THE residents of Persatuan Kebajikan Insan Istimewa Cahaya Selangor received a special visit from the beautiful contestants of the Miss Malaysia Tourism Pageant, who arrived bearing gifts.
They dropped in for an afternoon of cheering-up, bringing with them a supply of pillows, blankets, locker and shelves for the home, which shelters six children and one senior citizen.

It was a joyful sight as the children’s faces lit up with smiles during the interactive sessions with the Miss Malaysia participants past and present.
