KOTA KINABALU – There is high mountain that cannot be climbed if you have a strong spirit.
That’s what the Manjung Municipal Council (MPM) staff proved when they successfully conquered the highest mountain in Malaysia, Mount Kinabalu, Sabah.
- There were 14 people led by MPM President, Syamsul Hazeman Md. Salleh who successfully completed the two-day climbing challenge that started on Monday.
The mission to capture Mount Kinabalu, which is also the highest peak in Southeast Asia, is a continuation of the previous achievements of MPM.
According to Syamsul Hazeman, it is also symbolic for all MPM members to reach the peak of success.
“This mission is to show MPM’s commitment to always be in the best place and it is in line with our desire to move towards becoming a Tourism and Maritime City.
“Always working together and helping each other is the culture of the MPM staff.
“Cooperation and mutual support among members of the mission this time has successfully helped everyone reach the top,” he said when contacted by Ipoh Echo.
All 14 members of this Kinabalu mission came from various different levels.
Each of them represented their respective departments in MPM.
One of the climbers, Nadiah Mohd Saruan informed that being in the group was a great mission, where each of the members managed to contribute to the success of the climb.
Nadiah, who is also the Director of the Pangkor Duty Free Island Management Unit, said that without the support of MPM people and the MPM Sports and Welfare Club, the mission this time might have been more difficult.
