Ice Skating

My friend, Hari who is currently living in UK with her husband asked me about my ice-skating experience and choices of venues in London, which I honestly told her that I know nothing about. That is one thing that I regret not doing. There was even a skating rink so close to my school and sadly Sri and I didn’t even manage to step on it. Nothing can beat the excitement of feeling the icy cold wind sweeping you away, apart from the jingling laughter released from the cocoon of Christmas festive.

In Malaysia, it’s is now the suitable time of the year to rejoice in indoor ice-skating luxury. Head over to Sunway Pyramid’s ice-skating rink for some lessons. There are lessons for beginners that are conducted each morning from 8.30am to 11am.

The public can gain access to the rink from noon onwards. The rink measures 22.5m by 39m in size and can accommodate a total of 250 people at one go. So if you wish to cool down on a warm day, the rink is the place for you.

Lucky for KLites having the chance to adventure on the rink! What about Johorean, any luck at all? Not to worry about that, even though we have to wait for another nine years to see the dream coming true.

“Central Malaysian Properties Sdn Bhd (CMP) will develop Lido Boulevard, a RM2.7bil integrated waterfront city, in the Iskandar Development Region (IDR). Managing director Datuk Chan Tien Ghee said work on the project, located on a 49.37ha beachfront site, would start in March and was expected to be completed by 2016. The project, to be developed in phases, will stretch 2.4km along Lido Beach – from the now defunct Lot 1 shopping mall to the Harbour Master office. “Lido Boulevard will completely rehabilitate Lido Beach and give Johor Baru a facelift,” Chan said at the launch of the project by Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman yesterday.

“The flagship project by CMP, a company linked to Tan Sri Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, is a joint venture between CMP, the State Secretary and landowner Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor. Touted as the “Garden City of the South”, the project will include landscaped gardens, water fountains and park-like facilities. Chan said the project would be financed via shareholders’ funds and internal funding and the company would start sales early next year. The development will consist of four main components – luxury condominiums, waterfront office suites, a hotel and a shopping mall. There will be eight blocks of high-end condominiums of between 18 and 26 floors each, offering 914 units on a 1,052ha site.

“Another eight blocks of waterfront office suites of between six and eight floors each, a 296-room hotel-cum-service residences and a three-storey waterfront retail complex are also in the plan. Incorporated within the mall will be an international-sized ice skating rink and 32-lane bowling alley.

Johoreans, be patient for another nine years yeah!!!
