Best Dive Spots
In Malaysia
Blessed with an abundance of
beautiful coral reefs and rich marine
wildlife, Malaysia is home to some
of the best dive spots in the world.
Swim with turtles, explore natural
underwater caves or mingle amongst
gigantic schools of barracuda at
these five spots that no diver
should ever miss.
Unique Pet Cafés
Pet cafés are all the rage these days,
with many drawn to the comfort
and companionship the animals
offer. While cat and dog cafés are
the most popular, there are also
establishments that feature exotic
animals, such as fluffy sheep and
adorable owls. We list five unique pet
cafés that should be on the itinerary
of your next trip.

Editor’s Note
On Malaysia’s Independence Day last year, 31 August, David set out
on yet another fund-raising project. This time, he is attempting to
cycle to the Seven Modern Wonders of the World to raise RM5 million
(USD1.27 million) for children with cancer. David is accompanied by
Ving Lee, a young photographer. Their project, Seven Wunders, will
see them on the road for two years, a journey that will take them to
Taj Mahal in India, Petra in Jordan, the Colosseum in Italy, Christ the
Redeemer in Brazil, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichén Itzá in Mexico and
The Great Wall of China.
Seeing the world by bike isn’t an original idea for sure. But to leave
your family, friends and all that you’re comfortable with behind to
pursue a cause greater than yourself takes a heart of gold, and as
David puts it, “the ability to say, screw it!”. David and Ving are asking
Malaysians to donate RM1.00 each. All monies will go to the National
Cancer Society of Malaysia’s Children’s Home of Hope. If you are
inspired by their story and wish to support, read our article on pages
56-59 to see how you can help.

The Commonwealth Games is taking place in Gold Coast, Australia
this month. If you’re planning to be there during the games from
4 to 15 April, check out the list of fun things you could do in the city
on pages 30-33. We’ve also put together a list of the places across
Australia where you can sample the best avocado dishes, from
avocado smoothies to giant burritos filled with fresh avocado and raw
fish, to fuel your trip.

Our cover story this month looks at the gentrification of Bangkok’s
oldest road, Charoen Krung. The 150-year-old thoroughfare, the city’s
first road built in 1861, fell into disrepair in the early 20th century
but now attracts the young and affluent middle class to its hip new
restaurants, bars and galleries. Similarly, in Kuala Lumpur, the 1950s
Zhongshan Building in Kampung Attap has been transformed into
a unique space for creative types to meet and work together. Indie
art spaces like Zhongshan are coming up in the city, offering an
alternative to traditional white-walled galleries. Our writer Tan Lee
Kuen takes a look at these platforms situated in warehouses, shop
lots and vacant buildings.
Have you ever thought about the legacy you would like to
leave behind when you go? Something that will allow you to be
remembered for what you have contributed to the world?
Some of you might have. One person I know is charting his now.
His name is David Wu.
David wants to leave this earth with a big bang. You might have heard
or read about him. He’s the guy who walked 600 kilometres from
Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bahru in 2015 to raise funds for the repair of
village houses damaged by floods. He’s also the guy who cycled from
his home town of Alor Setar in Kedah to Taishan, China in search of his
grandfather’s birthplace while simultaneously raising more funds to
repair other damaged homes. If you think he felt accomplished in his
life after these two feats, he didn’t.
Finally, our in-flight entertainment this month offers up the musical
biopic The Greatest Showman, amidst other new movies. It’s a show
worth watching, if only for the musical numbers. But if you’re a fan of
Hugh Jackman, need I say more?
I hope you will enjoy reading this month’s issue as much as we have
enjoyed putting it together for you. See you next month. ■

Letter Of The Month
I remember my very first Malaysia Airlines flight. I was four. Our
family was being transferred from Kota Kinabalu to Semporna, a
beautiful coastal district on the east coast of Sabah. Although the
day of flying was four weeks away, as a child, the anticipation felt
like a million years. When the day finally came, I made sure to dress
in my best. Like all first experiences, it felt magical. We couldn’t tell
if we were scared or excited since none of my siblings knew what to
expect. The flight lasted only 40 minutes, but it was the highlight of
our lives for many years to come. Now almost 40 years later, I have
experienced many firsts with Malaysia Airlines: my first time flying to
Kuala Lumpur with my classmates (14 years old); my first time flying
to London to further my studies and therefore, my first time being so
far away from my family (18 years old); my first overseas work travel
(22 years old); my first time enrolling in an airline loyalty programme
(Enrich, 26 years old); my first time missing a flight with a colleague
(Oh, if only you were reading this, Hana Harun!); the first time I
redeemed my airline miles for an international flight (29 years old);
the first time I used an airline mobile app (38 years old); the first time
I shed tears over an airline tragedy; and finally this – the first time I
am writing to you. I grew up with you and I have laid my trust in you
all these years, Malaysia Airlines. For that, thank you from the
bottom of my heart.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 10 | April 2018
MIZAL ASHFEK KHAN, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
I had a great time reading a short piece in your February 2018
edition. It was about the incumbent Group CEO of Malaysia Airlines,
Captain Izham Ismall, who assumed the position on 1 December 2017.
To my surprise, I never thought that the man behind the cockpit
commandeering the longest flight and fastest round-the-world flight on
the nostalgic B777-200 in 1997 was him! In his brief 15-minute interview,
his words would definitely have an impact on readers of Going Places. He
believes that one should never dwell on regrets as it is a waste of time
trying to change something that has already happened. His response to
every single question being asked was spontaneous and witty at the
same time. With his good personal attributes, I hope that Malaysia
Airlines will soar to greater heights, just as it did during its glorious past.
AMER EKRAM BIN AZMI, Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia
I read your February 2018 edition during my journey to Kuala
Lumpur. I was very intrigued by the article “The Plague Fighter”, a story
about Dr. Wu Lien-Teh, who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in
Medicine in 1935. I was very surprised to read that a Malaysian was
already nominated for this prestigious award at that time. The article was
educational and at the same time, helpful for the Malaysian medical
profession. I shared this article with my medical students during lectures,
asking them to ponder the question of how we can continuously upgrade
our medical knowledge in pursuit of a Nobel Prize in the future.
Thank you, Going Places, for the article, and thank you very much,
Malaysia Airlines, for the kind hospitality and safe journey.

Each spring, thousands of runners take to the streets of London as part of the Virgin Money London Marathon, one of the world’s top
marathon events. The scenic route allows participants to soak in the city’s rich history and architecture, crossing the River Thames on the iconic
Tower Bridge, passing through famous landmarks such as the Tower of London and Big Ben, before finishing in front of Buckingham Palace.
Adding fun and cheer to the event are runners dressed up in quirky costumes, the likes of giant shoes and superhero characters. Even if you’re
not a participant, it’s easy to get swept up in the festive atmosphere as the route is lined with spectators from all over the world cheering
runners on to the finish line.

classes for all levels, including beginners and children, as well as
seminars on health, nutrition and personal development. Come

touted as the largest French event in Malaysia. Culture enthusiasts
can look forward to the latest French films, concerts, live shows, food
offerings and more. Some of the exciting highlights this year include
the screening of Amok, a French theatre adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s
novel set in Malaysia in the beginning of the 20th century, as well as
performances by rock-power trio Lysistrata, an award-winning band
and a regular at some of France’s biggest festivals.

Fresh Start
Celebrated since ancient times, Songkran is an important religious
and cultural festival that marks the beginning of a new year for the
Thai people. Traditionally, celebrations involved the pouring of water
on the young and elderly to wash away sins and bad luck. While this
is still practised, the festival has taken on a fun twist: full-blown water
fights, where everyone, including unsuspecting tourists walking down
the streets, become fair game to an arsenal of water guns, hoses
and buckets. Those seeking a more tranquil experience can join the
throng of devotees at the temples for prayers or offer food to monks
to earn merits in accordance with Buddhist belief.

Vietnamese On Battersea
Spicing up Battersea’s restaurant scene is Mrs Le’s Banh Mi and Grill, the fifth restaurant under the Le family banner that includes Mien
Tay, which the late and savage food critic AA Gill wrote “may well be the best Vietnamese (restaurant) in London”. As its name suggests,
this restaurant on Lavender Hill features a selection of familiar Vietnamese street favourites like banh mi made with homemade pâté and
Vietnamese whipped butter, filled with grilled pork, beef and chicken. Hot off the grill is a wide selection of meat – pork ribs, spring chicken, and
duck with mung bean paste are just some of what’s available – and seafood sourced from the Billingsgate Market; among the favourites are
oysters with house-made cheese sauce and stuffed freshwater snails.

Some of Asia’s brightest culinary stars will converge at the Ubud
Food Festival, a three-day festival on 13-15 April, when over 100
speakers will share their culinary insights, ideas and dishes based
on this year’s theme of ‘Generasi Inovasi’ (Innovation Generation).
The festival will feature a range of ticketed and free events, from

notable chefs from Indonesia, as well as Chef Rishi Naleendra from
Cheek by Jowl in Singapore and Chef Jun Lee from Soigné in Seoul.
This year’s World Gourmet Summit takes place on 2-29 April, and is

nonetheless, exciting cuisines. Themed ‘The Discovery WGS’, it will
be presented by some of the most talented chefs from Asia, Eastern
and Central Europe, and America such as Michelin Chef Patrizia Di
Benedetto. There will be a series of ticketed tasting events, talks
and masterclasses such as the WGS Discovery Brunch at Tamarind

Taste Australia In Adelaide
For a little taste of Paris on Jalan Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur, head
down to the newly opened Brasserie Fritz. Located on the ground
floor of WOLO Hotel, the all-day brasserie includes a bakery where
croissants, baguettes and pastries are made fresh every morning,
while the main restaurant features a range of French-inspired meals
like steak frites, duck confit and beef bourguignon, as well as a
seafood bar, where you can order an eight-course omakase meal
personally prepared by Chef de Cuisine Steve Ariffin. If you fancy a
drink or two, sidle up to the gorgeous bar, where you can order a light
spritzer during the day, and a classic cocktail when the sun sets. Also
recommended: the hot chocolate, which is made from single-origin
cocoa from Malaysia, Tanzania, Ecuador and Brazil.
There’s much ado about Adelaide during Tasting Australia, a food
festival that showcases the best of South Australia’s food scene.
Taking place on 13-22 April, the festival includes tantalising events
such as Tasting Australia Airlines, a day-long programme that sees
you travelling to vineyards and restaurants across South Australia on
a 50-seat chartered plane; Glasshouse Kitchen, where star-studded
chefs will present their award-winning dishes; and East End Cellars
Masterclass, which will help you gain a deeper understanding of
Australian wine, beer and spirits. Chefs joining the line-up include
Christian Puglisi of Relæ in Copenhagen; Norbert Niederkofler of
three-Michelin-starred St Hubertus in Italy; and Australia’s Chef Jock
Zonfrillo of Orana and Dan Hunter of Brae.

Solo Exhibition
Painting A Masterpiece
Malaysian artist Ronnie Mohamad presents his most recent
creations from the Pollution and Tug of War series. He also introduces
his Gossip Series at a solo exhibition organised by the Malaysian
National Visual Art Gallery. Through a variety of human interactions,
he expresses tradition and modernity, energy and serenity combined.
He also explores environmental issues impacting daily life. Dramatic
effects are introduced in some of his paintings by the inclusion of
sporadic colors within the immensity of his mono-chromatic charcoal
creations. His signature fingerprints, which are present in a confident
manner through the canvas, adorn the scene in an
unassuming manner.
Some 80 years after its creation, the Musée national Picasso-Paris in
France, in partnership with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina
Sofía of Madrid, Spain, presents the story of Picasso’s La Guernica,
one of the world’s most famous works of art. The astounding
artwork, created after the bombing of the town Guernica during
the Spanish civil war, was an anti-Franco masterpiece and has since
become a symbol of anti-fascism. The painting itself will remain in its
permanent location in Madrid; however, on display in Musée Picasso
will be a vast collection of sketches and preparatory works
as well as an in-depth historical insight into the events
surrounding its conception.

Tour de
Ampang
goingplacesmagazine.com | 28 | April 2018
They say you never forget how to ride a
bicycle. Well, once again they are wrong, and I’ve
got to stop believing everything they say. I’m 50
years old and I just bought a bicycle but the last
time I rode a bike was when I was 18. I used to
love cycling when I was younger because it gave
me the freedom to visit my friends who lived
on the other side of town and because of the
exhilarating sense of achievement when I was
able to eventually conquer the steepest hills.
But then I learnt to drive, so when I sat on my
brand new bike for the first time, I wondered,
“How do I switch this thing on?” I have managed
to remember how to start but I can’t remember
how to stop, so I’ve just been cycling up and
down the driveway of my condo until I collapse
from exhaustion, which takes all of ten minutes.
I haven’t plucked up the courage to go onto the
roads of Ampang yet because, well, there are
Malaysian drivers out there.
in the chain. So, they wore trousers, which was
considered to be scandalous, and when young
ladies went out cycling with men, the elderly
chaperones couldn’t keep up, which created
other scandals. The bicycle, too, created a
scandal in Malaya in the 1890s, with outraged
letters to Taiping’s newspaper the Perak Pioneer,
complaining that Malay boys were riding their
bikes dangerously fast. Fortunately, that sort of
thing doesn’t happen anymore.
The bicycle would seem to be an old-fashioned
thing but a hundred years ago, they were the
height of modernity, helping to, quite literally,
pave the way for better roads, the spread of
national newspapers, kick-start Malaya’s early
rubber industry and even improve gender
equality. In the 1880s, the bicycle was suddenly
improved when wooden wheels were replaced
with tyres made from Malaya’s brand new rubber
plantations. There were not many cars back
then and companies like Dunlop and Michelin
sprang up to manufacture the pneumatic tyre for
bicycles. In Europe, there was a sudden craze for
cycling but it was dangerous for women because
they had to wear huge skirts that would catch
But it was the French who really took to the
bicycle. France of a hundred years ago loved
speed and it was they who pioneered car racing,
the airplane, fast trains, fast ocean liners and the
bicycle. In 1903, the struggling sports newspaper
L’Auto introduced the first Tour de France. L’Auto
was printed on yellow paper, hence the race
leader wears a yellow jersey. In 1903, 60 cyclists
fought through six stages that were each an
astonishing 400 kilometres long. In a country
that was barely connected by railways, the
cyclists raced along appalling roads with spare
tyres strapped around their bodies, swigging
from bottles of wine (it was safer than drinking
any offered drinks), smoking lots of Gitanes,
The bicycle would seem to be an old-fashioned
thing but a hundred years ago, they were the height of
modernity, helping to, quite literally, pave the way for
better roads, the spread of national newspapers,
kick-start Malaya’s early rubber industry and even
improve gender equality.
eating at roadside cafés, drinking brandy to perk
themselves up and then snoozing under trees.
There was a lot of cheating in the early editions
of le Tour. It was suspected that some cyclists
took the train to the finishing line and in 1903,
the pre-race favourite had himself dragged along
by a car with a piece of string that he gripped
with his teeth. He eventually pulled out of the
race after being given a poisoned bottle of
lemonade. Even now, over 100 years later, Tour
de France cyclists will not drink anything offered
by a roadside spectator. Fortunately, cheating
doesn’t happen on the Tour de France anymore.
Although I love the Tour de France I don’t think
I’ll be competing in it with my new bicycle. Not
this year, at least. Not until I’ve summoned up
enough courage to face the Malaysian roads. But
the good news is that I won’t be alone because
cycling is becoming popular in Malaysia again.
With the explosion of cars on the roads from
the 1980s, virtually all bicycles were swept away
but now they are starting to come back. There
are now a great many bicycle shops doing brisk
business and a new breed of cycling enthusiasts
is determinedly seeking out challenging routes.
We have forgotten that Malaysia was once a
nation of cyclists but ever so slowly drivers will
re-learn that the bicycle has as much right to the
roads as the car.
I recently drove past a night-time cyclist who
had wrapped so many lights around himself
that he was blinking like a Christmas tree.
I could try that. ■

Azwan Khan Osman Khan | IN PROFILE
Getting The
Strategy Right
Celcom Axiata, the oldest telecommunications
provider in Malaysia, has had a strong run despite a
challenging market. Its deputy chief executive officer,
Azwan Khan Osman Khan, shares why.
Tell us more about yourself and your
role at Celcom.
In 2005, I joined Celcom as chief strategy officer,
when we were still part of Telekom Malaysia.
After de-merging from TM in 2008, the cellular
and international businesses became what is now
the Axiata Group. I moved there as group chief
strategy officer, and stayed in my role for five
years. I then moved to Sri Lanka as Group Chief
Operating Officer for Axiata’s Sri Lankan entities,
and in 2016, I rejoined Celcom as Deputy Chief
Executive Officer. I run the revenue line directly
and make sure that the numbers come in.
How has the journey been so far?
It has been great! Celcom as a company has had
its shares of ups and downs. Things were looking
down when I first joined in 2005. I was part of the
team that managed to turn the company around,
and we had many years of excellent growth.
When I rejoined in 2016, however, we had lost
subscribers and revenue, falling to third place
among the major telecommunications providers
in Malaysia. Things took a turn for the better last
year, where we’ve had a good run and grown the
market share, and are back to our #2 position.
How have mobile consumer trends changed
in the last few years?
Clearly, the big change in the past decade has
been the switch from voice to data. The average
consumption per person is now 8GB of data on
mobile. We recognise that a lot of it is on video,
so we introduced services like Video Walla,
which gives our users huge access to pure
video content.
The consumers of today also expect network
quality to be better than ever, so we are
consistently investing in that. What matters
is consistency, and we believe in providing an
excellent and consistent experience, no matter
where you are in the country. Although video
and data are the current trend, we’re still trying
April 2018_InProfile_Celcom Axiata.indd 35
to anticipate how we can be more relevant to
customers going forward.
Another aspect that has changed is customer
experience. Gone are the days when you can
purely rely on putting base stations and expect
people to subscribe to you. Consumers today
have much higher expectations. There are those
who want pure online interaction, but there
are also segments who prefer coming into a
customer service branch and talking to someone
face-to-face. This is why we’re embarking
on a strong omni-channel experience. We’ve
revamped our website to be more user-friendly,
and improved on our app, to give people the
freedom to choose how they want to interact
with us, and we will continue to focus on
providing the best customer experience.

Interview Eris Choo | Photography courtesy of Celcom Axiata Berhad
Celcom recently launched several
lifestyle offerings. How does this tie in
to your services?
I strongly believe that as a telco, we have to
go beyond providing pure telecommunications
services. The type of products that we have
launched recently, such as our Celcom First plans,
really takes us beyond that. When you sign up
with us, you can choose to redeem free one-off
return flight tickets to any destination in ASEAN,
or monthly movie tickets from Golden Screen
Cinemas, discounts for the ride-sharing app Grab,
drinks from Tealive, and more.
How do you choose which companies
to partner with?
We look at market trends and make sure that
we’re providing things that are relevant to
people’s lifestyles. For example, there are more
people using ride sharing these days, so we
partnered with Grab to provide discounts to
users who use the app. In terms of leisure and
entertainment, Malaysians are avid moviegoers,
so we partnered with Golden Screen Cinemas to
provide users with free movie tickets monthly.

IN PROFILE | Azwan Khan Osman Khan
One of the things that we do very well, both
at Axiata and at Celcom, is partnerships.
Many people don’t realise that we were the
first to open our doors to Mobile Virtual
Network Operators, such as TuneTalk, RedOne,
Merchantrade and XOX since 2008, where they
‘ride’ on our network but are essentially an
independent operator. We also have a strong
partnership with Digi, another major Malaysian
telecommunications operator. Despite being
competitors on the retail front, we work together
on building infrastructure and connectivity. Our
view is quite simple. It doesn’t make sense to
try and reinvent the wheel, so we partner with
whoever is best in the business.
What are some of the current challenges in
the industry?
goingplacesmagazine.com | 36 | April 2018
Data pricing is an issue. Companies are giving
away more data for less. On the surface, that’s
a good thing for consumers, but what we do
not like is fine print. There would be packages
that promise a large amount of data, but only
a set amount can be used on the weekend, or
weekdays, or on certain platforms.
One of the first things that I did when I came in
as Deputy CEO was to simplify our packages. In
December 2016, we launched our prepaid XPAX
#NoKelentong, to get away from all that. What
you see is what you get.
Broader challenges in the industry would
include capital expenditure. We spent RM1.5
billion (USD 383 million) in capex in 2017, even
though industry revenues were flat.
I strongly believe that as a
telco, we have to go beyond providing pure
telecommunication services. The type of products
that we have launched recently, such as our Celcom
First plans, really takes us beyond that.
Why are revenues not improving?
Hyper-competition. Typically, most markets in
the world consist of three big players that are
profitable. Even India, for example, used to have
nine to ten telecommunication players, but
smaller ones are consolidating because they
are unprofitable.
In Malaysia, we have three major players and
two smaller players. If you’re a small entity and
you’re losing money, the only way to compete is
by price, which effectively brings down market
revenues overall. From our point of view, we are
very clear that we will not fight in a price war.
Our products will be the best in value and overall
customer experience, but not necessarily be
the cheapest.
Celcom has consistently invested in
improving 4G coverage nationwide.
What does this entail?
Celcom currently has the strongest rural coverage
in the country, especially on 2G, while our 4G is
on par. Revenue from some of these obscure
sites is low, but having said that, these are
the places where you are most likely to need
coverage if you run into trouble. A lot of our 4G
investment also involves increasing coverage
and bringing a good broadband experience to
rural areas.
Profitability matters, but as a company, our
purpose is to build awesome moments and
bring great experiences to people. In the
broadest sense, we hope to open up worlds
beyond telecommunications. Our lifestyle
offerings, for example, have nothing to do
with a telco product. It’s about the holistic
awesomeness of being a Celcom user.
What plans are in the pipeline for 2018?
We will continue to invest heavily in improving
our network, to ensure we are the top,
undisputed 4G network in Malaysia.
Customer experience will also be our top priority.
We use Net Promoter Score surveys to gauge
and improve on our services. Customers are
asked to rate us from a scale of 0-10, and how
likely they would recommend us to friends or
family. Even our partners, such as our dealers,
get surveyed, which is a radical shift in our
mindset, where we ask them to judge us.
Another side we are looking into is digitisation.
This includes simplifying the business using IT,
and adopting a digital mindset. If a user wants
to sign up with us, they can come online, key in
their details, and we will deliver a SIM card right
to their doorstep. If they want to top up their
prepaid cards, we’ve got digital apps that can
be paid for through online transactions with a
simple click.
Since September 2016 with the new
management team, we’ve done a lot to simplify
processes and change the internal culture
and mindset of the company. Things were
somewhat bureaucratic in the past, but they’ve
gotten better. Most importantly though, we are
increasingly obsessed with providing the best
end-to-end customer experience as our core
strategy. By that I don’t mean customer service
alone, but everything, including the product,
network, the sign-up or registration experience,
everything; End to end. We hope that with all
these strategies in place, we can look forward to
a strong 2018. ■

The oldest paved road in Bangkok,
Charoen Krung Road was constructed after
European consuls in the city had petitioned for
a road suitable for their carriages to be built.
Completed in 1864, the 8.5-kilometre road loosely
follows the Chao Phraya river, passing through
Chinatown and Rattanakosin. It was an important
thoroughfare of its time, encouraging growth and
expansion in the surrounding areas, including the
city's first tram line.
Do
The area went into decline in the early 20th
century, but of late, is showing renewed energy as
a slew of new restaurants, bars and galleries pop
up along Charoen Krung Road and its adjacent
sois or lanes. Much of the action is focused on
the Chinatown area, where a burgeoning creative
community is creating a scene that feels fresh and
exciting. In May 2017, creative hothouse Thailand
Creative and Design Centre – better known as
TCDC – set up its new home in the historical Grand
Postal Building, giving the area's lively aspirations
a real shot in the arm.
After the success of The Jam Factory, Thai
architect Duangrit Bunnag hopes to work the
same magic with the ambitious Warehouse 30
project. He has converted a clutch of old World
War II-era storage facilities a stone's throw from
the river into a multi-purpose space for events,
designer boutiques and coffee shops. To-date,
the space has hosted design events and creative
markets, as well as regular film screenings. For
upcoming events, check their Facebook page
for updates.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 40 | April 2018
Despite the influx of new blood, the
neighbourhood retains its slow-paced community
feel where new businesses know and support
one another while co-existing happily with longterm residents. Napol Jantraget of up-to-theminute eatery 80/20 sees an increasing change
in the neighbourhood but strives to retain the
amicable spirit of the place, saying, "The locals
have been here for generations and we don't
want to change anything; we just want to be
good neighbours."

TCDC is a government initiative to inspire and
boost Thailand's fertile design and creative
scene. To that end, its sleek new home has
an impressive design library with more than
70,000 books on art and design, a maker space,
a gallery, auditoriums and function rooms. The
rooftop garden offers sweeping views of the area.
Non-members can use the library by purchasing
a one-day pass.
One of the pioneering forces in the area's
rejuvenation is Speedy Grandma. Opened in
2012, the gallery continues to host some of the
city's edgiest exhibitions by new and established
artists, as well as hold some of its wildest artsy
parties. A second gallery, the nearby Soy Sauce
Factory, has reopened after a short closure, as a
showroom for design company 56th Studio and
as a pop-up space for art.

Where to go in Kuala Lumpur for your next art fix.
Words Tan Lee Kuen | Photography SooPhye
Situated in a warehouse, shop lots and
a vacant building, these art spaces (and
a hub) are exciting alternatives to the 'white
cube' galleries.
The Zhongshan Building
goingplacesmagazine.com | 52 | April 2018
While not your traditional art space, The
Zhongshan Building is making waves as a
creative destination. The idea is a long time
coming in Kuala Lumpur, a stimulating cluster
with cheap rent and adequate infrastructure
where artists, designers and other creative
folks can work, gather and collaborate. So when
the Zhongshan Building made its first blip on
the city's creative radar, it wasn't long before it
snowballed into a vibrant hub and one of the
city's arts and design hotspots.
Situated in Kampung Attap, a quiet enclave
within walking distance of the bustle of
Petaling Street, Zhongshan is made up of three
interconnected shophouses that once housed
the Zhongshan Association, a frozen foods
supplier and other merchants. In the hands of
a bunch of forward-thinkers, the 1950s building
has been transformed into a unique platform
that allows a gathering of creative disciplines
and the meeting of people. Today, the 12-unit
building is occupied by art galleries, artist
studios, design and fashion studios and research
centres, as well as a library, a record store
and more.
This is thanks to Our ArtProjects, a two-woman
art consultancy outfit comprising Liza Ho and
Snow Ng. The freelancing duo were curating
pop-up art shows in various venues when Ho's
mother-in-law inherited the property. "We were
not actively looking for a gallery space but when
this opportunity came, we were inspired to do
something with it," says Ho.
Wanting good neighbours, Ho and Ng invited
their like-minded friends to join them, offering
affordable rent and a chance to be part of a
close-knit creative community. It didn't take long
for the idea to catch and the building was almost
fully occupied within the year. "We didn't have
an exact plan for the space and it happened
organically. Now, our focus is on the community
and providing the space for artists and other
disciplines to meet and collaborate," says Ho.

"We were just an idea until the opportunity

just do it," says Uzair Sawal, a member of the

which also serves as a listening room and a
rare music library. "It's been great so far. There's
a diverse community here but we all have the
common objective of creating things."
The public is welcome to drop by and explore
Zhongshan or participate in events hosted by
the tenants. A good starting point for exploration
is the Our ArtProjects gallery on the ground

KongsiKL
KongsiKL is an interdisciplinary space for
experimental work set in an old 900-squaremetre warehouse at Old Klang Road in Kuala
Lumpur. The warehouse, provided by property
developers Exsim Group, is managed by
KakiKongsi, a team comprising architects,
designers, artists, a dancer and a
landscape architect.
The space itself is a thing of beauty, an empty
cavernous hall with high ceilings and natural
light filtering in from the roof windows. Artists
are invited to do site-specific projects for the
unusual setting and the public can drop in to
witness the making of the work.
"At KongsiKL, we want to instil the spirit of

KongsiKL debuted last year with an interactive
dance performance called Dances in Ruins,
followed by a festival of site-specific and
participatory exhibitions and performances that
went on for three weekends in December. There
will be similar programmes throughout the year,
most of which will involve the community in

Worth a visit for its rooftop setting alone,
Moutou on Lorong Panggong in Chinatown was
founded by Wong Eng Leong, Wong Min Lik and
Ayam Fared as a grassroots response to the
established arts community. This open-air artistrun space doubles up as an urban edible garden,
which fits in nicely with the collective's objectives
of diversity and sustainability.
Moutou's artistic programme is as eclectic as
its atmosphere, featuring live gigs, audio-visual
exhibitions, film screenings and workshops,
usually imbued with a socially conscious theme.
"We wanted to create a place for free expression
and one that celebrates diversity," says Ayam,
who is a theatre practitioner and writer. Check

Pedal Power
Malaysians David Wu and Ving Lee are helping to
fight childhood cancer by pedalling through the
Seven Wonders of the World.
Words Kate Guest | Photography courtesy of Seven Wunders
They call themselves the Seven Wunders. “It
started out as a personal endeavour to cycle
around the world. To do something totally
outrageous at least once in my lifetime,” says
Wu. “My previous two endeavours focused on
helping flood victims and the less fortunate
repair their homes,” he adds.
In 2015, Wu walked 500 kilometres from the
capital Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bahru in northern
Kelantan state to raise money for flood victims,
and in 2016, cycled 4,000 kilometres from his
hometown in Kedah to Guangdong, China in
search of his ancestral village.
“This time round, I knew it was going to be the
last hurrah. I’m already 51 and the body can only
take that much. Given that it would likely be the
last crazy stunt I’d pull, I wanted it to be related
to cancer,” he says. Wu’s sister died from breast
cancer in 2014.
“I guess it all started when I watched her wither
away and (I was left) feeling helpless. Charity
was my way of dealing with that helplessness,
by getting up and doing something.” He chose
to focus on childhood cancer in honour of a
friend’s five-year-old who had the disease.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 57 | April 2018
Some people run marathons, others
shave their heads, but when it comes to
raising money for charity, few people rival
Malaysians David Wu and Ving Lee in going
the extra mile. They’re going an extra 25,000
miles or 40,000 kilometres, in fact, on an epic
two-year cycling journey to the Seven Modern
Wonders of the World. If Malaysians pledge to
donate just RM1.00 (USD0.26) each, they hope
to raise RM5 million (USD1.27 million) to help the
National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) fight
childhood cancer.

Wu, a businessman in the food and beverage
industry, and Ving, 35, a cameraman, left Kuala
Lumpur on 31 August last year. They ticked off
their first wonder, the Taj Mahal, in India and
from there cycled to Jordan via Pakistan and
Iran. As you read this, they have probably just
left the Lost City of Petra and are headed for
the Pyramids, an ancient rather than modern
wonder, but one they couldn’t resist including.
From there they’ll cycle to Europe to see the
Roman Colosseum, before flying from the U.K.
to Argentina for the South American leg, which
takes in Rio’s statue of Christ the Redeemer and
Peru’s Machu Picchu. Then it’s on to Chichén Itzá
in Mexico, and a flight to Japan before making
their way overland to the Great Wall of China.
At seven months in they’ve already faced
their share of problems. At the time of this
interview, they had just spent five days in the
Pakistani border town of Taftan, wrangling with
immigration officers to let them pass into Iran
after being accused of a one-day visa overstay.
“We knew it was a non-issue but cutting the
red tape was a nightmare, hence the prolonged
detention,” says Wu. “No one really knew what
they needed in order to process the approval.
We had to piece things together bit by bit as
language was a huge barrier. Being left in the
dark in a conflicted part of the country was quite
(hair-raising).” They were eventually allowed to
leave after intervention from Pakistani friends,
the Malaysian High Commission and perhaps
even, they suspect, the Pakistani prime minister.
Besides the expected language barriers and
cultural differences, their biggest challenge
is maintaining their mental strength. “From
homesickness, mechanical failures, frustrations,
feelings of fear, loneliness, worries, bureaucracy,
getting ripped off ... the mind needs to be
really strong to keep going,” admits Wu. Being
Malaysian, they faced one additional hardship:
finding food they like. “You could say having
familiar food (or the lack of) would be a major
hardship!” laughs Wu, who is a little fed up with
roti and dhal right now.
The pair also face the small issue of spending
hours on a bike every day. "Needless to say, it
is a huge physical challenge having to cycle an
average of 100 kilometres a day, but so far so
good. No injuries or excessively sore butts,” he
says, adding that there was no training at all prior
to the start of the journey. Wu is, of course, being
somewhat disingenuous about his fitness levels
given his past walking and cycling endeavours.

to photograph and document the journey and
ultimately to gain an amazing life experience.”
The pair sleep in the cheapest guest houses
they can find, or in the homes of friends and
supporters. With room to carry just 30-35
kilogrammes on their bikes, they have sleeping
bags but no tent. “Trust me, when one has
cycled for 10 hours in a day, you’ll sleep well,”
says Wu. “But often we need to fulfil other
obligations such as writing updates or articles,
responding to messages, planning for the next

Wu met Ving, who is more of a novice, on his
trip to China. “I was the cameraman for David
when he searched for his ancestral village during
the cycle to China and the experience left me in
awe,” he says. “I could feel the emotions that
David went through, and was inspired. When
I found out that he was going to attempt the
Seven Wonders, I asked to join him. He asked
me to think very carefully first, so I took about a
month to decide. I dropped everything and here I
am today. My motivation is to see the world and
have an adventure while I’m still relatively young,
I guess it all started when I watched her
wither away and (I was left) feeling helpless.
Charity was my way of dealing with that
helplessness, by getting up and doing something.

day, archiving photos and editing before we
sleep. There is plenty to do other than cycling.”
Yet as plentiful as the challenges are, they are
far outweighed by the rewards of experiencing
the world slowly and up close, whether it’s the
mystical pagodas of Myanmar or the smile of a
child running along beside them.
Wu says it’s the people they will remember the
most. “The kindness and hospitality have been
amazing. We have seen how a genuine smile,
a firm handshake, and a warm hug can open
doors and take you places. We also get to dispel
misconceptions about certain countries and their
people. And we delight in seeing how we have
been able to affect quite a number of folks back
home to initiate fundraising activities on their
own. That’s a huge bonus and we hope to infect
more in the future. We like this positive aspect of
society best.”
April 2018_Explore_Seven Wunders03.indd 59
When they are lucky enough to have Wi-Fi
connection, they check in with their support
network back home. Wu worries about his
81-year-old mother, who is still coming to terms
with her son’s journey, while Ving spends time
reassuring his anxious girlfriend. Besides food,
family and friends, Wu says he misses simple
things such as taking a drive on the weekend.
“Simply put, we miss the Malaysian way of life.
You can take the Malaysian out of Malaysia
but you can’t take Malaysia out of the
Malaysian, right?”
In the end, their journey is as life-changing for
Wu and Ving as it is for the children they will
help. “It has taught us to know our strengths
and weaknesses,” says Wu. “And that the world
isn’t really what you see on television. The
qualities of a good human being are very much
alive and well.” It certainly is. Wu and Ving prove
it every day. ■

ASIA’S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS

Bongkoch Satongun | CHEF’S CUT
Quiet Confidence
Chef Bongkoch Satongun garners praise for her modern take on
ancient Thai recipes.
Words Vincent Vichit-Vadakan | Photography courtesy of Paste
contacted Satongun several weeks earlier to
inform her that she had been picked as Asia's
Best Female Chef for 2018, but the wait for
the official announcement had been a nerveracking one nonetheless. “Is this for real?” she
kept asking. When the news was finally made
2
public however, her reaction was low-key and
understated, much like Paste itself.
Located in Ratchaprasong in central Bangkok,
near international hotels and popular shrines,
Paste is just minutes from the modest
Pratunam neighbourhood where Satongun
grew up. The worlds couldn't be more different.
“I cooked with my mum since I was very
young,” she recalls. “(She had) a street stall so I
helped her every day.” They served kanom jeen
(noodles made from lightly fermented rice) with
three or four home-cooked curries, clear soups,
hard-boiled eggs with five-spice, and a handful
of stir-fries, all from a cart on the street. “It was
a lot of prep and there were no machines. We
did everything ourselves,” including making the
curry pastes by hand.
Satongun went on to study English at university
and dreamed of cooking. She was working in a
restaurant when she met her husband. But she
was in an office job because she had not been
given a spot in the kitchen. “He already had his
Thai restaurant in Australia” in the Southern
Highlands, she remembers, on the road
between Sydney and Canberra. They quickly
realised that they shared the same goals and
visions for Thai food. Satongun could unlock
the secrets of source materials in Thai. When
Bailey has a vision of how to modernise dishes,
Satongun painstakingly perfects the ideas in
the kitchen. Within weeks she followed him to
Australia and they have formed an inseparable
team ever since. “We were two people with a
dream and we wanted to follow that dream,”
she says simply.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 61 | April 2018
“It's online,” said Bongkoch “Bee”
Satongun softly, looking at her phone. It's the
end of the lunch service at Paste, the elegant
restaurant that she and husband Chef Jason
Bailey have had since 2014. The organisers of
the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants awards had
“I'd never been outside of Thailand and I knew
nothing about Australia,” admits Satongun. But
her intuition told her it was the right thing to
do. Did the methodical, determined Satongun
ever doubt her impulsive choice? “No,” she
says categorically. “I never thought of giving
up. Or that I had made a mistake.” She learned
about the rigours of working in a commercial

contemporary ingredients and presentations.

Yet recognition did not come straightaway and
the restaurant's website still brags that it is one of
Bangkok's best-kept secrets. These days it is much
harder for Paste to make that claim. The restaurant
was awarded one Michelin star in Bangkok's first
Michelin guide last year, just one of the 14 restaurants
to make the cut. Satongun was named Asia's
Best Female Chef. And at the star-studded awards
ceremony in Macau in March, the restaurant entered
the list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants.
The exposure was hard on the staff, and the chefs,
at least initially. “Customers come in with more
expectations. There's more pressure,” laughs
Satongun, but she claims that the awards do not
make a difference. “I have to keep working!” ■

After winning accolades Down Under, including a
prize for Best Thai Restaurant in Australia for their
restaurant Classic Thai Cravings, Satongun was ready
to bring her food home. After eight years in Australia,
Satongun and Bailey moved back to Thailand and
opened the original Paste in 2012. But in 2014, the
opportunity to open in a more refined setting arose,
and they took the challenge. They brought some of
their favourite recipes like yum tawai and worked on
new ones like their aromatic massaman lamb with
raw durian topped with dried coconut apple. They
sourced old recipes from cookery books and recipe
collections and reworked them, like their refreshing
watermelon salad with salmon froth and salmon
eggs, now one of the most talked-about — and most
popular — dishes on the menu.
3. Boil coconut milk, then quickly blanch vegetables, one
at a time. Start with snake beans, then set aside.
Do the same with morning glory, banana flowers and
bean sprouts.
4. Put the shredded chicken and all the vegetables
except the rose apple in a mixing bowl, then add half
of the sauce and gently mix. Put the other half of the
sauce on the plate. Pile the salad from the bowl on top,
then add the rose apple and garnish with shallots and
sesame seeds.

community’s commitment to uphold values embodied
by their religion in their daily lives.

Lokasi yang merupakan tempat ibadah terbesar
bagi penganut agama Sikh di Asia Tenggara ini
turut menawarkan ketenangan berpanjangan
sepanjang tahun.
MALAYSIA VAISAKHI FESTIVAL 2017
Apabila tiba 14 April setiap tahun, suasana di
kuil tersebut akan berubah menjadi sebuah
karnival meriah yang menyaksikan penganjuran
perayaan Vaisakhi di gurdwara itu. Vaisakhi
merupakan acara paling penting bagi penganut
Sikh. Penganut-penganutnya tampil serba
indah – kaum lelaki hadir memakai kurta
dan serban manakala golongan wanita pula
memakai salwar-kameez. Ribuan penganutnya
akan membanjiri karnival tersebut semata-mata
untuk mengunjungi gerai-gerai makanannya.
Mereka juga ingin menghadiri sesi penceritaan
bermuzik atau kirtan yang dipersembahkan oleh
sekumpulan artis popular yang diterbangkan
khas oleh pihak penganjur.

Menariknya, salah satu cara terbaik untuk
menghayati semangat Vaisakhi adalah dengan
menyertai acara langar. Langar bermaksud
dapur kegunaan bersama di dalam sebuah
gurdwara. Juga merujuk kepada makanan
berasaskan sayur-sayuran, acara langar
disediakan oleh para sukarelawan dan disajikan
kepada semua tetamu dari pelbagai latar
belakang, budaya dan agama. Semua peserta
akan duduk bersila di atas lantai bersebelahan
satu sama lain untuk menikmati sajian. Langar
biasanya disajikan tiga kali sehari sepanjang
tahun. Namun, pada hari perayaan, bekalan
makanan akan terus disajikan sehingga 12

pengunjung yang meningkat.

becomes carnival-like as the gurdwara (place
of worship) plays host to Vaisakhi, the most

One of the most meaningful ways to
experience the spirit of Vaisakhi is to take
part in langar. The term for a communal
kitchen in a gurdwara, langar refers to free
vegetarian food prepared by volunteers and
served to anyone who walks in, regardless
of their faith or background. Everyone sits
side by side, often on the floor, to eat. All year
round, langar is served three times a day but
during Vaisakhi, as many as 12 meals are
served round the clock to cater to the spike in
visitor numbers.
“As long as prayers and performances are
going on, there will be meals. We don’t want
anyone who walks into our grounds to go
hungry,” says Amandeep Singh, Gurdwara
Tatt Khalsa’s manager. “The idea behind it is
that everyone is equal in the eyes of a Sikh.”
At the heart of this custom is seva, a
philosophy that describes selfless service
and action motivated by pure intentions.

harvest celebration in Punjab, the rice-bowl

Sambutan perayaan Vaisakhi adalah kemuncak
sebuah warisan yang telah diturunkan sejak
berabad-abad lamanya. Sejak penubuhan agama
ini pada tahun 1469, Vaisakhi disambut bagi
memastikan semua orang tanpa mengira bangsa,

tidak mahu tetamu berlapar,” kongsi pengurus
Gurdwara Tatt Khalsa, Amandeep Singh.
Tambahnya lagi: “Bagi seorang penganut Sikh,
amalan ini membawa maksud ‘semua orang
adalah sama dan setaraf.”
Adat tradisi ini mendukung falsafah seva
yang menitik beratkan semangat tidak
mementingkan diri dan bertindak mengikut niat
yang murni. Pada asalnya, perayaan Vaisakhi
merupakan sambutan kesyukuran selepas
musim menuai di Punjab yang merupakan
negeri pengeluar beras di India. Namun,
perayaan tersebut kemudiannya diberi nafas
baharu pada 1699 apabila sami Sikh yang ke-10,
Guru Gobind Singh menubuhkan Khalsa Panth
(sebuah komuniti Sikh yang komited) bagi
melindungi penganut-penganutnya daripada
ancaman kesengsaraan dan kezaliman.
Bermula dari hari ini, nama penganut lelaki
perlu ditambah dengan gelaran ‘Singh’
yang bermaksud singa manakala penganut
perempuan pula mendapat tambahan nama
‘Kaur’ yang bererti puteri.

region of India, the festival took on an added
dimension in 1699 when the tenth guru –
Guru Gobind Singh – established the Khalsa
Panth (community of committed Sikhs) to
protect the vulnerable against tyranny and
oppression. From this day onwards, the title
of Singh (which means Lion) was affixed to
the name of a male Sikh and Kaur (Princess)
to that of a female.
At Vaisakhi each year, those ready to join
the Khalsa are baptised. The word ‘Khalsa’
means pure, and to join, Sikhs must undergo
an initiation known as the Amrit ceremony.
Baptised Sikhs commit to not removing or
cutting any form of bodily hair, to abstain
from using alcohol, tobacco or other
intoxicants, adopting a vegetarian lifestyle
and not committing adultery. “Vaisakhi celebrates the culmination of a
centuries-long journey, from the foundation
of the faith in 1469, to ensure equality of all
people — regardless of race, gender, faith,
nationality, or any other identity,” says
Amandeep.
Celebrated on a grand scale by over 25
million Sikhs around the world, Vaisakhi
preparations typically start days ahead of
the actual festival day. The Akhand Paath,

a recital of the 1,430-page Sikh holy scripture,
is carried out to signify the start of the
celebration. On the actual day, the new
Nishan Sahib or flag ensign of the Khalsa is
hoisted at every gurdwara.
In towns with large Sikh communities,
colourful processions called nagar kirtan
make their way through streets accompanied
by recitals of religious hymns. Since 2015, the
Malaysian Punjabi Chamber of Commerce
and Industries has collaborated with the
Ministry of Tourism and Culture to stage
My Vaisakhi Fest, a grand showcase of Sikh
culture that includes traditional musical and
martial arts performances, at the Malaysia
Tourism Centre. This year, the event will be
held on 28 April.

Ultimately, Vaisakhi epitomises what religion
is meant to do: bring harmony amongst all
groups of people. “In the spirit of Vaisakhi,
I invite you all to visit a local gurdwara, ask
questions, and experience langar first-hand,”
says Amandeep. “We hope that this Vaisakhi
will open up the doors for a future filled with
more harmony and understanding.”

Menurut Amandeep: “Sambutan perayaan
Vaisakhi adalah kemuncak sebuah warisan yang

Sejak penubuhan agama ini pada tahun 1469,
Vaiksakhi disambut bagi memastikan semua
orang tanpa mengira bangsa, agama, jantina,

Disambut secara besar-besaran di serata dunia
oleh lebih 25 juta penganut Sikh, persediaan
untuk perayaan Vaisakhi lazimnya bermula
beberapa hari lebih awal sebelum perayaan
sebenar berlangsung. Persembahan Akhand
Paath atau bacaan kitab suci Sikh setebal 1,430
halaman akan dijalankan sebagai petanda
bermulanya perayaan tersebut. Pada hari
perayaan, satu bendera Khalsa baharu atau
Nishan Sahib akan dikibarkan di setiap gurdwara.

Di kawasan yang padat dengan masyarakat
Sikh, kemeriahan perarakan berwarna-warni
atau nagar kirtan akan dilihat di sepanjang
jalan sambil disertai dendangan lagu-lagu
pemujaan Tuhan. Sejak 2015, Dewan Perniagaan
dan Perindustrian Punjabi Malaysia telah
bekerjasama dengan Kementerian Pelancongan
dan Kebudayaan untuk menganjurkan My

mengetengahkan budaya masyarakat Sikh ini
merangkumi pelbagai persembahan muzikal
tradisional dan seni mempertahankan diri dan
bertempat di Pusat Pelancongan Malaysia. Pesta
My Vaisakhi Fest pada tahun ini akan diadakan
pada 28 April.
Pendek kata, perayaan Vaisakhi menjadi
lambang kemurniaan sebuah agama dengan
mewujudkan keharmonian sesama manusia.
“Seiring dengan semangat perayaan Vaisakhi,
saya ingin menjemput semua orang untuk
mengunjungi gurdwara terdekat bagi
bertanyakan soalan dan merasai sendiri
pengalaman menyertai langar,” ujar Amandeep.
Sambungnya lagi: “Kami berharap Vaisakhi kali
ini dapat membuka ruang yang lebih luas untuk
membina keharmonian dan persefahaman
masyarakat di masa depan.”

Malaysian Icon | Tan Sri Jins Shamsuddin
National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS)
The Filmmaker
Jins Shamsuddin was a leading man in Malay cinema,
known for his sharp looks and on-screen charisma.
Words Siva Sithraputhran
“I had signed a contract for the film and because
of that, I lost my place (to study) in England,” he
added. The movie, Keadilan Illahi, was the start
of a Jins’ long career in Malay cinema, spanning
over 50 years.
Soon after his debut, Jins caught the attention of
the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee, arguably the biggest
star Malay cinema has ever seen. The very
next year, in 1957, Jins played the leading role
in Pancha Delima, a film directed by P. Ramlee.
And with that, Jins became a fixture in Malayan
cinema, with notable leading roles in popular
films such as Sarjan Hassan and Si Tanggang.
National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS)
The year was 1956. The young stand-in’s
performance in the play impressed a talent
scout so much that he was offered a role in a
movie. But a workers’ strike delayed filming,
upending his plans of study. “Instead of shooting
for 45 days (as had been planned), we took nine
months to complete the film,” Jins said in an
interview in The Star daily in March 2008.
National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS)
Tan Sri Jins Shamsuddin hadn’t planned on
a career in cinema. He had set his sights on an
engineering degree in the U.K., but a chance role
in a play changed that.
Heartthrob
Jins’ own aspirations began to grow at the same
time. The actor became interested in directing
just as the era of colour films was dawning. He
debuted as director and lead actor in Bukan
Salah Ibu Mengandong in 1969. The movie was
a success and notably, starred screen legend P.
Ramlee in a supporting role. The very next year,
Jins directed Dibelakang Tabir before setting out
for the London Film School for a qualification in
Motion Picture Technology.
April 2018_Malaysian Icon_Jins Shamsuddin.indd 79
Through 1977 to 1985, Jins continued to develop
his craft, directing six movies and writing
screenplays. His Esok series of movies drew in
eager crowds and paved the way for a clutch
of new actors, including Azean Irdawaty and
Fauziah Ahmad Daud.
Bukit Kepong, perhaps his best work, came in
1981. It was a big-budget production about a
real-life incident in 1950, depicting the siege
of an isolated police station by communist
insurgents. The policemen emerged victors,
showing courage under tremendous pressure.
The movie was widely praised and won seven
awards at the 3rd Malaysia Film Festival in 1982,
including for Best Film. Jins directed, produced
and played the leading role in Bukit Kepong.
His later works included cameos in movies
outside the world of Malay cinema. Jins worked
well into his seventies and was known for his
dedication. Jins was appointed a member of
Jabatan Kebudayaan
dan Kesenian Negara
Jins’ reputation as a heartthrob was cemented
when he portrayed the sharply dressed, sharpfeatured Jefri Zain, a spy character in a series of
three films in the mid-1960s. The films – Gerak
Kilat, Bayangan Ajal and Jurang Bahaya, came
in quick succession and underscored Jins’ boxoffice bankability. The inevitable comparisons to
James Bond followed, but Jins was more than
just the Malay version of the fictional spy. He
became a symbol for the aspirations of
Malay cinema.
the Dewan Negara, the upper house of the
Malaysian parliament, in 2004. It was a first for
an actor in the country. He served two terms as a
senator, until 2011.
His love for learning continued throughout his
life. He earned a Doctorate in Philosophy from
Universiti Utara Malaysia in 2010. Jins was born
Mohamed Zain bin Shamsuddin in 1935 in the
northern Malaysian town of Taiping. He died in
2017 at the age of 81. ■

For Today’s Taste
Classic Sophistication
The CK Calvin Klein Spring 2018 collection for both men and women is
timeless, bold and subversive. While retro fabrics, cuts and lines hark back

hand, surprises with contemporary cuts and styles that

NO TO DRUGS
As part of efforts to champion a drug-free workplace, Malaysia Airlines has
enlisted the help of the National Anti-Drugs Agency to provide the necessary
expertise, manpower and technical requirements to conduct awareness
programmes, including random drug tests on employees. Chief Executive
Officer Izham Ismail said the airline is committed to upkeeping the highest
standards of safety throughout the organisation, and ensuring all employees

any individual at the workplace,” he added. The airline will also enhance the
visibility of the policy through LED screen displays in its premises to remind
staff of the importance of being drug-free.

WORKING TOGETHER
Gotong-royong is a Malaysian term for an event
where members of a community come together
to achieve a common goal, such as cleaning up
a neighbourhood or beautifying a common area.
Embracing this communal spirit, 60 Malaysia
Airlines management and staff members last
month volunteered for a gotong-royong to
clean 18 check-in counters at Row B, Level 5
of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The
activity involved scraping off old stickers, as
well as wiping and clearing the area of dust
and trash. The aim was to ensure that counters
are clean and presentable to customers for a
positive travel experience on ground, in addition
to providing front-line staff with a comfortable
work space. Staff volunteers from MASwings
also conducted their own cleaning activities at
check-in counters in Kuching, Miri and Bintulu,
as well as in Sibu, Labuan, Sandakan and Tawau
in east Malaysia.

Safety + service info
Cabin Luggage handling
Passenger and crew safety onboard our flights is our
highest priority. In compliance with the airline’s policy
and in observing Occupational, Safety and Health
Regulations requirements, cabin crew are no longer
required to stow passengers’ hand luggages into the
overhead stowage compartment. This is to minimise
occupational hazard and ergonomic risks faced by
cabin crew in the aircraft. Cabin crew on duty will,
however, assist passengers travelling with infants,
young passengers travelling alone, the elderly, and
passengers with reduced mobility. Passengers who
are fit and in good health must carry, stow and secure
their own hand luggages on board. Hand luggage
exceeding the 7kg weight limit is required to be
checked in before boarding.
Portable Electronic Devices (PED)
For safety reasons and in line with the Department of
Civil Aviation guidelines, mobile phones and all PEDs
must be switched off once aircraft doors are closed.
Whilst cruising, devices placed in flight mode may be
used. The devices must again be switched off during the
approach for landing until the aircraft is parked at the
terminal building. Devices transmitting strong signals
must remain switched off throughout the flight, until
disembarkation. The Captain may prohibit the use of
devices that can interfere with the aircraft’s system.
Lithium batteries
Lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries for
portable electronic devices (PEDs), including medical
devices must not exceed 2g for lithium metal batteries
and 100Wh for lithium ion batteries. All spare batteries,
including lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries,
for PEDs must be carried in passengers’ carry-on
baggage only. These batteries must be individually
protected to prevent short circuits. For PEDs containing
non-spillable batteries, they must be 12V or less or
100Wh or less. A maximum of two spare batteries
may be carried. These batteries must be individually
protected to prevent short circuits.
Electronic cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes must be carried on one’s person
or in carry-on baggage only. Recharging of the device

Bil Musa’s Young
Adults is playing
onboard this month.
We spoke to the
singer-songwriter
about the inspiration
behind the album
and why it is about
growing up.
How did you get into singing and
songwriting?
goingplacesmagazine.com | 92 | April 2018
Ever since I started playing the
piano, I always wrote songs. So,
songwriting was something that
I've always done, it’s just that I did
not write down or record any of
my songs until I was much older.
Singing is also something I only
realised I was into at the end of
secondary school. I tried doing
covers and mash-ups for friends
and they sort of encouraged me to
write and sing more. Who are your musical influences?
I'm very much into songs that evoke
a lot of emotions in a listener. So I
would say Adele, Sam Smith, Lana
Del Rey and Jhene Aiko. At the
same time, I also like songs that
are cool and fun or have a lot of
character. I'm very into Dua Lipa's
work right now. What was the inspiration behind
the album, Young Adults?
Young Adults is the perfect
example of "art imitates life". It's
inspired by young adults – myself,
my friends, cousins around my
age, my peers, the people I work
with – everyone I surround myself
with and their struggles with
commitment, relationships, money,
responsibilities, and transitioning
into an adult. It can get really tough
and sometimes you feel like you
can't talk to anyone about it but
when you write songs about it, it
really helps as a form of selfexpression. MEMORIES

You’ve often been compared to
Yuna. How do you feel about that?
I'll take it as a positive thing to be
compared to someone who has
made a name for herself, not only
in Malaysia but overseas as well,
especially despite having to battle
so many stigmas. I listened to her
songs when I was in school and I
thought she was great. I still do. Aside from your music career, you
also juggle other jobs. How do you
balance between the two?
This is a question I struggle to
answer! Most of the time, my head
is just above the water but I'm
surviving. It gets overwhelming
at times, considering I still have
to spend time with my family and
friends, maintain a social life and
try to keep fit in the middle of it all.
It's mostly a mental game, and to
be honest, I like being busy. People
who know me well will know this
because I'm a restless person. I
just have to keep my focus and
try my best to be on top of things.
InsyaAllah, it will all be worth it!
The Time is Now – Craig David
The Time Is Now is Craig David’s seventh
studio album and features an array of guest
appearances by the likes of JP Cooper, Bastille
and AJ Tracey. The album contains notably
less U.K. garage than its predecessor and
instead features trendy and contemporary
sounds from the charts. Of this album, David
says, “This is authentic me, doing what I love,
just like I did when I was an unknown artist.”
