Hong Kong's TVB to film Kudat islands

KUDAT: Minister of Special Tasks Datuk Teo Chee Kang personally welcomed and led a film crew from Hong Kong’s Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) in filming Balambangan Island and Maliangin Island for the TV show ‘Scoop’ here.

The crew members were here to film Tommy Lam Wai Yin and three others who survived 10 days adrift at sea before they were rescued by Vietnamese fishermen.

Lam, Spaniards David Hernandes Gasulla and Martha Miguel, and Malaysian Armella Ali Hasan were reported missing on May 2 when they failed to arrive at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau after leaving Kampung Batu Sirih, Balambangan Island.

The Tanjong Kapor assemblyman promoted the tourism sector in Sabah and Kudat when interviewed by the host of ‘Scoop’, Darren.

Teo hoped that more tourists from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan would visit the state and Kudat.

He said the development potential of Kudat remained relatively untapped and urged more tourists and investors to explore the opportunities there.

Teo also introduced the crew to Tun Mustapha Marine Park, which would be gazetted by the state government soon, and attract more tourists to Kudat.
