PPB Karaoke Superstar Search 2017

PPB organised its first Karaoke Superstar Search for head office staff on 30 November 2017 at its office lounge. There were 12 strong contestants but Ms Marianna Madzin won the judges’ hearts with the popular song “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie “Titanic”. The overjoyed winner took the title “PPB Karaoke Superstar Search 2017” that night. Encik Ariffin Md Akib sang Rod Stewart’s “I Don’t Wanna Talk About It” whilst Ms Teh Siew Heng danced and sang to the song “Have You Ever Seen The Rain”; both shared second placing. It was certainly encouraging to see some “die-hard fans” carrying placards to cheer their colleagues.

The winners and all contestants were given shopping vouchers as prizes as well as tokens of encouragement for participating.

The contest brought PPB staff together for some karaoke entertainment after a hard day’s work, and enabled staff to showcase their singing talent.

Love Nature Together Family Day

On 6 June 2015, PPB organised its first outdoors family day, themed “Love Nature Together”. The event was held at the Kota Damansara Community Forest Reserve (KDCF), the first urban forest reserve in Petaling Jaya, and brought together a total of 370 PPB Group staff and their families.

The event started punctually at 9.00 am with opening remarks from Mr Lim Soon Huat, the Managing Director of PPB, followed by an introduction to KDCF by Ms Justine Vaz, President of the Kota Damansara Community Forest Society (KDCF Society).

A photo session with representatives of PPB and KDCFS marked the launch of the Unity Trail. The Unity Trail, which was sponsored by PPB, measures 2.2 km in length. It is suitable for trekking and mountain biking, and was completed last December.

Following the successful completion of the Unity Trail, PPB also sponsored an extension thereto, currently being built and is about 1.2 km long. The extension trail is exclusively a hiking and running trail heading to the highest point of the Kota Damansara forest.

The weather was bright and sunny and many signed up for guided walks led by members of the KDCF Society. The Unity Trail was the most popular one with the highest number of registrants. Ms Gonthong Lourdesamy, an environmental educator and General Manager of Wild Asia, guided the younger children to feel, see, hear and smell the wonders of nature on the Petaling Trail, and many left appreciating nature more.

Representatives from several NGOs namely, Roots & Shoots, Shark Savers and the Malaysian Nature Society shared interesting information and tips on environmental issues through various awareness talks. The NGOs were allocated an area to display information and items for sale to raise funds. My BirdWatch was also present to give an insight on urban birds and their habitats; and also organised a children’s drawing activity.

The participants also enjoyed other activities such as kayaking, an inflatable extreme obstacle course, face-painting and games stalls. Refreshments included food trucks serving hotdogs for breakfast, and warm meals for lunch in addition to other light refreshments and popcorn.

The highlight of the day was an Extreme Obstacle Course Inter-Company Challenge in which four sporting teams comprising four representatives each from PPB/PPBH, FFM, Chemquest and GSC participated. The fastest team, FFM, won the Challenge.

The family day brought staff from the various groups together and also enabled all to enjoy some nature-based outdoor activities in a forest environment.
