I went to the Festival Anggerik few months ago, held at the newly opened convention building in Shah Alam. Shah Alam Convention Centre or SACC is located at section 14 Shah Alam, opposite to Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam and next to SACC Mall. This building is fully owned by PKNS and had hosted many events so far such as such as a concert by Asia's renowned artists, Siti Norhaliza from Malaysia and Kris Dyanti from Indonesia, in conjunction with the grand opening of the building on 27 April 2010 this year, property exhibitions and the recent big event, The Malaysia Film Festival in October this year.
The festival Anggerik showcased orchids which you rarely seen. The highlight was a competition for orchird lovers to compete and display their beautiful and unique orchids to visitors. The festival was organised by the city council of Shah Alam or MBSA to promote public interest in orchids in consistent with Shah Alam as the Orchid City or 'Bandaraya Anggerik', especially to residents of Shah Alam and to attact orchids lovers, local and overseas tourists to come visit Shah Alam. The festival is held annually by MBSA. Orchird has become part of landscape and steetscape in Shah Alam. Shah Alam is really a beautiful green city with a peaceful atmosphere. A nice city to live in.
