LANGKAWI, July 13 (Bernama) -- For the second year, the leading yacht charter company, Tropical Charters Sdn Bhd, brings about 50 media practitioners to celebrate Aidilfitri with their families onboard one of their cruise ships.
Nine orphans from Langkawi's Nur Kasih orphanages and their caretakers were also feted to the unique Aidilfitri treat on the three-hour cruise yesterday.
Tropical Charters chief executive officer Datuk Alexander Isaac said the cruise was organised again this year following the success of the 'Aidilfitri Open Boat with Langkawi Media' programme last year.
"Last year, the participants were only from Langkawi, but this year, we are happy to receive participations from Alor Setar too," he told the press onboard the 'Sensation' cruise ship.
He said he also planned to repeat the programme again next year with bigger participation from the media.
