members' of the Alfa Romeo Owners' Club Singapore have just held a very
successful and enjoyable 2nd Family Weekend: Express di Lanjut 2009, from
6th to 8th Jun 09, which built on the achievements of the first weekend.
Annual Family Weekend, AROC SG ventured towards the Kampung Lanjut, situated in
Kuala Rompin, Pahang, on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The drive, which
is always a major part of such events, was a mix of highway and b-roads through
plantations and kampungs (i.e. local villages).
Hosted by Serai di Lanjut
Golf & Beach Resort, the group had the opportunity
to experience a variety of activities such as golf, a
firefly river cruise and a jungle trek. As Rompin was also
hosting its Sea Festival, this gave participants the
opportunity to take in some of the local sights and sounds.
It was certainly
a time for the extended ‘family’ to get together. While
regular active members were present, a few long-time but not
so active members were able to join the event. One of the
highlights was the celebration of the first birthday of one
of the “AROC babies” – Xavier Wong.
While in Kuala
Rompin, AROC SG was able to meet up with members of AROC
Klang Valley, a Malaysian affiliate club, who were spending
the weekend at a neighbouring resort. As a first meeting
between the two clubs, it also marked the first step towards
future coordinated events and activities.
This event was
made possible with the support of Serai di Lanjut Gold &
Beach Resort as well EuroAutomobile Pte Ltd, the official
distributor of Alfa Romeo in Singapore.
