100-day nation Myvi road trip tops list of “What’s Your Perodua Story?” project
A love of adventure and the right car is what drove Mr Tew Ngee Hoo (34) from Selangor to go on a 100-day road trip around the country in his Myvi – covering some 8,000 kilometres. Mr Tew recalls that throughout his journey, he did not pay a single cent for tolls, instead took the back roads to truly enjoy the Malaysian experience.
“We started off on our road trip with my Myvi; from Selangor down to Johor Bahru then up to the East Coast – all the way to Kota Bharu and from there through the “elephant highway” to Perlis then back home to Selangor,” he said in his story.
“Throughout the 100-day trip, we did not even go on any highway nor pay a single toll as we stuck to the country side and paid visits to local villages. We faced some difficult roads but we managed well with my Myvi,” Tew recollects.
Tew is one of the 20 storytellers chosen by Perodua on its third meeting with different customers sharing their experiences with Perodua. The session was held at Perodua Head Quarters in Sungai Choh with the attendance of Perodua’s senior and top management. He mentioned that he encountered very little difficulty during his trip because he serviced his vehicle regularly and added that he was very fortunate to have been able to undertake this trip. Perodua Managing Director Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said he and his team look forward in meeting the storytellers as it would help the national carmaker to improve further.
Aminar said that Perodua is also extending this project to a longer period to facilitate as many entries as possible. For those who are interested to participate and share their story, log in to www.peroduastory.com.my.
