Another theme meeting, "In Mood For Raya" to celebrate the month of Ramadhan, Hari Raya Aidilfitri. It was a celebration of Malays, who fast for a month and in the month of Ramadhan, it's the celebration of life and appreciation. Though Gurney Toastmasters Club was not made up of Malay, we celebrate the festive season with the most of our proud feelings as a pure Malaysian.
The best thing of being a Malaysian is you get to celebrate a lot of festives season but yet, you're not th main race celebrating it ; you can wear any types of traditional costumes, though they dont belong to your culture ; you can learn a lot from other cultures and yet you can still practice your love to your own believes and culture and be extremely proud of it!!
We had this meeting and even encourage everyone to dress up in Malay costumes, namely Baju Melayu or Batik for the men, Baju Kurung and even Baju Kebaya for the ladies.
Benedict clad in his father's Batik, very patriotic, presenting his speech on "What Is Art, What Is Not?"~~
