PHS: The Innovative Organisation in Perak Tourism

Finally, in the second decade of our existence, our heritage work has been officially recognised by the tourism authority in the state of Perak.

Tourism Perak awarded PHS the Innovative Organisation (NGO) of 2013, in acknowledgement of our responsible policies and sustainable activities. The truth is, through the years, we have formed partnerships for extra capacity and we have managed to stay relevant to the cause through adaptation. Indeed, we achieved our objectives with strategic action, and we did it in the spirit of volunteerism.

The award was presented at the Perak Tourism Awards Night 2013, a dinner party held in the spacious banquet hall of the new Casuarina@ Meru Hotel in Meru Raya, Ipoh. The Chinese dinner was a pleasant surprise; it went down well.

MB Zambry-Mohd taib

There to receive the Award for PHS was our President, Mohd Taib Mohamed, who has this to share: ‘In his welcome speech, Perak Menteri Besar Dato’ Dr Zambry highlighted the need to humanise “tourism products”, that tourism promotion must factor in people in order to give it soul. As far as I am concerned, we in PHS have been doing it for years. The human factor is the soul of our activities; we care about our past – our social history and material culture. Our activities are about what we can do for other people in the promotion of our heritage.’

With lighting effect, the atmosphere in the banquet hall was genuinely warm. To top it all, popular singing star Anuar Zain popped up to entertain the gathering. Photo-opportunities arose during his third song. As he moved through the crowd, adoring female fans posed with him for their album, and Facebook, of course.
