A Trip to Malaysia Travelling is a sense of adventure that excites people, and also is a big chance for us to learn about other cultures and the way people live their lives. While many tourists travel to France, England or some famous countries in Europe, fewer travel to a small country in Asia. As someone who loves to explore and enjoy new things, 3 years ago in the summer, my boyfriend and I decided to backpack to Malaysia. It was a fantastic trip and an amazing experience for us that you should definitely try it. In this country, there are three destinations that travelers should not miss: the Petronas Twin Towers, Golden Triangle area, and The Genting Highland Park. When we arrived into Kuala Lumpur, we headed straight to the Petronas Twin Towers, which are also known as the world’s tallest tower. They are an impressive icon of the capital of Malaysia that are visible from about everywhere in the city, and dominate the night sky. The Petronas Twin Towers are 1,483 feet tall, have 88 stories, and were completed in 1998. The architecture was very magnificent from the outside, especially at night, they look like ice sculptures. The most attractive architecture of the tower is that at the 41st and 42nd level, there is a skybridge connecting the two towers. The bridge is 170 meters above the ground, 58 meters long and weighs 750 tons. My boyfriend and I drove the high-speed lift that zooms up to the skybridge on the 41st floor; we walked across the skybridge to take some pictures and we really enjoyed the guided tour of the skybridge. After that, we got taken up to the Observation Desk on the 86th floor, which we could see the beautiful and spectacular night views of Kuala Lumpur city when all the lights were turned on. During the evening, there is a fountain show on the lake. The lake area is surrounded by walkways and gardens. A little further away is…...

In April 1989, however, section 312 of Act 727 of the Penal Code was amended substantially to permit abortion if a medical practitioner was of the opinion, formed in good faith, that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk to the life of the pregnant woman, or injury to the mental or physical health of the pregnant woman, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated. The change appears to reflect to some degree the view of Malaysia’s population. A national fertility and family survey found that 71 per cent of the women surveyed endorsed abortion on the grounds of rape or incest;......

All countries honour their respective independence day, celebrating it as a national holiday. Thus, on the 31 August every year, it is marked as the Malaysian Independence Day. However, there are lot differences of celebrating the Independence Day on 31 August and today in terms of spirit and technology. The differences of celebrating the Independence Day on 31 August 1957 and today is the spirit of independence. The new generations do not know how to appreciate the freedom that they have today. For instance, people nowadays do not understand the real meaning of the historic day. In addition, it can be seen that many teenagers nowadays prefer to have a party to celebrate the day. In contrast, people in the past had a strong spirit for independence. As a consequence, they really understood the real meaning of freedom because they fought for their country. In brief, people in the past appreciated the real meaning of freedom and their patriotism is stronger than people today. Next, people today use a different technology to celebrate the Independence Day compared to the past. . Nowadays, technology helps people to realize the real meaning of freedom. On the other hand, people today use technology like radio and internet to raise the spirit of patriotism among them. However, people in 1957 do not have the technology to show their appreciation on...

Once I saw what my mum and my son pulled, my paper got tossed over my shoulder. The challenge now were to pick from the two options trip to the Wallowa Mountains or the trip to the Oregon coast. We ponder on what the Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains offered in actives, accommodations, and weather in late March. We were down to trip to the Wallowa Mountains and the Oregon coast. As we looked at these two, we noticed these were just a few of the more common spring break trips. These two place Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains are still far from being a like each other. Then my family was curious about other things such as accommodations and the weather in late March. The weather in Oregon can be unpredictable in late March at the Oregon coast also at the Wallowa Mountains. The weather can be sunny one moment to down pour rain.

...As a net oil exporter and Southeast Asia's second largest energy producer behind Indonesia, Malaysia is the country most threatened by falling energy prices. In 2013, Malaysia exported the equivalent of 73 percent of its GDP, of which 22 percent came from exports of natural gas (9 percent), refined oil products (8 percent) and crude oil (5 percent). As of November 2014, Malaysian energy export revenues were marginally growing compared with the year before. Income from overseas crude sales rose 8.2 percent year-on-year, but revenue from natural gas and refined products exports grew by only 1.9 and 0.8 percent respectively. Although numbers are not in yet, revenues likely fell sharply in December and have continued to slide into January and February as benchmark oil prices dipped under $50 per barrel. Reduced export revenues will not be the only place Malaysia will feel the effects of falling oil prices. In 2013, the latest year with full data available, oil-related income accounted for 29.5 percent of total government revenue, but only about 55 percent of that income came from taxes and export duties on domestic production. The remainder took the form of "dividends" from state-owned energy firm Petronas, which runs extensive international upstream and midstream operations in addition to its domestic functions, directly exposing it to fluctuations in global oil prices. On Dec. 2, Petronas announced it would reduce its total payments to the government by $11.8 billion in 2015...

...to reinvent the corporate enterprise, so as to efficiently meet emerging global competition. The world’s economies are tending towards market orientation. In market-oriented economies, companies are less protected by traditional and prescriptive legal rules and regulations. Malaysia is no exception and the shift to a full-disclosure regime, to be completed by the year 2001 is such an example. Hence there is the need for companies to be more efficient and well- managed than ever before to meet existing and anticipated world-wide competition. The role of directors then increases in importance. The role of the board in hiring the right management, compensating, monitoring, replacing and planning the succession of senior management is crucial, as management undertakes the key responsibility for the enterprise’s efficiency and competitiveness. The role of the Code is to guide boards by clarifying their responsibilities, and providing prescriptions strengthening the control exercised by boards over their companies. 1.9 In developing the Code we have been mindful of developments in other jurisdictions. We have endeavoured to keep the discussion at an international level. Standards developed for Malaysia must measure up to international thinking on this subject. 2 The Approach Under the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance 2.4 In this respect it is equally important that these prescriptions are accompanied by a rule requiring disclosure of the extent to which......

...vacations. On car journey I would like to talk about today was my visit to Mount WUYI which is located in Fujian province. Last winter vacation, my family and I decided to go to Hainan. Unfortunately, we were informed that Hainan was hit from typhoon 2 days before our departure. As the city repaired damaged, there were still powerful following storms threatening this region. Out of a choice, we canceled our trip. However, it was not often the case that my family and I could get time together to have a holiday trip. In order to fully enjoy our vacation as we planned, we changed our destination to WUYI city. Due to the sudden change, we failed to buy train tickets and had to drive there on our own. It turned out that visiting places like Mount WUYI is perfect for self-driving. It was estimated as a 3-hour driving so we rented a SUV and switched drivers on the way. Each of us were responsible for a part of the highway, and whenever we saw something fascinating, we just pulled over the car to have a closer look at it. I guess those are the merits of renting a car and going on a trip with family. Mount WUYI, a very popular scenic area in China is famous for the natural conservation of numerous ancient plant species and wildlife. The popular activities there include hiking and drifting. The first day we rode a raft down the streams. The raft we took was tied by bamboo, and there were two men using long poles to steer the craft down the water. When drifting smoothly on the......
