Ter­rific Taip­ing

Let the BRATs show you what you should do the next time you’re in Taip­ing.

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BRATS -

TWO weeks ago, we held our BRATs Ipoh & Taip­ing 2014 work­shop, where 40 teen jour­nal­ists were sent on an ad­ven­ture of a life­time – which in­cluded a visit to a real-life (for­mer) pirate bay.

Nat­u­rally, when you have 40 up and com­ing jour­nal­ists go­ing on such an epic jour­ney, you’re gonna get some great sto­ries.

Last week, we pub­lished their sto­ries and pho­tos from Ipoh, where they toured the city’s herit- age sites, learnt how Ipoh white cof­fee is made, and went be­hind the scenes of the fa­mous Foh San dim sum restau­rant.

Of course, that was af­ter ed­i­tors and jour­nal­ists from R.AGE and The Star had given them a full day of jour­nal­ism work­shops, which were held at MH Ho­tel, Ipoh. We’re talk­ing about in­ter­view­ing and news writ­ing skills, pho­tog­ra­phy, videog­ra­phy, so­cial me­dia reporting and more.

And the day af­ter their Ipoh field as­sign­ments, we brought the par­tic­i­pants to Taip­ing for a day trip. Some of the fol­low­ing pages con­tain their sto­ries from that ex­cur­sion. En­joy! =)
