It is snowing now in i-City [more here]
i-City is in Shah Alam.
The very first snowfall in Southeast Asia ... and the snow is safe enough to eat.
Congratulations Ng Yen Yen
For bringing snow to Shah Alam
Tourism Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen recently said that innovative and attractive tourism products, such as the Snowalk@i-City would help attract more visitors to Malaysia, besides spurring domestic tourism.
"In the past, I used to tell foreigners that we, in Malaysia, can offer them anything except snow. But with Snowalk, we can say that we also have snow in Malaysia," she said.
Mesti lepas ni berdoyon doyon pelancong dari 3 benua datang ke Shah Alam [masuk atas visa pelancong, pelajar kemudian melencong].
Al-maklum, tak de masalah langsung bila mereka melawat Malaysia ... papan tanda jalan, makanan, bahasa, budaya dan serba serbinya SERUPA dengan tempat asal mereka malah lebih baik lagi.
Well, would mats and minahs salleh visit Malaysia for SNOW?
Lagipun orang putih ni geli geleman ngan tandas kat Malaysia.
Tapi deme yang dari 3 benua ni ... alah bisa tegal biasa.
Masa Shah Alam mula dibangunkan dulu, ada dengar cerita SUltan Selangor tidak mahu Shah Alam jadi another KL.
Ni apa cerita lak ni?
i-City''s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Eu Hong Chew, said the opening of Snowalk reinforced i-City''s position as an innovative company and knowledge hub.
"As a knowledge hub, our focus is on getting innovative companies to come to i-City. For this reason, when we wanted to develop tourist attractions, it was natural to focus on innovation to provide the competitive edge."
When i-City was launched about six years ago, it was planned as a digital city. It was an innovative idea at that juncture and even today, i-City is regarded by Multimedia Development Corporate (MDeC) as the benchmark for future cyber centres in the country.
Eu added that i-City continued innovating when it launched its first tourist attraction, The City of Digital Lights, in December 2009.
