We celebrate his life by continuing to do what we do best; serving up delicious meals and experience that KRR is known for in Malaysia and beyond,” said Kennie Thong, Senior Marketing Manager of Berjaya Roasters (M) Sdn Bhd. 

KRR took Malaysia by storm when it first opened in Kuala Lumpur, back in 1994. The restaurant’s mid-casual dining concept featuring its irresistible and succulent rotisserie roasted chicken, complemented by a wide variety of hot and cold side dishes. 

This is made up home-made muffins, vegetable salads, pasta, soups, desserts and beverages served in a friendly and comfortable environment. This proves to be a winning recipe with Malaysians who enjoy its sumptuous food and wholesome experience.

GENG Pagi Hot (GPH) yang diwakili Shuk, Shuib dan Fizie telah berkesempatan untuk menemu bual isteri kepada mantan Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. 

Keberadaan GPH adalah bersempena dengan Hari Wanita Antarabangsa yang bertemakan Each for Equalbagi mendapatkan pandangan daripada tokoh negara ini. 

Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah merupakan salah seorang wanita Melayu yang pertama, memperoleh kursus perubatan di Kolej Perubatan King Edward VII, Singapura. Pada 22 Ogos 2019, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah telah dianugerahkan gelaran 'Ibu Negara' oleh Institut Strategi dan Kepimpinan Asia (ASLI) sempena sambutan Hari Wanita Kebangsaan. 

Pemilihan beliau bertepatan dengan peranannya sebagai wanita yang berjaya memberikan kepakaran dan pengetahuan yang dimiliki dalam usaha membangunkan negara.


“Banyak perubahan telah berlaku pada masa kini, zaman dulu ada berlaku gender discrimination, di mana lelaki lebih kehadapan berbanding wanita,” jelas Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah. 
“Cuma satu yang ingin saya lihat, diharap wanita-wanita semua mempunyai pendidikan dan kelayakan dalam sesuatu bidang supaya boleh membangunkan lagi wanita ke hadapan. Tetapi kini saya kagum dengan pencapaian mereka, kerana ramai doktor wanita di zaman sekarang, syukur alhamdulillah” tambah Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah lagi.

Diminta komen mengenai lagu terbaharu nyanyian Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza bersama Kmy Kmo dan Luca Sickta berjudul 7 Nasihat, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah memberitahu, 


“Lagu tersebut penuh dengan nasihat dan tepat. Jika tidak dihayati bait-bait lirik lagu tersebut, kita akan terlepas 7 nasihat atau pesanan yang diberikan. Wanita-wanita sekarang lebih berdikari dan tahu apa yang perlu dilakukan dan apa yang tidak boleh dilakukan. Itu terpulang kepada individu dan saya cukup bangga melihat wanita sekarang makin meningkat dari pelbagai segi.  
"Tetapi kita perlulah berhati-hati, apabila kita mencapai tahap yang lebih tinggi kita perlu menjaga diri. Semua wanita mesti mengejar pembangunan diri sendiri untuk masyarakat, negara dan keluarga.  
"Apabila mencapai ditahap yang tinggi, jangan lupa suami, keluarga dan rakyat (dalam negara kita, multiracial country). Siapa kata wanita lemah? Challenge kaum lelaki. Yang mengatakan wanita lemah adalah pada waktu mengandung dan melahirkan zuriat mereka, di situlah ditunjukkan kekuatan wanita itu”, akhir kata Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah.



Asyik bersembang mengenai peranan wanita, GPH sempat bertanyakan mengenai kejutan yang diberikan oleh Tun Dr. Mahathir, apabila beliau mengumumkan untuk melepaskan jawatannya sekali lagi pada 24 Februari yang lalu, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah menjelaskan dengan ringkas bahawa beliau tidak tahu menahu mengenai hal ini. 

“Itulah suami saya, Mahathir Mohamad tidak akan berkongsi dengan isterinya tentang perkara-perkara seperti ini, begitu juga pada tahun 2002. Beliau tidak mahu merisaukan saya”, tambahnya lagi.

Untuk ketahui lebih lanjut mengenai temu bual bersama Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, nantikan di Hot FM, Jumaat ini. Anda boleh juga tonton video penuh temu bual eksklusif ini di platform digital YouTube Hot TV dan Facebook Hot FM serta layari laman web dan laman media sosial rasmi Hot FM:

AS PART of their efforts in bridging the gap for secondary school students as they shift gears into university life, Taylor’s is embarking on an extensive secondary school outreach programme across Malaysia through the launch of The Risers with the support of the Ministry of Education (MOE). 

The Risers will feature a content and community portal that houses educational and lifestyle content, self-help tips, and also provide an avenue for secondary students to interact with their fellow students and Taylor’s Brand Ambassadors. 

Additionally, The Risers mobile application, set to launch by the middle of this year, works on a gamification and reward system which will see students earn points to unlock a world of benefits made available by Taylor’s in addition to fast-tracking their way to Taylor’s Scholarships and Bursaries. Benefits include access to workshops and exclusive events, and on-campus facilities.

The Risers aims to provide a platform for secondary school students to connect with each other and with university students, and access information on university life in order to discover their passions, future careers and university pathways, as well as ease their anxieties in entering higher education. The portal will also provide content for educators with regards to teaching tips and other related information. 

“We are more than happy to lend our support to this great initiative spearheaded by Taylor’s in reaching out to secondary students through the launch of The Risers Club, which should provide a pleasant and seamless transition for students as they move on to a new yet exciting phase in life. 
Today’s launch demonstrates a perfect example of how universities can complement the work done by MOE in helping to develop future-proof graduates,” added Datin Sri Hajah Nor Zamani binti Abdol Hamid, Director of Private Education Division, Ministry of Education. 

This initiative will serve to encourage progression into tertiary education, which falls in line with our economic transformation efforts towards building a highly-skilled nation – one that is solid, successful and competitive in the eyes of the world,” she added. 


“Our students have and will always be our main priority. In that vein, the launch of the Taylor’s The Risers is our effort to bridge the gap between secondary school and college, to help secondary school students discover their potential and the world of possibilities open to them especially in this era of the 4th Industrial Revolution where students need to take on and thrive in jobs that don’t yet exist and capitalize on ecosystems that we have never been seen before,” said Professor Dr Pradeep Nair, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, Taylor’s University. 
“Taylor’s College, after 50 years of experience in the education scene, has a strong record of excellence in pre-university programmes. I also believe that sharing the campus and facilities with Taylor’s University has created a synergy with regards to academic pursuits and industry collaborations,” he said.

Elaborating on the theme of preparing for the future, Professor Dr Pradeep mentioned that the Taylor’s Curriculum Framework (TCF) emphasises a broad-based approach to education, built on the core pillars of academic excellence, life skills and emotional well-being. 


“We are the first university to introduce courses in life skills, emotional intelligence, social innovation and design thinking. All subjects in our degree programmes are carefully embedded with key Future Ready Skills such as problem solving, communication, lifelong learning, entrepreneurialism and global perspectives,” added Professor Dr Pradeep. 

To launch The Risers with a bang, over 700 secondary students were present at the event, and attended a total of 22 workshops hosted by the different faculties on campus covering topics such as stock markets, acting, filmmaking, programming and culinary arts. The workshops were designed to enable students to discover their passions and gain a sneak peek into their future degree programmes.

Furthermore, TFM featured Malaysia’s premier sneaker lifestyle convention, SneakerLAH, one of the favourite conventions among sneakerheads, streetwear and fashion connoisseurs. A total of 46 sneaker booths, comprising 40 local and six international brands, showcased a wide variety of branded sneakers in addition to a sneaker lacing competition. 

Leading up as a preview to the sixth edition of SneakerLAH in 2020, the exclusive partnership with Taylor’s University saw its first ever in-campus convention in the SneakerLAH history. The two-day sneaker convention also showcased the design skills of ten Taylor’s students, who had the chance to work on their design exclusively with Edmond Looi, a well-known sneaker customiser. 

Other highlights were stage performances, trading pit, lucky draw and a panel forum featuring the who’s who of the sneaker world such as Bryan Chin, Tunway, Shawn Tan and Euan Lam.

KEMUNCULAN pelakon cantik Siti Saleha sebagai watak utama dalam drama adaptasi novel karya Syamnuriezmil bertajuk Manuskrip Cinta pastinya dinantikan peminat setianya.

Apatah lagi drama bersiri arahan Jamal Khan yang bersiaran sejak 5 Mac lalu, setiap hari, pukul 10.00 malam di TV Okey merupakan kemunculan pertama beliau membintangi drama untuk siaran Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) untuk tahun 2020.

Ia mengisahkan tentang Aryani, seorang penulis sepenuh masa yang suka bereksperimen dengan manuskrip untuk mencari kelainan dalam setiap manuskrip yang ditulisnya. Manuskrip keempat tulisannya tidak diberi pelepasan oleh editor, Kak Adibah yang merasakan kisah cinta yang ditulisnya terlalu kosong tanpa watak antagonis. 

Kak Adibah mencabar Aryani untuk jatuh cinta jika dia mahu menulis kisah cinta yang menyentuh perasaan dan lebih dramatik. 

Watak asal yang ditulis dalam manuskrip Aryani sebenarnya berdasarkan watak Dr. Rian Akasyah, seorang doktor pakar jantung (cardiologist) yang menyewa di rumah sebelahnya. Dian selalu memerhatikan gerak-geri Rian, mengambil tahu pasal kerjaya Rian dan hal-hal berkenaan dengan hidup seorang doktor pakar jantung. 




Tunang Rian, Helena juga diselitkan dalam manuskripnya. Gara-gara Kak Adibah menyuruhnya bercinta, Aryani terpaksa mencari teman lelaki tikus putih untuk eksperimenkan cinta dalam manuskripnya. 

Dian meminta kawan baiknya, Gee untuk mencarikannya teman lelaki. Tanpa disangka, diperkenalkan dengan lelaki yang pernah dijumpai dahulu iaitu Dr Izak Ashaal yang juga kawan baik kekasih Gee, Effan. Lalu apakah yang terjadi dalam hubungan mereka? Ikuti kesudahannya di TV Okey.
