Heavenly Home In The Heart Of A Lifestyle Hub

Imagine waking up every day to wonder whether you are still on vacation. You roll off your king-sized bed and freshen up in your private bathroom. Then, you take a 1-kilometer leisure stroll through a peaceful road shaded with lush greenery to the clubhouse. 

When you reach the clubhouse, you are greeted by your friendly neighbours. Together, you enjoy some exercises at the Aqua Gym. After that you take a bath and change into work attire. Then to reward yourself after a full day at work, you treat yourself to a spa before returning home just 10 minutes away. 

All of these are made possible at Clover @ Resort Residence, a freehold development in Bandar Sri Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan. Clover enjoys a central location within the township – a complete and self-contained development.

Amenities Worthy Of Envy

Those who live in Clover have the luxury of all the amenities one could desire, within fast and easy reach to boot. On one side of Clover there are commercial hubs, d’Tempat Country Club, Matrix Global Schools, Sendayan TechValley and several parks. 

On the other side there are more schools: SJK(C) Bandar Sri Sendayan, SJK(T) Bandar Sri Sendayan and SMK Bandar Baru Sri Sendayan. Beyond Bandar Sri Sendayan there are Mydin and AEON hypermarkets, more public schools, parks, hospitals and a shopping mall.

Modern Contemporary Homes

This 30-acre neighbourhood is crafted to give a resort feel and has 366 units of double storey terrace houses. There are two types of units available at Clover – Type A and Type B. All units have 4 bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, where Type B also comes with an enclosed, large backyard garden which offers the family a safe and secure spot to hang out. 

The interior of these houses is graced with premium finishing, laminated floorboards on the staircase and first floor, 2×2 ft tiles at the ground floor, alarm security system and voice intercom system.

Recreation Within The Vicinity

Found only in Clover, there are plenty of facilities reserved for you to stretch your legs within your immediate vicinity. For the health conscious residents, you have multiple outdoor gym stations for your daily workout routines.

Those with children will appreciate a beautiful playground with thematic circular designs sprawled throughout the recreational corner. A barbecue pit, sunken seating area and gazebo shelters await those who love to have outdoor picnics and parties. 

Only 1 kilometer down from Clover, there is d’Tempat Country Club – the resident clubhouse for denizens of Bandar Sri Sendayan.

Space For Everyone In The Family

Space is something that a double-storey house can provide more than any apartment or condominium. When you are stuck in the house for whatever reason, personal space to work, study and play is critical for your physical and mental well-being. 

The two-storey link homes in Clover are big enough for this. The sizes range from 2,586 to 3,120 sq ft. Each unit has a living room on the ground floor and a family area on the first floor.

Living alone VS living with family? Whatever your preference, #YouBelong by EcoWorld has it

A home is a place of respite, comfort and safety. To some, home is where the heart is, where family is. To others, it is a sanctuary where one can truly be and express oneself. In order to truly understand what Malaysians think, EcoWorld collaborated with Newswav to carry out a poll to find out their living preferences.

The poll ran for a week and gathered over 10,000 responses from Newswav users of all walks of life. The results are both insightful and interesting:

  • Prefer to live alone: 14%
  • Like living with their parents: 27%
  • Choose to live alone but close to their parents: 53%

Some respondents even left behind amusing and honest comments:

  • “Alone is the best! Peace and quiet.”
  • “Alone but close enough to my parents so then I can just magically pop up whenever hahaha”
  • “Love my parents but walaowei my father snore[s] damn kau. Stay separately better”
  • “If you stay with your wife[,] better stay alone away from parents/in-laws. They can be near but not same house. Why? #happywifehappylife”

Regardless of your living preference, #YouBelong by EcoWorld has the solution.

Easy Financing for The Tresor @ Gravit8 through HouzKEY

Mitraland Group has collaborated with Maybank Islamic for the HouzKEY programme. This is in line with the developer’s Tresor MyHome campaign to make its latest project, The Tresor @ Gravit8, within easy reach for all walks of life. The process is as simple as submitting an online application on Maybank’s website and clicking the Apply Now button. It is a convenient platform for homebuyers to apply for financing in a hassle-free manner.

Considering that buying a home is a big financial decision, it is worth finding out more about HouzKEY financing. The campaign eases the burden of high down payments for homebuyers who may find this to be a challenge when purchasing a home. Therefore, this programme makes it ideal for first and second time homebuyers such as single individual, young starters and couples, and new families. With HouzKEY, buyers will enjoy 100% financing with no down payment required. They only need to pay a 3-month refundable security deposit upon execution of the HouzKEY Home Financing Agreement. 

The financial scheme is serviced only after the property is completed and is in vacant possession, allowing buyers to save up during the construction period. On top of that, the HouzKEY financial scheme offers lower monthly payments with the best rates so as to ease buyers’ cash flow and reduce their financial burdens. 

The Tresor @ Gravit8 is Mitraland Group’s latest development in Klang South, Selangor. It is strategically located near Johan Setia LRT Station. It can be easily accessed via the KESAS Highway and other major routes such as the South Klang Valley and Federal Highway. Just down the road, there are schools, medical centers, educational institutions and retail malls. Orbix International School has also opened its first Klang Valley campus at the retail component of Gravit8 called Pier8. 

The Tresor is the third phase within Gravit8 and this freehold residential tower takes up 2.75 acres. It is due for completion in 2025 and has a gross development value of RM240 million. Designed with the classic Mediterranean Santorini theme in mind, The Tresor offers the best view among all the residential towers at Gravit8, as it directly fronts the 8-acre iconic Gravit8 Lakepark.

The Lakepark forms the centrepiece of the Gravit8 lakefront community which consists of residential towers, Pier8 Retail Mall, retail shops, while future developments will consist of offices, and a hotel. These components are integrated seamlessly to create a self-sufficient community for residents, occupants and visitors to have a comfortable transition from one zone to the next. The first floor of The Tresor is linked to Pier8 Retail Mall, giving homeowners convenience at their doorstep.

The units range from 952 sq ft to 1,206 sqft in size, comprising 3 beds & 2 baths to 3+1 beds & 2 baths units and are priced from RM516,800. All the units come with 2 parking spaces, except the largest type which allots 3 parking spaces. 

Special units at The Tresor called Parkhomes allow residents the luxury of parking their vehicles directly in front of their units, offering homeowners the best of both worlds – exclusive condo facilities with added security while enjoying the easy convenience of a landed property.  At Level 8, residents get to revel in a 1.3-acre facility deck that houses 24 facilities while the design concept is inspired by Santorini’s natural beauty, created to give homeowners the holiday at home feel all year round.

Mitraland’s CEO, Dato Andy Khoo emphasises that the company strives to stay true to their “Crafting Lifestyles, Creating Value” core values. 

“This collaboration between Maybank Islamic and Mitraland is a strategic move to encourage property ownership and help address the growing issue of homeownership affordability in Malaysia. We understand the dilemma faced by home buyers in these challenging times and economic uncertainties. HouzKEY is an ideal homeownership solution that helps home buyers to own their dream home now. We further welcome the announcement of the extended Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) to 31 December 2021 to stimulate the property market and help buyers in homeownership,” said Sally Lye, Managing Director of Maybank’s Real Estate Ventures. 

“At Mitraland, quality is never compromised and each component is expertly crafted and delivered under continuous supervision for quality assurance. We try to conceptualise projects that interlace character with functionality and quality with ingenuity; and this allows us to maintain our brand position in the marketplace.”

Mitraland Group is one of Malaysia’s leading boutique developers. It has won a string of accolades.

Airfree Air Purifiers Tested To Be Effective In Destroying 80.5% Of The Covid-19 Virus

(KUALA LUMPUR, Jun 21) F J Benjamin Holdings (FJB) said today that the AIRFREE® brand of air purifiers have been tested and certified to be effective in destroying 80.5% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus when released into a  controlled chamber.

The certification by MRIGlobal, a leading American non-profit research organisation, last month followed scientific tests conducted on an AIRFREE® purifier. Complete lab report can be found here.

While Covid-19 spreads mainly between people who are in close contact with each other, studies have shown that infections can arise from exposure to small droplets and particles of the coronavirus that linger in the air even after an infected person has left the area.

Last month, the World Health Organisation acknowledged that there is “emerging evidence” of airborne spread of the novel coronavirus, a change from its previous assessment that the virus is primarily spread by contaminated droplets that fell to the ground.

FJB Group Chief Executive Officer Nash Benjamin said: “The certification by MRIGlobal is a significant step forward for AIRFREE® air purifiers as it provides independent confirmation that AIRFREE®’s proprietary TSS (Thermo- dynamic Sterilisation System) technology is effective.

The manufacturer, AIRFREE® Products Electronics SA, is based in Portugal. It was founded by Carlos Matias, who developed its patented air purification system to help deal with his son’s recurrent allergic crises. The company’s products are distributed in more than 60 countries around the world.

Daniel Matias, Global Sales Officer said: “Most other air purifiers on the market capture airborne microorganisms using a HEPA filter, where they remain alive for some time. The AIRFREE®’s proprietary TSS which heats up to a temperature of 200 degrees Centigrade was created to silently draw bacteria, viruses, and other organic organisms into the ceramic core heated ducts to be destroyed by heat purifying the room, not by just capturing without destroying, and most importantly without any filters to replace.

This is a huge saving to the consumer and the environment. This also helps avoid hazardous air filter replacement, which could put the captured organisms back into the environment.”

FJB is the exclusive distributor for AIRFREE® products in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The Singapore-listed company, which is best known for its fashion labels, set up a Health and Wellness division and began distributing AIRFREE® products in the city-state last year.

Looking to rent a home during this FMCO but the travel restrictions are making it hard for you? Or you realised upon arriving that the home is not the same as how it looked online? 

Searching for a rental home can be exhausting and frustrating, especially during this pandemic. The existence of numerous websites with misleading listings, poor quality photos, and incomplete information make it even worse. 

Instahome understands your worries and addresses all your concerns by allowing you to view, book, and secure a home online safely. That’s right, you can now rent a home without the need to be present at the location! Here are 5 ways how this trusted digital renting website keeps your rental journey safe:

1. Checked Homes For A Worry-Free Stay

Going around looking for the perfect location to rent can be very stressful, especially when you visit properties that turned out to be different from the listed pictures and description. Some will also worry on the trustworthiness of the homeowner and are afraid to be scammed. To prevent these scenarios from happening, all listings on Instahome are inspected and reviewed with a 150-point checklist to ensure that these rental homes meet all the basic requirements. 

2. Real Virtual Tour, Videos, and Photos

Many who have been in the hunt for a rental unit definitely came across listings that were too good to be true. When Instahome checks these properties, the team takes 360-virtual tour videos and HD photos to provide you with legitimate media as references. This will certainly ensure that the cosy vibe room and stylish décor you see in the photos and videos are what you get at your rented stay!

3. Safe Online Viewing Via Virtual Tour

It takes a lot of effort and time to search for a home, schedule for viewing, and drive to all of the properties around town to find the perfect home. Not only is travelling restricted during the FMCO, there are also safety issues when visiting different homes alone, especially for females. To ease this process, Instahome provides a convenient online home-viewing service where you can schedule a virtual tour session wherever you are. The Instahome team will guide you through a virtual tour of your chosen property and answer all of your questions during the session. This is especially convenient if you’re living outside of Klang Valley as this reduces the hassle of planning a one-day trip packed with 3-4 location viewings.

Instahome provides a seamless booking experience where the renting process including the paperwork, signing, payment, and stamping of the tenancy agreement are all done online. All you need to do is submit your IC/passport and the booking fee for the rental stay, and Instahome will notify you once the homeowner has confirmed your booking. The last step would be signing the digital tenancy agreement and paying the advance rental, security deposit, and utility deposit via the Instahome website. And with that, congratulations on your new stay!

5. Protected with Refund Guarantee

For the final part of this journey, the Instahome team checks the property 3 times before you move in and after you have settled down, the team does another round of inspection to ensure that you are satisfied with the stay. If there are any unsatisfactory aspects of the property, you are protected by the Instahome Refund Guarantee or Rehome option where they will find you a new stay.

Something fishy: What these six Malaysian seafood produce sellers have in common

PETALING JAYA, April 26 — Feeling hungry for a bite of the sea?

You’re not the only one as several homegrown suppliers have popped up in recent years to meet the growing demand for fresh seafood in Malaysia.

Many of these brands also saw a boom during the Covid-19 movement control order with more people opting to do their grocery shopping online instead of going to the wet market in person.

As the seafood supplier market expands, companies need to establish a unique identity as it can get tricky differentiating brands that offer such similar products.

Check out our list of six Malaysian seafood produce sellers to find out what they have in common and how they’re setting themselves apart from the competition.

Like many seafood supplier brands, Art of Salmó and My Fishman both feature blue colour palettes and fish illustrations on their logos.

In the midst of this, My Fishman’s logo stands out by highlighting another important aspect of their supply chain: the fisherman.

Art of Salmó also differentiates itself by specialising in one type of fish, the fjord trout, which it imports directly from Norway, while My Fishman offers a variety of seasonal catches sourced from local fishermen.

GL Marine and Long Seng Enterprise

Much like Long Seng Enterprise, GL Marine brands itself as a one-stop-shop when it comes to frozen goods. — Screengrab via GL Marine website

GL Marine and Long Seng Enterprise have similar-looking websites in addition to presenting themselves as one-stop shops for frozen seafood. Both brands also sell processed food in addition to their usual offerings.

In this case, GL Marine sets itself apart by focusing solely on its range of frozen food, which also includes meat, poultry, and lamb.

Meanwhile, Long Seng Enterprise is known for its catalogue consisting of both fresh and frozen food.

Maison Oishi and Senri Malaysia

Whether you’re craving sushi or grilled fish, Maison Oishi and Senri Malaysia have become the go-to seafood supplier when it comes to making Japanese dishes.

Their product offerings are highly similar with both brands also selling a range of Japanese ingredients such as teriyaki sauce, miso paste, and noodles.

The brands’ distinct logos help draw the line between them as Maison Oishi adopts a more modern font, while Senri Malaysia goes down the more traditional route with calligraphy.

In a market where products look near-identical to each other, it’s crucial to create a strong brand identity that resonates with customers.

Getting brands to stand out from the crowd through IP awareness is one of the firm’s key aims with their clients, local and overseas.
