Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man hosted a special Hari Raya Aidilfitri gathering for the Council’s 2000-odd staff on Friday, July 1 at the Ipoh Town Hall.
The theme was ‘Berhari Raya di Kampung’ to reflect the affinity of Hari Raya with the kampong. It is, in essence, the true spirit of Hari Raya celebrated collectively in the kampong.
“Throughout my tenure at Ipoh City Council, the only word that could describe how I feel is lucky. Having a multi-ethnic staff working together under one roof is a joy. We all share the same aim, that’s to turn Ipoh into a city that is looked upon for its progress, beauty and cleanliness,” said Zamri.
“I hope we’ll maintain this status quo, as Ipoh is on the rise and is about to become Perak’s signature,” he added.
The joyful event concluded with Zamri giving away kuih raya (raya cookies) to everyone present, including media representatives. He took the opportunity to take photos and selfies with those present.
