Paying the bills can waste a lot of time, rushing here and there, looking for parks, only to find others waiting in long lines trying to do the same thing; something so simple can take up a big part of your day.
Relief is in sight for people in Seremban and Negeri Sembilan in the form of the much anticipated opening of the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) at the renovated Angsana building in Ampangan.
UTC's are sprouting up all over the country as Malaysian's love the easy access and "one-stop-pay-all" centre which offers more than just paying the bills.
The opening of the first UTC in Negeri Sembilan at Ampangan will bring in more business for this rapidly growing area. Last month McDonalds opened at a nearby complex and more franchises are expected to open nearby this densely populated housing area.
Operational offices of the Immigration Department, Road Transport and National registration will be based at Angsana as will be various commercial utility companies like Tenaga Nasional Bhd, Telekom Malaysia and SAINS, amongst others.
The renovated complex will also contain a food court and a variety of convenience stores, bookshops and banks as well as some non-governmental organisations, such as Fomca.
It is anticipated that Jobs Malaysia, Mara, the Labour Department and the National Higher Education Fund Corporation, will also be situated within, as will Klinik 1Malaysia, Kedai Kain 1Malaysia and Kedai Buku 1Malaysia.
One of the best things Malaysians like about UTC's and the similar Rural Transformation Centre's (RTC) are that some of the government offices are open until 9pm allowing families to eat out whilst paying the bills.
Naturally, all this will add to the vibrant array of businesses already within the area, which include a newly, specific built food court across the road, computer centres, photo-copy shops, tailors, pharmacies, bulk food suppliers and of course the bi-weekly night markets, the farmers and wet markets.
Established quality restaurants like Peladang Cafe and d'Teratak seafood can all hopefully expect positive benefits from the increased traffic to the area.
