isu penggunaan angka 786 diperdebatkan oleh Jabatan Mufti Negeri Johor dengan pihak Lajnah Fatwa Negeri Johor selama beberapa bulan.

"Kami mengenal pasti beberapa perkara tidak disenangi mungkin timbul akibat penggunaannya secara berterusan pada masa depan. Penggunaan angka itu di kalangan penduduk Malabar sudah digunakan secara turun-temurun, terutama dalam bidang perniagaan.

"Walaupun tujuan penggunaan angka berkenaan lebih 50 tahun lalu tidak bermaksud buruk, ia boleh mengelirukan umat Islam selain menimbulkan isu sensitif," katanya yang mendakwa segelintir penduduk Malabar menganggap penggunaan angka itu boleh membawa tuah dan untung.

Beliau berkata demikian selepas merasmikan logo baru Jemaah Malabar Muslim Negeri Johor (JMMNJ) selain merasmikan mesyuarat agung tahunan persatuan itu kali ke-41 di Hotel Seri Malaysia, di sini, petang, kelmarin.

Sementara itu, Yang Dipertua JMMNJ, Maidin Hussen berkata, arahan pihak berkuasa mengenai angka berkenaan yang digunakan lebih 50 tahun lalu dipercayai akan mendapat kerjasama pelbagai pihak.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya meminta semua peniaga Malabar Muslim supaya lebih berhati-hati dengan penggunaan sebarang logo mahupun ayat yang dipetik dari Al-Quran dalam urusan perniagaan.

Default 'Reinstate Senai International Airport as a MAS hub'

Report from The New Straits Times dated Thursday 22 June 2006 :-

At the Johor State Assembly yesterday: 'Reinstate Senai as a MAS hub'

22 Jun 2006
Chuah Bee Kim


JOHOR is seeking an urgent meeting with Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy to reinstate Senai Airport as a major hub for Malaysia Airlines.

State executive councillor Tan Kok Hong said Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman had been scheduled to meet Chan on May 18, but the meeting was postponed.

Tan assured the House that concerted efforts were being made to reschedule the meeting soon to convince the ministry to recognise Senai Airport as a strategic national aviation hub.

It was announced in March that the Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu international airports would be the only main MAS hubs for trunk routes.

Under the domestic route rationalisation exercise, MAS will operate 19 trunk routes, while AirAsia has been entrusted with 96 low-cost operations.

Tan said MAS handled 285,566 passengers last year at Senai Airport, while Air Asia flew 75,039 passengers during the same period.

He said the traffic was especially high on the JB-Kuching sector, which recorded a 42.8 per cent increase during the first four months of this year, with 69,717 passengers compared with only 48,930 during the corresponding period last year.

AirAsia recorded a 22.6 per cent increase on this route, with 28,940 passengers between January and April compared with 23,669 passengers during the same period last year.

Tan said the cancellation of MAS’ services to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu from Johor Baru had deprived consumers of a choice, as many corporate passengers preferred the national carrier instead of Air-Asia.

He said the termination of MAS flights had adversely affected other sectors as well, including hospitality, food, transportation and entertainment.

"MAS flights should be reinstated as its customer base from Senai Airport stands at more than 75 per cent. The national carrier also handled more than 400 tonnes of cargo a month, with 65 per cent being imports and exports from Kuching and Kota Kinabalu."

He said for MAS not to serve Senai would negate the Federal Government’s intentions to develop Senai as an integral part of a southern regional logistics hub.

On foreign investment, Tan said Johor received RM5.8 billion in foreign direct investments last year, making it one of the most sought-after States in the country.

State executive councillor Freddie Long said Johor would position itself to receive the spillover of tourists from Singapore when the republic’s "integrated resorts" (casino) projects were fully operational.

The State would actively woo tourists from across the Causeway, he said.

"We will entice them with extended tours to Tanjung Piai, Taman Negara, islands off Mersing and Desaru," he said.

"We could also get tourists to stay in our five-star hotels, which have cheaper rates than those in Singapore due to the lower exchange rate."

Default Fake 50 sen coins surface

Report from The STAR dated Thursday 22 June 2006 :-

Fake 50 sen coins surface


KUALA LUMPUR: Check your pockets or coin pouch, you could be carrying fake 50 sen coins.

“We found out about the counterfeit 50 sen coins after traders came to our office and enquired why their coins had been rejected by parking meter machines in the Kuala Lumpur, Jinjang, Selayang and Petaling Jaya council areas.

“When we checked the coins, we found some differences between the original and the fake ones, such as the wau logo at the back is not as detailed.
PHONY ATTRACTION: A magnet test can determine whether a 50 sen coin is genuine because the magnet will attract the fake coin.
“When you drop the coins on the floor, there is a difference in the sound produced between the two,” said Kuala Lumpur Gerakan Youth chief Ma Woei Chyi yesterday.

He added that the best way to determine the authenticity of a coin was through a simple magnet test.

“The genuine coin will not react to the magnet, while the fake one will as we believe that the fake coin is made from cheaper raw materials, like iron.
“We suspect that these coins are forged and we want the public to be aware that such coins are in circulation,” he said.

Ma told the press yesterday that since last month, there had been five cases of traders enquiring about the authenticity of their 50 sen coins.

He urged Bank Negara to look into the matter and take action fast.
“Previously we saw fake RM1 coins. I hope the situation will be rectified before the public loses confidence in the 50 sen coin,” he said.

When contacted, a Bank Negara official said: “At this point, we cannot comment yet. But I would advise the public to lodge a police report if they believe that the 50 sen coins they have are not genuine.

“We work very closely with the police, and they have the authority to investigate the matter. The public can also help by saying where they got the coins from.”

She added that the incidences of fake 50 sen coins were isolated and the number of occurrences were very low.
“The magnet and sound test can be used to determine if the coin is genuine, but I urge the public to use the coins with confidence,” she said.

Default Women talk a lot more than men

Report from The STAR dated Thursday 22 June 2006 :-

Women talk a lot more than men


WOMEN talk a lot more than men, reported Utusan Malaysia.

In a report quoting Universiti Utara Malaysia public management and law faculty lecturer Associate Prof Dr Sabitha Marican, the paper said her eight-year study also revealed that women were more articulate at giving their opinions.

She said the characteristics of Malaysian women were not much different from that of their Western counterparts, who speak at least 20,000 words a day compared to only about 7,000 words a day spoken by men.

“The studies in Malaysia showed that women communicate more than men by way of giving advice, making criticisms and cajoling,” she told about 150 participants of a gender workshop in Baling on Tuesday

Default Tune Hotels to open first no-frills lodging in fourth quarter

Report from Business Times dated Thursday 22 June 2006 :-

Tune Hotels to open first no-frills lodging in fourth quarter

TUNE Hotels Sdn Bhd, a planned regional chain of no-frills hotel privately owned by a group of businessmen including AirAsia Bhd's chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Tony Fernandes, will open its first lodging in Kuala Lumpur by the fourth quarter of this year.

Tune Hotels on Monday started calling for tenders from pre-qualified contractors for construction of its flagship 180-room no-frills hotel in the city.

This confirms a Business Times report in April this year which said that the AirAsia CEO was to enter the budget hotel business.

"By 2010, Tune Hotels will establish a no-frills hotel in every major city and resort destination in Peninsular and East Malaysia," the tender notice added.

It is believed that the first hotel, to be located in the city centre, involves the takeover of an existing operational hotel and expanding the number of rooms.

The hotel openings are in Fernandes' personal capacity to synergise with low-cost carrier AirAsia's airline business.

The hotels will be called Tune Hotels.com, after AirAsia's holding company, Tune Air.

Business Times reported that a chain of 60 and 70 budget hotels is being planned, starting first in Malaysia before expanding across the region later.

Each hotel will have between 100 and 250 rooms, depending on the location and with room rates ranging between RM50 and RM100.

Tune Hotels is expected to either purchase or lease existing hotels and remodel them, or build completely new ones, as part of its plans to eventually have hotels in all AirAsia destinations.

The region's most successful low-cost carrier's domestic destinations include Penang, Langkawi, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.

Within the region, the airline flies to cities such as Phnom Penh, Bali, Phuket and Manila.

Fernandes was unreachable for comment.
