Adibah-Camelia treat in the Offing at Putrajaya Mariott Hotel

SECRETARIES’ week, the once-a-year period that allows secretaries to indulge in events tailor-made for them, is back again at Putrajaya Marriott Hotel.

This time, two strong names in the entertainment industry are set to bring the house down with their presence.

The well-poised Camelia and the multitalented Adibah Noor will take centrestage, with the petite Camelia singing her heart out while Adibah keeps guests entertained with her joviality as she emcees.

Special treat: Adibah (left) and Camelia are planning a surprise for the secretaries’ week event at Putrajaya Marriott Hotel on April 11.
Camelia, who is in the process of narrowing down songs for her 45-minute performance, is only too pleased to be working with Adibah.

“I am a big fan of Adibah as she is a superb singer, an incredible actress and a witty host, and I am very honoured to share the stage with her,” Camelia told a press conference on Wednesday to announce the hotel’s secretaries’ week line-up.

Camelia will sing a few songs from her latest album, Mysticam, as well as songs from her older albums.

She will be backed up by musical director Mac Chew, Andy Peterson (bassist) and Adriane Palikat (drums).

“We are planning a surprise for secretaries’ week that both of us have not done before,” said Adibah.

“If you want to know, please come to the event.”

Asked if guests could expect a song from her, Adibah said: “It depends on the audience’s response – anything can happen.”

“It is our responsibility to those who have bought the tables to entertain them and make sure the secretaries have fun,” said the artiste, whose song Terlalu Istimewa was named song of the year at TV3’s annual Anugerah Juara Lagu song competition.

The song also won in the ballad category and Adibah, who penned the lyrics, was also recognised with an award for best vocal performance.

Putrajaya Marriott Hotel general manager Yeow Hock Siew said that besides the stars, diners would be entertained by the vibrant and energetic Bantus Capoeira group, which will showcase Brazilian dance art; and also Dua Space Dance Troupe, a colourful fusion group which will feature dances in a blend of tradition and contemporary styles.

“As in previous years, we will showcase quality in performance while our chefs showcase a spread of delights,” said Yeow. “We aim to please and the show is guaranteed to please.”

The hotel, which is known for its enticing dishes, is presenting The Marriott Chef’s Buffet Showcase this year, with many offerings from Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Western and Asian kitchens as well as a mouth-watering dessert selection.

The afternoon affair, to be held on April 11 from noon to 2pm, is priced at RM288++, RM248++ and RM198++ respectively for platinum, gold and classic seating categories.

Guests stand a chance to win lucky draw prizes and a grand prize of a travel ticket for two worth RM3,000, along with other attractive prizes.
