The 70’s ambiance was in the air at Lost World Of Tambun (LWOT) recently when Perak Media Association (PMPP) organised its ‘Back to 70s Karaoke Night’.
Held at LWOT’s Kepura Cave, the night witnessed over 100 media representatives showing off their 70s’ theme dresses by wearing what was popular during the era: bell-bottom pants, Afro hair dos and more. Twenty participants took part in the karaoke session where Shaarani Ismail, a journalist from Berita Harian won first prize. Sharani received a cash prize and voucher to stay at LWOT’s hotel.
The president of PMPP, Sayed Mohd Hesyam Syed Idris believed that fun events such as this could strengthen the bond between all journalists who are working in Perak.
“This is one of the events held by PMPP and seeing the feedback we received tonight, we plan to have it annually,” added Sayed.
For Balkis Zahari, another journalist from Berita Harian, it didn’t bother her that she didn’t compete in the Karaoke Night but she was rather excited to dress up,
“I spent quite a few ringgit on the outfit, the accessories and also the makeup I did for today. I wasn’t in the mood to compete but just wanted to have fun with my colleagues,” said Balqis.
While Bernama’s Siti Hajar Mohd Saleh won the ‘Queen of 70s’ award, it was our own Ipoh Echo’s Rosli Mansor who grabbed the crown for ‘King of 70s’. Congratulations to all winners!
