Being in journalism, there is hardly any break from work, especially for news reporters.
However, on Labour Day, some of us managed to take a little time off for a social gathering to renew our friendship. Certainly, it was a much needed respite, albeit just for three hours.
Over good food and greater company, with Wanita MCA chief Datuk Heng Seai Kie as guest-of-honour, it was indeed an evening to remember, as we took the opportunity to celebrate Parents’ Day.
Other guests, besides journalists and their family members, included photographers, both professionals and hobbyists.
During the event, a photography contest named “Explore Gopeng” was launched. The “Gopeng” here refers to the Federal constituency of Gopeng, encompassing the towns of Gopeng, Lawan Kuda, Kopisan, Simpang Pulai and Ampang.
With a first prize of RM3000 cash, this is one competition that you don’t want to miss if photography is your forte. Should you need further information, just drop me a comment.
By the end of the evening, a lucky draw was conducted. I would say, most of us won a prize, even yours truly.
