Sibu Taxi Owners' Association held its AGM and New Year Gathering this evening at Kingwood Hotel. I partook of the fun-filled gathering as an invited guest.
Taxi drivers play the role of ambassadors in tourism. As such, they are not to be belittled in tourism development in Sibu. I have always looked up to them as my hotel's important business partners.
Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh was the guest of honour for the gathering. In his speech, Datuk Seri Wong said," The world is presently going through a turbulent time economically. But I hope the tourism development in Sibu would bring prospects in time to come."
Our taxi drivers are wonderful singers. They went on stage to sing out their joy unreservedly, making the evening a lot more fun-filled.
The organisers also chipped in with lucky draws and award-giving to members' offspring who excelled in results of examinations.
For the good efforts that the taxi drivers put in throughout the year, they deserved a rewarding evening together.
