The last event of Malaysian Festival is the highly anticipated Makan Night. Makan Night is our annual ‘eat-your-heart-out’ event alongside performances and awards. This year, it was held at Jubilee Hall, Parnell Trust. Although it was a cold winter night, the love from everyone warmed each other up!
The night started off with our members arriving and getting seated. Quickly, the hall was filled with members and sounds of laughters and people catching up.
Our wonderful emcees for the night — Natasya & Manbu 🙂
Shortly after the introduction and greeting our members, Annas started off the prayers and we invited Puan Su from Education Malaysia New Zealand (EMNZ) to give a few words. After that, Allan (President of UMSA) and Baya (President of AUC) invited Puan Su for a cake cutting ceremony to officially start off Makan Night 2017!
Bawang Merah & Bawang Putih fighting over for their husband’s attention.
To start off the night, we had an adapted play of “Bawang Merah, Bawang Putih”. It is a traditional folklore about the sisters, Bawang Merah (onion/shallot) and Bawang Putih (garlic). It is said to have a similar plot to Cinderella. But we improvised and made it slightly more comedic with a talking fish!
On and all, it was a great play and everyone enjoyed it. Kudos to the team of actors working with our director and practicing hard. To that, a round of applause to the props team for making the props and made sure that things went well!
We also want to thank our food supplier for the night for cooking up delicious food for us and made sure that we ate to our heart’s content! 🙂
When are Malaysians the most happy? Eating.
Congratulations to Raghu & Suet Ying for being the Best Dressed for the night!

Here are the people who have worked relentlessly for the past year to make Malaysian Festival a success. After countless meetings, messages and ideas being thrown around… it is such a great feeling to know that Malaysian Festival was a success.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank each and everyone of you for supporting this event. We hope you enjoyed Malaysian Festival and had a wonderful time at Makan Night! ❤
Serious photo? Nah, we prefer goofing around being ourselves!
