20th Century Fox to open theme park in Malaysia

American film studio 20th Century Fox will open its first ever theme park, the Twentieth Century Fox World, at Malaysia’s Resort World Genting in 2016.

Resort World Genting is an entertainment hub which also host the only legalised casino in the country and one of the world’s biggest hotels (by room numbers). It also had a theme park which is now closed for the the upgrade.

Not sure if it’s the right choice, I always thought we have too many theme parks in the region. But the success of Universal Studios in Singapore proves me wrong, and the LegoLand in southern Malaysia seems to be doing reasonable well too.

Squash Olympic Bid

A video to promote squash, featuring world #1 Ramy Ashour of Egypt and Nicol David of Malaysia. The World Squash Federation (WSF) has been working for a decade for the racquet sport to be included in the Olympic Games (next for 2020)…

For various reasons there are limited numbers of sports that could feature in the Olympics (which are reviewed after every edition). There’s one slot left for the 2020 Games which will be decided by an IOC poll later this year.

While squash makes some fair points the voting is often decided by political and financial reasons. If the sport is not popular in one of the richer (or powerful) countries the chance of inclusion looks dim, regardless of how popular it is elsewhere.
