My apologies to Stephen Ngah, chairman of SCI Malaysia, for taking so long to post this event. He called me in early February to say that SCI was coming to do a day's work at PERKOBP! Very delighted, I sent him a list of work to be done. I was confident that his team, as always would get the job done and very well too!

This year, a highly motivated Loong led the team of about 15 members. He organized his members into groups to take on the various tasks planned for the morning.

By around 1.00pm all the tasks were completed. The satisfied participants cleaned themselves up and sat down for a delicious lunch prepared by Sue and her team.The lunch was followed by a debriefing from Loong. Everyone had a chance to share how he/she felt about doing volunteering work.

The ever happy SCI Team!

Chng, our Executive Secretary, invited those SCI members who had not seen the actual operations of our centre to come visit us during any working day to understand more about our activities.

Once again, many thanks to Stephen, Loong, Nurul, William and the rest for spending the morning with us. Thanks for the time and efforts. Hope to see you all again next year.

Brand's "Gift of Love" 2009 Campaign

Wednesday, 18 March 2009


For the past three Chinese New Year celebrations, Cerebos (M) Sdn Bhd strived to remember the less fortunate and lend a helping hand as much as it can. Through its annual “Gift of Love” campaign, Cerebos Malaysia encourages individuals to donate to a worthy cause even as they go about preparing for the New Year festivities.

PERKOBP was chosen as the sole recipient of the proceeds for the 2009 Lunar Year celebration. Through the sale of hampers of the company’s popular products – BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken and the BRAND’S ® Bird Nest, the company sets aside a portion of the profits as donation. PERKOBP received a sum of RM10,000 on the 18th March 2009 during a simple cheque presentation ceremony held at the centre.
