Giving back the land (free). RTS should start (asap).

I just checked. The first time I wrote about Rail Transit System (RTS) JB – SG was in this article: Iskandar and Rail Transit System way back in 2013. 🙂 My views then and my views today remained the same. RTS is a catalyst and it will be much more beneficial to JB compared to … Read moreGiving back the land (free). RTS should start (asap).

BRT as HSR replacement for Gerbang Nusajaya?

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?

RTS will be suspended, drafting supplementary agreement now.

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.

Not just cars, ok? Focus on RTS too.

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. We need to make sure more cars could come into JB everyday and to lessen the jams during holidays but let us understand … Read moreNot just cars, ok? Focus on RTS too.

Unsold higher likely. Prices lower unlikely. (sharply…)

I have been sharing that prices for properties could not drop sharply unless the sellers (owners) themselves become desperate and start selling lower, sharply.

UEM Sunrise Bhd’s RM1.2 billion sales target for 2019

Sales targets are important for the sales people. Setting it too low meant the company is going to fall behind the industry while setting it way too high meant the sales people already gave up even at the beginning. (Yes, I have over 20 years of sales experience but none in a property developer) It’s … Read moreUEM Sunrise Bhd’s RM1.2 billion sales target for 2019

12k visitors per day buying premium goods is good news.

Should I consider myself a shopaholic? I do own around 30 pairs of shoes. Most of my friends say I am a shopaholic. Actually I don’t think so. Maybe I am just a cheapo shopaholic. I have never bought any non-leather shoe pretending to be leather shoe before but I have never bought any premium … Read more12k visitors per day buying premium goods is good news.

RTS JB – SG? Further Delays are likely…

For BOTH sides to prosper; Johor and Singapore, the rail transit system (RTS) is certainly a catalyst. My two trips to Singapore last year has shown that with better and faster connectivity, many things will fall into place much faster.
