KUCHING: My­din Group is host­ing a line-up of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at its Sa­mar­i­ang hy­per­mar­ket – its first in Sarawak – in cel­e­bra­tion of its 60th an­niver­sary this year.

The cel­e­bra­tion, which kicked off yes­ter­day, in­cludes the ‘Da­pur An­tap’ cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion, chil­dren’s colour­ing con­test, live per­for­mances by popular artistes and se­ries of tra­di­tional show­cases.

The cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion – co­hosted by Cats FM and spon­sored by Ad­abi – reaches its fi­nale to­day with five teams set to whip out their best ‘Ayam Pan­suh’ and ‘Umai’ dishes for judg­ing.

The five were among 10 twom­em­ber teams try­ing out at the pre­lim­i­nary round yes­ter­day.

The chil­dren’s colour­ing con­test was also held yes­ter­day, di­vided into two age-group cat­e­gories – A for 10-12 Years Old, and B for Seven-Nine Years Old.

Last night, shop­pers at My­din Sa­mar­i­ang were treated to an entertainment ex­trav­a­ganza

It is very con­ve­nient here be­cause it is near my house. The items and prices here at­tract me as well. I also like the ‘Kad Me­riah’ – its card mem­ber­ship pro­gramme that of­fers var­i­ous loy­alty re­wards and points. For me, My­din is def­i­nitely my choice for gro­cery shop­ping. — Nor­lia Salleh, shop­per

pre­sented by lo­cal per­form­ers like The Fam­ily Man, Ila Damia, Asyraf Hardy, Aideed and Fiyah, and Sound­holics. This con­tin­ued with a mini tra­di­tional mu­si­cal show­case by Julien Cot­tet, a French na­tional who per­forms us­ing Sarawak mu­si­cal in­stru­ments.

Many shop­pers, when in­ter­viewed, said they were happy to have a My­din mall in their neigh­bour­hood.

“It is very con­ve­nient here be­cause it is near my house. The items and prices here at­tract me as well.

An­other shop­per, 60-year-old Nordin Ah­mad praised My­din for its reg­u­lar pro­mo­tions.

“Prices are low, and the weekly of­fers are very at­trac­tive – we are al­ways look­ing for­ward to bar­gains and more sav­ings,” he said.

Apart for the ‘Da­pur An­tap’ fi­nale, My­din Sa­mar­i­ang is also host­ing a craft ex­hi­bi­tion at its Pro­mosi Kraf Malaysia 2017 section, a blood do­na­tion drive and se­ries of games through­out to­day.
