Department of Museums and Sparks Co as organisers of the ‘Fun at The Hub’ event will be having the Community Development Department (JAPEM) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports to participate in the weekend activities until its final day tomorrow.

JAPEM Officer Siti Alifah binti Awang Osman said the objective of participating in the final week is to encourage family bonding time and instil harmony as well as strengthen family ties.

“We have been invited to participate in the last three days and aside from the family conversation activity where we would interview members of the public on their opinions about family-oriented programmes available in the country, we have also lined up several other fun-filled activities for everyone to enjoy,” said Siti Alifah.

The department has set up booth alongs for Family Counseling Services, JAPEM, Ministry of Religious Affairs and Ministry of Health as well as organising a lucky draw for visitors.

Winners will be announced on their social media platform by December 19.

The highlight of the event will be on the last day with a ‘My To Do List’ activity where families will be asked to do some tasks together as well as several traditional games prepared by the Department of Museums.

“We welcome everyone especially families to come and join in the bonding activities and further enlivening our event,” she added.

A visitor who was at the event praised the set up of the booths in an open area adding that it would be better with a sheltered pathway, considering the unpredictable weather conditions experienced lately.

He added that while it is a good initiative by the relevant organisers to hold such family bonding events, they should also give extra thought to facilitating visitors, especially those with big families, particularly in terms of providing an ample parking space.

“Otherwise, this is a good initiative to have people spend their year-end holiday on home ground and have more quality family time, especially with festivals such as this that offer engaging fun games for the whole family,” said the visitor.
