TEA time, affectionately referred to as ‘minum petang’ by Malaysians, holds a special place in our culture. It serves as a cherished tradition, providing an opportunity for individuals to pause, relax, and enjoy meaningful moments together over a cup of tea or coffee, complemented by an array of snacks or light bites.
To celebrate the culture together as a community, the Young Malaysian Movements (northeast district Penang) and dQuest Ventures are jointly organising the ‘Jom Minum Petang Penang!’ at Sia Boey Urban Archaeological Park this weekend, Dec 10 (Sunday) from 3pm to 10pm.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Cultures (Motac), and the National Consumer Action Council (MTPN) northeast district Penang branch.
Pengkalan Kota assemblyman Wong Yuee Harng highlighted that the event would not only showcase local delights like ‘Putu Mayong,’ ‘Peranakan Kuih,’ ‘Karipap,’ ‘Apom Balik,’ and ‘Tong Shui,’ but it would also offer diverse entertainment, including Buskers Band, Teh Tarik demonstrations, captivating dance and band performances, and a variety of crafts for sale.
“The event will host over 50 stalls featuring a delightful array of afternoon tea selections and showcasing local crafts. Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy complimentary trishaw rides, adding an extra layer of enjoyment to the experience,” Wong said during a press conference on Dec 4 at the Sia Boey Urban Archaeological Park.
Wong added that the ‘Jom Minum Petang Penang!’ event is the first of its kind in Penang and hoped that Penangites would take part in creating memorable time together.
Also present during the press conference were, Motac representative Zurina Abd Wahab, MTPN Penang branch secretary Joanne Tan and dQuest Ventures event manager Kent Ho.
