Subang Jaya Merdeka Fun Walk 2008

Hundreds of residents came out on Sunday morning to participate in the Subang Jaya Merdeka Fun Walk 2008 organised by the JKP Zone 1. Children, teens, adults and senior citizens came out in full force, ready to have some fun and to win some of the fantastic sponsored prizes. Bicycles, handphones, printers, MP3 players, electronic goods, hampers and even TV sets were given out during the lucky draw session.

Being a young state assemblyman, I was made to participate in the warm up session, to become the flag bearer and also to cycle on a mountain bike! The fun walk does not have winners, the objectives of the walk are to have fun together and to know our neighbours as we walk. I had a good time chatting with residents as we walked.

Health screening was also conducted for residents. There was a hip hop performance and a funny quiz session. Policemen were also honored for their contribution to the people of Subang Jaya. A job well done to the organising committee!

I walked away feeling satisfied seeing residents of different races and generations working together. That's what Merdeka is all about - when Malaysians love for the common good and put aside differences to live together.

Hannah, these kind of activities should be held more often. It would be great to be part of a Subang Jaya community!
