U Mobile and WeChat Introduces Unlimited Data For Chinese Tourists

U Mobile today announced a partnership with WeChat to launch the U Mobile WeChat Go SIM. This new prepaid SIM will offer Chinese tourists unlimited data to enjoy social messaging on the WeChat app and free Lingcod TV subscription whilst having unlimited data to stream over 100,000 hours of high-definition movies, documentaries, and educational content out of China.

The new U Mobile WeChat Go SIM will be the only WeChat Go cobranded prepaid SIM in the country and it is packed with other value-added services including 1GB of free roaming data for Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia and 60 minutes’ worth of IDD calls to China or calls made in Malaysia.

The launch of U Mobile WeChat Go SIM is very timely as the Malaysian Tourism and Culture Ministry is targeting to attract eight million Chinese tourists by 2020. With more and more tourists from China visiting Malaysia, the U Mobile prepaid WeChat Go SIM is well positioned to meet all their connectivity demands.

“With the new U Mobile WeChat Go SIM, the whole WeChat ecosystem goes beyond just social messaging. Together with WeChat, we will work on packing even more benefits like mobile commerce into the WeChat Go SIM not just for Chinese tourists but for anyone who is a user of WeChat,” said Jasmine Lee, Chief Marketing Officer, U Mobile.

U Mobile WeChat Go SIM will be available from 6 December 2017, and Chinese tourists may opt to purchase the prepaid SIM pack from Sunway Media retailers in China prior to travelling. The SIM card will also be available at 138 U Mobile outlets in Malaysia as well as the various international airports in the country such as KLIA and KLIA 2.

玻重振旺吉辇经济 申请恢复自由通行政策

玻重振旺吉辇经济 申请恢复自由通行政策

玻璃市州务大臣拿督斯里阿兹兰说,州政府已发函向内政部申请重新恢复旺吉辇关卡的自由通行政策,不过还未接获官方回应。


他说,玻州政府渴望联邦政府考虑此建议,因为能够重振旺吉辇的经济发展,就如位于马泰边境的玻州巴东勿刹。


他表示,其实玻州政府早前已经为旺吉辇经济发展出谋划策,不过因发生人口贩卖事件而被迫搁置。


废除政策后经济受创


他说,当联邦政府之后废除自由通行政策,位于大马边的旺吉辇市集的经济大大受创,当地居民也失去做生意的机会。


阿兹兰于周五早出席玻州一所清真寺的活动后,在记者会上这么说。


他补充,玻州政府已对防范关卡罪案的发生提出数个建议。


玻璃市拉惹端姑赛西拉祖丁殿下于昨日在双弄港口国际综合性码头动土礼御词时,也要求联邦政府重新考虑恢复关卡自由通行政策,重整当地旅游业。


于1993年12月实行的自由通行政策,每周末到来旺吉辇旅游的游客,可在距离马泰关卡一公里范围,自由通行。后中央政府以边境安全为由,2015年4月1日起,废除旺吉辇关卡自由通行政策,我国所有公民及外国游客都需以边境准证及护照出入旺吉辇关卡。

Get weather updates through RakanMET

Get weather updates through RakanMET



Whichever part of Malaysia you are in, the RakanMET app allows you to share information and updates on the weather.

RakanMET aims to provide fast and accurate information to the public to ensure that they are better prepared to face extreme weather conditions.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau said the app was developed by his ministry (Mosti) through the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

“Users can report weather-related incidents in their areas by uploading information onto the app.

“This is done to prevent irresponsible parties from uploading fake information on the app,” he said.

RakanMET is the second app to be developed by Mosti after myCuaca, which was launched in 2015 to provide the public with the latest weather information.

RakanMET was officially launched at the Sabah Weather and Earthquake Operations Centre on Friday, in conjunction with World Meteorological Day.

MetMalaysia director-general Alui Bahari was also present at the event to sign a memorandum of understanding with Universiti Putra Malaysia to mark their collaboration in the field of meteorological science.

交怡机场增建登机桥 首阶段工程后落实

交怡机场增建登机桥 首阶段工程后落实

针对吉打浮罗交怡国际机场增建登机桥计划,交通部长拿督斯里廖中莱指出,这是属于第二阶段提升计划,必须待第一阶段完成后才能进一步落实,以吸引更多的国际航空公司飞进浮罗交怡。

他说,目前浮罗交怡国际机场正进行第一阶段的扩建工程包括停车场及航站楼,同时也必须确保航班不受扩建工程的影响,一旦完成第一阶段扩建工程后,就会进入第二阶段的增建空桥的工程。

他说,第一阶段的工程耗资8000万令吉,至于第二阶段的增建空桥工程的费用,有关当局还在估计耗资数目。

“为了吸引更多的国际航空特别是来自中东的航空公司飞进浮罗交怡,增建空桥是有必要以提升游客量到来浮罗交怡。”

他说,第2阶段增建空桥工程已进入测绘阶段,之后,有关当局必须估计耗资费用才能正式动土开工增建。

他是于周日到访米都会见马华6个投票站服务中心(PDM)及马华亚罗士打区会竞选委员会成员后,在记者上如此表示。

此外,廖中莱说,除了浮罗交怡国际机场,大马机场控股(MAHB)也计划在亚罗士打苏丹阿都哈林机场进行提升航站楼,该机场虽然已有完善的设备包括有良好跑道,但是必须再加强机场的操作来应付往后的航班成长率。

他说,同时交通部会与其他国家的航空公司商讨未来可以考虑亚罗士打机场作为本地市场的焦点机场。他也说,最为重要的是这座机场的操作必须再加强来应付更多往返吉隆坡国际机场的直飞航班和转机航班。
