Over the past 23 years, it has been our privilege and pleasure to share the Malaysian journey and yet another year of building a better tomorrow for our future generations.

We are working with a skeleton staff today, recharging our batteries before returning to the fray.
We shall be back in full force in the new year to continue to give you more news and views that matter.
