The Benefits of Investing in a Timeshare

Timeshares get a bad rap, mainly because of misconceptions and misunderstandings. While there have been some shady business practices, such as aggressive sales tactics, by unethical people, this is not the norm in the timeshare industry. The truth is, timeshares can be a great investment that provides many benefits, which are discussed below.

More Affordable
Since you are sharing the home with others, you get access to an expensive property at a more affordable price. This opens up a whole new world of options when it comes to what properties you can afford. What’s even more is that you don’t have to worry, or foot the entire bill, for year round maintenance of the property. Furthermore, a vacation home owned solely by you will be left vacant for a good portion of the year. And most experts recommend against leaving a home vacant for too long of a period.

Flexibility
As anyone who has ever booked a vacation before knows, it can be difficult trying to find your desired timeframe, especially during popular vacation times. With a timeshare, you know ahead of time which blocks in the calendar are yours. However, you can utilize timeshare exchanges to trade for a different time period, or even a different property.

Potential Income Maker
In some instances, you may be able to rent out the block of time set aside for you, thus earning money on your timeshare investment. You can use this money how you see fit. Keep in mind, however, that you will need to make sure your timeshare agreement allows renting your time blocks.

Sharing is Caring
One of the benefits of having a timeshare is that you can let, if your arrangement allows it, your family and friends use the property during your time block. Another option is offering your unused blocks to a charity auction.

Consideration
Before you rush into anything, make sure to know all the fine print and know all that goes along with the investment, such as timeshare termination. Knowing this information will help protect yourself against any surprises with your investment. Furthermore, before signing any contract, make sure to research the company you will be working with. Read reviews written by past and present clients. This will help ensure you’re working with a trustworthy company.

In the spirit of caring and giving during Ramadan, Guardian Malaysia has launched a charity campaign to raise fundsfor two children’s homes.


Under the campaign, a joint effort with Reckitt Benckiser (M) Sdn Bhd, Guardian Malaysia will donate RM1 of every RM30 of Dettol products sold at its stores to the two homes -
Pertubuhan Kebajikan & Pendidikan Cahaya Bistari at Batu Caves, Selangor, and
Asrama Darul Falah (ASDAF) at Bukit Persekutuan, Kuala Lumpur.


“With the support of our customers, we aim to raise at least RM20,000 from the Kempen Beli & Derma, so that each home will receive RM10,000 which they can use to prepare for the Aidilfitri celebrations at the end of Ramadan or to pay for school fees and daily essentials,” said Ms Christina Low, Marketing Director of Guardian Malaysia.

Speaking at a special iftar or the breaking of fast for 100 children and care-takers from the homes, Christina said: “We all know Ramadan is a holy month where Muslims practice patience and tolerance through fasting. It is a time for forgiveness, and where doing kind deeds and helping the less fortunate are strongly encouraged.”


“It is in this spirit of Ramadan, that our team at Guardian Malaysia is delighted to be given the opportunity to join hands with Reckitt Benckiser to raise funds for the two homes which are providing care and shelter to nearly 100 children.”


“For our Muslim customers, this charity campaign enables them to share and give to the less fortunate when shopping for their festive and daily needs of essential items, such as hygiene-related products,” she added.


Marketing Director of Reckitt Benckiser, Malaysia and Singapore, Ms Tiffany Tang speaking at the same event, said: “By working with Guardian, we would reach out to the millions of customers who shop at Guardian stores throughout the country, and on-line.

Learning the Basics of a Time Honored Activity

Before video games and computers were invented, people created activities to keep themselves amused.  These games allowed people to have fun with friends and family members while also spending time in warm and sunny weather.

When you want to bring back the appeal and enjoyment of games that people decades ago played, you may want to learn more activities like horseshoes, the official cornhole game, and other pastimes that people used to indulge in before the advent of technology.  You can discover the rules, layout, and other details about it by going online now.


The Rules and Setup of Cornhole

The cornhole toss game may also be called bean bag toss, tailgate toss, baggo, or simply bags depending on where you live.  It is a popular game because it is simple for people of all ages to play and easy to win points in without being overly competitive.

To play the game, you have to set up the board on a flat surface.  The board itself comprises of several different holes, all of which are worth various points.  You determine the point value of each hole on the game board.

As its name implies, you toss the bean bags into the holes on the board.  You aim for the holes with the higher point values but can also make up your score by aiming for and hitting the holes with lesser points as well.  Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
check out the website by click on the link for detail, photo credit to customcorntoss.com


Making the Board and Bags

If you want to make your own cornhole toss game, it is important that you know the dimensions and layout of the board.  The website tells you how large the board must be.  You can use the measurements to cut out and put together a board that fits those requirements.

You can also use the information to make bean bags that you can use to play the game.  The bags should be light enough to throw yet weighted enough to ensure that they hit their targets.  The website tells you how to put the bags together.


Old-fashioned games can be the highlight of any outdoor picnic or gathering.  You do not need to rely on technology to keep everyone amused.  You can use games that people have enjoyed for decades.  The website tells you how to get started and what rules to follow when playing.

MĀORI BUSINESS LEADERS EXPLORE PARTNERSHIPS IN MALAYSIA

As this year marks the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between New Zealand and Malaysia, an entourage of 7 Maori business leaders from the food and beverage, dairy, seafood and tourism sectors are connecting with government and business leaders in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Singapore from 13-18 May 2017. On 15 May 2017, the congregation paid a visit to the Taste New Zealand Fair at Jaya Grocer, The Starling Mall and also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) introducing a new dairy product, Miraka!

New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner to Malaysia and Brunei, Mr Matt Ritchie, said: “Malaysia is one of our top 10 trading partners and the visit coincides with this year marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Malaysia. Our two countries have a history of friendly and constructive links and our relationship continues to grow. We have strong ties in trade, security and education, and we want to build on our strengths in areas like food and beverage which offers huge potential to consumers.” 


The Maori are very particular about culture and etiquette, often having cultural dances,  Te Pūoro Māori (meaning: Maori music), a cultural performance that integrates dance, poetry and song (Waiata).


“Māori place great importance on relationships. The Māori business leaders visiting Malaysia are seeking to forge enduring partnerships and to reconnect and strengthen existing relationships with their Malaysian counterparts.” 


The Maori economy is estimated to be worth of $42 billion and contributes $11 billion to 
New Zealand GDP.

The Māori business and cultural mission kicked off with the Taste New Zealand Food Fair 
at Jaya Grocer, The Starling Mall on the morning of 15 May 2017. Taste New Zealand is a highly anticipated Food Fair featuring over 150 products including 30 new products from New Zealand – among some of the brands featured include The Collective Dairy, Whittaker’s, Griffin’s and Rockit Apple Snacks. There's current fair runs from 3 May to 21 May at all Jaya Grocer outlets. There's Shop & Win Contest, that will ends on 21 May 2017, if you haven't read click on the link to find out.

Linguists believe that the Malay and Maori language belong in the category of ‘Austronesian Languages’, having the common origin thousands of years ago. The Maori language shares similarities words with the Malay language. Examples as below :-


Maori
Malay
ika
ikan
tangi
nangis
taringa
telinga
rua
dua
rima
lima
rangit
langit
 It's good that we can learn each other language, I do find them similar, what do you think?

and Chemmy Tan. Miraka is New Zealand’s first Māori-owned dairy processor and it is a fast-growing operator in New Zealand's multi-billion dollar dairy-processing industry. The term ‘Miraka’ is Maori for “milk”. Eighty percent of its shareholders are whanau trusts and corporations. 


Earlier today, representatives from Fonterra attended the re-opening of Fonterra’s milk
powder manufacturing plant (Susumas). Fonterra is New Zealand’s largest investor in
Malaysia and is well known for its portfolio of consumer and food service brands such as
Anlene, Anmum, Anchor and Fernleaf.

As New Zealand’s largest company, and the world’s biggest dairy proccesser and 
exporter, Fonterra plays a big role in putting New Zealand on the map globally. 


Around 40% of the products Fonterra produces (more than 100 types) in Malaysia are
exported to 13 countries in South East Asia and the Middle East. The manufacturing 
sites in Susumas and Dairymas produce more than 46,000 metric tonnes of powdered 
and liquid dairy products each year, bringing high quality dairy nutrition to millions of Malaysians each day. 


The visit concludes with a cultural exchange between Māori and the indigenous Sabah
people in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.
