In conjunction with the 57th Merdeka Day celebration, Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh gave free passes to 12 selected Merdeka babies. The passes enabled these lucky recipients to have an enjoyable outing with their families and friends at the theme park. Some of the activities organised to commemorate the day were tiger-feeding, a mini Merdeka parade and a percussion show.
Prior to the opening of the shows, the management observed a minute’s silence as a show of respect for victims of MH17.
“Even though we are here to celebrate the 57th anniversary of the country’s independence, we wish to take the opportunity to show empathy for those who had lost their lives in the tragedy,” said Calvin Ho, General Manager, to Ipoh Echo.
The night ended with a Merdeka birthday bash for the invitees. It was definitely a day to remember for these lucky individuals.
