TUARAN: “Where there is a will, there is a way.” This proverb clearly shows that one’s will is the key to achieving what they desire.
Armed with determination and high spirits, Mr. Joluin Joiruh has taken steps towards realizing his dream of developing The Joluin Point – a private land area in Kampung Tompinahaton, Kiulu.
“I have always hoped that one day my private land in Tompinahaton will be developed for commercial purposes.
“And coincidentally, the land is located on the Kiulu-Tamparuli highway and has the potential to be developed as a business area,” Joluin told Jesselton Times.
In that regard, Joluin said that for a start, several shop units have been established at The Joluin Point.
This includes food stalls, grocery stores, and car wash services.
He hopes that the area will progress with the support of customers from the Kiulu district and throughout Sabah.
“I am also aware that if others can succeed in the business field, why can’t a native Sabahan stand on equal ground with other races,” he said.
Joluin is a graduate in electrical engineering.
He used to work at SESB, formerly known as the Sabah Electricity Board.
After that, Joluin served as the Chief Engineer at several five-star hotels, including Hotel Rasa Ria Tuaran, and later gained experience at the Grand Dorsett Hotel Labuan.
His current position is the Director of Engineering at Hotel Amari Kuala Lumpur.
