The Village Consultative Council (MPK) of Kampong Sungai Teraban recently organised various sporting and commercial activities for the Sukaneka event, at the village community hall.

The family-themed gathering was launched by Belait District Officer Ramlee bin Haji Jamudin, who was accompanied by his spouse Nur Farhana binti Abdullah Ajak.

Also present were mukim penghulus and village heads from the surrounding area, as well as members of MPK Kampong Sungai Teraban.

Chairman of the event Haji Azmi bin Haji Julaihi said the activities allowed residents to spend quality time with their families.

“I hope this event will help residents be more involved in activities, while encouraging MPK Kampong Sungai Teraban to look forward to organising future activities such as this,” he said.

The guest of honour flagged off the cycling activity, where more than 100 participants cycled across the village to Sungai Tujoh, before returning to the Kampong Sungai Teraban Community Hall.

The guest of honour also toured booths set up in the community hall and along a closed-off road section, where village entrepreneurs peddled goods and conducted games for visitors.

Friendly matches were held throughout the day, including a small racing boat display, which allowed Sungai Teraban (ST) Racing Team to showcase its skills and experience in the event.
