THE Malaysia Hobby Expo 2023 returns for its fifth edition, after a hiatus since 2019 due to the pandemic. Following its annual occurrence from 2016 to 2019, it now “resurges” to engage and bring together hobby enthusiasts and practitioners in Malaysia.

The event this year will take place on December 2nd and 3rd, promising more than 50 hobby activities and 250 exhibitors, including radio-controlled cars (RC), vintage collections, extreme sports, pets, books and magazines, as well as arts and crafts.

Muhammed Fidzri Syafeeq, the founder of Malaysia Hobby Expo, stated that the existence of this expo is inspired by international events from Japan, Beijing, Shizouka, and Moscow.

“This year’s target is 25,000 people per day, an additional 35 percent from the 2019 target,” he said.

The event is organized by Specta Group Venture with MAEPS Serdang as the official venue and Shopee as the main sponsor. Every hobby will be gathered in several designated zones such as Hobby Bazaar, Hobby Group, Vintage Bazaar, extreme sports zones, pet zones, and outdoor zones.

For those interested in attending, tickets are RM20 for adults and RM5 for children for both days. Each ticket purchase also qualifies you to participate in a lucky draw.

The lucky draw prizes include a modified Perodua Myvi, two Yamaha LC V8 units, a 55-inch TV, Sony PS5, and 10 units of G-Shock watches. All prizes are reportedly valued at RM50,000.

The Malaysia Hobby Expo 2023 will also feature the “Passion of Sound” concert on the first day, December 2nd, 2023, which will showcase singers such as Ruffedge, Gerhana Ska Cinta, Insomniacks, Saixe, and Hujan.

This year’s event is also special with the organization of the Tamiya Mini 4WD MHXCUP2023, which is expected to be the largest race for 1:32 scale battery-powered cars.

The race offers prizes worth over RM30,000 with 300 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and Brunei. For ticket purchases and further information, visit https://myhobbyexpo.com or their Facebook page.

  • As a young teacher at the time, I remember attending year-end social studies department parties at the McClory house, a red Cape if I remember correctly, in Salem. Charlie had hired me to develop an alternative social studies program — rock climbing, prison visits, canoeing down the Ipswich River… He was encouraging and supportive in the face of some of the raised eyebrows that I generated with such a curriculum. Later in my career, when I was in special education, I co-taught a U.S. History class with Charlie. One day, out of the blue, he burst into song with Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Sixteen Tons to illustrate the plight of the working man. The class sat in stunned attention. One of the girls in that class is now my daughter-in-law and the mother of two of my grandchildren. She remembers the incident well. I will always remember the McClory family as gracious hosts and, in Charlie’s case, as a key figure in my teaching career. My best wishes to the extended family.Stuart DeaneNewburyport
