IPOH — Two National Press Club Malaysia (NPC) teams represented in the Hawana 2023 treasure hunt from ‘Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh.’

The first team comprised NPC Team 31 joined by Asia News Today staff and NPC office manager Mr.Steven Foo and NPC Team 32 represented by associate members.

A total of 32 vehicles were flagged off by Deputy Minister of Communications and Digital, Teo Nie Ching at Wisma Bernama exploring attractive locations in Perak.

The places visited under the Treasure Hunt challenge are Rawang R&R, Proton City, ┬áPasir Salak Historical Complex, Kellie’s Castle, Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No.5, and Ipoh KTM station.

Bernama Special Project Editor, M. Govind Nair, who is also Treasure Hunt Clerk-of-Course, said that they would like to increase the number of participants if Hawana continues the Treasure Hunt activity as part of the programme.

“Other than that, regardless of the location where Hawana will be celebrated next year, perhaps we can allocate an additional night for the participants to stay, instead of only one night,” he said.

The ‘Close One Eye’ group, consisting of veteran journalists, has clinched first place in the Media Hunt National Journalists Day (Hawana) 2023 treasure hunt.

Close One Eye’s Abdul Razak Abu Chik, 62, said he has often participated in treasure hunts, organised by various parties, for the past 10 years.

The Media Hunt prize ceremony was presented by Bernama chief executive officer, Roslan Ariffin.

The three-day Hawana 2023 celebration, themed ‘Media Bebas, Tunjang Demokrasi’ (Free Media, Pillar of Democracy), was officiated by Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
