Raja Muda officiates Daikin Festival, featuring Malaysian, Japanese dances

SHAH ALAM, Oct 1 — The Raja Muda of Selangor Tengku Amir Shah attended the Daikin Festival at the air conditioning company’s Malaysian headquarters in Sungai Buloh yesterday.

His Highness arrived at around 5pm and was welcomed by Daikin Malaysia Group Management senior vice president Mitsuo Honda and its general manager Tomoji Miki.

During the event, Tengku Amir witnessed the presentation of a corporate social responsibility (CSR) mock cheques by the company to the representatives of two welfare homes and three schools in the Sungai Buloh area.

They included Rumah Kasih Harmoni Paya Jaras, Rumah Aman Children’s Home, SK Bukit Rahman Putra, SJK(C) Sungai Buloh, and SJK(T) Kuang, each receiving RM2,000.

His Highness also watched a Yosakoi dance performance by Daikin’s Japanese expatriate employees, as well as other cultural dances and silat demonstrations.

Mitsuo said the festival was the first of its kind and emphasised the concept of ‘uniting all’ as a symbol of building strong relationships with the local community.

Combining Japanese and Malaysian elements, the festival also showcased Daikin’s commitment to CSR programmes, which have been carried out since the company established itself in the country in 2006.

“This festival aligns with the company’s vision of excellence, unity, and community improvement. Besides providing air conditioning solutions, we are committed to CSR programmes.

“For instance, through contributions to the five parties today, we hope to assist in their daily operations,” he said during the festival launch.

The festival also featured other exciting activities aside from traditional Japanese and Malaysian dances, including food stalls, colouring activities with Upin dan Ipin, and Pichonkun.

There was a meet-and-greet session with Selangor FC football players, allowing the public to obtain autographs, as well as a lucky draw.
