Under the Embrace programme, we take corporate initiative to benefit the local community. We are extremely grateful for this opportunity to give back to society. We wish everyone a happy and healthy Year of the Wood Horse,” said Suleiman Tunku Abdul Rahman, Director of Communications at Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa and Golden Sands Resort.
