The launch of the ‘My Love Quick Game’ approach can foster a sense of team spirit as well as enhancing relationships in an organisation.
According to the assistant officer of Tun Razak Library (PTR), Rohayu Mohd Tahir, the programme can groom individuals to be more productive and self-reliant, and stoke the fires of creativity.
“Rising to fame in other countries, Quick Game bolsters camaraderie and strengthens relationships between departments in a workplace.
“At the same time, we are in the hope of fulfilling the wish of the Ipoh Mayor, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin, which is to develop a deeper understanding of employees at all levels.
“In the programme conducted previously, we have highlighted the concept of ‘approach’ to the community which can be seen via several initiatives, such as, ‘My Love Didik Bistari’, ‘My Love DiriMu Kekasih’ and the latest, ‘My Love Quick Game’.
“Besides, we want to introduce PTR as a storehouse of knowledge that provides quality reading materials and also comes equipped with up-to-date information,” he said during a press conference after the commencement of ‘My Love Quick Game’ at Tun Razak Library, yesterday.
Some 20 groups, consisting of members of the Ipoh City Council (MBI), took part in the programme organised by PTR. Each group was represented by five members.
The game was divided into seven sections, each of which took six to seven minutes to complete. The challenge tests including patience, creativity, initiative and talent were demonstrated by the participants.
The first prize is worth RM500 and is accompanied by a hamper, while the second and third will fetch RM350 and RM200 respectively.
Meanwhile, MBI’s Head of WHIP, Dato’ Mazlan Abdul Rahman said Quick Game is a community sport and should be introduced to all organisations and companies to tackle personal betterment as well as career progression.
“Aside from that, I highly recommend that PTR create a community-based programme for the children of MBI members, who will be sitting for examinations. For instance, effective techniques to answer examination questions which can be organised with teachers from the Kinta District Education Office (MOE).
“Religious programmes such as the Prayer Audit (Audit Solat) can be carried out for both the children of MBI members as well as the public to educate the future generation to love prayers and inculcate moral values in children,” he said.
