Someone debated with me about RTS’s benefits versus cost. Here’s my view, earlier. The debate ended with the person saying that RTS will most probably not happen. Something along the lines of ‘relationship.’ Anyway, I believe RTS will happen. It has to happen yeah. Anyway, what’s the latest update? Before everyone starts saying that the … Read moreRTS? ‘Committed to ensure it happens.’
When Sr. Norhisham of JPPH was presenting his slides, I think some participants in the REHDA Institute’s Big Data & Analytics for Sales & Marketing Conference may be disagreeing. His slides show some positivity with the market but the market situation should be otherwise, no? There are still people who thinks that transactions continue to … Read moreTurning around, perhaps. Two more quarters to know if it’s continuous.
Completed and unsold properties are a nightmare for many developers. I say many because there are developers who continue to build and complete and handover the keys even though the total units sold are just half.

In my opinion, High Speed Rail (HSR) KL – SG is NOT going to benefit JB the most. It’s great for both KL and SG but it will bring benefit to the many towns along the route. The reason is because majority of Singaporeans have no car and with a working HSR, they are now … Read moreBRT as HSR replacement for Gerbang Nusajaya?
For Johor and Singapore, the catalyst to the growth to both sides will be connectivities. the bridge can wait lah. That’s only for cars unless we intend for Malaysians and Singaporeans to walk over the bridge to either side everyday? RTS is such a catalyst, for people. Capacity of 10,000 passengers per direction per hour … Read moreRTS will be suspended, drafting supplementary agreement now.
First of all, the more links we have between JB and Singapore, the better. However, I think the focus should be two-pronged or multi-pronged where solutions in terms of connections are concerned.

Prices lower unlikely. (sharply…)
