Updates on 13-03-2019: When one clicks the link to Malaysian Beauty College, it no longer exist in the web. Why was the website being deleted? Click: Malaysian Beauty College
What is Malaysian Beauty College?
After yours truly had published an article about MyBeauty, HERE, there are several glaring amendments have been made to its website a few days ago. The obvious is the deletion of Tourism Malaysia (TM), Human Resources Fund (HRDF) and TRIP as parties to have established MyBeauty. Under this particular section, there is a new addition of a not known entity known as Malaysian Beauty College, HERE. If you were to click on “Our Campus” on the Malaysian Beauty College’s website there is no picture showing its campus, HERE.
According to the above webpage, Malaysian Beauty College is supported by MOTAC, Oriental Mace Group, Tourism Malaysia, Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK), Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) and American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI).
A check from the website of AHLEI, there is no mention about Malaysian Beauty College, HERE.
Hopefully Malaysian Beauty College’s webpage will not be amended after this article is posted.
MOTAC, Tourism Malaysia, JPK and Ministry of Human Resources/HRDF should clarify in what ways they are supporting the Malaysian Beauty College?
The Beauty Courses By “Malaysian Beauty College”
With the exception of the amount for the fees on the courses, there is not much information on the courses except the name of the courses provided. If you were to click “Beauty Courses” on Malaysian Beauty College’s website, you will see “View Details”. When you click the “View Details” section there is no details, HERE.
The Original Version Of The Main Webpage of MyBeauty
The original version of the MyBauty’s webpage is as below. You could see the original versions of thee pages in MyBeauty’s website in HERE.
The original webpage of MyBeauty:
The top picture (the amended webpage of MyBeauty) shows Tourism Malaysia, HRDF, Oriental Mace Group and TRIPS (Tourism Research Insitute For Policies Studies) have been deleted.
Why was the sudden deletion of Tourism Malaysia, HRDF, Oriental Mace Group and TRIP without any explanation? This is extremely strange! The said deletions raised more questions about MyBeauty.
What Is Trip?
TRIPS seems to be part of Malaysia Hospitality College, HERE.
It would appear that TRIPS is part of Malaysia Hospitality College, which is connected to the famous Professor of Economic Tourism Dr Wong Kong Yew @ Leong Kong Yew. After yours truly published the article on MyBeauty, he has now replaced Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, the former KSU of MOTAC, as Chairman of MyBeauty.
The Glaring Amendments
When yours truly published about “MyBeauty”, Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, the then KSU of MOTAC, was its Chairman. A few days ago, in the amended version of MyBeauty’s webpage Professor Economics Tourism Dr Wong Kong Yew is its newly appointed Chairman without any explanation.
As of this date, Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah had already retired as KSU of MOTAC. However, in the above picture of the webpage of MYBeauty, he is still the KSU of MOTAC. This is most misleading to say the least.
There is also an obvious deletion of Tourism Malaysia as the party responsible for advertisement and promotion. The sudden deletion of Tourism Malaysia has also not been explained in MyBeauty’s website.
The Original Version Of MyBeauty Webpage
It must be noted that the original version showed that Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah was the Chairman of MYBeauty, and Tourism Malaysian and MyBeauty were responsible for the advertisement and promotion. The amended version shows only MyBeauty is responsible for its advertisement and promotion.
The Other Glaring Amendment
It is strange that in the original version of MyBeauty’s website, “Dybiotech Berhad” was glaringly not stated. It is a normal commercial practice that all companies will state its current name in all its publications but not for Oriental Mace Group Berhad. The glaring omission of Dybiotech Berhad had caused unnecessary confusion to members of the public at large.
The Original Version
The obvious amendment for this section of MyBeauty’s webpage is “Dybiotech Berhad formerly known as”, which was previously omitted. Perhaps MyBeauty now realised it had made a grave mistake in not stating the current name of Oriental Mace Group Berhad.
Why MyBeauty’s website was amended as follows:
- Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah is no longer the Chairman but still is the current KSU of MOTAC.
- Professor of Economics Tourism Dr Wong Kong Yew is no longer the Co-Chairman but the Chairman of MyBeauty.
- MyBeauty is no longer established by Tourism Malaysia, HRDF, Oriental Mace and TRIPS. It is now only established by MOTAC and Malaysian Beauty College.
- Tourism Malaysia is no longer responsible for MyBeauty’s advertisement and promotion.
- MyBeauty was introudced by MOTAC with the collaboration of Dybiotech Berhad formerly known as Oriental Mace Group Berhad.
- Malaysian Beauty College is supported by MOTAC, Tourism Malaysia, HRDF/Ministry of Human Reesources, Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK), American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI).
MOTAC/Tourism and HRDF/Ministry of Human Resources to explain:
How much fund had been used to establish MyBeauty and support Malaysian Beauty College?
Whether establishment of MyBeauty and support given to Malaysian Beauty College were mooted in accordance with the existence rules set by the government?
MACC should also look into this matter.
Next Change – The Chairmanship of Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, the then KSU of MOTAC, in MyBeauty.
