Discover Feruni Tour @Feruni House of Happiness 

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

Hello I’m Irene

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

Yes, that’s me sitting comfortably on a bean bag in the auditorium. It feels like iHall at Dr Teh’s GPF office

Now let’s welcome the one and only Dato CC Ngei Man of Tiles Managing Director of Feruni Ceramiche

Dato CC Ngei charming audiences in his wittiest way of sharing his journey through story telling

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)

Meaning of behind the name of Feruni

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

It is indeed affordable luxury – home makeover with tiles only at RM1068. Can you believe this ?
