Parking rate at IOI City Mall

During weekend or public holiday the rate is RM4.00 for the first 2 hours. Last year it wad RM4.00 for the first 3 hours. Every subsequent hour the rate will increase by RM1.00.
Based on the receipt above I would need to pay RM5.00 parking fee at IOI City Mall. However because I have made a purchase at TESCO IOI City Mall I have benefited RM1.00 parking rebate from TESCO. Hence the RM4.00 parking fee though my parking time has exceeded 2 hours.

Johor Premium Outlets

On a recent trip to the south we decided to pay a visit to Johor Premium Outlets shopping centre. It is a brand new shopping centre at Jalan Premium Outlets, Indahpura, 81000 Kulai Jaya, Johor. GPS coordinate is GPS 1°36'11"N , 103°37'17"E .

We actually had a hard time in finding it as it was the first time we heard of the place. I was only familiar with Johor Bahru town centre and oblivion to the fact that there has been many new development in an area surrounding Johor Bahru town.

We could find the place with our GPS but still we have to drive round and round to finally able to reach our destination.

Well as I checked again later with google maps as shown below the place is still not mapped in the google maps.



The satellite image from google maps also has not been updated.




However it was nice to have a different shopping experience not like the one that we use to have in the Klang Valley. It is more towards an outdoor shopping experience.

Below are some of the photos we took at Johor Premium Outlets.



Photo below shows a long queue of people to enter the Coach outlet.

Real Property Gains Tax

For a brief period of two years and 9 months from April 1 2007 to December 2009 Malaysian have enjoyed a respite of having to pay Real Property Gains Tax for disposal of real properties and shares in real properties companies.

However starting from the year 2010 government has started to increase the tax rates for disposal of real properties and shares in real properties companies to 5%.

In the year 2012 the tax rates for disposal of real properties and shares in real properties companies within 2 years from date of acquisition has been increased to 10%.

Now this year 2013 the tax rates for disposal of real properties and shares in real properties companies within 2 years from date of acquisition has been increased to 15%.

RPGT for disposal of real properties and shares in real properties companies after 5 years from date of acquisition has been maintained at 0%.

It clearly shows that government wants to further curb real estate speculation activities.

Property prices has increased considerably since the year 2008. For the Uptown Residence project at Damansara Utama the 734 square feet unit is price at RM585K whilst the largest unit of 3,608 square feet is price at RM3.74 million.

haze

Haze is back. My eyes started to get itchy while walking back from the mosque. It reminds me of the post some five years ago. Ribuan Terima Kasih Indonesia.
