Sibu In The Blue Ocean - Part 15

Tan Kee Hian said there is certainly money to be made in the Grey (Silver) Market, but it takes thought.

Kee Hian's vision for Gerontology in Sibu is based on the following:

1. Sibu as a Centre of Excellence for Gerontology in Malaysia and the region.
2. Elderly can "live their life to the fullest".
3. Access to active ageing programmes and activities.
4. Credible experts, trained resources and well-equipped care centres.
5. Elderly-friendly homes and products based on universal design.
6. Barrier-free facilities and access in public areas.
7. High level of awareness of and respect for the needs of the elderly.

It is good to think of Rest Homes and Care Centres.

Think about the number of golden hearted nurses we have to train and the kind of facilities we need to provide. I believe this is a good way to go forward....

Also food catering can also be specialised - and I am sure there are many women who can go into this kind of business.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can also be an area we can look into....A special institute can be set up and special herb garden be initiated.

I am for a good bambusetum (like in MU Botanical Gardens ) and our tourists can come here to enjoy the beautiful scenery...

There should be a grand Blue Print for Blue Ocean...without fear and favour.

So many things can be done for Sibu...if people are given the chance.

Chang Yi, you are great at ideas. Come and share in MPI Forum website at forum.pilley.edu.my for the benefits of Sibu.

Yesterday I tried calling your handphone, but it failed to respond. Is it still working?

Chang Yi. I agree with Tony.
DO go in MPI forum website and share .
I did a response to 1 part of Tony's write-up on 'Sibu In the Blue Ocean' and later when I checked, it was missing. I must have done something not right. Will try again.
Keep going
Judy
