It was an evening of celebration at Green Green Restaurant & Cafe yesterday, in honour of Y.Bhg. Dato’ Rumaizi bin Baharin@Md Daud who received the prestigious Best Local Government Leadership Award 2023, presented by the Ministry of Local Government Development (Malaysia) in Kuala Lumpur recently. Another recipient was the Meru Raya Fire and Rescue Station for the ministry’s Green Award.
Last but not least, it was also an opportunity to celebrate the inclusion of Ipoh City in the new “UNESCO Creative Cities Network” for Music, together with 54 other cities around the world for various other categories, on World Cities Day on 31st October, 2023. Ipoh is the second city in Malaysia to be in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Kuching is first, in the category of Gastronomy.
The event at Green Green Restaurant was organised by A2Z Charity Organisation, and coorganised by the Branding Association of Malaysia alongside the Perak Artists Association (Persatuan Pelukis Perak). It was endorsed by the Ipoh City Council (MBI) and supported by Tourism Perak Berhad. The main objective was to launch the heART of Perak (Timeless Art, Food & Culture) project, running up to Visit Perak Year 2024.
The highlight of the heART of Perak is a gigantic mural in Ipoh City, at a yet-to-be-identified location, but highly likely at Lorong Seni @ Lorong Panglima. The topic for the mural is “Ipoh Cemerlang” and will be drawn collaboratively by members of the Perak Artists Association.
Green Green Restaurant & Cafe also took the opportunity to introduce their new item on the menu, the Haha Baba Seafood Shellout Platter. Available in four sizes of two different variety options, they are priced from RM88. Green Green Restaurant is a Muslim-friendly establishment. Reservation is required.
Meanwhile, as part of The heART of Perak launch, members of the Perak Artists Association also exhibited their artwork for the occasion.
