2K14 – VMY, World Cup, etc….

Assalamualaikum  (to all my fellow Muslims). ‘Sup peeps! 2013 has gone. Hello and welcome aboard 2014! While most enjoy holiday today (a public holiday by the way), some states in Malaysia have their work day as usual, including Johor. Speaking of Johor, the southernmost state of the Malaysian peninsula reverts to Friday and Saturday weekends from this year. So, will there be Friday Star, New Friday Times, Berita Harian Jumaat, Metro Jumaat, and Kosmo Jumaat for Johor as well as other states like Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu which already observe this different weekend to complement this weekend change? Anyways, here are what we can and shall look forward to this year:

VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2014 (VMY2K14)

We shall (Malaysia will) be THE (“duh”) host to the world for the fourth time. The last time we held it was in 2007, when Malaysia celebrated its (NOT her) semi-centennial independence. The first one was in 1990, and later 1994. This time, it carries the theme “Truly Asia“, the same tagline to promote Malaysia as a tourism destination internationally. For domestic tourism, it is Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia. So, I honestly urge my fellow Malaysians to less travel abroad (with the exemption of haj and umrah for Muslims) and support our (Malaysia’s) very own domestic tourism. To all our tourists, near or far, far away, Selamat Datang ke Malaysia! (Welcome to Malaysia!Enjoy your stay!
