Tourism Appreciation Nite


Tourism Appreciation NiteTourism players in Perak were entertained to a dinner-cum-beach party at the Lost World of Tambun recently.

Besides the need to celebrate, the occasion was also to recognise the exemplary services rendered by their employees with the prestigious, “Pride of Workmanship Award” which made its debut that evening.

The 21 winners, selected on merits, received their certificates from the Executive Councillor for Tourism, the Honourable Puan Nolee Ashilin Dato’ Mohd Radzi.

It was indeed a proud moment for them as some, like those in the hospitality industry have been on the frontline for over two decades. They had never expected to be given such recognition considering the job they performed.

“I am simply over the moon,” said one recipient who has been a doorman at one top-notch hotel in Ipoh.

The event was organised by the Perak Tourism Association (PTA). Association President, Hj Mohd Odzman Abdul Kadir, concluded that the participation of major tourism players meant that they were willing to promote the state and to enhance the productivity of the tourism industry.

“PTA is willing to be the liaison and coordinator towards achieving this goal,” he said in his opening remarks. “The association plans to organise two promotional trips this year; one to Singapore and the other to Fukuoka, Japan.”

The two promotional trips were given the green light by Nolee who, in her return speech, pledged financial aid for the association from the state.

Nolee thanked those who had helped organise the recent Ipoh International Waiters’ Race and the organising committee of the Tourism Appreciation Nite. “You’re simply wonderful,” she exclaimed.

The party ended with the crowning of the best dressed male and female guests.


Semarak Ramadan with Nolee


Semarak Ramadan with Nolee

Perak Tourism organised the annual pre-Hari Raya Puasa programme Semarak Ramadan on Sunday, July 28 at Taulang Sekah. Berita Harian, Adabi and Tualang Sekah Community Service Centre were the co-organisers.

At the gotong royong style event, six cauldrons of bubur lambuk, a traditional breaking-fast dish, were cooked and distributed to the public at the nearby Ramadan bazaars.

Tualang Sekah assemblywoman cum State Executive Councillor for Health, Tourism and Culture, Puan Nolee Ashilin Mohammed Radzi said the objective of the event was to help foster good relationship with the local community.

She too hoped that the people would use the local mosque as a one-stop centre for social and religious activities in the future.

Sixty orphans and nearly 160 poor folks received duit raya from Nolee at the end of the function.
