EDITOR'S NOTE

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fitness Hacks, Smart Sports Gadgets, healthy meals at Tropicana Gardens Mall and Tropicana Avenue, and more!

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

Golf & Country Resort, as well as Tropicana’s sustainability commitments and innovative approaches to eco-friendly

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

us and experience life at the peak. Tropicana WindCity is a new mega development for the highlands by Tropicana.

It will include Tropicana Grandhill, Tropicana Paradise, and Tropicana Avalon, all of which feature novel lifestyle

components.

BRINGING NATURE

INDOORS

Indoor plants are a great way to add a touch of nature to your

living space while making the air in your home healthier

TROPICANA MAGAZINE

Located at Tropicana Gardens Mall, Plant Meets Art is a plant shop that

combines elements of art into its bouquet creations. Using flowers, stems,

moss and roots; incorporated with visual components such as colour, form,

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

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

bouquets, terrariums, pots, vases, and a small collection of home décor. We

also provide services like customised bouquets, indoor landscapes and office

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

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

appealing home with plants, Hooi believes that aesthetics play a crucial

role in evoking feelings of tranquility, adding that other elements in the

space must also be in perfect harmony. Aside from aesthetics, plant health

is also important. According to Hooi, a happy and thriving plant will evoke

that tranquil feeling in any space. For decorating ideas, Hooi suggest using

standalone plants. An individual potted plant that is big enough can make a

statement and become a major feature, whether it is on the table or on the

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

cabinet, or a money plant placed individually on the kitchen table. Grouping

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

natural looking arrangement, group plants with differing heights.

BENEFITS OF BENTONG

GINGER

Bentong ginger can be used for many things, from

improving health to enhancing food flavour

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

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

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

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

Malaysia. Farmers who practise commercial agriculture have been planting this ginger on the

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

brought ginger with them because they used it extensively in their cooking. Interestingly, they

discovered that ginger grew better in Bukit Tinggi than it did back in their homeland!

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

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

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

cholesterol, and treat respiratory conditions. It has a thinner skin and can be consumed

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

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

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

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

stir-fries, meat marinades and glazes, and vinaigrettes all benefit from minced ginger.

59

• Bukit Tinggi, Bentong is 25.5 kilometres away from Tropicana Grandhill, Genting Highlands.

TGCR all lit up


TROPICANA MAGAZINE

TROPICANA GOLF & COUNTRY RESORT (“TGCR”), MALAYSIA

The beauty of TGCR is that its greenery has a positive impact on the

environment while providing golfers with a breathtaking and natural

landscape. The golf course takes pride in many other ways it contributes

to environmental preservation. For example, a pond on the course is

designed to attract dragonflies and serve as a mosquito biocontrol.

Unlike chemical control, it is an eco-friendly solution to eliminate

mosquitoes. Furthermore, the presence of dragonflies indicates that

the water is clean and that the oxygen levels are stable. At 625 acres,

TGCR also supports a diverse plant life that benefits the environment by

absorbing and filtering rain, providing wildlife habitat, and reducing noise

pollution. It’s no surprise that some migratory bird species that travel

long distances from Siberia to Indonesia can be found here!

TROPICANA MAGAZINE

To mark World Environment

Day on June 5, we present

Nor Tijan Firdaus's artworks,

which address environmental

and consumerist issues.

The 36-year-old, who

holds a Master’s degree in

Fine Art and Technology from Universiti Teknologi

Mara (“UiTM”), has been incorporating leftover

materials from electronic components into her

art pieces in recent years. Many of her artworks,

which merge sculpture and colour on canvas,

have addressed questions of consumerism and

mankind’s relationship with the environment in an

oblique manner. Her striking and thought-provoking

creations may possibly inspire us to believe that it

is never too late to save our planet and that we will

be able to stop further damage and begin to respect

and repair it. According to Zena Khan, curator at

AFK Collection in Kuala Lumpur where some of Nor

Tijan’s artworks are available, the artist grounds her

art in a research-based approach, which originates

from her background in art academia.

“At UiTM she pursued a Major in Sculpture and Minor

in Painting, graduating with an Honours degree after

mastering the technical complexities of creating art

in these two genres. Understanding her ability to

work well in both two and three-dimensional planes,

her capacity to build the wall sculptures that have

become her mainstay, with easily readable, relief-like

surfaces, becomes clear. Her conceptual impetus

has roots in her Master’s degree in Fine Art, where

she became increasingly concerned with the effects

of consumerism on sustainability and our everyday

This artwork titled Just Scan It includes discarded

computer and smartphone parts

lives,” Zena explains. She adds that Nor Tijan had

a young family at the time of her Masters and

was aware of the quantity of rubbish she was

suddenly amassing, compared to her life as a

single woman.Commercialism concerns surfaced,

including how we buy, replace, and update not

only phones and computers, but also clothes,

toys, and furniture. Most of them are designed

objects, however sustainability was not a factor in

their creation.

Surrounded by these items, most of which

were destined for the trash, Nor Tijan pondered

if she could repurpose them as pieces of art.

Reassessing post-consumer material intended to

be waste immediately provided broader critical

context to her practice. “Sifting through materials

sourced from her own home, or purchased

from friends, and recycling and waste plants,

she generates commentary into sustainability,

materialism and also post-formalism,” Zena

elaborates. E-waste in particular, with its

vivid colours and intricate details, provided

a great starting point for her to create forms

and aesthetics that speak about the Malaysian

predicament while exploring new approaches to

sculpture and assemblage art.

MAY/JUNE 2022 SEASONS

76


TROPICANA MAGAZINE

Tropicana takes pleasure in making every attempt

to ensure that everyone obtains the best, not just in

terms of design, materials, and cost, but also in terms

of homeowner and environmental well-being. When

it comes to the latter, one good example is Tropicana

Heights, a sustainable township development in Kajang

with a 16-acre Central Park and 750-metre linear lake.

Tree transplantation is one of many environmentally

friendly aspects of the development. Throughout

Tropicana Heights, 400 mature khaya and 15 rain trees

that were already on-site were replanted to support the

current roadway system and land parcel development

of individual precincts.

The use of the original topography is also

commendable. Tropicana had the option of levelling

the land and starting over with a new concept, but

by preserving the original topography, excavation

and soil erosion were greatly reduced. The gentle

valleys, relatively flat expanse of fairways, and existing

central lake added a dimension to the landscapes that

is distinctively Tropicana Heights - and honours the

land for its original formation. Gross Pollutant Traps

(“GPTs”) are also installed at various points throughout

the development. These filters capture storm water

pollution before it enters the waterways. GPTs catch

the majority of litter and silt before it reaches any

waterway. The contents of the GPTs are regularly

emptied and disposed of in a landfill.

The Tropicana Heights Clubhouse, as well as the

Parkfield Residences Management Office and

Multipurpose Hall, all have rainwater harvesting

systems. Water collected from the roof is filtered

into storage tanks to be used for the property’s

landscaping needs. But the linear lake is without a

doubt the largest rainwater harvesting system. As for

the landscaping cuttings, they are taken to a compost

heap and converted into fertiliser for the soil. This is

distributed for use throughout the property to aid in

the regeneration of the soil and vegetation growth. LED

lights are installed throughout the park, main public

buildings, and internal roadway. These energy-efficient

lights will reduce the development’s overall power

consumption over time, and provide significant savings

in operational costs.

TROPICANA MAGAZINE

WITH KP LOW

MST Golf co-founder and Managing Director, KP Low chats

with us about the store at Tropicana Gardens Mall, and more

79

Tropicana: Can you tell us more about the MST Golf store at Tropicana Gardens Mall?

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

frontage. There are four storefronts - MST Golf Super Store, MST Athleisure Wear, MST Golf

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

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

teaching pros or get custom-fitted by qualified fitters.


MAY/JUNE 2022 COVER STORY

Tropicana: How different is it from other golf stores?

Low: This store showcases MST Golf’s latest elevated retail

concept, combining shopping, playing, learning, dining, and

leisure to deliver a total consumer experience. For golfers, MST

Golf Super Store houses the most complete selection across all

product categories from global golf brands. And, regardless

whether you’re a golfer or not, MST Athleisure Wear offers the

latest collections from leading sports and high-street brands.

Tropicana: What factors influenced the choice to open a MST

Golf store at Tropicana Gardens Mall?

Low: Location, location, location! It’s our anchor store in that

area and is ideally located to serve our target consumers

from a number of affluent and vibrant townships such as Kota

Damansara, Mutiara Damansara, Damansara Perdana, Bandar

Utama, and Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

Tropicana: What are the advantages of having a store at

Tropicana Gardens Mall?

Low: It‘s easy for our customers to find us and convenient for

them to get in and out of Tropicana Gardens Mall. The long

frontage allows us to present multiple storefronts to attract

different consumers, including non-golfers.

80

Tropicana: What would you recommend a potential customer

purchase at the MST Golf store, Tropicana Gardens Mall?

Low: They are many types of golfers, from beginners and

social golfers to skilled players and professionals, so I would

make recommendations based on their playing abilities and

needs. From a technical standpoint, MST Golf Super Store is

staffed with experienced golf consultants and qualified clubfitters

who will be able to recommend the ideal equipment

based on the customer’s physique, swing speed, ability and

shot tendencies. For non-golfers, I would show them the latest

athleisure wear collections which are made of performance

fabrics for easy wear and care.

Tropicana: As a golfer, what do you think of Tropicana Golf &

Country Resort?

Low: TGCR is one of the most prestigious golf clubs in Malaysia

with a full range of golf, sports, recreational, and F&B facilities.

The golf course is definitely one of the best maintained in

the region. To me, it plays quite long, and the greens are

very undulating and tricky. If you play to your handicap at

Tropicana, then you are probably a “buaya” (an ace) at other

courses!

Tropicana: Would you by any chance own a Tropicana

property?

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

The latest Reebok and Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) collaboration on

functional sportswear is guided by the principles of ease and adaptability.

The most essential activewear is included in a high-performance wardrobe,

and it is done in its purest form while remaining closely linked to the

sporting and fashion worlds. “At the beginning of the design process I

always start with one key piece that references a particular sport. Last

season was all about the tennis dress whereas this collection sees the

introduction of a wide-leg basketball warm-up trouser inspired by my

travels to the US.

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

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

cropped it, cut it to the waist and fitted it with wide pockets so it can be

worn all day long,” explains Victoria. Feminine proportions are reworked,

and silhouettes are cropped and boxy to emphasise the waist. The yarns

in the seamless series are woven tighter for a more compact texture,

twisting to allow for body movement while sculpting and supporting.

The VB Cropped Hoody has also been updated with a jersey lining, which

beyond ordinary gold flecks. 24K gold is

coated onto every part of the bike, from

the curved handlebars to the gear chain, to

make it shine in the sunlight. It comes with

a soft San Marco black suede saddle and

SR4 racing tyres, but clients who want to

stand out even more can customise their

saddle and handlebars with exotic skins

and premium leathers.

KONA

Kona is a household name in the bicycle

business. Established in 1988 in Vancouver,

Canada, Kona bikes are sold in over 60

countries worldwide and are made from

materials such as carbon fibre, titanium,

aluminium, and steel. The mountains of

Vancouver inspired the firm to develop

a line of freeride mountain bikes noted

for their endurance and ability to handle

difficult terrain.

PETS AS HEALERS

Animals can help humans cope with and recover from a variety of

physical and mental health issues

Many physical and mental issues can be alleviated by

interacting with a loving pet. Pet therapy, as it is called,

is administered by a doctor or therapist overseeing the

patient’s treatment, allowing individuals to interact with a

trained animal in the presence of the animal’s caretaker or

handler.

The most common pets used in pet therapy are dogs

and cats. Horses, guinea pigs, fish, and other animals

that match the screening criteria may also be used. The

type of animal chosen is determined by the therapeutic

aims of the individual’s treatment plan. A pet therapy

programme’s objectives may include enhancing motor

skills and joint mobility, enhancing either assisted or

independent movement, boosting self-esteem, increasing

verbal communication, and enhancing social skills, among

others. Other advantages of pet therapy is that it makes the

individual happier and less depressed, promotes a positive

mindset, and helps children learn empathic and nurturing

skills. Apart from these, pet therapy can help lower blood

pressure and improve cardiovascular health. It also has the

ability to release endorphins, which have a relaxing effect.

This can help to reduce pain, tension, and improve one’s

general mental health.

As a responsible developer and pioneer of residential

resort-style living, Tropicana consistently considers the link

between residents and the environment in its landscape

design. The township and individual residential parcels

are designed by award-winning landscape architects. “The

landscape concept for each parcel is uniquely tailored

individually to create an identity of its own but still keeping

the design DNA of Tropicana,” says Jimmy Khoo, Deputy

GM, Planning & Design Department. Tropicana focuses on

landscape design for each township to give enough green

space to create Central Parks with lakes. “A park life full

of greenery is the mainstay of life in all of our township

development.” The Central Parks are created with the

demands of the user demography in mind, as well as the

existing landform of each township. The Central Parks at

Tropicana Heights and Tropicana Aman, for example, are

designed to closely resemble suburban green spaces that

encourage and protect the natural ecosystem.

“At Tropicana Aman Central Park, around 2,400 trees and

palms have been planted, creating a warm and inviting

setting. On top of these, we are also creating woodlands

within the Central Park which contribute to another 4,000

numbers of trees in sapling form,” says Jimmy. Composting

is also a common practice with Tropicana Aman and

Tropicana Heights landscape contractors. Non-woody green

waste like leaves, grass clippings, weeds, and garden plant

trimmings create excellent compost. In addition, Tropicana

has been incorporating LED landscape lightings for recent

developments. In comparison to traditional light bulbs,

LEDs consume less energy. Residents may save money

on monthly operation and management costs while also

putting less strain on the energy grid.

For high-rise developments, Tropicana creates vertical

green spaces on building facades. Climbers are planted on

the exteriors of Tropicana Grande and Tropicana Metropark

Pandora Residences, which help to clean the air, decrease

and regulate the temperature, and keep the environment

healthy. At Tropicana Golf & Country Resort (“TGCR”), a

pond was created to attract dragonflies and use them as

a biocontrol for mosquitoes. Unlike chemical treatment,

it is an eco-friendly solution to eliminate mosquitoes.

Dragonflies also signal pure water and stable oxygen levels.

SALAD ATELIER

Salad Atelier was founded on the principle of providing healthy

whole foods in response to the country’s dramatic rise in

obesity and noncommunicable disease rates. Established in

2014, Salad Atelier’s mission is to encourage people to go

green with their food choices and to nourish themselves with

real, unprocessed ingredients. It aspires to be the go-to spot

for busy Malaysians and expats who are tired of food that is

overly processed and seasoned. After six years in the F&B

industry, Salad Atelier founders noticed that while Malaysians

strive for a healthy lifestyle, many struggle to find a consistent

supply of the perfect, healthy meal. As a result, salad packages

with brown rice, and poke bowls are now available on its

delivery platform, providing the community with a healthy

meal solution. Its mission remains the same since its inception:

to provide healthy food to everyone while also encouraging

sustainable eating habits.
