“So far, 50 contestants have confirmed their participation in the competition,” he told reporters at the Kota Darulnaim Complex here yesterday.
Wan Roslan said the competition, to be held at the Perak Jubilee Hall here, will be divided into four categories and the winner of each category will receive a cash prize, a kris and a trophy. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
