SIBU, Jan 5: A popular food court, Taman Selera Muhibbah, will be OKU and mother-friendly once major renovation is completed.

According to chairman of Market and Petty Traders of Sibu Municipal Council, Albert Tiang, tender for the renovation project would be called in February.

“The award for the contract would be done in March, where work would begin in April. It is expected to be completed end of December this year,” he said.

Tiang said this time, the food court will have facilities for people with disability such as parking space. There will also be a special room for mothers to change the diapers of babies and toddlers.

“We need to provide facility for young parents, so that is why we come up with this special room,” he said.

He added that the number of stalls will remain at 48 after the renovation works.

Taman Selera Muhibah at Jalan Pedada, which was built about two decades ago, is a great place for dine-out for the whole family and friends.

The food is great and the service top-of-the-range. It is also a great place to meet and socialising, Tiang said.

“When people in Sibu mention about Taman Selera Muhibbah, they are not only talking about delicious,wholesome, affordable, value-for-money meals, but also about unique dining experience in a casual and comfortable ambience,” he continued.

Tiang added that the council will introduce a new layout plan for its Pasar Malam (night market) in order to make the existing business activity more vibrant. A total of 14 new stalls will be added from the existing 178.

“This new stalls are open mainly to young entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 40 years old. The stalls will have new concept or business, such as special food or drinks, and even stalls providing manicure services and temporary tattoos,” he said.

Tiang said those interested to run the new stalls can obtain the application form at the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC). — DayakDaily
