Konvensyen Antarabangsa Bugis Diaspora

KALAM dengan sukacitanya ingin menjemput semua pakar, pihak akademik, professional, organisasi dan individu dari pelbagai bidang untuk bersama‐sama berkumpul di Konvensyen Antarabangsa Diaspora Bugis untuk perbincangan, perkongsian dan perdebatan tentang ‘Bugis’.
Bugis merupakan salah satu etnik yang amat berpengaruh dalam dunia Melayu. Etnik ini telahpun tersebar diseluruh rantau Melayu dan kepulauan Pasifik sejak abad ke 15.
The significance of Bugis Heritage would be their extraordinary ability to survive through the centuries amidst its geographical fragmentation and adapt to diversified local socio culture. Keistimewaan keturunan Bugis mungkin adalah daya ketahanan yang tinggi untuk kekal wujud setelah berabad‐abad walaupun berlaku perpecahan dari segi geografi dan juga penyesuaian kepada sosiobudaya kawasan tempatan.

Maintaining the Charm of Johor Baru

JOHOR BARU: Old and new elements and features must co-exist and complement each other under the multi-billion ringgit Johor Baru city centre transformation project. University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Dean, Faculty of Built Environment, Prof Dr Ahmad Nazri Muhamad Ludin said redevelopment did not mean the old has to make way for the new. “But the most important thing is that the project is able to bring back the crowd to Johor Baru again and make it a vibrant city,’’ he said. Ahmad Nazri said the opening of the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex at Bukit Chagar here in 2008, was the main reason why the city centre was now ‘deserted’. Prior to the opening of the CIQ, motorists and visitors especially Singaporeans would stop over in the city centre to change money and patronise eateries but the traffic had now been diverted to Jalan Tebrau and Stulang Laut. He also said the parties involv…

This is one of most anticipated event in the academia of architecture in Malaysia and the region. Overall about 600 participants are expected from 22 institutions in Malaysia and the region.
