Also present were Head of Immigration Miri Office Noryncosma Jauk and her deputy, Mohammad Osman; KWSP Assistant Manager Mohammad Hafez Hamidon and Approval Officer Muhammad Hakim, and PTPTN Miri Branch Manager Mohammad Lutfie.

The top three teams were awarded medals, trophies and hampers. Coming up tops was ‘KWSP B’ comprising of Muhammad Hakim, Mohammad Arsad, Sulaiman Abdul Majid and Mariana Adeni.

In second place was ‘Velocity Stikers’ comprising of Noryncosma Jauk, Audrey Ruby Palance, Jameson Malang and Samson Philip, while ‘The Trouble Maker’ consisting of Aprilla Johnny, Awang Madhi, Zairina Bahjam and Basil John placed third.
