Kinta Properties took a bold first step into the New Year with splashes of gold and red during its annual dinner held on Friday, January 22 at the lantern-adorned Dome Restaurant, Meru Golf and Country Club.

“The crowd gets bigger every year. I’d like to thank everybody including the staff, consultants, contractors and bankers for all the support that they have given us. We have staff who have been with us for many years and we are also bringing in new and younger people to continue the company,” said Dato’ Lim Si Boon, Chairman of Kinta Properties. Kinta Properties is synonymous with property development within Perak for almost 48 years now.

What is Chinese New Year without bountiful bites? After the must-have yee sang (prosperity toss), there was free-flowing charcoal-grilled Australian wagyu beef, fresh oysters, chuka kurage (seasoned jellyfish), chuka hotate (seasoned scallop), tiger prawns, baked salmon and more.

The crowd of over 200 was also entertained by live band Supernova, rendering golden classics from the 80s throughout an evening filled with hugs and cheers of yum seng (bottom’s up!). It went really well with the dance floor filling up as the night wore on.

Other highlights included the best-dressed competition and lucky draws in which lucky guests walked away with AEON vouchers, Cornell juice extractor, Philips air purifier, Samsung 40-inch Smart LED TV and iPad Mini 4.
