FOR Kampung Tasik Permai residents and local leaders, the Teratai Tang Lung Festival is set to be a fun-filled night with loads of activities for the community.

Organised by Zone 19 Residents’ Committee and Teratai assemblyman Bryan Lai’s office, the event is held in conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival which falls on Sept 13.

It will be held today at Jalan Permai 21, Kampung Tasik Permai, Ampang from 5.30pm to 9.30pm.

Ampang Jaya municipal councillor Ten Kiat Loong said this year, the community would be involved in the process of food preparation, decoration and performances.

“Last time, people just flocked to the event for the buffet and celebration, but we are doing it differently this year.

Five hundred mooncakes were also made the day before by the residents.

“Some of the highlights include cultural dances from SJK(C) On Pong 2 and singing performances,” he said.

Lai said the event caters for the new village community that has a diverse population.

“The event is not only for the Chinese, but all are welcome to join in the festivities,” he said, adding that the event targeted 500 to 800 attendees.

Meanwhile, the Love My Palm Oil campaign will be held tomorrow from 9am to 1pm at Jalan Bunga Melur 1, in front of the BHP petrol station in collaboration with the Primary Industries Ministry.

It aims to promote awareness of palm oil and there will be a cooking competition for adults as well as a Beyblade competition for children.

Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok will be there to officiate the event.

Those who wish to join the competition can get participation forms at the Teratai Service Centre or call 03-4297 6688.
