CIMA organises Family Day at Bako National Park
Posted on May 8, 2010, Saturday
KUCHING: The weather was perfect last Saturday when a group of 20 Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) members together with their families set out for an exciting trip to explore the wonders of nature at the Bako National Park.Organised by the CIMA office in Kuching, the trip was an opportunity for its members to take a break from their normal schedules to spend some quality time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With its pristine rainforest and abundant wildlife, artistic sandstone formation and extensive network of jungle trails, Bako National Park offered this group of city dwellers a chance to appreciate nature’s beauty.
The trip started with an exciting boat ride from the Bako Jetty.
It was a first trip to Bako for most of the members and it was a real eye opener and an unforgettable experience for them.
CIMA member Teo Kin Mia who brought his family commented, “Bako is a great place to visit for a day. The jungle trekking was good with loads of flora and medicinal plants to observe.
“It was a very unique adventure for us CIMA members and families and was very educational. The trails were tough due to the jungle heat but the views were magnificent.”
Committee chairman Ee Guan Heng said, “The jungle trekking was fun but challenging. We even managed to spot a proboscis monkey up in a tree quite a distance away. The boat ride was an experience by itself, watching the fishing village and other beautiful sceneries along the way.”
CIMA was founded in 1919, is currently the world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants with 164,000 members and students operating in 162 countries.
