Some said Happiness is a Choice but to the Managing Director aka Happy Man Dato CC Ngei ‘Happiness is Compulsory’ at Feruni Ceramiche.
On usual days, I am only following the socialpreneur’s updates on Facebook until last week I decided to sign up for the Feruni Tour after listening to great stories of Dato’ CC Ngei from Lai.
And here I am today for the Feruni tour at PJ today 🙂
Upon arrival for the tour, guests are greeted with the friendly happy officers.
As VIP guests of the day, all of us were given a badge with our name written on it
This man and his team surely knows how to keep you happy from the start because A hungry man is an Angry Man. Surely we are here for a day’s of fun not anger . So breakfast is served at the Happiness Cafe with sandwiches and free flow of coffee and tea 🙂
Done with brekkie? It’s show time by the Man of Tiles. Feruni is certainly detailed in ensuring guests happiness and this is how they do it
Now let’s welcome the one and only Dato CC Ngei Man of Tiles Managing Director of Feruni Ceramiche
Despite being honoured a Dato’ title ,Ngei is one down to earth man where he introduced himself as CC. To ease rememberance, just remember the email in the CC column and CC is my name ‘says the witty Ngei who is dressed just in t shirt, jeans and sneakers
Dato’ CC Ngei welcomed all guests -students coming all the way from Curtin University Sarawak and also working adults from the corporate. The briefing commenced with a sharing on the overview of company from the meaning of the name Feruni , core values CSR programs and also working culture at Feruni. This looks like what I have been doing every Thursday to new recruits. The next briefing I shall intro myself as Teng Teng Teng ( sing my name for me yo)
What comes to mind when we talk about Tiles? Will you ever ever want to work in the tiles industry? No o as the tiles industry is often stereotyped as Boring dull. Coming from a family background who makes a living via tiling. Ngei quit school and has been helping his father since Form 3 . However, the limitation of English language proficiency did not stop Ngei to advanced himself to becoming the man of tiles today.Ngei upholds a vision to transform the industry. Yes and Ideas Do Change the World
With only one office from its humble beginnings to date Feruni has 8 retail stores across Malaysia
Apart from business, Feruni practices the contributing of 10% of profit to the society through various philanthropic efforts like fund raising to the needy, visits to the homes, sponsorship and other sustainable intra CSR programs like Weight Loss challenge, Happiness Bank , Reward & Redemption. Of the successful projects would be the Nepal Earth Quake Relief Donation- a fund raising campaign on Facebook with the collaboration with PKT Logistics – a company spearheaded by Dato Michael Tio who is also a mentor of Dato CC Ngei. The campaign has sucessfully raised over RM350k in just two weeks. Well done!
I did a campaign for this too but the figure was way too far from your amount Dato-s . But I guess RM100k in 2 weeks wasn’t that bad afterall right?
Being a very people oriented company, Ngei surely knows how to pull people’s heart.Clad in Baju Melayu, the happy man surprised the Muslim Ferunians with a sudden visit with Hari Raya goodies in conjunction with festive season..How a staff would not love a boss like you Dato? Honestly, I am already so in love with your company, the personality the moment I heard of you
Positioning Feruni with the concept ‘Affordable Luxury’,a home makeover with tiles is certainly do-able at a very affordable deal which enables customers to enjoy the best of both worlds
and the chapter continues with a guided tour around Feruni. On normal days in part of my job, I take guest around for a tour but today I am a guest to taken around by the Ferunians.
As the saying A picture speaks a thousand words. Therefore I shall these pictures speak for itself of course with captions
The guided tour concluded at the Tiling Academy and all of us were invited for lunch with very delicious food like this
In short this whole tour is Awesome! and it preaches the aim of Happiness . Despite being shouted hmm as usual, I am still happy have truly enjoyed myself very much guys. Thank you to Lai who introduced me to Feruni, Dato CC Ngei and all Ferunians who consistently ensure that the Discover Feruni Tour takes place every week. Kudos to all! Thank you for having me today and in turn I invite you up to the resort for a guided tour by yours truly Irene Chua 🙂
My views on happiness. How to find happiness within yourself ? Be at peace yourself and see the good in people no matter how nasty they are. That’s what I do always and I am Happy ! Remember happiness begins with yourself . Be happy , practice happiness and spread happiness to people around you 🙂
