MALACCA Chief Minister urged everyone to enjoy Visit Malaysia Year 2014. To Datuk Seri Idris Haron, VMY 2014 is Visit Malacca Year and not just Visit Malaysia Year! Smart isn't it?
He made this reference at last week's convocation for graduates of the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology. He was honoured with an Honorary Doctorate. He was then called to address the graduating students, parents and guests.
The Sultanah of Pahang, Sultanah Hajjah Kalsom, was the university's Chancellor. Addressing the crowd, Idris said: "Next year is VMY 2014. So make sure you all come to Malacca and visit us. VMY is not just Visit Malaysia Year, it's also Visit Malacca Year."
The hall laughed and applauded. And realising that the Chancellor was also listening, Idris said: "After visiting Malacca, visit Pahang too. You must..."
Idris said many things in his speech but his humour on this occasion stood out. Incidentally, try out the bungalow at the Kelebang Beach Resort -- good for group bookings, BBQ and family get-together. Service needs improvement though.
