Maybank MyStories Unsung Heroes Dinner Reception
10 Dec 18
Maybank hosted a Dinner Reception for its 2018 MyStories Unsung Heroes on Friday, 30 November 2018. The event was held at Level 51 of Menara Maybank at Jalan Tun Perak, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur. Among the unsung heroes invited for the reception were MACVs Lt Col Ir Raymond Goh Boon Pah (Rtd) and Maj Patrick Wong Sing Nang (Rtd). Sgt Adenan bin Aini (Rtd) who had served with Maj Patrick Wong in 8th Ranger Battalion was also present. MACVA would like to congratulate all three of them for being chosen as 2018 MyStories Unsung Heroes.
In telling their stories, the sacrifices they have made and the barriers they have broken for the love of their country and fellow man, Maybank hopes to encourage Malaysians to step out of their comfort zones and be spurred into action. On the award plaque was befittingly written "Those who serve, guide and inspire the people". At 76 years old, Lt Col Ir Raymond Goh efforts in volunteer works is exemplary. Maj Patrick Wong puts his men before himself to ensure their safety with the belief that race and religion play no part in combat. He embodies the spirit of teamwork and integrity while fighting for the Country with his men.
Sgt Adenan, a proud Sarawakian who fought bravely alongside Maj Patrick Wong was one of the first from his hometown to serve in the Army. Badly injured during a mission, Maj Patrick Wong made an unprecedented decision to prioritise medical attention to him, saving his life. Sgt Adenan believes that regardless of race, religion and culture, members of the Army are ultimately part of one unit that support each other in the fight for their Country. Present at the reception were Datuk Abdul Farid Alias, Group President and CEO; Shariffuddin Khalid, Independence Non-Executive Director and Dato' John Chong Eng Chuan, Group CEO Community Financial Services. Datuk Mohaiyani Shamsudin, Maybank Chairman presented the award to the recipients. MACVA would like to express its sincere gratitude to Maybank for its efforts in honouring Malaysian Veterans.
