该小组委员还在积极招商和表演者,期望通过有志者共同努力下,打造独特的文化夜市,让文冬更有活力。

这是由文冬区国会议员拿督斯里廖中莱发起的概念,获得了文冬广大市民的认同,尤其一群年轻人更义不容辞挺身而出,擬出一份策划书,期望推动地方上的经济,也提供平台让各界人士进行街头表演,尽情发挥才华。

陈雪燕促贩商加入

文化街小组委员会已多次召开会议,其中一名委员陈雪燕更是落力,她最近在周日早市集与2名伙伴何振华及廖华成派发传单“招兵买马”,促请小贩小商加入,携手合作,共造双贏。

陈雪燕受访时表示,希望文冬人民发挥团结精神,一起打造不一样的文冬风情,吸引游客到来。

她说,文化街就设立在文冬华人大会堂到良友茶餐室的两排街道,每逢星期六从下午5时至晚上11时,相信今年年尾可以落实。

“我们通过派传单方式作出宣传,取得不错的反应,有不少人致电询问和索取摆档申请表格。”

摊档首2个月免租金

她表示,首阶段是招募20至25个摊档,商家可以售卖特色商品和传统小吃,发挥创意,一旦文化街正式落实开跑,首2个月免费租金。

该会也非常欢迎男女老幼进行街头表演,比如唱歌和跳舞,展现个人才华,也有助增添文化街的热闹的气氛。

文冬文化街正寻找合作伙伴,摊位商家和志愿工作者,欲知更多详情,请联络何先生013-299 8664。

Air quality in Peninsular Malaysia remains bad

Air quality in Peninsular Malaysia remains bad

Air quality remained bad today as the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia continued to be blanketed by a heavy shroud of haze, with many coastal cities recording an unhealthy reading on the Air Pollutant Index (API).

According to readings published on the Department of Environment's (DOE) website, six locations including Seremban, Malacca, and Putrajaya were rated as unhealthy (100-200) on the API as at 5pm today.

The Natural Resources and Environment Ministry said in a statement today that the haze is caused by open burning of forests and land in Sumatera, Indonesia according to satellite images captured by the Singaporean based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The agency detected 132 hot spots in Kalimantan, Indonesia, alone, while only one hot spot was detected in Sumatera due to incomplete satellite coverage as of Sunday.

According to satellite coverage, the ministry said, the haze is expected to spread to Pahang and to east Johor in the next 48 hours while in East Malaysia the haze from Kalimantan is expected to spread to west Sarawak and the waters surrounding both Sabah and Sarawak in the same period of time.

The ministry said the country is still experiencing the southwest monsoon phase that is expected to end by mid-September and noted that the haze will likely dissipate by the monsoon transition phase in October.

Meanwhile, the Environment Department will continue monitoring the status and trend of air quality on an hourly basis due to the uncertain haze situation and increased hot spots in Sumatera and Kalimantan.

All government agencies relevant to haze disaster response have also stepped up efforts in preventing open burning locally that will worsen the already unhealthy air quality.

Local governments and land owners have also been instructed to closely monitor and take preventive actions in places that could easily catch fire such as waste disposal spots, forests, farm land, and industrial complexes.

Meanwhile, Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar will also head to Indonesia as soon as possible to meet his counterpart there to discuss solutions and to finalise a memorandum of understanding on cross-border haze prevention.
