According to the prime minister’s budget speech:


74. The Government will undertake measures to ease rising costs and prices as well as reduce the burden of the rakyat, as follows:

First: Increase the number of Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) nationwide in 2012. KR1M offers 250 types of 1Malaysia products, comprising consumer goods which are up to 40% cheaper. In view of the overwhelming response, the Government plans to open an additional 85 units in 2012 with an allocation of RM40 million;

Third: Extend and promote the Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia which offers popular menu sets at reasonable prices with a maximum of RM2 for breakfast and RM4 for lunch. Currently, more than 700 food operators are participating and this will be extended to 3,000 operators by end-2012. To further expand this initiative, the Government encourages all cafeteria operators in Government offices* and the private sector to implement the Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia.

Thumbs up for low-cost meal

KUALA LUMPUR: The campaign for the 1Malaysia People’s Menu has received overwhelming response from restaurants.

According to the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry, there were now 1,004 restaurants taking part in the programme as at Oct 14.

“We were supposed to achieve the target of 1,000 restaurants by December, but we achieved it three months earlier,” he told a press conference after a lunch with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at Restoran Ukhwah in Lorong Medan Tuanku yesterday.

“The Prime Minister came just to eat. He wanted to taste the food eaten by ordinary folk. He also wanted to find out whether the lunch menu served at RM4 and breakfast at RM2 under the programme were really of quality,” he added.

Paying less for more: Najib smiling as he pays for his meal at Restoran Ukhwah in Lorong Medan Tuanku, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday.

Ismail Sabri said Najib’s lunch experience at the restaurant also proved wrong the perception of some quarters that cheap food at the eateries were of low quality.

He added that in the peninsula, the restaurants could offer breakfast at a maximum of RM2 and lunch at RM4. In Sabah and Sarawak, it’s RM2.50 for breakfast and RM5 for lunch.

Ismail Sabri urged more restaurant operators to take part in the programme and offer food at affordable prices while helping people reduce their financial burden.

Restoran Ukhwah serves a RM1 breakfast menu that includes teh tarik, roti canai and a piece of kuih while the RM3 lunch menu includes a plate of rice with meat and one vegetable dish and a syrup drink.

Asked how the restaurant could maintain its profit at such rates, Ukhwah Cooperatives president Datuk Rahim Baba said they carried out volume selling while offering other menus at regular prices.

Regular customer Ramlee Salleh, 76, said he ate at the restaurant with his wife Zaleha Salleh, 63, and grandson daily to reduce their financial burden.

Ramlee, who has two wives, said he earns RM700 a month as a petition writer and gets a RM400 pension.

“But it is still not enough for us and I sometimes just eat bread,” he added.

Najib gives thumbs-up to restaurant’s 1Malaysia People’s Menu

KUALA LUMPUR — Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today praised the taste and quality of the food served at a restaurant participating in the 1Malaysia People’s Menu programme.

The prime minister expressed his satisfaction after spending almost half an hour, enjoying lunch of rice with ayam masak merah, ayam masak kicap, daging goreng, fried taugeh and papadom at Restoran Ukhwah in Lorong Medan Tuanku, here.

Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who accompanied Najib, said: “The prime minister came just to eat….he wanted to taste the food eaten by ordinary folk.

“He also wanted to find out whether the lunch menu served at RM4 and breakfast at RM2 under the programme were really of quality.”

He said Najib’s lunch experience at the restaurant also proved wrong the perception of some quarters that cheap food at eateries participating in the programme were of low quality.

“The ministry is always monitoring for the quality of food served…the prime minister praised the food served just now, which he said was delicious and of quality.

“I think the prime minister was very happy to taste what the ordinary people eat on a daily basis and it also shows his concern for the people’s welfare,” Ismail Sabri said.

The 1Malaysia People’s Menu programme was launched on July 7, aimed at lessening the people’s daily expenses while enabling them to enjoy breakfast at the ceiling price of RM2 and lunch at the maximum of RM4.

Ismail Sabri said the programme had received encouraging response with the target of 1,000 restaurants by the year-end achieved earlier when 1,004 participated in the programme nationwide.

Of the total, Perak has recorded the highest number with 152, followed by Selangor (137), Terengganu (123), Kedah (104), Pahang (103), Sarawak (64), Penang (61), Johor and Sabah (52), Kuala Lumpur (46), Kelantan (41), Negeri Sembilan (34), Melaka (18), Perlis (12), Labuan (3) and Putrajaya (2).
Ismail Sabri said for public convenience, the ministry would advertise the list of the participating eateries in the newspapers tomorrow.

He hoped more eateries would participate in the programme but the condition is that they must served balanced meals. — Bernama

FREE 1Malaysia Email, I’m giving FREE 1Manusia Email!

Thursday, April 21st, 2011 4,413 views

Free 1Malaysia Email that need RM50mil investment? Wow that’s such a big amount of money that could be invested into something more useful to the Malaysian rather than giving email which we could easily singup from Gmail or Hotmail with plenty of storage?

The question everyone asking is, why do we need this when any service providers will give you a free e-mail account. Isn’t it true?

I really agree with Chief Minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng to give free WIFI instead of Free Email which is not really benefit to the citizen.

CM Lim said, ‘Give free wi-fi, not free email. What’s the point of free email when we can get them from Yahoo, Google and Hotmail?’ He also expressed his concerns regarding privacy issues.

1Malaysia e-mail accounts for Malaysians over 18

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians aged 18 and above will be assigned an e-mail account each to receive statements, bills and notices from the Government.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who announced this yesterday, said the 1MY E-mail initiative would allow “direct and secure” communication between citizens and the Government while enhancing the delivery of government services to consumers and businesses alike.

Tricubes Bhd is collaborating with Microsoft to develop the 1Malaysia E-mail project.

The company will spearhead the private RM50mil investment that also includes the development of a web portal as a one-stop centre for government services providing value-added services such as social networking, checking of bills online and payments.

Tricubes chief executive officer Khairun Zainal Mokhtar said the company was still conducting stress tests for the website.

“Hopefully, we can get it ready by July,” he told a press conference at the fifth progress update of the Economic Transformation Programme here yesterday.

Khairun said the portal was different from the MyEG website, which focused on the payment of bills and summonses, as it would allow interaction between people and the Government.

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit, responding to queries said the 1Malaysia E-mail would not be made compulsory.

Tricubes launches myemail.my

KUALA LUMPUR, April 20 — Tricubes Berhad has launched the myemail.my “Citizen Inbox” service with registration to begin at the end of April despite a furore whether the RM50 million project is necessary for citizens to communicate with the government.

The government has already stated the service is voluntary and no public funds will be used to finance the project.

Tricubes is using Microsoft Corp’s Windows Live platform for the email service, which will offer 25GB of mailbox space. The service will also allow users to create documents using Microsoft Office products, which is the most widely used office suite software worldwide.

Windows Live is the collective brand name for a set of services and software products from Microsoft, part of their software plus services platform.

The features offered by Tricubes are already available in Microsoft’s free Hotmail service.

The government has stressed that it is not funding the private-sector initiative despite inviting bids for the project last November.

However, project developer, Tricubes, is in danger of being delisted from the stock exchange for financial irregularities.

The website domain was registered by Tricubes on March 10, 2011 for a year.

“Myemail is an email messaging service open to all Malaysians. If you are a citizen, then you are entitled to a myemail account. Registration is simple and approval is within 24 hours.

“With a myemail account, you can get the latest news or even events by the government directly to your inbox. Be the first to know of new government initiatives, services or policies,” the website added.

As of 5pm, the hashtags #1malaysiaemail and #Tricubes are still among the top ten Malaysian topics on microblogging site Twitter, where Malaysians have ridiculed the email plan since it was announced yesterday.

The 1 Malaysia email project is not the first free email project in the country. WauMail was officially launched on July 12, 1999 and was available in four languages — Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mandarin and Tamil.

WauMail was a joint-venture between Technology Park Malaysia and Intelliweb Sdn Bhd. Its website was hacked in 2001 when it had some 600,000 users. It was later turned into a paid email service in 2002. At present, it no longer exists as an email service.
