Allianz Malaysia enjoyed a three-week-long celebration in commemorating Malaysia Day.

This year, the Company did things a little different with a Teh Tarik Competition on 13 September 2016 featuring Zakri Khir (Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Malaysia Berhad and Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad), Joseph Gross (Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad), Charles Ong (Chief Financial Officer of Allianz Malaysia Berhad) and Sean Wang (Chief Operations Officer) of Allianz Malaysia Berhad).

The four men were tasked to make tea from scratch, to pull the tea from one cup to another, with no spillages and serve them in a cup. They were then judged on taste, technique and style by none other than Allianz Malaysia’s resident tea lady and two employees. The competition which was not short of fun and laughter was won by Joseph.

Other activities carried out included the use of the Rukun Negara desktop wallpaper (7 September onwards), a drawing contest themed ‘Malaysia My Home’ that was organised for the employees’ children (9 to 20 September) and the use of specially commissioned Jalur Gemilang email signature banner by all employees (12 September onwards) and a ‘Come to Work  in Traditional Attire’ Day for all employees (15 September).

To sign off the celebration, the Company organised a screening of a well-loved Malaysian on 21 September 2016. Approximately 200 employees at the Head Office were treated to a screening of the hit Malaysian movie Ola Bola complete with kacang putih just like in the 60’s! Besides that, employees also had the chance to try their hand at batik drawing and taking their creations home as a keepsake.
