The Article

Allianz Malaysia Berhad’s Malaysia Day celebration was a nostalgic trip down memory lane. 

The celebration to mark the formation of Malaysia (joining of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore) on 16 September 1963 before Singapore broke away in 1965, centred reliving memories from the historical era through photos, videos and stories from employees who witness the milestone. 

Besides that, the celebration also included fun activities such as the screening of the P.Ramlee classic Madu Tiga, wau making and batik painting activities, the wearing of traditional costumes, distribution of Cendol-flavoured ais krim Malaysia and an evergreen playlist featuring local and international music from 1963 such as Achi Achi Buka Pintu (P.Ramlee and Saloma), Surfin’ USA (Beach Boys), Sukiyaki (Kyu Sakamoto), My Boyfriend’s Back (Angels) and more.  

Zakri Khir, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Malaysia said: “Allahyarham Y.M. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah) was a firm believer that we are Malaysians first, regardless of colour, creed or religion. This is what unity is about and we must remind ourselves not to lose sight of the vision that our forefathers had.”   

“Allianz has always gone big on our Malaysia Day celebration because it is our way in remembering one of the most important millstones in our history. Taking a trip down memory lane reminds us how it was back then, when race, colour and religion was the furthest things from our minds and how P.Ramlee brought and can still bring us all together after all these years. That’s the effortless unity we want to evoke, the unity that makes Malaysia who she is and the unity that makes Allianz Malaysia different,” added Zakri. 

Allianz wishes all Malaysians, a very Happy Malaysia Day!  To find out more about Allianz Malaysia’s Malaysia Day celebrations, visit allianzmalaysia.com.my
