With the support from our partners; TNGSB and AAM, we were able to reach out to thousands of Malaysian motorists to highlight the importance of vehicles checks and staying adequately rested and refreshed before embarking on their long journeys. Through our efforts, we hope Malaysians enjoyed a safe, meaningful and refreshing Hari Raya celebration this year,” said Ms Wong.
