Richard Lim of Zencare Lifestyles Australia remarked of being taken by surprise by the big increase in interest by Malaysian developers towards Retirement Villages and Age Care as a viable long term business.

If before, even 2 years ago, each trip to Malaysia will only see 2 or 3 meetings, this trip inFeb-March, more than 15 meetings with developers were had. A handful of which seems to be highly doable and progressive.

Why the sudden interest?

1. The years of sharing and telling about the RV business? BFM.MY and THE EDGE have good coverage on the topic as well.

2. An educated and exposed generation of Malaysians are aging gracefully and would look towards a gorgeous retirement lifestyle.

3. The realisation that the RV business increases yield even on a ten year scale.

4. Many developers have already made their money and are looking for viable and sustainable legacy business models.

Richard will be back come April-May window (tbc) for a day seminar/conference together with industry experts from Australia.

BRAND EXPERIENCE is different altogether. You don't even have to be a customer to feel the personality and character of the brand.
Example: I don't have any Nike but I can identify and feel the Nike brand. This happens because I am impressed with their brand advertising and especially their tagline JUST DO IT. Also, with their visuals and videos.  I can also identify with the MANCHESTER UNITED brand even though I am not a regular follower or a supporter of the te…
