Malaysian Club's Welcome Event
Massey University Albany Malaysian Club (2019/R2)
First of all, thank you to ASA for the approval of our grant round 2 for our welcome party. We really appreciate the financial support for our event. The welcome party was organized to let the members of the club to know each other and to promote our culture’s dishes. The event was successful and it received a lot of support from our club members. Thanks to all of them, the event was fun and interesting. We are really grateful for the supportive members and without them the event would not be successful.
The event started with the introduction of the committee for 2019. The high committees were introduced first and followed by the other exec committees. We had 41 participants for this event and it is a good chance to let the members know the committee for Malaysian Club for 2019. The event continued by inviting the members to had a feast we already prepared. The food prepared are Malaysian cuisines which is very popular in Malaysia which is Nasi Lemak (Coconut rice) served with Sambal (Chilli Sauce). The other side dishes and snack prepared were Mee Hoon Soup, Curry puff and Doughnut. Surprisingly, we got a very nice feedback from our non-Malaysian students. It was an exciting feeling to know other people love our traditional food. We had Japanese, Indonesian, and Arabians who attended the welcome party.
Overall the event was successful. Although there were some weakness in the organizing and preparation, we will take this as a lesson and improve in our next event. Last but not least, thank you to all who contribute to make this event successful. Cheers!
