Past, current plantation workers hold reunion in Kluang

Some of the attendees at the reunion for former workers of IOI Pamol Plantations.

LAUGHTER filled a hotel ballroom where former employees and residents of a plantation company held a reunion.

The group of retirees are former workers of IOI Pamol Plantations, previously known as Pamol Unilever, and they had gathered at Merdeka Hotel in Kluang, Johor, for their third reunion.

Their first reunion was in 2011 and the second was held two years later.

Organising chairman S. Rajasegram said some 60 attendees made up of former employees as well as the company’s previous and current top management were at the event.

“The reunion provided us with a great opportunity to reminisce about the good old days working at the plantation as well as catch up with friends.”

He said the former workers and current residents were very close as they shared a friendship forged during their time at Pamol estate.

“One thing that is unique at Pamol is that a mosque, a church and a temple are 100m apart,” he said.

“We have lived in peace and harmony with one another until today,” he said.

He added that they were looking at holding their next reunion at the Pamol club, located within the estate.

According to Rajasegram, many sporting figures from Malaysia and Johor had been associated with Pamol, including the late footballer Koh Poh Heng who represented the country during the Asian Games in Tehran, Iran, in 1974.

“Other notable figures include S. Nadarajan who played for the Johor football team and N. Silvadas who was a successful badminton player,” said Rajasegram.
