Sharpened Word - December 2020

The year 2020 is a year most of us would want to forget. Many of us suffer hardship as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic - schools were closed, activities shunned, business suffered. As of now, the anticipated recovery is still uncertain and nobody can foretell when our life will return back to normal.

The team is aware of the gloom and doom but we are determined not to be dispirited by such shortcomings. As the year end approaches, we would like to end this year on a more positive note.

And so, we are proud to announce our “Talent Time - Ode to Old Ipoh” session by calling out to the community and give them an avenue to showcase their best and that we are not beaten down by the catastrophe.

As a further impetus, we are working hand-in-hand with Tourism Perak (“TP”) on this event where TP has generously sponsored a total of RM1,500 cash prizes to be given away to the Top 5 contestants as follows:

First prize : RM500

First runners-up : RM400

Second runners-up : RM300

Fourth : RM200

Fifth : RM150

In view of the pandemic situation, strict SOPs will be followed by both venue and event organiser before, during and post event.

There are some simple rules and regulations for the session as follows:

  • All genders and talents are welcome, minimum age 15 years. Participants below the age of 18 must have written consent from parents or guardians.
