Location: River Canyon Restaurant, Parramatta
Joined the Australian Malaysian Singaporean Association (AMSA) as part of the sub-committee members in organising their 43rd Annual Dinner.
Assisted them in managing the on-stage performances of the night with help from other members as well to make sure the programmes went on smoothly.
The function kicked off with Australia National Anthem followed by the silat performance by Mr. Latif as the opening ceremony of the event and a Malay song presentation by the Malay community here in Sydney.
Then, the welcoming speech by the emcees of the night along with sponsors acknowledgement and some housekeeping announcement as well as Raffle draw collection.
President of AMSA gave her speech after that and also a keynote speech by Geoff Lee (Parramatta MP) followed by a cake cutting ceremony together with Director of Education Malaysia Australia, Sydney (Hajah Dr. Jumiati).
The much awaited moments of the night were the buffet-styled food of the restaurant (also local Malaysian food catered by Abang Sam) and Raffle draw with the major prize of a return flight ticket to Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines.
There were also some performances throughout the night such as Irish dance, Bollywood dance, medley songs presentation, and Brazilian dance.
Finally, DJ of the restaurant took over for an open floor dance which ended the event of the night.

*Not able to snap photos throughout the whole event (on duty to liaise with performers), so those were the few shots available & credit to one of my mates here, Goku, for some of the shots taken...
