Four Points Merdeka drawing competition

 

By JAMES LEONG

SANDAKAN: Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan associates initiated a drawing competition to commemorate the 61st Malaysian Independence Day celebration.

The theme which was based on this year’s tag line ‘Sayangi Malaysiaku’ had an overwhelming response and the three external judges, Roslee Jaafar (Professional Art aand Culture), Emilina Gustin (Head of Dental Unit) and Eva Mohamad (Zumba Instructor and Teacher) were indeed captivated by the final product of the many hidden talents.

Roslee complimented General Manager, Peter Padman for having such a motivated and ever joyful team of employees while commenting that he was in awe as the 10 final artworks expressed so much of detail and love by the associates for their much adored country, Malaysia.

When asked why this drawing competition was organised, Peter said that his team has been working so hard over the past few months.

With so many new implementations within the company and with the integration of Marriott International with Starwood o going, Peter felt that his fellow colleagues could do with a break from the daily routine which has indeed been quite stressful lately.

He added that the associates who were a team of 100% Malaysians expressed so much passion and love for their country through the drawings and it was brought to reality that a picture does paint a thousand words.

The competition that was open to all 10 departments of the Hotel, was eventually won by the Human Resources Department, led by Haeruddin Nurdin, Human Resources Manager.

Their painting represented the various cultural and ethnic groups of the country who lived in perfect harmony from the North to the South, from Perlis to Sabah.

The various colours were explained in detail as to what it represented, while not forgetting the meaning of the Hibiscus as the National flower and the iconic KLCC that showed the progress and development of the country over the 61 years.
