Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri 2015


On behalf of VIOBA, I would like to wish all my Muslim friends and Victorians a “Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri”. I hope you will have a chance to take a break from work, spend some time with loved ones and share laughter with friends. I am grateful for many things in life and I thank everyone who had a role in making me the person I am today. I also seek forgiveness for any trespass and mistakes.

It has not been an easy year for many of us, the impacts from daily economic pressures seem never ending and it’s hard to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. However tough things are out there, we are still a blessed lot and we have many things to be thankful for. So catch up with your family and gang this festive period and remind them how important they are to you.

Salam Sejahtera and safe travels!

Warmest Regards,

KC Kwek – President

VIOBA Annual Dinner 2015 Special Edition Tattoo

Many thanks to everyone for a full hearted support towards the dinner and tattoo performance. I am pleased to say that we have met our objectives for the event; we have had a very important Guest of Honour, YB Dato Seri Idris Jusoh, the Minister of Education II pledging his support towards VI and VIOBA. The Ministry will look into ways to repair the school infrastructure which is urgently needed. Secondly many guests were astounded by the polished performance of the VICC Band and Infantry and most have written to me saying how much they appreciated the opportunity to return to VI and see our Victorians in action!

There were shortcomings in the event and I take full responsibility and apologise for mistakes and errors. Thank you again to the Bandsmen, the Infantry, the teachers and parents for their hard work and dedication. You have shown that the current Victorians match with the old ones!

A report is attached below for your reading pleasure.

Warmest Regards,

KC Kwek – President
