Johor Bahru, 30 Sept’11;
A high-rise building similar to the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur is being planned for the JB city.
Last year, September, Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the proposed building was "something like the Petronas Twin Towers but not quite like it" and was likely to be located near the Johor Baru Central Complex.
"This towering high-rise, which is likely to be the new landmark of Johor Bahru, will offer a view of not only this city but also Singapore.”
The proposed site for the project is where the Bukit Cagar and Lumba Kuda flats used to stand before they were demolished to make way for the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex at the Sultan Iskandar Building

The simple pleasures of Rawa Island is 16 km off Mersing Johor, a gem of an island discovered by the lucky few. Pulau Rawa is truly a paradise island. There are many caves for exploration and offshore coral reefs rich with marine life.
Rawa Island is an unspoilt coral island, with its white sands and swaying palm trees. The coral garden is teeming with fish and marine life, from coral reef fish to Pelagic fish, a surprise for many people. Giant clams abound, you may see it all but nothing is to be touched. Preservation, conservation, and a marine park to boot, not even dead shells can be taken, so beware look but don’t take.
On Rawa you can find your secluded spot, your new "Power point" to re-energize the soul, while away the hours and feel the energy pouring in.
A number of tiny wooden chalets will be your resting place amongst the palms and flowers. There is a quiet village type tranquility in the place, yes this is the place to detune and get out of gear.
