MARCHING ON INTO MARCH Just like that, we are already into the third month of the year. The holidays are over and it’s back to business as usual full steam ahead! It’s been two months since the new set of regulations and cooling measures have been implemented. Our recent Asia Property Market Sentiment Report for H1 of 2014 has shown that Malaysians are still digesting and coming to terms with the new measures and regulations. Aside from that, housing affordability continues to remain a major concern not just in Malaysia but in Asia as well. Find out more about the report findings in our upcoming issue, where we will dwell deeper into the matter and share just how Malaysians feel about Budget 2014 and how they perceive the property market.

Furthermore, it is also home to the first designated bicycle lanes in Johor and has healthy township parks equipped with amenities. The day was marked by an announcement by Dato’ Mohamed Khaled Nordin, the Menteri Besar of Johor that a total of RM1.5 million has been allocated by the Federal Government for the purpose of upgrading and

providing cycling lanes and pedestrian pathways in Iskandar Malaysia. He also launched the cycling lanes, pedestrian pathways and two recreational parks in Taman Seri Austin. The parks have been gazetted as smoke-free parks and are the first of their kind to be in a township in Iskandar Malaysia.

The first such private-public collaboration in the housing and property industry, the Sime Darby Property Housing-Income Index was developed to gain a better understanding of homeowners’ profiles in relation to owning a home in a total of 12 selected locations, mainly across the Klang Valley and Nilai. The Index found that taking into account current household spending trends, house prices and mortgage rates, certain groups of homebuyers interested in these areas have access to houses priced at 56 times their household income and can afford to spend up to 26% of their monthly household income to service a mortgage.

Homes in selected areas in Klang Valley are still accessible to homeowners who may be looking to upgrade or invest in a second home, according to a recent study spearheaded by Sime Darby Property

Additionally, the study identified strategic areas in Klang Valley which are considered not only accessible but have the potential to appreciate even further in value. These areas include Nilai, Denai Alam, Bukit Jelutong and Bukit Subang.

ALL NEW EXCLUSIVE BUYERS CLUB LAUNCHED BY iPROPERTY.COM MALAYSIA Malaysia is set to provide property buyers and investors a platform to get the best deals in town.

Main page of the iProperty Buyers Club website

The country’s No.1 property website, Malaysia, recently announced the launch of an all exclusive property buyers’ club. Aptly named the iProperty Buyers Club (IBC), this latest premier offering by Malaysia is strategically positioned to powerfully change the way property buyers and investors purchase property. According to iProperty Group’s CEO, Shaun Di Gregorio, the IBC, another innovative platform by Malaysia, is a group buying website that offers property buyers and investors a platform to get the best property deals in Malaysia. “By leveraging on the iProperty Group’s brand presence in Asia, we will be partnering with developers in Malaysia to jointly offer property buyers and investors a platform to get attractive discounts when buying property. We believe that there is power in numbers and we are leveraging

on this. At the end of the day, IBC seeks to address the needs of both our developers and consumers,” elaborated Di Gregorio. He added that IBC is different from other investor clubs as it is open to the general public, giving access to what was previously only available to a select few. “Today, members who join IBC do not need to pay a registration fee. All they are required to do is sign up, browse through the site and identify the property that they are interested in. Once they have done so, they register their interest and the team will be in contact to guide them through the whole process. After that, they will have 14 days to confirm their interest and place a down-payment. It’s hassle free and our customer consultants are on board to guide property buyers and investors every step of the way,” explained Di Gregorio. He added that since the company announced the soft launch of IBC, it has attracted over 30,000 members. It currently

has 10 deals listed on the site that can be easily accessed by anyone who joins. “We can see that Malaysians are always eager to get discounts and IBC is offering just that. At the same time, we will also be helping address the issue of unsold properties in the country,” said Di Gregorio. He added that according to a report released by the National Property Information Centre (Napic), it was revealed that the number of unsold properties nationwide in the first quarter of 2013 stood at 4.6 million residential units, excluding kampung and estate houses. “Both parties, buyers and developers, benefit from this platform because property buyers and investors will be able to purchase a property at a better rate, and developers will be able to sell their properties on a bulk basis,” shared Di Gregorio. Shedding more light on IBC, he explained that there will soon be many other attractive features added onto the website. In order

16 |

to provide greater access to information, the company is also looking at introducing an online booking platform and payment options. The site will also soon feature comprehensive information such as analytics and investor tools, as well as home and lifestyle deals. IBC is open to the general public worldwide. Interested property buyers and investors can visit to register as a member at no cost at all. Members will be privy to a compelling array of benefits, including special property deals, latest updates on new deals and newsletters. “With IBC, you now have access to exclusive savings on properties that were previously only available to a select few. Membership is free, and the benefits you get from being a member are tremendous. If you are in the market for properties and are looking for great deals, IBC is certainly the place to begin. The more people interested in the deal, the better the discounts. That’s the power in numbers,” urged Di Gregorio.

Titijaya Land Berhad

NATURALLY INSPIRED DEVELOPMENTS Taking their cue from Mother Nature, Titijaya Land Berhad makes greenery and water the respective focus of Embun @ Kemensah and H20 Residences. - BY ONG XIN YING As one of Malaysia’s leading developers with a proven track record, Titijaya Land Berhad has been inspired to deliver innovation and quality products since 2001. Two such subsequent offerings which exemplify the company’s drive to create stylish, functional and quality developments are Embun @ Kemensah and H2O Residences. caught up with Executive Director Charmaine Lim Puay Fung to learn more about these projects as well as the developer’s future plans. What are some of your company’s successes which you would like to highlight? Charmaine Lim Puay Fung: Fortunately, we have been able to enjoy success after success especially with our first high-

1 rise residential project E-Tiara Serviced Apartments in Subang Jaya in 2004 which was fully sold out in about half a year followed by more projects in the same area such as Casa Tiara Serviced Suites which is located right next to E-Tiara. Additionally, our developments have been recognised by several awards. First Subang, a mixed commercial development which was launched in 2007 and which is also the location of our main office, won the Highly Commended Office Development Malaysia Award by the International Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television in 2011.

2008 saw the launch of One SOHO, another one of our Subang Jaya projects which was accorded the Silver Award for the Residential Interior Category of the MSID Interior Design Awards in the same year as well as the Best Mixed Use Development, Malaysia at the Bloomberg Television Asia Pacific International Property Awards 2010. Subang Parkhomes, our first low rise and low density condominiums development which was launched in 2009 managed to scoop the Highly Commended Apartment

3 Malaysia Award by the International Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television in 2011. Its Phase 1 has been handed over while Phase 2 has achieved 70% of sales thus far. Last but not least, we were listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad in November 2013 – a truly significant milestone and achievement not just for the company but for the people in it whose hard work made such a thing possible in the first place.

iP: What can you tell me about Embun @ Kemensah and H20 Residences? Charmaine: Our goal with Embun @ Kemensah is to bring nature into even each individual home and we succeeded in this endeavour by covering 2.5 of its total 14.72 acres of land with lush greenery which surrounds and infuses the entire gated and guarded residential development. Comprised of courtyard villas and semi-detached villas, this project in Taman Melawati also boasts a clubhouse equipped with top-notch amenities, yoga and recreation decks as well as landscape features such as bicycle lanes and jogging tracks which promote socialising and healthy lifestyle choices among residents. H20 Residences, which stands for ‘Haus 2 Own’, is our 6-acre high rise development in Ara Damansara which we conceptualised with water as the defining theme. This is evident in the prevalence of water elements

5 and water-related features around the project as well as the ice cube-inspired design seen in all four of its 15-storey blocks and its façade. There are a total of 1,395 freehold units available with Blocks A to C comprising serviced apartments while Block D is comprised of Small Office Home Office (SOHO) units. Retail lots have also been added in order to make life convenient for residents. This project has the additional appeal of having a high level of accessibility thanks to nearby highways and the close proximity of the future Ara Damansara and Lembah Subang Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations. Additionally, it is located opposite the newly completed Tesco store and is surrounded by other commercial components such as Oasis, Citta Mall and more. With this development, a heavy emphasis is placed on facilities which we also infused with the aqua element and as such incorporated signature facilities such as a aqua gym, a children’s water play area, a hydro spa within the pool and a wading pool that comes with its own water slide. We have even enhanced the swimming pool by adding a LCD screen which will constantly feature marine life in order to give residents the experience of a deep sea dive every time they go for a swim. H20’s non-aqua but still unique amenities include a skateboard play area, putting green and

Interested parties will be pleased to know that we will be launching Phase 2 of Embun @ Kemensah which comprises 52 units of the project’s 2- and 3-storey semi-detached homes as well as the serviced apartment and SOHO units of H20 Residences sometime in the middle of this year. At present, both developments are already open for registration. iP: Aside from the launches of Embun @ Kemensah’s Phase 2 and H20 Residences, what are your plans for the rest of 2014 and beyond? Charmaine: We will be launching TRIO @ Shah Alam, a self-sustaining mixed development comprising two blocks of serviced apartments, an office block, a hotel and a shopping mall, in stages beginning with the serviced apartments in the second half of 2014. Another exciting launch in the third or fourth quarter of this year is Mutiara Residences in Klang which comprises 39 units in total of 21/2-storey terrace houses. As for our plans for 2015, we will be focusing on strategic land acquisitions as well as expanding our horizons to the north or south of Klang Valley.

Using The Convenience Of Space

USING THE CONVENIENCE OF SPACE Finding a good deal of office spaces are now a breeze with these five simple methods.

working in an office at all. Review which employees really have to be at a physical office, and which ones can telecommute from home or a shared office space location. This can help save on overhead by reducing the amount of space needed.

Whether it’s due to companies downsizing, former corporate workers receiving buyout packages or someone simply deciding that now is the right time, increasingly more individuals are deciding to go into business for themselves. And one of the early challenges these small business owners and entrepreneurs will face is establishing a professional image to help get their burgeoning business off the ground. Sure, you can establish a home-based office, but what do you do when you need a more professional environment to meet with a prospective client, or how do you deal with every day distractions like kids, barking dogs or television? “Securing professional office space does not have to be an expensive proposition. There are cost-effective options like fully furnished, movein ready offices that can help small business owners establish the professional presence they need to help legitimise their business,” said Jeff Doughman, Regional Vice President for Regus. “The good news is these options are available for a fraction of the cost of leasing traditional space.”

When looking for office space there are some common pitfalls that small business owners should avoid. To reduce expenses and secure room for future growth, the office experts at Regus encourage entrepreneurs to use the “SPACE” test below to help ensure they’re getting the right office, at the right price, before they sign on the dotted line: S – SAVINGS There are ways to limit upfront costs and save money beyond the price of rent. If a traditional lease, which typically lasts five to 10 years, makes sense, negotiate a smaller upfront deposit, which usually consists of six months rent or up to half of the total cost of the lease. Businesses also can save up to 60% on office space costs by using ready-to-work space that includes furnishings, most office equipment and maintenance. P – PRODUCTIVITY Many business owners still want all employees to work in the same place at the same time, but the best office space is structured to help employees be more productive – which may mean not

A – ADDRESS Having a KLCC address in KL City Centre or working from the Gurney Paragon Centre in Georgetown Penang can add a level of prestige to your business that’s hard to calculate in Malaysian Ringgit. But leasing traditional spaces in those key business districts may still be cost prohibitive. Consider using a virtual office instead of leasing physical space to obtain a Jalan Barat address in Petaling Jaya, or an “office” in PJ Exchange centre. C – CLAUSES Not understanding the fine print in your leasing contract could mean unwelcome and unexpected fees at a later date. Clauses in your leasing agreement dictate everything from when rent is due to limitations of use and your maintenance obligations. It’s important to read and understand all clauses before signing your lease. E – EXPANSION If your business changes drastically, will your space change with you? Ask your potential landlord about what options exist to expand, or shrink, your space should the need arise. Consider exploring other leasing options, such as subleasing or shared spaces. Adding or contracting space as needed prevents business owners from paying for space they aren’t using at startup or cramming into a small space when growth exceeds expectations.

The Property Market: Off To A Slow Start

THE PROPERTY MARKET: OFF TO A SLOW START Previndran Singhe, founder and CEO of Zerin Properties weighs in on what 2014 has in store for Malaysia’s property market. BY ONG XIN YING

1 Since the year began, 2014 has been a rough road in regards to Malaysia’s property scene largely due to the implementation of the Budget 2014 measures that directly affect it. Two of the most talked-about cooling measures are the increase in the Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) rates, which was designed to reduce speculation in the market, and the prohibition of Developer Interest Bearing Scheme (DIBS).

44 |

Additionally, the threshold for property purchases by foreigners has been raised from RM500,000 to RM1 million, while on the affordable housing front, a plan to establish a National Housing Council (NHC) dedicated to developing strategies and action plans for the building of affordable housing has been announced. AN OVERVIEW Speaking at EMKAY Group’s Chinese New Year celebrations on 12th February 2014, Previndran Singhe shared his professional opinion and insights on the Malaysia’s property market outlook for 2014. He drew attention to the fact that when comparing the third quarter results of 2012 to those of 2013, there had been a decrease in the volume of transactions but an increase in the value of said transactions. This slowdown, he said, was likely due to the tighter mortgage lending guidelines by the central bank, Bank Negara

Malaysia such as the 70% cap on the loan-tovalue ratio which was implemented last year. As for the commercial property sub-sector, the elections early last year had little impact on the buoyancy of Klang Valley’s commercial office market in 2013, as did the influx of new supply in the form of office project completions in that year. Office space leasing underwent a rebound post-elections as well, with much of the business coming from the oil and gas, information technology, and banking sectors. WHAT TO EXPECT? Previndran opined that the first half of 2014 would be a sluggish time for the property market as it adjusted to the various cooling measures that have come into effect and it would only pick up sometime in the middle of next year. He voiced expectations that the residential property sub-sector would be the primary driver of the country’s 2014 real estate and construction activities, largely due to the anticipated flood of first-time homebuyers taking advantage of the various affordable housing initiatives implemented in the Budget. In spite of the cooling measures, he believed that property prices in areas such as Bangsar, Taman Desa and Cheras would continue to hold due to factors such as location and scarcity, but the main hotspots would undoubtedly be places in close proximity of future Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension stations. He went on to say that the secondary property market would remain largely unaffected by any of these factors and would continue to perform as it always has.

threshold price for foreigners, but he went on to add that soon enough the situation would return to its original state as foreign investors come to realise it would not really change things. PROBLEMS AND SUGGESTIONS Ultimately, Previndran was of the opinion that Malaysia’s property market is in severe need of a ‘reboot’ to return it to a state where the long-term investment was the predominant mind-set among buyers and investors. He added that he did not believe the cooling measures would work as intended as the primary problem – a lack of supply – would remain unsolved. This situation, however, has the chance of changing for the better especially in light of numerous factors which are expected to boost the property market in the near future. Aside from the MRT and LRT extension lines, proposed new highways such as the Damansara-Shah Alam Highway (DASH) and Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Expressway (SUKE) as well as the proposed High Speed Rail (HSR) connecting Malaysia and Singapore will be a huge boon to the local property market. In terms of foreign investments, the ETP’s contributions to Malaysia’s economic growth and InvestKL’s activities should help increase international interest in the local property market, which already has the attention of investors from China and the Middle East.


Previndran Singhe

The first half of the year, Previndran noted, would be particularly difficult for Kuala Lumpur’s commercial property sub-sector due to the large incoming supply of new office space but was confident it would bounce back in the second half thanks to Malaysia’s robust economy and the implementation of initiatives under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). He went on to add that green buildings in prime locations in particular would be in great demand. Early 2014 would not be kind on Iskandar Malaysia as well due to the new RM1 million

The significance of first impressions is something that is routinely stressed in myriad fields and situations, and homes are not an exception. The entryway to your home is the first thing to greet your visitors and guests and as such it should deliver the warmest welcome possible. Much like the introductory pages of a book, the entryway sets the tone for the rest of your home; should it fail at accomplishing that, it will effectively sour the overall impression your guests have of your abode. As such, here are several methods you can employ in order to make the entryway of your home more inviting to anyone who stops by. KEEP IT TIDY A tight and clutter-ridden entryway is a bad introduction to have for one’s home as it immediately gives visitors the sense of being overwhelmed and leads them into expecting the rest of your home to be just as chaotic. As such, it is for the best that you keep this area as spacious and clean as possible by reducing the number of items that tend to pile up there. A good start would be to get a closet to keep all your footwear in instead of leaving them scattered in front of your door. AVOID DARK OVERTONES Guests want to feel warm and welcome whenever they arrive at someone’s home, and unless it is Halloween or you are throwing a supernatural- or spooky-themed party, you should avoid making the entryway so dark. Additionally, any windows should be dressed with light-fabric or light-coloured curtains in order to let natural sunlight into the home in the morning and create a brighter mood at night. Wall lighting which emits a soft, warm glow is also an option, but if you prefer overhead lighting you should use a more

decorative piece to prevent it from being too harsh. PUT UP A MIRROR OR TWO Mirrors are a classic but effective means of making small spaces look bigger than they really are, and entryways are no exception. Hang a large mirror on the wall, ideally over a large piece of furniture, to achieve this effect. As an added bonus, it will reflect any light in the vicinity around, making the entryway a brighter space all around. ADD A PERSONAL TOUCH Another thing that both makes your house inviting to your guests and a true ‘home’ to you is the presence of bits and bobs that say something about the person living there. Put a nice table or small display case against a wall in the entryway and decorate it with things that reflect who you are such as trinkets from past holidays.

are good choices as they are able to hide any collected dust and dirt easily, but the classic ‘Welcome’ mat is also an option. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF SCENT Our sense of smell has a direct connection to our brains – with one whiff, we are immediately transported to another place or a treasured memory of our past. This makes it a crucial element in making people feel welcome somewhere; scents such as those of freshly-baked cookies or a home-cooked meal invoke the feelings of comfort and relaxation linked to the concept of home. While you cannot always be cooking or baking, you can employ scented candles, air fresheners or even fragrant flowers to achieve the same result. Just be careful not to overdo it as an overwhelmingly strong scent will have the opposite effect.

BRING THE OUTDOORS INSIDE Most entryways lead directly into the living room, making them the transition point between it and the great outdoors. Enhance this connection by putting large floor plants in this area if the space allows for it. Small potted plants or flowers on a shelf or table near the front door work just as well; if you have no particular preference for a certain flower, go with something that has vibrant colours. TAKE THE FLOOR INTO CONSIDERATION When people consider beautifying any part of their home, the one surface they tend to forget about is the one they are stepping on. While your entryway’s flooring may already have some character, be it from hardwood, tiles or marble, it can be further enhanced with a nice floor runner, carpet or rug. Oriental-style or patterned ones

Malaysia’s Heavy Hitter

of 2014


Penang: Pacing Forward

PENANG: PACING FORWARD With all that seems to be mushrooming around the area, 2014 may just be dubbed the ‘Year of Penang’. - BY CAROLINE CHAN Penang is one of Malaysia’s most developed and economically significant states. Its well-developed infrastructure supports multinational corporations, educational institutions, medical centres, manufacturing hubs and a vibrant hospitality industry. Penang has successfully embraced modernity while retaining its heritage and traditions. Its colonial past as a Straits Settlement gives Penang a fascinating fusion of Eastern and Western charms that appeal to both Malaysians and foreigners. Despite the many economic opportunities accorded by market centres such as the

50 |

capital city of Kuala Lumpur and the southern corridor of Iskandar, Penang has successfully retained its local population while attracting outside talent. With its golden beaches, rich cultural heritage, a multi-ethnic population and a thriving commercial landscape, the island state offers an idyllic setting to live, work and raise a family in. Penang’s appeal has created a robust demand for its real estate. Property prices in Penang began showing a notable increase in the mid-2000s with areas on Penang Island, particularly Georgetown, experiencing the greatest

appreciation. Cooling measures introduced in Budget 2014 include an increase in the Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) from 15% to 30% for the disposal of property within the first 3 years of holding, as well as 20% and 15% for the fourth and fifth year respectively. Removal of the Developer Interest Bearing Scheme (DIBS) and the rise in the minimal purchase price for foreigners from RM500,000 to RM1 million are additional measures which were implemented and are expected to have an initial impact on property prices in Penang. When speaking at the Real Estate and Housing Developer’s Association (Penang) annual conference on the Property Outlook for 2014, its Chairman, Datuk Jerry Chan, said that a slowdown in sales transactions is anticipated but he expects property prices to remain stable. He attributed the substantial increase in land prices and raw materials in the last five years as well as scarcity of land as the main factors in sustaining prices. Current land prices in Tanjong Tokong, Tanjung Bungah and other prime locations in the northeast district are between RM500 and RM1,000 per sq ft while land is priced from RM120 per sq ft. In an effort to prevent the adverse effects of a property bubble and to attract genuine buyers as well as deter speculators, on 1st February 2014, the Penang state government introduced new sub sale laws which impose a 2% levy on any property purchased from that day onward and sold within 5 years from the date of the Sales & Purchase Agreement. Additionally, homes priced RM400,000 and below on the island and RM250,000 and below on the mainland which are classified as affordable homes in Penang, must not be sold for at least five years. This regulation also applies to homes purchased under public housing, priced under RM72,500, where the nonsale period is extended to 10 years. In both cases, homeowners who wish to sell their properties may make an appeal to the state government for consent to sell.

The new policies have been well received by the public as well property professionals as they serve to discourage foreign purchasers who buy property in bulk for short-term speculative intentions. The general consensus is that genuine foreign purchasers who purchase for occupancy purposes or for long term investment will not be discouraged by the initial acquisition cost. The second Penang Bridge has contributed significantly to the rapid increase in prices on the island. Since its announcement in 2007, property prices have rapidly increased on both sides of the bridge. In Batu Maung on the island, land prices have appreciated by 500% while in Batu Kawan, in southern Seberang Prai, the increase is about 700%. The opening of the bridge in November last year further boosted prices. The spillover impact of the bridge also includes the opening of new townships consisting of mixed residential development such as Bandar Cassia and Pearl City, which are set to transform the southern part of Seberang Prai into Penang’s next property hotspot. The general industry view is that Penang’s property sector, especially its residential market for 2014, is likely to be cautious but optimistic. Prices are expected to grow but not as rapidly as seen previously. Longterm investors continue to view Penang as a lucrative market and the new RPGT rates will see homeowners holding onto their properties, thus reducing supply while creating a healthy demand.

Penang: Malaysia’s Heavy Hitter of 2014

PENANG: MALAYSIA’S HEAVY HITTER OF 2014 As Penang slowly transforms into a little nation of its own, its real estate industry might just be its biggest feather on an already impressive hat. - BY BRANAVAN ARULJOTHI

The property market is seemingly still on the fence as far as investments are concerned. The full effects of the tightening and cooling measures by the government and Bank Negara Malaysia have yet to be realised, making it an ideal time for otherwise hasty investments. Penang’s rapid development towards a new property frontier is imminent and questions are beginning to pop up. Will the banning of mortgage-bearing schemes stunt the island’s growth? What about Penang’s stateimplemented sub-sale laws? Dato’ Sri Gavin Tee, President and Founder of Swhengtee International, and Mark Saw, the Penang State branch Chairman of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) spoke with on Penang’s unique features and why its state goals will be achieved.

52 |

When did Penang see its property market boom, and what was the catalyst for the spike in the industry? Dato’ Sri Gavin Tee (GT): Penang has always been a competitive state as far as real estate is concerned. Foreigners and locals alike have made Penang a great destination for migration. Since 2007, Penang has welcomed a lot of foreign investors. These investors mostly arrived from Europe, Japan and Hong Kong. While things like Penang’s great tourism industry - which has recently attracted people from places like China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia - and the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme might have piqued their initial interest, they eventually started investing in properties in the area. One of the reasons for this spike is definitely the preservation of Penang’s history. What in the development stages may

1 have seemed pointless has now turned into factors that add value to Penang investments. Thanks to the declaration of Georgetown as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Penang’s preservation of its old architecture is now helping sustain the prices of its buildings. An example would be its heritage hotels that have a far higher asking price than even some fivestar outlets. This is a unique feature that is almost exclusive to Penang and Malacca. Property-wise, we have to remember that Penang is an island, and that island development has its limitations which is what will result in property price appreciation. Additonally, with Penang

2 becoming more urbanised and globalised in areas beyond just the island, prices will definitely continue to increase. What is it about Penang that makes it different from its counterparts Kuala Lumpur and Iskandar? GT: It is more valuable as far as history, culture and people are concerned. Tourism is also heavily developed there. As a financial centre, Penang is nowhere near Iskandar or Kuala Lumpur in terms of government focus. As far as tourism is concerned, however, Penang is at a far bigger advantage than other tourism-centric places such as Malacca and Kota Kinabalu. Southeast Asia is a leader in hi-tech industries and Penang has the potential to join in the game. In a recent speech of mine, I stated that Penang can become Asia’s version of Hollywood as foreigners have filmed quite a few movies in Penang. This year Penang should focus on commercial properties such as resorts, malls, hotels and medical facilities. Mark Saw (MS): Penang has a rich colonial history which, together with the UNESCO Heritage Listing for Georgetown, continues to allow investors to have a sense of belonging and creating history when they invest in Penang. In comparison, Iskandar is a totally new frontier land which requires a

Penang: Malaysia’s Heavy Hitter of 2014

lot of promotional effort from the Federal and State Governments as well as the developers in order to ensure its success. Kuala Lumpur, as the capital, always attracts different types of investors compared to those looking at Penang. How will the new sub-sale law in Penang affect potential investments in Penang in 2014? Will this affect the prices of other housing projects in any way? MS: Landed house prices will most likely remain static for the next six months before continuing on an upward trend. However, there may be some price adjustments for strata properties depending on the location. Will the revised real property gains tax (RPGT) rates and banning of the developers interest bearing scheme (DIBS) change anything in Penang’s property market? GT: There are many townships being developed in Penang such as Batu Kawan and its success depends on the kinds of developments it creates. Residential developments in Penang can be quite expensive but I do not expect a burst of the property bubble. Having said that, I also do not expect prices to drop, but the developments that can attract foreign interests will keep the commercial businesses ahead, especially since this sector will not be severely affected by the 2014 cooling measures. This is important because of competition from neighbouring nations such as Thailand which, once it solves its political plight, will definitely rise to the occasion. Cambodia and The Philippines are also strong competitors. Inflation here seems inevitable. Prices are increasing so it really is about the cost of operations which may increase. I do not think the whole market will get affected, but transactions will definitely decrease. Hopefully, however, this is to the advantage of our people as it should enable our people to acquire good properties, especially those who use properties for commercial purposes as those help drive the economy forward. We cannot depend solely on foreign investments. As with Medini in Iskandar and its exemptions, the cooling measures

54 |

are closing the doors to locals in favour of foreign investments. Penang, on the other hand, protects local interests and develops the economic centre as an island that opens its doors to the world. That said, I think the measures are good as they benefit the people and general homebuyers. It may not be fair to certain segments of the population such as new couples who want to upgrade a home, but a policy cannot be perfect and some

things need to be done. The RPGT revision is a great move to reduce speculation. We do not want the prices of homes to grow as quickly as they have over the past few years, but for us to achieve world-class city status, prices have to reach international prices like it has in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore.

seem to be made with good intentions, but sometimes policies do not work in the best of ways.

I am actually more concerned that people may delay disposal as there will be less supply in the market. These implementations

Penang is a popular destination for the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme. Will the revised floor price of

MS: Yes, as I believe they will sort out the boys from the men in terms of serious investors versus speculators. In the long term, it will be good for the market.

Penang: Malaysia’s Heavy Hitter of 2014

foreign investments (RM500,000 to RM1 million) affect potential investors? GT: For Penang, it has always been RM1 million for condominiums and RM2 million for landed properties. This benefits Penang because foreigners will spend that amount to invest in Perak, Pahang and the like, so they may as well invest in Penang. This makes Penang even more competitive. Penang should focus on MM2H even more through more cultural offerings rather than more financially-driven products.

It is fairer to use percentage in terms of value of purchase. 3% is not a very high amount, but in Malaysia this is the highest as far as foreign purchases are concerned. Even though Penang has all the makings of a great investment, it is not the first choice for foreign investors; those from places like Taiwan and Hong Kong prefer Kuala Lumpur and Iskandar. Penang needs more attractive policies for foreign investments, but in the right locations with the right properties that can generate revenue for the island.

Is the foreign investment application fee, which is now a 3% levy, a better option than the previously allocated RM10,000 per property, and if so, how? GT: Going by percentage is always fairer than fixed amounts. Applying a RM10,000 levy on a 400-sq ft property and charging the same for a 10,000-sq ft unit is not fair. On the flip side, management fees go by sq ft and that is unfair. For example, a 3-bedroom condominium with five residents has a fee value which is only a third of the fee for a penthouse with the same number of residents.

MS: Yes, a levy will ensure all foreign investors take stock and properly study investments before investing. In the past, the RM10,000 per property sum was too low when converted into US dollars, Australian dollars or UK Pounds Sterling.

Many Penangites claim that the prices of houses are too high. What is your opinion on this, and what can be done to remedy it? GT: Infrastructure can help locals purchase homes. Transportation costs are heavy when countries begin to develop and that increases expenses. People choose locations

ready to pay the asking price. So as long as a free economy reigns, one must allow it to find its own equilibrium. When do you foresee completion of the Second Penang Bridge (E28), and will its accessibility affect the prices of houses in Batu Kawan and its surrounding areas? GT: The prices have gone up even since its announcement. In the long term, however, it really depends on the upcoming economic activities in the area. The bridge can be a link or it can just be a way to reduce traffic. If it has well-planned commercial activities and job opportunities, then chances are it will benefit its residents even if prices go up. by taking vehicle traffic into account. Housing costs should ideally be 10% of an income, but if you are spending RM1,000 on rent, you are probably spending RM1,000 on vehicular expenses. If the government wants to reduce the strain, they should work towards building a more solid transportation system. This will enable residents to stay away from the prime areas and still be able to access it when they need to. You can build a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) or Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems or even a tunnel. This will help younger people own houses outside of Gurney, Georgetown and Bayan Lepas but still work in the commercial centre. MS: Penangites will always claim prices are high but history has proved that every time they go up a notch there is a willing buyer

MS: The immediate surrounding areas of Batu Kawan have already seen land prices shoot up in the past few years and this will continue once the Second Bridge is opened. We have already seen a new influx of investments into the area, especially with the recent announcement of an IKEA branch which is set to open in five years’ time. Surrounding areas like Simpang Empat and Juru will see increased property values and Batu Kawan house prices should of course see an increase as well.

Mah Sing Group Berhad

PENANG’S EXPEDITED EVOLUTION Mah Sing Group Berhad gives Penang a nudge forward in its race to soar above its contemporaries. Dubbed as the “Pearl of the Orient”, Penang has always been the “apple of the eye” for both locals as well as tourists. Over the last two decades, Malaysia’s leading developers have also been attracted to the island’s charm. A self-sufficient island, Penang has proven to be an ideal location for business, residence and tourism. Today, Penang is recognised as one of Malaysia’s property hotspots and has earned the status of top property market in the country, resulting in a strong influx of foreign and local investors flocking to the island.


58 |


A METROPOLITAN TRANSFORMATION On par with the country’s growth in density, Penang has also experienced a significant increase in population resulting in strong demographic and employment data revealing sustainable levels of interest in properties. Leveraging on this current scenario, the Mah Sing Group has acquired a land bank in Jawi, to be developed into the RM400 million integrated development of Southbay East – envisioned as the city of the future. This is a welcome impetus for the Island state as the main economic driver within the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER).


PRIME REAL ESTATE In view of the rising demand for premium residential and commercial developments in the island and mainland of Penang, several prestigious projects have been unveiled by the Mah Sing Group. These projects include Residence@Southbay, with a grossdevelopment-value (GDV) of RM2.67 billion, comprising 288 three-storey superlink homes with spacious dimensions. Also set to be completed in 2014 is Legenda@Southbay, featuring 76 magnificent three-storey resort bungalows in Batu Maung, Penang. An upcoming development that is open for registration of interest - the RM280 million Icon Residence Penang project. Feringghi Residence and The Loft@Southbay are built as sustainable developments with unique features to promote healthy and natural living, whilst conserving energy and water as well as reducing carbon footprints.

4 1 The Loft@Southbay redefines coastal living with its low-dense, high-rise setting 2 The integrated development of Southbay ushers commuters from the Second Penang Bridge just 1km away 3 Legenda@Southbay offers residents of the 76 resort bungalows a cosy, boutique feel within a gated and guarded enclave 4 The Residents’ Clubhouse in Legenda@ Southbay provides unparalleled privacy and exclusivity

FERINGGHI RESIDENCE Strategically located just off the famous Feringghi beach on Penang Island is the low-density Feringghi Residence. Surrounded by lush greenery and a breath-taking view of the beach-front, the development offers discerning buyers and investors a taste of a premier lifestyle amidst the highlights of Penang island. Feringghi Residence comprises low-rise condo villas and high-rise resort condominiums. Inspired by the throngs of tourists and the island-paradise feel of Penang, Feringghi Residence consists of residential units measuring from 1,510 sq ft to 1,752 sq ft.

Mah Sing Group Berhad

The development boasts 6 thematic gardens that lend the landscape an elegant and sophisticated touch. The residents’ Clubhouse promises a host of facilities and community-building features. The deft offer of both low-rise and high-rise homes is a winning combination and a unique concept which has received excellent response from buyers and investors. Thus far, piling work for Precinct 2’s resort villas are in currently in progress. Of these villas, only limited units are still available. THE LOFT@SOUTHBAY The Loft@Southbay is an exclusive seaview residential suites development located 1 kilometre away from the Second Penang Bridge, 3 kilometres from the Bayan Lepas Free Trade Zone and approximately 5 kilometres from the Penang International Airport – a sterling location for city dwellers. The low-density high-rise development within the integrated Southbay development offers discerning buyers and investors a unique blend of residential homes alongside lifestyle options of Southbay East’s commercial, retail and corporate features. The Loft comprises residential units measuring from 1,378 sq ft to 1,680 sq ft, complemented by a luxurious range of facilities and conveniences which include The Cascade – a resplendent blend of water features and pools as well as other community-building facilities. The Loft@ Southbay is priced from RM960 per sq ft. Recognising the demand for space and quality living conditions, Mah Sing’s developments prominently feature a lowdensity theme which is evident in Feringghi Residence and the developments in Southbay East. These gated and guarded developments offer buyers peace of mind, a strong sense of security and well-being, complemented by unique layout designs, attractive external facades, comprehensive in-house facilities, high-quality workmanship and well-planned residential as well as commercial precincts. STRATEGIC LOCALITY, EXCELLENT ACCESSIBILITY Located on the southeastern section of Penang island, the developments of Southbay are conveniently tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Penang’s central

60 |


6 business district, yet still within easy access and a comfortable distance from various amenities. From its humble past as a fishing village just 20 years ago, Batu Maung is now set to welcome elegant and sophisticated developments such as Southbay. Southbay and its exclusive suite of developments are within a few minutes’ drive from reputable schools, the free trade zone as well as business centres and retail hubs in the area. Popular shopping hotspots in the vicinity include Giant hypermarket, Queensbay Mall, the Bukit Jambul Complex and Sunshine Square. Other conveniences include eateries, restaurants, convenience stores, the Sungai Nibong bus terminal and Hospital Pantai Mutiara. Southbay and the Batu Maung vicinity are easily accessible via Penang’s excellent network of highways and access roads. Batu Maung is also home to the Second Penang bridge, which was launched on 1st March 2014. The added route via the Second Penang Bridge is expected to tremendously increase accessibility to and from the development.

WISE INVESTMENTS The suites of developments within Southbay are excellent investment options owing to its strategic location, easy accessibility and great potential for capital appreciation. Feringghi Residence is a good investment for those who wish to capitalise on the draw of tourism whilst Southbay’s developments are a good choice for those seeking an abode close to economic activities and the high-tech corridor of Bayan Lepas. Meanwhile, investments on the mainland introduce investors to township schemes, due to lower land costs, and more space for creativity. Mainland Penang also features more mature industrial and residential areas, leading to a proliferation of facilities and jobs, resulting in good supply and steady rental yields. The two Penang bridges are a boon to the developments on the island as they link key industrial and commercial areas such as the Prai industrial estates and Butterworth on the mainland. Batu Uban, Bayan Lepas, Sungai Ara and Sungai Nibong areas are exhibiting encouraging growth, and the profusion of new townships. HIGHLIGHTS OF PENANG Penang offers investors a unique opportunity to capitalise on the island’s rich cultural heritage, scenic beaches and wide variety of authentic cuisine – fuelling a vibrant tourism industry. With the increased pace of development in Penang, the island boasts high-tech parks, industrialised sectors and an advanced healthcare system, making Penang a sought-after location for both tourists and locals. ABOUT THE DEVELOPER Recognising the vast potential of Penang is Mah Sing Group Berhad – a company that has set in place a structured framework of strategic plans to gradually develop Penang into a bustling metropolis. Incorporated in 1991 and listed on the main market of Bursa Malaysia, Mah Sing is Malaysia’s leading property developer at the forefront of building quality homes and prime commercial developments in the country’s hottest locations.

Sunway Wellesley and Sunway Cassia

SUNWAY CONTINUES TO GROW WITH PENANG’S COMMUNITIES Well-known for its astounding transformation of a previously derelict tin-mine to a worldrenowned, award-winning resort city in Bandar Sunway, Sunway Property has been part of Penang’s rapid development for three decades. Starting with the completion of Sunway Hotel in Georgetown in 1994, Sunway has grown to be a familiar brand name to Penangites. In 1998, Sunway completed its second hospitality development, Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya and in 2007, the developer opened its first retail development, Sunway Carnival Mall. Today, in addition to the hospitality and retail developments, Sunway has completed a total of seven residential projects in Penang, delivering close to 800 homes along with three commercial projects. The first residential project in Penang was Sunway Tunas in Bayan Baru which was completed in 2003. Sunway Property’s strength in building integrated communities is well translated; its homes and commercial properties are built in strategic locations where infrastructure and amenities support the sustainability of the communities. Over the years, this development philosophy, which converts in no dubious terms into capital appreciation for homebuyers and investors, has built a solid reputation for Sunway Property amongst Penangites who also appreciate the developer’s flair for combining quality sustainable living with the conveniences of urban lifestyles.

Sunway Wellesley and Sunway Cassia

SUNWAY CASSIA – CONTEMPORARY HOMES IN A NATURE-INSPIRED NEIGHBOURHOOD Epitomizing Sunway Property’s unique development philosophy, Sunway Cassia, the developer’s latest residential development, is an outstanding example of Sunway’s aptitude for combining sustainable living with urban conveniences.

Each spacious terrace home is exclusively designed and integrates luxurious features such as two master suites with walk-in wardrobes, solar water heaters connected to showers in all the bathrooms and to the kitchen, individual home alarms as well as large glass window panels and sliding doors for ample natural lighting and cross ventilation.

Last year, Penangites enthusiastically voted for Sunway’s innovative philosophy and product quality, a fact corroborated by the strong take-up rate received for the second phase of Sunway Cassia’s terrace homes, comprised of 59 units of three-storey terrace homes, which were eagerly snapped up in April 2013. The second batch which was later opened in June 2013 received the same tremendous support.

Surrounding the development is an expansive selection of amenities and conveniences such as shopping malls, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, hotels, commercial business centres and retail outlets. Queensbay Mall, Bukit Jambul Complex, Sunshine Square and Giant Hypermarket provide ample retail options, while the Penang International Sports Arena (PISA) and the Bukit Jambul Golf and Country Club provide great recreational options just minutes away.

Located at Batu Maung, Sunway Cassia is an exclusive residential enclave with three acres of green and landscaped gardens with six thematic designs within the entire development. Excellent accessibility is afforded to the residents of the development via Jalan Permatang Damar Laut and the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway. Additionally, the development is just 4 km from the Second Penang Bridge, 5 km from the Penang International Airport and 12km from Penang Bridge.

SUNWAY WELLESLEY – AN URBAN SANCTUARY NESTLED IN LUSH BEAUTY In tandem with the launch of Sunway Cassia, Sunway will be launching the new phase of its freehold mixed development Sunway Wellesley in booming Bukit Mertajam as an excellent alternative to homebuyers who prefer the exclusiveness of living within a low-density environment.

Sunway Wellesley’s upcoming launch is timely as it rides upon Bukit Mertajam’s gaining popularity as one of the fastest growing lifestyle hubs with excellent facilities such as a hypermarket and shopping centres. Despite being strategically located between the two Penang bridges with accessibility to the highways, Bukit Mertajam boasts property prices which are comparatively more affordable as land is becoming scarce on the island yet does not compromise the conveniences available in a city. The entire Sunway Wellesley, which covers 82 acres of land, is strategically located 0.5 km away from the Bukit Mertajam Town Centre, 6 km from the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway, 7km from the North-South Highway and 9km from the Penang Bridge. Affirming the certain success of the development, the first phase of the project which consists of 31 units of three-storey shop offices received an encouraging response, having recorded 80% of sales at its preview. Currently, the first phase has been sold out with the robust sales being attributed to the development’s strategic location, abundant facilities and the positive sentiment from investors due to its excellent capital appreciation. The second phase of the project, which comprises 154 units of three-storey

townhouses, 60 units of three-storey semidetached homes, and 11 units of three-storey shop offices, is expected to be launched in March 2014 with the completion of the show village. The entire residential development is a gated and guarded community and boasts a grand entrance which leads to lush landscapes with thematic gardens and central linear parks that Sunway is known for. Back gardens with pathways which pleasurably intertwine lush greenery with recreational spaces further increase the appeal of the entire development, while a private clubhouse with a swimming pool adds a statement of luxury to it. Sunway Wellesley’s three-storey semidetached homes are exquisitely designed with ample space for multi-generational living. The three-storey townhouses are ideal for smaller families who prize ecoluxurious living in a secure environment. FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS Sunway Property has recently expanded its property portfolio in Penang by acquiring four parcels of land in the North East district, strategically located within the vibrant centre of Penang Island and surrounded by tourism spots as well as mature residential townships. The 24 acres represent Sunway Property’s largest land acquisition yet and are a testament to its steadfast commitment to build alongside Penang’s growing economic success. The proposed development for the land will comprise commercial and residential components. Sunway Cassia’s show homes are ready for viewing everyday; please contact our sales personnel for an exclusive site tour. Sunway Wellesley Phase 2’s show village will soon be completed and is expected to be opened to the public in March 2014.

in-house restaurant, a resort-bythe-valley as well as a pedestrian mall.

Botanica.CT will see two new phases being launched this year – Phase 4, which will represent the township’s luxury living options with 3-storey tropical hillside villas and will be launched in the first half of 2014, Phase 5C, which will comprise 2-storey semi-detached homes and detached homes or bungalows and will be launched sometime mid-2014 and Phase 5B, 71 units of apartments under the affordable housing scheme



by year end. Interested parties with a preference for sustainable building will be pleased to know that future phases may have green building features implemented in them.

KLPAC, The Actors Studio and Penang Performing Arts Centre (PenangPAC) – are all managed by theatre stalwart Datuk Faridah Merican and her husband, Joe Hasham. Long considered the First Couple of Malaysian theatre, it only seemed fitting that the “theatre by the sea” to find a home thanks to them. Founded by The Actors Studio and Eastern & Oriental Berhad,

PenangPAC, a non-profit organisation, is the northern region’s first arts centre and only the second one in Malaysia after KLPAC. Its opening on 11.11.11 was officiated by Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. The space, run by The Actors Studio, is located on the 4th floor of Straits Quay marina. It occupies a space of 22,000 sq ft and is equipped with a 303-seater proscenium theatre, 140-seater black box theatre, 3 studios, 2 gallery spaces and other amenities such as production offices and box office. The space is wheelchair accessible and is open for visitors daily. AN ARTS HUB As the state’s sole venue provider for theatre performances, PenangPAC ’s resume of

performances has gone beyond expectations. Already home to many local, colloquial Hokkiendialect shows, the venue has hosted performances from other parts of Malaysia and the world. “We aim to give the opportunities needed by local practitioners to do their work,” said Datuk Faridah Merican. “We might not have big names headlining productions, but Malaysia has a lot to offer in the world of performing arts, and we want to provide a platform for it.” The company often works under a profit sharing basis, which has as many perks as it does perils. “While profit sharing opens doors for more theatre makers, it does make it difficult to make a living if you’re a full-time

theatre practitioner,” added Datuk Faridah. REACHING FURTHER & FURTHER Besides conducting performing arts classes for children and adults, The Actors Studio Academy @ penangpac is also running some out-reach programs to serve the community. It won’t be long before PenangPAC follows the lead of KLPAC’s programme alumni. Some of the notable graduates of klpac’s programmes include Farah Rani, who is now an actor based in New York and was the recipient of the 2013 BOH Cameronian Arts Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Nadirah, as well as Iedil Putra who is proving to be Malaysia’s next leading film actor. Other programmes that extend the outreach include the Theatre for Seniors that is run by veteran

actor Mano Maniam of Kopitiam fame. The programme ropes together people in their golden years and equip them with an avenue to express themselves as they wish. As with arts centres around the world, it will depend on additional funding from the private and public sector in order for it to be sustainable in the long-term. WHAT’S IN STORE For those heading to Penang, PenangPAC is definitely a stop

that should be made. Among the shows that will be playing at the theatre in the next few months include Let’s Go European, Simply the Original II, Dama Orchestra and Hugless Douglas, an international children’s theatre production.

PENANG’S OPTION OVERHAUL Media reports have chronicled Penangites’ outcry towards the rising price of properties. Their voices have made a difference. The slashing of subsidies and overall increase of living costs have sent many Penangites into an expense-frenzy. From the skyrocketing prices of real estate to the availability, or lack thereof, of affordable housing, Penang’s growth as a sustainable place to live in is at stake. Notably absent from the PR1MA social housing program, Penang seems to be in dire need of a mass housing estate to cater to the needs of its residents. Chairman of PDC Properties, Yang Berhormat Wong Hon Wai, shared with the company’s collaboration with Penang’s state government in providing affordable options for Penang’s many, yearning home buyers. CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS PROJECT? The Penang State Government, through Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and its PDC Properties subsidiary have embarked on a massive constructive programme to supply 20,000 affordable houses for Penangites.

WHERE WILL THESE AFFORDABLE HOMES BE LOCATED? Penang Island • Jalan SP Chelliah: 1900 units • Teluk Kumbar: 694 units • Jelutong: 556 units • Pintasan Cecil: 298 units

Chairman of PDC Properties, Yang Berhormat Wong Hon Wai

facilities. This makes it a great choice for those looking for affordable housing.

Seberang Perai • Batu Kawan 11,800 units • Mak Mandin: 250 units • Ampang Jajar: 1200 units • Bukit Mertajam: 968 units • Juru: 1600 units • Kampung Jawa: 707 units

WHEN WILL THESE PROJECTS BE COMPLETED? It is estimated that all the projects mentioned will be completed within the next 3 to 10 years.

IS THERE A REASON WHY MOST OF THE HOUSES ARE LOCATED IN BATU KAWAN? For Batu Kawan, we have planned a brand new township project. It’s an ideal location for housing as the Second Penang Bridge is due to be opened in early 2014, and connects Batu Kawan on the mainland and Batu Maung on the island. This township will include colleges, factories, residential estates, shopping malls and other

The new housing scheme will help first-time home buyers with affordable options, and will also prevent the adverse impact of a property bubble burst. WHAT IS THE BUDGET ALLOCATED FOR THESE 20,000 HOMES? The Penang State Government has allocated RM500 million for the fund to build affordable homes. This is a record-high amount for the State, and is the biggest amount when compared to other states in the nation.

‘SOMETHING’ BECKONS Art has long been the expression of the nascent nature of the beginning and the promise of closure in the end. Wei-Ling Contemporary is very pleased to announce The Beginning of Something, a solo exhibition by international contemporary artist H.H. Lim, set to be held at the gallery this February. The eastern philosophical tradition tells us that life is nothing but a perpetual cycle of life and death. What in a specific moment begins, has already had an end in the past and sooner or

78 |

later will end again, in an infinite cycle of impermanent existences. H.H. Lim’s Beginning is set anywhere in this circle: it does not matter, after all, whether it is the beginning of an end or the end of a beginning, because every moment is essential as much as the other ones to the continuity of life. In this undefined instant, man puts the universal cyclic nature back inside the boundaries of one’s own specific

existence, keeping constant the balance between necessity and fulfilment, between temptation and completion. In dealing with this topic, Lim uses his customary language, taking his inspiration from the images that fill contemporary daily life; the expensive objects scattered randomly across the Wei Ling Gallery’s floor are the leading elements of a perpetual tension process towards

to them and therefore to question their real significance. On the surface of the long canvas called Hard Rain, the flying helicopters are the mirror of our condition: one of external spectators and victims, of subject-object in the storm that shakes the world. Beaten by an unmerciful rain, we move forward, lost towards the hope of salvation, and as the young actor playing the lead character of the short-film Sunshine through the Rain by Akira Kurosawa, to whom Lim pays tribute with this work, we pursue a place which goes beyond space and time, where finally the circle will be broken and we will be given the comfort of an answer. This place is metaphorically represented by the roots of the rainbow, nothing but a sheer mirage, the glimpse of which the artist however impishly leaves us on the canvas. Born in Kedah, Malaysia, Lim has practiced art in Rome since the year 1976 and has remained since, finding himself continuously inspired by the city’s energy. A Neoconceptual artist with a disposition for colossal works, Lim is known to incorporate elements of everyday life into his works, which at times are recycled, repackaged and framed, taking on a different meaning and new life. In the past, Lim’s conceptual works have consisted of paintings, installations, performance art as well as recorded video and sound. possession, they are the fragile targets of the ephemeral passions of today’s man. To the artist, this recurrent search of stimulation and pleasure resolves in what he himself calls a “grown-up game”. The pleasure that man feels in using and then disposing of unnecessary goods, as well as the outcome of a consumerist society, can also be interpreted as the search for novelty and knowledge, similar to the one that pushes a baby to ignore a toy that he used to love as soon as he gets a new one into his hands. The artworks themselves become provocatively subjected to this logic of possession and abandonment and the drawings, dispersed so carelessly, as if they were the umpteenth leftovers of an alienated community, join the magnificent ornaments in a state of chaos, inducing the viewer, by contrast, to pay more attention

H.H Lim believes that artists are missionaries, and we are the testimony of what is happening in our time, that the showing of ideas is like a calling, a mission, and that he is in need of a public, an audience, to enliven the artwork, as visitors animate the artwork or dead spaces.To date, the artist has shown widely in Asia, Europe and the US and very recently having participated in the 55th Venice Biennale under the Cuban Pavilion as well as in the 6th Prague Biennale, both in the year 2013. The Beginning of Something features at Wei-Ling Contemporary from 17th February –31st March 2014. Wei-Ling Contemporary is open Daily from 10am-9pm. Admission is free.

REJUVENATION OF PENANG IN 2014 With many developments set to hit the ground running, how will Penang fare in 2014’s uncertain property market? - BY CHAN AI CHENG Penang is expected to experience accelerated development in 2014 due to several factors. Firstly, the RM4.5 billion Second Penang Bridge which links Batu Maung with Batu Kawan will serve as the Penang Island’s alternate access way. This will enhance property developments in Batu Kawan and Batu Maung, as well as surrounding areas. Batu Maung is blessed with natural advantages such as its close proximity to the Penang International Airport and the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone. With the Penang Second Bridge having been completed, travellers on the bridge will be greeted with a new landmark, which

80 |

is the multiple award-winning Southbay development by Mah Sing. It is poised to emerge as one of the most vibrant lifestyle hubs on the island, featuring a comprehensive mix of residential and commercial components within an address boasting superior accessibility, convenient amenities, a wealth of Asian heritage and a picturesque backdrop. According to an AmResearch report, Penang’s attractiveness would be boosted by IKEA’s entry into mainland Penang in Batu Kawan, Seberang Perai Selatan. “Being the second IKEA outlet in Malaysia, the ground work is expected to commence

by end of the year or early 2015 and to be developed within five years. This is undertaken by Aspen to Ikano, a joint venture between Aspen Vision Land Sdn Bhd and Ikano,” explained AmResearch. A SPLASH IS HAPPENING AT GEORGETOWN On the eastern part of the island, Georgetown has been a gateway for thousands of 18th/19th century Chinese immigrants who arrived in search of fortune and a better life. Once a springboard for colonial ambitions or a bustling venue for spice trading and opium exchange, it is the site of the 152 acres RM6.5 billion The Light Waterfront development. This development will be developed in three phases by IJM Land Bhd. It will become a global village that integrates waterfront living with residential, commercial, hospitality and entertainment components into one dynamic hub. Besides The Light Waterfront, close to the (first) Penang Bridge is also another major waterfront development called the Penang World City. Located at Bayan Mutiara, this 102.5 acres joint-venture project is being developed by Tropicana Corporation Berhad (formerly known as Dijaya Corporation Berhad) and Ivory Properties Group Berhad. This development is expected to comprise luxury condominiums, commercial and retail spaces, business suites, serviced residences, an iconic office block, a waterfront entertainment city, a medical city and others. Close to this area is Paya Terubong, where Sunway Berhad has plans to develop a high-rise residential property project as well as a shopping mall on 9.82ha. of land.

CHALLENGING PENANG’S PROPERTY MARKET While Penang is expected to continue to prosper in 2014, the property market in Penang is expected to face headwinds in the future. According to the Valuation and Property Services Department’s Property Market Report 2013, compared to 1H 2012, Penang experienced a drop of 27.2% in transaction volume. In the residential subsector, volume of transactions contracted by 28.1%. The decline in transactions is likely to be attributed to the various property controls by both the federal and state governments. New controls from the federal government include the limiting of tenure of financing, the rise of the real property gains tax (RPGT) and minimum floor price of properties that may be acquired by foreigners, requirements for sales prices to be transparent, banning of developers’ interest bearing schemes (DIBS) and interest capitalisation schemes (ICS), and disbursement of loans based on net selling price.At a state level, the minimum floor price for foreigners to acquire properties was set at RM1 million in Penang, and RM2 million for non-landed properties situated on the island. With effect from 1st Feb 2014, a 3% levy is imposed on transacted price of properties purchased by non-residents. Furthermore, a 2% levy will be imposed on the seller for all properties sold within three years from the date of the sales & purchase agreement (SPA) from 1st Feb 2014. However, the 2% levy does not apply to affordable housing. CONCLUSION The opportunities and challenges in Penang is expected to create a complex situation in its property market.

DAMANSARA HEIGHTS As one of Klang Valley’s more exclusive neighbourhoods, Damansara Heights is still home to several exciting new developments despite its limited remaining land.

Damansara Heights, also known as Bukit Damansara, is a self-sustained township located merely kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur City Centre. It is predominantly lowrise residential and commercial in character, having been initially developed by SPPK Sdn Bhd for government servants decades ago. Currently, it has an approximate total of 25 purpose-built commercial buildings housing Fortune 500 firms such as Caltex, Shell and Hewlett-Packard. Residential properties within the township include terraced houses, semi-detached houses, low-rise apartments and bungalows which range widely from ordinary old bungalows to luxurious multimillion Ringgit self-built ones. Damansara Heights is accessible via several major roads and highways such as the Sprint Highway, Jalan Semantan and Jalan Maarof, with Jalan Beringin forming an inner circle within the town. At the moment, the only forms of public transportation available within the township are buses and taxis; no rail line or other forms of integrated public transportation exist at present.

82 |

However, in the near future the proposed Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), which will be operational in 2017, will have stations built in Semantan and Pusat Bandar Damansara connecting the township to other rail systems such as the Light Rail Transit (LRT), Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) and the Monorail. The KL Sentral station will be just a station away from the Semantan station, enabling passengers to transit or change rail lines easily. Generally the transacted prices in Damansara Heights have increased since 2010 for both landed and stratified properties. Transacted prices for empty lands remained stable but not in the case of detached houses, especially the self-built ones, where the price difference is huge due to differences in regards to building materials and designs. As for stratified properties, Desa Bistari and Desa Damansara have shown steady increasing price trends; on the other hand, Prima Damansara and Clear Water Residence have shown less stable and to some extent decreasing price trends.

The recorded transaction prices of selected schemes within Damansara Heights as of November 2013 are as below:LANDED TYPE

In terms of the amount of transactions, stratified properties have indicated a more stable amount compared to landed properties where the amount of transactions in 2013 have dropped by approximately 50% compared to previous years. Damansara City, noted to be one of the biggest projects in Damansara Heights, is an integrated development by GuocoLand comprising ‘work, live and play’ elements. Like many other schemes, Damansara Heights’ new projects are of the luxurious variety as it is known to be one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Klang Valley. The new products’ prices tend to reflect this; for example, the bungalows in Damansara 16 were reported to cost between RM10 million and RM15 million each. Other recently completed projects include the bungalows in Zephyr Point (current asking price of above RM10 million), Clear Water Residence (current asking price

ranging from RM800 psf up to and above RM1,000 psf) and Twins Damansara Heights (current asking price ranging from RM800 psf up to and above RM900 psf). From the beginning, the township was developed with the luxury and exclusivity meant for the higher-income group in

IS YOUR HEAD OFFICE BUILT TO LAST? What you need to know when heading your headquarters.

The ability of a business to own its own building or build a headquarters is universally seen as indication of the business or organisation’s achievement, success and of course, as a symbol of prestige. Being the CEO or MD at the helm of a company or organisation when it achieves the financial heft to own its own building or build its own building (or move into a bigger building) is more than just a great achievement. With the exception of countries like Hong Kong, Taiwan and maybe China, there is often little thought as to whether or not such a building has been designed to also enable the business to go the distance. Don’t believe me? Well, let’s take the example of a little company called Enron. Originally, Enron was headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. It achieved good growth there, and then relocated to Houston, Texas. Now, the Feng Shui of Houston isn’t unfavourable, but we look at the photographs of the company’s headquarters

90 |

in Houston, we can see that the design of the building created an organisation of unscrupulous individuals. The headquarters of Enron has a curving pedestrian bridge at the area of the building. This means that the back of the building is cut by an inverted Blade Sha – it is like a cudgel buried in the back of the building. The building itself is round and cylindrical in shape, which makes it a Metal Shape Building. Blade Sha is a form of Metal Sha so here we have a formation known as Sword Fighting Sha, or two pieces of metal crossing each other. Sword Fighting Sha produces legal disputes that are the result of armed robbery, theft or unlawful activities, which is exactly the sort of thing that Enron was embroiled in at the time the business unraveled. BUILDING A BUSINESS TO LAST The first step in locating the headquarters of a company is to study the organisation’s primary business or core activity. For

example, financial businesses need to be supported by powerful water formations in order to achieve success. This is one of the reasons why New York is the financial center of the US and the world, and why a major stock exchange is located there. New York is known as a Flatland Dragon area, with small and very low hills. The key to the Feng Shui of New York lies in the unique water formations arising from the confluence and convergence of rivers such as the Hudson River. But when it comes to the actual building structure, there is one more question that must be considered. What goal or objective should the Feng Shui of the building be orientated towards? The common mistake is profit. It should be to ensure stability and long-term growth. Profitability of course is essential, but a business doesn’t just generate profit from its HQ. It generates profit from regional offices, sales offices, overseas operations and retail stores. But the headquarters is where the buck stops, and it needs to be able to stand the test of time. This is done through ensuring that the External Mountains and Hill Formations are lush, sentimental and are substantial sized mountains. Mountains, in the study of Feng Shui, are what govern people, and a business is only ever as good as its people. Mountains also relate to long-term and more lasting Qi. Perhaps the moral of the story is this: build your building so your business will be truly built to last, and the best way to do this is to stay out of the pages of Architecture Digest.

MAKING INFLATION WORK FOR YOU Inflation is a phenomenon as lethal as it is inevitable. Can you flip it to work in your favour? The topic of inflation is important as it seems like it’s about to start. Increases in fuel price and electricity are only some of the things that will push us towards significant, everyday inflation. Economists warn Malaysians to brace themselves for higher costs of living and aggressive price hikes in 2014as a result of the government’s subsidy cuts to address the national fiscal deficit. Soon, Malaysians will face the increase of daily expenses such as food and transportation. Rising prices pose a big burden, especially for those in the middle and low income brackets. Hedging inflation has become the biggest challenge for most Malaysians. Many of us don’t know how to use inflation to get rich. All know is that we end up

92 |

poorer as a result of it. For instance, employees are hurt by inflation because they can only sell their time, and time generally does not edge against inflation well. Additionally, people who have credit card debt are hurt by inflation because the banks generally raise interest rates to battle inflation. Much of bad debt is based on adjustable interest rates that go up in times of inflation, ultimately making debt payments more expensive. Also, people who believe keeping money in a bank is wise and prudent are prone to getting hurt as well. Banks are smart, and play by new rule of money. Banks pay interest on money that does not keep up with inflation. Money loses purchasing power as the bank uses your money to make money.

Getting rich from inflation is a simple process – leveraging and hedging. (Refer to previous issue for more info). In an inflationary economy and the housing loan repayment is fixed or monitored; it becomes less of a cost as the Ringgit loses purchasing power. Real estate has historically held its value against inflation quite well and, in most locations, will always be a thing of intrinsic value as compared to, for example, gold. And you get to live in it while it wards off the demons of inflation. Mortgage itself is a powerful fighter against inflation. Just as being owed money is a bad thing under inflation, owing it to others is a great idea. Over time, the value of your debt will naturally shrink in real terms. Put another way, the Ringgit value of the house will go up with inflation, but the size of the mortgage will not. That is bad for the bank, but awfully good for you. The latest update from the governor of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz is that BNM plans to introduce a new reference rate framework for banks to prices their consumer loans to better reflect market conditions. According to a circular released by BNM, the proposed changes

Source from Economic Malaysia Blogspot

would stop lenders from offering debt at discounts to the BLR. It would also boost transparency and ensure charges better take into account institutions’ lending costs, funding structures and statutory reserve requirements. December 2013 – BNM calls for banks to price their loans more in line with the risks they take. The document sets out some requirements for banks to comply with by March 17. It states that the pricing of retails loans should be based on a risk-informed approach. BNM’s rhetoric in the document seems to suggest that they think banks are pricing household loans, especially mortgages, too low, in the sense that they are undervaluing the risks. They want to see more sensible pricing while letting the banks maintain ultimate discretion over pricing. Again, this shows that banks are earning marginal profit and real estate profits from rental, and that higher resell values could hedge against the inflation. (Current inflation rate record as of December 2013 is 3.2%) What could the impact be for mortgage? Is it a higher risk for real estate investors who leverage for their own investment? The new interest rate framework represents a change in the system of implementing monetary policy, and promotes more efficient pricing by banking institutions. It does not represent a change in monetary policy. Therefore, the introduction of the new framework is not expected to lead to any change in the general level of domestic interest rates. From my personal viewpoint, the mortgage deal with the bank is always associated with principle repayment and payable interest amounts over the agreed loan tenure. Regardless of mortgage structure, keeping individual account of a clear financial record will always give the investor a clear view for each investment return. Precise decision on every sale and purchase of property will give the best returns and minimal losses. As a smart investor, you should treat every investment as running a business, knowing that every single transaction counts for your profit and loss.

USA Great Homes

INVESTING IN AMERICA’S ‘GREAT HOMES’ While never the first choice for Asian investors, could America be where real estate investments grow best?

Aldrian Ho, Operation Manager of USA Great Homes

When it comes to investing in foreign real estate, newspapers and brochures splash the city centres of places like Melbourne and London as the go-to spots. The US, the ‘most powerful country in the world’, has been overlooked as a potential investment for real estate enthusiasts. Aldrian Ho, Operation Manager of USA Great Homes delves into the reasons why America should be an option to be looked into by property investors.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN AMERICA INSTEAD OF MORE POPULAR SPOTS SUCH AS AUSTRALIA AND LONDON? Properties in the US as far as median home prices are concerned, have dropped by between 30% to 40% in the last seven years due to the global financial crisis. Experts and moguls like Donald Trump, Warren Buffet and Robert Kiyosaki have, time and time again, driven home the fact that the time to invest in a singlefamily residency in the USA is now. One of the biggest benefits of investing in the US as opposed to other countries is the possibility of finding a distressed home, or fixer-upper, that is owned by a

bank or the government. These homes can be purchased at a far lower price than the going market rate. The fact that home prices have taken a downward turn only means that an upswing is inevitable. COULD YOU PLEASE PROVIDE A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO INVEST IN AMERICAN REAL ESTATE, AND WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR DOING SO? • Form an Entity: As a foreigner who has never set foot in the US, the best bet is to legally form an entity in order to be able to own a property in the US. • Find a Team: This is probably the most important aspect to owning an investment property overseas. Team members usually consist of a knowledgeable real

estate agent, property inspector, title/closing agent, property manager, contractor, handyman, insurance broker, accountant, attorney, etc. • Finding the Location and Property: Research the areas well and attempt to understand the local market. Talking to real estate service professionals in the area is usually a great way to gain an educated and accurate insight into the market. • Analyse the Property: You must practise due diligence by making an effort to understand the fair market value, repair costs and most importantly the potential appreciation in the area. This step is crucial as you need to be conservative to ensure your deal is profitable and that you are indeed paying below the market value. It is also vital to include repair and transaction costs when making comparisons. • Negotiating the Deal: Prepare the purchase offer agreement with contingencies that can help you exit the deal if unexpected

After - Pool filled-in, new landscaped lawn and clean yard

occurrences such as questionable titles and insurability issues were to take place. • Closing the Deal: Get all the paperwork and funds ready. It is essential that payments are fully made in cash. • Prepare the Property: Depending on the condition of the property, get it remodelled/ repaired/touched up and readyto-move-in in the shortest time possible and at the minimum cost. • Managing the Property: Lease out the property and start enjoying the month-to-month rental. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE RISKS AN INVESTOR MAY FACE IN PURCHASING A FIXER-UPPER? • Bad Location: Do not get too caught up with the low purchase price. • Buy with Emotion: When you are not buying a home to live in, look beyond fancy remodelling and features that might seal the deal. • Self-Inspection: Pay an experienced and licensed inspector to thoroughly inspect

the house for hidden defects. It is a small cost to cover potentially larger costs that could arise from problems that may be overlooked during a self-inspection. • Estimate Repairs: Be generous with your repair cost estimations. Take unanticipated events and safety factors into account when calculating this value. • Incompetent Contractors: Delays in remodelling or repairing projects will kill a deal, ultimately stopping your first rental payment. Interview multiple contractors and get multiple bids for the job. Never settle for the lowest bid.

Brisk Bathroom Cleaning Tips

BRISK BATHROOM CLEANING TIPS Working a 9-to-5 sometimes does not give you time for essential household chores. Here are 7 handy tips on keeping your bathroom spotless. REMOVE ALL YOUR ITEMS When cleaning, it is important to not leave items as they are in their place. In tropical nations like Malaysia, dust collects at an expedited rate. Remove all items from shower racks, sink tops and bathtubs, as well as rugs and used towels. Make sure to properly dust every single crevice of the bathroom for a magical finish. INVEST IN GOOD SOLUTION Don’t cut cost when buying a cleaning solution. Most stores carry multipurpose bathroom cleaning liquids which work for showers, doors, bathtubs and other surfaces in the bathroom. These sprays usually only require a small amount per clean. This will help remove build-up from bathroom tile and shower heads. Don’t forget to give it a second wipe down with a water-soaked towel to clean off the remaining residue or leftover cleaning liquid. VANISH THAT VANITY Not many of us realise that our vanities in our bathrooms are not as clean as they look. Whether it’s remnants of toothpaste foam and hair gel, or stains from make-up kits, our vanities need to be cleaned well. A cloth dampened with water will do wonders for removing dust from cabinets and racks.

MIRROR, MIRROR No vanity is complete without a mirror. Cleaning a mirror is extremely simple, and here are two efficient and quick ways to do it. One way is to use a damp, microfiber cloth to wipe the mirror without leaving any pieces of thread on its surface. The second way is to use a window cleaner and old newspaper. Spray the cleaning liquid on to the mirror and wipe it down with the newspaper. CHANGE YOUR SOAP Not many of us realise that the longer we keep bars of soap, the harder they are to remove from soap dishes and tiles. The animal fat in soap clings to both the dish and the drain, which may eventually clog piping. It is best to switch out soap the way one does with toothbrushes – every three months or less. If that is too expensive, try using vegetable-based soaps or switch to shower gel instead. KEEP ON CLEANING If you’ve done a marathon clean, it is best to use these tips on a daily basis to avoid build-up. It is difficult to spend a solid hour cleaning just one room, so spend 3 minutes each day cleaning up just a little.

Saving The Earth And Some Cash |


SAVING THE EARTH AND SOME CASH Recycling is something that we all try to incorporate in our daily lives, so why not take one step forward and upcycle instead? Here are 4 projects that turn the old into new. MAGNETIC SCRABBLE TILES We all have those ugly magnets that we’d rather throw out than use on our fridge. Why not turn it into some kitschy and cool? Remove the magnets from their bodies, and grab a glue gun. If you have an old Scrabble set, use the glue gun to stick the magnets on the back of Scrabble tiles. These not only make your fridge look better, they also work as a way to have fun making your grocery list to paste on your fridge doors. WINE LIGHTS We all enjoy good company over good food and wine, but what happens to the bottles of wine after we’re done? A sure-fire way to upcycle well, and make it look good, is turning the wine bottles into reading lamps. Get a wine bottle and a drill, and get yourself some cheap or used Christmas lights. Drill a small hole through the wine bottle, about 1-2 inches from its base. Make sure it is one that is big enough to fit the Christmas lights’ socket plug and big enough for the lights to go through. Once it is drilled, use sand paper to smooth out the

hole. Squeeze those lights in and leave the plug hanging from the end. Plug it in, turn it on and you will have a brand new, unique reading lamp. TOILET ROLL SORTING When you’re done with a roll of toilet paper, we usually dispose of its cardboard base. Keep them and use them to sort out that messy sock drawer. Fit one pair of socks through one end, and a second pair through the other. This method keeps them neat and tidy, and saves space in your drawer or closet. AN OLD, NEW PET BED If you have an old travel suitcase lying around, don’t throw it away just yet. Drop by your closest department store and spend a few bucks on cheap cushions and stuffed materials. Layer the open suitcase with a pillow or stuffed mat, and personalise it with sticker, beads or anything you fancy. This will make for a perfect bed for your household pet.
