Hospitality imbued in the hearts of all Malaysians.
To mark Malaysia Day on September 16, Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) has released a special video celebrating local hospitality.
The 4.17-minute video is a social experiment that involved 20 Malaysians who showed that we are united in diversity.
In a statement on Monday (Sept 10), Malaysia Airlines said that the 20 people from various age groups attended the social experiment, not knowing what was in store for them.
It added that they only knew they were part of a special Malaysia Day project.
“As Malaysians, although there are many things that set us apart, we share common values and principles that bind us. This includes prioritising the needs of others above our own. This is Malaysian Hospitality in every sense of the word and what we as Malaysians are best known for.
“Our hospitality is a reflection of the combined values of unity, tolerance and warmth which comes as second nature to all Malaysians regardless of race and religion. These values are also a representation of us as the national carrier,” its chief operating officer Izham Ismail said in the statement.
Izham added that Malaysia Day was a celebration of the coming together of all 14 states and federal territories of Malaysia as one nation that cuts across multiracial cultures and beliefs.
“We are taught from a young age to be understanding, tolerant and considerate of everyone we meet. These are the intrinsic values that we, as Malaysians practice. This is also what binds us as a nation and unites us in harmony,” he said.
