A CROWD of 3,000 gathered to enjoy a sumptuous spread of local delicacies during the Hulu Selangor Hari Raya open house.
They helped themselves to grilled lamb, satay, lemang, nasi impit, ketupat, jagung bakar, cendol, laksa, curry mee and mee rebus, among others.
The gathering, held at the Hulu Selangor Land Office Sports Complex and Multipurpose hall in Kuala Kubu Baru, was jointly organised by 35 government agencies, including the Hulu Selangor District Council (MDHS) and Hulu Selangor Land Office.
MDHS president Noraini Roslan joined the celebration for the first time as council head.
“Since coming here in February, I have begun to work better with MDHS staff in coordinating events. The work culture here is different from Kuala Selangor District Council, where I used to be,” she said.
MDHS secretary Azman Dahlan said organising the event had brought all the relevant authorities to work under one roof and mingle with the people.
Guest of honour was Selangor Infrastructure, Public Amenities and Agro-based Industry Committee chairman Zaidy Abdul Talib.
