The official dinner for the delegation of Perak “World of Wonders” Media Trip held last week was hosted at The Haven Resort Hotel & Residences in Tambun, Ipoh, amidst a stunning limestone backdrop that takes one’s breath away.
With a traditional theme, the delegates dressed up in colourful costumes, some of them resplendent, totally transformed from their appearance when they were grubby and then wet from activities earlier in the day, including caving in Gua Kandu and white water rafting along the Kampar River, both locations in Gopeng.
The dinner, which was jointly hosted by Tourism Perak Management Bhd. and The Haven, was also graced by top tourism officials in the state, players in the tourism industry, as well as sponsors.
During the function, representatives from The Haven and Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) took the opportunity to introduce their properties to the delegation, comprising media practitioners from Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines from various publications.
Both of these landmarks, The Haven and MAPS, are iconic, putting Ipoh on the world map. Do you know that the distance between these two destinations is only twenty minutes by car.
Entertainment throughout the evening was provided by Seniman Anak Perak (SNAP) and of course, the mascots of Mr. Peabody & Sherman provided much humour, proving that cartoons are not only loved by children.
The official dinner was also an opportunity for the organisers to show their appreciation to the many sponsors and service providers who helped make this media familiarisation trip as successful as it was.
Additionally, prizes in the form of gift hampers were presented to winners of the daily contests plus the Best Dressed Male and Female delegates. A new award was also introduced – Mr. Congeniality, which was won by Nordin Hamid.
All in all, the attendees had an amazing time. We work hard and play equally hard. As this trip was to introduce and update delegates on what Perak has to offer to tourists, this means that it is time to get down to work now.
