Setia Eco Cascadia

25 September, 2011 | Written by Patchay at 2:04 PM in , , ,

How would you like to have stunning waterfalls greet you by your front door every day?

With Setia Eco Cascadia, it is now a possibility.

A new eco concept by renowned developer S P Setia

The concept of Setia Eco Cascadia is simple, yet surprisingly unexplored. It is about implanting a world of eco-living into the heart of a city centre. As the name implies, Setia Eco Cascadia is an abundant green wonderland where cascading waterfalls are the key element, literally bringing a fresh of breath air to modern living.

A development where Mother Nature is a nurturing companion, an inspiring space where we can live, learn, work and play; not merely an inevitable victim of urbanisation. Here, the existing environment and natural ambience serve as a vibrant canvas for exploration, untouched by the destructive force that humankind is so willing to muster in its quest for progress.

The luxurious houses are dotted along the natural, cascading landscapes, each strategically located to provide an optimum view of the waterfalls and priceless privacy to the dwellers.

Designed with you and the environment in mind

The linear gardens of Setia Eco Cascadia are the one of main essences of this development. A rare commodity in townships elsewhere, this unique concept links the rear gardens of all residences into a network of dazzling green park connectors. These connectors serve as a refreshing walkway where resident are able to take a quiet, tranquil walk from their back gardens through natural greenery all the way to the fully-equipped communal clubhouse and waterfall locales. This green network also effectively separates the pedestrian pathways from the vehicular circulation, ensuring both a safe environment for those who prefer to travel on foot and a smooth, enjoyable ride for vehicles.

Another signature feature of Setia Eco Cascadia is the Bioswale, a unique ecologically-attuned facility that filters rainwater before discharging it into the drainage system. It also doubles up as an attractive aesthetic monument that flows along the central green landscape towards the main waterfall park.

Setia Eco Cascadia is actively seeking ways to give back to Mother Nature. The entire development is built on natural terrains that are left uncompromised. Trees and fauna are well-preserved and cultivated. Here, the existing environment and natural ambience serve as a vibrant canvas for exploration, untouched by the destructive force that humankind is so willing to muster in its quest for progress. The cascading landscapes of Setia Eco Cascadia, combined with the advanced eco-villas imbued with smart architecture that provides more comfort and pleasure even as it minimises usage of the earth's resources, bring to life a sensuous, inspiring living experience that is an unabashed tribute to nature.

Intricate homes within a prime location

To complement the luxurious and green living environment is a collection of modern and eco-centric homes. The Terrace Houses, Cluster Homes, Semi-Detached Houses and Bungalows are all fitted with eco-friendly features like floating roofs, sky gardens, outdoor gardens and more. These lavish enclaves of Setia Eco Cascadia also integrate brilliant architecture and clean, sleek design into its natural surroundings.

The Club House of Setia Eco Cascadia offers comprehensive world-class facilities for homeowners. With swimming pools, gymnasium and private lounge inside the club and outdoor facilities like pavilions, bridges, courtyards, outdoor gardens and many more, Setia Eco Cascadia is all ready to pamper and indulge even the most discerning dwellers.

To top it off, Setia Eco Cascadia is strategically located within a matured vicinity. The excellent infrastructures allow the development to enjoy easy accessibility to amenities like Jusco, Tesco and Carrefour hypermarkets, Sunway College, hospitals and more. Setia Eco Cascadia is also connected to the North-South Expressway (Exit 255C) and Tebrau Highway, offering superior convenience and traveling experience that even money cannot buy.

Setia Eco Cascadia truly encapsulates its promised experience of "Living in Nature's Miracle." Coupled with its alluring eco-villas that personify luxury, space and the best of personalised living, Setia Eco Cascadia is truly a paradise that forever redefines the concept of eco-living in Johor Bahru.

I remembered I only started driving at 18.

Tell us, how old will you allow your kids to drive?

16 August, 2011 | Written by Patchay at 12:49 AM in ,

Foxconn and Research In Motion have expressed interest to invest in Malaysia




Foxconn Technology Group, world famous for making iPhones and iPads for Apple Inc has been rumoured to have received an investment license to operate in Kulai, a town in the southern Malaysian state of Johor, according to news reports in Taiwan.


The Taiwanese company is the world's largest maker of electronic components including printed circuit boards. It is the largest exporter and largest private employer in Mainland China.



Meanwhile, Canada's Research In Motion Limited, the company behind BlackBerry smartphones are planning to invest in setting up its own manufacturing plant either in Penang, Malaysia or in Indonesia.


In the meantime, since July 2011, the company has begun its Malaysian production via a third party plant owned by Flextronics in Penang.


Singapore-headquartered Flextronics International is one of RIM's largest supplier partner. Flextronics has at least 6 plants in Malaysia.



Despite the gloomy global economy, Asia will lead growth with China, Indonesia and India leading other Asian trading nations.


Malaysia alone aims to achieve US$10 billion in foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows this year. If achieved, it will be the highest ever recorded topping last year's US$9.1 billion.

Starbucks Coffee Copycats

09 August, 2011 | Written by Patchay at 10:37 PM in ,

According to some bloggers, "Star Fucks Coffe" was spotted in the city of Liuzhou, Guangxi Province in the P.R. of China.





As you can see, the logo stated "Porn Queen". Is that a humor or insult?





This is really a true Chinese creation.



Bucks mean dollars, so by re-arranging the words, you actually mean "coffee that will bring you money."



And now this is the local version:





In the most rural highlands of Sarawak in Malaysian Borneo, there is actually a demand for Starbucks Coffee.


(Kopi means coffee in Malay/Indonesian)

United States-based engineering and architectural firm, AECOM, has been picked to carry out the River of Life (RoL) project costing about RM1 billion which includes the beautification of a 10.7km stretch of the Klang and Gombak River Corridor.


Once ready, the area will offer visitors nice views and feature amenities such as pedestrian and bicycle walkways, retail outlets, eateries and other attractions.

Malaysian pop diva Datuk Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin has been rumoured to be the new owner of the 20 million ringgit The Troika Penthouse.

The Troika won its most prestigious accolade - CNBC's The Best International High Rise Architecture, after being victorious in the 5-star Best High Rise Residential and 5-star Best Architectural 2008 categories at the CNBC Asia Pacific Property Awards.
