Hailing from Sungai Petani in the Northern Malaysian state of Kedah, The Kim family exhibited exceptional creativity and originality in their pictures, capturing not only what family time means to their family of four, but most, importantly encapsulate the very essence of quality over quantity in their “Time Together” at Puteri Harbour as the preferred destination for families to play, dine, stay and explore.
为吸引更多本地与海外访客到位于依斯干达公主城的公主港度假或，主办方（Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels）首次联合亚洲航空（AirAsia），今旅酒店（Hotel Jen）及许多区内著名景点，举办了为期两个月以“共享美好时光”（Time Together）为主题的摄影比赛，并成功吸引了超过300户马新两地的家庭踊跃参加，最后由金仓颉及戴韶家两家人脱颖而出，分别代表马来西亚及新加坡迈入总决赛，展开一场长堤两岸的友谊赛！
Launched on 14 April 2016, the cross-border photo contest sought to inspire time together amongst family members, and ran in two stages. In the preliminary stage, where families were asked to upload an image and complete a caption that reflected what “time together” meant to them; and the final stage sees the Kim and Ter families going head-to-head in a travel diary challenge to decide the ultimate winner. The contest garnered approximately 300 entries from families in Malaysia and Singapore.
The Winning Entry
What does time together mean to you? Most of us would probably describe all the happy moments spent with our family and friends, but to the Kim’s family, the simple tagline has a much deeper meaning. In the words of Mr Kim, “Time Together means we SHARE, we LAUGH and we HAVE FUN. We FORGIVE, we say I”m SORRY and we STICK together. We make memories be it happy, sad, sweet or sour.” Sounds simple but yet so profound?
When it was announced that the Kim family has won the preliminary for Malaysia, the entire household was happily surprised and literally gone through some sleepless nights. Having never been to Puteri Harbour before this event, the kids especially were excited at the prospect of holidaying in such an exciting family destination.
When asked how they would spend their prize money, the elderly Kim insisted that the prize money of RM15,000 would be split four ways, with each family member receiving RM3,750 for their effort as a team. As for the RM10,000 worth of AirAsia flight vouchers, they would book their next trip and fly back to Johor Bahru, having missed the chance in their previous trip (with the photo contest at the back of their minds), to truly take in all the sights and sounds of Puteri Harbour, and create more family memories together.
As a parting shot before we leave the Kim family to bask in their new-found fame, the couple believes that family time in today’s society can often take a back seat to economic needs, and family time is something we all need to make time in order to reconnect with our loved ones. Very wise advice indeed.
Last but not least…
Our heartiest congratulations also go to John Ter and his beautiful family for clinching the 1st runner up spot, walking away with a cool RM5,000 prize money which they will treat both their parents and in-laws to a family holiday to explore Malaysia and create more memorable moments together. And yes, a big Thank you to Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels for inviting us to be part of this meaningful endevours, and for sure we will want to have a shot at the jackpot and be part of this photo contest proper LOL! Till then, let’s enjoy “Time Together” at Puteri Harbour for Buka Puasa now…
