Drawing contest for children


MORE than 100 children are expected to join the ‘I Love Malaysia’ drawing and colouring competition at Mak Mandin in Taman Segar Indah, Seberang Perai, on Aug 25.

Scheduled to be held at the MPKK Community Hall from 9.30am to 1pm, the competition will offer children, aged from four to six, the chance to showcase their talent and creativity in view with National Day celebration this month.

The programme is jointly organised by Bagan Jermal service centre, Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) councillor Khong Chee Seong, Bagan Jermal’s Women and Family Development Committee and Mak Mandin’s Village Community Management Council (MPKK).

Bagan Jermal assemblyman Soon Lip Chee said the objective of this event was to instil a spirit of patriotism among the children.


“I encourage the parents to bring along their children to participate in this event.

“It helps to improve the bond between parents and children,” Soon said at a press conference in the MPKK Community Hall, Taman Segar Indah in Mak Mandin on Aug 12.

Aside from it, there would be a Zumba dance from 8am to 9am.

The closing date for registration is on Aug 22.
