5 Reasons To Own A Home in These Awards-Winning Townships

Many people are starting to move out of the city centre due to rising living costs and also for a better living environment. Also, as more highways are built to reduce transportation time between cities and states, living away from the metropolis is becoming more convenient. If you are looking to start a new life in a well-facilitated neighbourhood, these two award-winning Lagenda Properties townships are worthy for your consideration.

Rated as the 3rd happiest district out of 161 others in Malaysia by The Edge, it is no wonder the properties in Bandar Baru Setia Awan Perdana (BBSAP) have been on a roll ever since this township was developed. With 3 phases fully sold out and eight out of nine planned phases successfully launched, this 1,012 acres township offers affordable housing with premium facilities and amenities.

Rooted on 1,089 acres of land is the Lagenda Teluk Intan (LTI) township comprising 7 phases with an estimation of 10,000 homes. This beautiful township has facilities and amenities that will change the landscape of Teluk Intan by introducing a modern lifestyle and culture.

Both of these townships are easily accessible once the West Coast Expressway (WCE) is completed where the travelling time between Kuala Lumpur and the townships will only take 1.5 hours instead of the usual 3 hours. Not only that, BBSAP and LTI are guarded 24-hours by security to ensure that the township is safe all the time. Although these two townships are located at different areas, they both share similarities which makes them both a liveable neighbourhood to consider:

1. Stay in Award-Winning Townships

BBSAP is an award-winning township by Iproperty Development Excellent Awards (IDEA) where this 1,012 acres of township was named one of the best affordable developments in 2019.

Both BBSAP and LTI are known to be advanced townships with smart living systems, community development, accessibility, and many more.

2. Community Development with World Champions

One of the stand-out features of these two townships is the community development plan that aims to make both BBSAP and LTI an athletic and sports talent hub of the country. To achieve this goal, renowned badminton coach Misbun Sidek is appointed to hold sports clinics and activities at both of these townships. This move is not only directed to nurture young talents but to also promote healthier living within the community.

3. Premium Facilities for All To Enjoy!

With a fully equipped gymnasium, clubhouse, golf driving range, an Olympic-size swimming pool, and many more, it is no wonder both BBSAP and LTI are award-winning developments. These premium facilities are available at each of these townships and are open for those living within both townships.

1945 年日本战败后,美国对日本进行接管。由于美国的管控,银行贷款全面取消,Panasonic生产不能正常进行。当时,他们欠下高额债务,员工工资发不出来,导致许多人离职。艰难时刻,松下幸之助不气馁地说:不景气时,正好可以思考、反省、检讨、研究。这一思索,可能好计划、好主意就源源而出。
1951 年,随着美国对日的各项限制解除,日本经济开始复苏,Panasonic情况也逐渐好转,摆脱经营危机。松下幸之助表示,在狂风暴雨中,Panasonic终于重新站起来了,他呼吁要以「今天重新开业」的心态开展经营活动。

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

It can be hard to tell the difference between seafood supplier brands when most of the products look the same. — Pixabay pic

* This article is brought to you by Henry Goh & Co.

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.

Art of Salmó and My Fishman

Both brands use ocean-inspired illustrations for their logos. — Pictures via Facebook/artofsalmo and Facebook/myfishman.my

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.

Long Seng Enterprise highlights its fresh seafood in addition to its frozen range. — Screengrab via Long Seng website

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

These brands often pop up when you’re on the hunt for fresh seafood to prepare Japanese meals. — Pictures via Facebook/maisonoishi and Facebook/senrimalaysia

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.

Henry Goh & Co is the leading intellectual property (IP) firm in Malaysia with strategic expertise in trademark, patent, industrial design, and copyright protection.

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.

他,就是潘娜拉面包店(Panera Bread Company)的创始人罗纳德夏奇(Ronald Shaich)。






老板不买账 他辞职


1980年,当年27岁的他,以10万美元的创业资本,开设了第一间奶油饼干店,取名Cookie Jar。

经营不久,罗纳德夏奇就发现店内的客流量都是从中午12 点以后才来。为了争取更多生意量,他找到了一家当地小烘培坊“Au Bon Pain”提供法式面包,每天早上售卖面包。

果然,店里的营业额增加了不少;1981年,他跟Au Bon Pain洽谈合并,把企业壮大。



罗纳德夏奇把已经有获利的Cookie Jar注入Au Bon Pain,取得后者60%股权。尽管Au Bon Pain很有潜能,但营运状况却一片混乱,也没有能力购买新机器使用。

干衣机烘菠菜 够创新

令人津津乐道的是,Au Bon Pain的热销品 “菠菜牛角包”(spinach croissant),当初因为买不起昂贵机器而使用干衣机来烘干菠菜。这个创新的解决方案虽然曾险些闹出人命,但菠菜牛角包无疑是经典创作。




Au Bon Pain的“快速慢食” (Fast Casual)概念大受欢迎,业务越做越大,公司在1991年挂牌上市,于1993年分店已经达到250 间。

从波士顿的一间小店到上市挂牌,罗纳德夏奇的野心并没有因为这样而得到满足。他事业上的另一个重大转捩点,就是收购了分店都开在郊区的St. Louis Bread,并把之前的成功经验再重演一次!

毅然售业务 往前看

 St. Louis Bread店面主打宽敞空间,罗纳德夏奇把面包店打造成人们的“第三空间”,即除了家里和办公室之外,可以逗留的另一个地方,客户可以选择在这里见面聊天、开会、面试等。

在St. Louis Bread易名潘娜拉面包店后,罗纳德夏奇把业务发展推向另一个高峰。


但当初也因为要把业务重心专注在潘娜拉,罗纳德夏奇在经历一番董事局纷争后,于1999年把Au Bon Pain 脱售给一家私募基金公司。

试问谁会敢在好景的时候,把赚钱的生意卖掉? 这里反映的是罗纳德夏奇的眼光、远见 、胆识及魄力。

他表示,Au Bon Pain是他一手培育成长的企业,他也很爱这间公司,但是身为企业家,他必须往前看。




危机时期扩张 股价飙 

到了2000年金融风暴期间,潘娜拉业务不但没有受影响,甚至是以每3天开一间新店的速度扩张,公司股价从3美元急飙到 315美元!这等于150倍的成长。





2017年,潘娜拉面包店以75亿美元脱售给JAB控股公司,罗纳德夏奇也于同年辞去总裁职位。JAB控股公司后来也购入Au Bon Pain,使两个品牌又重新回归到同一集团下。


  1. 从身边的小观察发掘出决定性的创新,因为细心观察消所以精准判断情势,使每一次转型都胜券在握。
  2. 采用逆向操作思维,在危机时期扩张,不错失因危机而衍生的商机。
  3. 从Cookie Jar到Au Bon Pain再到潘娜拉,一家企业从小做到大,需要很多的时间、经历很多改变,每一个转变都是危机与商机并存,因此创业者要看的是长远利益。

Uncle Jet’s Fishing Journey 1: New investor investing into your company? Yay or Nay?

“Give a man a fish and you feed him a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Uncle Jet’s Fishing Journey is all about business, entrepreneurship, share investment and personal finance. Through Newswav, Uncle Jet hopes to share and learn together with all readers, creating a more financial-literate Malaysia together.

Journey 1: New Investor investing into your company? Yay or Nay?

Whether your company is currently (a) idealisation stage (b) startup (c) traditional growth stage company (d) matured company looking for exit, you will always encounter opportunities for third party investor to invest in your company.

If you are at idealisation stage, looking for your friends/families to invest in your idea. Make sure the expectations are set clearly in the beginning. If your partner is merely investing as a passive shareholder, don’t be upset when he/she is not contributing to the growth of the company while you are working your head off, sacrificing your social time, family time and health. If you are expected to run the show alone, make sure the compensation package is agreed in the first place, and built into the cost structure. You could also structure some form of sweat equity upon achieving certain KPIs.

Most of these friend/family funded companies will not have a Shareholder Agreement. When thing turns sour, remember not to do anything harmful to a friend/family/investor who trusted you in the beginning. You are responsible for your investor. If you have to resort to buying your investor out, make sure he/she will get his fair share of upside (if the company is doing well).

A good reputation goes a long way.

For most startups, the valuations are normally based on future prospects, rather than actual profitability.

At this stage, most valuations are crafted based on how much you want to raise in relation to how much equity you are willing to give. IE: if you willing to give out 10% of your equity, in change of RM1m, you are effectively valueing your company at RM10m.

However, this may not add up.

Even if the company may turn profitable in the future, the investor may not be able to reap good returns if the entry valuation is too demanding. If you expect your company to worth RM10m in 5 years, don’t ask your investor to invest at RM10m valuation today. It doesn’t justify for all the risks and hardwork, just to exit at his entry valuation 5 years later.

Most of the exit will be based on profitability ( rather than story telling ), unless you are selling to strategic buyers or your company is a unicorn with billion dollars revenue set to list on NASDAQ (on revenue multiple). The former, generally, knows what to do with your business and how your business can be integrated into the existing business verticals. Even then, the purchase price will also be based on traditional EV/EBITDA or PER ratio (but may be higher than typical financial investors). The latter can be far-fetched and is also proven to be unsustainable.

Don’t be delusional by all the deals happening around you (Company X has raised Y in its series A funding at USD Z valuation), you don’t know the actual details behind. Higher valuations may come with strings attached.

As a startup founder, be realistic with your valuations. Be genuine on your expectations and also be accountable to your projections. Make sure you have proper plan to achieve the promised projections.

If you are unable to attach a valuation to your company, one way to do it is to structure as a convertible loan, where the loan is convertible based on future performance (x% discount on future valuation).

It is pointless to have a good future prospects, without a good business model and cost structure generating cash flow and profitability. Your company is better off surviving on profitability and cash flow as compared to relying on fund raising. What if you are down with 3 months runaway, and your VC who has been supporting your growth strategies stopped funding you. I guarantee you will have sleepless nights, thinking about cutting OPEX, losing your company, your employees losing job, etc.

If you have raised your fund, work towards the projections you promised to your investors while looking closely to your cost budget. You can still grow your company while maintaining a healthy EBITDA! If you have to raise funds, raise it early. It normally takes 6-12 months to close a deal (sourcing, negotiation, due diligence, legal drafting and closing).

If you are the lucky fews, currently preparing to exit your existing established and profitable business, be realistic on your valuations and most importantly, start to adopt an exit mindset.

When you are exiting your business, your buyer will normally require you to stay as a minority founder for atleast 2-3 years (unless it is a strategic buyer). It may be hard because you have been your own boss for your whole life. Suddenly, you are required to do monthly reporting and also reporting to the new shareholders (whose representatives may be younger and less experienced than you).

If you are left with minority stake in the company, respect the exit terms, be genuine and work together with your new shareholder toward the final exit/pay-day on your minority portion.

If you have exited completely, (good job!) respect the exit terms and work on the knowledge transfer while enjoying your big pay day!

Again, a good reputation goes a long way!

Above all, all companies with multiple shareholders should always have a Shareholder Agreement. You can get it at less than RM10k for a simple one. It is essential in protecting the interest as a founder, as well as the minority shareholders. Under normal circumstances, the Shareholder Agreement is practically a piece of paper kept in your drawer. It becomes important when thing turns sour.

A good Shareholder Agreement should always include reserved matters, exit options, pre-emptive rights, right of first refusals, liquidation preference, tag-along, drag-along, priority-rights, veto-rights (if any), etc.

An example: if you and your shareholders are exiting your company, your minority shareholders are comfortable with the exit price, but you, on the other hand, think your company is worth much more. You want to negotiate and you are ready to walk away from the deal if you don’t get the price you want, but your partner wants the current price, without jeopardising the deal on the table. This may result in a potential deadlock. A good Shareholder Agreement can mitigate this.

If you do not existing have an Shareholder Agreement, and if your financial permits, get it done.

If you already have one, I hope that you will never have to bring it out, until you are selling majority of your company for a big buck!
