These images happen on Earth Hour, 28/3: Kota Bharu-Style. Glittering, Sparkle and Luminous. The main road in Kota Bharu radius that incandescent with light were Jalan Temenggong, Jalan Sultan Ibrahim, Jalan Sultan Yahya Petra, Jalan Kebun Sultan and Jalan Pengkalan Chepa. But you have to give credit, it was a ‘sense of wonder’ to the eyes.

leave a comment »

Almarhum Tengku Yahya Petra Ibni Almarhum Sultan Ibrahim (10 Disember 1917 – 29 March 1979) merupakan Yang di-Pertuan Agong Malaysia yang keenam. Diputerakan di Istana Balai Besar, Kota Bharu, Tengku Yahya Petra menerima pendidikan agama semasa zaman kanak-kanak ketika baginda dibesarkan oleh ayahanda saudara Baginda, Sultan Ismail. Tengku Yahya Petra menerima pendidikan awal di Sekolah Francis Light, Pulau Pinang ketika berusia 14 tahun. Selepas empat tahun menuntut di sekolah ini, Almarhum Sultan Ismail menghantar baginda menuntut di England pada 1934.

Baginda berkahwin dengan Tengku Zainab binti Tengku Muhammad Petra ketika berusia 22 tahun pada tahun 1939. Pasangan diraja ini dikurniakan seorang putera dan enam puteri. Putera tunggal Tengku Yahya Petra ialah Sultan Kelantan sekarang, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Ismail Petra. Empat orang puteri Baginda ialah Yang Mulia Tengku Mariam, Yang Mulia Tengku Rozan, Yang Mulia Tengku Salwani dan Yang Mulia Tengku Rohani.

Tengku Yahya Petra telah dianugerahkan gelaran Tengku Temenggong dan Darjah Kerabat Yang Sangat Dihormati (D.K) oleh Almarhum Sultan Ismail pada 21 Julai 1939. Untuk membiasakan diri baginda dengan hal ehwal yang berkaitan dengan pentadbiran, Tengku Yahya Petra telah dilantik untuk memegang pelbagai jawatan utama dalam kerajaan negeri. Baginda ialah Timbalan Presiden Majlis Agama Islam dan Adat Istiadat Melayu Kelantan antara 1941 hingga 1947. Pada 2 April 1944, S.P.B. dilantik sebagai Penolong Ketua Pegawai Kewangan Negeri dan pada 6 Februari 1945, Baginda dilantik sebagai Pegawai Daerah Kota Bharu.

Pada 1945 S.P.B. Tengku Yahya Petra dilantik sebagai Tengku Bendahara oleh ayahanda baginda, Sultan Ibrahim. Tengku Yahya Petra menjadi Presiden Majlis Agama Islam dan Adat Istiadat Melayu pada 1 Januari 1948 hingga 31 Disember 1953. Semasa menjadi Tengku Mahkota, Baginda turut terlibat sama dalam hal ehwal kerajaan negeri dan mengambil berat kebajikan rakyat. Semasa pemerintahan baginda (1948 – 1960), negeri Kelantan berada dalam keadaan darurat dan baginda tetap memberanikan diri dengan melawat kampung-kampung di kawasan pedalaman Kelantan.

Tengku Yahya Petra ditabalkan sebagai Sultan dan Yang di-Pertuan Negeri Kelantan pada hari Ahad, 10 Julai 1960, dengan gelaran “Sultan Yahya Petra”, untuk menggantikan ayahanda baginda, Ke Bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Muhammad IV. Pada 6 Oktober 1966, Sultan Yahya Petra menjadi Kolonel Briged Artileri Malaysia. Pada 22 Julai 1970, Sultan Yahya Petra dilantik sebagai Timbalan Yang di-Pertuan Agong oleh Majlis Raja-Raja. Istiadat mengangkat sumpah diadakan pada 21 September 1970. Kemudian pada 19 Jun 1975, Majlis Raja-Raja telah memilih Baginda sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong Malaysia. Semasa pemerintahan Baginda sebagai Yang di Pertuan Agong, anakanda Baginda, Dulia Yang Maha Mulia Tengku Ismail Petra menjadi Pemangku Sultan. Sultan Yahya Petra mangkat ketika masih menjadi Yang di-Pertuan Agong, iaitu pada 29 Mac 1979. Jasad Almarhum disemadikan di Makam Diraja Langgar, Kota Bharu. Al-fatihah…

Kelantan’s Riverview: The Embellish of JPS Jetty.

leave a comment »

Lakaran artis menunjukkan model projek memperindah tebing Sungai Kelantan dan pembinaan semula serta memperbesarkan Jeti Jabatan Pengairan & Saliran (JPS) Kelantan bagi menggantikan Jeti lama bersebelahan Tambatan D’Raja dan Ridel Hotel Avenue. Kontraktor dilantik ialah Pacific Elite Sdn. Bhd. Imej-imej terbaru menunjukkan kerja-kerja asas pembinaan Jeti Jabatan Pengairan & Saliran (JPS) Kelantan telah bermula pada Disember 2009 dan dijangka siap sepenuhnya penghujung Disember 2010.


Imej dari Bangunan Kastam (lama) menghala ke arah Ridel Hotel menunjukkan kerja-kerja menanam cerucuk sedang giat dijalankan.


Imej Dari Tambatan D’Raja menghala ke arah Ridel Hotel.


Kerja-kerja pembinaan masih lagi pada peringkat asas.


Imej dari Ridel Hotel Avenue menghala ke Tambatan D’Raja.

Apa yang blogger dapat simpulkan, rakyat Kelantan umumnya amat mengharapkan satu bentuk pembangunan syumul dan tidak hanya tertumpu kepada motif pembangunan fizikal semata-mata tanpa meletakan aspek kerohanian sebagai asas dalam mentarbiah rakyat Kelantan agar mereka mendapat kejayaan di dunia dan di akhirat.

P/S: sekadar tambahan: (Harus diingat bahawa projek ini ber’tag’kan “…Satu Lagi Projek Kerajaan…” di bawah satu kementerian iaitu Kementerian Pelancongan… diharapkan projek ini tidak menjadi projek ‘White Elephant’ seperti projek Jambatan Sultan Yahya Petra ke-2 yang juga di’tag’kan “… Satu Lagi Projek Dibawah Kerajaan…”… Jangan jadikan ia sebagai gula-gula politik! Kerana rakyat Kelantan tidak mudah untuk ‘disusukan’…)

Madinatur Raudhah and Bazar Tok Guru. Both are located at the same location, in front of UiTM Kota Bharu City Campus at Jalan Sultan Ibrahim (nearby Post Office and about 150 meters from Tuan Padang Roundabout or ‘Bulatan Tuan Padang’ – formerly known as Bulatan Kijang). The gross built up area is approximately 5.9 acre. The development value of this project is approximately RM185 million.

Total unit of apartment is 570, shop lots or bazaar 450 units, office 60 units. The bazaar will be the largest bazaar in east coast, targeted for local ownership.

Pelan Built-Up Bazaar Tok Guru...

Work-in-progress: The latest photo of the BTG development

 

For your information, according statement from one of the MPKB arcade’s vendor, the construction of both projects have been divided into 2 phases , First phase, the construction of Bazaar Tok Guru as shown above, the project has been hurried because the firm that has been appointed (Sensa Timur) to reconstruct old MPKB arcade into, ‘probably’ MPKB Tower wants to begin their construction as fast as possible causing the vendor of an old MPKB arcade need to be transferred to Bazaar Tok Guru immediately. Second phase, the construction of Madinatur Raudhah has been categorized into second phase project and apparently, the construction not yet to begin its piling process and expected to starts its construction after the progress of Bazaar Tok Guru.

PS: The price – not yet disclosed but the sales price will be very minimal and competitive to give an opportunity for small retailers to own a strategic asset in Kota Bharu town. This project is mainly targeted for local people.
