Kuching (Sarawak), Friday, 19 October 2018 – Bringing romance to the airwaves and to Bintulu, CATS FM recently partnered with Samalaju Resort Hotel to launch the “Romantika Samalaju” radio contest for married young couples with a special prize at stake – an exclusive garden wedding celebration at Samalaju Resort Hotel in Bintulu with all the trimmings.
The contest ran from 27th August to 7th September and saw a bounty of couples submitting their unique love and romance-fuelled entries. Ultimately, it was Omaradzi Setia Junid and his soulmate Qurratuanie Nurul’Ain Yahud who were chosen as the winners by the organiser and sponsors. Their romantic garden reception took place on 22nd September 2018 and included a complimentary stay at the resort, inclusive of the bride’s make up and wedding gown and the groom’s suit.
Omaradzi married Qurratuanie just a year ago, making the contest win a timely one for the newly wedded couple.
As the reception got underway, guests were treated to the landscape and natural beauty of the resort’s surroundings, coupled with the glitz and glamour of the event and the sunset overlooking the sea. One of the day’s highlights came as the couple walked down the aisle serenaded by the beautiful music of Zah Amirul who performed acoustically at the reception.
Speaking on behalf of Samalaju Resort Hotel, Mr Teoh, said: “Samalaju Resort Hotel is situated strategically on a 23-acre site along the cliffs of Tanjung Similajau and offers breathtaking views not only of the South China Sea but also the famed Similajau National Park. The layout of the hotel is designed to be an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the Samalaju Industrial Park – ideal for a romantic reception.”
Asked about his big day at Samalaju Resort Hotel, Omaradzi, said: “This is really a dream come true for us. The garden reception at Samalaju Resort Hotel is more than we could have asked for. It’s just beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay there.”
Alvin Justin Miduk, the Sales & Marketing Manager, CATS FM, said the campaign had achieved its ultimate objective, which was to showcase the beauty of the venue and its great facilities to the public via an integrated radio campaign. “I strongly believe that through the Romantika Samalaju campaign, coupled with continuous integrated commercial messaging, this will raise brand awareness more than ever before. For instance, when a radio station presenter talks about ‘our friends at Samalaju Resort Hotel,’ the audience is hearing about a friend of a friend – this has a strong effect in bringing a brand closer to the people,” added Alvin.
Romantika Samalaju at Samalaju Resort was also sponsored by Samalaju Hotel Management Sdn Bhd.
