EVERYONE had a good time at the Malaysia Day celebration organised by the Kompleks Bukit Jambul (KBJ) management in Penang.
The guests were entertained with cultural dances, a musical performance and fashion show featuring apparel from Kamdar, Mahakarya, Top Fashion and Ronna RNT at the ‘Sambutan Hari Malaysia Hi-Tea’ event recently.
Present were Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas, staff from various government bodies and merchants from the complex.
KBJ chairman K.H. Chan thanked those who attended the event in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This is a chance for the community, including the authorities and business associates, to foster the family spirit and enjoy some good food at the same time, ” he said in his opening address.
Chan said the management would continue to support the complex merchants by having more promotions such as a shoppers’ reward programme to attract more people.
Children from Persekutuan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Yatim Islam Pulau Pinang were also invited for the celebration where they were each given a green packet and a goodie bag.
Abdul Rahman also received a belated birthday cake from the KBJ management at the event. His official birthday is July 11.
