Visitors are excited to eat a feast with the Prime Minister
MELAKA: Visitors to the People’s Feast in conjunction with the Malacca Malaysian Family Aspirations Tour (AKM) on Friday were excited when they had the opportunity to eat a feast together with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
Even more special, Ismail Sabri who spent 45 minutes enjoying a variety of dishes such as lamb soup, capati, fried noodles and spicy asam pedas, also had time to be friendly with the people present at the program held at the Melaka International Trade Center (MITC) here.
The People’s Feast feast was also graced with a singing performance in addition to some dishes being cooked live for the visitors to see.
A visitor, Zaiharani Daud, 35, admitted that he was lucky to be able to eat with the Prime Minister which of course became a precious memory for him and his four-year-old son.
“My son was very happy to meet the Prime Minister. It is not always possible to eat a feast like this and although the menu is simple, it is very tasty,” he told Bernama.
In the meantime, Ismail Sabri had previously visited various agencies and services that participated in the program, including the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development and the Melaka Biotechnology Corporation.
AKM tour visitors are also seen to be quite cheerful and excited when they can approach the country’s leaders in a more relaxed manner, and some even don’t miss the opportunity to take selfies.
Also accompanying the Prime Minister on the visit was Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali, the state government exco and other guests.
Earlier he officiated the AKM Melaka tour which started from Friday to Sunday by providing 29 service counters, 13 mobile service counters and 118 sales stalls for small and medium industrial entrepreneurs.
