Championing greater connectivity towards better affordable living…



REHDA (Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association) continues to champion for greater connectivity and better affordable living for all Malaysians with the launch of MAPEX 2017 at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (MVEC), Kuala Lumpur recently. With over fifty real estate developers and their flagship developments, house buyers and property investors were spoilt for choice with a plethora of properties and affordable homes offered throughout the entire three-day event – reputed to be the largest and longest running property expo in Malaysian history! With an improved public transportation network, it is only aptly or fitting that MAPEX 2017 be themed, “Greater Connectivity for Better Affordable Living.”


In an exclusive interview with the organizing chairman of MAPEX 2017, we find out more about the man behind REHDA Malaysia, as Homefinder Malaysia gets up, close and personal with Datuk Ng Seing Liong. In championing the cause of real estate developers, affordable housing and home-ownership, Datuk Ng stresses the importance of end-financing support from financial institutions for first-time homebuyers, and espouses the essence of seamless connectivity within public transportation networks towards better affordable living for the masses.


In this edition, we also feature three award-winning developments which have been showcased during the recently concluded MAPEX 2017. From Greater KL to the Southern States, premier developers nationwide are rated as among the “crème de la crème” (i.e. cream of the crop) within the local real estate industry. TH Properties launched their Warisan Puteri 2, a landmark residential project providing premium affordable housing to Seremban residents. Dubbed “A jewel of the city, an island in the sky”, Isola KLCC is another niche residential offering from OCR Land Holdings – the epitome of luxury living among the clouds amid the blue yonder! Not to be outshone, Sunsuria’s The Olive is another living masterpiece and luxury residence within the iconic and award-wining township of Sunsuria City. Sunsuria Berhad has also embarked on a RM100 million landscaping drive in a joint-venture with Savanna Landscaping – towards living in a green, sustainable smart city the Sunsuria way!

We highlighted Malaysian property icon Tan Sri Eddy Chen, the managing director of MKH Berhad, who was accorded the title of ‘National Leadership Excellence Award – Decade of Excellence’ during the recent Noble Excellence Awards 2016 held at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC). In ushering the much anticipated TIMA 2016/17 accolades, we also highlighted the visionary Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, the chief executive officer of Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) whose esteemed organization was awarded ‘Best Public Delivery Award – Decade of Excellence’ in conjunction with Noble Excellence Awards 2016.


The latest robotic phenomenon has landed in Malaysia! Introducing ROBI, the brainchild of Tomotaka Takahashi who envisioned a futuristic world filled with helper androids and robot assistants. Now, Malaysians are able to experience for themselves the fun and functionality of building and owning their very own Robi! In a groundbreaking article by motivational guru, master coach and maverick thinker James Oh, “You Will Surely Accomplish What You Laser-Focus On…”, he talks about the essence of pin-point focus and deep-thought concentration, and how they affect your personal and professional life in your quest towards life-long success.
