Limited Access to the Padang Merbuk for MPIB Run 2015

Kuala Lumpur, 7 January 2015 – Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd (“MPIB”) wishes to inform of the limited access to the roads leading to the Padang Merbuk on 11 January 2015 on account of the general insurer’s annual community Run. The roads leading to the venue such as Jalan Parlimen will be less accessible to vehicles from 6.50 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. to ensure a safer and smoother Race for the participants.

Participants will be running within the coned zone and following the directions of traffic police who are entrusted with the road traffic management. Route marshals are also on duty to assist the traffic police on that day and they are available at every junction and turning of the route. Project Leader Ms. Jayne Liew stresses, “We strive to ensure as safe a Race as we can so that the only thing runners need to concentrate on is running.”

Happy running everyone!

MPIB Run also has Project Good Deeds where they accept pre-loved shoes , and at the Race they will also be making the last collection for their Project Good Deeds, which accept pre-loved sports shoes and tee shirts to be donated to the Orang Asli community. This year, they have 4 Orang Asli settlements as beneficiaries and they hope the total collection will exceed that made in their Project Good Deed Shoes last year!


  1. Happy Running Everyone! Thanks for sharing!
    I definitely cannot run but Project Good Deeds attracted my eyes.

    1. You can donate your old shoes or baju there for Orang Asli Anay.

      I like their initiative.

  2. What is Orang Asli, i melayu illiterate...

    1. Orang Asli

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Orang Asli
      Orang Asal

      Orang Asli (lit. "original people", "natural people" or "aboriginal people" in Malay) are the indigenous people of Peninsular Malaysia. Officially, there are 18 Orang Asli tribes, categorised under three main groups according to their different languages and customs:

      Semang (or Negrito), generally confined to the northern portion of the peninsula

      Senoi, residing in the central region

      Proto-Malay (or Aboriginal Malay), in the southern region.

      There is an Orang Asli museum at Gombak, about 25 km north of Kuala Lumpur.

    2. It's easy with Google. ;)
