Merdeka Dinner Party – 7th Sept 2019
Merdeka marked the biggest event of the year and we had close to 100 members and friends of MDA from different nationalities and background joining us to celebrate the 62nd Malaysia Independence Day. Among the participants were representatives from Malaysian Association of the Netherlands as well as the New Ambassador of Malaysia in Scandinavia (attending as the guest of honor). The evening was filled with fun entertainment, sumptuous food and wonderful company. Participants had a chance to network, learn about Malaysia and Denmark through the various games/entertainment as well as test their luck in winning attractive prize through the lucky draw. A big thank you to all our members and friends for making the celebration a memorable one.

Jom Makan (Let’s Eat) Cooking Event – 17th Aug 2019
Nasi Lemak is crowned as the national dish of Malaysia and can be enjoyed any time of the day. This national dish with chicken and beef rendang was the theme of our second Jom Makan. Participants had demonstrated a lot of passion learning to make this dish. A passion that could match the temperature in the kitchen and the heat of the rendang. All hard work was rewarded with delicious plate of nasi lemak that is sure to remain some participants a taste of home.

Jom Makan (Let’s Eat) cooking event – 27th Apr 2019
Roti Jala (lacey pancake) and Curry Puff are typical Malaysian snacks and in our recent Jom Makan cooking event we had gathered to learn how to make these little treats. It was a fun-filled day with participants unleashing their skills and creativity in weaving and making the perfect curry puff edges and lacey pattern on the roti jala. In a true Malaysian spirit, everyone had the chance to bond and enjoy the food made with passion and love.
