In conjunction with the Christmas celebration, PPB brought 48 orang asli guests from the Lanau tribe living in Kampung Batu Sapi, Lenggong, Perak for an outing on 16 December 2017.
The outing began with breakfast at the foyer of the cinema followed by screening of the movie “Boboiboi”. After the movie, a buffet lunch was served at the foyer. PPB staff presented Christmas carols to its guests and were then rewarded with a special dance performance by the older orang asli girls.
PPB staff were assigned as ‘Guardian Angels’ for the event, to ensure none of its guests were left alone and all were comfortable and felt welcome. The guests went shopping with their Guardian Angels at AEON Big. Each guest was given a budget of RM80 to spend. It was a good time of shopping and our guests left the Mall carrying bags of goodies including a knapsack.
The outing provided many first-time experiences for the orang asli including venturing out of their village, watching a movie etc. It also brought PPB staff great satisfaction and joy to see their happy excited faces.
