Porsche Club Malaysia (PCM ) held a dinner to welcome their new members on February 21st at the Eastin Hotel. The dinner was attended by more than one hundred guests, thirty one of whom were new additions to the club. Some new members came from as far as Penang to join in the revelries and were accompanied by Ms. Winnie Chin, the Marketing Executive for Porsche Center Penang (PCP). Apart from accompanying the new members PCP provided welcome gifts and assistance in making the members feel welcome.
The evening kicked off with a welcome address from Datuk Ali Kadir who emphasized the value and enjoyment of being a part of the Porsche Club Malaysia. He thanked various members of the committee and others for organizing the event and recognised two attending PCM partners; Mr. Aoki,Managing Director and PC Ng, Commercial General manager of Bridgestone Malaysia, and Mr. Alain Pillai, CEO of Auto Eurocars.
The MC for the evening was Dato Leonard Tan whose exuberant wit and active banter kept the crowd alive and energetic. Accompanied by members of the PCM Committee, the evening played out to be an informative, fun filled occasion. The highlight of the evening was the introduction and recognition of the newest members;“persuaded” to introduce themselves many of them resorted to a humorous rendition adding to the already entertaining air of the evening. Adding to the evening’s activities was a slideshow of the Drive-Of-The-Year to Vientianne, Laos. Plans are already in the works for this year’s DOTY; destination to be announced soon!
The evening ended late with an air of exuberance which continued onto the next day’s drive to Genting Highlands where more than twenty Porsches showed up in the early morning mists. Onto the next social!
