When I read about Kuching South City being awarded a United Nations-backed “Tourist City Award” recently, I turned green with envy. Why can’t our city, which was once known as the cleanest in the country, attain such international or national recognition?
Some 100 pre-schoolers received their graduation certificates from Encik Aznan Hj Alias, Deputy Director of Education Perak during a concert held in their honour. They were students of Tadika Kinderjoy, Ipoh who had put up a superb show of on-stage talent for the benefit of parents and guests, numbering over a thousand. The end-of-term show […]
Colorectal cancer can occur anywhere in the large intestine and the rectum. It is the commonest cancer in males and the third commonest cancer in females after breast cancer and cervix cancer. About 1 million cases are reported annually worldwide. Almost all colorectal cancers begin as polyps. These are benign or non-cancerous growths which if left untreated can evolve into a cancer.
The Perak Tengah Community Rehabilitation Centre in Parit was a hive of activity recently when staff of Yayasan Bina Upaya Darul Ridzuan (YBU) and members of the Malaysian Association of Youth Clubs (MAYC) Parit Chapter dropped by unexpectedly. Their appearance was for a good reason – to conduct a joint gotong-royong for the well-being of […]

It is attributed to […]

It is stated that MB Dato’ Seri DiRaja Dr Zambry Abd Kadir presented MIC Ipoh Barat branch RM100,000 to upgrade Dataran Little India. Only about a couple of years ago MBI spent RM1.8M to upgrade Little India, including the Dataran. The traders […]
I am a resident of Ipoh who enjoys a bit of nature by way of some brisk walking at the Polo Ground and regular climbs up Kledang Hill where we can still be blessed with some fresh air and greenery and a suitable place for sweating it out after a long day of work and […]
The three-day Hari Inovasi Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh 2011 (Ipoh City Council Innovation Day 2011) held recently ended with the presentation of prizes to winners of a competition on innovative ideas. The competition was divided into nine categories. Winners received cash prizes and certificates of appreciation from Mayor Dato’ Roshidi Hashim. The primary objective of the […]
The Jazzy Sounds of Teresa Teng concert, sponsored by Andaman Property Management Sdn Bhd (Andaman Group), played to a packed audience of more than 400 at the Bentley Auditorium in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month. The charity concert was part of Andaman Group’s corporate social responsibility objectives to give back to the community in the […]
