Participating in sports is about more than just staying in shape. It assists us in developing and enhancing our<br />

confidence levels. Furthermore, being physically active can protect us against ailments such as arthritis, heart disease,<br />

and diabetes. Golf is one of the recommended sports in this Covid-19 era, says our cover personality, KP Low. “Golf is a<br />

sport with natural social distancing measures as the course is spread out over hundreds of acres. Out of the four to five<br />

hours playing golf, probably more than 90 percent is spent at least two metres away from your flightmates,” explains<br />

the co-founder and MD of MST Golf. Speaking of fitness, we’ve got it all covered for you. Check out write-ups on Easy<br />

Fitness Hacks, Smart <strong>Sports</strong> Gadgets, healthy meals at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall and <strong>Tropicana</strong> Avenue, and more!<br />

To mark World Environment Day on <strong>June</strong> 5, we focus on some of the world’s greenest golf courses, including <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

Golf & Country Resort, as well as <strong>Tropicana</strong>’s sustainability commitments and innovative approaches to eco-friendly<br />

township development. Our Genting Highlands Special is this edition’s highlight. Come on a Genting Highlands trip with<br />

us and experience life at the peak. <strong>Tropicana</strong> WindCity is a new mega development for the highlands by <strong>Tropicana</strong>.<br />

It will include <strong>Tropicana</strong> Grandhill, <strong>Tropicana</strong> Paradise, and <strong>Tropicana</strong> Avalon, all of which feature novel lifestyle<br />

components.<br />

Indoor plants are a great way to add a touch of nature to your<br />

living space while making the air in your home healthier<br />



Located at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall, Plant Meets Art is a plant shop that<br />

combines elements of art into its bouquet creations. Using flowers, stems,<br />

moss and roots; incorporated with visual components such as colour, form,<br />

line, shape and texture - which form the “art” element - this shop specialises<br />

in living creations. Plant Meets Art director, Linda Hooi says, “We sell green<br />

bouquets, terrariums, pots, vases, and a small collection of home décor. We<br />

also provide services like customised bouquets, indoor landscapes and office<br />

decorating.” Hooi chooses plants that are easy to care for, with a preference<br />

for low-light plants and those that are drought-tolerant. In creating a visually<br />

appealing home with plants, Hooi believes that aesthetics play a crucial<br />

role in evoking feelings of tranquility, adding that other elements in the<br />

space must also be in perfect harmony. Aside from aesthetics, plant health<br />

is also important. According to Hooi, a happy and thriving plant will evoke<br />

that tranquil feeling in any space. For decorating ideas, Hooi suggest using<br />

standalone plants. An individual potted plant that is big enough can make a<br />

statement and become a major feature, whether it is on the table or on the<br />

floor. A tall fiddle leaf plant can be placed on a stand next to the television<br />

cabinet, or a money plant placed individually on the kitchen table. Grouping<br />

plants in odd numbers of three or five will lend a more casual look. For a<br />

natural looking arrangement, group plants with differing heights.<br />

instils the idea of being conscious of how<br />

Did you know? Every 43 seconds, one bag of blood is needed to<br />

save a patient's life?<br />

Right now, the National Blood Centre's supply is critically low<br />

and help is much needed. In answering the government’s call to<br />

replenish the centre's stock, <strong>Tropicana</strong> Foundation organised a<br />

Blood Donation Drive at the <strong>Tropicana</strong> Experiential Hall in <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

Gardens Office Tower. <strong>The</strong> campaign held on 23 March <strong>2022</strong> was<br />

open to all staff and the response was heartening. Close to 50<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> staff came forward for this good cause. It was definitely<br />

inspiring to see these wonderful individuals stepping up to do their<br />

part for a very good cause as the pandemic has made it difficult for<br />

willing donors to come out and donate.<br />

All participants were screened and tested by the medical officers<br />

from the centre to determine their eligibility and to ensure all criteria<br />

are met for the safety of the donors and the future recipients. <strong>The</strong><br />

drive was also held in strict compliance with COVID-19 protocols. As a<br />

token of appreciation, donors were given complimentary vouchers for<br />

their time, effort, and bravery. We are also proud to see the <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

family embracing our mantra, redefining the art of living. It is with<br />

their help that we are able to make a difference in someone’s life.

GINGER<br />

Bentong ginger can be used for many things, from<br />

improving health to enhancing food flavour<br />

If you mention Bentong, a sleepy district in Pahang, there’s a good chance that the word<br />

ginger will come up in conversation. Within the district is a small town called Bukit Tinggi,<br />

famous for its rhizome, which is more aromatic, spicy, and pricey than regular ginger. Due<br />

to its high quality and demand, Bentong Ginger, as it is called, is the most popular ginger in<br />

Malaysia. Farmers who practise commercial agriculture have been planting this ginger on the<br />

hilly slopes of Bukit Tinggi for over a century. Apparently, early migrants from Southern China<br />

brought ginger with them because they used it extensively in their cooking. Interestingly, they<br />

discovered that ginger grew better in Bukit Tinggi than it did back in their homeland!<br />

As a result of the clean, fresh air and fertile soil that the temperate region is blessed with,<br />

Bentong ginger is rich in nutrients such as gingerol, which has medicinal benefits. It can aid<br />

in the relief of nausea, and vomiting. Bentong ginger can also help prevent colds, control<br />

cholesterol, and treat respiratory conditions. It has a thinner skin and can be consumed<br />

immediately after cleaning. What’s more, Bentong ginger retains its freshness for up to a month,<br />

whereas regular ginger begins to dry and shrink after one to two weeks. In the kitchen, ginger<br />

can be used in many ways. To flavour soups and rice, whole, unpeeled ginger is added to water<br />

and other cooking liquids. In some cuisines, pickled ginger is used as a condiment. Fried rice and<br />

stir-fries, meat marinades and glazes, and vinaigrettes all benefit from minced ginger.<br />

59<br />

• Bukit Tinggi, Bentong is 25.5 kilometres away from <strong>Tropicana</strong> Grandhill, Genting Highlands.

TGCR all lit up



<strong>The</strong> beauty of TGCR is that its greenery has a positive impact on the<br />

environment while providing golfers with a breathtaking and natural<br />

landscape. <strong>The</strong> golf course takes pride in many other ways it contributes<br />

to environmental preservation. For example, a pond on the course is<br />

designed to attract dragonflies and serve as a mosquito biocontrol.<br />

Unlike chemical control, it is an eco-friendly solution to eliminate<br />

mosquitoes. Furthermore, the presence of dragonflies indicates that<br />

the water is clean and that the oxygen levels are stable. At 625 acres,<br />

TGCR also supports a diverse plant life that benefits the environment by<br />

absorbing and filtering rain, providing wildlife habitat, and reducing noise<br />

pollution. It’s no surprise that some migratory bird species that travel<br />

Nor Tijan Firdaus creates art out of e-waste, redefining the acronym IT<br />

72<br />

E-waste on wood coated with 2k matte<br />

epoxy resin titled After Ma Jolie<br />

Computer circuit boards, among other e-waste,<br />

form part of this piece called After Pago Pago 1966


To mark World Environment<br />

Day on <strong>June</strong> 5, we present<br />

Nor Tijan Firdaus's artworks,<br />

which address environmental<br />

and consumerist issues.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 36-year-old, who<br />

holds a Master’s degree in<br />

Fine Art and Technology from Universiti Teknologi<br />

Mara (“UiTM”), has been incorporating leftover<br />

materials from electronic components into her<br />

art pieces in recent years. Many of her artworks,<br />

which merge sculpture and colour on canvas,<br />

have addressed questions of consumerism and<br />

mankind’s relationship with the environment in an<br />

oblique manner. Her striking and thought-provoking<br />

creations may possibly inspire us to believe that it<br />

is never too late to save our planet and that we will<br />

be able to stop further damage and begin to respect<br />

and repair it. According to Zena Khan, curator at<br />

AFK Collection in Kuala Lumpur where some of Nor<br />

Tijan’s artworks are available, the artist grounds her<br />

art in a research-based approach, which originates<br />

from her background in art academia.<br />

“At UiTM she pursued a Major in Sculpture and Minor<br />

in Painting, graduating with an Honours degree after<br />

mastering the technical complexities of creating art<br />

in these two genres. Understanding her ability to<br />

work well in both two and three-dimensional planes,<br />

her capacity to build the wall sculptures that have<br />

become her mainstay, with easily readable, relief-like<br />

surfaces, becomes clear. Her conceptual impetus<br />

has roots in her Master’s degree in Fine Art, where<br />

she became increasingly concerned with the effects<br />

of consumerism on sustainability and our everyday<br />

This artwork titled Just Scan It includes discarded<br />

computer and smartphone parts<br />

lives,” Zena explains. She adds that Nor Tijan had<br />

a young family at the time of her Masters and<br />

was aware of the quantity of rubbish she was<br />

suddenly amassing, compared to her life as a<br />

single woman.Commercialism concerns surfaced,<br />

including how we buy, replace, and update not<br />

only phones and computers, but also clothes,<br />

toys, and furniture. Most of them are designed<br />

objects, however sustainability was not a factor in<br />

their creation.<br />

Surrounded by these items, most of which<br />

were destined for the trash, Nor Tijan pondered<br />

if she could repurpose them as pieces of art.<br />

Reassessing post-consumer material intended to<br />

be waste immediately provided broader critical<br />

context to her practice. “Sifting through materials<br />

sourced from her own home, or purchased<br />

from friends, and recycling and waste plants,<br />

she generates commentary into sustainability,<br />

materialism and also post-formalism,” Zena<br />

elaborates. E-waste in particular, with its<br />

vivid colours and intricate details, provided<br />

a great starting point for her to create forms<br />

and aesthetics that speak about the Malaysian<br />

predicament while exploring new approaches to<br />

sculpture and assemblage art.<br />

terms of design, materials, and cost, but also in terms<br />

of homeowner and environmental well-being. When<br />

it comes to the latter, one good example is <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

Heights, a sustainable township development in Kajang<br />

with a 16-acre Central Park and 750-metre linear lake.<br />

Tree transplantation is one of many environmentally<br />

friendly aspects of the development. Throughout<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> Heights, 400 mature khaya and 15 rain trees<br />

that were already on-site were replanted to support the<br />

current roadway system and land parcel development<br />

of individual precincts.<br />

<strong>The</strong> use of the original topography is also<br />

commendable. <strong>Tropicana</strong> had the option of levelling<br />

the land and starting over with a new concept, but<br />

by preserving the original topography, excavation<br />

and soil erosion were greatly reduced. <strong>The</strong> gentle<br />

valleys, relatively flat expanse of fairways, and existing<br />

central lake added a dimension to the landscapes that<br />

is distinctively <strong>Tropicana</strong> Heights - and honours the<br />

land for its original formation. Gross Pollutant Traps<br />

(“GPTs”) are also installed at various points throughout<br />

the development. <strong>The</strong>se filters capture storm water<br />

pollution before it enters the waterways. GPTs catch<br />

the majority of litter and silt before it reaches any<br />

waterway. <strong>The</strong> contents of the GPTs are regularly<br />

emptied and disposed of in a landfill.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Tropicana</strong> Heights Clubhouse, as well as the<br />

Parkfield Residences Management Office and<br />

Multipurpose Hall, all have rainwater harvesting<br />

systems. Water collected from the roof is filtered<br />

into storage tanks to be used for the property’s<br />

landscaping needs. But the linear lake is without a<br />

doubt the largest rainwater harvesting system. As for<br />

the landscaping cuttings, they are taken to a compost<br />

heap and converted into fertiliser for the soil. This is<br />

distributed for use throughout the property to aid in<br />

the regeneration of the soil and vegetation growth. LED<br />

lights are installed throughout the park, main public<br />

buildings, and internal roadway. <strong>The</strong>se energy-efficient<br />

lights will reduce the development’s overall power<br />

consumption over time, and provide significant savings<br />

in operational costs.<br />


MAY/JUNE <strong>2022</strong> COVER STORY<br />




MST Golf co-founder and Managing Director, KP Low chats<br />

with us about the store at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall, and more<br />

79<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: Can you tell us more about the MST Golf store at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall?<br />

Low: MST Golf at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall occupies about 36,000 square feet with a 45-metre<br />

frontage. <strong>The</strong>re are four storefronts - MST Golf Super Store, MST Athleisure Wear, MST Golf<br />

Arena and Tee Box Restaurant & Bar, all internally connected. Additionally, Golf Lab is a<br />

state-of-the-art teaching and club-fitting facility where golfers can work on their swings with<br />

teaching pros or get custom-fitted by qualified fitters.

MAY/JUNE <strong>2022</strong> COVER STORY<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: How different is it from other golf stores?<br />

Low: This store showcases MST Golf’s latest elevated retail<br />

concept, combining shopping, playing, learning, dining, and<br />

leisure to deliver a total consumer experience. For golfers, MST<br />

Golf Super Store houses the most complete selection across all<br />

product categories from global golf brands. And, regardless<br />

whether you’re a golfer or not, MST Athleisure Wear offers the<br />

latest collections from leading sports and high-street brands.<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: What factors influenced the choice to open a MST<br />

Golf store at <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall?<br />

Low: Location, location, location! It’s our anchor store in that<br />

area and is ideally located to serve our target consumers<br />

from a number of affluent and vibrant townships such as Kota<br />

Damansara, Mutiara Damansara, Damansara Perdana, Bandar<br />

Utama, and Taman Tun Dr Ismail.<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: What are the advantages of having a store at<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall?<br />

Low: It‘s easy for our customers to find us and convenient for<br />

them to get in and out of <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall. <strong>The</strong> long<br />

frontage allows us to present multiple storefronts to attract<br />

different consumers, including non-golfers.<br />

80<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: What would you recommend a potential customer<br />

purchase at the MST Golf store, <strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall?<br />

Low: <strong>The</strong>y are many types of golfers, from beginners and<br />

social golfers to skilled players and professionals, so I would<br />

make recommendations based on their playing abilities and<br />

needs. From a technical standpoint, MST Golf Super Store is<br />

staffed with experienced golf consultants and qualified clubfitters<br />

who will be able to recommend the ideal equipment<br />

based on the customer’s physique, swing speed, ability and<br />

shot tendencies. For non-golfers, I would show them the latest<br />

athleisure wear collections which are made of performance<br />

fabrics for easy wear and care.<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: As a golfer, what do you think of <strong>Tropicana</strong> Golf &<br />

Country Resort?<br />

Low: TGCR is one of the most prestigious golf clubs in Malaysia<br />

with a full range of golf, sports, recreational, and F&B facilities.<br />

<strong>The</strong> golf course is definitely one of the best maintained in<br />

the region. To me, it plays quite long, and the greens are<br />

very undulating and tricky. If you play to your handicap at<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>, then you are probably a “buaya” (an ace) at other<br />

courses!<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong>: Would you by any chance own a <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

property?<br />

Low: Not yet! But I’m keeping an eye out for one.

Onitsuka Tiger is becoming increasingly<br />

popular when it comes to ready-to-wear<br />

and accessories, despite the fact that<br />

the brand is best known for its sneakers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> brand was founded in 1949, when<br />

Kihachiro Onitsuka created the first<br />

Asics shoe in his living room in Kobe,<br />

Japan, under the Onitsuka Tiger name.<br />

Kihachiro’s dedication to promoting<br />

youth health through sports gave birth<br />

to the Onitsuka Tiger stripes, which have<br />

since come to represent the pinnacle of<br />

sporting excellence. As a lifestyle brand,<br />

the legend lives on today in the fusion<br />

of Japanese tradition and contemporary<br />

style. Onitsuka Tiger shoes, apparel, and<br />

accessories reflect the spirit of Japan<br />

with designs that range from updated<br />

classic silhouettes to new styles and<br />

collaborations with like-minded artists<br />

and cultural connoisseurs.<br />

When Posh meets Reebok you can<br />

expect an exceptionally functional<br />

and fashionable collection<br />



<strong>The</strong> latest Reebok and Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) collaboration on<br />

functional sportswear is guided by the principles of ease and adaptability.<br />

<strong>The</strong> most essential activewear is included in a high-performance wardrobe,<br />

and it is done in its purest form while remaining closely linked to the<br />

sporting and fashion worlds. “At the beginning of the design process I<br />

always start with one key piece that references a particular sport. Last<br />

season was all about the tennis dress whereas this collection sees the<br />

introduction of a wide-leg basketball warm-up trouser inspired by my<br />

travels to the US.<br />

“My vintage wardrobe also plays a big part in the look and feel of each<br />

capsule, the Reebok M65 Parka nods to one of my favourite jackets - we’ve<br />

cropped it, cut it to the waist and fitted it with wide pockets so it can be<br />

worn all day long,” explains Victoria. Feminine proportions are reworked,<br />

and silhouettes are cropped and boxy to emphasise the waist. <strong>The</strong> yarns<br />

in the seamless series are woven tighter for a more compact texture,<br />

twisting to allow for body movement while sculpting and supporting.<br />

<strong>The</strong> VB Cropped Hoody has also been updated with a jersey lining, which<br />

promises comfort and warmth during recovery.<br />

Animals can help humans cope with and recover from a variety of<br />

physical and mental health issues<br />

Many physical and mental issues can be alleviated by<br />

interacting with a loving pet. Pet therapy, as it is called,<br />

is administered by a doctor or therapist overseeing the<br />

patient’s treatment, allowing individuals to interact with a<br />

trained animal in the presence of the animal’s caretaker or<br />

handler.<br />

<strong>The</strong> most common pets used in pet therapy are dogs<br />

and cats. Horses, guinea pigs, fish, and other animals<br />

that match the screening criteria may also be used. <strong>The</strong><br />

type of animal chosen is determined by the therapeutic<br />

aims of the individual’s treatment plan. A pet therapy<br />

programme’s objectives may include enhancing motor<br />

skills and joint mobility, enhancing either assisted or<br />

independent movement, boosting self-esteem, increasing<br />

verbal communication, and enhancing social skills, among<br />

others. Other advantages of pet therapy is that it makes the<br />

individual happier and less depressed, promotes a positive<br />

mindset, and helps children learn empathic and nurturing<br />

skills. Apart from these, pet therapy can help lower blood<br />

pressure and improve cardiovascular health. It also has the<br />

ability to release endorphins, which have a relaxing effect.<br />

This can help to reduce pain, tension, and improve one’s<br />

general mental health.

As a responsible developer and pioneer of residential<br />

resort-style living, <strong>Tropicana</strong> consistently considers the link<br />

between residents and the environment in its landscape<br />

design. <strong>The</strong> township and individual residential parcels<br />

are designed by award-winning landscape architects. “<strong>The</strong><br />

landscape concept for each parcel is uniquely tailored<br />

individually to create an identity of its own but still keeping<br />

the design DNA of <strong>Tropicana</strong>,” says Jimmy Khoo, Deputy<br />

GM, Planning & Design Department. <strong>Tropicana</strong> focuses on<br />

landscape design for each township to give enough green<br />

space to create Central Parks with lakes. “A park life full<br />

of greenery is the mainstay of life in all of our township<br />

development.” <strong>The</strong> Central Parks are created with the<br />

demands of the user demography in mind, as well as the<br />

existing landform of each township. <strong>The</strong> Central Parks at<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> Heights and <strong>Tropicana</strong> Aman, for example, are<br />

designed to closely resemble suburban green spaces that<br />

encourage and protect the natural ecosystem.<br />

“At <strong>Tropicana</strong> Aman Central Park, around 2,400 trees and<br />

palms have been planted, creating a warm and inviting<br />

setting. On top of these, we are also creating woodlands<br />

within the Central Park which contribute to another 4,000<br />

numbers of trees in sapling form,” says Jimmy. Composting<br />

is also a common practice with <strong>Tropicana</strong> Aman and<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> Heights landscape contractors. Non-woody green<br />

waste like leaves, grass clippings, weeds, and garden plant<br />

trimmings create excellent compost. In addition, <strong>Tropicana</strong><br />

has been incorporating LED landscape lightings for recent<br />

developments. In comparison to traditional light bulbs,<br />

LEDs consume less energy. Residents may save money<br />

on monthly operation and management costs while also<br />

putting less strain on the energy grid.<br />

For high-rise developments, <strong>Tropicana</strong> creates vertical<br />

green spaces on building facades. Climbers are planted on<br />

the exteriors of <strong>Tropicana</strong> Grande and <strong>Tropicana</strong> Metropark<br />

Pandora Residences, which help to clean the air, decrease<br />

and regulate the temperature, and keep the environment<br />

healthy. At <strong>Tropicana</strong> Golf & Country Resort (“TGCR”), a<br />

pond was created to attract dragonflies and use them as<br />

a biocontrol for mosquitoes. Unlike chemical treatment,<br />

it is an eco-friendly solution to eliminate mosquitoes.<br />

Dragonflies also signal pure water and stable oxygen levels.

Begin your day on a healthy note with this<br />

nutritious breakfast meal. It consists of an<br />

omelette made with egg whites, grilled<br />

vegetables, and guacamole. A homemade<br />

tomato sauce lends extra flavour.<br />


This barbecue-glazed pan-fried chicken<br />

patty is topped with a fried egg, pineapple,<br />

cheese, and lettuce. Tomato salsa, cheese<br />

sauce, and french fries are among the side<br />

dishes. This is a must-try burger. Available only<br />

in <strong>May</strong> and <strong>June</strong>.<br />



You’ll be hooked on this dish since the alfredo<br />

sauce is so creamy and cheesy! <strong>The</strong> richness<br />

of the sauce is absorbed by the pappardelle<br />

pasta, and the grilled marinated chicken<br />

breast makes this meal filling and protein-rich.<br />

Available only in <strong>May</strong> and <strong>June</strong>.<br />




This grilled lamb shank is unlike any other, with a<br />

combination of Asian and Western flavours. It comes<br />

with steamed white rice, banana bud salad, water<br />

celery, toasted coconut shavings, fish crackers, and<br />

asam sauce. <strong>The</strong> well-balanced combination results in<br />

a really filling meal. Available only in <strong>May</strong> and <strong>June</strong>.<br />


Typical Asian appetisers such as banana bud salad,<br />

steamed white rice, water celery, toasted coconut<br />

shavings, fish crackers, and asam sauce are served<br />

with this grilled beef ribs. This is a dish that everyone<br />

should try. Available only in <strong>May</strong> and <strong>June</strong>.<br />

Salad Atelier


HEALTHY,<br />

TASTY<br />

MEALS<br />

<strong>Tropicana</strong> Gardens Mall and <strong>Tropicana</strong> Avenue<br />

both have eateries that serve delectable and<br />

nutritious food<br />


Salad Atelier was founded on the principle of providing healthy<br />

whole foods in response to the country’s dramatic rise in<br />

obesity and noncommunicable disease rates. Established in<br />

2014, Salad Atelier’s mission is to encourage people to go<br />

green with their food choices and to nourish themselves with<br />

real, unprocessed ingredients. It aspires to be the go-to spot<br />

for busy Malaysians and expats who are tired of food that is<br />

overly processed and seasoned. After six years in the F&B<br />

industry, Salad Atelier founders noticed that while Malaysians<br />

strive for a healthy lifestyle, many struggle to find a consistent<br />

supply of the perfect, healthy meal. As a result, salad packages<br />

with brown rice, and poke bowls are now available on its<br />

delivery platform, providing the community with a healthy<br />

meal solution. Its mission remains the same since its inception:<br />

to provide healthy food to everyone while also encouraging<br />

sustainable eating habits.<br />
