Ipoh, 21st May 2019 – In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya and school holidays, Sunway Lost World Of Tambun is hosting a celebration of all things Malaysian. The Malaysia First Lah celebration, which will run from 25 May to 9 June, allow visitors to experience the wonders of local Malay culture, reminiscent of traditions, values and customs, which Malaysian share in a true spirit of unity and concord.
Among the many activities in store for visitors during the celebration period include the experience of Malay traditional games such as playing on a giant congkak board and participating in hybrid game of Teng Teng with Snakes and Ladders. Promised to be all fun and exciting, the celebration will also feature the Humalaya Malayana meet and greet session as well as the Awesome Raya Pool Party to spice things up during the Raya festivities.
“Games and sports have a unique way to bring people together while creating and renewing bonds. This is why we are making fun games a big part of our Malaysia First Lah celebration, where families and friends can come together at Sunway Lost World Of Tambun and celebrate awesome moments with traditional Malay games,” said Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari, General Manager of Sunway Lost World Of Tambun.
“It truly will be a special time for the whole family, creating a bridge between the older generation and the young ones, as parents can reminisce their childhood playing games which are sadly forgotten today while the younger ones can experience these games their parents used to play, while doing what kids do best – having fun!” he added.
Meanwhile, when all the fun and games leave participants hungry, they can continue to bond while indulging in special food and beverage promotions at Sunway Lost World Of Tambun’s Dulang Tea House, with a specifically curated menu featuring traditional Malay favourites including Rendang Tok Daging, Rendang Ayam, Ketupat, Lemang, Nasi Impit, Tempoyak Ikan Patin, Ulam, and Air Bandung, Dodol and an assortment of Kuih Raya, guaranteed to whet any appetite, large or small.
The event also saw the launch of Lost World Of Tambun’s Kuang Raya conservation programme, the first of its kind in the country, officiated by Dato’ Abdul Kadir Bin Abu Hashim, the Director General of Wildlife and National Parks department (PERHILITAN). The attractively remarkable Kuang Raya, or Great Argus, is a pheasant species native to Southeast Asia, identified by its brown plumage, blue head and neck, rufous red upper breast, black hair-like feathers on its crown and nape, and red legs.
Due to ongoing natural habitat loss and hunting, conservation of this species is essential to its survival, which has led Sunway Lost World Of Tambun to take the lead in this regard, featuring a full on conservation site on its grounds, where visitors can get up close and personal with these beauties.
“As Malaysians, we sometimes take for granted the rich, diverse heritage and legacy that we enjoy in this beautiful land. It is something that is unique to us, as it can be found nowhere else. Therefore, the responsibility lies on us to preserve and protect this heritage. The upcoming school holidays and Hari Raya is the perfect opportunity for us to do this right here at Lost World Of Tambun. While guests will certainly be in for a good time, they will also more importantly be part of a truly unique initiative which we all can share as Malaysians,” said Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari, General Manager of Sunway Lost World Of Tambun.
