Hello there, first and foremost, I would like to say thank you for checking us out. I am thrilled that you stopped by to read some of our stuff!I wanted to tell you that your visit means everything to me and my team. This is a short introduction as to who we are and what we aim to achieve through this website. The main aim of DailyStraits.com is to educate people on the type of careers that people do, and how to start a business from scratch. We are a small news outfit with a penchant to see more long-form pieces within the news sphere. This site is primarily run by journalist June Ramli and several contributors and freelancers. It aims to feature stories from all over the world with a special focus on Malaysia and Australia. Because of the lack of manpower, this is not a breaking news site at the moment. For now, I’d like to think that we are a cross between CNBC and the Rolling Stone magazine. My team and I welcome contributors and we look forward to seeing your piece being published on our website. As we are a new website, it is paramount that our stories get shared a lot on social media. Hence we urge you to hit the like button as often as you can, comment and engage with me and my team from time to time. For press releases, interviews and tech products review requests, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org! I look forward to hearing from you. Till then, thank you for reading.
June Ramli is the editor of DailyStraits.com. She first started her career working with the oldest English mainstream newspaper in Malaysia – The New Straits Times Press Malaysia Berhad.
As a journalist, June has covered politics, business, technology, courts, entertainment, sports, crime, and Malaysian parliamentary sittings.
It was also during this time that she decided to write a research-based book titled: ‘How Millionaires Got their First Break.’
The idea behind her first book sprung when June was working on her very own fashion startup June Saira Lingerie which was inspired by Batik.
Her own entrepreneurial journey, along with six other Malaysian millionaires with self-created brands were featured in her book addressing how they started their business venture from zero to hero. Her maiden book received great traction in South East Asia resulting in her presenting talks on entrepreneurship in Malay at Bandar Seri Begawan twice, courtesy of invites received from the Brunei Economic Development Board and Brunei Shell Petroleum in 2013. This was a one-off back to back gig and was all thanks to her maiden book. Fast forward to 2018, June has written and illustrated a picture book titled: ‘Yaya, Ezzy and Tante June’s Trip to the Shops’ which is available worldwide through Amazon. Besides writing and designing, June is also into coding. Her first game app titled ‘Tapiroo’ was based on an age-old Malaysian game known as ‘Galah Panjang‘.
The game was reviewed by several reputable Malaysian media companies in their respective publications after it was launched in 2013, the same year she moved to Australia from Malaysia. June is also responsible in creating these products, dailystraits.com’s very own app on the Google Play Store or the Apple Store, a novel writing app Toolis, available on the Apple Store and Google Play Store and the products displayed on www.tapiroo.com, yayaezzy.com or at lazybumskincare.com.au.
June is also a seller on Amazon Australia. You can purchase her products as a show of support and they are Yaya, Ezzy, Tante June and Xeno backpacks or her beauty products such as LazyBum Skincare Facial Cleanser, LazyBum Skincare Toner and Moisturiser and Blitz Hair Oil Spray.
June has two university degrees, a graduate diploma in creative writing from UTS in Sydney, Australia and a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Universiti Putra Malaysia in Selangor, Malaysia.
