PETALING JAYA: Star Media Group’s (SMG) golden jubilee celebrations received a royal boost from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah himself when the King gifted an intricately decorated cake complete with golden fondant for the staff.

The Nutella chocolate cake was presented by Comptroller of the Royal Household of Istana Negara Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, who said the gift was in recognition of the media company’s good relations with His Majesty during the years when he was president of the Football Association of Malaysia and the Malaysian Hockey Federation.

On hand to receive the delectable confection at Menara Star here was SMG chairman Tan Sri Chor Chee Heung, chief content officer Esther Ng, managing editor Brian Martin and chief news editor Paul Gabriel.

“His Majesty congratulates The Star’s staff and founders, past and present, whose efforts have enabled the reaching of this 50th anniversary milestone. The palace looks forward to many good years of partnership with all members of the media,” said Ahmad Fadil.

The cake was later shared among staff of various departments.
