The Influences

With all the experiences in life, many years later he realized that his “Never Die” attitude was influenced by his mother, who is now 84. “As far as she was concerned it’s a waste of time to give in to negative thinking. No need to mope about it”, she would say to him.
“I guess I don’t have a career. I don’t have a job. I just do something that I like to do which is property development,” he says with a smile.
After finishing his university education Roslan continued to work at Seniwisma.  One day when a client approached the company to design a theme park, understandably the company handed over the job to Roslan who went on at his usual energetic pace, completing a report with an 8ft x 8ft model  and a multi slide presentation with voice over within two weeks.
This impressed the client so much that he promptly offered him a job in his property development company.
Undertaking two successful launches, the company was suddenly struck by the financial crisis in the 80’s (year 1986 / 1987). Seeing that he may loose his job one day due to the financial crisis and with very few openings for architects , Roslan decided to pursue a part time MBA program.

The Ventures begins and continues

This was a very challenging time for him but as a well known proverb in Chinese  says, that for every crisis an opportunity offers itself. It was during this time that an opportunity to set up an architectural consultancy with two other architects came along and he promptly took up the challenge. In the beginning Roslan had to take a 100% pay cut. However luck was with him and the firm grew from zero to about 40 over staff in a couple of years as the property market recovered. This was how Dato’ Roslan started his first business ventures.
Driven by a passion in what he does, Dato Roslan is driven to develop iconic projects that are crafted meticulously.
“As a developer and an architect, I often find that I am driven to envision projects that are both iconic and unique.” He says as he shares the vision of   his latest project, Ramada Resort Lumut a 5 Star 544 key Iconic Destination resort.

“I recalled a time when growing up in Penang,  I was able to enjoy a lot of fun times in an outdoor environment many children today do not get an opportunity to experience. ”  Dato Roslan revealed that the experiences that have molded his youth went into his latest project, which is the Ramada Resort Lumut, Malaysia
He recalled when he would go hiking up Penang Hill with friends, or camp out at the beach in Teluk Bahang, Penang. He explained that he saw in this project an opportunity for children to experience a more adventurous holiday and where families build lasting memories.
Being a filial Son, a loving husband and a benevolent father of two, he emphasizes that through creating memories together, families become stronger.  Children will always remember the times that their parents spent with them.  That’s basically what he did for both of his sons. “They grew up remembering the many holidays spent together with their parents” he shares.
The launch date of the Ramada Resort Lumut will be by January 2016 when a signing ceremony will be held with the Wyndham Group the world’s largest Hotel group with completion targeted by end 2018,” Dato’ Roslan continues.

夫妻相处的艺术

Share this on WhatsApp相处艺术。家庭的气氛很重要,需要夫妇来经营。家庭气氛好,孩子在这样的环境下成长,人格才能健全。但是现在的夫妻关系好不好?  不好,冲突很大。   我在海口推广中国文化时,有一次跟一群朋友吃饭,了解到同桌的四位女性,三位已经离婚了,一位准备离婚。相逢即是有缘,这个饭可不能白吃,要对得起这些有缘人,所以我就慢慢找机会。跟大家说着话,突然话锋一转,我说:“夫妻相处只要守住一句真言,保证白头偕老。” 那位准备离婚的朋友眼睛瞪得很大,耳朵都竖起来了。我接着就说:“结婚以后,只看对方的优点,不看对方的缺点。” 我这个话讲完,这位朋友眉头深锁,回了我一句话:“蔡老师,好难。”     有那么难吗?   我们不妨看看身旁热恋中的男女,真的印证了一句俗语,“只羡鸳鸯不羡仙”。常常五点半下班,他五点的时候就已经坐不住了,“怎么这么慢,下班后我要跟我女朋友看电影,还要带她去买东西”,每天只想着怎么样让女朋友高兴一点。那个时候心里想着我能为她做什么,所以恋爱的感觉是温暖甜美的。当有一个人处处都替你着想的时候,你会很欢喜,甚至半夜还会笑醒。   …
