EMERGENCY response personnel and relief centres will remain on standby for possible floods or any other emergency until January 2023, says Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

"We were better prepared for floods that happened last month (November), although those floods were not as severe as last year's.Subscribe to our Telegram channel for the latest stories and updates.A KOTA KINABALU (Dec 1): The Sabah State Legislative Assembly on Thursday (Dec 1) approved the budget for 2023 amounting to RM5.The semi-finals will take place on June 14 and 15 while the third-place playoff and final are scheduled for June 18.

"Our preparations in anticipation of the year-end floods were also done much earlier this time," he said in reference to the flood preparations, simulation and training carried out by various related agencies since September.ALSO READ: No proof highway caused floods Amirudin added that the relevant resources would remain on standby (to ensure relief works could be carried out quickly) and to avoid a repeat of last year's incident (when relief aid was distributed late).The 18-acre waterpark was previewed to the media recently where it comprises 24 water slides and 15 key attractions, with some being the first-of-its-kind waterslide experiences in Malaysia – including a Virtual Reality waterslide.On compensation for flood victims, Amirudin said applications submitted by those affected by the recent floods would be processed soon based on existing guidelines.On Nov 25, Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor, who is also the state finance minister, tabled the state budget for 2023, with an estimated revenue collection of RM5."While floods were recorded in hotspots in Meru, Klang, Dengkil and Banting, the level of devastation was not as bad and the duration not as long this time around," he said.The waterpark will allow us to reach out to an untapped eco-tourism opportunity in the Southern Klang Valley region in line with Tourism Selangor’s plan,” said Chu Wai Lune, Chief Operating Officer of Gamuda Land.ALSO READ: Selangor readies climate action plan Amirudin was speaking after the launch of"Batik Selangor" at the Selangor legislative assembly building annexe in Section 5, Shah Alam.(Reporting by Shrivathsa Sridhar in Bengaluru; Editing by Robert Birsel) Article type: free.

The designs and motifs for"Batik Selangor" were done as a collaboration between Selangor Malay Customs and Heritage Corporation (Perbadanan Adat Melayu dan Warisan Negeri Selangor or Padat) and Kraftangan Malaysia's Selangor and Federal Territories branch.It is close to both international airports; the KLIA and KLIA2.Meanwhile, Hajiji, when winding-up the budget debate on Thursday, said the Sabah government would continue to insist on the 40% net revenue owed by the Federal Government to the state as stipulated under the Malaysia Agreement 1963."Batik Selangor" features bunga tanjung, known as Spanish cherry, but with nine petals to symbolise the nine districts in Selangor.It was previously reported that the bunga tanjung motif can be seen in Selangor's official emblems, decor and logos.At the unveiling ceremony, Sanjay Nadarajah, General Manager (Leisure & Hospitality) of Gamuda Land, said, “Where Nature Meets Fun’ forms the essence of SplashMania Waterpark."The idea for this is to popularise the use of batik, but with a design that is unique to Selangor," said Amirudin.."They can be worn at state executive council meetings and formal functions in Selangor to create a sense of uniformity.” The rides and slides in SplashMania are designed by Polin Waterparks and ProSlide Technology who are trusted global leaders as slide developers with exceptional technology and innovative safety records.

"The state legislative assembly has yet to change its dress code guidelines (which presently does not allow batik).When the dress code is amended, attendees can then wear batik to assembly sittings, similar to how it is done at the Parliament (on Thursdays).The Wild Rush waterslide is a mix of back-to-back curves, drops, and vortex loops, quickly accelerating vertical and compound curves throughout the ride from start to finish, which is a 3.7 million per year without any increase, and following several discussions with the Federal Government, the amount was increased in April." Amirudin, who presented clothing with"Batik Selangor" designs to all state executive councillors and senior state leaders, said the clothing would also be presented to assemblymen starting Thursday (Dec 1) and civil servants starting Friday (Dec 2).He added that there are plans for"Batik Selangor" to be introduced to grassroots leaders such as village heads.Meanwhile, the Atlantis VR is an immersive experience beyond just the ordinary waterslide rides.Article type: free."I had stressed that the increase in payment is accepted without prejudice on the basis that it is an interim arrangement," he said.
