Hello Again, And Welcome!
A
s 2013 draws to a close,
I present to you our final
newsletter of the year. This
is the time of year that we can all sit
back, take a well-deserved break and
look at what we have achieved in the
past year. 2013 has been a glorious year
for our respective clubs, with increased
membership and a wealth of events that
have taken place over the months.
At this time we can now look forward
to the future with a tingling anticipation
of what is in store for 2014. When we
have had what is really a superb year,
and all is said and done, it is sometimes
hard to imagine a more wonderful year
ahead. Yet that is what awaits us.
The upcoming holidays are a time
for family relaxation and also a time
when we can give ourselves a pat on
the back for the goals we achieved and
still forgive ourselves for the ones we
might have missed. There isn't anyone
in the world who can honestly say that
he or she hit every target every time,
but celebrating those that we hit is an
achievement in itself.
Then suddenly the New Year is upon us
and it seems that once again the world
is our oyster. It is like a new dawn with
a vista open before us that gives hope
and inspiration for love and friendship
– probably the two most important
things for every human being – success
in our business activities as well as our
leisure ones, and continued good health
and fitness. Our relationships with our
families and friends will continue to
grow and expand.
2014 will be our best year ever. There
is no doubt in our minds.
As we look forward to the year ahead
with excitement and anticipation, I
wish you all the peace of the holidays
and every blessing and happiness that I
wish myself.

Taking stock of the past year with a
view to improving the coming year.
N
o one in this world can buy back the past. So enjoy each
moment before it goes away. Our life experiences make
us who we are, what we are. To honestly “know thyself”,
let’s try taking a look at the year gone by – the things you did, the
emotions you experienced.
Happiness means different things to different people. As of now,
happiness for many is the upcoming holiday season and the fabulous
New Year parties we’ve been planning. We had some amazing gettogethers last year, but I’m sure the ones in the next year are going to
be even better. Cheers to that!
Let’s see what we’ve learnt from the last year…
FRIENDSHIP IS AMAZING
We are all friends at our clubs, and some of us are close like family.
The past year has been wonderful in terms of the time we’ve spent
together, the meals we’ve shared, and the easy conversation that has
flowed at the clubs. We’ve all been there for each other and that is
simply wonderful. Look forward to more of such amazing bonding
next year. Our members are amazing people.

FOCUS IS EVERYTHING
When you look back at your success stories in business last year, you
will notice that the biggest common factor is focus. The deals that
were completed without any hiccups were the ones we’ve focused
on. Of course, it helps to know those whom you are doing business
with. At the same time, those among us who surpassed us all will
be our shining examples for next year. We’ll all look forward to
getting some useful tips from you. Here’s to more business and career
success, people!
"Think positive
thoughts to get
positive energy
from the universe.
"
DEVELOP REBOUND ABILITY
When you look back at the past year, there must be some moments
that you would rather forget. We all have them. Bad news, rumours,
scandals – disturbing moments all; just forget them. We are a happy
bunch here, and we are looking forward to happier times next year.
So let your hair down, drop your guard a bit, relax that stiff upper lip,
and join the party!
KEEP SMILING
Start your day with a smile and the day will smile back at you. Think
positive thoughts to get positive energy from the universe. (And yes,
a smile is the best way to get back at those who don’t like you.) So
grin a bit more. Or a lot more!
HEALTH IS WEALTH
Some of us may have had health scares, or simply noticed that
walking up the stairs takes a little bit more effort than before! Each
passing year reminds us that time marches on. But that does not by
any chance mean that we can’t have fun! We’ve got so many facilities
at our clubs. Use them! Sports are an excellent way to forge lifelong
friendships. Start now, if you haven’t already. Golf, football, cricket
– let’s just play. Pick up a new sport. Improve your game, improve
your health. Let’s welcome the New Year with a resolve to be fitter,
and better.
LOVE YOUR FAMILY
All the fun we had, all the good times in the last year, nothing would
have been possible without the support of our families. They have
been our pillars of strength throughout. As the year draws to a close,
it’s time we gave our families their much deserved credit. (Plus,
you have to keep your spouse happy if you plan to play golf on the
weekends, too.) We’ve also all become part of one great family, and
that’s absolutely marvelous. Let’s keep the love alive, next year and
every year after that.
Looking back at the last year will make you smile at the good times,
and help you bring resolution to whatever took place that was less
pleasant. Just remember: Tomorrow is a new day. And the next
year will come with its own promises. Let the year live up to those
promises. Have a wonderful 2014, friends!

F
rom vinyl records to
cassettes to CDs to digital
music players, the way
we listen to music has definitely
been an evolution worth looking
back on.
There is no denying the fact
that music has always been one
of the most important sources
of entertainment. Music is
so addictive that it is hard to
imagine our lives without it. In
fact, listening to music reduces
stress levels and refreshes
minds. This is why the invention
of music players has completely
revolutionised the world of
entertainment.
.............................
It all began when Thomas
Edison unveiled the first ever
device capable of recording and
reproducing sound – his famous
phonograph – in the year 1877.
Many years later, in the 1940s,
the vinyl record was invented
and became the first music
player to reach the masses, and
filled their lives with music. It
was a development of the old
gramophone, with a vinyl disc
that was used for recording and
reproducing sound.

Evolution
of Music
Players
With the passage of time, tape reels and then
8-track tapes came into existence in the late
1970s. This tape was made of ¼-inch magnetic
tape housed in a plastic cartridge. It became
the most popular and successful commercial
music player of its time, and was a common
sight in cars during the automobile boom of
the 70s. Eventually, with the advancement of
technology, compact cassettes were launched
for music lovers. Such cassettes consisted
of a comparatively small plastic case with
magnetic tape inside them. They were easier
to operate and served better than the previous
media.

1990
2000 - Present
The introduction of compact discs in the early 1990s was
the next big step in the evolution of music players. A CD
is a metal disc coated in clear plastic, which has digital
data written onto it with a laser. Later on, CDs were also
used to store pictures, computer documents and songs in
digital file format. Their popularity soared because they
could be played on computers, VCD and DVD players,
besides the original CD players. CDs have really played
a key role in entertaining innumerable people, and we all
remember them fondly, don’t we?
Thereafter came the clearest and the best quality digital music
players, which can really be credited for entertaining the world.
Apple’s iPod was the next invention, introduced just eight years ago
although it seems like ages, and created a big sensation in the world
of music players. With a storage capacity of 1,000 songs, a compact
size, and easy portability, the original iPod garnered worldwide fame
in no time.
Nowadays, trendy smartphones have taken over iPods in serving
people with their amazing capabilities. Along with features like
memory, networking and processors, they have special file transfer
properties wherein one can easily download and upload songs
through the internet, in digital format. Additionally, personal
computers, laptops and tablets with music software have also added
to the charm of music in the lives of people everywhere.

Ever Seen An Archer Shooting Arrows
Or A Jockey Riding A Horse?
Or Both At The Same Time?
That’s Horseback Archery!
H
orseback archery is an interesting
sport, as it is actually a combination
of two sports. We are all well aware
of the sport of archery, where the archer
shoots arrows from a bow. We have also
seen the renowned sport of jockey horse
riding. Both these sports are very popular
and need tremendous skills and practice to
be performed. But when performed together,
they become the magnificent spectacle of
horseback archery.
It originated during the period of the Eurasian
nomads, Iranians and Indians in ancient times,
as a method of warfare, and later became
popular among the Mongols and the Turks
in the Middle Ages. However, its popularity
declined in the 16th century with the invention
of firearms for horseback cavalry. But with
the passage of time, horseback archery is now
regaining popularity as a sport in various parts
of the world.
Originally, it was not a sport, but a skill used
by ancient people to fight their enemies or to
hunt for food. But now people have adopted
it as a sport, and there are professional
horseback archers who are highly passionate
in honing their skills. Also, horseback
archery competitions are organised in order
to let the archers demonstrate their skills and
entertain the audiences. This sport requires
great attentiveness and presence of mind, as
the archers need to take an angle and shoot
the bows at the target – all while riding on
horseback at galloping speed.
Sports
Guide
10
................................................................................................
..............
Now there are specialised academies with
professional trainers available for those
who are willing to learn this sport. They use
advanced techniques, high quality horses and
bows and arrows to teach modern forms of
horseback archery. These modern forms are
much more entertaining than past techniques
and are worth learning by those who have
the interest and resources. The experts also
organise regular competitions to keep the
learners enthusiastic and on their toes.
For beginners in horseback archery, one first
needs to gain expertise in normal archery and
horse riding, individually. Once that level is
completed, one must start honing one’s skills
of hitting a target from the bow while galloping
on horseback. It’s no surprise that horseback
archery is an intricate sport that requires a lot
of both mental and physical strength. But it
serves a person with the benefits of being very
concentrated and dynamically agile, and is
thus worth the effort.

TRAVEL LUGGAGE
&
CHECKLIST
N
ext to deciding on where you are going and how you will get
there, choosing the type of luggage to bring for your trip is
probably one of the most important things that you will need to
think about. With so many options to choose from, it can all become rather
overwhelming. What type of suitcase do you need? Do you want one with
or without wheels, do you need hard shell or soft sided bags? There are
pros and cons for each of these.
Discover The Various
Types Of Luggage To
Suit Your Needs And
What To Pack For Your
Trip
HARD CASES, SOFT CASES
Soft sided cases are reasonably flexible and easy to store, but can offer
less protection and may not be as waterproof. It is no fun arriving home
from your trip and opening your case to find all your souvenirs in little
pieces! Hard shell cases tend to offer more protection, but may be heavier
than their softer counterparts. And they can also be quite a bit trickier
to store.

BUT WHAT TO BRING?
Another dilemma can be what to take on an overseas trip.
One would say, don’t take too much. Here are suggestions for
the top 10 things to pack:
Copies of travel documents
DUFFLE BAGS
A large cylindrical bag usually made of strong
cloth with a drawstring closure at its top, a
duffel bag is extremely light yet holds quite a
bit of stuff. They may not be as glamorous as
your hard shell case with wheels, but they are
extremely practical, especially for short trips.
Originally favoured by military personnel,
today’s duffel bags are more colourful and
fashionable.
Make sure that you have copies of your passports, itineraries, tickets and
travellers cheques, just in case you find that these have been misplaced or
worse. Also have a list of contact information and your credit card contact
information with you.
Travel guidebooks and language guides
Local money
Don't forget to change your money to some local currency before you
leave. Take a small money belt with you; this is handy, as it can be tucked
under your clothes and you can keep your passport and other important
documents with you, as well as your cash.
Sample size
toiletries
No matter where you are
going, you will generally
be able to pick up shampoo,
conditioner and soap.
There’s no need to bring
your big bottles from home.
A sleeping mask
and earplugs
Many a bleary eyed traveller
has stumbled off the plane at
their destination only to spend
the next two days exhausted
because the passenger next
to them snored louder than a
passing train.
Your sense of humour and adventure!
Electronic devices
HAND LUGGAGE
Carry-on luggage is something that is able
to be stowed either in the overhead locker
or under your airplane seat. The maximum
measurements for carry-on luggage,
recommended by the International Air Travel
Association, is 56 cm in length, 45 cm in
width and 25 cm in depth. Ladies can take
a handbag as well as their carry-on piece
on board a flight with them. Remember that
these are recommendations by the IATA, and
may differ slightly from airline to airline.
Phone, laptop and camera along with their chargers
Contact information
Address book and calling card to keep in touch.
Reading material
Take some books, magazines
and a pen on board so that
you can be entertained for
hours till you reach your
destination.

DRAWING
&
Kolams
Kolam is a form of painting that is drawn
using rice powder, chalk or chalk powder,
as well as sandstone powder. This painting
style originates from South India, and is also
practiced in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia
today. It is an art form traditionally practised
by women and girls.
There are numerous types of kolam patterns,
including mathematical and geometric line
drawings formed around a matrix of dots.
Free-form artwork such as animals as well as
any closed shapes can also be drawn.
1 Draw The Outline
Draw the outline of your kolam on
the ground using chalk powder or
even a piece of chalk.
2 Fill In The Outline
Fill in the outlined parts with the
coloured chalk powder or coloured
rice, etc. as you desire.
3 Finish
Finish off your kolam and show it
off to your guests!

DECORATING
S
Christmas Trees
On the other hand, a Christmas tree is a decorated
tree that is traditionally associated with
Christmas celebrations. There are different types
of Christmas trees, usually evergreen conifers.
These trees include spruce, fir as well as pine. You
can also find artificial trees being sold in stores.
These trees are usually made of PVC and can
come in uncommon colours and even with builtin lighting.
Traditionally, Christmas trees were decorated
using edible items such as dates, apples and
nuts. During the 18th Century, people started
using candles to illuminate their Christmas
trees. Below are several traditional items that
you can use to decorate your Christmas tree.
1
Bright Tinsel Garlands
2 Angels Surrounding
The Tree
3
Traditional Baubles
thin blown glass baubles or large
hand-painted baubles
4 Striped Candy Canes
Other things that can be used to complete
a Christmas tree include bits of cotton to
represent snow. You can experiment with
different lighting schemes until you find
one that you like. It is important that you do
not skimp on the Christmas lights. For each
vertical foot of your tree, ensure that you have
a string of a hundred lights. If you are going
to use a real tree, after you have cut it, put it in
water in order to keep it fresh and clean.
Use the above tips to draw your kolam or
decorate your tree to make the holidays a
special day of enjoyment for your whole
household – and your guests!

Diwali
Introducing the traditional Indian delights
of the Diwali celebration
The festival of lights, Diwali, is fast
approaching, and it’s the time of the year
to meet friends, share joyous moments and
indulge in a never-ending feast filled with
scrumptious delicacies specially made for
the occasion.
Diwali is celebrated in India and also in other
countries including Singapore, Indonesia,
Malaysia and even in the UK, these days. The
grand festival marks the occasion when the
evil lord Narakasura was destroyed by Lord
Krishna and peace was restored in the land.
Hindus, Sikhs and Jains celebrate the five-day
festival with oil lamps, flamboyant clothing
and, most of all, dozens of sweets to sweeten
the occasion.
An evocative spread of Diwali food brings
back fond memories and is closely associated
with the festival. The variety of items ranging
from Laddoos, Halwas to Mithai and Kheer
will simply entice even non-lovers of these
items to shed their inhibitions and take part
in the festive occasion, tasting every delicacy
prepared.

Diwali delicacies – what ’s special?
The huge variety of sweets and savory items
prepared in the Indian subcontinent on this
day will flabbergast anyone with its sheer
number. Many of these festive morsels are
also a familiar sight among Malaysians who
celebrate Diwali. Every food item will be
accompanied with a ‘Mithai’, a sweetmeat
which is enjoyed throughout the day in small
morsels. ‘Moti Laddoos’, ‘Burfi’, ‘Pista/
Badam Halwa’, ‘Mawa Kachori’ and ‘Moti
Pak’ are among the chief sweet variants
familiar to Indians, made for the occasion.
A customary practice of visiting friends and
family with decorated sweet boxes made at
home prevails in India. The assorted boxes
will be filled with all types of morsels and
neatly packed to be given out. Sweets are
accompanied with Mathiya, lentil flour discs,
karanji or ghughra, sev, puris and chirote
which are deep fried discs. Murukku, a
crunchy side dish and Rava Adhirasam, an
exclusive sweet made with Rava and ground
sugar, are speciality South Indian delicacies
that are also popular in Malaysia.
Sheera is another popular sweet made using
cashew nuts, cardamom and raisins.
During the festive occasion, the number of
sweets made in households will be nothing
short of flamboyant, and cooking Diwali
food is a social event where women in the
neighbourhood join in side by side with their
neighbours. Celebrating Diwali with coloured
sweets and savouries marks the customary
tradition, as people express their joyous mood
through delicious food items that have left a
long lasting impression in Indian culture not
just on the subcontinent, but around the world
and in Malaysia as well.

Monthly Pony Activities
for Kids
Every month, the Club hosts an “Own A Pony Day” for the
children, which usually falls on a middle Sunday of the month.
Half a day of interactive fun with the ponies, the event is meant to
familiarise children with the handling of ponies, to build up their
confidence in equestrian activities.
Also happening monthly is the “Pony Club Rally”, which features
learning via fun activities. The Rally, however, covers more indepth topics with a bit more focus, for children who are further
along the equestrian journey of discovery.

Golf Course
Renovation
Update
Hole 9: View from back of the green
#8
Keeping the buggies away from the grass also will tremendously help
the course in maturing beautifully. If we help these juvenile grasses in
their early days, they will mature into a golf course that we all can be
proud of.
Hole 9: View from approach
Currently, two holes are under renovation. The planting of par 4, Hole
#12 is now under progress. We had just completed the stolonization
(planting) of the fairway, rough and the river’s slope. The grow-in
process will take about two months before play is permissible. At this
hole, the left side green bunker was split into two to make room for a
bigger putting area. A new fairway bunker is in place on the left of the
landing area at about 200 metres from the blue tee. For the right side
of the hole, all three bunkers remain. In total, Hole 12 will have six
bunkers, the most of 18 holes to date.
The new Hole 9 was opened on 29th August prior to the Merdeka
holiday. Amidst the long Raya holiday, the team managed to complete
the grow-in and the preparation on time. We hope this new addition to
our Bukit Jalil course will enthral all members alike. So far this is the
7th complete hole being renovated.
Green 12: Green complex in progress
Unrepaired divot
Unrepaired ball marks
Even though the hole was opened for play, please note that the turf
is still under the grow-in process. Most of the grass is only two
months old and still young. Players should be cautious and give
more attention on golf etiquette, especially the kind about preserving
the course. To repair the ball marks on greens, replace the divots in
fairways, avoid taking divots on practice swings and avoid dragging
shoes whilst walking, will help the young course to establish faster.
Hole 5: Scrapping and shaping in progress
We started closing Hole 5 for renovation at the end of August. Presently,
our team is scrapping the old turf and cutting the mounds previously
dumped on the right side of the fairway beside the small stream. We
hope we can shape back the hole to its previous contour, giving more
perspective of the water hazard.

Refurbishment of the
Indoor Arena
First of all, two backhoes began stripping the existing sand of the
Indoor Arena. Then a back pusher loaded the sand onto two lorries
that carted it away to the riding school arena and the sand storage
yard. What was going on? It was the beginning of the refurbishment
of our Indoor Arena!
The ground of the riding school needed levelling again. To do this,
we brought in a backhoe to level the sand in the school area as the
process of sand-removal continued in the Indoor Arena. A compactor
and an installation rake arrived at the site, where they proceeded to
compact the ground.
Just how massive is our arena? In total, 71 loads – an amazing 781
tons – of quarry dust was installed. On top of this, another tractor was
brought in to finish the raking, whereupon sand-mixing commenced.
By the end of the process, a matching 781 tons of sand had been laid
in the Indoor Arena. Then new doors were designed and fabricated.
In preparation for opening those new doors to our members, came
the process of clearing, cleaning and fixing up of the site before it
was watered using a tanker. The Indoor Arena is now open for the
inspection and enjoyment of our Club members!

Swimming Competition at Bukit Banang Golf
(18th Aug 2013)
More than 10 swimming teams from throughout the state of Johor,
comprising over 150 participants, took part in the MSNJ/PRAJ Swimming
Circuit 1st Leg at BBGCC. All swimmers except those in the SUKMA
team and the National Swimming Competition were eligible for this
competition. There were 4 groups: 8 years and below, 9 & 10 years, 11
& 12 years, and 13 & 14 years old. The teams arrived as early as 7.30am
and the participants reported themselves with great anticipation to the
organiser, Persatuan Renang Amateur Johor.
Among the most promising swimmers was 9-year-old Gloria Gracia
Wong Sze. Despite a handicap on her left arm, she demonstrated great
determination and the spirit to compete with all the other swimmers. She
swam with only her right hand and completed the 100m
freestyle at last placing.
The competition began in the cool,
breezy morning; but at about 10.30
am, the sun came out. Yet despite the
heat, the parents took the opportunity
to picnic and camp under the canopy
provided. The crowd grew larger in the late
morning as the competition intensified.
And then, after an hour’s break for lunch
at 12.00 noon, the event completed at
4.30pm with a rousing and emotional
prize-giving ceremony.

Majlis Buka Puasa bersama
Anak-anak Yatim (Sek. Keb.
Beranang) at Staffield (2 Aug 2013)
nd
It was a joyous occasion when 30 orphan children from Sek.
Keb. Beranang joined us for a buka puasa event. In addition to a
scrumptious meal to break fast together, our club contributed “duit
raya” of RM70 to each child plus “baju raya”, school stationery and
a mini pouch to hold their personal belongings.
Cultural Practices
Our golf course recently began a vertical-cutting programme to reduce the thatch
on our fairways. What is it and why is it necessary? Vertical cutting is a remedial
mechanical process utilised to remove excess thatch, reduce the turf canopy density
and extract organic from the turf at or beneath the plant crown area. What this means is
that excess organic matter is removed from the turf. If this is allowed to build up, it can
affect the root development of the turf as well as breed pests. When the vertical cutting
process is completed, our members will be treated to a healthier, more playable course.
This programme is to be completed by the end of this year.
