U Mobile and WeChat Introduces Unlimited Data For Chinese Tourists

U Mobile and WeChat Introduces Unlimited Data For Chinese Tourists

U Mobile today announced a partnership with WeChat to launch the U Mobile WeChat Go SIM. This new prepaid SIM will offer Chinese tourists unlimited data to enjoy social messaging on the WeChat app and free Lingcod TV subscription whilst having unlimited data to stream over 100,000 hours of high-definition movies, documentaries, and educational content out of China.

The new U Mobile WeChat Go SIM will be the only WeChat Go cobranded prepaid SIM in the country and it is packed with other value-added services including 1GB of free roaming data for Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia and 60 minutes’ worth of IDD calls to China or calls made in Malaysia.

The launch of U Mobile WeChat Go SIM is very timely as the Malaysian Tourism and Culture Ministry is targeting to attract eight million Chinese tourists by 2020. With more and more tourists from China visiting Malaysia, the U Mobile prepaid WeChat Go SIM is well positioned to meet all their connectivity demands.

“With the new U Mobile WeChat Go SIM, the whole WeChat ecosystem goes beyond just social messaging. Together with WeChat, we will work on packing even more benefits like mobile commerce into the WeChat Go SIM not just for Chinese tourists but for anyone who is a user of WeChat,” said Jasmine Lee, Chief Marketing Officer, U Mobile.

U Mobile WeChat Go SIM will be available from 6 December 2017, and Chinese tourists may opt to purchase the prepaid SIM pack from Sunway Media retailers in China prior to travelling. The SIM card will also be available at 138 U Mobile outlets in Malaysia as well as the various international airports in the country such as KLIA and KLIA 2.

Get weather updates through RakanMET

Get weather updates through RakanMET

Whichever part of Malaysia you are in, the RakanMET app allows you to share information and updates on the weather.

RakanMET aims to provide fast and accurate information to the public to ensure that they are better prepared to face extreme weather conditions.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau said the app was developed by his ministry (Mosti) through the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

“Users can report weather-related incidents in their areas by uploading information onto the app.

“This is done to prevent irresponsible parties from uploading fake information on the app,” he said.

RakanMET is the second app to be developed by Mosti after myCuaca, which was launched in 2015 to provide the public with the latest weather information.

RakanMET was officially launched at the Sabah Weather and Earthquake Operations Centre on Friday, in conjunction with World Meteorological Day.

MetMalaysia director-general Alui Bahari was also present at the event to sign a memorandum of understanding with Universiti Putra Malaysia to mark their collaboration in the field of meteorological science.

Resorts World Genting honoured in Forbes Travel Guide

Resorts World Genting honoured in Forbes Travel Guide

It is the first time Kuala Lumpur debuted in the 2018 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating with Resorts World Genting bagging two accolades in the international ratings.

The success was commendable as only three Malaysian hotels were cited in the annual survey.

The flagship Genting Grand Hotel was honoured with a coveted four-star rating while Maxims Hotel at Resorts World Genting gained a Recommended citation.

Genting Grand Hotel’s four-star achievement was the only Malaysian hotel to “hit the jackpot for a restful retreat”. It required an average score of 80% to 89% from Forbes Travel Guide inspectors.

The Forbes Travel Guide described the hotel as a “luxury retreat outside of Kuala Lumpur” and praising it for its “plush accommodations, gorgeous views and friendly staff”.

Maxims Hotel’s Recommendation listing required an average score of 70% to 79%.

It added that if Resorts World Genting was considered an out-of-this-world vacationing experience, then Maxims Genting might be its “brightest star”.

In a statement, Resorts World Genting deputy chief operating officer of resort operations Paul Baker said it was an honour to get the two accolades.

“To see our hard work recognised by the Forbes Travel Guide is gratifying, especially to all our staff who go out-of-their-way to provide the best service to our guests,” he said.

The Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating is released annually in the first quarter of every year.

Reviewing both the service and the quality of the property, Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating follows standards that focus on graciousness, thoughtfulness and a sense of personalised service to craft a list of five-star, four-star and recommended sites.

Genting Grand Hotel is the only hotel out of the 513 hotels in Malaysia that is awarded four-star status by Forbes while Maxims at Resorts World Genting is one of two hotels accredited in Malaysia.

So far, there is no five-star awarded to any hotel in the country.

‘ECRL project will take environs into consideration’

‘ECRL project will take environs into consideration’

There will be adequate environmental protection in the construction of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) rail line, said Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRL).

Its chief executive officer Datuk Seri Darwis Abdul Razak said the ECRL project team has been working closely with the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry (NRE) for over a year to improve the project alignment and design to minimise its impact on the environment and wildlife.

“It is important for the development of ECRL to be implemented with the environment in mind.

“We firmly believe that development and the environment must go hand-in-hand.

“A Wildlife Management Plan has also been formulated through MRL’s collaboration with the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan),” he said in a statement yesterday.

Darwis said a special steering committee, chaired by the NRE’s deputy secretary-general, has also been set up to ensure that all matters related to natural resources and environment regarding the project will be addressed.

The ECRL project, said Darwis, is said to be among the “most challenging engineering and construction” projects in Malaysia as the 688km rail line is not on a flat terrain but cuts across the hilly terrain of the Titiwangsa Range and dense forest.

“As the ECRL traverses through various forests and wildlife habitats, it is crucial to explore the means to ensure the development incurs minimal damage.

“We are pleased to say that the scrutiny in protecting the environment has resulted in a more environmentally-friendly design and measures to ensure the welfare of the wildlife,” said Darwis.

The MRL, together with main contractor China Communications Construction Company Ltd (CCCC), will be implementing various environmentally-friendly initiatives, he added.

The ECRL project team and the NRE have also made design improvements to reduce the loss of forests.

The original design, said Darwis, could have involved the loss of over 2,000ha of forest reserves but modifications to the alignment and provisions of 45 tunnels with a total length of about 49km have managed to reduce the loss of forests by 90%.

Wildlife underpasses will also be built at 29 strategic locations so that wildlife can move freely despite the railway line passing through.
