PENGHANTARAN MAKANAN GUNA DRON HUJUNG BULAN INI

CYBERJAYA, June 18 (Bernama) — Cyberjaya residents will be able to enjoy food delivery service right at their doorstep with the help of drones by the end of the month (June).

It would take 12 minutes for the food to be delivered once an order is placed, said Hamdee Hamdan, the chief executive officer of Average Drone Sdn Bhd, a local company involved in the drone industry since 2014. 

The company will collaborate with Futurise which is managed by Cyberview, a subsidiary firm under the Finance Ministry.

Hamdee said the current plan was to have the food delivery service over a three-month trial period.

The food would be delivered within a two-kilometre distance of the Futurise building here, he added.

Only seven types of food would be offered during the trial period, including noodles, rice, burgers, sandwiches, ‘kuih’ and fruits.

“This is only a test run and after three months we will see how it goes and add on more dishes on the menu,” said Hamdee when met by Bernama at the expo MyDroneX here, yesterday (June 17).

Hamdee said the company had also developed a mobile application that was still in the final draft, to facilitate customers to order their food.

The duration from the time the order was placed until the time the food reached its destination should take no more than 12 minutes, he said, adding that delivery charges would cost RM2.50 per trip.

“Is not so much about the price, it is all also about the time frame since many want quick delivery. We have developed the drone so that it could be flown during the rain, but not in situations when there are heavy rains,” he said.

Hamdee said that the six-propeller drones aptly named ‘Express Food’ and manufactured by the company, were able to accommodate a weight of up to 800 grammes.

“If the response is good and the trial project a success, our plan is to then modify each drone to accommodate a weight of up three kilogrammes,” he said.

MALAYSIA DAY CELEBRATION IN SARAWAK?

Dari yb Hajjah Nancy Shukri

I welcome the move. Malaysia Day celebration is beyond politics. It is to commemorate the true feelings of being Malaysians. Like the years prior to the PH rule, it has always been a celebration held in the Borneo states alternately. The reason it was organised in such a way was mainly because Independence Day that falls on 31st August yearly is significant to Kuala Lumpur, whereas Malaysia Day is synonym to the formation of Malaysia. Without Sarawak and Sabah there will be no Malaysia. Therefore, celebrating Malaysia Day in either Sarawak or Sabah is just an appropriate choice.

Personally, it is also a very healthy move to remind Malaysians about their multi ethnicity that lives under one umbrella called Malaysia is a unique and a beautiful identity to portray to the nation. During the Malaysia Day celebration, both the federal and the state government used to work very closely. I hope to see the great collaboration and a very good esprit de corpes among the federal and state government civil servants. That’s my wish list for Malaysia if it truly will be celebrated in Sarawak.

NUKUK BEDOK PADA MALAM RAYA AIDILFITRI DI KPG PULAU SEDUKU SRI AMAN

Beduk ditukuk atau di palu menandakan waktu solat telah tiba biasa kita dengari. Namun lain pula di Kpg Pulau Seduku, Sri Aman Sarawak dari tahun 1930an hingga kini. Beduk ditukuk untuk meraikan malam hari raya pertama. Kebiasaan ditukuk selesai solat Isyak sehingga pagi raya. Golongan tua, dewasa kanak-kanak saling berebut nak menukuk beduk.

Namun sejak peralihan zaman budaya menukuk beduk makin pupus ditelan zaman. Malah nada atau irama paluannya tak seindah dulu. Malah ramai yang tak tahu menukuk beduk masa kini.

Sejak penduduk Pulau Seduku dipindahkan ke penempatan baru Agropolitan Pulau Seduku,budaya menukuk beduk makin hilang dihati mereka. Mungkin faktor perubahan zaman menyebabkan golongan generasi baru lebih suka dengan budaya baru meraikan malam raya. Kalau dulu malam raya wajib nukuk beduk. Namun kini diganti letupan mercun dan bunga api.

Namun Haji Sulaiman bin Endeng dan beberapa orang generasi tua masih mempertahankan budaya menukuk beduk. Golongan belia pun ada mencuba tapi tak seindah dan seirama paluannya. Bagi saya budaya menukuk beduk harus dikekalkan agar generasi akan datang kenal budaya kaum mereka.

Beduk Masjid Pulau Seduku ini wujud puluhan tahun dahulu. Beduk ini dibuat menggunakan batang kayu sebesar dua pemeluk dan mula dibuat dalam tahun 1930an. Manakala kulit lembu disimpei menggunakan rotan dipermukaan lubang kayu balak yang telah dilubangkan. Kemudian ditala dengan bongkahan kayu kecil untuk menghasilkan bunyi yang merdu dan mantap.

Bagi saya budaya menukuk beduk di malam raya harus dikekalkan untuk tatapan generasi akan datang.
