An initiative by our electrical power supplier, Tenaga Nasional, in promoting Malaysia as the prime holiday destination. They are the boatmen who earn a living by taking tourists to see the famous fireflies of Kampung Kuantan.

A Japanese language teacher was brought from Japan specifically for this purpose. According to her, the boatmen learning process are progressing very well. One of the boatmen mentioned that they understand the important of learning the language as majority of their current tourists are from Japan.

They are planning to introduce Arabic and English classes soon.

More new from The Star.

"I hope that this initiative will be expand to other tourist front liner too, such as taxi drivers, melaka trishaw, boatmen to islands, bus drivers and others. Anyway, this is a good start."
