Award recipients will be selected by a panel of independent judges comprising leaders from business, governmental, and media organizations. Judges will look out for entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

Winners of the award categories will be honoured during an awards gala event. Out of the four category recipients, one will be named Malaysia's Entrepreneur of the Year 2009. He or she will represent Malaysia at the world awards programme, where the best entrepreneurs in the world compete for the Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur of the Year Award at Monte Carlo in May 2010.

"The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Award programme is established as the most prestigious global business award in the world. It is unlike most business awards held in Malaysia as this award programme provides the Malaysian entrepreneur with a springboard to a global business platform. By being part of the programme, these Malaysian entrepreneurs are exposed to hundreds of entrepreneurs - the world's "change-makers' - for learning, networking and inspiration as well as providing them with valuable exposure, recognition and networking opportunities with other entrepreneurs in the world," said Mr See.

"We want our Malaysian entrepreneurs to be given such exposure and opportunities. We highly encourage the best entrepreneurs in Malaysia to step forward as outstanding entrepreneurial role models and take up the challenge to make Malaysia proud at the next world awards," said See.

Sheryna.com is new portal for free classified services everyone, company or individual, can publish online classifieds. Sheryna.com.my is a free classified similarly like Mudah.com.my. Here are Sheryna Tips for advertised :

  • Is not recommended to use, for title or description of your classified, short words (internet slang, sms style, etc), because when visitors are searching ads using keywords, your classified will not be displayed!
  • Is not recommended to write a very short description. Classifieds with 100 words will be displayed more frequently than classifieds with 3 words for description, when visitors search using keywords!
  • Bear in mind, when you fill the classifieds registration form, the following special characters
    < > $ % ^ & * / | \ [ ] – { } ; " ´ • or other kind of bullets, are not allowed (secutity reasons!).
  • For title and description of the classified, the words can be lower case, upper case or title case. Ex: 'malaysia', 'MALAYSIA' or 'Malaysia' is OK!
  • For title and description of the classified, do NOT use words typed with mix character case.
    Ex: 'maLAysia', 'MalAYsIA' or 'MaLAYsia' is NOT OK!
    (If the search is made using keywords, this type of classified will not be displayed.)
  • Keywords can be only words with minim 4 characters!
  • Keywords can be lower case, upper case or mix.
  • If use '-' or '+' sign in front of a keyword, keywords become case sensitive. Ex: using '+malaysia' in keywords field => will display only classifieds which contain 'malaysia' word, but not the classifieds which contain 'Malaysia' or 'MALAYSIA'.
    So, ONLY if use '-' or '+' sign make searches for all 3 possibilities from above, to be sure that didn't miss a classified.
  • If you are interested only in cars registered in 2005: in keywords field type 2005, in category box select Used Cars and click Search button.
  • If you are interested only in women clothes: in keywords field type Women, in category box select Clothes/Shoes/Bags and click Search button.
    Exception for this category: if search only clothes for men, can not use the above example (because 'men' has only 3 characters and can not be considered a keyword). But this will be OK: in keywords field type Clothes -Women -Children -Other (must be used title case style!), in category box select Clothes/Shoes/Bags and click Search button.
  • Search bar is a powerful tool. Feel free to try any combination. Is there, so use it!

Kenapa Baru Sekarang?

Salam pertemuan, sesudah sekian lama tak menaip, lalu perjuangan harus diteruskan..Er sebenarnya topik ni dah lama diketengahkan namun sebenarnya perlu bagi kita berfikir secara mendalam. Kenapa baru sekarang? bermaksud kenapa baru sekarang nak memboikot barangan keluaran Yahudi?

Mengikut maklumat produk-produk ini adalah milik/penyokong Yahudi

Jika anda ada sebarang maklumat atau pertanyaan sila hubungi PPIM di Hotline:019-3591000

Sebenarnya sudah lama perkara ini boleh dilaksanakan. Tapi sebagai contoh sudah lama Malaysia sendiri menghalang rakyatnya membuat Passport ke negara rejim itu sendiri. Itu sepatutnya satu teladan yang patut dicontohi oleh kita, rakyat Malaysia. Ingat jangan fikir apa yang negara telah sumbangkan pada kita, tapi sepatutnya kita berfikir apa yang telah kita sumbangkan pada negara..walau tak banyak pun sedikit sudah memadai. Ada apa dengan boikot? Ya,mungkin sekarang permulaan langkah sebagai mencari identiti kita. Mari kita lihat dengan lebih jauh lagi ke mana hala-tuju ekonomi diri dan negara? Kenapa baru sekarang nak menyekat pembelian daripada Tesco?
Bagaimana pula pasaraya besar yang lain daripada luar seperti cendawan tumbuh di negara kita? Sebenarnya semua ini boleh dilihat sebagai kebangkitan rakyat Malaysia sendiri untuk menyokong peruncit tempatan, disamping bersikap positif terhadap kemampuan sendiri dan kebolehan sendiri. Pasaraya tempatan sepatutnya untuk rakyat tempatan bersikap lebih adil dan telus, sentiasa memikirkan nasib dan keadaan persekitaran. Ingatlah keuntungan saja tak menjamin kesetiaan pelanggan, malahan rakyat sekarang lebih bijak memilih pasaraya mana yang lebih banyak membantu rakyatnya. Sokonglah barangan tempatan, disamping tubuhkan latihan bagi usahawan-usahawan muda untuk meningkat naik.
Secara tak langsung usaha ini haruslah secara berterusan, secara sedar atau tidak di ruangan blogspot atau blogger-blogger ada mereka yang mengusahakan perniagaan mereka sokonglah mereka ini...mungkin mereka memerlukan tapak permulaan untuk berkembang...
