Bro Hisham & Sis Shikin Container

Last Saturday Bro Hisham & Sis Shikin had organised a gotong royong to help them sending almost all their belongings back to Malaysia using a container.

Apart from MSS Society members, several Bruneians and Arab came to help them. The men helped the couple to move their things from Friday night and Saturday morning. The women helped Sis Shikin in cooking and serving food for all those who helped.

The gotong-royong ended at around noon. Here are some pictures taken during the gotong royong.

Eidul Adha Celebration Party

Last Sunday (21st November 2010), Malaysian Student Society Bangor University had arranged an Eidul Adha Celebration Party. The party was held in University's John Phillips Hall.

We are lucky because almost all of Malaysian studies in Bangor came to the party. Several Malaysian from Caernarfon, British friends and supervisor and their family too came to the party. Not to forget the attendance of all Bruneian Students in Bangor University.

Participants come as early as 11:00 AM in the morning. Early birds set up the whole place and wait for the others to come with their foods. We started to eat after a speech and a prayer recital by the committee advisor, Dr. Abdul Aziz Jaafar.

The food was pot luck from all of the participants. The vast variety of Eid celebrations foods had certainly makes attendees forgot for a while of being home sick during this festive season.

The game started after lunch. The kids started first with 'Colouring Contest'. Followed by 'Win-Lose-Or-Draw' game, and 'Musical Chair' game; which was divided into three categories: Children, Male & Female. The party ended with the giving of presents to all of the winners.

MSS Bangor would like to thank you for all contribution and attendance to the party.

Here are some pictures of the celebration.
