The ceremony, held at Serene Heights sales gallery was followed by an exciting and fun-filled Hari Raya festivity, where more than 1,000 guests, including the Company’s Loyalty Cardmembers- Trésorians, invited guests and the public joined in.

The Serene Heights – Begonia Handover Celebration was graced by Semenyih State Assemblyman, Tuan Bakthiar Mohd Nor, who was accompanied by UEM Sunrise’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib; its Chief Operating Officer, Dato’ Roslan Ibrahim; Chief Financial Officer, Mohamed Rastam Shahrom; Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Wong, Project Director-Central 1, Zulkifly Garib; and other Senior Management team.

Prior to the excitement and merriment of the festivity, Tuan Bakhtiar Mohd Nor handed over the mock-up keys to eight selected purchasers of Begonia on stage. Anwar Syahrin said, “We at UEM Sunrise are happy and proud to hand-over the first vacant possession of our Serene Heights development to purchasers of Begonia units, today. Begonia received positive take-ups during its initial launch in June 2015 and we congratulate and welcome our Begonia purchasers for the support and confidence in our properties. Begonia owners may now enjoy the serenity and the pristine landscapes that we have created within this environment, exclusively for them.

“Begonia sits on a 15.46 acre of land with a GDV of RM170.6 million. Begonia comprises 153 units of double-storey terrace houses with lot sizes varying from 22’x70’ for intermediate units at 2,204 sq ft; and 22’x75’ for end/corner/angular lot units ranging from 2,380 sq ft to 2,756 sq ft each.

“Our 121 units Acacia homes and 153 units Begonia homes were actually launched simultaneously in June 2015 and both the phases were snapped up like hot cakes within two days. Likewise, our 162 units of Camelia homes, launched in August 2016, are also fully taken up. Our 170 units of Dahlia homes, launched in July 2017, has already seen 80% take-up for Dahlia 1 (total units – 92) and 55% take-up for Dahlia 2 (total units 78). We are confident the remaining units of Dahlia homes will be snapped up soon.

“UEM Sunrise is also offering the “Houzkey” scheme for Serene Heights Bangi development - a special collaboration with Maybank for easy financing for purchasers. HouzKEY is specially designed to assist those who have difficulties in attaining home ownership due to the high initial cost. The key features of HouzKEY includes; low initial investment for your dream home, where only three months security deposit is required; customer can rent throughout the full tenure offered and they can choose to migrate to a mortgage facility when they are ready. Option to purchase the property doesn’t lapse until end of tenure; and customer can apply online and approval is within 24 hours. Through this scheme, the Company managed to generate interest among purchasers and have concluded several sales for its Acacia, Begonia and Dahlia homes,” said Anwar Syahrin during his speech.

UEM Sunrise’s Chief Operating Officer, Development, Dato’ Roslan Ibrahim added, “UEM Sunrise remains committed to developing Serene Heights Bangi into a sustainable and thriving community. With our strong track record in building sustainable communities that add value to the lives of those within our built environment, I am confident that our residents here will happily call this place home”.

PETALING JAYA, 6 July -  PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) wishes to inform that the highway mobile Workshop on Wheels (WOW) service will no longer be offered on all its highways.

The end of WOW services, which was first introduced in October 2012, allows PLUS to re-evaluate and re-assess the effectiveness of the third-party service for the benefit and convenience of its highway users.

Over the years, PLUS has received numerous complaints from highway users on the WOW service including opinions on added value services that can be offered on its highways.

As such, should highway users require immediate assistance on PLUS-operated highways, they are advised to follow these following steps:-

Step 1:

Call PLUS Traffic Monitoring Centre (TMC) via the toll-free line 1800 88 0000 to speak to TMC and provide details and location of the vehicle breakdown.

Step 2:

TMC Officer will then assign a PLUSRonda response team to attend to the user immediately.

Step 3:

Wait for the arrival of the PLUSRonda response team.

Step 4:

PLUSRonda team arrives. Upon inspection, should the vehicle need to be towed, the PLUSRonda team will seek the driver’s permission to tow the vehicle to rest area, toll plaza or any nearest safe locations.

Step 5:

If the vehicle cannot be towed and the response team is unable to be repaired on site, PLUSRonda personnel will seek the vehicle owner’s permission for the vehicle to be towed and fixed by registered agents where all costs will be borne by the owner. 

Step 6:

TMC Officer will once again call the user to seek confirmation if the assigned response team has arrived and identify any further assistance that can be provided.

Towing service for Class 1 vehicles by the PLUSRonda to the nearest rest areas or toll plazas is complimentary.

PLUS also wishes to advise the public to beware of any suspicious individuals who claim they are assigned or sent by PLUS to provide towing or repair services on the highway. Highway users are also encouraged to contact PLUSLine for any suspicious services offered by any third-party tow truckers and agents.

Meanwhile, PLUS is actively looking at collaborations with various third parties to introduce new emergency highway services to provide added values to users on its highways.
